Having already been labeled a doubt earlier in the week, Arouna Kone has been officially ruled out by Roberto Martinez for Everton's match against Tottenham Hotspur.

According to Everton's official Twitter page, Martinez stated" "Arouna Kone has had a set back. It's more serious than we first thought, so he won't be available for the squad." Without any additional detail, one can only assume the set back involves his knee that was being treated.

Boaz Myhill and West Brom surprised Liverpool at the Hawthorns as the keeper made five saves and kept a clean sheet in the nil-nil draw.

Apparently Tony Pulis got his message across. After three miserable weeks in a row, the Baggies have responded with two consecutive clean sheets over teams ahead of them in the table. Last weekend it was a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. This week Boaz Myhill recorded five saves and kept a clean sheet as neither team was able to find the back of the net at Anfield. Neither side were particularly impressive but there were a lot of clean sheet points to go around.

QPR's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League were hit as Charlie Austin missed a penalty as they could only draw at home against West Ham.

Austin's first-half penalty, awarded after a handball from James Collins, was saved by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian to keep the score at 0-0. At the other end the Hammers' left-back Aaron Cresswell had a 25-yard free-kick tipped over by QPR goalkeeper Robert Green, but that was the only real chance for the away side. The hosts pushed for the win and thought they had won it when Richard Dunne headed in, but the goal was ruled out by referee Mike Jones. The draw keeps QPR in the relegation zone while West Ham remain in 10th.

It wasn't a scintillating match but Simon Mignolet made a key save on James Morrison when it counted to keep Liverpool even in the nil-nil draw at the Hawthorns.

The draw effectively dropped Liverpool out of the Champions League running with Manchester City six points ahead with a match yet to play against Aston Villa this week. Even if Liverpool win their make-up match in mid-week they will be hard pressed to make up the gap to fourth. Mario Balotelli got a rare start and didn't contribute much while Jordan Henderson and Philipe Coutinho at least had decent chances. Overall, the loss showed all of the same issues as the Reds FA Cup semi-final loss to Aston Villa last weekend. Not a good way to be closing out the season.

Swansea City received a huge performance from Nelson Oliveira as they became the latest club to beat up on Newcastle United with a 2-3 win at St. James' Park.

Oliveira seems to have answered the question as to who is the clear striker behind Bafetimbi Gomis with his play today. He had a hand in all three goals. He scored the first one on a header by way of a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner. He then played a decoy when Sigurdsson scored his second, drawing defenders away to allow Siggy room to operate. He then grabbed an assist as Jack Cork played a 1-2 and Oliveira found Cork in front of net for what turned out to be the game-winner.

Graziano Pelle was sharp for Southampton today, scoring twice, but the Saints would allow Tottenham to erase two leads as the battle for fifth place ended in a 2-2 draw.

Coming into today, Pelle had scored just one league goal in 2015, but he broke out of his slump in convincing fashion. His first goal was pure determination. Sadio Mane raced into the final third of Spurs but was dispossessed. Ryan Mason took the ball to turn up the pitch but he slipped for a moment and Pelle pounced, slotting a low shot past Hugo Lloris. After Spurs had leveled, he scored from a header thanks to a lovely cross from Shane Long. Spurs would equalize once more shortly thereafter though and the two sides traded blows down the stretch but ultimately a draw was the result, and deservedly so.

Tottenham erased 1-0 and 2-1 deficits to earn a point at St. Mary's in a 2-2 final against Southampton.

Pochettino's first visit to his former club's ground was an entertaining affair. Eric Lamela accounted for their first goal as they answered the one scored by Graziano Pelle just before halftime. Eric Dier sent a cross in that was headed by Harry Kane into Lamela's path and the Argentine finished. After Pelle scored again in the second half, it was Nacer Chadli who then responded. Dier again was the supplier, and Chadli scored from a tough angle to pull Spurs level once more. It would end that way but not without chances from both sides. Spurs dominated possession but they will be happy to have come back twice in this one to grab a point.

Wayne Routledge has been ruled out for the remainder of this campaign after surgery to cure an ongoing and persistent ankle problem.

Swansea made the decision earlier this week to allow Routledge to go under the knife in attempt to ensure the winger is fully recovered for pre-season and his absence will be welcomed by Nathan Dyer who has struggled to nail down a starting place since mid-February. Routledge will now join Kyle Naughton in the treatment room – also out for the season with an ankle injury – while Garry Monk has decided to recall Modou Barrow from his loan spell at Nottingham Forest. Bafetimbi Gomis [hamstring] is targeting a return to action within the next two weeks.

Hull City boosted their chances of avoiding relegation as Dame N'Doye scored both goals in a hard-earned 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

N'Doye was heavily tipped by the Rotoworld team to perform well this this game-week and he didn't let anyone down with an outstanding display at Selhurst Park. The Senegal striker tapped home his first goal after Robbie Brady's effort was deflected into his path and sealed the points and his brace in the closing stages on the counter attack. Hull fully deserved the win, limiting a disappointing Crystal Palace side to a couple of tame efforts from Glenn Murray, and move in to 16th, one point clear of the relegation zone. The Eagles stay 11th.

A hip injury threatens to rule Daniel Sturridge out for the remainder of the season after Brendan Rodgers admitted he was "unsure" when the striker would return.

Sturridge has battled a number of injury related problems throughout this campaign [calf / thigh / hip] restricting the England international to just 7 league starts and his absence has been reflected in his sides indifferent season. Missing a striker to deliver at the "top level every week" Rodgers will need to consider his options if he hopes to challenge for the Premier League title. Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert look surplus to requirements while striking duties have fallen to Raheem Sterling with varying degrees of success. Divock Origi will of course return after his season long loan deal at Lille but the young striker has struggled in Ligue 1 and was recently voted the leagues most overrated player.

Peter Odemwingie is coming to the end of his recovery from an ACL injury and could be ready for the bench as soon as Week 34.

This is by no means a viable fantasy option for Week 34 but if Odemwingie plays even a bit part against Sunderland then he could be in line for a more significant role over the last couple of weeks of the season. With little to achieve over the final five matches, giving Odemwingie a little playing time to help push his recovering along before the summer could actually be pretty high on Mark Hughes' agenda. Odemwingie has had some big fantasy days so he could represent an interesting option in Weeks 37 and 38 as one of the few mid-table players with something to play for.

Roberto Martinez has stated that Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar is "very unlikely" to make the squad for their match against Manchester United on Sunday.

It looks like one more week for the South African international. Kevin Mirallas returned and scored for the Toffees last weekend, so Martinez has two in-form wide men to name to his XI with Aaron Lennon also playing well. Martinez also went on to confirm that Romelu Lukaku will be ready to go, much to the dismay of Red Devil fans.
