Jack Colback stunned Cardiff City with a late equalizer to round out the scoring in an eventful 2-2 game.

Cardiff City controlled a big part of the game and deservedly led 2-0 but Sunderland put together a comeback late in the game. Jordon Mutch and Frazier Campbell put Cardiff ahead before Steven Fletcher and Colback scored two late goals to tie the game. Sunderland deserved to earn a point in the game after pressuring Cardiff for the last half hour but are still in last place and need to find a way to win games to get out of the relegation zone.

Arsene Wenger has declared Danny Welbeck fit for Week 13 against Burnley after holding him out an extra week as a precaution.

Danny Welbeck came back from his last injury and didn't last a full match before coming off with a hamstring injury. With Welbeck recovering Arsene Wenger decided to exercise caution and kept him out against Spurs. After the exceptional performances from Sanchez and Ozil against their North London rivals, expect Welbeck to start out on the bench against the Clarets on Sunday.

Manchester United has revealed detailed team news ahead of Brighton's visit to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

First choice centre-back pairing Phil Jones and Eric Bailly have been ruled out but Mourinho is not concerned as he still has Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, and the fit-again Marcos Rojo at his disposal. Mourinho also confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will feature at some point in the tie as he continues his comeback from injury: "I prefer him on the pitch than off the pitch... We managed to give him 15/20 minutes in both matches, he needs more of that, so hopefully, tomorrow, we play him again." Paul Pogba is a confirmed starter for Saturday but he is unlikely to play the full 90 as Mourinho tries to protect his star man from fatigue.

Newcastle won't have starters Jamaal Lascelles and Christian Atsu available to face Watford this weekend.

The Newcastle duo have missed the last few weeks due to injury with Lascelles suffering an ankle problem against Bournemouth in Week 11. The captain looks more likely to be ready for Gameweek 15 than the midweek fixtures next week. However, there is good news on the defensive front with Paul Dummett in full training. Said manager Rafa Benitez: "Lascelles is getting better, but still he will need some time, and Atsu is the same. It’s too early to say (when they will be back). "But Merino’s been doing part of the training session, and Dummett has done the full training session, so that’s positive news for us."

Yannick Bolasie took another step towards a return to competitive action when he joined the first-team in training on Wednesday.

The winger has been sidelined since rupturing knee ligaments in 2016, but speaking ahead of the Europa League match against Atlanta, David Unsworth said he expects Bolasie to return: "Probably [in] late December [or] going into the new year. Yannick’s had four sessions with the Under-23s and had a gym session this week as well. He’s absolutely chomping at the bit, which is great." The plan will be to reintegrate him back into full training over the next month. The caretaker boss also revealed another long-term absentee – Seamus Coleman – could be back in January while Ross Barkley and James McCarthy [both hamstring] are said to be a couple of weeks away. Morgan Schneiderlin [toe] should return on Sunday and Mason Holgate has a short-term groin issue.

Oumar Niasse has become the first Premier League player to be retrospectively charged with 'successful deception of a match official' following Saturday's 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park.

Trailing 1-nil to an early James McArthur strike, Scott Dann was adjudged to have fouled Niasse in the box, and Leighton Baines calmly despatched the penalty to draw Everton level. However, under new Football Association rules, the incident was subsequently reviewed by an independent three-person panel which decided the match official had been deceived by an act of simulation. Everton appealed the verdict, but this was rejected and Niasse will now serve a two-game ban starting with Southampton on Sunday. The forward was deemed surplus to requirements by Ronald Koeman last season, but after returning from his loan spell at Hull City, Niasse has been one of the Toffees standout players this term. His absence could see Wayne Rooney or Kevin Mirallas return to the starting XI.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg signed for Southampton from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016 with great expectations on his shoulders.

However, it hasn't always been easy for the Dane who fell down the pecking order at St Mary's during Claude Puel's reign last season. It hasn't been any better under Mauricio Pellegrino and the defensive midfielder has played just six minutes of Premier League football against Brighton when he came on as a sub. In Southampton's current system, Pellegrino has deployed Oriol Romeu alongside Mario Lemina screening the defence but with the latter injured and the former suspended for one game after picking up a yellow card, it seems that Hojbjerg may finally get a chance to shine alongside Steven Davis. Even if Lemina does return in GW13, Hojbjerg may still play as Davis' abilities are needed further forward to aid the Saints' attacking which is struggling for goals.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has spoken of the need for his side to get more individual players scoring goals to boost their survival chances.

The Seagulls have thirteen league goals so far with Pascal Gross influential in the scoring and creation of 8 of those with Glenn Murray the scorer of four. Just four other players have scored - Hemed (2), Izquierdo (2), Knockaert, and March. Hughton admired the effect of Gross but explained that the goals need to be more spread out across the squad: "He has made a big contribution from the time he arrived... We have to look to get our goals from somewhere. We’ve got two big, old style centre-halves and we need to get a bit more from our own set plays, just redress that balance a little bit." The manager also reaffirmed his belief in José Izquierdo to provide a good contribution by the season's end.

David Moyes is confident of having Marko Arnautovic available for Friday after tests confirm the winger did not break his thumb at Watford.

The Austria international, who was having one of his more influential games since signing for the Claret and Blues, was reluctantly replaced in the 74th minute after he was accidentally trodden on by defender Marvin Zeegelaar. Arnautovic was sent for an x-ray, but despite heavy swelling, the results were positive and there was no fracture. The new West Ham boss is also hopeful of having Andre Ayew back in the match-day squad after he missed out at Vicarage Road due to illness. Meanwhile, James Collins could feature for the first time since September having recovered from an ankle ligament injury. A decision on Michail Antonio will be made closer to kick-off as he struggles to overcome badly bruised ribs and a niggling hamstring complaint. Jose Fonte [foot] and Sam Byram [thigh] are definitely out while the game is expected to come too soon for Javier Hernandez.

Tottenham continued their fine play in the group stage of the Champions League and helped put the loss in last weekend's North London derby behind them as a pair of Dele Alli assists led to a 1-2 win at Borussia Dortmund.

It was a come-from-behind win on the road at that for Tottenham, who can guarantee finishing first in its group with only a draw against Apoel Nicosia in a couple of weeks. Dortmund grabbed the opener with their talisman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, just after the half hour mark. Mauricio Pochettino went with a different look to his formation, with Heung-min Son partnering Harry Kane up front while Alli and Christian Eriksen played a bit more central and deep alongside Harry Winks. Both strikers would find the net, with Kane leveling the match four minutes into the second half and Son scoring the winner. The two assists for Alli should encourage fantasy owners, who have seen only one goal and no assists from the young Englishman over the past six gameweeks.

Liverpool's defensive issues made themselves present once again, this time allowing Sevilla to score three unanswered goal to erase the Reds lead in a 3-3 draw.

The Reds are still top of their group and are assured of going through to the knockout stage of the Champions League, but last night's performance symbolized why they may not be able to meet the objectives they set for themselves this season. The attack exploded right out of the gate, with Roberto Firmino bagging a brace and Sadio Mane's header made it 0-3, which is where the score stood to begin the second half. The defense then collapsed, giving up silly fouls and allowing the Sevilla crowd to urge on the home side. The Reds would then give up three goals from the 51st minute on, two from set pieces, the other by way of penalty when Alberto Moreno fouled the opponent in the box. Moreno's performance was especially scrutinized, making one wonder if Jurgen Klopp will look toward Andrew Robertson or James Milner to play at left back this weekend.

Paul Clement expects Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham to overcome a back problem in time for this weekend.

The Swansea attacker was helped off on Saturday, having tried [and failed], to play through the pain at Turf Moor after suffering a lower back issue. However, Clement believes it wasn’t anything serious despite Abraham leaving the field on a stretcher. "His back went into spasm, but I don't think there is an injury there. He is a bit stiff at the moment, but we think he will be okay for Bournemouth." The 20-year-old was not part of the training group on Tuesday but he is expected to rejoin the first-team at some point this week. Should there be any doubts regarding the fitness of Abraham, then Clement maybe tempted to rest his top scorer given that Wilfried Bony is back in contention after recovering from the niggling hamstring strain which has hampered his progress since returning to the club.
