Stoke City and US international midfielder, Brek Shea, looks to be on the move come January.

Due to a lack of playing time with current Premier League side Stoke City, Shea will be moving on a short-term loan to Barnsley of the Football League Championship. The US international is itching for more playing time in a World Cup year so this move would likely be beneficial to both parties, although the level of play would be a step down for the 23-year old winger. Barnsley currently sit in last place with 16 points and a -21 goal differential through 23 games. Shea has played just 32 total minutes so far this season for Stoke - a sub appearance in a 4-0 defeat at Everton back in November. The loan to Barnsley is expected to be short-term.

Davinson Sanchez was responsible for an own goal early that Tottenham could only find an equalizer for as they dropped points against relegation-zoned Southampton in a 1-1 final.

It was a bleak late afternoon on England's south coast and an illness that kept Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen out of the contest may have been a bug going around the team as Spurs were a sluggish shell of the side that lit up Everton last weekend. In the 15th minute, a cross heading for a dangerous area was there for Sanchez to clear, but he guided it just inside the near post past a helpless Michel Vorm. It seemed Spurs got a wake up call from that misfortune, as they were able to level minutes later. First, Eric Dier had a shot hit the post, then, Harry Kane was able to head home a Ben Davies corner moments later. That would be the peak of their performance, as they lacked creativity in the second half, lost Serge Aurier to injury and Kane dragged a chance wide in the closing moments to seal the draw.

Southampton remain in the relegation zone but will be happy to earn a 1-1 draw with Tottenham as they were helped by an early own goal.

The Saints were looking for a bit of luck as underdogs in this one and they got their wish in the 15th minute, when Ryan Bertrand's low cross was directed into the Tottenham goal by Davinson Sanchez, giving Southampton the early advantage. It turned out to be crucial, as Spurs were able to equalize a few minutes later and it appeared the favored side may go on to put the Saints away. As time went on, in tough weather conditions, the Saints began to take control of the game, with fine performances by James Ward-Prowse creating chances and Jack Stephens having a header go inches wide. In the second half, they were the better side, but they could not find an end product. One chance came late on, when 17-year-old Michael Obafemi came on for his debut and side-footed a shot from close range wide of the target. The result should buy Mauricio Pellegrino another game to keep his job, he is still on the hot seat.

David Moyes moved quickly to ease fears that Aaron Cresswell is set for another spell on the sidelines but admitted the injury to Manuel Lanzini is a worry.

The West Ham full-back, who has been hampered in recent weeks due to an ongoing back problem, was carried from the pitch in time added on sparking concerns that he had suffered an ankle injury. However, in the post-match briefing, Moyes revealed Cresswell was suffering from cramp [in his right calf] and he is expected to be fine for next weekend’s FA Cup fourth-round clash at Wigan. By far, the greater concern was the injury sustained by Argentine playmaker Lanzini who will have a scan on his hamstring over the coming days. "We hope Mano's isn't serious," said Moyes. "It’s the Lanzini one that we're worried about. I don't think you can suddenly say, okay we'll go out, see if someone else is out there waiting to be bought of the level of Lanzini, because I don't think you've got that."

Michel Vorm is on standby for the game at Southampton on Sunday after Mauricio Pochettino flagged Hugo Lloris a doubt for the trip due to illness.

The Tottenham captain has started all but one Premier League game this season [missing the Crystal Palace win in November], after picking up a hip flexor strain during the Champions League victory over Real Madrid. Paul Gazzaniga deputised that day, but Vorm is back in contention and poised to make his first league start since April 2017. "I don't know [if Lloris will be fit]," Pochettino told reporters on Friday. "Difficult to say. We need to wait and then assess him [on Saturday] and if he's available or not. I think it's a flu or a virus. I think everyone, with this weather, has struggled a little bit. It's an epidemic across Europe, not just here in the UK." Harry Kane also missed sessions during the warm-weather training camp in Barcelona earlier in the week, but the in-form striker re-joined the group at the Enfield Training Complex on Friday.

Manchester United delivered a classic José Mourinho era performance as they overcame Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.

For a few hours at least, the gap to league leaders Manchester City is down to nine points. The first half was uneventful, as Burnley forced just two saves out of David De Gea whilst United never managed to make superior possession translate into a single shot on target, highlighting where the guile of Alexis Sanchez would help them. United's best movement in the first half came down the left where Young and Martial were having some success, and it was the latter who opened the scoring with a great finish off the crossbar with United's first shot on target. Burnley almost hit back immediately as Gudmundsson struck the cross bar from a free-kick. United stepped back and left Burnley attack them, and the hosts created a number of half-chances they ultimately couldn't finish whilst United spurned a few good opportunities on the counter.

Thanks to Oumar Niasse's equalizer, Everton secured a point at home in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Sporting a new-look side with Cenk Tosun flanked by Theo Walcott up top, the Toffees struggled to mesh. Things were compounded when Jay Rodriguez put the Baggies ahead in the seventh minute after a Grzegorz Krychowiak pass found a breach in the Everton defense. But in the final 30 minutes of the match, Sam Allardyce sent Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse on to change the match, and within 56 seconds of entering, Niasse played the star. Following a scramble in the box, Rooney played the ball across to Walcott, who flicked on to Niasse for the equalizer. But the point comes at a cost as James McCarthy was stretchered off in the 57th minute with a gruesome injury.

Two second half goals shared equally between West Ham and Bournemouth mean that both sides continue their moves away from the relegation zone.

Bournemouth grabbed the lead against the run of play in the 71st minute with their first shot on target of the game. Junior Stanislas delivered a through ball to Ryan Fraser who slammed it past Adrián. However the Cherries' lead did last very long as substitute Javier Hernandez reminded David Moyes why he deserves a starting place in the team. The Mexico striker reacted fastest to finish after Begovic had saved a shot from the in-form Marko Arnautovic. Stanislas went closest to scoring the winner but Adrian was equal to his effort.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez both scored as Leicester City moved up to seventh in the table with a 2-0 win over Watford at King Power Stadium.

Both sides traded chances before Leicester took a deserved lead in the 39th minute. Having seen two major chances in the early stages, Vardy latched onto a through-ball and drew a penalty from Watford center-back Molla Wague. The England international took the honors and made no mistake, firing the home side in front with his 10th league goal of the season. Wilfred Ndidi was lively throughout and had a pair of powerful efforts blocked in the second half, but it was Mahrez who sealed the match in stoppage time. The Algerian made sure of all three points with moment of individual brilliance, as he dribbled past Christian Kabasele and finished into the bottom corner from a tight angle.

Nacho Monreal scored and provided two assists inside of 13 minutes as Arsenal battered Crystal Palace 4-1.

It was a route from the outset as Arsenal scored all four of their goals inside of 22 minutes as Monreal, Iwobi, Koscielny, and Lacazette all helped the Gunners start to move on from their soon to be former talisman Alexis Sanchez. The only downside was Nacho Monreal going off in the first half after laying waste to Palace for just over 30 minutes.

Watford have now lost eight of their last 11 league matches following a 2-0 defeat at Leicester City.

Watford have struggled since their hot start to the season and won just once since November. Marco Silva deployed an attack-minded lineup at King Power Stadium but the trio of Richarlison, Andre Carrillo and Troy Deeney were unable to impact truly put Leicester under pressure. The Hornets went behind on 39 minutes when Molla Wague brought down Jamie Vardy and the striker converted from the spot mark. Wague was then forced off in the second-half with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, while Riyad Mahrez capped off the match with strike in the stoppage-time. The fitness of Wague will be a concern for Silva as his side are already without a handful of defenders.
