Victor Anichebe made his first goal for West Bromwich Albion a memorable one, coming on as a substitute in the second half and promptly scoring the goal that would level the match with Liverpool in an exciting 1-1 contest.

With Nicolas Anelka out injured and Shane Long off to Hull City, the seldom used Anichebe got a rare crack at some pitch time and made the most of it. WIth Liverpool in possession deep in their own territory, Kolo Toure made a wayward pass that Anichebe was able to intercept easily and finished strong in the bottom left corner of the net. The defense played admirably, especially given a first half injury to Jonas Olsson that saw him forced into an early exit. Zoltan Gera was also solid in attack, seemingly at the center of every chance for the Baggies with the exception of the Anichebe goal.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a brilliant free-kick to give Swansea a 1-0 win over Aston Villa.

The goal came in the 13th minute after Jores Okore fouled Jefferson Montero on the edge of the box. It was the only goal of the game but it was a beautiful one. American goalkeeper Brad Guzan should probably have done better but Sigurdsson deserves credit for the curling strike. Villa pushed late to try and earn an equalizer but Lukasz Fabianski made two huge saves to keep them out. Swansea have been great in recent weeks and earned another win here in impressive fashion. They sit in seventh place and are keeping their European dreams alive.

Goodison Park is not a fun place to be right now following Everton's frustrating 0-1 loss to Stoke City.

The Toffees had been sputtering and this fixture looked to be ripe for a turnaround. Instead, one terrible scenario after another unfolded. Leighton Baines looked to be breaking away for a clear chance on goal when he was brought down from behind by Jonathan Walters but the referee would only issue a yellow card. Then just moments later, Bojan was brought down in what looked like a soft foul by James McCarthy and Stoke were awarded a penalty which Bojan converted. Then, just before halftime, Tim Howard came up limping and had to be replaced to begin the second frame. Meanwhile Everton were creating more than their share of chances, dominated possession, had more shots on targets, took more corners, but just could not for the life of them find the net. Roberto Martinez is a respected manager and Everton had big dreams entering this season having locked up Romelu Lukaku permanently, but something has gone wrong for the Toffees and their fans want things to change post haste.

There wasn't much to like for West Brom on Boxing Day but at least they have a goal from Ideye Brown to show for the visit of the Champions.

Things went downhill quickly for the Baggies who conceded goals in the 8th and 13th minutes against Manchester City. They conceded again in the 34th minute which effectively ended the match as a competitive fixture. Ideye Brown was introduced in the 67th minute for Silvestre Varela and scored 20 minutes after his introduction so at least there was something that Albion could salvage as good news from the day

Raheem Sterling led the line for Liverpool and helped the Reds to three much-needed points with the only goal of the match as they earned a 0-1 road win against Burnley.

It was one moment of magic from the Reds today but they will happily take the points even though their attack still has much to improve upon. Burnley were the better side in the first half and were at least equal to Liverpool over 90 minutes, but the one moment bit them. Phillipe Coutinho collected a loose ball as Pool pushed toward the Claret goal, and he flicked a smart pass to Sterling who used his pace to knife through the defense and dance around the keeper to finish smartly with his sixth league goal this season. Call it a coincidence, but the Reds first win since Week 14 against Leicester. Pool need to do better than to only collect wins against promoted sides and will face a tougher test against Swansea on Sunday.

Papiss Cisse wasn't good enough for the starting eleven but he scored Newcastle's only goal in their 3-1 Boxing Day loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Alan Pardew opted to start youngster Adam Armstrong at forward rather than Papiss Cisse and it didn't work out as Newcastle looked decidedly second best to the Red Devils on Boxing Day. Armstrong looked naive trying to cut a breakaway into the heart of the defense. Not only did it cut the attack short but the ball bounced to Wayne Rooney in midfield who initiated an attack that led to Manchester United's first goal. Starting Cisse over Armstrong might not have made a difference in the long run but Cisse did score a consolation goal in the 85th minute.

Christian Eriksen scored a beautiful curling free-kick to give Tottenham a 2-1 win over Leicester.

Spurs didn't look too impressive today but were able to grind out a 2-1 win over the Foxes. Harry Kane continued his hot form by scoring early on before Leicester equalized through Leo Ulloa. Eriksen then struck his free-kick in the 71st minute to win it for Spurs. Leicester pushed hard towards the end of the game and came extremely close to equalizing on a few occasions but Spurs were able to hold on through a good performance from Hugo Lloris.

David Silva continues his return to the line-up with his third goal in his last two matches as City eased past West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Manchester City seem to be coping just fine without a recognized forward available as they went ahead 3-0 over the Baggies before conceding a late Ideye Brown goal for the final 3-1 score line. City got an early opener from Fernando who pounced on a rebound in the 8th minute. Yaya Toure scored the second from the spot in the 13th minute after David Silva drew a penalty from Joleon Lescott. Finally, Silva scored with a classy strike across the face of Ben Foster's goal for City's third. The Brown goal in the 87th minute was a nice story for Brown but otherwise irrelevant unless you were hoping for a City clean sheet.

Wayne Rooney scored two and created the other as Manchester United raced to a 3-0 lead before letting Newcastle score late for a 3-1 final on Boxing Day.

Wayne Rooney was the story of the day on Boxing Day. For United's opener he picked up a clearance on his side of half field and drove forward. He got the ball to Juan Mata who served it in to Falcao who centered for Rooney who had continued his run. United's second saw Rooney score again before his long cross found Robin van Persie in the penalty area for United's third. Overall, it was a virtuoso performance for Rooney who appears at his best in the role Paul Scholes made his own at United.

Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones suffered an injury early in today's match and was replaced by Simon Mignolet.

Jones had won the starting job from Mignolet after subbing in for him earlier in the season due to an injury but it's now an injury to Jones that has forced him off the pitch. Mignolet will be an average fantasy option in the Reds' match against Swansea on Sunday.

American goalkeeper Tim Howard suffered an injury during the team's Boxing Day match against Stoke and was replaced at halftime.

Howard conceded from a questionable penalty earlier in the match and thus ends the day with a bad fantasy score. We don't know much about the injury other than he couldn't continue and we'll have to wait until the end of the match to hear more. Howard was replaced by backup Joel Robles, who could be a solid fantasy choice if the American misses time.

Chelsea legend and captain John Terry scored the opening and eventual game-winning goal for the second straight match as the Blues continue to pace the league at the top of the table with a tidy 2-0 win over West Ham United.

Chelsea were in complete control in this one but they did not get their first payoff until a half hour in, when a Cesc Fabregas corner was headed by Diego Costa to the foot of Terry who tapped it in. Costa would have yet another big day himself, scoring the second goal in the second half. West Ham turned the ball over, Eden Hazard threaded a pass to Costa, and the Spaniard shook off three defenders to fire a patented missile past the Hammer keeper. Hazard was a doubt to make this match and went to ground just two minutes in, but he shook off the knock and played the full 90 minutes.
