Vito Mannone marked his return to the Emirates by watching four goals go past him as Sunderland lost 4-1 to the Italian keeper's former club Arsenal.

On a day when Arsenal honored one former player, Dennis Bergkamp, they weren't nearly as kind to another returnee in the form of Vito Mannone. It is hard to blame the goalkeeper given the quality of the defending in front of him. Sunderland allowed two spectacular passing sequences for the first and third goals. The second goal was the result of a telegraphed back pass to Mannone that should never have been made. The final goal was a wide open header from Laurent Koscielny on a corner kick that Mannone was powerless to stop.

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.

Adrian made the most of a match in which he was constantly under fire by Chelsea's attack, making several saves, but the volume was too much to handle as the Blues would beat him twice and the Hammers would leave Stamford Bridge empty-handed in a 2-0 loss.

Adrian made seven official saves and most of them were of the acrobatic variety. A couple of them came in the game's opening half hour and it allowed West Ham to keep things level until Chelsea finally broke through. The Hammers meanwhile offered very little threat, with their best two chances being supplied by substitute Morgan Amalfitano late on when Chelsea were already sporting a two goal cushion. Though Adrian is bound to have an unappealing fantasy score from this match, he should be a solid buy in kinder fixtures ahead.

Eden Hazard had been deemed doubtful to play on Boxing Day due to a knock he picked up last week but was able to get fit in time and start against West Ham United.

Hazard not only started but shined in the Blues' 2-0 victory. He assisted the second goal of the match to Diego Costa and played the entire 90 minutes. He is still at risk to be rested and Sunday's match against Southampton could be the one. Make sure to have a backup available if you are playing him during this holiday season.

Fantasy managers should keep the expectations for Andy Carroll rather low for the time being.

Carroll has played well in the past few matches but has to face Chelsea and Arsenal in his next two matches. That is no easy task even for an in form striker and Carroll is still regaining his form after being out for so long. The Hammers' schedule eases up after that and Carroll could be a great buy early in the New Year.
