Shane Long will be evaluated after coming off in the 77th minute of Hull City's 2-0 win over his former team West Brom on Saturday.

Shane Long has only come off the pitch two other times since coming to Hull City in January and one of those was as a time wasting tactic with his team up 2-0 in the dying minutes. The fact that he came limping off after 77 minutes on Saturday may seen him miss some Hull City's midweek match. Watch this space for further updates covering Week 32 and beyond.

Brighton and Hove Albion tried their best, but were the latest to fall prey to the resolute Burnley defense, as the two sides played to a 0-0 final.

Charlie Taylor got his first start at left back and Phil Bardsley kept his place over a fit Matt Lowton as Burnley once again played their brand of football with success. Brighton were the only side threatening to score as the first half wore on and a big moment came in the 35th minute, when James Tarkowski fouled Glenn Murray in the box. Lucky for the Clarets, Murray skied his spot kick. The best chance for Burnley going forward came in the 74th minute when Chris Wood attempted a chip on the keeper but it took a fine save to keep it out. Fantasy investment in Sean Dyche's defense continues to deliver.

Watford's struggles have only continued following a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Huddersfield Town for its fourth loss in the last five.

The Vicarage Road faithful were not in high spirits from the start after giving up the opening goal in the sixth minute. Then, two defensive gaffes led to two more goals starting in the 23rd minute as Aaron Mooy found himself completely unmarked at the back post while Laurent Depoitre took advantage of a Jose Holebas slip in the 50th minute. In between, Troy Deeney was sent off with a straight red card for a cynical tackle from behind on Steve Quaner that will see him miss the next three matches. The only bright spot for the Hornets was a 68th-minute goal from Abdoulaye Doucouré, his sixth of the season.

Mesut Ozil scored in the 23rd minute for the only goal of the match as Arsenal beat Newcastle at the Emirates.

It was another frustrating performance for the Gunners as they dominated but couldn't kill off the match. They will be satisfied with a much needed three points but will need to finish attacks better if they hope to end the season back in the Champions League.

Wing-back Marcos Alonso's goal deep into first-half stoppage time was just enough for Chelsea to overcome Southampton 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

It could have been a lot more comfortable for the defending champions had they been more clinical, however the goal from a long-range free-kick was all they had to show from a first half where they dominated. Fabregas and Pedro both went close in the second half whilst Hazard had the ball in the net but saw his effort disallowed for an offside in the build-up. Southampton now have not won in five attempts. Ahead of the game both managers made surprise omissions from their starting line-ups with Morata (who had been passed fit) on the bench whilst Hazard led the line flanked by Willian and Pedro whilst Van Dijk sat for the Saints.

Brighton and Hove Albion are seeking their first win in some time but a missed penalty by Glenn Murray made the difference as the Seagulls had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Brighton managed to end a three game losing streak but they will feel like they wasted a chance to get three points today, as they were the side most in control throughout the contest. Chances came consistently in the first half. Murray got a header on target but it was saved and Anthony Knockaert managed to ping one off the post. The critical moment came 35 minutes in though when Murray managed to draw a penalty after being fouled in the box. To his chagrin, his power shot down the middle skied over the bar. Burnley are tough enough to crack once over the course of 90 minutes and the failure to convert the spot kick would haunt Brighton as they could only bend the Claret defense from then on, without breaking it.

Aleksandar Mitrović will not be a part of the squad when Newcastle take on Arsenal at the Emirates.

Speaking ahead of the game, manager Rafa Benitez confirmed the hot-headed striker has a "little problem" with his back which will keep him out of the clash. Mitrovic has been little more than a bit part player this term – just 89 Premier League minutes – while he is yet to start a game. The Serbian looks surplus to requirements and may leave during the January window if Newcastle can bring in reinforcements – Danny Ings is one option having been linked with a loan move following his recovery from injury. Dwight Gayle is expected to lead the United attack on Saturday with Joselu providing back-up from the bench. Paul Dummett will be included in the squad for the first time since the opening weekend and Isaac Hayden could return to the side in place of Jonjo Shelvey who begins a two-match ban. Jesus Gamez is also missing after picking up an unspecified injury in training.

A persistent knee problem is expected to keep Marouane Fellaini out for the remainder of 2017.

The Manchester United midfielder suffered a knee ligament [medial] strain while on international duty in October and spent a month on the sidelines. But, despite his return, Fellaini was still hampered by the problem and he hasn’t featured in the matchday squad since the win over Brighton in game week 13. He will now miss the entire festive programme and with his current deal due to expire in 2018, the 30-year-old may have played his last game for the club. Eric Bailly is another absentee after Jose Mourinho confirmed a decision has been taken for the defender to undergo ankle surgery. "I don’t say [he’s out] for the rest of the season, but it’s for the next two or three months." Fortunately, United are well-stocked in the heart of defence with Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind all able to play centrally.

After having been called out recently by manager Roy Hodgson, Christian Benteke broke out of a slump with a goal and an assist as Crystal Palace beat Leicester City handily, 0-3.

Easily Palace's finest result of the season to date and they did it against a Leicester side who had been red hot and they did it on the Foxes' ground. The Eagles opened the scoring in the 19th minute, when Andros Townsend sent a cross into the box and Benteke finished with a strong header. Twenty minutes later, Palace were on the counter and Benteke sent the ball through to a streaking Wilfried Zaha, with the latter slotting home. Any thoughts of a Leicester comeback was stamped out when they went down to ten men in the second half, but Bakary Sako managed to add another goal in the dying moments, curling a ball into the top corner after being teed up by Reuben-Loftus Cheek on yet another counter. After such a miserable start to their campaign, Palace have now gone seven unbeaten in league play.

Leicester City were in for a surprise this afternoon, putting up a dud at home against Crystal Palace in a 0-3 final.

There aren't many clubs entering the weekend as hot as the Foxes had been, but you would never have known it seeing their display today. Riyad Mahrez and the rest of the attack were virtually invisible in the first half, while the defense conceded twice, including on a counter-attack. They looked to have cut the two goal deficit in half on the hour mark, but a Vincent Iborra headed goal was disallowed as the midfielder fouled his defender before the ball came his way. Moments later, Leicester ended all hope of finding a positive outcome when Wilfred Ndidi took a dive in the box, picking up his second booking for simulation and sending jeers around King Power Stadium. Palace would then tack on another goal late to complete the lopsided result. A battle with Manchester United awaits next weekend.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola won't have to wait much longer to see reinforcements in defense.

John Stones has missed the last month of the season after sustaining a hamstring strain that has thinned City's backline. That, combined with an injury to Vincent Kompany last weekend, doesn't give Guardiola too many options as the club enters the festive period. However, Guardiola said he is hopeful Kompany can return in the next week, although not tomorrow against Spurs, while Stones is eyeing a return around Boxing Day: "He’s much, much better. I think he’s at four weeks [of his recovery]. The doctor said he would be out between four and six. In one or two weeks, he will be ready."
