Romelu Lukaku ended his loan spell at Everton by scoring his 15th goal of the season and the Toffees kept Hull City down all afternoon in a 0-2 win.

While parent club Chelsea struggled to find a reliable striker more often than not, Everton are forever grateful for the Blues' gift of a loan. The Toffees made a push for a Champions League spot and certainly experienced no regrets in the post-David Moyes era as Roberto Martinez did a superb job in securing wins throughout the year. James McCarthy scored the Toffees opener today, fed by Steven Naismith. Then in the opening moments of the 2nd half, Leon Osman found Lukaku who shrugged off a defender and got the ball round the keeper. Where Lukaku will be playing next season is up in the air but if he is still in the PL, he will be a coveted fantasy asset.

Mauricio Pochettino was quick to allay mounting injury concerns after Harry Kane was replaced with two minutes, plus injury time, remaining in today’s fixture with Liverpool.

The in-form striker appeared to grab his left hamstring in the dying moments and was immediately substituted sparking fears that he could be set for a spell on the sidelines. But, to the huge relief of more than two million FPL managers, the Tottenham boss confirmed his withdrawal was due to fatigue and not injury: "He's tired, three games in one week and the effort was amazing from him." Pochettino went on to wax lyrical about the striker who once again scored to take him to the top of the goal scoring charts. "He is a fantastic player, one of the best strikers, it's difficult to find words to describe him - he's unbelievable, the effort when we don't have the ball - so professional." Kane will be rested in the Carabao Cup with a view to returning in the early kick-off at Old Trafford next Saturday.

A Premier League single-game attendance record was set today as Harry Kane contributed two goals and an assist en route to Tottenham's convincing 4-1 win over Liverpool.

Whatever nerves Tottenham were holding while playing at Wembley were eradicated today, as over 80,000 people showed up to watch an impressive display by Spurs. They got an early goal to take away any pressure, when Kane received a Kieran Trippier ball, kept his balance while rounding the keeper and found the back of the net. Eight minutes later, it was 2-0 when Kane angled a lovely ball to Heung-min Son and the latter slotted home. Liverpool would pull one back not long after, but Dele Alli's goal just before halftime, smashing home a ball cleared perfectly into his path, kept the momentum with the home side. Kane capped off his lovely day in the 56th minute, poaching a ball home after an initial shot from Jan Vertonghen. Kane went down late and was removed, but it looks initially to be a minor cramp issue.

Dejan Lovren had an afternoon to forget, forcing Jurgen Klopp to substitute the defender in the first half as Liverpool would get outmatched by Tottenham, 4-1.

Tottenham would get off to a flying start, scoring twice in the first twelve minutes, and Lovren was partially, if not completely, at fault for both goals. He allowed Harry Kane to get behind him easily for the first goal and then misread a header attempt, allowing Kane to easily find a teammate for the second strike. Klopp made the switch around the half hour mark, not long after the Reds pulled one back when Jordan Henderson delivered a nice through ball to Mo Salah and the Egyptian international clanked it in off the far the post. Any thought of a comeback was thwarted just before halftime though, when Spurs added a third goal. Liverpool created a few more chances in the second half, but their best chance, a blast by Philippe Coutinho, was saved well by Hugo Lloris. Lovren's days as a starter may be coming to a quick end.

Arsenal had already come from behind to lead when Idrissa Gueye was dismissed after seeing his second yellow card.

Things just keep getting worse for Ronald Koeman as Everton couldn't maintain an early lead and lost 5-2 to fall into the relegation zone. Wayne Rooney scored early from a Gana steal and assist. Arsenal scored three and saw Gana dismissed before garbage time goals from Niasse, Rasmsey and Sanchez.

It was confirmed by Sean Dyche following Burnley's defeat at the hands of Manchester City that Sam Vokes was absent from the squad due to an abdominal strain.

Vokes was on hand at the Etihad and it appears the injury is not serious, as it was not discussed prior to the game and Dyche didn't imply the striker would be missing further time. That may put him in contention to start next weekend's match against Newcastle, as the extent of Chris Wood's hamstring injury is yet unknown. Ashley Barnes provides a final option if needed, but their attack would be in much better shape if one Wood or Vokes is fit.

Sofiane Boufal dribbled three quarters of the field on his own and slotted home for the only goal as Southampton beat West Brom 1-0.

This match was an unlikely spot to yield a candidate for goal of the year but that's exactly what happened. The rest of the match was frenetic but ultimately lacking in quality end product. That was until Sofiane Boufal picked up an errant ball in his own half and dribbled through most of the West Brom defense leaving defenders on the ground in his wake. He slotted home from just outside the box for a must-see Winer for the struggling Saints.

Burnley's usually tenacious defense was up against a tough assignment and the Clarets would come away empty at the hands of Manchester City, 3-0.

Considering the opponent had been averaging just a shade under five goals a game over their last five, Burnley were not embarrassed in their efforts today against the Citizens. In fact, one could argue the match should have been level heading into the final 20 minutes. The Clarets gave up the opening goal by way of penalty and one could argue that City's Bernardo Silva took a dive. To make matters worse, Chris Wood had to leave the game in the opening half with what looked to be a hamstring strain. Still, Burnley put in their usual blue-collar shift and were still in the game heading into the final stages. Unfortunately, City delivered a one-two punch that put any hopes of a result out of reach. The Clarets will aim to pick up points next weekend when they host Newcastle.

Leicester City broke its six-match Premier League winless streak with a 2-1 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

If manager Craig Shakespeare's firing was meant to serve as a wake-up call, it certainly showed with Leicester City looking inspired in its first match without the manager. The scoring began in the 25th minute after Riyad Mahrez's sharp cross into the box was directed into the back of the net by Federico Fernandez for an own goal. Soon after the start of the second half, it was Mahrez again who was able to set up the goal after finding Shinji Okazaki to double the club's lead, which held despite a goal from Alfie Mawson 10 minutes later.

Bournemouth overcame their previous profligacy in front of goal this season on their way to earning a 2-1 win over Stoke City at the Bet 365 Stadium.

The Potters had just one win in seven heading into this tie and that record has only worsened in defeat. Bournemouth grabbed a 2 goal lead early on, first through Surman and then Junior Stanislas. The second goalscorer provided the first to his midfield teammate, who stuck in a tidy finish into the bottom corner of Jack Butland's net. Stanislas himself scored from the penalty spot after Benik Afobe was fouled by Ryan Shawcross. Afobe had started up front alongside Lys Mousset with both Defoe (hamstring) and Josh King (illness) unavailable. Stoke plaed their way back into the game, dominating the second-half but managing to muster up just one goal through Diouf who converted a knock-down by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. The Cherries remain in the relegation zone but their first away win of the season will come as a relief to Eddie Howe.

Huddersfield Town snapped a six-match winless run with a shock by defeating Manchester United 2-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Manager David Wagner stated before the match that he would not change the identity of his side and the decision paid massive dividends. Manchester United had only conceded twice in eight league matches this season, but the Terriers struck twice inside five minutes during the first-half. Aaron Mooy provided the first when he fired home after Tom Ince's shot was blocked by De Gea. Laurent Depoitre then rounded the goalkeeper minutes later and slotted home to double the lead on 33 minutes. United pulled one back through Marcus Rashford in the 78th, but the Town defense held firm and took all three points despite a nervy finish. The victory was their first against Manchester United since 1952 and undoubtedly a massive confidence boost for the Yorkshire club.
