Yannick Bolasie could miss the Africa Cup of Nations next month after he suffered what appeared to be a serious looking knee injury against Manchester United.

The former Crystal Palace winger overstretched for a ball midway through the second half, and following lengthy treatment on the touchline, Bolasie lasted another four minutes before dropping to the Goodison turf once again. Following an impressive start to his Everton career, Bolasie has struggled in recent games, a dip in form which has coincided with the Toffees’ downturn. Today’s 1-1 draw ensures Ronald Koeman’s men have just one win from their last 9 Premier League encounters, although they did take a point from the Etihad. The absence of Bolasie, could open the door for West Ham loanee Enner Valencia who has been restricted to nothing more than a bit part role since his arrival in July.

Jordan Henderson was booked for a foul on Junior Stanislas, his challenge saw the Cherries winger helped from the pitch, but the substitution proved to be a game changer.

Trailing 2-0, Ryan Fraser was introduced on 55 minutes, and within 30 seconds the young Scot had lured James Milner into committing a clumsy foul in the box. Bobby Madley awarded the penalty and Callum Wilson confidently dispatched the spot kick. Emre Can restored Liverpool's two-goal lead, but it was that man Fraser who drilled home a loose ball to peg back the visitors once again. Then, just three minutes later, Fraser turned provider to tee up Steve Cook for a grandstand finish. Bournemouth had momentum, and were finally rewarded deep into time added on when Nathan Ake grabbed a dramatic winner. Fraser deservedly took the Man of the Match award for his part in the turnaround and the 22-year-old is expected to make his third Premier League start of the season at Burnley next weekend with Stanislas [ankle] set for a period on the sidelines.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan got a rare start against Everton but it didn't make a great deal of difference as United could only muster a draw at Goodison Park.

Manchester United were the better team for most of the match without actually being particularly good. It wasn't a very fluid affair but it was one that the Red Devils had the better of for most of the match. In the early going United had more possession and the better of the few chances on offer with Zlatan scoring just before halftime to give Jose Mourinho's men a 1-0 lead despite little contribution worth mentioning from Mkhitaryan. They kept the lead until late substitution Marouane Fellaini fouled Idrissa Gueye in the box leading to a Leighton Baines equalizer from the spot. United continue to fall further and further off the pace.

Marouane Fellaini came on to "close the door" on a 1-0 United lead only to concede the penalty that led to the eventual 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday.

It was turn back the clock day as Marouane Fellaini was once again the toast of the Goodison Park faithful. Unlike when he starred for David Moyes at Everton, today's cheers came for a massive mistake from the big Belgian in a Manchester United uniform that allowed Everton to draw even. It's hard to say the result was deserved as Everton struggled to create chances for most of the afternoon. They did finish strong irrespective of the penalty and it was enough to earn them a solid point.

At half-time the script was being followed at the Vitality stadium. Liverpool were cruising, 2-0 up. Then, the Cherries fought back to win 4-3.

In a dominant first half performance, 'Pool took the lead through Mané who held off Ake and slotted past Boruc with ease after a Can through ball. Origi made it two only two minutes later. Boruc rushed out but failed to win the ball, leaving Origi to run around him and finish from a tight angle. Bournemouth came out in the second half and stopped sitting back, with Ryan Fraser introduced in the 52nd for Stanislas. He won a penalty with his first touch, with Wilson providing the finish. Mane and Can combined again to swot down Bournemouth's challenge. Can powered in after a Mane drag back on the right. Fraser scored after a counter attack in the 75th minute to give the Cherries a way back into the game and Steve Cook grabbed it. He pivoted in the box to lash in a volley set up by who else... sub Ryan Fraser! The drama wasn't over though, it was end to end as both teams sniffed a winner but Ake got it for Howe's men, benefitting from a Karius fumble.

All eyes were on Arsenal's hat-trick hero Alexis Sanchez in a 5-1 win against West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

The Chilean playmaker contributed to four of the club's five goals with an assist on the Gunners' opening goal from Mesut Ozil in the 24th minute to go with his second-half hat-trick to bring him even with league leaders Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa with 11 goals. Sanchez scored his hat-trick in a 14-minute stretch, starting in the 72nd minute when he worked past two defenders to beat Darren Randolph to the far post. He followed that up in the 80th with a curling effort before capping the night after being sent through by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who added a goal in the 84th to bury the Hammers.

There was nothing West Ham could do to stop Alexis Sanchez, who scored a second-half hat-trick, in a 5-1 home loss to Arsenal.

The pressure on manager Slaven Bilic will only continue to grow as the Hammers' winless streak extended to five Premier League matches—the club hasn't won since October 22 against Sunderland—to keep them just one point from dropping into the bottom three. James Collins left the match early in the first half while Cheikhou Kouyate and Michail Antonio both missed out due to injury, but the only positive note West Ham can take from the drubbing came in the return of Andy Carroll, who headed in the rebound of Dimitri Payet's free-kick off the crossbar in the 83rd minute.The road doesn't get easier for West Ham, who will now face Liverpool next weekend.

Injury and suspension riddled Watford predictably dropped a 3-1 decision to high flying West Brom.

With much of the first choice defense out either injured or suspended Watford were well beaten by West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday. To make matters worse Walter Mazzarri lost former Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra to suspension after he (over)reacted to a dubious James McClean tackle. We'll have to wait to see how many matches Pereyra misses.

Jonathan Walters and Marc Muniesa provided first-half goals as Stoke City cruised to a 2-0 win over Burnley at home on Saturday.

Stoke City got off to a slow start but began to find their groove after defender Bruno Martins-Indi headed a Xhedran Shaqiri cross against the post. The Potters did take the lead 10 minutes later when Jonathan Walters netted his 40th Premier League goal for the club. Walters' goal was brilliant flick as he finished off a well-struck cross from Mame Diouf, following a one-two with Shaqiri. Stoke doubled their advantage in the 35th-minute when Marko Arnautovic's cross found Marc Muniesa, who hammered past Paul Robinson for his first career Premier League goal. The pair of first-half goals proved enough for Stoke to secure their second straight win and break into the top half of table, while the loss leaves Burnley just three points above the drop zone.

Burnley remain winless away from home after a 2-0 loss at Stoke City on Saturday.

With Tom Heaton unavailable through injury, veteran Paul Robinson made his second start of the season. However, it made no difference as Stoke City defeated Burnley thanks to a pair of unstoppable strikes. Burnley started the match on the attack but fell behind after 20 minutes when Jonathan Walters produced a stellar finish that looped over Robinson and into the net. Robinson was again unable to do much in the 35th-minute, as the Potters doubled their lead through Marc Muniesa's first Premier League goal. The 2-0 defeat marked Burnley's fifth defeat in six matches on the road and leaves the Clarets just three points above the drop zone. Manager Sean Dyche and his side will look to end a three-match losing streak when they face Bournemouth at home next Saturday.

Swansea City managed to win a goalfest last week but had no answers for Tottenham as Spurs scored five times unanswered to grab a 5-0 win.

It couldn't have been a much more one-sided affair. Tottenham managed over 20 shots on the day while Swansea mustered only one, which failed to go on target. The defense was exposed as the match wore on and the attack, which featured Gylfi Sigurdsson starting in a center forward role, had no answers. Despite conceding five, Lukasz Fabianski did well to keep the score from being even more embarrassing. Bob Bradley has been experimenting with several lineup variations but he is running out of combinations and the Swans look to be bad shape.
