In search of some Premier League experience in their promotion season, Burnley have signed former West Bromwich Albion defender Steven Reid to a one year contract.

While it is hardly a headline-worthy signing, Burnley have moved to add experienced depth in the form of Steven Reid. Despite having been around forever, the 6"1" right back has rarely played a full season at any level of English football. He hasn't managed 30 appearances in a season since the 2005-06 season when he was with Blackburn and he averaged only 18 appearances per season over his for top flight campaigns with the Baggies. Experience, yes. Count on him, no.

Roberto Martinez will be happy his Everton side were able to come away with all three points this weekend as his injury-ravaged squad were just able to edge out West Ham at Goodison Park.

The Toffees went into game week 12 with up to eleven players at risk or ruled out through injury while Aidan McGeady was another late omission following a bout of sickness. Leighton Baines, Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson all failed late fitness tests but Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy were able to start the game. However the biggest surprise was the inclusion of Belgium winger Kevin Mirallas - having missed the previous two months – who managed to complete 66 minutes before his replacement Samuel Eto’o scored the winning goal. But as the game was drawing to a close Steven Naismith overstretched for a ball causing a muscular tear – his withdrawal will almost certainly mean a spell on the sidelines although the initial assessment revealed the problem won’t "keep him out for too long."

Newcastle were hoping to make it five Premier League wins on the spin as Queens Park Rangers came to St James’ Park having failed to take a single point on the road this season. However the home were missing a number of key players as Alan Pardew was forced to reshuffle his side.

With Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor both missing central defensive duties were left to the returning Mike Williamson and Paul Dummett but it was in midfield where the Geordies were struggling. Cheick Tiote, Mehdi Abeid and Gabriel Obertan were all ruled out which meant Ryan Taylor was afforded his first Premier League start in over two-and-a-half years following injury and it was the returning defensively midfielder who left the field in tears on 34 minutes. Taylor broke down unchallenged in the first half and following a quick assessment it became apparent he could no longer continue – although tests on his knee are still ongoing – the player himself has confirmed there are "no major problems."

Cristian Eriksen lead the way for Tottenham to a 2-1 win over Hull City.

Eriksen was very active after Hull City went down to 10 men due to Gaston Ramirez being sent off. The midfielder hit a stunning a free kick which bounced off the post and into Harry Kane's lap, who tapped it in for the first goal. Eriksen then proceeded to score in stoppage time to give Spurs the win. The red card really hurt the Tigers as they had control of the game before that and they'll have Ramirez to blame for this result. Spurs are now in 10th place but are only two points away from fourth, providing us with one of the best races for Europe we've seen in recent years.

Crystal Palace shook off an early Liverpool goal and gradually took over the contest, with a pair of goals in the final 15 minutes making the difference as the Eagles win 3-1.

Down a goal after 90 seconds, Palace could have been in for a long day but Dwight Gayle leveled things after 17 minutes and the crowd at Selhurst Park could smell blood. Gayle was gifted a kind rebound from a Bolasie strike that clanked straight off the post and squeaked it past Simon Mignolet. The Eagles went into an extra gear in the second half and again Bolasie was at the center of seemingly every chance. Impossible to contain, he was drawing extra defenders toward him whenever he was on the ball and that opened up space for others. He would find Joe Ledley wide open in the 78th minute and Ledley nutmegged Mignolet to give the Eagles the lead. They would put the game to bed when Mile Jedinak scored his fourth of the season with a picture perfect deep free kick that no keeper could reach. Now out of the relegation zone, Palace will look to build off the win when they travel to Swansea next.

Liverpool continue their poor start to the season by squandering an early advantage and eventually were outmatched by Crystal Palace in a 3-1 loss.

The day began perfectly. Lambert, a Liverpool native, scored his first goal for his childhood club just 90 seconds in. Adam Lallana delivered a fantastic deep lob pass directly to Lambert's foot as he entered the area, and Lambert finished in what looked like footage from Southampton 2013. The wheels began to fall off though as the Eagles tightened up in the back and Pool reverted back to their lackluster attacking display. Pool are facing their worst season after 12 matches since the first season of the Premier League in 1992. Brendan Rodgers has to make some drastic changes post haste.

Newcastle United continued their sizzling form by winning their fifth consecutive league match and sixth overall as Moussa Sissoko unlocked a goalless affair late on as the Magpies defeat QPR 1-0.

For once, we can anoint a hero not named Ayoze Perez in quite some time. All the credit is deserved for such a fine run of form for Newcastle, but it has not always been in dominant and convincing fashion and today was no exception. The defense, minus Fabricio Coloccini, were able to handle a relatively weak Rangers attack but it was a bittersweet afternoon when Ryan Taylor was forced off with what appeared to be yet another knee injury. The goal was a result of a lively build up, and it was a give and go with Sammy Ameobi that freed Sissoko and created enough space for him to beat the keeper. The Magpies travel to West Ham next in an attempt to keep the streak alive in what promises to be a marquee match.

Diego Costa continued his fine scoring form in Chelsea's straight forward 2-0 home win against West Brom.

We might have expected more from both Costa and Chelsea given the number of good chances Costa had (at least three) and the advantage Chelsea had (up a man for a significant portion of the match). Regardless, Costa took a beautiful Oscar cross on his chest and drove it home for an early 1-0 lead. Eden Hazard scored from a short Cesc Fabregas corner later in the first half for the final score.

Making his first start of the season, Claudio Yacob was shown a red card for jumping in to a tackle on Diego Costa two-footed in the first half.

Remarkably, West Brom didn't concede after the red card was shown to Claudio Yacob but they were already down 2-0 when it happened and they never really sniffed the goal either. Chelsea cruised to an easy home victory up a man and two goals.

Leicester City and Sunderland ended their week 12 match in a 0-0 draw.

The two teams left frustrated as they couldn't score on each other. The two players who came on top were goalkeepers Costel Pantilimon and Kasper Schmeichel. Leicester seem to have switched positions with Burnley, as they haven't scored in over eight hours of Premier League action while Burnley are now pouring in goals out of nowhere. Despite the draw, both teams remain outside of the relegation zone, but neither is safe.

Combined with a win by Burnley this afternoon, Queens Park Rangers 1-0 loss to Newcastle United sees them dead last in the Premier League.

Rangers have just 9 points through the first dozen gameweeks and it appears clear that whatever ideas Harry Redknapp has in mind clearly are not working. He has several players good enough to play in this league but there seems to be no direction in their attacking or defending. It will be an interesting transfer window for QPR. Unless they show signs of righting the ship by the end of the festival season, it may be time to hold a fire sale. Hosting Leicester next week, it could be do or die for Harry at Loftus Road.

Danny Ings scored in the 11th and 12th minutes at the Britannia to give Burnley their second win on the trot.

Just when we all thought that the season was a lost cause, Burnley have strung together two wins in a row against teams that weren't considered terrible going into the match-up. This time it was a supposedly solid-if-not-great Stoke side playing at home that fell victim to two Danny Ings goals in the space of about a minute. Burnley are by no means safe but they are at least looking like they'll make it a relegation battle instead of being guaranteed a spot in the bottom three.
