Despite a defensive approach and the return of key man Manuel Lanzini, West Ham were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

West Ham set up in a 5-4-1 with Pablo Zabaleta and debutante Patrice Evra deployed on the flanks, while Javier Hernandez was dropped to the bench with Marko Arnautovic preferred up front. However, the changes were not enough to stunt Liverpool's attack. Arnautovic was forced a pair of acrobatic saves from Lorius Karius in the first-half, creating both chances due to a lack of service. Down 1-0 after the restart, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scored inside six minutes to triple the deficit. Michail Antonio replaced Lanzini in after 58 minutes and scored a minute later, but the Reds responded through Sadio Mane. The defeat sees West Ham slide to 13th, now just three points above the drop zone.

Huddersfield Town defeated West Brom 2-1 thanks to second-half goals from Ravij Van La Parra and Steve Mounie.

Huddersfield absorbed the pressure early on at The Hawthorns and grew in confidence throughout the opening 45 minutes. Following a goalless first-half, the Terriers took the lead when Ravji van La Parra converted a Collin Quaner cross just three minutes after the restart. With the match still in the balance, Steve Mounie latched on to an Alex Pritchard pass and doubled the lead. West Brom cut into the lead with a 64th-minute header by Craig Dawson, but the Terriers weathered a late push and ultimately held on to clinch a vital three points. With consecutive leagues wins for the first time since August, David Wagner's side now sits 14th and three points clear of the relegation zone.

Watford secured a massive three points thanks to a late Troy Deeney goal in a 1-0 win over Everton at home.

The Hornets have now secured two straight home wins against top-10 teams, following up that shock 4-1 win against Chelsea with a hard-fought 1-0 win against Everton. Watford looked the better side from the start, holding the Toffees to only one shot on target in the entire match. The Hornets finally broke through in the 79th minute when Troy Deeney, who looked set to be taken off at any moment, took a pass from Stefano Okaka and hit it past a diving Jordan Pickford with power for his first goal from open play and the winner, which moves the Hornets into 10th place on 33 points.

West Brom slide closer to relegation as they were beaten 2-1 at The Hawthorns by Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The opening half an hour was void of clear-cut chances. Jay Rodriguez and Salomon Rondon had half-chances early on, while the Baggies weathered a goalmouth scramble and James McClean volleyed over just before the break. However, the match shifted in favor of Huddersfield shortly after the interval. Ravij Van la Parra scored in the 48th and Steve Mounie in the 56th to put the visitors ahead 2-0. Dawson gave the Baggies a lifeline with a header in the 64th minute, but Alan Pardew's side were unable to salvage the match. The result leaves West Brom seven points from safety with 10 matches remaining.

Sam Allardyce has turned around much of Everton's early misfortunes, but he still can't figure out how to win away from home.

The road has not been kind to the Toffees, who have only one win in 14 away Premier League matches this season (and 22 in all competitions, and that only continued at Vicarage Road for Allardyce's club. Jordan Pickford kept Everton in the game with four saves on the afternoon, but the side could only manage one shot on goal. After conceding a goal to Troy Deeney in the 79th minute, Pickford nearly added some more heroics when, in a last-ditch effort in the final moments of the match, headed a corner goalbound into a scramble before being collected by Orestis Karnezis to seal the match in Watford's favor at 1-0.

Mohamed Salah scored for the sixth successive match and set another as Liverpool moved into second place with a 4-1 win over West Ham.

Liverpool were dominate throughout and opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark, with Emre Can heading home from a Salah corner. Salah, who was denied by the post early on, made it 2-0 in the 51st minute his 23rd goal league goal of the season after a nice pass from Oxlade-Chamberlian. Firmino extended the lead soon after, collecting Can's ball over the top and rounding Adrian for the third. The Hammers pulled one back two minutes later, but it was a mere consolation as Sadio Mane capped the affair in the 77th. The win sends Liverpool a point above Manchester United into second place, on 57 points, putting pressure on Jose Mourinho's side ahead of their clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

Bournemouth sealed an epic comeback, all in the last 10 minutes, in a 2-2 draw at home against Newcastle.

Down 2-0, it all started in the 80th minute when defender Adam Smith smashed a volley off the crossbar and down into the goal. The run was started by Joshua King's quick pass to Lewis Cook down the left wing before the midfielder found Smith outside of the area to cut the lead in half. Then, it was a mad spring to the end as Newcastle looked to hold onto its first-half lead. But in the 89th minute, Bournemouth struck gold when Nathan Ake sent a ball across the center of the box to Dan Gosling, who tapped in the effort to a wild Vitality Stadium for the point.

Manolo Gabbiadini scored from off the bench in the 90th minute to rescue a point for Southampton as they escape Turf Moor with a 1-1 draw.

Things are getting interesting around the relegation zone as the Saints plod there way to another point, having won just one league match since Week 13. The are in 15th at the moment but level on points with 18th placed Huddersfield. Their attack, which has been poor more often than not, was especially so in this one, with Guido Carillo once again providing nothing from the striker position in a starting role. One Burnley went ahead after the hour mark, the result looked settled. But two substitutes would come to the rescue. Josh Sims got a rare run out and provided a spark. He would collect the assist with a cross to Gabbiadini in the 90th minute, the latter volleying home from close range. The goal ends a 16 game drought for the Italian and perhaps he will get the nod ahead of Carillo next weekend.

Burnley looked destined to grab their first win since before Christmas but they conceded an equalizer in the 90th minute and had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The point keeps Burnley in 7th position, which underscores just how fantastic they were in the first half of the season. It was a typical Turf Moor affair and with an opponent who has had their struggles offensively, a clean sheet looked imminent as Stephen Ward made his return to left back. The first half was non-eventful as neither side could get a threat going forward. Burnley started to pressure more in the second frame and the kettle finally boiled over on 68 minutes when Jeff Hendrick, who played in a #10 role today, would get credited for an assist after his ball resulted in a scramble in front of goal and Ashley Barnes was able to beat the keeper and bury home. That appeared game over as Southampton showed little fight to equalize but the Clarets were done in by one moment of execution by the Saints. Burnley will continue their search for a win at home next weekend with a visit from Everton.

Reports suggest that Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus will be included in Sundays Carabao Cup final squad after passing fitness tests.

Speaking ahead of the clash with Arsenal, Guardiola revealed that Sterling had missed the FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Wigan after picking up a hamstring strain in Basle six days earlier. The City boss admitted that he "did not know" if the winger would recover in time, but news on Saturday broke confirming he had been cleared by the club’s medical department. Gabriel Jesus is also expected to join his teammate in the City squad at Wembley following his return to full training. "He made the third training session and every day he is better," Pep said in Fridays press conference. That just leaves Benjamin Mendy on the treatment table, although the defender is progressing well, and could be back in April. Fabian Delph is the only other absentee as he begins a three-match ban following his dismissal at the DW Stadium.
