Simon Mignolet joins Liverpool from Sunderland after passing a medical and signing a long-term contract.

Mignolet is only 25 and already one of the best keepers in the Premier League. This is a great long-term investment by the club getting younger and better at a key position. The next domino to fall will be Pepe Reina's inevitable move elsewhere.

Tony Pulis has been sacked as the manager of West Bromwich Albion effective immediately after a run of poor results to end last season and start this campaign.

Funny how expectations change. West Brom were the poster club when it came to the "yo-yo" approach to promotion and safety. Albion purposely invested frugally over a couple of one-year trips to the Premier League putting the finances and structure in place to eventually settle in in the top flight. That goal achieved, the notion of playing dull football and just getting by was no longer enough and so survival master Tony Pulis was sacked as the season started looking like a fight for survival rather than a push forward to mid-table. It was a reasonable decision given that Pulis has been spending on players who should have the club moving toward mid-table safety. Gary Megson will replace Pulis on an interim basis until a full-time replacement is found.

Danny Rose was said to be fuming following his omission from the squad which travelled to the Emirates on Saturday.

Fresh from his involvement with England during the international break, many expected Rose to reclaim the left-back spot, despite the early season form of Ben Davies. However, the recently returned 27-year-old was nowhere to be seen, and it was later confirmed by Mauricio Pochettino, amid growing speculation of a bust-up, that he made a "technical decision" on leaving Rose out. "Remember, we played without Danny for ten months, so we need to build up his fitness and for this game we decided it would be better for him to train rather than be on the bench." But, despite his reasoning, there are many that believe Rose could be set to leave with Manchester United monitoring the situation closely. Mourinho is a long-term admirer and any deal could be sweetened by the inclusion of forgotten full-back Luke Shaw who would be keen to work under the Argentine again.

Erik Lamela has made his long-awaited return from injury after more than a year on the sidelines.

The Argentine ended 13 months of misery when he was named in the starting XI for the U23s who lost a five-goal thriller to rivals Chelsea. "The Argentine, not seen in a Spurs shirt since [the] League Cup in October last year, took another step on his road to recovery following hip problems with a good shift…." the official post-match report read. His recuperation, which has been punctuated by setbacks, finally looks to be heading the right direction with Lamela pushing for a first-team return ahead of a busy fixture programme. While his prowess in the attacking third is well-publicised [ranked Top Three for key passes and successful dribbles], it’s Lamela’s tenacious work rate which often goes unnoticed. During 2015/16 only Mousa Dembele completed more tackles on average across 90 minutes and in his 9 matches last season – Tottenham were unbeaten conceding fewer goals [0.46] than they did across the remainder of the campaign [0.76].

David Unsworth moved quickly to provide an update on Morgan Schneiderlin after the midfielder was replaced at half-time versus Crystal Palace.

The caretaker boss was forced to defend Schneiderlin prior to the trip to Selhurst Park following growing media speculation which questioned his commitment, and that of teammate Kevin Mirallas, who were both omitted from the squad which faced Watford in game week 11. "There is no story. I know they’re both fully committed. If they’re not in the team or squad, would they be disappointed? Absolutely - and you would want that. There’s nothing in it, honestly. I can assure all the Everton fans that both players are fully committed to this great Club." However, following a lacklustre forty-five minutes against the leagues bottom side, Schneiderlin failed to emerge for the second half, although Unsworth insists his withdrawal was injury-related. "We were forced to bring on Tom Davies. Morgan had an injection before the game on his toe and was struggling."

Missed chances, poor defending and an injury to a key player summed up a forgettable debut for David Moyes as West Ham United fell to Watford, 0-2.

Moyes' return to the Premier League went wrong in every possible way. They gave up an early goal, putting themselves in a pressurized situation which they could not escape from. They had two chances to level the match just before halftime, but shots by Cheikhou Kouyate and Marko Arnautovic were stopped by the Watford keeper. The defense then allowed the Hornets an easy second goal just after the hour mark. Moments later, Arnautovic landed awkwardly, appearing to have injured his wrist, and immediately exited the game. With a quarter hour left, Manuel Lanzini nearly pulled one back, but his shot was cleared off the line. Moyes will go back to the drawing board as West Ham stay home this Friday to host Leicester.

Will Hughes scored his first Premier League goal and added an assist as Watford snap a three game losing streak with a 0-2 win over West Ham United.

Watford were able to spoil David Moyes' debut by taking advantage of an early goal and dictating the flow from there. In the eleventh minute, Andre Gray scuffed a shot that landed in the path of Hughes, who scored with his first ever shot attempt in the top flight. Late on in the first half, Heurelho Gomes came up with a couple of big saves to preserve the lead. The Hornets then doubled their lead a bit after the hour mark, when Hughes played provider to Richarlison, who scored his fifth goal of the season and has now scored or assisted in six of Watford's last seven matches. Hughes may have cemented an extended run in the side with today's performance.

Paul Pogba returned from injury and put in a man-of-the-match performance as Manchester United came from behind to beat Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford.

Victor Lindelof slipped and allowed Dwight Gayle to fire Newcastle to a surprise lead in the 14 minute, but that was the lone negative for Jose Mourinho's side on Saturday. Pogba, back from nine weeks on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury, was excellent during his 70 minutes on the pitch and Zlatan Ibrahimovic came of the bench for the final 14 minutes after seven months out. Pogba assisted Anthony Martial to level the match eight minutes from the break before Chris Smalling headed them ahead on the stroke of half-time. United then showed their attacking firepower after the restart, as Pogba finished off a fine team move in the 54th before Romelu Lukaku scored his first goal since late September. The result sees United remain second, one point above Chelsea, but eight points behind leaders Manchester City.

Tony Pulis rumors will gain even more steam after Chelsea came to the Hawthorns and thrashed West Brom 4-0 with Albion barely putting up a fight.

The rumor mill surrounding the track-suited manager was already swirling after a string of poor results. This is bound to increase not only because Albion lost to Chelsea but based on the manner in which they lost. This wasn't the tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners Tony Pulis side that we have grown accustomed to watching over the years but one that seemed content to be swept aside by superior talent. If they had lost a hard-fought 1-0 decision where they defended hard and gave everything for the cause then Pulis could be excused based on the talent gap. Instead, Albion turned in another performance that makes it look like Pulis has either tired of his uncompromising style or lost this group of players and their desire to put forth the effort his style demands. Either way, it will be a noisy week in the gossip pages as Pulis' fate is decided.

Swansea City put in a flat performance that was magnified by a back injury that required Tammy Abraham to exit early in a 2-0 loss to Burnley.

Paul Clement's side has really hit the skids, suffering their fourth loss on the trot this afternoon, as they conceded two first half goals to the home side while offering virtually no threat in the opposite direction. The only stretch of the match in which they did look positive going forward was about a twenty minute span in the second half, with their best chance to cut the deficit in half missed by Abraham. Late on, the striker went to ground for the second and final time of the game, requiring a stretcher. It appears to be a back injury and we should get an update on his status before the end of the weekend.

Mo Salah accelerated his emergence as a cult figure in fantasy football with a brace as Liverpool eased to a 3-0 win over Southampton.

The Egyptian got on the scoresheet first after the Dusan Tadic scuppered a chance to break on the counter and lost possession near his own area. Salah curled in with his left foot from 20 yards. The Reds grew into the game from there and Coutinho played Salah in for his second with a perfectly weighted through-ball. The Brazilian got one of his own with a follow-up after Firmino saw one of his shots spilt forward by Forster to round out the scoring for the day. Southampton failed to register a single shot on target and the pressure continues to mount on manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

Leicester City was a shell of itself, like most sides against Manchester City, in a 2-0 loss at home.

The game didn't have the lopsided scoreline featured in most Manchester City games of late, but it was one of the most dominant performances put together by any team this season. The Foxes couldn't do much but watch as Manchester City controlled the match; literally, the Foxes couldn't do much: two shots, none falling on target and 25 percent possession. Kelechi Iheanacho wasn't even given a starting chance to face his former side for the first time, coming on in the 67th minute when the match was already won.
