West Ham continued to struggle in pre-season matches as they lost 2-0 to Malaga.

West Ham have been fairly solid defensively, especially when they have their first team on the pitch, but have struggled to score goals once again as Andy Carroll continues to be injured. To make things worse, new signing Enner Valencia will not be fit for the beginning of the season. Mauro Zarate will be relied on for goals once the season starts and could be a decent fantasy choice for adventurous fantasy managers, although the Hammers' poor pre-season form is making him a dangerous player to own.

All the damage was done in the first half as Harry Kane scored a hat trick and assisted another goal as Tottenham trampled Stoke City, 4-0.

After a forgettable end to their underwhelming showing in European play this season, Tottenham looks to have put that behind them as they carved through the Stoke defense, putting the match away in the first half. Kane scored the game's first three goals, in the 14th, 32nd and 37th minutes. He scored the first goal after a series of passes around the area set him up. The next was a left-footed strike courtesy of a Christian Eriksen corner. Five minutes later, the trick was complete when Eriksen tapped a free kick in the Englishman's path and a shot from range deflected past the keeper. Kane then put the icing on the cake, collecting an assist by unselfishly setting up Dele Alli. The bad news for Spurs is that Toby Alderweireld had to exit early with a leg injury which will be assessed in the coming days.

For the second time this season, Stoke City were thoroughly beaten by Tottenham, losing 0-4 at home back in Week 3 and 4-0 today at White Hart Lane.

The Potters are in much better shape now than when these two sides first met back in September, but you would not have thought that watching them today. A leaky defense that let them down consistently in the early weeks of the season reared its ugly head again today, conceding four times in the opening half. The scoreline could have been more lopsided were it not for a couple of quality saves by Lee Grant. The only glimmer of promise in the attack was from teenager Ramadan Sobhi, who looks capable of setting up chances for his teammates but the rest of the attack were kept in check. Stoke will lick their wounds and look to repair their defense with a nice home matchup against a lackluster Middlesbrough attack.

Mauro Zarate may have kicked his last ball of the season after suffering what appears to be a serious knee injury against former club West Ham.

Zarate was quick out of the blocks at Vicarage Road on Saturday, drawing a foul from Cheikhou Kouyate to win his side a penalty after only three minutes. The January signing from Fiorentina was starting his third successive Premier League game, and was arguably putting in his best performance, before his evening ended early due to a twisted knee. Zarate was carried from the field on a stretcher after eight-and-a-half-minutes of treatment and taken to hospital for further tests. "I saw Zarate in a lot of pain," said Walter Mazzarri. "Unfortunately, it is not a good sign. Hopefully, it is not too bad." Captain Troy Deeney wished his teammate a "speedy recovery" but admitted: "The injury doesn't look good. It was a nice touch from the West Ham fans to sing his name. Hopefully he can get an MRI as quickly as possible."

Michail Antonio was sent off for two petulant yellow cards but in-between he picked up an assist as West Ham came from a goal down to pick up a point at Vicarage Road.

Antonio's first yellow came when he went in on Valon Behrami high and late after he had dispossessed Antonio. After a few controversial non-calls went against the Hammers in the second half Antonio's frustration boiled over and he deliberately handled the ball after slipping. It wasn't all bad as Antonio hit both posts on a second half shot and the rebound came out to Andre Ayew for the equalizer.

Isaac Success came on as a substitute with the score level at one and proceeded to confound with his performance.

Success appears to have bountiful physical gifts but it didn't appear that coordination was one of them based on Saturday's evidence. Success flailed on multiple dribbles after coming on stopping Watford attacks short. He had a golden opportunity to redeem himself in stoppage time but he failed to get even a touch on a Troy Deeney headed cross that would have won the match with the final touch.

Hull City are sweating on the fitness of centre-back Harry Maguire after the defender sustained a knee injury against Burnley at the KCOM Stadium.

Marco Silva confirmed during Fridays’ press conference that Curtis Davies and Michael Dawson could be out for another month with respective hamstring and calf injuries and the Tigers can ill-afford to lose another key defender. Speaking after the hard fought 1-1 draw, Silva revealed that Maguire was "maybe 50 percent for the whole of the second half and the last 10 minutes of the first half," after appearing to twist his knee which required lengthy treatment. Silva added: "I hope it's a knock, we'll see over the next few days." However, Liverpool loanee Lazar Markovic "should be okay" for the game against Leicester City in game week 27 after a training ground injury ruled him out of todays’ match.

Middlesbrough are now winless in nine straight leagues matches after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Boro have struggled to find goals this season as they failed to find the net for the third straight match, following a goalless fixture at Everton and 1-0 defeat at Spurs. The visitors' best chance at Selhurst Park came on 22 minutes when Cristhian Stuani controlled a cross with his right foot, but was unable to pop it onto his left foot as it was cleared by Mamadou Sakho. While Boro came out better in the second half, they were unable to overcome the one goal deficit - a 34th minute strike by Patrick Van Aanholt. The defeat for the club leaves them in 17th place, even with Crystal Palace on 22 points.

Everton star forward Romelu Lukaku shook off any worries over his fitness with a goal in a 2-0 win against Sunderland.

The former Chelsea striker returned to the top of the Premier League in goals with his 17th of the season to put him level with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez. Idrissa Gueye opened the scoring in the 40th minute with his first Premier League goal for the Toffees, blasting a low pass from Seamus Coleman into the back of the net. Then, in the 80th, Lukaku doubled Everton's lead with a powerful effort, fighting off former Everton teammate Bryan Oviedo on a breakaway and finishing past Jordan Pickford for the goal, to put him level on 60 goals with Everton legend Duncan Ferguson for the club record and his eighth in the last five home matches. Everton now sit just four points back of Manchester United after extending its league unbeaten streak to nine.

Gareth McAuley scored a crucial goal again in Week 26 as West Brom beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Hawthorns.

All the scoring happened relatively early in the match with Josh King scoring a penalty in the 5th minute followed by a deflected Craig Dawson strike in the 10th and the Gareth McAuley winner in the 22nd. McAuley scored late to draw Albion even against West Brom earlier in February and he closed out the month with a winner. The goal came when the center back was first to pounce on Artur Boruc's flailing attempt at a punch from Chris Brunt's corner. The win further cements Albion's status in the 8th spot in the league as they moved eight points clear of Stoke City.
