Aston Villa have been relatively quiet in the transfer market but appear close to signing former Liverpool loanee Aly Cissokho to replace Ryan Bertrand after his loan spell expired.

Aston Villa need to strengthen significantly if they hope to avoid a relegation scrape this season. The club did not play well after Christian Benteke's injury and have done little to inspire hope so far this summer. Anyone who saw Aly Cissokho last season will be hard pressed to improve their opinion of Villa's transfer activities if the Valencia man is the next big move.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were the stars again as Tottenham sealed an impressive 3-0 victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Another good away result for Spurs moves them up to fifth in the table after they dispatched Tony Pulis' West Brom side with ease. Eriksen opened the scoring after just six minutes with yet another brilliant free-kick, before Kane doubled the lead ten minutes later, with Mousa Dembele playing a key role in both goals to give Maurico Pochettino's men a comfortable lead going in at half time. The Baggies had chances with Hugo Lloris making two good saves and Craig Dawson heading against the crossbar, but Kane sealed the points with his second goal from the penalty spot - his 20th in all competitions this season. West Brom will be disappointed with their performance and they remain just three points above the drop zone.

Liverpool enjoyed a productive afternoon as they won 2-0 over West Ham United with both goals set up by Phillipe Coutinho.

It looked like a frustrating day for the Reds after one half of play, as they dominated possession, and created several chances without cashing in, with a sitter from Lazar Markovic just before the half summing up their frustration. They never kept off the front foot though, and the chances began to come good in the second frame. A cross to Raheem Sterling allowed the speedster to play a 1-2 with Coutinho and Sterling chipped in his fifth league goal of the season. Then just 12 minutes into his substitution appearance, Daniel Sturridge scored after following Coutinho up the pitch on the break. The Brazilian dribbled nimbly toward the area then picked out Sturridge who finished with confidence. Add in another clean sheet and we are looking at the best form of the season right now for Liverpool. All of their fantasy stock is ticking up.

Jermain Defoe scores a goal in his debut at the Stadium of Light as Sunderland beat Burnley 2-0.

Connor Wickham put Sunderland out to an early led with a comfortable header close to goal 20 minutes into the match and Jermain Defoe made it 2-0 15 minutes later. Burnley outshot Sunderland 13-8, but Costel Pantilimon saved all four shots on goal. Sunderland fans have got to be pleased with the recent acquisition of Defoe who was brought in to replace US men's national team striker Jozy Altidore who was struggling to get on the scoresheet. Altidore had one goal in 42 appearances for Sunderland over the last two years while Defoe has a goal (and an assist) in just two appearances since joining the Black Cats earlier this month.

Jon Walters scored a surprising hat trick to power Stoke City to a 3-1 win over QPR at the,Britannia.

At 31-years-old, Jon Walters is having a breakout season for Mark Hughes and Stoke City. Walters has generally been viewed as a utility player and a workmanlike reserve but this season he has broken out as the Potters' leading scorer. With Bojan out for the season the club will need Walters to keep up his current pace.

West Ham United came up against a well-oiled Liverpool side and were never much of a threat as they leave Anfield empty-handed in a 2-0 final.

After an easy 3-0 roasting of Hull in their last league match, the Hammers ran into a buzzsaw today. For the first twenty odd minutes, it was looking rather even between the two sides but Liverpool gradually began bossing the show, scoring twice in the second half to seal the points. It was a particularly woeful day for Carroll though as not only did he fail to find the net on a couple of opportunities, he was booked and he hobbled off for a substitute in the 63rd minute. The Hammers will be happy to enjoy their home environs again next weekend, but they will be tested again when Manchester United pay a visit. Hammer investment is trending downward.

Danny Ings was replaced in the second half in the team's 2-0 loss to Sunderland on Saturday.

Ings came off at the 61-minute mark without shaking hands with manager Sean Dyche. He wasn't having a poor game and the Clarets needed goals so the move is somewhat shocking, especially since Ings leads the team in goals. Multiple teams, including Liverpool, have reportedly been trying to lure Ings away from his current club with six months left on his contract, but Burnley insist he's not going anywhere. It's a situation worth monitoring over the next few days based on today's events.

QPR's road futility continued as Jon Walters scores a hat trick while the Rs managed only one.

Harry Redknapp's men just can't win on the road and that continued in Week 23 as they dropped a 3-1 decision to Stoke City. Niko Kranjcar scored a goal to pull the Rs within 2-1 before Jon Walters finished off his hat trick in stoppage time. The loss left QPR without a point on the road after 11 attempts.

John Carver claimed victory in his first game since being confirmed as Newcastle head coach as Hull's losing run continued.

This was just about as easy as a Premier League away game can get, as Newcastle ran out 3-0 winners over Hull at the KC Stadium. The outstanding Remy Cabella's 20-yard strike gave the Magpies the lead before Sammy Ameobi's long-range goal gave the away side a firm grip on the game just after half time. Newcastle sealed an excellent win with 12 minutes to go courtesy of a deflected finish from substitute Yoan Gouffran so move up to 11th, while Hull remain in deep trouble down in the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Lille left-back Pape Souare.

The Senegal international flew straight to London to complete the deal after his nation's early exit from the African Nations Cup this week. Souare becomes Alan Pardew's third signing of the week after the arrivals of Jordon Mutch and Shola Amoebi. Mutch has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and Ameobi has joined until the end of the campaign after ending a brief stay in Turkey.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has spent the two weeks between league matches to recover from a shoulder injury he picked up against Chelsea and has been declared fit for selection on Sunday.

Excellent news for Garry Monk and Swansea fans as the club have a tough task of finding a positive result against Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium. With Wilfried Bony long gone and Gylfi Sigurdsson serving the first of a three-match ban, it may take a tight defense to steal a road point and that feat would be next to impossible without Williams. A true soldier, he has yet to miss a minute of pitch time this season and it appears that impressive trend will continue on Sunday.

The controversial choice by Kevin Mirallas to take spot kick duties away from Leighton Baines in Everton's previous league match against West Brom and subsequent removal later in the match apparently has been settled in the locker room and Mirallas should be available for selection when the Toffees face Palace tomorrow.

One thing is for sure, you will not be seeing anyone taking penalties for the Toffees when Leighton Baines is on the pitch except for Leighton Baines. His record there is solid and everyone except Mirallas was aware of that before the incident two weekends ago. Now the word on the street is that Mirallas is angling for a move away from Goodison Park, with Spurs already being rumored as a potential new home, but Everton will probably wait to unload him in the summer. It would be in Mirallas' best interest to swallow some pride, chalk up the mistake and play hard for Roberto Martinez. The irony is that his sizzling form is what probably led to the incident to begin with. If he doesn't start tomorrow, Everton can say it is due to nothing more than a hamstring issue, but realistically it would imply that he is firmly in the doghouse, not the physio room.
