Darren Bent will apparently go to the highest bidder with Fulham now rivaling Newcastle for the forward's signature.

Darren Bent would certainly be a short term upgrade for Fulham if he can rediscover his best form. It should be noted that it has been 5 seasons since he appeared more than 22 times in the Premier League and the same number of years since he scored double digit goals. At 29 it isn't outside the realm of possibility that he could rebound but unless he takes a wage cut he'd likely be an expensive risk for either club. At this point, his name is bigger than his game so one wonders if the club that wins the chase will feel like winners at the end of the season.

Jose Fonte registered a great stat line that included a clean sheet in Southampton's match this weekend.

Fonte finished the game with 18 fantasy points and his average is now at 8 points per game on the season. With Southampton's defense proving to be one of the best in the Premier League and Fonte's ability to get a lot of phantom points, he remains a good option for fantasy managers. Unlike his defensive partners Nathaniel Clyne and Ryan Bertrand, Fonte is owned by under 1% of managers and can prove to be a great differential option.

American goalkeeper Brad Guzan was exceptional this weekend in Aston Villa's 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

Guzan saved an incredible eight shots, including two late in the game after Villa were down to 10 men. The performance is yet another one that supports the view of those who think Guzan should replace Tim Howard at the next World Cup. The American will be 33 years old at that time and will have a solid chance of winning the job.

Graziano Pelle scored a tap-in in Southampton's 3-0 rout of Everton.

The Italian striker had a scoring drought earlier this month but has now scored in two of his last three and is beginning to build some momentum again. Southampton's schedule gets easier in the coming weeks so if you could grab Pelle at a reasonable price, he could be a great addition to your fantasy squad.

Swansea manager Garry Monk made seven changes for the trip to Hull City on Saturday but the Jacks still left the KC Stadium with all three points as the pressure begins to mount on Steve Bruce - his Tigers’ side are now 19th in the division.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was back following his one game suspension to replace Gerhard Tremmel while Argentine defender Frederico Fernandez returned after more than six weeks out because of a calf strain. Monk also made three enforced changes with Jefferson Montero [hamstring], Leon Britton [knee] and Gylfi Sigurdsson [foot] all carrying minor "niggles" which saw them rested as a precaution ahead of a busy Christmas fixture period. Bafetimbi Gomis was afforded only his third start of the season as Wilfried Bony warmed the bench – the French attacker was given his chance to stake his claim for a place in the eleven when their leading scorer departs for African Cup of Nations duty in January but the forward failed to light the touch paper.

Martin Skrtel's injury caused nine minutes of injury time and Liverpool used most of that time before Skrtel equalized in an action-packed match at Anfield.

Martin Skrtel's driven header late into stoppage time pull out a deserved point for Liverpool at Anfield. The Reds dominated Arsenal early in the match but couldn't find the net until the end of the first half. Philippe Coutinho scored in the 45th minute to open the scoring. Arsenal responded almost immediately through Mathieu Debuchy. Olivier Giroud looked to have the winner through Santi Cazorla in the 64th minute until Skrtel crushed an Adam Lallana corner into the back of the net.

Olivier Giroud scored his third goal in his past two matches to put Arsenal up 2-1 in the 64th minute but they couldn't hold on and had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Arsenal were up a man and a goal heading into the waning minutes of second half extra time. The Gunners answered Philippe Coutinho's first half opener with some head tennis that ended in Mathieu Debuchy scoring in first half stoppage time. In the 64th minute, Giroud was at his best deftly flicking a ball to Cazorla who reversed it to the France international who powered it through Brad Jones' legs for a 2-1 lead. Things looked up for the Gunners when Fabio Borini was sent off with a few minutes left in stoppage time but Liverpool continued to press Arsene Wenger's defensive substitutions and got a late equalizer for the final score.

Jak Alnwick got through 89 minutes and change with a clean sheet still intact in the always volatile Tyne-Wear derby, but Sunderland's Costel Pantilimon was in fine form until the final whistle as Sunderland sneaked a 0-1 win at Newcastle.

Alnwick was one of two minimum priced keepers in the Yahoo game that managers were rolling with as their backup in a week where if you own the popular Thibault Courtois as well, the chance of Alnwick's score coming into play was a clear and present danger. What a difference a 90th minute can make though as his score would have been lifted by a clean sheet and is instead squashed by the loss. To say it won't get any easier next for the young Alnwick who is learning on-the-go -- a trip to Old Trafford. You may not want him for a backup there even if your regular keeper is fit as a fiddle.

Sunderland won their fourth straight Tyne-Wear derby thanks to a goal in the 90th minute by Adam Johnson as the Black Cats spoil Newcastle's day at St. James', 0-1.

The match began as this fixture often does, with a yellow card issued within two minutes. Unlike most Tyne-Wear battles however, the game would end with eleven men per side, as the red card stayed in the ref's pocket. It also was shaping up as an aberration in that the game was goalless heading into the final minute before stoppage time. That was when substitute Will Buckley was able to pick out Johnson, who scored from six yards. The win is just the third of the season for the Black Cats, but they are getting by with drawing 10 and losing only 4.

In a match without the availability of a pure striker, Manchester City were able to find their scoring shoes in the second half, as a David Silva brace would grab the headlines in their tidy 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Going into the locker room at the half 0-0, the storyline looked to be how ineffective City were without a true striker as the versatile James Milner filled the role in a false nine. They plenty of possession and eight shots, but none were on target at the break. The dominance of possession would eventually undo the Palace defense though, as Silva opened the scoring early into the 2nd half, scoring off a deflection after being fed by Pablo Zabaleta. It was Silva again, this time firing home from a Aleksandar Kolarov cross. Yaya Toure would wrap up the 2nd half onslaught with a signature powerful surge that gave him his fourth goal in his last six league matches. Its off to West Brom on Boxing Day for the Sky Blues, who are at least temporarily level on points at the top of the table now with Chelsea.

Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was beaten by a Jonjo Shelvey long range strike that took a deflection off Ki Sung-Yueng 15 minutes into the game.

Both teams squandered chances later on in the match, with Hull hitting the crossbar once and Swans hitting the woodwork twice. Ki Sung-Yueng has three goals on the season and two goals in his last four games. Swansea is up to eighth in the league and Hull - winless in 10 games - is second from the bottom.

Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll lift West Ham to its fourth win in five matches, beating Leicester 2-0 on Saturday.

Carroll scored midway through the first half and Downing added to the lead shortly after the second half began with an unstoppable effort placed into the far corner. Downing has a goal or an assist in the last four games and Carroll has three goals in his last three. West Ham sits in fourth place, one point behind Manchester United, while Leicester remains bottom of the table with 10 points.
