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.

Josh King returned to Bournemouth's starting lineup but it was Callum Wilson who stole the show as 10 man Bournemouth crushed Huddersfield.

Huddersfield dominated the early exchanges but the Cherries managed to grab the lead after 26 minutes through Wilson. His goal was Bournemouth's first home goal since September 15. Andrew Surman's low free-kick made its way to Wilson who fired home whilst all the Huddersfield defenders were looking for an offside flag to make it 2-0. The Terriers' defence collapsed and Bournemouth only increased that lead after Simon Francis saw red for a second bookable offence. Harry Arter struck from outside the box to make it three and then there was joy for Wilson as he marked his escape from injury hell by completing his hat-trick late on. A great day for Bournemouth and a huge relief for Eddie Howe.

Everton came from behind once again to steal a point from Selhurst Park in a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

Oumar Niasse has proven to be one of the club's shining stars this season, and now leading scorer on five goals. The Senegal international celebrated a memorable week that saw him qualify for the World Cup and produce two goals for the Toffees when they needed him most, starting in the fifth minute when he drew a penalty, however dubious, that ended with a Leighton Baines conversion. Then, in stoppage time of the first half, Niasse took a pass from Gylfi Sigurdsson and tucked it past Julian Speroni for the final goal of the match.

Burnley continue to exceed everyone's expectations with another comprehensive win, their third straight, putting Swansea City away 2-0.

With each passing week, the Clarets must be attracting more and more neutral fans around the globe as Sean Dyche is getting the best out of all of his players. Today, he was faced with an injury blow at striker, with both Chris Wood and Sam Vokes out of the squad. In stepped Ashley Barnes for a rare start, and he would go on to score the second of Burnley's two first-half goals. The first came just before the half-hour mark, when former Swan Jack Cork nodded home a Robbie Brady cross. About ten minutes later, Barnes doubled the lead, collecting a pass from Jeff Hendrick and finding the net from the edge of the box. The usually stout defense were hardly tested, but it was another mistake-free performance nonetheless.

Crystal Palace took two leads and saw it disappear in the first half alone in a 2-2 draw with Everton.

Palace jumped on the board early with the second-fastest goal in Premier League history after James McArthur pounced on a saved shot by Ruben Lofus-Cheek at the back post just 51 seconds into the match. After Scott Dann gave away a dubious penalty in the fifth minute, Wilfried Zaha gave the Eagles another lead with a goal in the 35th minute for his third goal in the last five league games. In the 35th minute, Joel Ward zipped across a pass that found Zaha for a rare, composed finish. But the lead was gone on the brink of half-time as Palace stayed bottom with only a point to show from Saturday.
