Aston Villa may very well have taken the final nail today in their relegation coffin, as they were demolished in front of their home crowd with a 0-6 loss to Liverpool.

There were many empty seats at Villa Park today and the stadium's attendance only dwindled as the match wore on. The Reds attack, revitalized with the return of Daniel Sturridge, broke through the Swiss cheese defense of the Villans with ease. Mark Bunn was the unfortunate soul who watches six balls pass him by. He had done fairly well since replacing Brad Guzan, keeping three clean sheets in their previous five matches where they had conceded only three goals in total. Just when Villa looked like they might have a bit of fight in them to challenge to stay up this season, today's result pretty much books their ticket to the Championship.

Daniel Sturridge returned to the starting XI and scored the opening goal as Liverpool would go on to trounce Aston Villa on their ground, 0-6.

Sturridge grabbed the opener in the 16th minute, heading in a cross from Philippe Coutinho. James Milner would score from a free kick nine minutes later. It stayed that way until the 58th minute, and then the Villa defense went to complete shambles, as the Reds would score four times over the next 13 minutes. Goals came courtesy of Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure. Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino each had and assist while Coutinho collected three. In all, nine of ten outfield players had a part in the six goals, something you don't see every day. No need to rush out and invest in Liverpool however, they have a blank in Week 27.

Leicester City, especially Kasper Schmeichel, played well enough to win but mistakes from Danny Simpson and Marcin Wasilewski spelled doom for the Foxes at the Emirates as Arsenal staged a late comeback to win 2-1.

The Premier League leaders had a chance to put real distance between themselves and Arsenal and going into halftime, it looked like they would do just that. Jamie Vardy earned and then scored a penalty in the 45th minute for a 1-0 lead that sucked the life out of the Emirates. Danny Simpson gave the Gunners new life when he was sent off in the 54th minute. It took 16 minutes before Theo Walcott took advantage of the mistake. To heap on additional misery, Marcin Wasilewski committed a needless foul on Nacho Monreal in the dying seconds of stoppage time to gift Arsenal one last chance on goal. Mesut Ozil put in an exceptional cross and Danny Welbeck got the slightest of touches to win the game with virtually the final play of the match.

Danny Welbeck returned to the Arsenal squad with the decisive goal deep in stoppage time to see off top-of-the-table Leicester City.

It was billed as a must-win for Arsenal if they wanted to stay in the title race and win they did, but just barely. After going down a goal in the first half to a questionable penalty, the Gunners got a break when Danny Simpson was sent off for a second yellow card early in the second half. Olivier Giroud set up Theo Walcott to level out the Jamie Vardy penalty goal. It looked like the match would end 1-1 until an ill-advised Marcin Wasilewski foul on Nacho Monreal in the fourth minute of stoppage time gave Arsenal a free kick in a dangerous spot. Danny Welbeck got the faintest of touches on Mesut Ozil's cross but it was enough for an Arsenal win on the last kick of the match.

John Terry suffered a muscular injury in Chelsea's huge win over Newcastle today and is questionable for the upcoming match against Paris Saint-Germain.

Terry suffered the injury early in the match but played through it for a period of time before signaling to be subbed off. The fact he was able to continue for several minutes makes us think this may not be a serious injury, but we won't know until later in the week. Chelsea face PSG on Tuesday and if Terry can't go, Branislav Ivanovic is likely to move to center-back once again.

Graziano Pelle started ahead of Charlie Austin today but did not score in his 74 minutes on the pitch.

Pelle and Austin are battling for the starting job at the moment and it seems like Pelle is currently in the lead. The Southampton strikers haven't been great fantasy contributors as of late, but there is potential for them as they face Bournemouth, Sunderland, and Stoke City in three of their next four matches. Both strikers are worth holding onto in season long leagues.

Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic have been relegated to bench roles as Southampton continue playing well.

Tadic and Mane were the stars for Southampton early in the season but both have dropped in form and were on the bench today. It's hard to trust either in fantasy right now, but both possess enough quality to be kept in season-long leagues. In daily leagues, a great target at the moment is James Ward-Prowse, who is on corner kick duty.

Shane Long scored once again for Southampton and earned his team a huge three points.

Southampton continue to play well and are tied for sixth place with West Ham. The Saints played another solid match, and Shane Long provided the spark needed to win it. The assist came from James Ward-Prowse, a youngster who has been playing well this season. Swansea's troubles deepen with this loss, and they are now just three points head of the relegation zone.

Newcastle will be miserable after dropping a 5-1 decision at Stamford Bridge but at least Andros Townsend got his first goal for the club.

There really weren't many positives to take away from a wretched performance. The Magpies dropped into the relegation zone after Norwich picked up a point against West Ham. The ony bright spot was Townsend who has been good over his past two matches for his new club.

Pedro has been poor value for the money this season but rebounded with a brace as Chelsea pounded Newcastle 5-1 at Stamford Bridge.

It was a mauling at the Bridge with Chelsea scoring early and often against the relegation-threatened Magpies. Diego Costa opened the scoring after five minutes followed by Pedro, Willian, Pedro again and then substitute Bertrand Traore. It's hard to make any statements about Chelsea going forward because Newcastle were just rotten.

Salomon Rondon's goal in the 14th minute was all West Brom needed to secure the three points in a 1-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park.

The win is just the momentum swing Tony Pulis' side needs after going winless in five Premier League matches from the New Year's fixtures. It was Rondon who provided the lift, poaching Jonas Olsson's goal in the 14th minute. After the Swedish international headed a cross off a corner to the back post, Rondon ran under it and gave the shot a slight touch off his chest to beat Joel Robles. Then, the Baggies locked down at the back, which featured Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson's injury return, to hold on despite Everton's 34 shots and 76 percent possession.

Matt Ritchie made good on a rare day in which he was used as a substitute, scoring his third league goal of the season, but Stoke City had already built a comfortable lead and would defeat Bournemouth, 1-3.

Thought to be one of the most nailed on attacking players at the start of the season, Ritchie was dropped to the bench in favor of Junior Stanislas who started opposite Marc Pugh on the outside of the attacking midfield. The Cherries attack offered little in the first half however, with Benik Afobe looking especially off form. Ritchie was brought in to begin the second half, but his goal came shortly after the Potters had a 0-3 advantage. Still it was a nice half-volley that got Bournemouth back into the contest and they could have closed the gap but missed on finishing some nice setups by Josh King. Now four points above the drop zone, Eddie Howe and company might start sweating a bit with wins from Norwich and Sunderland today.

It was not Everton's day at Goodison Park as the Toffees failed to score in a 1-0 loss to West Brom despite taking 34 shots on goal.

The Toffees paired that with 76 percent possession but could not find the back of the net with only six shots on target from the 34. Both Tom Cleverley and Ross Barkley hit the post on either side of halftime while Romelu Lukaku struggled to find the target throughout the match. The loss puts them back at square one after a pair of encouraging 3-0 wins gave the club a boost toward making a run up the table. Meanwhile, Bryan Oviedo continues to start over a healthy Leighton Baines after signing a new three-year contract. Tim Howard also returned to the squad but didn't come off the bench while John Stones missed out with injury.

Crystal Palace's rotten luck continues as the club has now gone winless in its last nine Premier League matches following a 2-1 home loss to Watford.

The Eagles have not won a Premier League match dating all the way back to August. However, they have scored in each of the past four after going goalless in the first five matches of their dubious streak. Emmanuel Adebayor scored his first goal in a Crystal Palace uniform and his first Premier League goal since October of 2015. The former Spurs man scored just before the end of the first half with a looping header after connecting with a cross from Connor Wickham. Without James McArthur and Jason Puncheon, Palace returned with Jordon Mutch and Mile Jedinak while Wickham immediately came back into the lineup following his suspension. But Palace will be without Pape Souare, who picked up a straight red card.

Gianelli Imbula scored his first goal for Stoke City as the Potters finally got out of a scoring drought with a convincing 1-3 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Imbula isn't exactly known as a goal-scorer but he struck for Stoke's opener today, smashing home a volley from 18 yards out in the 9th minute after a poor attempted clearance by the Cherries. They would then score twice in the space of three minutes in the second half to build a 0-3 lead. Ibrahim Afellay curled a shot home after being teed up by Jon Walters in the 52nd minute follwed by a Joselu header scored thanks to a cross from Xherdan Shaqiri. Stoke then let Bournemouth back in with a quick goal, and the Cherries looked to threaten to cut it to one for a while, but the Potters hung on to the two goal cushion. Marc Muniesa had to be subbed off just before halftime due to injury, so there is some worry at the center back position as they wait for Ryan Shawcross to return.
