Two defeats in three days, at Crystal Palace and home to a Leicester second string, ensured a miserable Christmas for West Ham fans.

There was even less cheer for manager Manuel Pellegrini as the poor results on the back of an alarming slump cost him his job.

Watford fans enjoyed Christmas with another home win, seeing off relegation rivals Aston Villa with a brace of goals from Troy Deeney, justifying his position in the team of the week.

Liverpool march on relentlessly, while Manchester United's frustrating inconsistency saw them bounce back from the Watford defeat to record wins against Newcastle and at Burnley.
