Saturday's EPL Roundup: Liverpool Win Big, Stoke Stop Leicester As Newcastle Lose

Here's the roundup of today's English Premier League fixtures..

West Ham United 1 - 4 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah scored two more goals as Liverpool hammered West Ham United 4-1 at the London Stadium on Saturday in what will surely lead to more calls for Irons coach Slaven Bilic‘s job.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Matip also scored for the Reds, while Manuel Lanzini scored West Ham’s only marker.

Liverpool finishes the day in sixth on 19 points.

West Ham could finish the weekend in the drop zone if Everton beats Watford on Sunday
Stoke City 2 - 2 Leicester City

Stoke City fought back twice to draw 2-2 with Leicester City at the bet365 Stadium.

The Foxes created the better chances throughout and took the lead through Vicente Iborra in the first half.

Before the break Xherdan Shaqiri made it 1-1 but Leicester went 2-1 up early in the second half with Riyad Mahrez scoring a fine solo goal.

Late on Peter Crouch jumped off the bench to head home an equalizer as the Potters and Foxes played out a third 2-2 draw in their last four meetings at the bet365 Stadium.

With the point Stoke move on to 12 points, while Leicester have 13 with Claude Puel unbeaten in two games as Foxes boss.

Huddersfield Town 1 - 0 West Bromwich Albion

Huddersfield Town secured back-to-back home wins in top-flight for the first time since 1971 as David Wagner‘s men battled to a 1-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion.

Rajiv Van La Parra’s goal proved to be the difference for a Terriers side who had Christopher Schindler sent off early in the second half but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl came up big late on to secure all three points.

With the win Huddersfield move on to 15 points for the season and into the top 10, while West Brom are just two points off the relegation zone.

Newcastle United 0 - 1 AFC Bournemouth

Steve Cook‘s stoppage time goal gave Bournemouth a deserved win over Newcastle United at St. James Park.

Bournemouth’s win pushed Swansea into the drop zone, and lifts the Cherries out on 10 points. The Magpies drop stay 11.

Southampton 0 - 1 Burnley

 Burnley beat Southampton 1-0 at St Mary’s Stadium with Sean Dyche‘s team continuing their fine form away from home this season.

Substitute Sam Vokes scored the game-winner late on with Burnley’s only effort on target as Saints once again dominated possession but failed to score at home.

With the win Burnley move into seventh place in the table, while Southampton drop into thirteenth.

Swansea City 0 - 1 Brighton & Hove Albion

Murray led Brighton and Hove Albion past Swansea City for a 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium.

The win boosts Chris Hughton‘s men into eighth with 15 points, while Swans slip to 18th.
