Final whistles being blown now. Bournemouth have rescued a point against Newcastle, with Southampton doing likewise against Burnley. That could be a huge point for Saints, courtesy of Manolo Gabbiadini,

A huge goal for Southampton! Josh Sims hopeful cross is met by Guido Carrillo, who heads back across to Gabbiadini, who is just off the bench. He makes no mistake, turning and firing home to equalise.

Goal! Burnley 1-1 Southampton (Manolo Gabbiadini, 90)

Goal! Brighton 4-1 Swansea (Jurgen Locadia, 90)

Bournemouth are level! Nathan Ake is up from the back and forces an effort on goal that Dan Gosling latches onto to divert home from close range.

Goal! Bournemouth 2-2 Newcastle (Dan Gosling, 88)

Swansea have a consolation goal through Tammy Abraham, whose strike on goal needed a big deflection to help it on its way.

Goal! Brighton 3-1 Swansea (Tammy Abraham, 84)

Bournemouth have one back! And it a sumptuous strike from Adam Smith, who is fed via a cheeky backheel from Lewis Cook on the edge of the box before smashing an effort on goal that comes off the underside of the bar and into the back of the net.

Bournemouth 1-2 Newcastle United (Adam Smith, 80)

Sadio Mane is on the act at Anfield; he's just made it four for Liverpool. Robertson is again involved down the left, sending the ball across the face of goal and from six yards out, Mane gets it across the line with a slightly scruffy finish.

Goal! Liverpool 4-1 West Ham United (Sadio Mane, 75)

Brighton are cruising towards victory now, Knockaert plays a neat one-two with Gross out on the left and beats Fabianski with a terrific finish with the outside of his boot.

Goal! Brighton 3-0 Swansea (Anthony Knockaert, 73)

Goals flying in at the minute. Burnley have finally broken the deadlock at Turf Moor in their drab contest with Southampton, just about bundling the ball over the line to give his side the lead.

Brighton may have just made sure of three points at the AMEX, with Murray latching onto Izquierdo's pull back to slot home his second of the afternoon.

Goal! Brighton 2-0 Swansea (Glenn Murray, 68)

Goal! Burnley 1-0 Southampton (Ashley Barnes, 67)

West Brom have one back! Chris Brunt whips a corner kick in and Craig Dawson towers above his man to head home. 25 minutes remain at the Hawthorns.

Goal! West Brom 1-2 Huddersfield (Craig Dawson, 64)

Mohamed Salah

West Ham have one back at Anfield, but this man's 23rd goal of the season could help Liverpool into second place this evening.

A lifeline for West Ham, maybe? Moments after Roberto Firmino made it three after slotting home Can's through ball, the Hammers have pulled one back. Antonio, onto replace Lanzini, makes an instant impact, racing down the right, cutting inside and drilling an effort past Karius.

Goal! Liverpool 3-1 West Ham (Michail Antonio, 58)

Things are looking bleak for Alan Pardrew. Grzegorz Krychowiak attempts to play his way out of the back under pressure and Huddersfield swarm, with Pritchard winning the ball from him. He slides a pass through for Mounie who has beaten the offside trap to beat Foster and double his side's lead.

Goal! West Brom 0-2 Huddersfield Town (Steve Mounie, 57)

Goal! Liverpool 3-0 West Ham (Roberto Firmino, 57)

Liverpool double their lead and it is a 23rd Premier League goal for Mohamed Salah, fed inside the box by a clever pass from Oxlade-Chamberlain before firing past Adrian with a clinical finish.

Goal! Liverpool 2-0 West Ham United (Mohamed Salah, 51)

West Brom are in big trouble. Jonny Evans does well to head clear a cross but his teammates do him no favours on the follow up, failing to clear with Van La Parra on the spot to side foot home from close range.

Goal! West Brom 0-1 Huddersfield (Rajiv Van La Parra, 48)

Kouyate is booked seconds into the second-half after appearing to lead with his arm challenging for the ball with van Dijk.

And we are back underway for the second-half...

Half-time scores:

Liverpool 1-0 West Ham United
Bournemouth 0-2 Newcastle United
West Brom 0-0 Huddersfield
Brighton 1-0 Swansea
Burnley 0-0 Southampton

Half-time whistles up and down the country and now being blown.

Newcastle have a second! Dwight Gayle is the man on the spot again, capitalising on an error from Begovic to covert Ayoze Perez's cross from close range.

Goal! Bournemouth 0-2 Newcastle (Dwight Gayle, 44)

Arnautovic continues to look like West Ham's most dangerous player, trying to catch Karius out with a drive towards the top corner but the Liverpool goalkeeper follows it all the way.

Emre Can

This man's sixth goal of the season has given Liverpool the lead at Anfield. Five minutes of the first-half remain.

Moments after scoring the opener, Emre Can could have an injury here. He is gingerly trying to walk it off after appearing to hurt his knee in an awkward landing but looks to be struggling.

Liverpool should have a second! Robertson whips a wicked ball across goal to the far post where Salah is waiting, but he heads over from close range! Cresswell managed to put just enough pressure on the Egyptian to put him off.

Liverpool break the deadlock! They have their 100th goal in all competitions this season through Emre Can, who latches onto a corner kick to power home a header having outjumped Patrice Evra. Poor marking from the Hammers.

Goal! Liverpool 1-0 West Ham (Emre Can, 29)

West Ham

A strong message directed at the West Ham board from the travelling support this afternoon.

West Ham have woken up a bit at Anfield; they almost respond to that early pressure with a goal themselves. Arnautovic made the most of a hugely difficult effort, almost chipping Karius only for the Liverpool goalkeeper to just about get fingertips to it to force it onto the bar.

Van der Hoorn bundles over Glenn Murray in the Swansea box and the referee points to the spot! Murray himself takes responsibility for it and smashes it straight down the middle.

Goal! Brighton 1-0 Swansea (Glenn Murray, 18)

PENALTY - Brighton

Newcastle take the lead at Bournemouth! Matt Ritchie is freed superbly down the left by Jonjo Shelvey and looks to pick out Dwight Gayle in the middle. Asmir Begovic is out quickly to try and collect the ball ahead of the Newcastle striker but it breaks kindly to him, allowing him to backheel into an empty net.

Goal! Bournemouth 0-1 Newcastle (Dwight Gayle, 15)

Just the 81% possession for Liverpool in the opening 12 minutes here.

West Ham are pretty much pinned the their defensive third at the minute; complete dominance from the home side so far.

Decent chance for Bournemouth to take an early lead too; Dan Gosling breaks into space to get onto the end of Junior Stanislas' cross but powers his header clean over the bar.

Mohamed Salah denied by the woodwork in the opening minutes! Firmino springs clear down the inside left and cuts a clever ball back to Salah, whose first touch opens up the space for the shot. He shoots across goal, looking for the far post but it comes back off the inside of the post! Adrian might have just got a very important touch to that.

And we are off and underway in our five 3pm kick-offs.

One of the Cab Four Jonny Evans is back in the West Brom side this afternoon as captain.

Alex Pritchard and Jonathan Hogg meanwhile are back in the Huddersfield starting XI after missing the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United.

Sean Dyche meanwhile has made two changes to his side today; Sam Vokes and Charlie Taylor drop out with Ashley Westwood and Stephen Ward returning to the starting XI.

For Southampton, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg comes into replace Oriol Romeu in midfield in the only change made my Mauricio Pellegrino this afternoon.

Just one change for Brighton this afternoon; Solly March drops to the bench and Anthony Knockaert comes into the XI. January signing Jurgen Locadia must wait for his Premier League debut; he starts on the bench.

For Swansea, Alfie Mawson is fit again after recovering from a knee injury that ruled him out of the FA Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

Eddie Howe has made just one change to the Bournemouth side that lost to Huddersfield last time out with Josh King coming into replace Jordon Ibe, who drops out of the squad completely. Jermain Defoe is back among the subs having recovered from the ankle injury suffered back in December.

Newcastle United beat Manchester United last time out, so why would he change his side? It's the same XI for Rafa Benitez.

Patrice Evra, no stranger to a run-in at Anfield, makes his Premier League debut this afternoon, but his former Manchester United teammate Javier Hernandez drops to the bench. Michail Antonio is also out of the starting XI with Manuel Lanzini coming straight back into the starting XI to support Marco Arnautovic.

Winston Reid is fit again after a recent throat infection but starts on the bench this afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp makes three changes to the Liverpool side that coasted past Porto last week. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emre Can, the latter who was suspended for that victory in Portugal, return to the Reds midfield while Joel Matip slots in at the back to partner Virgil van Dijk.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Danny Ings have failed to make the match day squad due to illness.

West Ham team to face Liverpool: Adrian, Zabaleta, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Evra, Noble, Kouyate, Mario, Lanzini, Arnautovic

Subs: Hart, Byram, Reid, Rice, Antonio, Hernandez, Hugill

BREAKING: Patrice Evra makes his West Ham debut this afternoon with Manuel Lanzini returning to the starting XI.

Liverpool team to take on West Ham: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Can, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Mignolet, Lovren, Gomez, Henderson, Moreno, Lallana, Solanka

BREAKING: Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all start for Liverpool with Loris Karis again preferred in goal.

Will Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid start this afternoon? "Manu Lanzini could [return this weekend]. He has been training, so he's an important player for us, but he's not played any games, so it's one of those decisions we'll take tomorrow," said Moyes.

"I would be tempted to start him, but I'm certainly not going to give my team news out, but all I can tell you is that he's back, he's running around, he's training with us and hopefully that's him fit for the rest of the season. Winston Reid is back training and is back in the squad. We had a practice match at the training ground over a week ago and he got some minutes in that, so hopefully it did him some good."

David Moyes

Things are also looking rather bright for David Moyes and West Ham United. Andy Carroll, Pedro Obiang and Edmilson Fernandes remain long-term absentees but Manuel Lanzini, said to have been a one-time transfer target for Liverpool following the departure of Philippe Coutinho, is available again after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Winston Reid meanwhile has not featured since the FA Cup third-round draw against third-tier promotion chasers Shrewsbury Town on 7 January due to a groin strain. He was an unused substitute for the 3-1 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion earlier this month but missed the subsequent win over Watford with a throat infection but has recovered and is on contention today.

Winston Reid

Jurgen Klopp on his squad's fitness this afternoon: "Little things always; little stomach [problem] here and there, but should be OK. Nobody said today to me that they are still out, but we had one or two players with little issues. Stomach-wise, they should be OK, hopefully.

"[Nobody is a real doubt] in the moment, no."

Team news for Liverpool this afternoon? It is as almost as good as it gets for Jurgen Klopp with no injury concerns ahead of kick-off. Nathaniel Clyne, who returned to first-team training last week after missing the first-half of the season with a back injury, is still working towards full fitness and is unavailable this afternoon but everyone else is ready for selection.

After an FA Cup break last weekend, the Premier League is back in full swing today. The headline act of the weekend is still a day away with Manchester United and Chelsea kicking off on Sunday afternoon but there is plenty to keep you occupied for the coming hours with five games coming your way shortly.

Three points for Liverpool this afternoon will see them move ahead of Manchester United into second place in the table, a result that will heap even more pressure on Jose Mourinho ahead his side's test tomorrow. Jurgen Klopp has a fully fit squad to choose from that will be hoping to inflict some misery on West Ham United, who start the day four points clear of the relegation zone.

We'll have team news from that game and our other four fixtures coming your way.
