- Downing cracker piles on misery for Leicester
A stunning goal by Stewart Downing helped in-form West Ham to a 2-0 win over bottom of the table Leicester in their Premier League clash on Saturday extending the visitors' winless run to 12 games. Downing's goal -- his third in the past seven games but first at home this season -- along with Andy Carroll's third of the campaign confirmed the Hammers strong showing this term and saw them strengthen their hold on fourth place. The former England striker was helped on his way as former Hammers defender Paul Konchesky played an awful backpass almost from his own halfway line, seemingly blind to the fact Carroll was lurking. Carroll this time kept his nerve to finish off the chance placing the ball beyond Ben Hamer.

- Southampton sweep past Everton to stop rot
Southampton drew a line under a miserable run of five successive defeats with an emphatic 3-0 Premier League victory over Everton at St Mary's Stadium on Saturday. A first-half own goal from Romelu Lukaku and second-half strikes by Graziano Pelle and Maya Yoshida secured the win that brought relief to manager Ronald Koeman. Saints' disastrous recent run had seen them drop from second place to fifth, and while this win did not restore them to the Champions League places, it revived their unexpected challenge for a top-four spot. For Everton manager Roberto Martinez, however, there were few positives to be taken from a defeat that left his team in mid-table after a run of just one win in five league games.
