Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Uruguay international Lucas Torreira on a permanent contract.

Is it really that easy? After years of frustration that the club couldn't or wouldn't come up with strong options at goalkeeper, center back, and holding midfielder Arsenal's new leadership team have done just that plus veteran depth at right back with approximately a month still to go in the transfer window. Torreira's performances in Serie A and at the World Cup have been lauded and, if he lives up to his billing, he will increase the value of new teammates like Bernd Leno and Sokratis as well as returning players like Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac as the team holds down a tighter defense overall.

Lucas Digne scored his first Everton goal in second half stoppage time to draw Everton level with Watford to close out Week 16.

It looked like Ben Foster's save of Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty was going to prove to be the difference between Macro Silva's old side and his new one. One of Silva's summer signings came to the rescue though as former Barcelona man Lucas Digne scored on a set piece deep into stoppage time. The goal drew Everton even and that final scoreline flattered Everton slightly after they had been outplayed by the visitors for much of the match.

Abdoulaye Doucoure scored again but Watford couldn't quite close out a win against former manager Marco Silva and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

After going his first fourteen Premier League matches of the season without scoring, it has been two in two matches for the Watford central midfielder. Last season was absent significant goal or goalless streaks as Doucoure took a massive leap forward from afterthought to certain starter. His slow start to the season likely had fantasy managers bailing out but his revival should have him in consideration as a bench player with only Chelsea on Boxing Day presenting daunting opposition for Javi Gracia's side over the next month and a half.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that winger Sadio Mane will be available to face Napoli on Tuesday.

The Reds are in a must-win scenario tomorrow at Anfield and will need to win 1-0 or by two goals to advance to the Champions League knockout stages. But after playing 20 minutes off the bench this weekend against Bournemouth, Sadio Mane looks to be back from a foot injury that limited him in the past week, although Klopp said that he will likely have to play through pain: "Sadio can deal with the pain obviously – it looked like that in Bournemouth, so that’s cool. It’s good enough that we can consider him at least. We have two sessions still to come – we’ll train tomorrow morning as well. That’s very important. We have the meeting to do. In the squad there is nothing really serious after the game, that’s good."

Dejan Lovren has a chance to return to boost the Liverpool defense on Tuesday in the final group stage match.

The center-half has missed all three Premier League matches last week due to a concussion but it pushing for a return to action this week, starting with a massive must-win Champions League game on Tuesday against Napoli. With Joe Gomez also out, Joel Matip has filled in along the backline but Lovren's return would surely be welcomed in a week where manager Jurgen Klopp must prepare for Napoli and Manchester United. "We will see how Dejan is doing," Klopp said. "Yesterday he was out on the pitch and looked quite well. Can he be part of training today or not? We will see that. Squad-wise, [there is] no bad news at least."

Tottenham may have to rely on Kyle Walker-Peters to face Barcelona in their Champions League decider due to injuries to their top two right-backs.

That's because Serge Aurier had to leave the club's win over Leicester City on Saturday with a groin injury and he has already been ruled out for the midweek trip to Spain, where the club will need some points with Inter Milan tied with Spurs and set to face last-place PSV Eindhoven. Said manager Mauricio Pochettino: "Serge is going to have a scan today, he’s going to be out. We think it’s a small problem. We assessed him yesterday but we need to confirm that with the scan. We hope it’s not going to be a big issue and that he’s back as soon as possible." Meanwhile Kieran Trippier remains out with a groin injury as he undergoes an individual training program. But at least the club will have Erik Lamela back from injury to face the Spanish champions.

Wolverhampton Wanderers had the benefit of a man advantage for a large portion of the match, but it took four minutes into second half stoppage time to find a winner, as they defeated Newcastle United, 1-2.

It was a very entertaining affair from start to finish, as Wolves came in this evening with a couple of key starters getting rested in Raul Jimenez and Joao Moutinho. After both sides stated early intent of threatening to score, Wolves went ahead in the 17th minute as Diogo Jota scored for the second time in as many games, as he chested a Heider Costa cross before beating the helpless keeper. Newcastle would get a deserved equalizer but a red card shown to DeAndre Yedlin early in the second half gave Wolves license to control the match and, after much patience, scored at the death when Jota sprinted into a shooting position, but his blocked attempt was followed up by a Matt Doherty header.

Newcastle United were down to ten men early in the second half and saw their attempt to salvage a result come up short in the dying moments of the match as they suffer a bitter 1-2 loss to Wolves.

Both sides were up for this one and the Newcastle supporters fed into a very lively, competitive match. The two sides would trade blows for the entire first half. Wolves went ahead first, on what had to be considered rather poor defending on the part of Jamal Lascelles but the Magpies were not phased, as they were able to level only six minutes later. Rondon had a free kick smash off the bar and the attempted clearance came back to him, so he then crossed it into the box where Ayoze Perez executed a smart header. The second half was a different story. Eight minutes after the restart, DeAndre Yedlin would fumble the ball deep in his own end, forcing a tackle on Diogo Jota that saw an immediate straight red card. Newcastle were under the gun from then on, but kept Wolves contained while getting a couple of cracks with a man down. A draw looked in the cards but Wolves would break hearts late, as Martin Dubravka's fine shift could not withstand the opponent's final charge.

Heung-Min Son scored the opener and assisted on the second as Spurs beat Leicester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium to close out Saturday's Premier League action.

Son followed a similar arc last season. He was nearly a non-factor to for the first three months of the season but, from there, caught fire and was one of the most productive midfielders in the Prem from mid-November on. His rise this season has started over the past couple of weeks and if it continues then managers should look to bring him or trade for him before his value goes too high.

With Jamie Vardy out injured the Foxes struggled to keep up with visiting Spurs who beat Leicester City 2-0.

The Foxes had more shots and more shots on target than their visitors but Spurs scored on both of their shots on target and cruised to a victory to put them back into 3rd place. With Jamie Vardy out, the Foxes were without their biggest goal threat and they missed their talisman badly. If Vardy can't shake the groin injury that has had him in and out of the line-up then look for results to suffer until he is back.

City came into this one undefeated and Chelsea made adjustments to secure the 2-0 win. Goals from N’golo Kante and David Luiz gave the Blues their final advantage

Both managers made bold decisions dropping their strikers in favor of false nines in this match but it was the midfields that made a difference. N’Golo Kante, who’s been playing in an unfamiliar position as a box to box midfielder looked like a natural netting his second goal of the season. Setup by Eden Hazard, it was just the dagger that Chelsea needed before half, after allowing Manchester City to control 62 percent of possession. Heading into the second half, City turned up the pressure after taking off Leroy Sane for Gabriel Jesus but Chelsea held their shape well. Kovacic had to be taken off for Ross Barkley after picking up a knock in the 63rd minute. It’s unknown if he’ll miss time but the injury didn’t look serious. In the 78th minute, after winning a corner, Eden Hazard picked up his second assist of the game after finding David Luiz’s head in the box. It put the game at 2-0 and ensured that Liverpool will end the weekend in first place in the Premier League.

Burnley secured a much-needed three points in a 1-0 win over Brighton during a rain-soaked afternoon at the Turf Moor.

Games in the area were being cancelled due to the rain, but Burnley powered through thanks to a James Tarkowski goal in the 39th-minute that turned out to be a match-winner. A scramble in the box ensued after goalkeeper Mat Ryan punched away a cross into the penalty area, but Jack Cork found Tarkowski in space away from goal and the defender silenced his effort into the back of the net. Not only did the Clarets secure a clean sheet, but Sean Dyche can breathe a massive sigh of relief after leaving the bottom three.
