Player of the day

Stefano Okaka was magnificent against Everton today and his sumptuous, Ronaldo-esque backheel finish into the Everton goal summed up his masterful performance.

Watford's new recruit said he has scored "three or four times" like this in the past in an interview with Sky Sports after the game too - so be on the lookout for more magic from him in the future.

Goal of the day

Jeff Hendrick

What a corker this one was. Burnley's Jeff Hendrick showed off his control by plucking a fast ball from the air - then whacking it into the top corner on the volley from 25 yards for good measure.

Burnley had to hold on for their win over Bournemouth despite twice having a two-goal lead so Hendrick's screamer was essential.

No wonder he was looking happy.

Surprising epic of the day

Be honest, when you saw Hull were playing Crystal Palace this weekend you probably didn't pick it out to be a classic - but by gosh it was.

In a topsy-turvy encounter Palace went from being 2-1 up to 3-2 down all before coming back to level it in the 89th minute through Frazier Campbell's header.

Hashtag of the day

Watford versus Everton wasn't filling many with excitement before kick-off - so its trending hashtag couldn't have felt more appropriate.

To be fair it wasn't a bad game in the end though, with five goals between the teams. But whatever.

Fans of the day

Burnley fans showed their class as they hosted Bournemouth a year after the stillbirth of Cherries' midfielder Harry Arter's daughter Renee.

In the eighth minute all of Turf Moor applauded to show their support for the Bournemouth number eight.

This Everton fan obviously deserves some recognition too. Because look at him.

He's called Speedo Mick and it's December - need we say more?
