Andy Carroll scored his first goal against his old club as West Ham leaped in front of Liverpool in the table thanks to a first league double over the Reds for 52 years.

Michail Antonio beat Nathaniel Clyne in the air to net the Premier League's first goal of 2016 thanks to an Enner Valencia early cross.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can was denied by the bar but Jurgen Klopp's side were off the pace throughout the match.

Carroll, who cost Liverpool a club record $70m in 2011, sealed the points after meeting Mark Noble's cross.

West Ham's second straight win lifted them to sixth in the table, Liverpool dropping to eighth.

The Reds will now turn their attention to Wednesday morning's League Cup Semi-Final clash with Stoke City at the Britannia.

Wayne Rooney's brilliant instinctive winner beat Swansea as Manchester United ended a run of eight games without a win.

The England striker flicked home Anthony Martial's cross with 13 minutes to go to settle a close contest at Old Trafford.

After a dull first half, Martial had headed United in front, before Gylfi Sigurdsson's glancing effort set nerves on edge amongst the home support.

Rooney's afternoon up to that point had been full of industry but short on inspiration.

However, United's captain improvised brilliantly to flick Martial's cross round his standing leg and into the far corner to beat Fabianski for the winner.

Manchester United move up to fifth, two points behind Tottenham, while Swansea remain just two points above regelation.

Brilliant late goals from Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero rescued Manchester City as they came from behind to beat Waford in an entertaining match.

Watford went ahead after the break when Aleksandar Kolarov headed Ben Watson's corner beyond Joe Hart, who had the situation covered, for an own goal.

With defeat looming, Toure side-foot volleyed Kolarov's corner into the near post to level.

And Aguero headed Bacary Sagna's fine cross home to secure a rare away win.

The title contenders were eight minutes from falling six points behind league leaders Arsenal, before Toure and Aguero struck for goals which could prove pivotal this season.
