Everton manager Roberto Martinez hailed his side after a 2-1 win at Swansea on Sunday lifted them up to fourth in the table while he also spoke about the exciting crop of young players at the club.

One of those - Ross Barkley - scored a quite brilliant free kick late on to clinch all three points and the Toffees star was joined by Phil Jagielka to give his thoughts on the match.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup felt the result was harsh and thought a point would have been fair for both sides.

Earlier in the day, Tottenham bounced back from last weekend's 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool and their surprise Capital One Cup exit at the hands of West Ham with a thrilling 3-2 away victory over Southampton.

The result boosts Tim Sherwood's chances of becoming the permanent successor to Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked last Monday, and afterwards the interim head coach admitted he wants to remain at the club for the long term.

Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor was the difference between the sides as he scored a brace and he also gave his thoughts on the victory to the Sky Sports cameras.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino was understandably disappointed with the result and pinpointed his side's second-half performance St Mary's as their downfall.

Looking back to Saturday's action, Cardiff manager Malky Mackay took charge of his team for the 3-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday - and afterwards reiterated that he won't resign despite pressure from owner Vincent Tan to do so or face the sack.

Opposite number Brendan Rodgers saw his side go top of the Premier League as a result of the victory and saved special praise for two-goal hero Luis Suarez, who took his tally to 19 this season.

Manchester City have moved above Arsenal into second thanks to a 4-2 victory at Fulham and boss Manuel Pellegrini felt the impact of his substitutes were key.

Despite defeat, Cottagers manager Rene Meulensteen was pleased with his team's positive performance after they had initially come from two goals down to draw level.

David Moyes feels things are starting to click into place as his Manchester United side beat West Ham 3-1 at Old Trafford while Hammers boss Sam Allardyce felt some of his players lacked effort.

Alan Pardew was delighted with his Newcastle side as they cruised past Crystal Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park but Eagles counterpart Tony Pulis was disappointed with the goals his side conceded as they had been the areas he felt they'd improved on recently.

At the other end of the table, Sunderland will be bottom over Christmas after drawing 0-0 at home to Norwich, and while Black Cats manager Gus Poyet thought his side should have secured the three points, opposite number Chris Hughton felt the visitors just needed a little more quality in the final third.

Hull boss Steve Bruce says the strength of West Brom's bench was the reason for their late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns, with Baggies carektaker boss Keith Downing just relieved to see their losing run come to an end.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes was impressed by their second half performance as they beat Aston Villa 2-1 at the Britannia but visiting manager Paul Lambert couldn't fault his side's display.
