As the first matches in the major European leagues loom large, clubs have been making some final changes to their squads before the big kick-off, with Roberto Soldado, Bernard and Park Jisung among the players on the move.
Moroccan international Adel Taarabt is set to work with the man who first brought him to England, Martin Jol, after the midfielder sealed a season-long loan at Fulham from Queens Park Rangers.
Queens Park Rangers fell behind to Fulham early on and battled back to make for a nervous ending at Craven Cottage, but the hosts held on for a thrilling 3-2 win despite playing a man down for the final eleven minutes.
Luis Suarez grabbed a first-half brace to help Liverpool beat Queens Park Rangers 3-0 and leave Harry Redknapp's side eight points adrift of safety in the Premier League.
Adel Taarabt has confirmed he wants to play for Morocco at next month's CAF Africa Cup of Nations, with the QPR midfielder keen to impress new coach Rachid Taoussi having been out of favour for the national team.
Manchester United maintained their six-point lead with a 3-1 win over Sunderland, while Liverpool went down by the same scoreline at home to Aston Villa, and QPR claimed a vital 2-1 win over Fulham.
