Is water produced in anaerobic respiration?
If so, how?
I thought there's no oxidative phosphorylation so oxygen can't be reduced to form water. Then how does water form?

Plus if the water IS formed, is that the same for plants and yeasts?

Surely it cannot if there is no oxygen. The oxygen absorbed into the blood after heavy breathing then oxidises the lactic acid so that Co2 and water are produced,

What about anaerobic respiration in yeasts and plants?
What are the products?

So the anaerobic respiration of yeast is really interesting as it is basically fermentation. glucose (sugar) → ethanol (alcohol) + carbon dioxide

In plants, anaerobic respiration is the same as anaerobic respiration in animal cells. So, glucose is broken down into lactic acid and some energy is also released.
