    Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

    Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was kept busy by Brighton, making a total of nine saves for a clean sheet.

    The point is enough to move Brighton up a place to 15th and Villa to eighth.

    GOAL - West Brom 1-0 Man Utd
    Mbaye Diagne

    Well, this is a turn-up for the books!

    West Brom have their second or third attack in the opening 90 seconds and they take the lead.

    Conor Gallagher lifts a great cross into the box and Mbaye Diagne gets the better of Victor Lindelof, who should do better, to steer home a header.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang thanked Arsenal for helping him through a "tough period" after his hat-trick led the Gunners to a convincing win over Leeds at Emirates Stadium.

    The 31-year-old missed two matches at the end of January with his mother in ill health.

    "Everyone was giving a lot of love to me, my mum and my family," the Arsenal skipper told Sky Sports.

    "I have to say thank you to everyone at the club, and the fans."

    Aubameyang opened the scoring in the 14th minute before doubling his side's advantage from the spot towards the end of the first half.

    Right-back Hector Bellerin grabbed a third on the stroke of half-time, with Aubameyang completing his first Premier League hat-trick with a header moments after the restart.

    But from 4-0 down Leeds grabbed two second-half goals through Pascal Struijk and substitute Helder Costa to give Arsenal a late scare.

    Josh Maja marked his first start for Fulham with a brace as the Cottagers boosted their Premier League survival hopes with a deserved victory at Everton.

    The visitors were by far the better side in the first half but were left frustrated as they missed several opportunities to score, with Bobby Decordova-Reid hitting the post and Harrison Reed driving over.

    But their dominance was rewarded early in the second half when Maja - a deadline day signing on loan from Bordeaux - slid in to turn home Ola Aina's cross from close range.

    Maja then capped a dream full debut with a second, tapping in after Decordova-Reid's shot had hit the woodwork.

    Everton were poor throughout and although Seamus Coleman clipped the outside of the post in the first half, they rarely looked like scoring.

    Joshua King did have the ball in the back of the net late on but it was ruled out for offside.

    There is still plenty of work to do for Fulham to escape the drop, with this victory cutting the deficit to safety to seven points, but it will significantly boost their hopes they they can fight their way out of trouble.

    Defeat for Everton, meanwhile, means they remain seventh on 37 points.

    Declan Rice's well-executed penalty and Issa Diop's header helped lift West Ham into fourth place as Sheffield United's Premier League survival hopes suffered a significant setback.

    Chris Basham's lunge on Jesse Lingard helped gift the Hammers, who climb above Liverpool and Chelsea, a sixth win in 10 top-flight matches.

    Rice made no mistake from the spot before Diop, who was forced off with a head injury in his previous game, doubled the lead from Aaron Cresswell's corner.

    Substitute Ryan Fredericks added a third deep into stoppage time.

    Sheffield United, 14 points from safety with 14 games left, went close to equalising at 1-0 when Lukasz Fabianski produced an outstanding save to keep out David McGoldrick's deflected header.

    West Ham had been awarded an early penalty when Craig Dawson was fouled by Enda Stevens and referee Simon Hooper pointed to the spot, but after a VAR consultation the decision was overturned.

    Timo Werner scored and assisted as he ended a 14-game goal drought to help Chelsea to victory over Newcastle in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.

    Werner's cross rebounded out to Olivier Giroud to net Chelsea's opener in the first half, after the striker replaced the injured Tammy Abraham.

    Summer signing Werner then made it 2-0 eight minutes later, scrambling in a flick-on at the back post.

    Victory sees Chelsea move back up to fourth place, ahead of West Ham.

    Relegation-threatened Fulham lost some of the momentum built up by their win at Everton but showed battling qualities to claim a point at Burnley.

    Of the three sides currently adrift at the bottom of the Premier League, the Cottagers seem the most capable of clawing their way to safety, as illustrated by their impressive win at Goodison Park on Sunday.

    But they failed to repeat that bright and incisive display at Turf Moor against a typically hard-working and competitive Clarets side, who married their industry with the game's main moments of attacking ingenuity.

    Manchester City's relentless pursuit of a third Premier League title in four seasons continued after a 3-1 victory at Everton opened up a 10-point lead at the top of the table.

    Phil Foden fired Pep Guardiola's leaders ahead with a right-foot shot which hit Everton substitute Seamus Coleman on its way past Jordan Pickford.

    Hard-working Everton were back on level terms five minutes later, Lucas Digne's powerful attempt coming back off the post and hitting Richarlison before flying over the line.

    However, a wonderful curling finish from 18 yards by Riyad Mahrez restored City's lead before Bernardo Silva beat Pickford from a similar distance in the closing stages.

    With 14 games remaining, City's lead is into double figures after a 12th successive league win.

    By beating Everton they also become the first team in English top-flight history to win their opening 10 matches in a calendar year.

    Wolves 1 Leeds 0

    Illan Meslier's unfortunate own goal following Adama Traore's sensational strike gave Wolverhampton Wanderers victory against Leeds in an entertaining Premier League encounter.

    There was little to separate the sides before Traore hit a thunderous effort from distance just after the hour and the ball hit the crossbar before rebounding off the back of Meslier's head into the Leeds goal.

    GOAL - Liverpool 0-1 Everton
    Richarlison

    What a start!!

    The visitors flew out of the traps and get their rewards.

    A poor defensive header from Ozan Kabak goes straight to Abdoulaye Doucoure, who moves it on to James Rodriguez.

    The Colombian playmaker then has the class to slip a pass through to Richarlison in on goal and the Brazilian makes now mistake with a low finish across Alisson and into the bottom corner.

    Fulham 1 Sheffield United 0

    Ademola Lookman's goal boosted Fulham's hopes of Premier League survival as they claimed a vital win over fellow strugglers Sheffield United.

    The Cottagers remain 18th but have cut a 10-point gap to Newcastle in 17th, to just three points inside a week.

    Scott Parker's side dominated for long periods but it took them until just after the hour mark to break the deadlock.

    Joachim Andersen's raking pass was superbly collected by Lookman, who profited from weak defending by Ethan Ampadu to cut inside and drill a shot through the legs of Blades goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek had earlier seen visiting defender George Baldock hook his goal-bound effort to safety after he prodded past Ramsdale.

    And while the hosts had goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to thank for a point-blank save which denied Enda Stevens an equaliser, they more than merited only their second top-flight win at Craven Cottage this term.

    GOAL - Arsenal 0-1 Man City
    Raheem Sterling

    Ah. You can't give Raheem Sterling two chances within the opening two minutes! Criminal.

    Riyad Mahrez teases the full-back on the right then lifts it into the middle. Sterling, one of the smallest men on the pitch, gets there ahead of Rob Holding.

    He nods it into the left corner. Ruthless.

    Manchester City extended their winning run to 18 games as they continued their impressive march towards the Premier League title with victory at Arsenal.

    The visitors have not dropped a point since 15 December and looked confident right from the outset, taking the lead with just two minutes on the clock as Raheem Sterling somehow managed to outjump Rob Holding to head in Riyad Mahrez's cross.

    City had four shots to Arsenal's none in the opening quarter of an hour and it looked like the Gunners were in danger of being on the end of a heavy defeat as Pep Guardiola's side poured forward at every opportunity.

    To Arsenal's credit they weathered that early storm and grew into the game as Kieran Tierney tested Ederson with a strong effort from distance, while there were glimpses of a threat on the break through the pace of Bukayo Saka.

    City failed to kick on after the break although still looked the most likely to add to their lead as Kevin de Bruyne - making his first start in over a month - lifted an effort just wide while Ilkay Gundogan saw a shot saved by Bernd Leno before Joao Cancelo clipped a lovely strike inches past the post late on.

    In the end, a second goal was not needed as City took the three points that means they remain 10 points clear at the top of the table with 13 games remaining.

    Arsenal, meanwhile, are 10th and six points off the top six.

    Leeds 3 Southampton 0

    Patrick Bamford scored his 13th goal of the season to help Leeds end a run of back-to-back defeats to extend Southampton's own winless run to a far more worrying eight matches.

    The striker struck early in the second half, timing his run to perfection to beat offside and latch on to Tyler Roberts' through-ball before firing a low shot into the far corner.

    A neat Stuart Dallas finish from the edge of the box and Raphinha's superb free-kick sealed the points.

    Olivier Giroud's spectacular overhead kick gave Chelsea an outstanding victory against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last 16 first leg in Bucharest.

    Giroud's superb moment of improvisation not only delivered the win and a vital away goal but also continued new manager Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten start at Chelsea and put them in pole position to reach the quarter-finals.

    In a tie played in Romania instead of Spain because of Covid-19 restrictions, Giroud demonstrated athleticism and technique to send an acrobatic effort beyond Atletico keeper Jan Oblak in the 68th minute. The goal was originally ruled out for offside before a video assistant referee review revealed the ball had bounced off Atletico defender Mario Hermoso.

    It was reward for Chelsea's more progressive style in the face of the usual attritional approach from Diego Simeone's Atletico. They rarely troubled Tuchel's side who comfortably kept the in-form but increasingly frustrated Luis Suarez at bay.

    Chelsea have now gone eight matches unbeaten since Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard while Giroud is emerging as their Champions League talisman after scoring all four goals in the group-phase victory against Sevilla and a last-minute winner away to Rennes.

    Tuchel was quick to praise the impact of 34-year-old World Cup winner Giroud and said: "If you see him on a daily basis, you cannot be surprised. He is totally fit, his body is in shape and his physicality is on top level.

    "He trains like a 20-year-old, like a 24-year-old. He is a guy who has a good mixture of serious and joy in training. He is always positive and it is a big factor for the group."

    Tuchel's biggest statement yet

    Tuchel's Chelsea have been efficient rather than spectacular since the German coach was appointed following Lampard's departure in January - but there will be no complaints after the most impressive result of his brief time in charge.

    Chelsea were regarded as underdogs in this last-16 tie against the La Liga leaders but apart from a couple of early scares - keeper Edouard Mendy miscontrolled early in the game before Suarez flashed the ball across the face of goal - they were in charge.

    They showed more ambition than a strangely lethargic and even more cautious than usual Atletico.

    It will increase Chelsea's confidence that they have appointed a coach who is comfortable operating at the highest levels after reaching the Champions League final with Paris St-Germain last season and impressing at Borussia Dortmund.

    And once again Giroud proved what an intelligent and talented player he is with a piece of ingenuity that settled a tight game to give Chelsea high hopes going into the second leg.

    Giroud has proved time and again he is invaluable to Chelsea's cause, demonstrating what a bargain buy he was at £18m from Arsenal in January 2018.

    It was also a good night for young England forward Callum Hudson-Odoi, who performed creditably after the debate surrounding his substitution after coming on as a substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Southampton.

    Hudson-Odoi was replaced again after 79 minutes in Bucharest but this was after a performance full of energy and hard work that will have delighted taskmaster Tuchel on a highly satisfying night for Chelsea.

    Atletico still pose a threat - but this was poor
    This was a dismal showing from an Atletico Madrid side who have been excellent domestically in heading Real Madrid, Sevilla and Barcelona.

    Atletico adopted a more conservative approach than Chelsea despite this being their 'home' leg, albeit on neutral territory, and the old streetfighter Suarez was reduced to familiar moments of gamesmanship in a bid to unsettle his opponents. It was all to no avail as the Premier League side held firm.

    It was a game that pointed to Chelsea building the platform for progress in the second leg but Atletico's resilience, ability to fight the odds and love of being the underdog still makes them a threat.

    Simeone will need to inspire a big performance from his players in the second leg but they can never be written off, as Liverpool - rampant in the Premier League at the time - painfully discovered when they were eliminated by Atletico over two legs at this stage last season, completed by a 3-2 win at Anfield after coming from 2-0 down.

    Chelsea achieved a superb result and their destiny is now in their own hands but Tuchel will not, and cannot, allow for any complacency against an Atletico team who may just revel in the task facing them in the second leg.

    FT: West Brom 1-0 Brighton - Seagulls miss two penalties & have goal disallowed

    West Brom boss Sam Allardyce, speaking to Sky Sports: "This was a huge slice of luck for us. The first penalty was an outrageous decision. Our goal gave us something to battle away at. All season we have found it difficult to score so it's a big win because we scored from a set-piece and got the clean sheet.

    "Brighton missed a few again today. If they can put that right they'll be a real force."

    On Brighton's goal that was controversially disallowed: "I'm not sure you can take a quick free-kick anymore. Have you seen a quick free-kick this season? I would say it's not something we're really allowed to do.

    "I've no idea why the second whistle went. There are so many bizarre rule changes in our rule book today. We don't really know categorically what we should or should not be doing in these situations."

    Leeds 0 Aston Villa 1

    Aston Villa moved within six points of the top four with an impressive victory over Leeds United on a difficult pitch at Elland Road.

    Anwar El Ghazi scored the only goal, brilliantly controlling Ollie Watkins' cross and firing past Islan Meslier after just five minutes.

    Dean Smith's side, still shorn of injured captain Jack Grealish, looked comfortable against Leeds who, despite winning their last two home games against Crystal Palace and Southampton, lacked penetration throughout.

    Despite the defeat, Marcelo Bielsa's United are still secure in 10th position with 35 points from their 26 games, just four points behind a rejuvenated Villa, who have games against Sheffield United, Wolves and Newcastle coming up as they look to strengthen their bid for European qualification.

    Newcastle 1 Wolves 1

    Ruben Neves earned Wolves a point at Newcastle as Steve Bruce's side missed the chance to put distance between them and the Premier League relegation zone.

    Captain Jamaal Lascelles headed the hosts in front and they looked good for their lead after a confident performance.

    But Neves, who had never scored a headed goal for Wolves before, was awarded space to stoop and nod Pedro Neto's delivery beyond Martin Dubravka.

    Dubravka, making his first Premier League appearance of the season, may have done better for Wolves' leveller but produced a superb save to deny Fabio Silva in added time.

    Newcastle were left to rue a number of missed opportunities of their own, with Miguel Almiron striking the far post after breaking the offside trap early in the first half.

    It means 18th-placed Fulham can move within one point of Newcastle if they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday, while Wolves remain 12th.

    Fulham 0 Crystal Palace 0

    Fulham missed the chance to move within a point of fellow Premier League strugglers Newcastle and Brighton after being held to a goalless draw at Crystal Palace.

    There was little to choose between the teams in a first half lacking in entertainment but the visitors came to life in the second, fashioning numerous chances to leave Selhurst Park with all three points.

    Josh Maja curled narrowly wide from the edge of the penalty area before forcing Vicente Guaita into a one-handed save with a close-range header from Ivan Cavaleiro's delivery.

    Joachim Andersen had a header blocked and Ruben Loftus-Cheek also went close, drilling a powerful effort wide of Guaita's left-hand post.

    Palace were virtually non-existent as an attacking force, registering just three attempts and failing to test Alphonse Areola in the Fulham goal.

    The draw lifts Scott Parker's Cottagers to 23 points - three behind 17th-placed Newcastle - while the Eagles are 10 points above the relegation zone in 13th.

    Leicester 1 Arsenal 3

    Leicester's increasingly forlorn-looking pursuit of Premier League leaders Manchester City suffered a big blow as Arsenal came from behind to claim an impressive victory at the King Power Stadium.

    On a miserable afternoon at the end of a dire week for the Foxes, they also had influential winger Harvey Barnes carried off on a stretcher with his leg in a brace to add to their already considerable injury problems.

    Things had started well for the hosts, who were given an early tonic for their midweek Europa League exit as Youri Tielemens was allowed to run unchecked down the right before firing a low shot into the far corner with just six minutes played.

    Arsenal refused to be adversely affected, though, and took control of the game with impressive attacking intent and far greater fluency than Leicester.

    David Luiz brought them level, finding space in the box to steer a header in from Willian's free-kick.

    Alexandre Lacazette then put them ahead after the video assistant referee (VAR) judged that Wilfred Ndidi had blocked Nicolas Pepe's shot in the box with an outstretched arm.

    It was second time lucky for the Gunners, who had earlier had a penalty awarded on the pitch but then downgraded to a free-kick after VAR decided the offending tackle on Pepe had taken place just outside the area.

    Ivory Coast forward Pepe got in on the act himself, tapping into a largely unguarded net after Willian's pass had deflected his way.

    Spurs 4 Burnley 0

    Gareth Bale scored twice and made another as Tottenham cruised to an easy Premier League win over Burnley that boosted their hopes of European qualification.

    Spurs had lost five of their previous six league matches but went ahead inside two minutes when Bale converted Son Heung-min's low cross.

    Bale's superb long pass released Harry Kane to net Tottenham's second, before Lucas Moura added a third from Sergio Reguilon's delivery.

    Son was the architect for the fourth as he ran at the Burnley defence before finding Bale, and the Wales forward curled a fine finish into the far corner to seal the emphatic win.

    The victory takes Jose Mourinho's side up to eighth. They are six points behind fourth-placed West Ham, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot, but have a game in hand on the Hammers.

    Manchester United lost further ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City after they played out a drab goalless deadlock with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

    Ole Gunnar Solkjaer's side remain second but are now 12 points adrift of City while the result left Chelsea outside the top four a point behind West Ham United.

    Manchester United - who have lost only one of their last 20 league games - thought they were about to be offered the chance to make a breakthrough in the first half, but a penalty appeal for handball against Callum Hudson-Odoi was dismissed by referee Stuart Attwell after he was instructed to consult a pitchside monitor by the video assistant referee.

    Chelsea, who remain unbeaten under new manager Thomas Tuchel, had chances but United keeper David de Gea made a fine second-half save from Hakim Ziyech while opposite number Edouard Mendy saved well from Scott McTominay and Fred was narrowly off target with a long-range effort. Mendy also punched away a late effort from Bruno Fernandes.

    In the end, however, this was another game to add to the list of meetings between the so-called top six that ended in stalemate.

    Sheff Utd 0 LIverpool 2

    Liverpool ended a run of four successive Premier League defeats and scored their 7,000th top-flight goal during a victory at Sheffield United that moves them within two points of a Champions League place.

    Blades goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale produced a string of fine saves to frustrate Liverpool in the first half as the Reds' recent lack of cutting edge in front of goal looked set to continue.

    But 20-year-old Curtis Jones showed the clinical touch his team-mates had been missing to break the hosts' resolve shortly after the interval.

    Roberto Firmino's effort then deflected off Kean Bryan and over a stranded Ramsdale as Liverpool doubled their lead with the club's 7,000th goal in England's top division.

    The Reds are only the second team to achieve that landmark, after Merseyside rivals Everton who have scored 7,108.

    The victory keeps Jurgen Klopp's side sixth in the table and they are now two points behind West Ham in fourth.

    Sheffield United were competitive throughout and Oliver McBurnie may have done better when he headed wide while unmarked from Oliver Norwood's cross.

    But the bottom-placed Blades will now have to produce an unprecedented recovery if they are to remain in the Premier League this season.

    Everton 1 Southampton 0

    Richarlison continued his good form as Everton kept their European ambitions on track with victory over out-of-form Southampton.

    The Brazilian rounded Fraser Forster to score his fifth goal in as many games as Carlo Ancelotti's side moved level on points with Liverpool and two points behind fourth-placed West Ham with a game in hand.

    It was a welcome victory for the hosts, who have struggled at Goodison Park, against a Southampton side clearly lacking in confidence and form.

    Once Richarlison took Gylfi Sigurdsson's pass in his stride to open the scoring after nine minutes, set-pieces looked the most likely scoring outlet as both sides failed to find any consistent rhythm.

    But Michael Keane's effort was ruled out for offside while Dominic Calvert-Lewin did well to head James Ward-Prowse's free-kick clear.

    The best chances for the visitors came at the end when Moussa Djenepo fired just wide of the far post after a promising move before Jordan Pickford saved from Jannik Vestergaard, leaving Danny Ings kicking a post in frustration.

    Defeat for the Saints was an eighth in nine games as they remain seven points clear of the relegation zone.

    Man City 4 Wolves 1

    Gabriel Jesus scored two late goals as Premier League leaders Manchester City beat Wolverhampton Wanderers to stretch their winning run to 21 games.

    Pep Guardiola's side were dominant from the start and deservedly took the lead when Leander Dendoncker turned Riyad Mahrez's cross into this own net.

    Aymeric Laporte had a strike ruled out for a narrow offside as the hosts sought to extend their lead while Rui Patricio superbly denied Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne.

    Wolves equalised with their first touch of the ball inside the Manchester City box as Conor Coady scored with a diving header from Joao Moutinho's free kick.

    But the hosts sealed victory with a flurry of late goals as Jesus drove home a loose ball and tapped in from close range either side of a Mahrez strike.

    Victory moved Manchester City 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League, although second-placed Manchester United have a game in hand.

    Burnley 1 Leicester 1

    Kelechi Iheanacho stepped up superbly in the absence of a number of injured team-mates to earn Champions League-chasing Leicester a potentially important draw at Burnley.

    With Harvey Barnes having joined James Maddison on the Foxes' injury list and Jamie Vardy having only just returned from his own lay-off, Iheanacho gave his side the attacking edge they required courtesy of a volleyed equaliser midway through the first half.

    City had earlier gifted the home side the lead, with Hamza Choudhury's under-hit pass near his own box allowing Matej Vydra to nip in, beat a man and then fire a shot into the roof of the net.

    There were chances to win the game for both sides, but goalkeepers Nick Pope and Kasper Schmeichel each produced a typically excellent display.

    Foxes keeper Scmeichel was particularly impressive, diving to superbly save headers from James Tarkowski and Chris Wood.

    Both teams also hit the post in the second half - Ashley Westwood for Burnley with a volleyed effort from a tight angle and Youri Tielemens for Leicester with a shot from the edge of the box.

    It is a useful point for Burnley, who extend the gap between themselves and 18th-placed Fulham to six points.

    For Leicester, the comeback and resulting confidence it may inspire is as important as the reward it yields. and they now have a six-point advantage of their own over fifth-placed Chelsea.

    Sheff Utd 1 Aston Villa 0

    Bottom club Sheffield United survived for more than 30 minutes with 10 men to claim only the fourth Premier League win of their disappointing season and dent Aston Villa's European ambitions.

    David McGoldrick fired his side ahead inside the six-yard area after being picked out by George Baldock following a lovely move that started inside the Blades' half.

    Then United defender Phil Jagielka was sent off for a foul on Anwar El Ghazi after referee Robert Jones viewed the incident on a pitchside monitor and changed the yellow card he had initially given him to a red.

    Villa's Ollie Watkins headed against the post shortly before Jagielka's red card but the visitors were unable to take advantage of the 38-year-old former Everton player's dismissal.

    The result ended a four-match losing run for Chris Wilder's spirited side who, despite victory, remain 12 points from safety in the Premier League with 11 matches to play.

    Villa could have moved three points from a Champions League place with a win but were bitterly disappointing.

    C Palace 0 Man Utd 0

    Manchester United's already slim Premier League title hopes were dealt a blow as they were held to a goalless draw in a drab encounter at Crystal Palace.

    The visitors dominated possession but struggled to create many meaningful chances, with Nemanja Matic going closest in the first half when he brought out a decent save from Vicente Guaita.

    Palace did not manage a shot on target until early in the second half when Jordan Ayew fired straight at keeper Dean Henderson after a good one-two with Christian Benteke.

    But the hosts almost pinched it right at the end when Patrick van Aanholt was put in on goal, but he was denied by Henderson.

    The draw means Manchester United are 14 points behind leaders and local rivals Manchester City before the two sides meet on Sunday.

    The point for Crystal Palace moved them on to 34 points and 11 points clear of the relegation zone as Roy Hodgson's side edge closer to securing another season of Premier League football.

    West Brom started well, Everton came back into it a bit as the half wore on, but there was precious little quality from either side.

    A point doesn't really help either of these sides, so hopefully we'll get a more open game in the second half.

    West Bromwich Albion 0 Everton 1

    Everton continued their push for European football by beating struggling West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

    Richarlison scored for the fourth Premier League game in a row, heading past home goalkeeper Sam Johnstone after a cross from substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson, who had only been on the pitch for 43 seconds.

    West Brom had been the better team in the first half but England keeper Jordan Pickford made an excellent save to keep out Mbaye Diagne's second-minute header.

    Diagne thought he had grabbed a 93rd-minute equaliser when he controlled a pass and shot into the net, but he was denied because he was narrowly offside, with the video assistant referee (VAR) confirming the on-field decision.

    This win takes Everton up from seventh to fourth - the last Champions League qualifying place - although the Toffees will drop back to fifth if there is a winner in Thursday's late game between Liverpool and Chelsea.

    West Brom are 19th, in the relegation zone and nine points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United, who they host on Sunday.

    Liverpool 0 Chelsea 1

    Liverpool suffered a fifth successive competitive home defeat for the first time in their history as Chelsea made it 10 games unbeaten under new manager Thomas Tuchel with victory at Anfield.

    Mason Mount's superb individual strike three minutes before half-time gave the visitors a deserved win and moved them into the top four, while Liverpool are now in seventh place and in a serious dogfight for the Champions League places.

    Mount scored brilliantly when he cut inside to fire a low shot past Liverpool keeper Alisson, reward for a first half dominated by the Blues, who also had a Timo Werner effort ruled out for offside.

    Liverpool, for whom a visibly angry Mohamed Salah was substituted just after the hour, barely threatened but were furious when penalty claims were rejected by the video assistant referee after Roberto Firmino's cross clearly struck N'Golo Kante's hand.

    Alisson had to save well from the lively Werner but one goal was enough to give Chelsea and Tuchel another fine victory as they move four points ahead of the Reds.

    Brighton & Hove Albion 1 Leicester City 2

    Daniel Amartey scored a late winner as Leicester City came from behind to beat Brighton and boost their bid for Champions League qualification.

    The defender stooped low to head into an empty net after Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez failed to claim Marc Albrighton's corner.

    Kelechi Iheanacho began the fightback with his second goal in as many games.

    He cancelled out Adam Lallana's first Brighton goal, which ended a 503-day drought without scoring.

    Victory lifted Leicester above Manchester United and into second place in the Premier League, while extending their unbeaten away run to 10 league games.

    Brighton remain three points above the relegation zone in 16th.

    Liverpool 0-1 Fulham

    This is the first time Liverpool have lost six successive home matches in the club's history.

    It is also the longest top-flight home losing streak by a reigning champion.

    Manchester City 0 Manchester United 2

    Manchester United brought Manchester City's sequence of 21 successive victories in all competitions to a crashing halt with an impressive derby victory at Etihad Stadium.

    Pep Guardiola's side still have what looks to be an unassailable 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League, but the manner in which United subdued a previously unstoppable City and enhanced their own top-four chances will be a huge confidence boost to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players.

    United, who have now gone 22 league away games unbeaten - including 14 wins - stunned City with a fast start and were ahead after a penalty was awarded inside the first 30 seconds when Gabriel Jesus fouled the impressive Antony Martial.

    Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot despite City keeper Ederson getting a strong hand on the ball, then United fashioned the win with a mixture of solid defence and constant menace on the break.

    Rodri almost equalised just after the break when his shot glanced off the angle of post and bar, but United effectively sealed the win - condemning City to their first loss since a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham on 21 November - when the outstanding Luke Shaw, who had earlier missed a chance to double United's lead, led a counter-attack, exchanging passes with Marcus Rashford before beating Ederson with a low shot.

    Solskjaer's team, who had not scored in their previous three games, moved back into second place, a point ahead of Leicester City in the increasingly tight fight for a place in the top four.

    Tottenham Hotspur 4 Crystal Palace 1

    Gareth Bale and Harry Kane both scored twice to inspire Tottenham to a third consecutive Premier League win at the expense of Crystal Palace.

    On-loan Real Madrid forward Bale had Kane to thank for both of his goals, opening the scoring with a tap-in from Kane's cross and heading in a superb second from another assist from the England forward.

    In between, Christian Benteke had drawn Palace level with their first effort on target with a fine header from Luka Milivojevic's cross.

    However, while the returning Wilfried Zaha hit the post for Roy Hodgson's side after being introduced as a substitute they were unable to cope with the firepower at the hosts' disposal.

    Kane, who had played the role of provider, opened his account for the evening with a curling 20-yard effort into the top left corner and then dispatched Son Heung-min's cut-back to register his 24th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

    The goal rounded off a fine Spurs display and brought up a notable landmark, with Kane and Son now having combined for more goals in a single season than any other duo in Premier League history.

    The result lifts Tottenham up to sixth in the table and they are now just two points off a top-four place, with Palace remaining in 13th.

    HALF-TIME
    Chelsea 1-0 Everton

    One of these sides have looked very much a top-four one. Chelsea lead and have barely allowed Everton a sniff.

    At 1-0, though, there remains life in the game.

    As comfortable a 2-0 win as you will see.

    Chelsea dominated from start to finish and strengthen their top-four bid at the expense of Everton's own efforts.

    Top stuff from Chelsea, looking really good under the new manager.

    West Ham United 2 Leeds United 0

    West Ham maintained their unlikely push for a place in next season's Champions League with a deserved Premier League victory over Leeds United at London Stadium.

    David Moyes' side climbed to fifth - two points behind Chelsea, who beat Everton 2-0 earlier on Monday - and have a game in hand on their London rivals.

    Jesse Lingard sparked West Ham into life when his menacing run into the penalty area drew a foul from Luke Ayling. Lingard, on loan from Manchester United, converted the rebound after his spot-kick was saved by Illan Meslier.

    Leeds had found the net twice in a blistering opening spell, but Tyler Roberts' finish was ruled out for a marginal offside against Helder Costa, and Raphinha ran the ball out of play before crossing to Patrick Bamford.

    But the visitors were two goals down before half-time when the unmarked Craig Dawson headed in Aaron Cresswell's corner.

    Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds went close to a response five minutes after the restart when Raphinha's sensational overhead attempt was tipped over by Lukasz Fabianski, while Bamford blazed over from Raphinha's cut-back and Dawson cleared off the line as Leeds chased a late lifeline.

    Pablo Fornals struck the crossbar with a dipping second-half shot, but the Hammers ultimately held firm at the back to see out the three points.

    Manchester City 5 Southampton 2

    Manchester City returned to winning ways in style with a thumping win over Southampton that moves them 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

    Riyad Mahrez and Kevin de Bruyne both scored twice as City delivered an emphatic and instant response to their defeat in Sunday's Manchester derby, which had ended a 21-game winning run.

    FULL TIME: Leeds United 0-0 Chelsea

    One of the more entertaining 0-0 draws you'll see, which is basically a given with Leeds. Big positive for them to get a rare clean sheet. Might have pressed on to score a goal too had Bamford not gone off injured towards the end of the first half.

    As for Chelsea, their goal scoring struggles continue. Front 4 of Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic and Mount with Hudson-Odoi and Werner coming off the bench as well; all that talent and no goals to show for it again. However, their defence remained characteristically solid. Still just 2 goals conceded in roughly 18 hours of football now under Tuchel.


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)

    No, they do not. A huge win for Burnley, who move seven points clear of the bottom three.

    Massive blow for Everton, whose home form costs them again.

    Sheffield United have confirmed that manager Chris Wilder has left the club after almost five years in charge.

    Wilder has left with the Blades bottom of the Premier League, with 14 points from 28 games.

    The ex-Sheffield United defender became manager of the Yorkshire club in May 2016 and took them from League One to the Premier League in that time.

    "Being manager of Sheffield United has been a special journey and one I'll never forget," said Wilder.

    Kelechi Iheanacho scored a superb hat-trick as Leicester City maintained their push for a top-four finish with a commanding Premier League victory over Sheffield United, in the Blades' first game since the departure of manager Chris Wilder.

    Having been appointed interim manager until the end of the season on Saturday, Under-23s boss Paul Heckingbottom took charge of bottom club United following Wilder's departure by "mutual consent" after almost five years in charge.

    But Leicester were far superior at King Power Stadium on Sunday, where Iheanacho continued his fine goalscoring form as the Foxes ran riot in the second half.

    Iheanacho scored for a third successive Premier League game for the first time as he met Jamie Vardy's cut-back to break the deadlock shortly before the interval.

    Ayoze Perez had come closest to an early opener with a flicked header that Aaron Ramsdale diverted onto the post, but the Spaniard got the goal his performance deserved with a fine finish into the bottom corner after 64 minutes.

    Iheanacho got his second from Vardy's excellent pass five minutes later, before the Nigeria forward's powerful strike sealed his first treble for the club.

    Vardy thought he had ended a six-game goal drought with his shot 10 minutes from time, but Blades defender Ethan Ampadu made the decisive touch.

    Leicester move into second place, above Manchester United, who face West Ham later on Sunday (19:15 GMT), while Sheffield United are 14 points adrift of safety.
