    Arsenal came from behind to secure a fully deserved north London derby win and inflict damage on Tottenham's hopes of a place in the Premier League's top four.

    The Gunners were vastly superior until a Spurs rally in the closing stages but fell behind to a piece of genius from Erik Lamela - on for the injured Son Heung-min - when he curved a magnificent rabona finish beyond Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno in the 33rd minute.

    Arsenal, who had seen Emile Smith Rowe's long-range shot smack against the bar, then suffered more ill-luck when Cedric Soares hit the post, but were level on the stroke of half-time when Martin Odegaard's effort was deflected out of the reach of Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.

    Mikel Arteta's side continued to dominate a largely dreadful Spurs and took the lead from the penalty spot after 64 minutes when Alexandre Lacazette missed his kick but was fouled by Davinson Sanchez.

    Lacazette recovered to send Lloris the wrong way for his 12th goal of the season.

    Spurs' day got worse when Lamela was sent off for a second yellow card, shown by referee Michael Oliver for a hand-off into the face of Kieran Tierney with 14 minutes left.

    But they almost snatched a point in the closing moments when Harry Kane's free-kick bounced off the post, with Arsenal defender Gabriel heading Sanchez's goal-bound shot off the line from the rebound.

    Arsenal, who dropped captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the game for disciplinary reasons, stay in 10th place but Spurs are now six points adrift of Chelsea in fourth, although with a game in hand.

    FT: Man Utd 1-0 West Ham

    Mason Greenwood gets a big clap on the back from his manager. He's been bright tonight.

    Harry Maguire also very solid.

    Wolves 0-1 Liverpool

    The full-time whistle goes. Liverpool move up to sixth thanks to Diogo Jota's goal against his old club.

    But the major talking point is that serious looking head injury to Wolves keeper Rui Patricio.

    We needed this win! Hopefully we can go on a winning run now.

    Best wishes to Patricio, looked very bad.

    Patrick Bamford scored one and set up the other goal as Leeds beat Fulham in a frantic game at Craven Cottage.

    The hosts missed the chance to move out of the Premier League relegation zone with a third defeat in four games.

    Leeds had two goals disallowed in the first half - first when Luke Ayling's header was ruled out by the video assistant referee and then when Raphinha was well offside before slotting home.

    They led when Bamford, who missed out on selection for the England squad on Thursday, smashed home at the near post from Jack Harrison's cross.

    Fulham were level when defender Joachim Andersen volleyed in from Ademola Lookman's corner, his first goal in English football.

    But Leeds scored the winner just before the hour mark, as Bamford fed Raphinha, who beat two defenders before poking home.

    The result takes Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds up to 11th in the table on 39 points.

    Brighton eased their relegation concerns at the expense of fellow strugglers Newcastle as Graham Potter's side moved six points clear of the Premier League's bottom three with a deserved victory at Amex Stadium.

    Leandro Trossard's curled finish into the bottom corner in first-half stoppage-time was the least Brighton's early dominance deserved, and Danny Welbeck's sublime strike from outside the box doubled the advantage six minutes after the restart.

    Neal Maupay then put the result beyond any doubt as he met Pascal Gross' cross for his first goal in 10 league games midway through the second half.

    Newcastle were second best throughout and rarely threatened a comeback - they had only one shot on target - though Ryan Fraser was inches away from an equaliser when he fired against the post shortly after the break.

    While 18th-placed Fulham missed the chance to move above Steve Bruce's side with a 2-1 defeat by Leeds on Friday, Newcastle remain in serious trouble with just two points separating them from the relegation places - albeit with a game in hand on the Cottagers.

    Tottenham responded to their shock Europa League exit in midweek with a hard-fought Premier League victory over Aston Villa that keeps Jose Mourinho's side in the hunt for a top-four finish.

    They were labelled a "disgrace" by captain Hugo Lloris after the 3-0, last-16 second-leg defeat by Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday that saw Spurs throw away a 2-0 aggregate advantage and left their hopes of qualification for next season's Champions League pinned on their league placing.

    But Carlos Vinicius' opener and Harry Kane's second-half spot-kick ensured Tottenham made the necessary winning response to climb to sixth in the standings, three points behind Chelsea in fourth.

    An interchange of slick passes between Lucas Moura and Kane following a poor clearance by Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez allowed Vinicius to put Spurs ahead from close range after 30 minutes.

    And Kane avoided a potentially nervous finish to the game for his side, sending Martinez the wrong way with his penalty after being fouled by Matty Cash.

    In the continued absence of skipper Jack Grealish, Villa failed to register a shot until Trezeguet's blocked attempt after 58 minutes.

    The hosts were much improved after the interval, although substitute Anwar el Ghazi's powerful drive into the side-netting was as close as they came.

    Defeat leaves Dean Smith's side 10th, seven points behind Spurs in the Europa League positions, although they have one game in hand.

    Leeds United scored early in each half to beat Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United and move into the top half of the Premier League.

    Leeds were firmly on top at a sunny Elland Road and took an early lead as Raphinha squared for Jack Harrison to tap in his seventh goal of the season.

    The hosts were made to rue their missed chances in first-half stoppage time as Ben Osborn forced the ball over the line after Oli McBurnie's shot deflected into his path.

    But Leeds were back in front inside four minutes of the second half, Phil Jagielka turning Harrison's low cross into his own net.

    Portugal forward Diogo Jota came off the bench to score twice as Liverpool claimed a third successive away win with a comfortable victory against lacklustre Arsenal.

    Liverpool hemmed the Gunners into their own half for much of the game but had to wait until after the hour mark to break the deadlock.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped in a deep cross for Jota to power a header past Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno just three minutes after he had replaced left-back Andy Robertson.

    Four minutes later, Mohamed Salah got in behind Gabriel before rolling the ball between Leno's legs.

    Jota, who scored three times in two games during the international break, made sure of victory by sweeping in his 14th club goal of the season.

    Pep Guardiola says he will "never forget this season" as runaway leaders Manchester City closed in on the Premier League title with victory at third-placed Leicester.

    Second-half goals by Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus left City requiring 11 points from seven matches to seal a third league crown in four seasons.

    "I love the Premier League more than any other competition. We are close, very close," added Guardiola after his team moved 17 points clear at the top.

    "The champions are Liverpool, they have the crown - but we are close to taking it."

    Guardiola said City's efforts were "incredible" given most matches this season have been played without spectators because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    "In lockdown without spectators - every game we were there," he added. "I will never forget this season."

    In their first match since announcing club-record scorer Sergio Aguero is to leave at the end of the season, Guardiola's free-scoring side were frustrated before Benjamin Mendy broke the deadlock.

    Fernandinho had a goal disallowed, Kevin de Bruyne's free-kick hit the bar and Riyad Mahrez was denied against his former club by Kasper Schmeichel's save.

    However, France defender Mendy produced a lovely curling finish after stepping inside a challenge from Marc Albrighton before Gabriel Jesus sealed the points for the visitors from close range.

    Leicester thought they had taken the lead on the stroke of half-time through Jamie Vardy but his celebrations were cut short by an offside flag.

    Newcastle earned a vital point in their fight for Premier League survival thanks to a late equaliser against Tottenham from on-loan Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock at St James' Park.

    The 21-year-old reacted quickest, after Miguel Almiron's effort was cleared off the line, to fire into the roof of the net and deny Spurs a place in the top four for the first time since 2 January.

    In an entertaining game Newcastle took the lead when Joelinton slotted home a lovely threaded pass from Sean Longstaff after Spurs were guilty of overplaying at the back.

    Jose Mourinho's side responded within 90 seconds as the hosts, and in particular Emil Krafth, failed to clear in the area, and an alert Kane prodded home for his 18th goal of the campaign.

    The visitors were leading four minutes later when Kane, fed by a brilliant reverse pass from Tanguy Ndombele, clinically fired across Martin Dubravka from the right-hand corner of the penalty area.

    The 27-year-old almost got a third, moments before Willock's goal, but his effort cannoned into the base of the post and behind.

    Newcastle - who have now only won two of their past 19 Premier League games - remain 17th, but move three points clear of Fulham who occupy the final relegation spot. The Cottagers would climb out of the bottom three on goal difference if they beat Aston Villa at 16:30 BST.

    Tottenham, who conceded a 97th-minute equaliser against Newcastle earlier in the season, move up to fifth - above Liverpool and West Ham - but remain two points behind Chelsea who are in the final Champions League spot.

    Substitute Trezeguet scored twice as Aston Villa hit three in the final 12 minutes to dent Fulham's hopes of staying in the Premier League.

    The Cottagers were on course to leapfrog Newcastle into 17th spot when Aleksandar Mitrovic pounced on an error by Tyrone Mings to fire his side ahead.

    Mings, captaining Villa in Jack Grealish's absence, messed up attempting a back pass to keeper Emiliano Martinez, allowing Mitrovic to sneak in and score.

    However, Mings atoned for his error to provide the cross for Trezeguet to equalise with a first-time shot before the Egypt midfielder scored the second three minutes later.

    England forward Ollie Watkins added Villa's third from inside the six-yard area.

    Manchester United came from behind to beat Brighton for the second time this season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side took a significant step towards confirming a place in next year's Champions League.

    Brighton looked set for the first Old Trafford victory in their history when former United striker Danny Welbeck reacted quickest after his initial header had been saved, nodding the visitors in front from close range.

    However, not for the first time this season, United improved from a lethargic opening period to sweep to victory in the second.

    Marcus Rashford levelled when he opened up his body and rolled an excellent shot into the corner from Bruno Fernandes' lay-off.

    Then, with eight minutes remaining, Mason Greenwood headed home his first Premier League goal at Old Trafford this season after Paul Pogba's volley had bounced into the ground.

    The result gives United an 11-point cushion in the battle for a top-four place, although West Ham and Everton could reduce that to eight if they both win their matches in hand.

    Crystal Palace's Michy Batshuayi scored a late equaliser to dent Everton's Champions League qualification hopes.

    The substitute latched on to Jeffrey Schlupp's pass and placed the ball beyond Robin Olsen into the bottom corner after 86 minutes.

    Returning from injury, Everton's James Rodriguez had given the Toffees a deserved lead with a superb right-footed strike in the 56th minute.

    The result all but guarantees safety for Palace, who are 12 points clear of the bottom three with eight games remaining.

    Everton are four points off fourth-placed Chelsea, having played one game fewer.

    Jesse Lingard scored a brilliant solo goal before West Ham held off a Wolves fightback to secure a victory that moves them into the top four of the Premier League.

    On-loan Manchester United midfielder Lingard has been in inspired form since joining the Hammers on 29 January.

    And he continued his impressive resurgence when he charged through the Wolves midfield and defence to slot in the opener early in the first half.

    Lingard was instrumental in West Ham's next two goals as he produced a brilliant flick on the byline to find Arthur Masuaku, whose low cross was turned in first time by Pablo Fornals, before Lingard led a quick counter to tee up substitute Jarrod Bowen to drive in the third.

    However, David Moyes' side had let slip a 3-0 lead in their previous game against Arsenal to draw 3-3 and they looked in danger of a repeat when Leander Dendoncker headed home just before half-time and substitute Fabio Silva rolled in a fine strike midway through the second half to reduce the deficit to one goal.

    West Ham dropped deep as they tried to hold onto their slender advantage and although Wolves dominated the closing stages they could not find a way through for a third time.

    With Chelsea having surprisingly lost 5-2 to West Brom at the weekend, this win moves West Ham up to fourth with 52 points. Defeat for Wolves, meanwhile, means they are 14th.

    Adama Traore struck a stoppage-time winner for Wolves as Fulham's hopes of remaining in the Premier League suffered another significant blow.

    Traore settled the game with a fierce angled drive with little time left.

    Earlier, Wolves had been denied a goal when the video assistant referee ruled that Daniel Podence's arm was fractionally offside before he crossed for Willian Jose to head in.

    Fulham stay 18th, a place and three points behind Newcastle.

    However, Scott Parker's side have also now played two games more than their nearest relegation rival and with just six games left to play have little room for further error.

    Allan Saint-Maximin inspired a brilliant turnaround as he came off the bench to earn Newcastle a vital win at Burnley with a goal and assist in the space of seven minutes.

    Steve Bruce's side were second best to a well-drilled Burnley, who took a first-half lead through Matej Vydra following excellent work by Chris Wood.

    But after the visitors had a penalty appeal for James Tarkowski's high foot on Sean Longstaff rejected via the video assistant referee, the game turned their way with Saint-Maximin's second-half introduction.

    Burnley were threatening to add to their lead when the French winger and forward Callum Wilson came off the bench after 57 minutes.

    But Saint-Maximin set up Jacob Murphy for the equaliser following a twisting run, and then scored a brilliant second goal with his left foot to earn a much-needed victory, which lifts Newcastle six points clear of the relegation zone.

    There were further chances for Burnley, who pressed aggressively for an equaliser, and are now just a point above their opponents as their own relegation concerns increased.

    But Bruce's side held on, earning a first win in eight games to their evident relief at the final whistle.

    West Ham 3-2 Leicester

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/56629084

    Jesse Lingard continued his stunning form with West Ham by scoring twice in the first half to set the Hammers on course for a crucial victory over fellow Champions League hopefuls Leicester City.

    The two sides came into the weekend occupying the last two Champions League spots, before wins for Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday nudged West Ham down to sixth place.

    But David Moyes' men showed they are up for the challenge of qualifying for Europe's top club competition for the first time, climbing back into fourth after going 3-0 up against Leicester, who had the hosts hanging on after a late rally.

    The Hammers took the lead as Arthur Masuaku's cross went through to right-back Vladimir Coufal, who cut back for Lingard to sweep the ball inside Kasper Schmeichel's near post from the edge of the box.

    Jarrod Bowen then beat the offside trap to race on to Issa Diop's long ball and square for Lingard to tap into an empty net for his eighth goal in nine Premier League games since arriving on loan from Manchester United.

    The 28-year-old forward, whose recent form earned him an England recall, then played a part in West Ham's third goal right after half-time as Bowen poked in from Tomas Soucek's pass to round off a clinical team move.

    Kelechi Iheanacho pulled a goal back to give Leicester hope, before grabbing his 11th goal in 11 games in stoppage time, but the Hammers held on to ensure they did not surrender a 3-0 lead for the second straight home game and move within a point of third-placed Leicester.

    Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers said he is "bitterly disappointed" after three of the club's players breached Covid-19 protocols ahead of Leicester's 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Sunday.

    Leicester are investigating three players for the breach of protocols, Sky Sports News has been told.

    James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury and Ayoze Perez were all left out for the crucial clash by manager Brendan Rodgers.

    Manchester United inflicted further damage on Tottenham's hopes of making the Premier League's top four as they came from behind to secure a fully deserved victory.

    Spurs went into this game knowing victory would keep them in touch with the Champions League places but another colourless performance led to what could be an expensive defeat.

    Edinson Cavani thought he had given United a first-half lead with a smooth finish from Paul Pogba's pass but the goal was controversially ruled out by referee Chris Kavanagh following a video assistant referee consultation after Scott McTominay caught Son Heung-min with his trailing arm.

    United's sense of injustice was increased when Son put Spurs ahead before the break but the visitors recovered impressively for a win that leaves them 11 points behind leaders Manchester City with a game in hand.

    Fred was involved in the build-up and conclusion of the equaliser after 57 minutes, pouncing after Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris had saved well from Cavani.

    And Cavani finally got the goal his superb movement and constant menace deserved with 11 minutes left when he launched himself to head beyond Lloris from substitute Mason Greenwood's cross. Greenwood completed the formalities with virtually the last kick of the game as he provided a finish that was too powerful for Lloris at his near post.

    Gabriel Martinelli scored in his first start since January as Arsenal ended a run of four games without a win with victory over the Premier League's bottom club Sheffield United.

    The Brazilian has endured an injury-plagued season, but was on hand to net his side's second with a finish into an unguarded goal after Aaron Ramsdale had pushed out Nicolas Pepe's shot.

    It was the 19-year-old's first goal since January 2020.

    It came between two Alexandre Lacazette goals - the first a neat first-half finish after Dani Ceballos' back-heel and the second a clinical effort in the closing stages after he was put clear by Thomas Partey.

    Sheffield United have won only four games this season and none since Paul Heckingbottom took caretaker charge a month ago and they had little answer to their opponents' increased efficiency.

    At 1-0 there was always a chance that this generous Arsenal side may provide the Blades with a way back in, but Martinelli's strike ended such home hopes.

    The win lifts Arsenal above Leeds and Aston Villa and up to ninth in the table, with 45 points.

    Sheffield United remain rooted to the bottom, 18 points from safety with just 21 left to play for. With their woeful goal difference, a loss at Wolves next Saturday will all but confirm their relegation.

    That was a monstrous performance by us in the second half and now with second place just about secured we can close the gap down, its been our best season post fergie, now we can build on it next season and challenge for the title.

    Jose is finished as a manager now, his tactics would work by frustrating teams and managers, these days he only frustrates his own players and team

    West Brom made it back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season with a 3-0 victory over Southampton.

    Matheus Pereira, Matt Phillips and Callum Robinson were all on target for Sam Allardyce's side.

    Mbaye Diagne also had an early header ruled offside, with the video assistant referee unable to find a definitive camera angle to overturn the decision.

    Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse missed a penalty in stoppage-time.

    West Brom stay second-bottom despite the win but are now eight points from safety, while Southampton remain in 14th.

    Brighton edged a point closer to Premier League safety with a goalless draw against Everton at Amex Stadium.

    The Seagulls climbed a place to 15th after the low-key encounter - seven points clear of 18th-placed Fulham who have played a game more.

    Brighton pushed for a winner late on but Neal Maupay lashed an effort over from 10 yards and Lewis Dunk had a header tipped over the bar.

    The point did little for Everton's hopes of Champions League qualification with Carlo Ancelotti's side seven points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham with a game in hand.

    They were without striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin because of injury and did not force Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez into a save until the 71st minute.

    Really disappointed by Carlo, injuries permitting, that he's losing fourth to Moyes. Irony overload.

    Harry Kane scored twice to cancel out Gylfi Sigurdsson's two goals and earn a point for Tottenham against fellow top-four chasers Everton at Goodison Park.

    England striker Kane was at his clinical best, capitalising on two mistakes in the Everton defence to put Spurs ahead in the first half and grab a second-half equaliser.

    In between Kane's strikes, Sigurdsson levelled from the penalty spot and gave Everton the lead by finishing off a fine team goal.

    He expertly guided in a left-footed strike from Seamus Coleman's cross but that only kicked Spurs into life and Kane equalised six minutes later.

    There were concerning moments in stoppage time, however, with Kane walking away gingerly from an awkward landing and having to be substituted.

    Everton pushed hardest for a winner and had the best chance to win it but Joshua King's effort was saved by Hugo Lloris and Richarlison fired the rebound over from 12 yards.

    Realistically, a draw suited neither side with Tottenham staying seventh, five points behind fourth-placed West Ham and Everton a point and a place worse off.

    Newcastle took a big step towards securing their Premier League status with a dramatic 3-2 win against 10-man West Ham.

    Issa Diop's own goal and a Joelinton tap-in had put the hosts in a commanding position at the break.

    However, West Ham, who had Craig Dawson sent off for two first-half bookings, drew level from a Diop header and a Jesse Lingard penalty that was awarded after a VAR review.

    But with the visitors seemingly on top, Newcastle had the final say, substitute Joe Willock heading an important winning goal that lifts Steve Bruce's side up to 15th in the table, with a nine-point cushion to the bottom three.

    West Ham remain fourth but have now played a game more than fellow Champions League hopefuls Chelsea and Liverpool, who will have the opportunity to leapfrog the Hammers before they play again.

    David Moyes' side had arrived in the north-east of England looking for a third consecutive win but were ultimately punished for a sluggish first half in which they conceded twice and had Dawson sent off.

    Prior to his dismissal Dawson's heavy touch saw him clatter Joelinton, allowing the impressive Allan Saint-Maximin to race clear and fire in a shot that Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Diop contrived to turn into their own goal.

    Dawson, who had been booked earlier for a foul on Joelinton, received his second yellow card in the aftermath and was dismissed.

    To compound matters Fabianski dropped a simple catch from a corner five minutes later to present Joelinton with a tap-in for Newcastle's second.

    However, the visitors improved after the break and were unfortunate not to claim a share of the spoils in a thrilling finale.

    Norwich will be returning to the EPL next year.

    ======================================

    Norwich City promoted back to Premier League as Brentford and Swansea fail to win

    Norwich City have won promotion to the Premier League for a fifth time, after Brentford and Swansea's failure to win ensured Daniel Farke's side could not be caught in the automatic places.

    The Canaries make an instant return to top flight following relegation to the Championship in the 2019-20 season.

    Only Watford, eight points behind, can now deny them the second-tier title for a third time.

    It is the earliest they have secured promotion since their first in 2004.

    Saturday evening's game against Bournemouth can edge them closer to securing the title with four games remaining after that.

    Norwich lost 13 of their last 15 Premier League games last season as they returned to the Championship after just one season in the top flight.

    But while most relegated sides struggle to turn around a losing mentality in the following campaign, the Canaries stayed calm and kept faith with head coach Daniel Farke and the nucleus of the squad which took them up the previous season.

    They gained just four points from their opening four games but moved to the top of the table with victory at Middlesbrough in late November, 12 games in, and hardly looked back.

    Norwich's previous promotion was done in swashbuckling style, scoring an incredible 31 of their 93 league goals after the 75th minute, though a defence conceding 57 goals in the Championship would prove not to be fit for purpose at the highest level.

    Sheffield United's relegation to the Championship has been confirmed with defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    Willian Jose got the decisive goal midway through the second half, slotting in Adama Traore's cutback.

    The Blades rallied late on as they tried to delay their drop and Enda Stevens brought a good save out of Rui Patricio, but they could not equalise.

    Defeat means Sheffield United are 19 points from a position of safety with six games left.

    Confirmation of relegation ends their two-season stay in the Premier League, after they marked their return to the top flight after a 12-year absence by finishing ninth last term.

    Arsenal 1-1 Fulham

    ==

    Eddie Nketiah's goal late in stoppage time for Arsenal delivered a major blow to Fulham's already slim Premier League survival hopes.

    Until his 97th minute effort Josh Maja's second-half penalty had looked likely to give the Cottagers a hugely valuable three points in their battle against relegation.
