- Manchester United gave up a goal lead on two occasions to leave King Power Stadium with a point from Leicester. A point was good enough for Leicester City to remain a point and a position ahead of Manchester United in the standings but it wasn’t enough to get them 4 points clear; considering Manchester United still has a game in hand.
- It’s a 10-0 defeat in Crystal Palace in their last two league games.
Even with a numerical disadvantage, Aston Villa had little problem against Crystal Palace.
- It’s 4 draws in a row for Fulham after a goalless draw at home against a Southampton side that are also now three matches without a win.
- It could have easily been a bigger margin of victory for Arsenal.
Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Kieran Tierney was brought down in the box. Granit Xhaka scored a sensational goal from a freekick to send Arsenal into the break 2-0 up against Chelsea. Bukayo Saka scored a sensational chip/cross into the top corner of the net to score the only goal of the second half.
- A 2-0 win feels narrow for a team like Manchester City but it was still a win to close in on the top four. Manchester City win at home against Newcastle.
- Gylfi Sigurdsson handed Sheffield United a defeat that stretched their winless run in the season to 15 games.
Sheffield are 4 games from hitting the halfway mark without a win. Hopefully they can find one from Burnley, against Crystal Palace, Newcastle, before they meet Tottenham.
- Patrick Bamford scored the only goal of the match in the 5th-minute from the penalty spot to give Leeds a win at home against Burnley.
- West Ham avoided defeat at home to Brighton by coming from a goal down on two occasions.
- Despite taking the lead in the 12th-minute and dominating the game (as expected), Liverpool dropped two points at home to West Brom after Semi Ajayi headed in an 82nd-minute equalizing goal.
- Romain Saiss scored a late goal to cancel out Ndombele’s early lead.
Wolves earned a deserved point at home against Tottenham. Tottenham are now without a league win in 4 straight games.
