Another huge day of Premier League football is here, with the top two and three of the bottom four all in action.

Arsenal 0-1 Burnley

Scorers: Aubameyang (og) 73′

It was another miserable evening for Arsenal after they lost 1-0 against Burnley at Emirates Stadium.

After a dull first half with few chances, the hosts came out firing after the break and forced Nick Pope into a number of good saves.

But Granit Xhaka – much like Nicolas Pépé against Leeds – cost his side with another ridiculous red card after grabbing Ashley Westwood by the throat.

To compile their misery, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang flicked a header into his own net giving Burnley the lead, and were unable to hit back before full time.

Leicester 3-0 Brighton

Scorers: Maddison 27′, 44′, Vardy 41′

Leicester jumped up to third after cruising past Brighton 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.

James Maddison opened the scoring with a smart left footed finish, before Jamie Vardy finished a brilliant team move to double their lead.

Maddison made it three just minutes later when he found space on the edge of the box, curling a brilliant strike past goalkeeper Mat Ryan.

Brighton were better in the second half but never really troubled the Foxes, who managed the game well and secured all three points.

Fulham 1-1 Liverpool

Scorers: Decordova-Reid 25′; Salah pen 79′

An out-of-sorts Liverpool needed a late penalty to rescue a point away to Fulham.

The home side were outstanding in the first half and their only frustration was that they didn’t have more than the one goal, a fine finish from Bobby Decordova-Reid, which would have been merited.

And Fulham were punished for not adding to that lead when Liverpool salvaged a point from the penalty spot after a handball, with Mo Salah squeezing the ball in from 12 yards for a point.

Liverpool stay second, level on points with table-topping Tottenham, while the Cottagers move two points clear of the drop zone.

Crystal Palace 1-1 Tottenham

Scorers: Kane 23′; Schlupp 83′

Tottenham returned to the top of the Premier League after drawing 1-1 with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Spurs took control early on and worked Vicente Guaita, before his unfortunate mistake allowed Harry Kane to score from long range.

But Palace grew into the game after half-time and earned a well-deserved equaliser when Jeffrey Schlupp bundled home an equaliser after Hugo Lloris spilled.

That caused an instant switch in momentum and Spurs were close to snatching all three points, only for Guaita to make outstanding late saves from Kane and Eric Dier.

Southampton 3-0 Sheffield United

Scorers: Adams 34′, Armstrong 62′, Redmond 83′

Southampton welcomed fans back to St Mary’s and went third in the Premier League on Sunday as a dominant performance saw them keep Sheffield United at the bottom of the table.

On top from the off, Saints went into a well-deserved lead before half-time Jan Bednarek kept a dead ball situation alive and Che Adams nudged home under Aaron Ramsdale.

Their lead was doubled after the break when Stuart Armstong’s fortuitous deflected trickled in, and the points were wrapped up by Nathan Redmond, who struck from the corner of the area after a smart one-two with Oriol Romeu.

Defeat leaves the Blades bottom of the league with just one point from 11 games.

Tottenham end matchday 12 on top spot, while Sheffield United remain rock bottom with just one point.
