It was a genuine Super Sunday in the Premier League as the Manchester derby took centre stage.

Here is what went down.

Scorers: Bale 26′, 50′, Kane 51′, 77′; Benteke 45+1′.

A Harry Kane-inspired Tottenham thrashed Crystal Palace 4-1 to move up to sixth and within two points of the Champions League qualification places.

The Spurs captain set up Gareth Bale for the opener as his low cross was turned in by the Welshman before Christian Benteke headed in a shock equaliser just before the break.

Kane and Bale combined again to restore the lead for José Mourinho’s side as the striker headed the ball into the path of the on-loan winger to nod into an empty net.

It was then time for Kane to turn from provider into goalscorer as he curled home a beautiful effort from 30-yards out to put the game beyond doubt before heading in Son Heung-min’s pull back to add some gloss to the scoreline.

The Eagles remain in 13th, eight points clear of the bottom three.

Scorers: Fernandes pen 2′, Shaw 49′

Manchester City’s winning streak ends at 21 games after they were beaten 2-0 by neighbours Manchester United in the derby.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took the lead after 101 seconds when Gabriel Jesus fouled Anthony Martial on the edge of the area and Bruno Fernandes stepped up to squeeze home the early penalty.

After soaking up City pressure, they pounced for a second shortly after half-time when a clever Dean Henderson throw found Luke Shaw to break down the left and after an exchange with Marcus Rashford, he trickled a low strike beyond Ederson.

Anthony Martial missed a huge chance for a third but it mattered little in the end as United held on for a third straight away win in the derby for the first time in over 20 years.

Despite the loss and the end of City’s stunning run of victories, they remain 11 points clear at the top, with United now moving up to second.

Scorer: Lemina 45′

Fulham inflicted a sixth consecutive home defeat on Liverpool to move level on points with 17th-placed Brighton in their fight to stay in the Premier League.

Jürgen Klopp made seven changes to the side with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mané starting on the bench and were second best throughout the encounter.

The hosts failed to clear a free-kick which led to Mario Lemina picking Mohamed Salah’s pocket inside the area before driving a low shot into the bottom corner just before half-time.

Liverpool improved in the second half and Diogo Jota’s volley forced an incredible save from Alphonse Areola before Mané came off the bench to head against the bar.

But Scott Parker’s side held out meaning they remain in the relegation zone only on goal difference while the champions remain in seventh, four points off the top four.

West Brom missed the chance to gain ground on Newcastle when the two sides could only manage a goalless draw at The Hawthorns.

Newcastle got in behind the West Brom defence on a couple of occasions early in the match, but the final pass let them down.

Matt Phillips missed a great chance to give the Baggies the lead when he blazed over the bar early in the second half.

The result leaves the Baggies 19th with 18 points from 28 games, while Newcastle are up to 16th.
