Manchester United 3-1 Newcastle

Scorers: Rashford 30′, James 57′, Fernandes 75′ (pen); Saint-Maximin 36′

Manchester United leapfrogged Leicester back into second after their 3-1 win over Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring with a fierce near post finish, before Newcastle equalised shortly after when Allan Saint-Maximin volleyed past David de Gea.

Daniel James restored the hosts’ lead after half-time, finding himself unmarked at the back post before lashing past Darlow.

Bruno Fernandes secured all three points from the penalty spot after Rashford was fouled by Arsenal loanee Joe Willock.

Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City

Scorers: Sterling 2′

Manchester City put one hand on the Premier League trophy as they beat Arsenal 1-0 to go 10 points clear at the top of the table.

City’s dominance has been all-encompassing these past few months and within two minutes here they showed just what a brilliant side they are.

A cross from the left found Raheem Sterling, who unmarked inside the area, headed past Bernd Leno for the opener.

Arsenal eventually grew into the game but struggled to create any meaningful chances on goal as City kept calling Leno into action.

João Cancelo went close late on but his outside of the right foot effort just squirmed past the far post as the league leaders claimed yet another win.

Aston Villa 1-2 Leicester

Scorers: Traore 48′; Maddison 19′, Barnes 23′

Leicester climbed to second in the Premier League table after seeing out a 2-1 win at Aston Villa.

With no Jack Grealish in the Villa squad it was clear that the home side lacked some fluency in the opening exchanges.

The Foxes meanwhile looked very much like a side who were Champions League-ready and scored inside the opening 20 minutes after a fine finish from James Maddison.

And it was another potential England star who doubled their lead just moments later – a Jamie Vardy shot was parried out by Emi Martinez, and there was Harvey Barnes to poke in the rebound.

Into the second half and Villa pulled one back immediately after a mix-up in defence saw Bertrand Traore stab home at the far post.

West Ham 2-1 Tottenham

Scorers: Antonio 5′; Lingard 47′; Moura 64′

Tottenham’s miserable run of form goes on as West Ham increased the heat on José Mourinho with a narrow London derby win.

It didn’t Michail Antonio long to shake off the fatigue issues which kept him sidelined as he netted a close range rebound to give the Hammers a dream start.

Jesse Lingard made it two moments after half-time when a swift break down the left ended in him lashing across Hugo Lloris and into the far corner.

Spurs gave themselves hope when Lucas Moura headed home a near post corner and almost nabbed a dramatic point but a thunderous Gareth Bale strike cracked the crossbar before a last gasp clearance ricocheted back off Heung-min Son and looped over Lukasz Fabianski – only to hit the post.

The result moves the Hammers back into the top four, while Spurs remain in ninth.
