This Sunday’s fixture list felt like a proper ‘Super Sunday’.

Here’s how it went down …

All kick-off times GMT


Arsenal 1-2 Wolves

Scorers: Gabriel 30′; Neto 27′, Podence 42′

Wolves recover from early Jiménez scare to beat disappointing Gunners

Wolves were dealt an early blow at the Emirates when Raúl Jiménez had to be substituted following a sickening clash of heads with Arsenal’s David Luiz.

The Mexican striker was rushed to hospital and replaced by Fábio Silva.

Wolves were soon in front when a header from Leander Dendoncker crashed back off the crossbar, and Pedro Neto was on hand to finish the rebound.

But their lead lasted a matter of minutes, with Gabriel heading in Willian’s cross at the back post for 1-1.

Wolves went back in front in the 42nd-minute however. Bernd Leno saved an effort from Neto, but Daniel Podence tucked away the rebound for 2-1.

Bukayo Sako had a good chance to equalise early in the second half but was unable to get a clean connection on Hector Bellerín’s cross, before Adama Traoré had a decent shout for a penalty waved away at the other end.

Reiss Nelson came on for Willian and also missed an opportunity to equalise when he lashed a half-volley over the bar with 15 minutes to go.

Chelsea 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham moved back to the top of the table after a goalless draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

In a game lacking with any real openings, Steven Bergwijn had a shot flash just over the bar for Spurs in the first half while Timo Werner thought he had given the hosts the lead moments later but had his goal ruled out for offside.

Mason Mount came closest to breaking the deadlock in the final ten minutes when his powerful drive from the edge of the box forced Hugo Lloris into a fingertip save.

Olivier Giroud missed a golden opportunity to win the game in stoppage time when he got on to Joe Rodon’s poor head back to the keeper but the Frenchman’s chip landed straight into the arms of Lloris.

Chelsea remain in third place just two points behind José Mourinho’s side.

Southampton 2-3 Manchester United

Scorers: Bednarek 23′, Ward-Prowse 33′; Fernandes 60′, Cavani 74′, 90+3′.

Manchester United came from 2-0 behind to beat Southampton 3-2 at St.Mary’s thanks to a double from super-sub Edinson Cavani.

Southampton had stormed into the lead when Jan Bednarek glanced in James Ward-Prowse’s corner at the near post, before Alex McCarthy pulled off a stunning double-save to deny Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford from close range.

Ward-Prowse was the thorn in the side of United again ten minutes later when his free-kick beat David de Gea at his near-post.

However, the visitors pulled their way back into the match when Bruno Fernandes finished inside the area on the hour mark after getting on to the end of a Edinson Cavani chipped pass.

Fernandes then returned the favour for Cavani when his goal bound shot was headed in by the Uruguayan to level things up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Cavani rounded off the comeback with another header in stoppage time, turning in Rashford’s cross to pull off a remarkable win for United, who have now moved up to seventh in the Premier League table.
