Premier League round up : Man City stay on top, Arsenal and Liverpool cruise

during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Southampton at Etihad Stadium on November 29, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Manchester City 2-1 Southampton

Raheem Sterling scored a dramatic win as Manchester City maintained their winning run with a last-gasp 2-1 defeat of Southampton. Saints had looked set to become the first team to deny City a victory since August when Oriol Romeu cancelled out Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected free-kick 15 minutes from time.

Arsenal 5-0 Huddersfield

Arsenal strengthened their position in the Premier League’s top four as they made light work of Huddersfield to maintain their home form. Alexandre Lacazette gave the hosts the perfect start with his seventh of the season and, although the Terriers rallied, they were blown away in the second half as Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Ozil all struck in a four-minute blitz, with Giroud adding another late on.

Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

Antonio Conte was sent off as Chelsea claimed a fifth Premier League win in six games with a 1-0 defeat of Swansea. The Blues’ only dropped points in their last six league games came at Liverpool last Saturday, while Swansea suffered a 10th loss of the season.

Stoke City 0-3 Liverpool

Substitute Mohamed Salah’s purple patch continued with two more goals as Liverpool fought a controversial 3-0 win at Stoke. Sadio Mane also got himself on the score sheet as Liverpool moved within two points from the fourth place.

Everton 4-0 West Ham

Wayne Rooney netted a hat-trick, including an incredible strike from inside his half, as Everton thrashed David Moyes’ West Ham 4-0 at Goodison Park while incoming boss Sam Allardyce watched on from the stands. Jordan Pickford saved Manuel Lanzini’s spot-kick just before the hour mark, and after Rooney’s outrageous effort from distance, Ashley Williams then added a header with 12 minutes of normal time to go.

Bournemouth 1-2 Burnley

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe endured a miserable 40th birthday as former club Burnley continued their fine away form with a 2-1 win at the Vitality Stadium. Josh King halved the deficit to set up a tense final 11 minutes, however, it was a deserved victory for Sean Dyche’s visitors and they have now recorded 14 points on the board this season, equalling their record tally in a Premier League season.
