Chelsea have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table top six points, with Thomas Tuchel's side winning 3-0 at Leicester.

Antonio Rudiger opened the scoring for the visitors from a Ben Chilwell corner, glancing home deftly after some poor marking from the hosts - the goal was the 20th Leicester have conceded from set pieces since September 2020, a Premier League high.

N'Golo Kante doubled the advantage against his former side, running through the heart of midfield before firing past Kasper Schmeichel from just outside the area, before substitute Christian Pulisic made it three from close range.

Steven Gerrard's first game in charge of Aston Villa ended in a late 2-0 win over Brighton.

The Seagulls were resilient for much of the game, but Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings strikes in the final ten minutes ensured Gerrard got off to the perfect start.

Yep, that was the actual scoreline.

Christian Benteke put Palace ahead early on but they were soon pegged back by Ben Mee. Chris Wood had Burnley ahead after 27 minutes but it was Palace who would end the first half on top, with Benteke and Marc Guehi both finding the back of the net.

Maxwel Cornet grabbed the final goal of a bonkers back-and-forth game as the shares were spoiled.

With Eddie Howe watching on from isolation, Newcastle and Brentford put on a real barn-stormer in the first half.

Jamaal Lascelles's opener was almost immediately cancelled out by former Newcastle man Ivan Toney, before Rico Henry's go-ahead strike was wiped off by Joelinton shortly before the break.

Substitute Frank Onyeka put the Bees back in front, but his goal was cancelled out by Allan Saint-Maximin with 15 minutes remaining. So much for fixing that leaky defence, eh?

Norwich climbed off the foot of the Premier League table with a 2-1 win over Southampton at Carrow Road.

The two sides brought the fun during the early stages as both found the back of the net within the seven minutes. Che Adams put the visitors ahead before Teemu Pukki immediately cancelled that out to set up a tense second half.

While the Saints dominated the first half, Norwich were much better after the break and found a deserved winner through Grant Hanley.

Watford 4-1 Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job as Manchester United boss is hanging by a thread another embarrassing defeat, this time a 4-1 mauling at Watford.

The Red Devils were thoroughly outplayed in the first half by Claudio Ranieri's Hornets, who bagged twice through Josh King and Ismaila Sarr and even had a penalty (and a retake) saved by David de Gea.

Substitute Donny van de Beek (yes, really) pulled one back just after half time, before a foolish second yellow card for Harry Maguire put United on the back foot again.

Watford compounded United's misery with two goals in the dying embers as the Red Devils fell to another embarrassing defeat. Can Ole survive?

Wolves 1-0 West Ham

With so much fun elsewhere, Wolves and West Ham were calming things down on the goal front at Molineux - mustering just the one between them.

It was Bruno Lage's side who grabbed it after wrestling control of the game, and was delivered superbly by Raul Jimenez - the Mexican collecting the ball on the edge area and stroking home Daniel Podence's effort first time.

Liverpool blew Arsenal away in a 4-0 win at Anfield, getting their first Premier League since October and ending the Gunners’ 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

After a first half flashpoint that saw Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp have to be physically restrained during an ugly confrontation, Sadio Mane scored the opener for Liverpool. Diogo Jota made it 2-0 soon after the half-time interval, while goals later on in the second half from Mohamed Salah and Takumi Minamino took the game away completely away from Arsenal.

Rodri’s contender for goal the season was the pick of the strikes in Manchester City’s fairly routine 3-0 win over Everton at the Etihad Stadium.

The Spaniard’s power drive from distance flew into the top corner and was his team’s second goal of the day, sandwich in between efforts from Raheem Sterling in the closing stages of the first half and Bernardo Silva towards the end of the game.

Tottenham came from behind to secure new manager Antonio Conte his first Premier League win since May 2018, beating Leeds 2-1 in north London and pushing Marcelo Bielsa's team closer to the relegation zone.

Daniel James gave the visitors the lead just before half-time. Spurs were much better after the interval and hit the woodwork twice before the equaliser came from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Sergio Reguilon's first ever Premier League goal won it for Spurs and Conte.
