Chelsea saw their lead at the of the Premier League decrease as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Man Utd.

Despite dominating the game, a mistake by Jorginho allowed Jadon Sancho to race through and score his first Premier League goal since joining Man Utd from Borussia Dortmund.


But Jorginho atoned for his error by equalising from the penalty spot to earn Chelsea a point.

That result means that Man City are now only one point behind Chelsea after they beat West Ham 2-1 on Sunday. Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho found the net for City, with Manuel Lanzini grabbing a consolation four minutes into injury time.

Liverpool are two points off Chelsea, following an emphatic 4-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday.

A brace from Diogo Jota and then two more from Thiago Alcantara and Virgil Van Dijk ensured all three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side and saw them go second, before Manchester City and Chelsea play on Sunday.

The one-sided affair at Anfield was the biggest news in the English top flight on Saturday, but Arsenal certainly did their best to steal the show in the early kick off.

Against a revitalised Newcastle United side under the management of Eddie Howe, Mikel Arteta’s side eventually claimed all three points through second half goals from Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa continued their impressive turnaround under new manager Steven Gerrard, with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace. Goals from Matt Targett and John McGinn were enough to see the Birmingham side move up to eleventh.

Brentford beat Everton 1-0 thanks to an Ivan Toney penalty, while Leicester beat Watford 4-2, with Jamie Vardy scoring a double against his former title-winning manager Claudio Ranieri.

As for the rest of the Premier League fixtures on Saturday, there’s very little to be said of Norwich and Wolves sharing the points in a dull 0-0 draw other than to say the Canaries are now three games unbeaten.

Similarly, Brighton 0-0 Leeds United did very little to entertain fans of the English top flight in the Saturday late game.
