A comprehensive wrap of all the collated fixtures, scores and match reports from the Premier League:


Newcastle United 1-1 Norwich City - MATCH REPORT

Leeds United 1-0 Crystal Palace


Southampton 2-2 Leicester City

Wolves 0-0 Burnley 

Watford 1-2 Chelsea - MATCH REPORT

Chelsea needed Hakim Ziyech to come off the bench and score the winner 18 minutes from time at Vicarage Road to hold off Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.

After a half an hour hold up early in the match as a fan was attended to by emergency services, Mason Mount gave the European champions the lead.

Emmanuel Dennis hit back for Watford on the stroke of half-time and for a while it looked like Chelsea could drop points for the third time in four league games.

But Ziyech's powerful finish from Mount's cross maintained their slender one-point advantage over City.

West Ham 1-1 Brighton

Everton 1-4 Liverpool - MATCH REPORT

Liverpool thrashed local rivals Everton to pile the pressure on former Reds boss Rafael Benitez.

Liverpool had won only once in their last nine visits to Goodison Park, but the gulf in class between the sides currently was obvious as Mohamed Salah produced two more stunning finishes to take his tally for the season to 19 goals in 19 games.

Jordan Henderson opened the scoring before Salah curled the first of his double into the top corner.

Demarai Gray's strike briefly gave Everton hope heading into half-time, but further strikes from Salah and Diogo Jota gave the scoreline the reflection it deserved from a one-sided contest.

Aston Villa 1-2 Man City - MATCH REPORT

An injury-hit City dominated the first half and went in 2-0 up at the break thanks to brilliant finishes from Portuguese international duo Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva. 

Ollie Watkins pulled a goal back two minutes into the second half but City held out for a vital three points as Jack Grealish celebrated a victorious return to Villa Park.


Tottenham 2-0 Brentford - MATCH REPORT

Antonio Conte said Tottenham are starting to understand his philosophy after Son Heung-min's first Premier League goal since October sealed a win against Brentford.

A Sergi Canos own goal gave Tottenham the lead in the first half and Son wrapped up their second successive Premier League win after the interval.

It was Son's 75th top-flight goal since joining the north Londoners from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.

Man United 3-2 Arsenal - MATCH REPORT

Michael Carrick exited Manchester United with a win as Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed 800 goals for club and country with a double to see off Arsenal.

Carrick was taking charge for the final time as caretaker manager with new interim boss Ralf Rangnick watching from the stands and announced after the match he will leave the club rather than return to his coaching role.
