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

FRIDAY, 14 JANUARY

Brighton 1-1 Crystal Palace

SATURDAY, 15 JANUARY

Manchester City 1-0 Chelsea - MATCH REPORT

Manchester City took another huge step towards retaining the Premier League title as one moment of inspiration from Kevin De Bruyne saw off Chelsea to open up a 13-point lead at the top of the table.

Newcastle 1-1 Watford

Norwich 2-1 Everton

Burnley v Leicester - postponed

Wolves 3-1 Southampton

Aston Villa 2-2 Manchester United - MATCH REPORT

Philippe Coutinho made a dream debut for Aston Villa as the Brazil star's late equaliser capped a thrilling fightback from two goals down against Manchester United in a draw at Villa Park.

Four years after he last played in the Premier League with Liverpool, Coutinho made an instant impact on his return to England following his loan move from Barcelona this week.

Coutinho came off the bench midway through the second half with Villa trailing 2-0 after Bruno Fernandes's double for United.

The 29-year-old provided the assist for Jacob Ramsey to give Villa hope with 13 minutes left.

Coutinho then converted Ramsey's cross five minutes later to ensure Steven Gerrard's side made amends for their FA Cup third round exit at United on Monday.

SUNDAY, 16 JANUARY

West Ham 2-3 Leeds  

Jack Harrison hit a hat-trick as Leeds boosted their bid for Premier League survival with a win against West Ham.

Harrison put Leeds ahead at the London Stadium and netted again after Jarrod Bowen's equaliser.

When Pablo Fornals hauled West Ham level in the second half, Harrison had an instant response as the midfielder completed his treble.

Marcelo Bielsa's side made it two successive league victories to climb nine points clear of the relegation zone.

It was sweet revenge for Leeds, who were knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round at West Ham just a week ago.

Liverpool 3-0 Brentford - MATCH REPORT

Liverpool kept their slim hopes of reeling in Manchester City at the top of the Premier League alive by seeing off Brentford at Anfield to move up to second in the table.

Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino scored the goals as the Reds coped without the absence of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Tottenham v Arsenal - postponed
