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

FRIDAY, 21 JANUARY

Watford 0-3 Norwich - MATCH REPORT

SATURDAY, 22 JANUARY

Everton 0-1 Aston Villa - MATCH REPORT

Everton's change of management did not result in a change of fortunes as Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard enjoyed a winning return to Merseyside with a 1-0 victory at Goodison Park.

Emiliano Buendia's header in first half stoppage time separated the sides to leave the Toffees still just five points above the relegation zone in 16th.

Brentford 1-2 Wolves 

Wolves won 2-1 at Brentford in a bizarre game delayed after a drone flew over the Community Stadium in west London.

Both teams had to leave the pitch after what was announced as an "unofficial drone" hovered above the stadium, with confused Wolves captain Conor Coady asking referee Peter Bankes "what's happening".

The players eventually re-emerged and the match resumed after a delay of almost 20 minutes.

Joao Moutinho's curler put Wolves ahead four minutes into the second half before Ivan Toney equalised with a 71st minute volley.

Ruben Neves clinched the points for Wolves in the 75th minute.

Leeds 0-1 Newcastle 

Jonjo Shelvey's second-half free-kick clinched third bottom Newcastle's much-needed 1-0 win over Leeds.

Shelvey curled home from 20 yards in the 75th minute, giving Eddie Howe's side only their second victory of the season.

Newcastle were under the pressure for long spells but they held on to climb to within a point of safety with a game in hand on fourth-bottom Norwich.

Manchester United 1-0 West Ham - MATCH REPORT

Super-sub Marcus Rashford struck a dramatic stoppage-time winner as Manchester United broke West Ham hearts and lifted the roof off Old Trafford.

United dug deep and secured victory with virtually the last kick of the game as Edinson Cavani crossed for fellow substitute Rashford to score in front of a rocking Stretford End to seal a 1-0 win.

Southampton 1-1 Manchester City - MATCH REPORT

Runaway leaders Manchester City were denied a 13th Premier League victory in a row after being held to a 1-1 draw by battling Southampton.

Aymeric Laporte headed a 65th-minute equaliser for Pep Guardiola's men following a surprise early opener from Saints defender Kyle Walker-Peters.

SUNDAY, 23 JANUARY

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley 

Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool  

Leicester 1-1 Brighton  

Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham - MATCH REPORT

Chelsea solidified their place in the Premier League's top four by beating Tottenham 2-0 on Sunday. 

A third defeat to Chelsea in the past month cost Spurs the chance to move into the top four while Chelsea had won just one of their previous seven league games to fall out of contention for the title.
