A comprehensive wrap of all the kick-off times, results and match reports for the English Premier League fixtures:


Burnley 1-1 Arsenal - MATCH REPORT

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka compromised his side's faint hopes of a top four finish in the Premier League as the Swiss midfielder's embarrassing mistake gifted Burnley a 1-1 draw on Saturday. 

Sheffield United 0-2 Southampton

Southampton are now 10 points clear of the relegation zone after easing fears they could be dragged into a battle for survival.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's men topped the table in November, but a run of one point from a possible 27 had them looking over their shoulders.

Aston Villa 0-0 Wolves 

Aston Villa's unexpected challenge for the top four is also faltering after a 0-0 draw left them seven points adrift of Chelsea in ninth.

Villa again lacked the creativity of injured captain Jack Grealish as it was Wolves who twice came closest to a winner through their skipper Conor Coady.

Brighton 1-2 Leicester City – MATCH REPORT

Leicester looked lifeless for the first 45 minutes without James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, but they bounced back after the break for a first win in four games.

"First half we weren't good enough, we didn't press the game well enough and didn't pass it well," said Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.


West Brom 0-0 Newcastle United 

Newcastle United battled to a dull 0-0 draw against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns to move up to 16th in the Premier League.

Liverpool 0-1 Fulham - MATCH REPORT

Mario Lemina condemned troubled Liverpool to a sixth successive home defeat as Fulham earned a shock 1-0 win that left the champions' top four bid in turmoil on Sunday.

In a sign of how far they have fallen, even third-bottom Fulham easily out-played Liverpool to secure three points at Anfield for the first time in nine years.

Man City 0-2 Man United MATCH REPORT

Manchester United shattered Manchester City's record winning streak with an impressive 2-0 victory against the Premier League leaders, while Liverpool hit a new low as relegation-threatened Fulham won at Anfield on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side were on an English top-flight record run of 21 successive wins in all competitions heading into the Manchester derby.

But United ruined City's 28-game unbeaten run in all competitions thanks to an early penalty from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw's second-half strike at the Etihad Stadium.

Tottenham 4-1 Crystal Palace - MATCH REPORT

Jose Mourinho took a swipe at the critics who label him defensive after Tottenham reached 100 goals this season with a 4-1 thrashing of Crystal Palace on Sunday.


Chelsea 2-0 Everton - MATCH REPORT

Chelsea eased to a 2-0 win over Everton to continue their impressive form under Thomas Tuchel in a game they dominated.

An own goal from Ben Godfrey in the first half and a Jorginho penalty in the second secured victory for the team from London.

Chelsea are 4th on the EPL table with Everton in 6th.

West Ham 2-0 Leeds United

West Ham's unexpected bid to finish in the top four gathered pace with a confident dismantling of Leeds at the London Stadium. - MATCH REPORT


Man City 5-2 Southampton  - MATCH REPORT

Manchester City bounced back after their 21-game winning streak came to an end with a convincing  win over Southampton to move 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League.
