FRIDAY, 16 APRIL

England forward Harry Kane suffered a worrying ankle injury ahead of next week's League Cup final after scoring twice in Tottenham Hotspur's draw away to Everton. - MATCH REPORT

SATURDAY, 17 APRIL

Newcastle 3-2 West Ham

Newcastle moved closer to Premier League survival after Joe Willock's late goal capped a thrilling win against 10-man West Ham that dented the visitors' bid for a top four finish.

Steve Bruce's side had squandered a two-goal lead in the closing stages at St James' Park, but Willock came off the bench to snatch a priceless winner. - MATCH REPORT

Wolves 1-0 Sheffield United 

SUNDAY, 18 APRIL

Arsenal 1-1 Fulham

Eddie Nketiah delivered a hammer blow to Fulham's bid for Premier League survival as the Arsenal striker's last-gasp goal rescued a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta's side were seconds away from a first ever home defeat against Fulham as they laboured to find a response to Josh Maja's second half penalty.

But Nketiah pushed Fulham closer to relegation deep into stoppage-time when he tapped in after the visitors failed to clear a corner.

It was a major setback for third bottom Fulham, who are six points behind fourth bottom Burnley and fifth bottom Brighton with just five games left.  

Man United 3-1 Burnley - MATCH REPORT

Manchester United moved within eight points of Premier League leaders Manchester City as Mason Greenwood's double inspired a 3-1 win over Burnley, while Eddie Nketiah's last-gasp goal gave Arsenal a 1-1 draw against struggling Fulham on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are unlikely to catch City, but Greenwood's late winner puts a little pressure on their bitter rivals with six games left.

MONDAY, 19 APRIL

Leeds United 1-1 Liverpool - MATCH REPORT

Liverpool were held to a draw away to Leeds United in a match overshadowed by the furious response to the Merseysiders' planned involvement in a breakaway European Super League (ESL).

The Reds opened the scoring before the interval through Sadio Mane only for Diego Llorente to equalise with his first Leeds goal, a header from a corner, three minutes from time.

A draw left sixth-placed Liverpool two points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham in the table.

TUESDAY, 20 APRIL

Chelsea 0-0 Brighton - MATCH REPORT

Chelsea moved into the Premier League's top four after a 0-0 draw against Brighton, but the result was completely overshadowed by the club's role in derailing the controversial European Super League.

WEDNESDAY, 21 APRIL

Tottenham 2-1 Southampton - MATCH REPORT

Tottenham made a winning start to life after Jose Mourinho as Son Heung-min's last-minute penalty sealed a vital victory against Southampton in their first match since withdrawing from the controversial European Super League on Wednesday.

Danny Ings put Southampton ahead, but Gareth Bale equalised before Son converted a last-gasp penalty.

Aston Villa 1-2 Man City - MATCH REPORT

Manchester City closed in on the Premier League title as the leaders fought back to win at Aston Villa.

Pep Guardiola's side were rocked by John McGinn's opener for Villa after just 20 seconds. But City recovered impressively as Phil Foden equalised before Rodri put the visitors ahead.

City defender John Stones threatened to derail his team's charge when he was sent off for a reckless foul on Jacob Ramsey just before half-time.

However, Villa were reduced to 10 men as well when Matty Cash earned a second booking for chopping down Foden in the second half.

City are 11 points clear of second placed Manchester United and need a maximum of eight points from their remaining five games to clinch a third Premier League title in four seasons.

THURSDAY, 22 APRIL

Leicester City 3-0 West Brom - MATCH REPORT

Jamie Vardy ended his two-month goal drought as Leicester blitzed West Brom 3-0 on Thursday to strengthen their grip on a Premier League top-four place and snuff out the Baggies' revival.

Brendan Rodgers' men were wobbling after losing their previous two top-flight matches but produced a dazzling attacking display against the insipid visitors at the King Power Stadium.
