LIVE: KANE GETS SPURS BACK IN IT! ARSENAL SLIP AND PRESSURE AT LEEDS
There are five Premier League fixtures to enjoy across the day on Sunday.
Keep checking back for the latest updates.
Tottenham v Newcastle
Scorers: KAne 54′; Wilson 31′, Almirón 40′
Spurs started brightly and came close to an opener inside three minutes, only for Heung-min Son to curl his effort from 25 yards onto the roof of the net before Harry Kane then had an effort well saved by the foot of Nick Pope.
After half an hour, Newcastle grabbed the lead when Hugo Lloris lost the ball outside his area to Callum Wilson, allowing the Magpies striker to scoop a calm finish over the prone goalkeeper and into the empty net.
Five minutes before the break, the away side doubled their advantage when Lloris again lost possession and this time Miguel Almirón tore into the after easily evading two challenges and swept under Lloris for the second.
After a strong start to the second half from Newcastle amid a torrential downpour, it was Spurs who struck next as Harry Kane stooped to head in at the back post from a corner moments after Eddie Howe’s men had a big penalty appeal for handball turned down.
Arsenal slip up in Southampton
Scorers: Armstrong 65′; Xhaka 11′
Arsenal’s Premier League winning streak was snapped at four games as they were pegged back in a frustrating draw at Southampton.
After a bright start, Arsenal took a deserved lead on 11 minutes as Granit Xhaka repeated his midweek trick by rifling a half-volley high into the net on his right foot after being found in the centre of the area by Ben White.
The Gunners had strong penalty appeals for a foul on Gabriel Jesus in the area waved away after that before Bukayo Saka controversially saw yellow for diving on the edge of the box.
Arsenal’s start to the second half was sluggish and they were duly pegged back when Moi Elyounoussi, who moments earlier had made an incredible last ditch challenge to deny Gabriel Jesus, played in Stuart Armstrong with a perfect pass and he calmly found the far corner for a share of the points.
The result means Arsenal’s lead atop the table is now two points, while the Saints go 15th.
Villa turn on style without Gerrard
Scorers: Bailey 2′, Ings 7′, pen 14′, Watkins 58′
Aston Villa produced a stunning display in their first game since sacking Steven Gerrard as they put four past Brentford without reply.
It didn’t take long for them to vindicate that decision to part ways with their former coach as Leon Bailey gave stand-in boss Aaron Danks a dream start by firing past David Raya after just 63 seconds.
They doubled their lead just five minutes later. Looking dangerous every time they went forward, Bailey turned provider this time to set up Danny Ings to make it two.
And before long, it was three as Ashley Young handed penalty duties over to Ings who dutifully dispatched the kick down the middle for a dream start in Birmingham.
Incredibly before half-time Douglas Luiz came close to scoring directly from a corner kick for what would have been the fourth time in the past three months – only for his delivery to strike the post.
Villa did make it four shortly before the hour when Ollie Watkins netted against his former club and end his longest goal drought in the claret and blue by finishing at the third attempt from close range as they move up to 14th.
Listless Leeds leave Marsch in trouble
Scorers: Rodrigo 21′, Summerville 90+1′; Mitrović 26′, De-Cordova Reid 74′, Willian 84′
Fulham turned the pressure up big time on Leeds boss Jesse Marsch as they came from behind to register a big win at Elland Road.
On 21 minutes, Leeds scored the opener they so desperately needed when a Jack Harrison effort took a deflection and looped to the back post where Rodrigo pounced to head home for the hosts.
But that joy was short-lived as Fulham levelled within five minutes through the in-form Aleksandar Mitrović as his header from a corner spilled beyond Illan Meslier’s grasp and into the net but he made amends for that with a vital stop to deny Andreas Pereira when in one-on-one.
With 15 minutes remaining, the visitors completed their turnaround and increased the pressure at Elland Road when Bobby De Cordova-Reid was left unmarked in the area to head beyond Meslier from Pereira’s cross.
The game was then put beyond doubt when Harrison Reed teed up Willian for a simple finish to move the Cottagers up to seventh, while Leeds remain in the relegation zone, despite Crysencio Summerville’s late goal.
Leicester lift tension with their most clinical win
Scorers: Tielemans 9′, Barnes 20′, Maddison 66′, Vardy 80′
Leicester scored four goals from just four shots on target to leave Molineux in mutiny on Sunday afternoon.
Leicester took an early lead against Steve Davis’ side through Youri Tielemans blasting in a glorious strike from 25 yards after nine minutes at Molineux.
And they soon added to their advantage through Harvey Barnes as he calmly finished past José Sá with Wolves defending leaving a lot to be desired.
With just their third shot of the game (compared to Wolves’ 20 by that point), the clinical Foxes made it 3-0 when James Maddison found the corner with a low effort.
And things got even better for Leicester in what could be a season-changing result as, with shot number four of the day, they got their fourth through Jamie Vardy’s finish from inside the area from a Timothy Castagne cross.
That result will alleviate some of the anxiety for boss Brendan Rodgers, who sees his side move out of the drop zone with the win, while Wolves are rooted to second bottom.
