Everton and Arsenal played out a dire goalless draw at Goodison Park as respective new bosses Carlo Ancelotti and Mikel Arteta watched from the stands.

Ralph Hassenhuttl says his Southampton side will get a "lift mentally" after climbing out of the Premier League's bottom three with a convincing win at Aston Villa.

Burnley's Jay Rodriguez scored an 89th-minute winner to beat Bournemouth in a dire match at Vitality Stadium.

Oliver McBurnie scored the winner as Sheffield United beat Brighton to move up to fifth in the Premier League, with boss Chris Wilder revealing he "had a hunch" it was time for his record signing to return to the side.

Manager Steve Bruce said he "hadn't heard a roar like it" as Newcastle fans celebrated Miguel Almiron's first goal for the club.

Raul Jimenez scored his 16th goal of the season as Wolves came from behind to win 2-1 at Norwich, who are now six points from safety in the Premier League.

Liverpool remain 10 points clear at the top of the table after an enthralling battle between their two nearest rivals saw Manchester City fight back from a goal down to beat Leicester.

Nigel Pearson say he is "very confident" that his Watford team can avoid relegation from the Premier League after they collected just their second win of the season against Manchester United at Vicarage Road.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard out-manouevred his one-time mentor Jose Mourinho - but a comfortable win at Tottenham was overshadowed by alleged racist behaviour aimed at visiting defender Antonio Rudiger.
