Michail Antonio scored for the second successive game as West Ham edged struggling West Brom to move up to seventh in the Premier League.

Leicester moved top of the Premier League as goals from Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison defeated Chelsea.

Late goals from Bernardo Silva and İlkay Gündoğan ended Aston Villa's resistance as Manchester City moved top of the Premier League for the first time this season - for a couple of hours before neighbours United regained the leadership.

Paul Pogba scored a superb winner as Manchester United reclaimed top spot in the Premier League by coming from behind for a club-record equalling away win at Fulham.

Liverpool's 68-game unbeaten run at home in the Premier League came to an end as Ashley Barnes fired home a late winner from the penalty spot to secure a famous victory for Burnley.

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith believes his side can "do something special" after they beat Newcastle to increase the pressure on manager Steve Bruce.

West Ham David Moyes feels his side have "not scratched the surface yet" of their potential after they beat Crystal Palace to continue their flawless start to 2021 and move into the top four of the Premier League.

Steve Bruce said he may be on his worst run of results in 20 years as a manager but was encouraged by his Newcastle side's second-half display in a home defeat by Leeds.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta dedicated his side's Premier League win over Southampton to absent captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who missed the game for personal reasons.

Manchester City climbed to the top of the Premier League by handing West Brom another home hammering.

Chris Wood headed in a late winner as Burnley came from behind twice to grab an unlikely victory against Aston Villa in a thrilling match at Turf Moor.

Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea reign got off to a frustrating start as Wolves secured a point in a drab stalemate at Stamford Bridge.

Brighton's long winless run at home continued as they were held by fellow Premier League strugglers Fulham.

Leicester proved their appetite for a Champions League challenge after coming from behind to earn a battling point at Everton.

Bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United caused a stunning upset with a Premier League victory over title-chasing Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool returned to form in impressive fashion as the Premier League champions secured a convincing victory at Tottenham Hotspur.
