MANCHESTER CITY 1-2 MANCHESTER UNITED
Manchester United landed another body blow to Manchester City’s hopes of retaining the Premier League title with a 2-1 derby win at the Etihad that leaves the champions 14 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool.
Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored the goals for the visitors, who withstood a late City rally after Nicolas Otamendi pulled a goal back to move up to fifth and within five points of the top four.
BOURNEMOUTH 0-3 LIVERPOOL
Jurgen Klopp could hardly have asked for more as his Liverpool side eased their way to a comfortable 3-0 win at Bournemouth ahead of Tuesday’s decisive Champions League visit to RB Salzburg.
First-half goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita put the Reds in control before Mohamed Salah wrapped up the win early in the second half while a first clean sheet since September ensured there was no chance of a late scare.
Victory moved Klopp’s Premier League leaders 11 points clear of Leicester City, 24 hours before Brendan Rodgers’ team face Aston Villa, and added more pressure on Manchester City after their derby disappointment.
EVERTON 3-1 CHELSEA
Chelsea slipped to their third Premier League defeat in four matches on Saturday as Everton bounced back from their Merseyside derby humiliation to win 3-1 and escape from the relegation zone.
Former fans’ favourite Duncan Ferguson is in interim control at Goodison Park after Marco Silva was sacked on Thursday and the former forward had an instant impact.
Goals early in each half from Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin put the home side 2-0 up and although Mateo Kovacic pulled one back, Calvert-Lewin struck again late to seal the win.
The three points for Everton lifts them to the relative comfort of 14th spot in the table.
Frank Lampard’s men remain in fourth place.
TOTTENHAM 5-0 BURNLEY
Son Heung-min scored a sublime contender for the Premier League’s goal of the season as the South Korean’s moment of genius inspired Tottenham’s 5-0 rout of Burnley on Saturday.
On the day he was presented with the AFC Asian International Player of the Year award by compatriot Park Ji-sung, Son underlined his place among the game’s elite with arguably the greatest effort of his glittering career.
With Spurs already rampant after early goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, Son stole the show before halftime when he ran from deep inside his own half past a host of Burnley defenders and capped the astonishing burst with an ice-cool finish.
WATFORD 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE
Watford’s new manager Nigel Pearson watched his team for the first time from the stands and saw his players struggle in front of goal in a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.
Interim boss Hayden Mullins took charge for the last time at Vicarage Road but clear-cut chances were limited for the Premier League’s bottom club.
It was the ninth time in 16 top-flight matches this season that the Hornets failed to score.
Watford has now won only once in the league this season and sits at the bottom of the standings.
Quique Sanchez Flores was fired less than three months into his second spell as Watford manager.
