EVERTON 2-2 NEWCASTLE
Two goals in injury-time from Florian Lejeune grabbed Newcastle the most unlikely point as Everton threw away a 2-0 goal lead to draw 2-2.
As the game ticked deep into stoppage time, Everton looked to have the game all sewn up after Moise Kean netted his first goal for the club (30) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin grabbed his 10th Premier League goal of the campaign (54).
Jordan Pickford – on his 100th Premier League start – didn’t have a save to make until the 87th minutes as Steve Bruce’s side were outplayed all over the pitch.
However, Lejeune acrobatically hooked one home following a set piece (90+4) and then the substitute left Goodison Park stunned by scrambling home the most dramatic equaliser (90+5) that needed goal line technology to award the goal.
SHEFFIELD UNITED 0-1 MANCHESTER CITY
Sergio Aguero came off the bench to score a sixth goal in his last three Premier League games and earn Manchester City a 1-0 win over Sheffield United.
The Argentina striker tapped in at the far post in the 73rd minute following another perfectly weighted cross from Kevin De Bruyne, giving the Belgian his 15th assist of the campaign.
Aguero had come on six minutes earlier as a substitute for Gabriel Jesus, who had a first-half penalty saved by Dean Henderson.
As important as the victory for City was the return of France centre back Aymeric Laporte after nearly five months out with a serious knee injury.
BOURNEMOUTH 3-1 BRIGHTON
Clinical finishing and a superb performance from goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale took Bournemouth to a much-needed 3-1 victory over fellow south coast strugglers Brighton and eased the pressure on boss Eddie Howe.
The visitors dominated the opening half an hour at the Vitality Stadium, with Neal Maupay drawing a stunning one-handed close-range stop from Ramsdale but Harry Wilson smacked home Bournemouth’s opener (36) against the run of play.
Howe’s struggling side then pulled two clear when Brighton’s Pascal Gross diverted the ball into his own net under pressure from Callum Wilson from a corner (41) and Ramsdale proceeded to pull off a string of fine saves after the break to maintain the advantage.
Callum Wilson (74) then coolly slotted home a third to seal the points and, although Aaron Mooy eventually found a way past Ramsdale, Bournemouth held on for just their second win in 13 Premier League games.
ASTON VILLA 2-1 WATFORD
A 95th-minute winner off the boot of Tyrone Mings gave Aston Villa a priceless 2-1 victory over Watford to leapfrog their opponents and claw themselves out of the relegation zone.
Deep into stoppage time, defender Ezri Konsa’s strike deflected off the boot of Mings and into the far corner of the net to deal Watford a huge blow in a relegation six-pointer.
Earlier, in their first meaningful attack, Troy Deeney’s simple header from a Gerard Deulofeu delivery put Watford ahead (38), his sixth goal in just four games against Villa.
Villa were then back on terms midway through the second half as substitute Douglas Luiz arrived at the back post to strike into the roof of the net (68), and after piling on the pressure thereafter, Villa finally got their winner.
The result means Villa now sit 16th, two clear of the relegation zone, while Watford are back in 19th with their first defeat in six games under Nigel Pearson.
CRYSTAL PALACE 0-2 SOUTHAMPTON
Southampton made an impressive return to form as goals from Nathan Redmond and Stuart Armstrong secured a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were on the receiving end of a second-half blitz from Wolves at the weekend as they surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2, but they were good value for their victory at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.
Redmond’s thunderous third Premier League goal of the season midway through the first half sent Saints on their way (22) before Armstrong consolidated their advantage with his second goal in three games (47).
The result means Southampton have recorded five wins in their last seven Premier League games – aided by a third clean sheet in six – as Hasenhuttl’s side rise to ninth in the table, leapfrogging Palace in 10th spot.
