However, it was a gloomy weekend for Arsenal, Man City, and Tottenham fans as the three teams faltered in their outings.

City were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Southampton on Saturday, January 22, with the result ending the EPL giants' 12-match unbeaten streak.

However, Pep Guardiola's men remain top on the log with 57 points, nine ahead of second-placed Liverpool who still have a match to play.

The Reds hammered Crystal Palace 3-1 in their own meeting staged at Selhurst Park to keep their title hopes alive.

This is despite the west Londoners securing a 2-0 comfortable win over rivals Tottenham in the London derby on Sunday, January 23.

Hakim Ziyech's stunner and Thiago Silva's goal were enough to inspire the Blues to victory to bounce back to winning ways.

Man United, meanwhile, sneaked back to the top four following their 1-0 hard-fought win over West Ham at Old Trafford.

United had to rely on a late strike from Marcus Rashford to redeem their dream of playing in the Champions League.

The Red Devils currently sit fourth with 38 points, one ahead of fifth-placed West Ham and two ahead of Arsenal and Tottenham who sit sixth and seventh respectively.

On the other end of the table, Norwich hammered Watford 3-0 to move a point above safety, with the Hornets joining Newcastle and Burnley in relegation.
