Man City see off Man Utd, Merseyside derby ends in draw, Arsenal claim point
Manchester City extended their run of consecutive Premier League wins to 14 -- equalling Arsenal's record -- with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United to move 11 points clear at the top of the table.
City opened the scoring at Old Trafford in the 43rd minute, with United failing to deal with a Kevin De Bruyne corner and David Silva pouncing on a loose ball to poke home from close range.
But United pulled level just a few minutes later in first-half stoppage time as Nicolas Otamendi and Fabian Delph were both unable to cope with a cross into the box, leaving Marcus Rashford unmarked to slot home.
City moved back ahead in the 54th minute through Otamendi, who was on hand to lash in the loose ball after United again struggled to deal with a set piece into the box, with Romelu Lukaku striking his clearance against a teammate.
United almost found the equaliser five minutes from the end, only for Ederson to produce an excellent double save to first deny Lukaku and then Juan Mata on the rebound.
Wayne Rooney netted from the penalty spot as Everton came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock for Liverpool just before half-time, with the Egypt international turning two Everton players before bending the ball into the top corner with a great strike.
But Everton found an equaliser 13 minutes from time when Dominic Calvert-Lewin was brought down in the area by Dejan Lovren, with Rooney stepping up to convert from the penalty spot.
Fourth-place Liverpool missed the chance to move up to third ahead of Chelsea, while Sam Allardyce's Everton moved into the top 10 with the point.
Olivier Giroud came off the bench to net a late equaliser for Arsenal as they secured a 1-1 draw against Southampton at St Mary's.
Southampton opened the scoring inside just three minutes when Dusan Tadic slid in Charlie Austin following a mistake from Per Mertesacker, with the striker then slotting past Petr Cech to net his fourth goal in four games.
Arsenal brought on Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Giroud as they searched for an equaliser in the second half, and with two minutes left on the clock, up popped the France international to head home an Alexis Sanchez's cross into the bottom corner.
The results sees Arsene Wenger's side move one point ahead of rivals Tottenham into fifth place.
