πŸ”₯ Four standout results from around Europe on Sunday

The title races in Spain and Italy remain as fiercely-contested as ever, while the chase for Champions League placings and the scrap to avoid relegation are the two top talking points in England.

Here are the major standout results from yesterday's action around Europe.

🗺 Spurs claim third away win to stay in contention for Europe

Tottenham's 3-2 win at Aston Villa was a perfect advertisement for the Premier League. In heavy rain and powerful wind, it wasn't a day for defenders and Toby Alderweireld put through his own net to gift Villa the lead. He atoned for that error by rifling Spurs level after latching onto a loose ball after a set-piece. In first-half stoppage time, Bjorn Engels was adjudged to have fouled Steven Bergwijn in the area; up stepped Son Heung-min who had his penalty saved by Pepe Reina but he tucked away from the rebound. Spurs led 2-1 at the break.

Bjorn Engels headed Villa an equalizer from a Jack Grealish corner and it looked as though the spoils would be shared until deep into stoppage time, Engels' poor touch was brutally capitalized on by Son who raced clear and tucked home coolly past Reina. What a game, but one that Bjorn Engels will want to forget in a hurry. 

🔴 Rampant Gunners hit Newcastle for four

Arsenal's 4-0 hammering of the Magpies means that they've kept consecutive clean sheets for the first time since April 2019. Mikel Arteta must have fired home a convincing team talk at half time with the scores level at 0-0 and Arsenal looking laboured. Eddie Nketiah squandered a gilt-edged chance to put the Gunners ahead but his blushes were spared as a second-half blitz put Newcastle to the sword. 

🦅 Lazio battles back to beat Inter 

The Eagles continue to soar in Serie A. Lazio's last defeat in the Italian top-flight came all the way back in September, against Inter, and they exacted sweet revenge on Sunday after going behind to Ashley Young's opener. Lazio is now just a point behind leaders Juventus after a stunning string of 15 wins and four draws from their last 19 league matches. Make no mistake, they are genuine title contenders, spearheaded by Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile. The Italian now has 26 goals & six assists in 24 league appearances.

🤐 Madrid's lead at the top of LaLiga cut to one point 

Zidane's side was uncharacteristically sloppy in last night's 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo, going behind to an early Iago Aspas goal and then conceding with 85 minutes played to throw two points away. Barca's win over third-placed Getafe on Saturday means it's awfully tight at the top once more.

Tonight, we'll be covering Chelsea vs Man United in the Premier League. Don't miss it, as the quest for Champions League places hots up.
