🦁 English Premier League: How the top-six looks like after weekend action

The English Premier League continued this past weekend, with a number of entertaining clashes. 

Key events

Last-minute goal at Old Trafford

Manchester United left it late as they beat West Ham 1-0 at Old Trafford to move into the top-four. 

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the match, tapping in from close-range an Edinson Cavani ball to send the fans into a frenzy. 

Man City held

League leaders Manchester City failed to beat Southampton for the second time this season as they dropped points at St. Mary's.

The reverse fixture ended in a scoreless draw.

Winless Gunners

Arsenal are yet to win, let alone score, in their last four matches - all  played in January. 

They failed to break down an organised Burnley defense as they settled for a point at the Emirates on Sunday evening. 

Chelsea enjoy derby win

Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea bounced back to winning ways as goals from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva gave them a 2-0 win over London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening. 

It was the fourth time this season the Blues beat Spurs, having won the reverse fixture as well as a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final clash. 

It was also Antonio Conte's first league defeat since replacing Nuno Espirito. 


The top six has changed over the past few weeks, and we take a look at the current standings. 

Pep Guardiola's charges are comfortably perched at the top with a nine-point lead over second-placed Liverpool, who have a match at hand. 

It could change if the Reds, who won at Crystal Palace on Sunday, win their match at hand over City, which could cut the lead to six points. 

Third on the log is Chelsea, who have played one more match over their rivals. 

Arsenal dropped out of the top-five, with Man United now in the top four. 

Here is the latest standings;
