Manchester City, Arsenal and Southampton take all 3 points

At the top of the Premier League Manchester City kept their momentum rolling as they came from behind to beat a stubborn Huddersfield town in West Yorkshire.
Huddersfield took the lead on the stroke of half time thanks to an Nicolas Otamendi own goal, only for Manchester City all time leading goal scorer Sergio Aguero to add to his tally with an equaliser from the penalty spot within minutes of the re-start. In the second half, City upped their game and if not for some excellent work by Town’s goal keeper Jonas Lossl and a Leroy Sane effort hitting the woodwork City could have been well in front, but instead needed a late effort from man of the match Raheem Sterling to bag the 3 points and make it 11 premier league wins on the trot! To make matters worse for the home side, they will be without forward Rajiv Van La Parra for a few weeks after he was shown a straight red for his actions in a clash with Leroy Sane deep into injury time.
In a repeat off last years battle between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf moor it was a late Alexis Sanchez injury time penalty that proved the difference between the two sides as the visitors took the 1-0 win and the three premier league points.
For much of the match it was Gunners keeper Petr Cech that had been the busier of the two teams, twice having to deny Johann Gudmundsson, while also stopping an crafty free kick from Robbie Brady. However, when referee Lee Mason pointed to the spot when defender James Tarkowski was judged to have pushed Aaron Ramsey, it was the Chilean forward Sanchez that stepped up in injury time to find the net and send Arsenal into 4th in the table above North London rivals Tottenham who could only manage a 1-1 draw a day earlier.
In Sundays final game, Everton’s poor season continued as they travelled to Southampton only to come away with a 4-1 hammering at the hand of the Saints.
Dusan Tadic gave the home team the lead just before the 20-minute mark, only for Iceland International and the Toffee’s record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson to equalise on the strong off half time.
Unfortunately for the Everton fans that was as good as it got as yet again their team failed to improve on their 1st half performance instead they just Capitulated for the 2nd time in four days as Southampton ripped them apart with a brace from striker Charlie Austin, before Steven Davis wrapped up the scoring with his late effort from the edge of the box making it 4-1 and condemning Everton to another week in the relegation Zone.
