Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Calvert-Lewin's brace stuns Chelsea💥 | Everton 3-1 Chelsea | Premier League Highlights

A Dominic Calvert-Lewin brace helped Duncan Ferguson win his first game in temporary charge of Everton, beating Frank Lampard's Chelsea 3-1 at Goodison Park.

Richarlison's early goal was pure theatre, rising above the visitors' defence to nod home to spark a Ferguson charge down the touchline after just five minutes.

It set the tone for an almost unrecognisable performance full of fire and heart after the former Toffees striker, taking over in the short term from the sacked Marco Silva, had called for "blood and thunder" from his under-achieving players.

Two goals for Dominic Calvert-Lewin after the break were more than deserved as even Mateo Kovacic's first Premier League goal failed to spoil the party.

Opta Stats

  • Chelsea have lost three of their last four Premier League games (W1), as many defeats as they suffered in their previous 20 in the competition.
  • Everton have secured consecutive league wins against Chelsea for the first time since November 1994.
  • Chelsea have registered only one clean sheet in 17 Premier League away games in 2019, a joint-low among teams to play in both seasons (Tottenham also have 1 in 16).
  • Everton forward Richarlison has scored in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time ever (89 appearances in total).
  • Everton full-back Djibril Sidibé has registered three assists in his last five Premier League games (all for Richarlison), as many as he managed in his 36 games in Europe’s big five leagues before that.

Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool

Salah on target as Liverpool go 11 points clear! | Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool | EPL Highlights

League leaders Liverpool took advantage of Nathan Ake's first half injury to inflict Bournemouth's fifth straight defeat and in the process move 14 points clear of Manchester City.

First-half strikes from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita put Jurgen Klopp's side on course for a comfortable afternoon at the Vitality Stadium.

Mohamed Salah's 10th goal of the season early in the second period sealed the three points as the European champions continued their seemingly relentless march towards a first title in 30 years.

Another miserable afternoon for Eddie Howe's side was compounded by apparent hamstring problems suffered by key defender Nathan Ake and star striker Callum Wilson.

Meanwhile, Liverpool's almost-perfect day in Dorset was slightly tempered by a first-half injury to Dejan Lovren.

The visitors dominated first-half possession but were kept at bay mainly by the excellent Ake, who particularly kept Salah quiet, and it was no surprise Liverpool finally found an opening just one minute after the defender was forced off injured.

Jordan Henderson deceived Bournemouth centre-back Chris Mepham with a long, diagonal pass which allowed Oxlade-Chamberlain to volley his sixth goal of the season beyond goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from level with the penalty spot.

Bournemouth's alarming slump looked likely to continue when they fell further behind a minute before the break following a slick Liverpool attack.

Midfielder Keita, making his first league start of the season, collected the ball from Lovren's replacement Trent Alexander-Arnold and then received it back from Salah's back-heel before taking a touch and calmly prodding past Ramsdale from 10 yards out.

Calamitous home defending led to the result being put beyond doubt just nine minutes into the second period.

Inexperienced centre-back Jack Simpson, on in place of Ake, gave the ball away to Keita. The Guinea international then advanced to slip in Salah, who raced away from Mepham to coolly roll home past Ramsdale and atone for a close-range miss in first-half stoppage time.

The three goals came in the space of just 19 minutes either side of half-time.

The visitors were content to wind the clock down rather than go full throttle for more goals and convincingly held on for a welcome first clean sheet in 14 games in all competitions.

Opta Stats

  • Liverpool have won 24 of their last 25 Premier League matches (D1), including 15 of their opening 16 to this season. They have scored two or more goals in 23 of those past 25 fixtures.
  • Bournemouth have become the first side to lose five consecutive top-flight meetings with Liverpool by a margin of three or more goals each time, having lost those five by a combined score of 17-0.
  • Liverpool kept their first clean sheet in 14 matches across all competitions since their last shutout away at Sheffield United in September. Indeed, they allowed Bournemouth zero shots on target, only the second time they have done so in a league match since the start of last season (also v Brighton in January).
  • Bournemouth have lost five consecutive games for the very first time in the top-flight, last losing as many league matches on the bounce back in March 2013 in League One.
  • Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah scored his 63rdgoal in his 100th Premier League appearance; only Alan Shearer (79), Ruud van Nistelrooy (68) and Sergio Aguero (64) scored more in their first 100 games in the competition than the Egyptian.
  • Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has scored more Premier League goals against Bournemouth (seven) than any other opponent, scoring in all five of his appearances against the Cherries in the competition.
  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored his first goal in 25 Premier League appearances for Liverpool since netting against Manchester City in January 2018, one year and 327 days ago.
  • Of the 19 outfield players to feature for Liverpool in the Premier League this season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita were the 15th and 16th to score respectively; only in 2015-16 have they had more different scorers in a single Premier League campaign (17, excluding own goals).

Tottenham 5-0 Burnley

Son scores SENSATIONAL goal as Spurs thrash Burnley! | Tottenham 5-0 Burnley | EPL Highlights

After suffering their first defeat under Jose Mourinho in midweek, Tottenham returned to winning ways immediately and in fine style, hammering Burnley 5-0.

It's now four wins from five games under Mourinho, while Burnley have lost 22 of their 29 games in London, as Spurs wrapped this game up within the first half with three goals.

Son Heung-min's wonder goal was the stand out moment, as Harry Kane bagged a fine brace and Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko also scoring in the rout.

Kane thundered Tottenham into a near-immediate lead that the hosts never looked remotely like relinquishing. The England talisman fired a trademark 25-yard opener, wrong-footing Burnley keeper Nick Pope with a minimal backlift strike into the left corner.

Son's neat first-touch lay-off gifted Kane the space and Burnley paid the price for standing off the arch-finisher.

South Korea star Son stepped through the Burnley traffic just four minutes later to help Spurs double their lead. The half's outstanding performer saw his shot rebuffed, but the quick-thinking Alli was able to hook the ball across the area - for Moura to bundle home.

Son's third and most destructive run on the ball saw him jink from one box all the way to the other - dancing passed numerous lacklustre tackles - and then still boast the poise to slot home a fine finish.

Kane, recovered from an ankle injury, to extend the one-way traffic after the break, checking in from the inside left before blasting into the roof of the net.

Sissoko made up for his first-half miss when prodding home after exchanging passes with Kane for Spurs' fifth.

Opta Stats

  • Jose Mourinho has seen his side score five goals in the Premier League for the first time since January 2015 (Chelsea 5-0 Swansea) – his Manchester United team never scored more than four goals in his 93 league games with the club.
  • Burnley’s 5-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur is their joint-biggest margin of defeat in the Premier League (0-5 v Tottenham - Sept 2009, 1-6 v Man City – April 2010, 0-5 v Arsenal – May 2018, 0-5 v Man City – Oct 2018).
  • Burnley have won just one of their last 28 Premier League games against the ‘big six’ sides (D6 L21), losing each of their last seven in a row.
  • Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has never lost a Premier League game against Burnley (P8 W5 D3 L0); only against Swansea City (9) has he played more games without tasting defeat in the competition.
  • Burnley have lost each of their last 10 Premier League games against sides starting the day in the top half of the league, scoring six and conceding 29.
  • Tottenham’s Son Heung-min has been directly involved in 15 goals in his 15 appearances at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in all competitions, more than any other player (9 goals, 6 assists).
  • Dele Alli has been directly involved in seven goals in five games under Jose Mourinho in all competitions (4 goals, 3 assists), over twice as many as he registered under Mauricio Pochettino this season (2 goals, 1 assist in 10 apps).
  • Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has provided two assists in a Premier League game for just the third time and the first since December 2017 (two assists against Southampton).

Watford 0-0 Crystal Palace

Watford fail to take their chances in front of new boss | Watford 0-0 Crystal Palace | Highlights

New Watford manager Nigel Pearson watched his team for the first time from the stands and saw them struggle in front of goal after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace.

Interim boss Hayden Mullins took charge for the last time at Vicarage Road and, despite plenty of possession, clear-cut chances were limited for the Premier League's bottom club.

It meant for the ninth time in 16 top flight matches this season, the Hornets failed to find the net, but Eagles manager Roy Hodgson would have been content with the point, with injuries badly affecting his team.

No goals were forthcoming before the break though and it was a case of whether either side could produce the required quality to open the scoring in the second period.

It was the Hornets who looked the most likely to make the breakthrough and Gerard Deulofeu curled wide from 25-yards in the 53rd minute.

Crucially Vicente Guaita was largely untroubled in the Palace goal aside from demonstrating his impeccable handling from several teasing Watford crosses.

In the space of four minutes, Jordan Ayew drilled over before Sarr headed off target and Gary Cahill then denied the Watford attacker with a superb tackle inside the area.

Guaita had to be alert to deny Gray and Sarr after the 90 minutes were up, but it ended goalless which is no surprise given these two are the two lowest scorers in the division.

Opta Stats

  • Watford are winless in their last 12 home Premier League games, their longest run without a victory on home soil in the league ever.
  • Crystal Palace have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League for the first time since March 2017, with the Watford also the third opponent in that run.
  • Watford are the only side in the top four tiers of English football yet to hit double figures for league goals this season (9).
  • Watford have failed to score in nine Premier League games this season, more than any other side.
  • This is only the second Premier League game this season not to see a single shot on target in the first half (also Leicester v Wolves in August).
  • Crystal Palace failed to direct a single shot on target for the first time in a Premier League game this season, last doing so in April against Everton.
  • Since his Premier League debut in December 2013, Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been fouled 503 times, with only Eden Hazard winning more fouls in that time (521).

Manchester City 1-2 Manchester United

Man City 1-2 Man Utd | Highlights

Liverpool were handed another huge boost in the race for the Premier League title after Manchester United stunned derby rivals Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp's side opened up an 11-point gap at the summit with victory over Bournemouth and defending champions City failed to keep the pressure on in the evening kick-off.

Marcus Rashford steered United ahead from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute after VAR adjudged that he was fouled in the box by Bernardo Silva.

And after the England striker clipped the crossbar, fit-again Anthony Martial squeezed an effort under Ederson six minutes later.

City searched for a way back into the match in the second half, scoring through substitute Nicolas Otamendi five minutes from time, but they slipped 14 points off top spot.

Opta facts

  • After their defeat to Man Utd, Man City are now 14 points behind league-leaders Liverpool; in English top-flight history, no side has ever gone on to win the title after being as many as 14 points behind the top side at the end of a day.
  • Manchester United are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games (W3 D2), winning consecutive league matches for the first time since March.
  • This is Pep Guardiola’s worst points return after the first 16 matches of a top-flight season in his managerial career (32 pts).
  • Man City boss Pep Guardiola has lost two home league games in a single season for only the third time in his managerial career (also 2014-15 with Bayern Munich and 2008-09 with Barcelona).
  • Man Utd’s Anthony Martial has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last 13 Premier League starts (6 goals, 4 assists). Indeed, the Frenchman has also scored in each of his last two appearances at the Etihad in the top-flight.
  • Marcus Rashford has scored 13 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions this season - equalling his best goalscoring return for Man Utd in a single season (13 goals in 47 apps in 2018-19 and 13 goals in 52 apps in 2017-18).
  • Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in 15 goals in his last 14 games in all competitions for Manchester United and England (13 goals, 2 assists).
  • Manchester United have both taken (8) and scored (4) more penalties in the Premier League this season than any other side.
