Arsenal Draw Newcastle, Man United Beat Bournemouth, Brighton Thrash Everton

Arsenal 0 Newcastle 0

NEWCASTLE United frustrated Premier League leaders Arsenal to earn a point with a dogged display at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal were hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points but found themselves drawn into an attritional and dogged encounter by a Newcastle Untied side with top four ambitions of their own.

Chances were at a premium and Newcastle’s Joelinton arguably wasted the best of all when he headed wide with the goal at his mercy in first-half stoppage time.

Manchester United 3 vs Bournemouth 0

Marcus Rashford scored again as Manchester United stretched their winning run in all competitions to six games with a comfortable victory over a hapless Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The England international tapped into an empty net after a Bruno Fernandes pass to score in a three successive Old Trafford league games for the first time.

His goal rounded off the scoring after Casemiro latched onto a Christian Eriksen free-kick with a beautifully cushioned volley to put Erik ten Hag’s side ahead half way through the first half.

They doubled their lead four minutes into the second period as Luke Shaw, playing in his more accustomed left-back role again, swept home an Alejandro Garnacho cut-back to complete a beautiful free-flowing move.

Everton 1 vs Brighton 4

Brighton piled the pressure on Everton manager Frank Lampard with an emphatic victory at Goodison Park.

Kaoru Mitoma gave the Seagulls the lead with a composed finish after Moises Caicedo picked out the Japan winger on the edge of the penalty area.

Everton fell apart completely after the restart as Brighton scored three goals in a remarkable six-minute spell early in the second half.

Ferguson, making his full Premier League debut, sidefooted Jeremy Sarmiento’s low cross into the top corner before turning provider for Solly March to drill home the Seagulls’ third.

Idrissa Gueye’s atrocious backpass was then easily intercepted by Pascal Gross, who coolly beat Jordan Pickford with a chipped finish.

Demarai Gray converted a late penalty for Everton, but it was nothing more than a consolation on a miserable evening for the hosts and their supporters.

Leicester 0 vs Fulham 1

Fulham continued their fine form as Aleksandar Mitrovic’s first-half finish was enough to see off Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The striker chested down Willian’s cross before firing home from close range in the 17th minute to help the Cottagers win their third successive match since the Premier League returned after the World Cup break.

Leicester almost levelled through Youri Tielemans, who smashed an 80th-minute effort against the crossbar.

Leicester, who were greeted with boos at the full-time whistle, fell to a third defeat on the bounce and remain three points above the bottom three in 13th.
