Tottenham 1-1 Arsenal
Alexis Sanchez scored a 74th-minute equaliser as 10-man Arsenal prevented Tottenham going top of the Premier League in a thrilling 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime.
The two sides could not be separated in what was billed as one of the biggest derbies in the history of the fierce rivals and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Arsenal, who lost from a winning position against Swansea on Wednesday, kept plugging away and levelled through Alexis Sanchez’s first league goal since October – meaning Leicester have the chance to further extend their lead at the top on Saturday evening.

Manchester City 4-0 Aston Villa
Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho was in action on Saturday though he could not replicate his goal scoring form in Manchester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
Iheanacho who scored a hat-trick against the visitors in their last meeting came in as a second half substitute in Saturday’s game.

With Pellegrini perhaps sensing an opportunity to improve the goal difference, Kelechi Iheanacho then came on to keep up the pressure.
The Nigerian immediately won a penalty as he was tripped by Ciaran Clark but Aguero struck the spot-kick against the base of the post.
With the win City have for now cut the gap with Leicester to seven points.
Chelsea 1-1 Stoke
Mame Biram Diouf netted an 85th-minute equaliser as Stoke halted Chelsea’s charge up the Premier League table in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

But in the 85th minute Diouf, who had missed two gilt-edged chances in the first half, made amends by taking advantage of a rare Thibaut Courtois slip to snatch a deserved point.
|Bertrand Traore who is from Burkina Faso had a good game as he started in place of Diego Costa|
But with just five minutes remaining Stoke got their reward – although it was handed to them by Courtois. Bojan Krkic sent Shaqiri clear down the right to swing in another cross straight onto the head of Diouf – and even he could not miss this time.
Everton 2-3 West Ham
Ten-man Everton chucked away a 2-0 lead and missed a penalty as West Ham showed their battling qualities to hit back for a dramatic 3-2 win at Goodison Park.
|Dimitr Payet inflicted pain on the Toffees with a 90th minute winner|
But in a huge swing of momentum Michail Antonio and substitute Diafra Sakho struck within four minutes of each other allowing Payet to nick three points in the 90th minute.
In an instant the match turned as first Antonio headed in Mark Noble’s cross and then Payet delivered for Sakho to equalise.
Sakho then turned provider as Payet once again grabbed the headlines for the Hammers.
