Tottenham want Conte, Rudiger happy at Chelsea, Unai Emery favourite for Newcastle job


It was a crazy day at the top end of the Premier League yesterday.

Chelsea are the new league leaders after a 3-0 win at Newcastle thanks to a Reece James double and a Jorginho penalty.

Liverpool let the Blues through after they threw away a two-goal lead at home to Brighton which saw the Seagulls battle back to draw 2-2.

But fellow title challengers Manchester City had an even worse time of it with a 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace in which Aymeric Laporte saw red.

Arsenal continued their fantastic run of form as they won 2-0 at Leicester.

Gabriel and Emile Smith Rowe scored the first-half goals to give the Gunners all three points.

But it was goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale who got all the plaudits after the game thanks to his superb performance including a breath-taking save from a James Maddison free-kick.

Burnley lifted themselves out the bottom three with an emphatic 3-1 win at home to Brentford.

And Southampton also picked up a vital three points with a 1-0 win at home to Watford that saw them move 14th.

Today sees Leeds travel to Norwich in the early kick-off in a huge relegation battle.

It’s a claret and blue derby at Villa Park as high-flying West Ham visit Aston Villa who are looking to end a run of three consecutive defeats.

And the Premier League gameweek wraps up on Monday night when Wolves host Everton.
