With fourth placed Arsenal, Liverpool, West Bromwich and fast fading reigning champions - Chelsea among those set to be in action on Sunday, there was no shortage of excitement in the PL as Manchester City got their Premier League title challenge back on track with a 3-1 win over Southampton.

On Saturday Night Football, Leicester City's Jamie Vardy wrote his name into Premier League history as he scored for the 11th successive time in his side's one all tie with Manchester United, but both teams missed the chance to go top of the table with the draw at King Power Stadium.

At the vitality Stadium, Bournemouth and Everton duked it out to the very last minute with Junior Stanislas 98th minute goal earning Bournemouth a point in a dramatic 3-3 tie at the Vitality Stadium.

Elsewhere, Sunderland lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with just their third PL win of the season, as two late goals saw off 10-man Stoke, Crystal Palace came from behind to hammer Newcastle 5-1 as Alan Pardew came out on top against his former side, Watford beat Aston Villa 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at Villa Park to leave the hosts bottom of the PL and at Villa Park, hosts A. Villa raised their losing streak from a dozen to thirteen as they went down 2-3 to Watford in a thrilling encounter to leave them glued to the bottom of PL with 5points.

Liverpool were the only PL winning side on Sunday, - James Milner's PK was enough to secure Jurgen Klopp's first home Premier League win as Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge returned in Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Swansea while West Ham and Wes Bromwich divvied the points at Upton Park.

Also on Sunday Arsenal made it 3 PL games without a win as they failed to tame a feisty Norwich side at Carrow Road - settling instead for a point and Tottenham and Chelsea played out a goalless draw at White Hart Lane on Sunday with both goalkeepers made to work for their clean sheets.

Bournemouth 3-3 Everton

Junior Stanislas scored a 98th-minute equaliser as Bournemouth came from behind twice to earn a point in an astonishing game at Vitality Stadium.

Everton looked set for victory when goals from Ramiro Funes Mori and Romelu Lukaku put them 2-0 up at half-time.

Adam Smith rifled in a sizzling strike from 25 yards and Stanislas converted Joshua King's cut-back to make it 2-2.

Ross Barkley swept a shot in on the turn in the 95th minute but Bournemouth responded through Stanislas's header.

Only five minutes of added time had been signalled, but in truth few could begrudge Bournemouth their last-gasp equaliser after a hugely spirited second-half display.

They remain in the relegation zone but move up one place to 18th, while Everton remain seventh after twice squandering winning positions.

Sunderland 2-0 Stoke City

Sunderland moved out of the Premier League’s bottom three for the first time this season after beating Stoke City 2-0 at the Stadium of the Light.

The Potters had held firm despite Ryan Shawcross being sent off but Patrick van Aanholt opened the scoring for the Black Cats with less than eight minutes remaining, before young forward Duncan Watmore secured all 3points for Sunderland moments later.

Shawcross was dismissed for a second yellow after a foul on Watmore, who replaced the injured Jermain Defoe.

Stoke, who went closest through Jonathan Walters, slip to 12th.

Manchester city 3-1 Southampton

Manchester City came through a torrid spell to beat Southampton 3-1 at the Etihad and win for the first time in four games.

Early goals from Kevin De Bruyne (9) and Fabian Delph (20) seemed to have the points sewn up inside 20 minutes, but Shane Long (49) replied and Saints were close to an equaliser during a long period of dominance.

Aleksandar Kolarov's sweet strike in the 69th minute killed the visitors' momentum though, ending their unbeaten away record and sending City top of the Premier League as Leicester and Manchester United settled for a draw.

Aston Villa 2-3 Watford

Watford condemned bottom club Aston Villa to their 11th defeat in 14 Premier League games.

Odion Ighalo poked home to give the visitors the lead, but Micah Richards' header levelled it before half-time.

The Hornets lost goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to a head injury, but Alan Hutton's own goal and Troy Deeney's bullet header put them in control.

Jordan Ayew's shot found the corner to give Villa hope but they could not equalise in 10 minutes of injury time.

The result means Aston Villa, on five points, have equalled the league record for the lowest points tally after 14 matches of a season.

And no Premier League team has ever avoided relegation having accumulated five points or fewer after 13 games.

Watford, meanwhile, climb to 11th, nine points above the relegation zone and five off the European places.

Crystal Palace 5-1 Newcastle

Alan Pardew enjoyed victory against his old club as Crystal Palace came from a goal down to trounce Newcastle.

Striker Papiss Cisse opened the scoring for the visitors with a glancing free header from close range on 10 minutes.

But Palace hit back quickly with two goals in three minutes through James McArthur's deflected effort and Yannick Bolasie's lashed finish.

Wilfried Zaha volleyed a third with Bolasie and McArthur strikes left Newcastle in the bottom three.

Palace move up to sixth after a devastating display in which they could have won by more.

Jason Puncheon and Joel Ward both had efforts saved by Rob Elliot - the goalkeeper could do nothing about the five he did concede though.

Leicester city 1-1 Manchester United

Jamie Vardy scored for a record-breaking 11th consecutive Premier League game as Leicester City and Manchester United drew 1-1 on Saturday Night Football.

Vardy's unerring 24th-minute strike, at the end of a counter attack synonymous with the Foxes this season, sealed his place in the record books, surpassing Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 10 straight games.

Bastian Schweinsteiger's first Manchester United goal hauled the Reds level in first-half stoppage time and stifled a Leicester side who struggled to create chances after the interval.

United posed the greatest threat in the second half but they failed to find a way through as both sides settled for a point.

The results leaves Leicester and United second and third in the Premier League respectively, while Manchester City remain top after their victory against Southampton.

 

 Sunday

Norwich 1-1 Arsenal

Arsenal made it 3 PL games without a win as they missed the chance to draw level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table after Lewis Grabban's equaliser earned a point for Norwich.

The Gunners were gifted the lead when John Ruddy's poor clearance allowed Alexis Sanchez to set up Mesut Ozil.

But the visitors were pegged back by Grabban, who received Robbie Brady's defence-splitting pass and held off the challenge of Gabriel to fire in.

Injuries to Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez deepened Arsenal's woes.

Centre-back Koscielny was forced off in the first half with a hip injury, while forward Sanchez hobbled off after the interval with an apparent hamstring problem.

The Gunners are now two points off the lead in fourth and manager Arsene Wenger may come under renewed pressure to bolster his squad in January to sustain their title challenge.

Tottenhan 0-0 Chelsea

Tottenham extended their unbeaten run but missed the chance to go fourth with a goalless draw against Chelsea.

Chelsea's Asmir Begovic was the busier goalkeeper in the first half, keeping out Son Heung-min's header and Mousa Dembele's low drive.

Playing up front, Eden Hazard forced Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris into a low, reflex save from a superb volley - their only shot on target.

The point saw Chelsea move up a place to 14th on 15points, a whopping 14points off the top spot.

 

Liverpool 1-0 Swansea

Jurgen Klopp picked up his first league win at Anfield as James Milner's second-half penalty gave Liverpool the points in a stale game against Swansea.

Milner converted after Swans full-back Neil Taylor was penalised for handball.

Liverpool - so impressive in their win at Manchester City last week - were flat for large periods but did see captain Jordan Henderson return from injury as a substitute.

Swansea have now won just once in 10 league games since August, and Garry Monk's side failed to record a single effort on target in 90 minutes and face the top two in Leicester and Manchester City in their next two games.

West Ham 1-1 West Bromwich

Mauro Zarate scored a stunning free-kick as West Ham drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion at Upton Park.

Winston Reid diverted Rickie Lambert's strike into his own net early in the second half to level the scores, and despite plenty of chances for both sides, neither could find the winner as the points were shared.

West Ham stay eighth after the weekend's fixtures, but have gone above Everton, while West Brom stay in 13th, one point behind Stoke and Watford.
