Arsenal went top of the Premier League thanks to a comeback win against Stoke at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win against Stoke at the Emirates Stadium Saturday. The Gunners lead could well be short-lived with Chelsea playing at home against West Brom Sunday. The Blues will reclaim top spot with a draw or a win.
In the day’s late kickoff, Leicester stunned Manchester City, scoring three goals in the first 20 minutes of the match and eventually running out 4-2 winners. The win moved Leicester up to 14th, four points clear of the drop, while City remain fourth, and could drop down to fifth if Tottenham win Sunday.
The other big winners of the day were Swansea, who moved up to 17th with a 3-0 win against Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium, and Burnley, who went 13th after beating Bournemouth 3-2 at home. The Black Cats replace Swansea in 20th.
That Swans win moved West Ham, who play Sunday, down to 18th. Hull’s 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace at the KCOM Stadium left them in 19th place.
In the early kickoff, Watford beat Everton to move up to seventh. The Toffees, whose form has been abysmal after a good start to the season, are down in ninth.
Here’s the full Premier League table after six Saturday games:
The Sunday fixtures see Chelsea host West Brom, Southampton host Middlesbrough, Manchester United host Tottenham and Liverpool host West Ham.
The biggest game of the four is the one at Old Trafford, where Manchester United desperately need a win to maintain any chance of a top four finish. Jose Mourinho’s side won convincingly in the Europa League midweek, but will be tested by a Tottenham side high on confidence after a 5-0 win against Swansea last weekend.
