PL Round-Up: Chelsea & Spurs win as City & Utd are held

It is as you were at the top of the Premier League table after Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur both won.

Leaders Chelsea secured a 3-0 win at Everton, and then Spurs moved back to within four points of them after a 2-0 win over rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea fought hard for their win and did not take the lead until after an hour when Pedro struck from long-range.

Gary Cahill and Willian sealed the win for Antonio Conte’s men, who are closing in on the title and are 1/16 to take the title.

Spurs are 8/1 for the title after their 2-0 win over Arsenal – a result which means they will finish above their North London neighbours for the first time since 1995.

Tottenham were by the far the better side in the first-half but could not find a breakthrough but the opening goal arrived not long into the second-half when Dele Alli scored his 21st goal of the season.

Harry Kane added a second just over two-minutes later to seal the win.

Arsenal remain six points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City having played one game fewer and are now 6/1 to make the top-four.

Brazilian starlet Gabriel Jesus rescued Manchester City with a late equaliser at Middlesbrough.

Second from bottom Boro looked to be heading for a famous victory until Jesus headed home a Sergio Aguero cross just five-minutes from time.

Former City striker Alvaro Negredo put Boro ahead in the first-half before City levelled in controversial fashion as they were awarded a hotly disputed penalty when Leroy Sane went down after a Marten de Roon challenge but contact looked minimal.

Aguero stepped up to convert but Boro were back ahead on 77 minutes when Calum Chambers poked home from close range.

But just when the home side looked set to give their survival hopes a huge boost, but then Jesus was on hand to head home for Pep Guardiola’s men.

City move level on points with Liverpool in third – who play on Monday – whilst Boro are six-points off safety.

United also failed to win as Swansea claimed a 1-1 draw.

Captain Wayne Rooney had put the home side ahead on the stroke of half-time from the penalty spot after Marcus Rashford went down, although it looked a generous award.

Swansea claimed a share of the spoils when Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a brilliant free-kick ten-minutes from the end. Swansea, who remain third bottom, are now two points off Hull City and safety.
