Liverpool remain top of the Premier League table after Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk's doubles helped them to a 5-0 win against Watford.

Divock Origi added a second-half third in between Mane and Van Dijk's goals.

Manchester City kept pace at the top after a 1-0 win at West Ham. Sergio Aguero's 59th minute penalty made the difference as City stay a point behind Liverpool.

Elsewhere, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri earned a timely boost as his side beat Tottenham 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Pedro and Kieran Trippier's own goal made the difference for the Blues.

The Italian dropped goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in favour of Willy Caballero in the wake of the antics in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.

Spurs stay third but Arsenal have closed the gap to them down to four points. The Gunners thrashed Bournemouth 5-1 at the Emirates. Significantly that comes just before the North London Derby.

Mesut Ozil opened the scoring after just four minutes, before Henrik Mkhitaryan, Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette stretched that gap further.

Lys Mousset scored the only goal for Bournemouth.

Manchester United are a point behind Arsenal in fifth are a 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

Romelu Lukaku got United off the mark with two second half goals. Joel Ward pulled one back for Palace before Ashley Young made sure of the points for United.

Southampton also gave their survival hopes a boost with a 2-0 win over beleaguered Fulham.

Oriol Romeu and James Ward-Prowse got the goals for the Saints that lift them above Cardiff and out of the relegation zone.
