Gabriel Jesus scored twice as Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League with victory over Everton at Etihad Stadium.

Crystal Palace secured their first Premier League victory without Wilfried Zaha in over two years thanks to captain Luka Milivojevic's superb strike in a scrappy win against Leicester at Selhurst Park.

Huddersfield manager David Wagner said his side "have to believe" after Newcastle inflicted a fourth successive Premier League defeat on the Terriers.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said it was important to follow up their dramatic qualification for the Champions League last 16 in midweek with victory against Burnley in the league.

Watford manager Javi Gracia said his side had been taught a "good lesson" after they held off a late Cardiff comeback to seal their first Premier League win since October.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said his side must show "big character" after a sixth defeat in seven games saw opponents Wolves climb above them into seventh.

Eden Hazard scored one and assisted another as Chelsea held on to beat Brighton at the Amex Stadium.

Charlie Austin's 85th-minute header clinched victory for Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl on his home debut and ended Arsenal's 22-match unbeaten run.

Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench to inspire a Liverpool victory over a lacklustre Manchester United that takes them back to the top of the Premier League.
