Manchester City and Arsenal enjoy big wins as Everton salvage a morale-boosting point

Strikes from Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe, quickly followed by Chelsea’s Timo Werner and Cesar Azpilicueta equaliser summed up an exciting first-half at Stamford Bridge.

Eddie Nketiah secured his brace in the second half and Bukayo Saka added a late penalty to seal a massive 4-2 win for The Gunners.

£98million striker Romelu Lukaku again failed to score despite not having scored a Premier League goal for Chelsea since late December.

The Gunners bounced back from three consecutive defeats in style while ending their goal-shy form to move level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham after 32 games played each.

Arsenal face tough tests against Manchester United and West Ham in their next two matches ahead of a visit to Spurs next month, but Arteta reckons their win at Chelsea can play a significant role in their important fixtures to come.

Meanwhile,Manchester City reclaimed the Premier League top spot after a vital 3-0 victory against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Etihad Stadium, courtesy of second half goals from Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva.

The Citizens have now moved a point above rivals Liverpool, who beat United 4-0 on Tuesday.

Brighton had won their last two Premier League fixtures, against Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Seagulls performed well but will be disappointed at the score line and will call it bad luck as both the hosts first two goals took deflections.

City face Watford, Leeds and Newcastle next in the Premier League, without forgetting the huge Champions League semi-final tie against Real Madrid.
