Wednesday’s Premier League round-up

The Premier League leaders Manchester City pulled apart Swansea on Wednesday to extend their record for successive top-flight victories to 15.

A David Silva double and goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero gave Manchester City a 4-0 win at bottom club Swansea, as Pep Guardiola’s side extended their record-breaking winning streak.

The only points dropped by Pep Guardiola’s side this season were in a 1-1 draw against Everton way back on 21 August.

Manchester United bounced back from Sunday’s derby defeat by their title rivals with a 1-0 success over Bournemouth.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku scored the winner in the first half, heading in to the top corner from Juan Mata’s cross towards the six-yard box. Romelu Lukaku scored his second goal in his last 10 league games.

Sam Allardyce continued his undefeated start as Everton manager with Wayne Rooney’s tap-in enough to beat Newcastle.

Wayne Rooney’s solitary close-range goal was enough for the Toffees to win their first Premier League away game since January, and extended the hosts’ winless streak to eight games. Newcastle sits a point above the relegation zone with 15 points.

And Leicester boss Claude Puel enjoyed a happy return to his former club Southampton as his side recorded a fourth successive league win with a resounding 4-1 victory at St Mary’s.

Tottenham moved back into the Premier League top four as goals from Serge Aurier and the in-form Son Heung-min helped them to victory over a stubborn Brighton at Wembley. Tottenham moved up to fourth place after Liverpool were held 0-0 at Anfield by West Brom.

West Ham remain in the relegation zone – level on points with 17th-placed Albion despite a goalless draw against Arsenal. The Gunners are without a Premier League win in three games and are now down to seventh in the table as West Ham continued their revival under new manager David  Moyes.
