Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 10 points with wins over Tottenham and Everton.
Ilkay Gundogan scored twice as Pep Guardiola’s Man City punished Jose Mourinho’s error-strewn Spurs to lay down a huge title marker at the weekend.
Gameweek 24 kicked off on Saturday lunchtime with a cracking fixture as Leicester City fought back from a goal down to beat champions Liverpool 3-1 with three late goals at the King Power Stadium.
Crystal Palace then slumped 3-0 at home to Burnley before City’s win against Spurs, while Brighton and Aston Villa saw out a goalless draw to close out the day.
Sunday’s games began with Wolves beating Southampton at lunchtime before West Brom held Man United to a 1-1 draw. Arsenal then beat Leeds 4-2, and Everton was stunned as a struggling Fulham won 2-0 at Goodison Park.
There were two London clubs in action on Monday night as West Ham beat Sheffield United 3-0 and Thomas Tuchel kept his strong start at Chelsea going with a 2-0 success over Newcastle.
Then in Wednesday’s two rescheduled matches, Fulham was held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor and Manchester City made it 17 successive wins across all competitions with a 3-1 triumph over Everton on Merseyside, cites Evening Standard.

Carlo Ancelotti drilled Everton to defend, frustrate and counter Manchester City and in keeping with their previous 16 assignments the Premier League leaders dismissed the challenge with contemptuous ease.
City cruised 10 points clear at the summit with another exhibition of their vast superiority. There is no title race at present. It is a procession.
Bernardo Silva’s goal, their third in a convincing victory, encapsulated the quality and confidence oozing through the City ranks. An incisive one-touch move involving Rodri, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus allowed the Portugal international to round Michael Keane before driving low through Jordan Pickford’s despairing dive.
City were a blur of movement and penetration in that moment, Everton statuesque en route to a third home league defeat in succession.
It was a reflection of the entire contest, City completing 753 passes to the hosts’ 306 and the Everton player who made the most was their goalkeeper with 44. It was also a goal that sealed a 12th successive league win and 17th consecutive win in all competitions for City, plus a little slice of history. They have become the first team in top-flight history to win their opening 10 matches in a calendar year, according to theguardian.
