Premier League : United draw with Arsenal, Wolves upset Chelsea

Agency, 6 December :  Arsenal stretched their unbeaten run to 20 games, but failed to take advantage of two gifts from the hosts as United’s winless run in the Premier League extended to four matches.

Amid an underperforming side this season, goalkeeper David de Gea has remained in almost impeccable form, but the Spaniard spilled Shkodran Mustafi’s header over the line to hand Arsenal the lead 26 minutes in.

Four minutes later the hosts levelled when Anthony Martial turned home Ander Herrera’s cross after Bernd Leno saved Marcos Rojo’s cross.

Both second-half goals came in a crazy minute as firstly Rojo turned the ball off Alexandre Lacazette and into the United net in his attempts to make a last-ditch tackle.

Arsenal were barely done celebrating when the ball was in the net at the other end as a misunderstanding between Sead Kolasinac and Leno allowed Jesse Lingard to nip in and equalise.

Jota strike earns Wolves win over Chelsea

Wolverhampton Wanderers came from behind to earn a 2-1 victory against Chelsea at Molineux.

Chelsea opened the scoring on 18 minutes when an effort from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, making his first Premier League start of the season, went in via the head of Conor Coady.

Wolves were level on 59 minutes when a through-ball from Morgan Gibbs-White, on his first PL start, found Raul Jimenez and he drilled a powerful shot between the legs of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Four minutes later, Wolves were 2-1 ahead. Joao Moutinho played in Matt Doherty and he slid the ball across goal to leave Diogo Jota with a simple finish.

A first victory since October means Wolves are 12th with 19 points, while Chelsea are down to fourth on 31 points.

Liverpool keep pressure on City with comeback

Liverpool came back from a goal down to defeat Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor and stay two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Ashley Barnes and Phil Bardsley both had chances for Burnley in a goalless first half, while efforts from Naby Keita and James Milner were blocked for Liverpool.

Jack Cork put Burnley ahead with a tap-in after Liverpool failed to clear a corner nine minutes after half-time. But Milner equalised eight minutes later with a low strike from outside the penalty area after good work by Divock Origi.

Roberto Firmino, who was a substitute along with Mohamed Salah, put Liverpool in front on 69 minutes with Virgil van Dijk providing the assist, before Xherdan Shaqiri added a third from Salah’s pass in stoppage-time.

Liverpool are in second on 39 points, while Burnley remain 19th on nine points.
