Lewis Dunk was credited with the own goal, as the Gulls’ game effort leaves them in ninth.

2nd placed United now has 29 points, four back of Man City.   Brighton & Hove Albion are 9th with 16 points.

Crystal Palace 2 - 1 Stoke City

Ruben Loftus-Cheek canceled out Xherdan Shaqiri‘s first half goal within moments.

Palace now has eight points and can see safety for the first time this season. Stoke sits 15th.

Newcastle United 0 - 3 Watford

Marco Silva‘s Watford posted an impressive and complete 3-0 win over Newcastle United at St. James Park.

Will Hughes and Andre Gray scored for Watford, and Newcastle conceded an own goal off back DeAndre Yedlin.

The Hornets sit 8th with 21 points, while the Magpies four points above the drop zone.It’s the fourth-straight defeat for Newcastle United, who looked starved for strike options.

Swansea City 0 - 0 AFC Bournemouth

Swansea City and Bournemouth drew 0-0 at the Liberty Stadium with both teams huffing and puffing in the chilly conditions in South Wales.

Wilfried Bony had a goal disallowed in the first half for Swansea and Bournemouth went close on multiple occasions in a scrappy, hard-fought encounter.

Despite the point Swansea are just one point above last-place Crystal Palace, while Bournemouth are unbeaten in three and rise to 12th.
