EPL Round-up: Man City & Arsenal See Wins; Saints Thrash Everton

Here's the roundup of today's English Premier League games....
 Huddersfield Town 1 - 2 Manchester City

Raheem Sterling won an equalising penalty and scored a funny winner as Manchester City stayed unbeaten with a 2-1 comeback win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.

The win restores City’s eight-point table advantage of Manchester United, while Town remains 11th with 15 points.

Sergio Aguero, who was the Man of the Match, scored the penalty, and Nicolas Otamendi’s own goal accounted for the one on Town’s side of the scoreboard.

Town’s Rajiv Van la Parra was sent off after the final whistle.

The victory also sets a new club record for City who have now won in 11 consecutive away matches in all competitions.

Burnley 0 - 1 Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez converted a silly stoppage time penalty to move Arsenal into the Top Four with a 1-0 win Burnley at Turf Moor, adding to its run of late performances versus the Clarets.

James Tarkowski shoved Aaron Ramsey in the back as the midfielder tried to run onto a 91st minute header in the box.

Arsenal leapfrogs Liverpool and Tottenham for fourth place, while Burnley stay seventh.

Southampton 4 - 1 Everton 

Charlie Austin‘s brace led Southampton’s riot, as Saints broke free in a 4-1 win over moribund Everton at St. Mary’s.

Dusan Tadic had a goal and an assist for Saints, and Steven Davis also scored.

It was Austin’s first brace since October 16, 2016, in a 3-1 Saints win over Burnley.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a wonderful goal for Everton, but the Toffees’ continued goal hemorrhage leaves it a beautiful footnote.

Southampton is now 10th with 16 points, while Everton is 16th (two points above the drop zone).
