Arsenal climbed above Leicester to go top of the table as they saw off Bournemouth 2-0 to bounce back from their 4-0 Boxing Day loss at Southampton.
Mesut Ozil’s 16th Premier League assist of the season saw Gabriel Paulista powerfully head home from the Germany international’s corner on 27 minutes.
Ozil then got his name on the scoresheet after playing a one-two with Olivier Giroud and then nudging the ball past goalkeeper Artur Boruc, putting the Gunners above Leicester who play Manchester City on Tuesday.
Manchester United put in an improved display against Chelsea but Louis van Gaal’s side were unable to find the back of the net in a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.
The draw ended United’s four-game losing streak in all competitions, though Van Gaal’s side are still without a win since Nov. 21, a span of eight games — six in the Premier League and two in the Champions League.
A late goal from Son Heung-Min earned Tottenham Hotspur a 2-1 win over 10-man Watford to lift the club to third in the Premier League table.
Spurs went in front on 17 minutes following a mix-up in midfield that allowed Erik Lamela to pounce and slip the ball beyond goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.
Odion Ighalo scored for a sixth top-flight game in a row to make it 1-1, showing good strength before prodding the ball past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Watford were reduced to 10 men on 62 minutes after a high challenge by Nathan Ake on Lamela.
Tottenham clinched all three points when Son backheeled through Gomes’ legs with a minute of normal time remaining.
