EPL Wrap 09-11-19: Leicester, Chelsea win while Tottenham drop more points

Leicester and Chelsea both won in the Premier League on Saturday as they maintained their challenge for a top-four finish, while Tottenham dropped more points.

Leicester moved into second on goal difference, five points behind Liverpool, with a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the late game. Jamie Vardy and James Maddison scored as the Foxes recorded a fourth consecutive league win.

Chelsea are third after they beat Crystal Palace 2-0 – their sixth successive league win – thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.

Spurs were held 1-1 at home by Sheffield United, meaning Mauricio Pochettino’s side have failed to win any of their past five league games.

Son Heung-min put Spurs in front but George Baldock equalised for the Blades, who are now fifth in the table.

Everton increased the pressure on Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl with a 2-1 victory at St Mary’s, as Tom Davies and Richarlison scored either side of Danny Ings’ equaliser.

The Saints, who stay 19th, were booed off at full-time as some home fans threw their scarves on to the pitch.

West Ham’s winless run extended to seven games in all competitions as they were beaten 3-0 at Burnley, and they are just two places above the relegation zone.

Newcastle are up to 11th after coming from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 through goals from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark.
