It was busy day of Premier League action, with eight games in the English top flight.

In the first game of the day, two late goals for Arsenal got them a 4-2 win over Aston Villa in the 12.30pm kick-off.

The Gunners return to the top of the table, taking the spot of Manchester City, who drew with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

City looked to be heading back to the summit thanks to Bernardo Silva's first half strike but conceded six minutes from time.


Boss Pep Guardiola said his side didn't do too much wrong.

At Goodison Park, Everton emerged 1-0 victors over Leeds; Seamus Coleman's right footed shot from a difficult angle on the right to the centre of the goal was the difference.

Elsewhere, it ended Brentford 1-1 Crystal Palace, Brighton 0-1 Fulham, Chelsea 0-1 Southampton, and Wolves 0-1 Bournemouth at Molineux.

In the final game of the day, goals from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo helped Liverpool see off Newcastle United at St James's Park. Goalkeeper Nick Pope was sent off in the first half.



League of Ireland champions Shamrock Rovers were held to a draw by Sligo Rovers. The Hoops went ahead through Graham Burke, in the 17th minute, but an injury time equaliser from Lukas Browning ensured the spoils were shared.


In the United Rugby Championship, Connacht survived a late fightback from Zebre to clinch a 54-37 victory in Italy.
