Premier League action
The final round of English top-flight fixtures of the decade took place this weekend.
Yesterday’s matchups saw Manchester United pick up an impressive 2-0 win at Burnley, Tottenham fight back to notch a point at Norwich, and Watford’s survival hopes given a boost courtesy of a 3-0 drubbing of Aston Villa.
Elsewhere, Everton made it 2 wins from 2 under Carlo Ancelotti, Leicester got back on track with a victory at West Ham, Brighton got the better of struggling Bournemouth, and Southampton and Crystal Palace played out a 1-1 draw.
This was followed by a trio of further fixtures today.

And the weekend’s final matchup saw a Kevin De Bruyne-inspired Manchester City get the better of Sheffield United at the Etihad.
