EPL

Liverpool and United victorious

With Chelsea and table-topping Manchester City playing later in the week, Liverpool registered their second win in 48 hours after the Estonian popped up with his first league goal.

On the blue half of Merseyside, Manchester United climbed back up to second in the table after second-half goals by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard earned a 2-0 victory at Everton -- their first win in five games in all competitions.

EPL top four fight to go down to last day

City need a point from their final match to be absolutely sure of Champions League football after they beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 while fifth-placed Arsenal stayed in the hunt by beating relegated Sunderland 2-0.

Gabriel de Jesus, Kevin de Bruyne and Yaya Toure scored City's goals as they moved two points above Liverpool in third.

With a superior goal difference of five to that of Arsenal, who are three points behind, it would take a big turnaround to deny City.

Liverpool takes top spot in EPL

Sadio Mane scored twice and Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Giorginio Wijnaldum got the others as Liverpool moved one point above Chelsea.

Coutinho had already hit the woodwork before Mane got things rolling with the opener and Coutinho and Can made it 3-0 at halftime.

Roberto Firmino added a fourth in the second half before Mane got his second and though Daryl Janmaat grabbed a consolation, Wijnaldum scored the sixth to send them top.

Earlier, Arsenal missed the chance to go top when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham at the Emirates.

West Ham, Middlesborough record wins in EPL

Antonio rose highest at the back post to head in Gokhan Tore's cross and decide a game of few chances.

The goal came eight minutes after Bournemouth's Harry Arter was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Cherries goalkeeper Artur Boruc saved well from Enner Valencia in the first half, while Adrian denied Joshua King.

A club-record 56,977 supporters were in attendance as West Ham played their first league match at their new home, having left Upton Park at the end of last season.

United grab fifth in EPL

The game was hastily rearranged after the match at the weekend was abandoned due to a bomb scare and the first half was very low key in front of a sparse Old Trafford crowd.

The one moment of quality produced a fine goal, however, just before the interval when United's French forward Anthony Martial injected pace down the left and Rashford stepped over his cross to leave Rooney with a simple finish.

Arsenal kept out of EPL top spot by Chelsea

At the other end of the table Swansea City improved their prospects of avoiding relegation with a 2-1 win at Everton in new Italian head coach Francesco Guidolin's first match.

Arsenal's German defender Per Mertesacker was sent off after 18 minutes for denying a goalscoring opportunity to Diego Costa, who scored the only goal five minutes later from a cross by Branislav Ivanovic.

United, Arsenal record wins in EPL

The England and United skipper was perfectly placed to hook a powerful volley past keeper Simon Mignolet after 78 minutes when a header from Marouane Fellaini bounced off the crossbar.

Rooney has now scored in four successive games and took his Premier League tally to 176, more than any other player for one club, overtaking the previous record of 175 that Thierry Henry managed for Arsenal.
