Another weekend of Premier League matches has come and gone with significant developments at both ends of the table.

Four matches took place on the traditional Saturday afternoon kick-off as Chelsea's stuttering form continued after letting slip a two-goal lead to draw at home against Wolves, while Watford were relegated after losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace. Aston Villa pushed Burnley back towards the relegation zone with a 3-1 win at Turf Moor, and Brentford cruised past Southampton 3-0.

In Saturday's later games, Brighton & Hove Albion produced their first home win of 2022 by thrashing Manchester United 4-0, before Tottenham held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

On Sunday, Arsenal took charge of their top four destiny by beating Leeds United 2-1 at the Emirates to send Jesse Marsch's team into the bottom three, while Everton secured their first away win since August with a 2-1 victory at Leicester City to move out of the drop zone. At the same time, West Ham bounced back from their Europa League semi-final disappointment with a comfortable 4-0 win at relegated Norwich City.

In the final match of the weekend, defending champions Manchester City took control of the title race after outclassing Newcastle United 5-0 to move three points clear.
