t was a day of upsets, own goals and sweet volleys in the Premier League, as Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the table to seven points before Manchester City play on Monday.

Southampton, too, got themselves a priceless win, as they beat Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, despite playing more than half the game with ten men.

Here are all the results from another riveting Premier League matchday.

West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

A drab Arsenal side were well-beaten by a far more superior, hungrier West Ham side. The Gunners chose to put a fit-again Hector Bellerin on the bench, along with Lucas Torreira and Aaron Ramsey while Mesut Ozil didn't even make the bench.

Unai Emery was made to pay for that as Declan Rice's second-half goal off Samir Nasri's lay-off gave the Hammers a well-deserved victory.

Brighton & Hove Albion 0-1 Liverpool

Liverpool weren't exactly at their best, but notched up yet another win as they bounced back from two straight defeats at the start of the year. Mo Salah's penalty was enough for the Reds to win, on a day when they weren't required to be at their best.

This was Liverpool's 13th league clean-sheet of the season, and their 16th straight win in the league this season against non-top 5 opposition.

Leicester City 1-2 Southampton

Leicester were unable to bounce back from their FA Cup humbling at the hands of Newport, as Ralph Hassenhuttl's Southampton managed to eke out a 2-1 win, despite the sending off of Yan Valery in the first-half.

The Saints went ahead through a James Ward-Prowse penalty, before Shane Long put them two to the good, before the break. Wilfred Ndidi pulled one back for the Foxes but it was not to be for Leicester, as Southampton hauled themselves off the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Southampton

Craig Cathcart. Yes, that is the summary of the game. Oh, maybe a little Tom Cleverley too. Cathcart put through his own net, to give Palace the lead. He then put the ball at the back of the right net to pull his side level.

Then, Tom Cleverley stepped up. Six minutes after being sent on, he connected sweetly with a right-footed volley inside the box, and sent it to the top-right corner, to get Watford another very creditable away win.

Burnley 2-1 Fulham

When things aren't going your way, they really aren't going your way. Burnley made it just one win in nine games for Claudio Ranieri at Fulham, as they won at Turf Moor, thanks to two own-goals, one from Joe Bryan and the other from Dennis Odoi.

That was after Fulham went ahead through a magical Andre Schurrle volley, as early as the second minute.

Cardiff City 0-0 Huddersfield

Cardiff didn't create too much. Huddersfield didn't create too much. Cardiff earned a priceless point, Huddersfield snapped a run of eight straight league defeats, but a point doesn't do them much good. They were first awarded, and then denied a penalty when Joe Bennet and Florent Hadergjonaj came together, but in the end, it wasn't to be.

Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle

David Luiz's superb pass to Pedro set up the Spaniard for a superb dink over Martin Dubravka, but Newcastle levelled when Ciaran Clark headed a Matt Ritchie corner into the net.

Chelsea's winner was a sumptuous effort from Willian, who received the ball on the left flank, and drove into the box, before a superb curling shot gave Dubravka no chance.
