Premier League Matchday 10 Review
No major upsets in Match Day 10 with all the top six winning, with the exception of Tottenham who were beaten 1-0 at Old Trafford.

At the bottom of the table Crystal Palace were able to smile after a late equaliser gave them a valuable point at home to West Ham, unfortunately both Everton and Bournemouth lost again.

Highest scoring game was West Brom v Man City which ended 2-3 to City while on the disciplinary front Ref Oliver dished out 8 yellows in the Watford clash with Stoke. Troy Deeney of Watford could also face retrospective action for a nasty clash with Joe Allen.

Matchday 10 table
Saturday 28th October 2017

Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham
Substitute Anthony Martial scored a late winner as Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0 on Saturday.

A game of few chances looked to be heading for a stalemate until Martial took advantage of a defensive lapse to latch onto Romelu Lukaku's flick-on and finish in the 81st minute.

Lukaku had headed against the post moments earlier while Dele Alli missed the best chance for Spurs, who were without injured top scorer Harry Kane, when he volleyed wide from close range.

The win is United's first in their last three Premier League games and keeps them in touch with leaders Manchester City.

For Spurs, it was another disappointing visit to Old Trafford, where they have now lost 21 of 26 Premier League matches, as they struggled to overcome the loss of Kane, not managing a shot on target in the second half.

Arsenal 2-1 Swansea
Arsenal came back from a goal behind at half-time to beat Swansea 2-1 in the Premier League at the Emirates on Saturday.

Despite having little possession in the first half, Swansea took the lead through Sam Clucas' neat finish (22) from Tammy Abraham's superb through ball.

Arsenal levelled through Sead Kolasinac after the break (51), before Aaron Ramsey completed the turnaround just seven minutes later with a guided left-footed effort from eight yards.

The result means Arsenal have won all five of their Premier League matches at the Emirates and go up to fourth, while Swansea are down in 17th.

Crystal Palace 2-2 West Ham
Wilfried Zaha gave Crystal Palace a morale-boosting point against West Ham as they came from behind to draw 2-2.

First-half strikes from Javier Hernandez (31) and Andre Ayew (43) were cancelled out by a Luka Milivojevic penalty (50) and Zaha's dramatic last-minute equaliser (90+7) in a fiery contest at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace pushed hard for an equaliser in the second half, but Joe Hart pulled off a string of superb saves before Zaha slotted home to secure Roy Hodgson's men a crucial draw with seconds left on the clock.

The result means Crystal Palace remain bottom on four points, while West Ham move up to 16th.

Liverpool 3-0 Huddersfield
Daniel Sturridge's 100th club career goal helped Liverpool return to winning ways in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Mohamed Salah saw his first-half penalty saved by Jonas Lossl (42) as a defensive Huddersfield side frustrated the hosts, who were without Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.

However, Sturridge capitalised on a Tommy Smith error (50) to steer Liverpool towards their first league victory since September.

Liverpool turned on the style as the Huddersfield defence opened up, and Roberto Firmino's header (58) and a superb Georginio Wijnaldum strike (75) ultimately put the game beyond the visitors.

Watford 0-1 Stoke
Stoke enjoyed their first Premier League away win of the season to ease the pressure on Mark Hughes as Darren Fletcher's sweetly-struck volley was enough to seal a 1-0 win over Watford.

Fletcher met Xherdan Shaqiri's corner with a controlled volley on his right foot after 16 minutes at Vicarage Road with the ball flying past the unsighted Heurelho Gomes via a slight deflection off Troy Deeney.

On an off day for Marco Silva's side, Watford failed to produce a single shot on target with Charlie Adam hitting the post deep into stoppage time as the hosts piled men forward in search of an equaliser.

West Brom 2-3 Manchester City
Manchester City continued their winning Premier League run on Saturday as they beat West Brom 3-2 at The Hawthorns to extend their lead to five points at the top of the table.

Pep Guardiola's side have won their last seven league matches, and they got off to another good start when they opened the scoring in the 10th minute as Leroy Sane slotted home.

Three minutes later, West Brom levelled through Jay Rodriguez (13), only to fall behind once again thanks to a fine Fernandinho strike (15). Raheem Sterling (64) added Man City's third just minutes after coming on as a substitute in the second half, before Matt Phillips (90+2) set up a nervy ending when he scored a second Baggies goal late on.

But West Brom could not find a late equaliser as their winless run extends to eight games in all competitions, while City are now five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea
Eden Hazard's first Premier League goal of the season secured a 1-0 win for Chelsea against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The visitors went close several times in the first half before Hazard flashed a near-post finish past Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic on 51 minutes.

Bournemouth created little but their best opening came when substitute Jordon Ibe saw his left-footed effort deflect narrowly over Thibaut Courtois' crossbar.

The result means Chelsea sit fourth, nine points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, while Bournemouth remain 19th having taken just seven points from their opening 10 games.

Brighton 1-1 Southampton
Glenn Murray was on target again as Brighton came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Southampton in Sunday's south-coast affair at the Amex.

Steven Davis had nodded the visitors in front after just seven minutes but Murray - who scored his first goals of the season in last week's win over West Ham - restored parity with a header of his own in the 52nd minute.

A tight contest failed to yield a winner but both sides remain in the comfort of mid-table after a point that felt fair in their first top-flight meeting since 1983.

Leicester 2-0 Everton
Claude Puel started life at Leicester with a 2-0 win over Everton, with the visitors remaining marooned in the relegation zone.

With David Unsworth in caretaker charge following the sacking of Ronald Koeman, Everton were punished by Leicester's pace on the break as Jamie Vardy (18) and a heavily deflected Demarai Gray effort off Jonjoe Kenny (28) gave them an early advantage.

Puel, who was appointed as Leicester's third manager of 2017 on Wednesday, had to watch his side defend deep for the majority of the second period - but the visitors lacked the imagination or variation in their play to trouble the scorers.

This latest defeat leaves Everton in the relegation zone having taken just eight points from their opening 10 games, while Leicester climbed to 11th.

Burnley vrs Newcastle - 20.00 - Sky
Chris Wood and Sam Vokes are injury doubts for Burnley as they host Newcastle on Monday Evening

Wood, who was withdrawn at Manchester City last weekend with a hamstring injury, is described as "touch and go" by manager Sean Dyche, who added it is "promising" that Vokes will return from the abdominal strain that kept him out at the Etihad Stadium.

The New Zealand international is the top scorer for Burnley this season with four goals and he could be crucial if passed fit, with the Clarets look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after a draw and loss in their last two games.

Newcastle are aiming to extend their own unbeaten league run with two draws and a win in their recent matches, although they are winless in their last four away visits to Turf Moor in league competition, losing three and drawing one.
