A round-up of the 2pm kick-offs in the Premier League:
Manchester United 0 – 0 Burnley
Jose Mourinho watched his side fail to win for a fourth successive league game after they drew a blank in a frustrating draw at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician watched the second half from the stands after referee Mark Clattenburg dismissed a late first half penalty appeal from the United manager.
Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton produced a stunning performance to deny the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata, before Ander Herrera was sent off for a second bookable offence midway through the second half.
The draw means the Red Devils drop to eighth place in the table and eight points adrift of league leaders Manchester City.
West Bromwich Albion 0 – 4 Manchester City
Pep Guardiola ended his six game winless streak with a comprehensive victory over the Baggies at The Hawthorns.
Sergio Aguero scored two goals for the Citizens as he marked his return to the starting line-up with an impressive brace. The Argentinean striker put the visitors ahead after being put through byIlkay Gundogan before adding a second with a blistering strike from outside of the area.
Gundogan secured the result with two strikes of his own in the second half as City also moved to the top of the scoring charts – notching their 24th league goal of the season.
The result sees City reclaim their place at the top of the table after Arsenal had temporarily taken first place by beating Sunderland 4-1 in the early kick-off.
Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 1 Leicester City
Spurs drew for a third consecutive Premier League game as the Foxes came from behind to secure a point at White Hart Lane.
Vincent Janssen opened the scoring for the hosts with a first half penalty after being fouled in the penalty area by Robert Huth. It was a first league goal for the Dutch striker but Claudio Ranieri’s side levelled the scores two minutes into the second half when Ahmed Musa slotted home Jamie Vardy’s cross.
The draw temporarily moves Spurs into the top four ahead of Chelsea but the Blues could reclaim their spot with a win away to Southampton on Sunday.
Middlesbrough 2 – 0 AFC Bournemouth
Boro won for the first time in eight league games as they swept aside the Cherries at the Riverside Stadium.
Gaston Ramirez gave the home side the lead just before half time after a fine individual solo run eventually saw the Uruguayan find the back of the net. And Stewart Downing made sure of the result when he poked home from close range after Alvaro Negredo nodded the ball down for his teammate.
Aitor Karanka’s side move up to 15th place in the table as a result of their first home league win of the season.
Watford 1 – 0 Hull City
The Hornets moved up to 7th place in the table after a late goal at Vicarage Road gifted Walter Mazzarri’s side all three points.
Michael Dawson was the unfortunate player to find the back of his own net after Troy Deeney’s deft touch left the defender helpless with the goal at his mercy.
The defeat marks a sixth straight league defeat for Mike Phelan’s side who currently occupy 18th place in the table.
