Manchester City kept the pressure on Arsenal in the Premier League title race with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Goals from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling were enough to secure the three points for Pep Guardiola’s side, who remain just two points behind the Gunners in the table.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield, with Wilfried Zaha’s equaliser cancelling out Sadio Mane’s opener.
The result means that Liverpool remain in fourth place, four points behind Arsenal, while Palace remain in the bottom half of the table.
For Manchester City, the win was a welcome boost after a disappointing draw against West Bromwich Albion last week.
Aguero opened the scoring for City in the first half, before Sterling doubled their lead shortly after the break.
Bournemouth pulled one back late on through Joshua King, but it was too little too late for the visitors, who remain in the relegation zone.
The result means that City remain in the hunt for the title, and they will be hoping to close the gap on Arsenal when they face West Ham United next weekend.
For Liverpool, the draw was a frustrating result, as they had looked on course for a win after Mane’s opener.
However, Zaha’s equaliser ensured that the points were shared, and the Reds remain in fourth place, four points behind Arsenal.
The result also means that Palace remain in the bottom half of the table, but they will be hoping to move up the table with a win over Leicester City next weekend.
