Premier League Matchday 13 Roundup: London Derby Win Sees Chelsea Stay Top

In Premier League matchday 13, Burnley nearly pick up a victory over Manchester City at Turf Moor, but two goals from Aguero saw the Citizens grab all three points against a resilient team led by Sean Dyche.

Dean Marney gave Burnley the lead with a 14th minute strike outside the penalty area, his first Premier League goal in seven years, City’s equaliser then came in the 34th minute courtesy of none other than Sergio Aguero.

The prolific striker then scored the winner for Guardiola’s side thus taking his league tally up to 10 goals, right on par with Chelsea’s Diego Costa who failed to find the net as Chelsea retained their place at the Summit of the Premier League table.

Tottenham went 1-0 up in the 11th minute through Christian Eriksen before Pedro scored a sublime curler to put the scores level. Red-hot Victor Moses then bagged what proved to be the winner in the 52nd as Chelsea remained in pole position.

Gareth McAuley gave West Brom the lead as the Baggies travelled away to the KC Stadium. Tony Pulis’ side were ahead in the first-half and looked good value for their lead. The second-half, though, saw Micheal Dawson score the equaliser Hull City.

The result brought Mike Phelan’s men closer to moving out of the bottom three as they’re currently level on points with Crystal Palace, Hull are only in the dropzone due to their inferior goal difference.

Leicester City managed to salvage a draw against Middlesbrough, but they did so with the help of two penalties courtesy of Riyad Mahrez and his countryman, Slimani.

Alvaro Negredo bagged his first brace of the season for Middlesbrough in the tie – the Spanish striker opened the scoring in the 13th minute before Mahrez converted a spot-kick in the 34th minute.

Negredo’s second goal came in the 72nd minute before Slimani managed to put the ball past Victor Valdes in the 90th minute.

Sunderland dropped down to 20th in the league standings following a 2-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

The Reds struggled to put the ball in the back of the net in the early stages of the encounter, but late strikes from Divock Origi and James Milner secured the three points for Klopp’s side. A potentially serious injury to Coutinho overshadowed events at Anfield though.

The pick of games this weekend came at the Liberty Stadium as Swansea City picked up an emphatic 5-4 win over Crystal Palace. Wilfried Zaha gave opened the scoring before Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a stunning freekick in the 36th minute.

It was raining goals in the second half as two braces from Leroy Fer and Fernando Llorente saw Swansea pick up all three points despite Benteke seemingly leading the Eagles to victory as he scored his second goal of the game in the 84th minute.

Elsewhere, Stoke City secured a slender 1-0 win away at Watford thanks to an own goal from Gomes which came about as Charlie Adam attempted to score a header while Southampton also one 1-0 against Everton as Ronald Koeman made a return to the St Mary’s Stadium.

A brace from Sanchez and a goal from Theo Walcott saw Arsenal win 3-1 at the Emirates against Bournemouth. Bournemouth's lone goal came via the penalty spot as Callum Wilson sent Cech the wrong way to score the opener, which was then cancelled out by three Arsenal goals.

Manchester United managed their fourth consecutive home draw in the Premier League this season as they were unable to break West Ham down in a manner they would’ve liked.
