Arsenal still have to wait for a liberating blow in the Premier League, but showed great morale in the London derby at Chelsea. Manager Mikel Arteta’s team recorded a 2-2 (0-1) victory, but has won only one of its last eight league games. The Gunners, with Mesut Zil, Bernd Leno and Shkodran Mustafi at the start, are 10th in the standings.

Earlier, defending champions Manchester City had at least temporarily narrowed their long gap to league leaders Liverpool. Manager Pep Guardiola’s side won 1-0 (0-0) at Sheffield United thanks to a goal from Sergio Agaero.

Jurgen Klopp joins Champions League winner Liverpool, who have a 13-point lead and two games less, at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday.

Former Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhàtl won 2-0 with Southampton at Crystal Palace and continues to move further and further away from the table. After their third win in their last four games, Southampton are eight points off relegation.

Former Bavarian coach Carlo Ancelotti has scored an infallible win for Everton. Against Newcastle United, his team led 2-0 until the fourth minute of extra time before Florian Lejeune scored twice for the visitors in less than 102 seconds.

In London, Jorginho scored to make it 1-0 for the hosts in the 28th minute. Earlier, Mustafi had played an accidental back pass to Leno, who was managed by Tammy Abraham. David Luiz fouled his opponent into the penalty area in a subsequent save and even saw the red card.

After the break, Arsenal, who had been dominated for long periods, took advantage of a deadlock when Gabriel Martinelli completed a 70-metre solo to make it 1-1.

Cesar Azpilicueta (84′) then put the hosts back on the winning road before Hector Bellerin equalised three minutes later.
