Premier League leaders Chelsea got back to winning ways on Wednesday night by seeing off Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s men needed a response following their surprise loss against Crystal Palace on Saturday, and a brace from Eden Hazard either side of a Sergio Aguero strike sealed the three points for the Blues.

They remain seven points clear at the top after second place Tottenham left it very late to beat struggling Swansea 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium.

Paul Clement’s Swans led for much of the encounter, only for goals from Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, and Christian Eriksen in the final few minutes to secure Spurs a much-needed victory.

Liverpool remain third despite only managing a 2-2 draw at home to Bournemouth, with Josh King’s late effort earning Eddie Howe’s side a deserved point, while Arsenal moved up to fifth after comfortably dispatching West Ham 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United slipped to sixth after drawing again at home, this time 1-1 against Everton on Tuesday, while eighth place West Brom suffered an 11th defeat of the season by losing 2-0 at Watford.

At the bottom, Sunderland look doomed after going down 2-0 at champions Leicester, whose recent resurgence has seen them move up to 11th, while Middlesbrough look like joining the Black Cats in the Championship next term after they lost 4-2 at Marco Silva’s Hull City on Wednesday night.

Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace remain 16th after losing 3-1 at Southampton, who moved up to ninth as a result, while Burnley picked up yet another home win by beating Stoke City 1-0 on Tuesday.

Thus, it was a frantic few days of action in England’s top-flight, and many supporters took to Twitter to express their views on proceedings, with Chelsea fans particularly thrilled to see their side get back to winning ways on Wednesday night…

Some Blues supporters revelled in the display of match-winner Eden Hazard…

While City fans were left frustrated by a performance that seemed to epitomise their season…

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs left it very late to beat Swansea, a result which delighted many Tottenham supporters…

While there was frustration among Liverpool fans after their side once again dropped points against a side outside of the top six…

And it was the case of ‘same old, same old’ at Old Trafford as Mourinho’s United were again held to a draw, their ninth of the campaign at home, and 12th overall…
