Manchester United got the better of Premier League leaders Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday to inflict a fifth league defeat of the campaign on Antonio Conte’s side.

The Blues saw second place Tottenham thump Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday to reduce the gap at the summit to just four points, but goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera secured a deserved victory for Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils on Sunday.

And it means that, with just six games of the season remaining, Chelsea’s lead is just four points, and with Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs on a seven-game winning streak, the title race isn’t quite over just yet.

Liverpool remain third after narrowly beating West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns, while Manchester City eased past Southampton 3-0 at St Mary’s to stay in fourth, four points clear of neighbours United after their fine win over the leaders.

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal picked up their first Premier League away win since January by seeing off struggling Middlesbrough 2-1, and that means that the Gunners are now ahead of Ronald Koeman’s Everton in the table despite the Toffees comfortably beating Burnley 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Watford climbed into the top ten with a 1-0 success over relegation-threatened Swansea, who remain third bottom, while basement side Sunderland have now gone eight games without a victory after only mustering a 2-2 draw at home to Slaven Bilic’s West Ham.

Marco Silva’s Hull lost on the road again, this time at Stoke City, while champions Leicester warmed up for their crucial Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday with a hard-fought 2-2 draw away at a resurgent Crystal Palace.

Clearly, it was an enthralling weekend in English football’s top tier, and several supporters took to Twitter to express their views on the matches, with United fans lauding a best display of the season as their side beat Chelsea on Sunday…

While many Blues supporters were frustrated and disappointed with their team’s efforts at Old Trafford…

Pochettino’s Spurs won again, this time comprehensively seeing off Bournemouth at White Hart Lane, and many Tottenham supporters were absolutely delighted with their side’s dominant performance on Saturday…

With one man in particular standing out above all…

And Easter Monday saw Arsenal get back to winning ways after a turbulent few weeks, a result which pleased many, even if the performance wasn’t quite at a high level…
