2. Leicester City win 4-1 against Southampton

3. Burnley riding near the Top 4
On Tuesday, Burnley came out with a late win against Stoke City. It was after that result Burnley were in the Top 4, in a Champions League spot.

Currently, Burnley sit in 6th position after the results of other fixtures but they’re knocking on the door of a European competition.
4. Spurs win 2-0, Serge Aurier scores phenomenal 1st PL goal
Just before the end of the first half, defender Serge Aurier scored on what was an attempted cross from the right.

The Spurs finished off their opponents, Brighton & Hove Albion, with a goal in the 87th minute. The Spurs rise to 4th in the table while Brighton remain 13th.
5. Chelsea beat Huddersfield 3-1
Chelsea had no trouble handling their opponent, walking into the half with a 2-0 lead. Winger Pedro made it 3-0 in the 50th to put the game away despite the stoppage time goal from Huddersfield. Chelsea remain 3rd in the table while Huddersfield remain 12th.
