How the Premier League table looks after 29 matches

Manchester United moved above Arsenal and Everton into fifth place in the Premier League table with victory over Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho’s side recorded a 3-1 victory at the Riverside Stadium as Arsene Wenger’s Gunners fell into sixth spot following their defeat at West Brom.

Two Craig Dawson headers either side of Hal Robson-Kanu pouncing on David Ospina spilling a cross were too much for the visitors, whose goal came from Alexis Sanchez.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Tottenham welcome Southampton to White Hart Lane while Manchester City and Liverpool meet at the Etihad.

As Arsenal fans battled out over Arsene Wenger’s future with aerial protests, the Gunners found themselves utterly outclassed by a powerful, organised Albion side.

Further up the table, Gary Cahill's 87th-minute header saw Chelsea beat Stoke City and open up a 13-point gap at the top of the standings ahead of Tottenham and Manchester City playing on Sunday.

Elsewhere, a Troy Deeney own goal saw Crystal Palace collect their third win on the bounce against Watford, while West Ham fell to 3-2 defeat at the London Stadium to a resurgent Leicester City.
