EPL: Southampton draw Man Utd 0-0

Bottom club Southampton earned an important Premier League point by holding 10-man Manchester United to a goalless draw at Old Trafford, reports BBC Sports .
Casemiro was sent off after VAR intervention for a dangerous challenge on Carlos Alcaraz in the first half. Both sides had chances – Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters and United’s Bruno Fernandes hit the post, and James Ward-Prowse clipped the bar for Saints.
Southampton remain two points from safety, while United sit third.
Arsenal beat Fulham 3-0
Arsenal produced a slick attacking performance to beat Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage and re-establish a five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, reports Sky Sports.
Mikel Arteta’s side were under pressure to win after City’s late victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday and they responded emphatically, scoring three times in a rampant first half.
All three goals were created by Leandro Trossard, with Gabriel Magalhaes (21), Gabriel Martinelli (26) and Martin Odegaard (45+2) the beneficiaries, and there was a further boost as Gabriel Jesus made his return from injury as a late substitute.
Fulham improved in the second half, forcing Aaron Ramsdale into action on a couple of occasions and rattling the bar through Aleksandar Mitrovic, but Arsenal remained a threat at the other end, with Jesus nearly marking his comeback with a goal when he was denied by Bernd Leno.
The victory ensures Arsenal maintain a healthy lead over City at the top of the Premier League, their title chase gathering momentum with a fifth consecutive win which never really looked in doubt.
