Premier League round-up: Manchester United thrash Fulham, Arsenal leave it late against Huddersfield, and West Ham down Crystal Palace

There were important wins at the bottom of the Premier League in today’s 3pm kick-offs…

1-0

It looked as though Arsenal would drop points against a resilient Huddersfield side until Lucas Torreira popped up with an overhead kick with seven minutes to go.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang wasted glorious chances to open the scoring in the first-half as Huddersfield clung on.

The goal is a huge blow to David Wagner’s team, who drop into the relegation zone.

Burnley 1-0 Brighton

Burnley climbed out of the drop zone with a much-needed win over Brighton.

Jack Cork’s shot deflected in off Tarkowski in a game of few chances. The defeat for Brighton sees them drop to 11th place.

Any hope Fulham had of a comeback when Aboubakar Kamara converted a second-half penalty was ended when Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Marcus Rashford, who assisted two goals, added a fourth late on to compound the Cottagers’ misery.

3-2

West Ham secured their third successive league win after coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace.

James McArthur had given the Eagles a half-time lead before Robert Snodgrass brought the Hammers level three minutes after the break.
