EPL: Man Utd win to go top, Arsenal and Liverpool win

Manchester United have moved to the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 victory over Sunderland.

Memphis Depay tapped home from close range to give United the lead on the stroke of half time, before Wayne Rooney doubled their advantage 38 seconds into the second half.

Juan Mata added a third late on as United capitalised on Manchester City’s 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the day.

Alexis Sanchez scored a hat-trick as Arsenal came from behind to claim a 5-2 win over Leicester City in their Premier League clash.

Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes an early lead, but goals from Theo Walcott and Sanchez saw the Gunners head into the break in front.

Sanchez then added two more strikes in the second half, and after Vardy pulled a goal back for Leicester, Olivier Giroud scored deep into stoppage time to seal the points for Arsenal.

Daniel Sturridge scored twice to help ease the pressure off manager Brendan Rodgers in Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Anfield this afternoon.

James Milner opened the scoring inside two minutes, and while Rudy Gestede was able to pull back two goals for the visitors, it was not enough to cause an upset on Merseyside.

The Reds have ended their four-game run in the Premier League without a win, while Villa have recorded their fifth defeat of the season.
