Romelu Lukaku scored one and assisted another as Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-1 in a crucial clash in the top-four race at Old Trafford this afternoon.

The Belgian proved that he can be a big-game player by cancelling out Willian ‘s first-half opener within seven minutes, and later providing Jesse Lingard with the winner.

With the result, United regain second place from Liverpool and open up a six-point gap back to Chelsea in fifth.

Harry Kane ‘s 35th goal of the season ensured that Tottenham Hotspur kept their unbeaten start to 2018 intact courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 victory away against Crystal Palace in the Premier League this afternoon.

It had looked like the Eagles would earn a vital point to bolster their bid to avoid relegation after an industrious game at Selhurst Park, but Kane headed home in the 89th minute to break Palace hearts and earn Spurs a third consecutive league win at Palace for the first time in the club’s history.

Spurs are now unbeaten in 15 games across all competitions, representing their best run in 19 years.
