Manchester City move level on points with Liverpool at the summit of the Premier League thanks to two goals from the returning Yaya Toure at Crystal Palace. Jurgen Klopp's side meanwhile failed to score for just the third time this season after coming up short against Southampton, who put an end to a run of three straight defeats in all competitions.
Today may prove pivotal in Sunderland's season as they moved to within two points of climbing out of the relegation zone after an emphatic win over Hull City with Victor Anichebe scoring twice. Swansea remain in the bottom three despite leading at Everton for 89 minutes, before Seamus Coleman popped up with a late equaliser to deny Bob Bradley his first win as Swans manager.
Watford scored twice in the opening 12 minutes minutes to send champions Leicester hurdling ever closer to the relegation zone, while Bournemouth picked up their first away win of the season at Stoke City.
Full-time: Sunderland 3-0 Hull City
Full-time: Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester City

It's all over at St Mary's! Claude Puel's side have kept out the free-scoring Liverpool and it means Chelsea could leapfrog them into top spot tomorrow when they play Middlesbrough.
Back-to-back wins for Sunderland! Victor Anichebe has lashed home his second of the afternoon. That's his first brace in the Premier League since 2006!
Goal! Sunderland 3-0 Hull City (Victor Anichebe, 90+2)
We are into injury time in all six of our 3pm kick offs...
Liverpool have thrown Divock Origi as they search for a goal but they are running out of time...
Everton are level with minutes to go! Swansea fail to clear and Coleman loops a fine header over Fabianski and into the back of the net.
Goal! Everton 1-1 Swansea (Seamus Coleman, 89)
It's hasn't been a bad old return to the first-team for Yaya Toure this afternoon. From a free kick, Kevin de Bruyne rolls the ball across goal that bypasses every Palace defender back to defend. Toure is the only one alive to it and is well placed to poke home from inside the box.
Goal! Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester City (Yaya Toure, 82)
Daniel Sturridge has come on for Liverpool to replace Emre Can. Jurgen Klopp is not settling for a point here.
Sunderland have doubled their lead! Brilliant work from Patrick van Aanholt, cutting a ball back to Anichebe inside the box who smashes past Marshall to get his second goal in as many games.
Goal! Sunderland 2-0 Hull City (Victor Anichebe, 62)
Southampton's Boufal has struggled on his Premier League debut, in an admittedly difficult fixture to come into. His afternoon is over with Shane Long entering the fray to replace him.
Goal! Crystal Palace 1-1 Manchester City (Conor Wickham, 66)
Moments after Southampton passed up a fine chance through Charlie Austin, Liverpool have missed their best chance of the game with Firmino poking wide of the goal after being freed one-on-one. Poor miss.
Watford so close from making it three against Leicester! Janmaat clips a delightful ball into Pereyra who heads towards goal, but can't quite steer it past Schmeichel who tips it away.
Finally, play is back underway at the Stadium of Light.
Liverpool have had their best opportunity of the game in the last give minutes, and it is Coutinho who has been spurned. Having been brilliantly slipped through by Firmino, the Brazil international scuffed his shot under pressure from Fonte.
