Chelsea may be enjoying a scintillating run of success in the Premier League at present; however, former Blues ace and current Arsenal star Petr Cech feels the Gunners still have a good chance of beating their city rivals to the coveted trophy.

The 34 year old was quoted in The Daily Mirror, saying: “We need to win these games as you can’t let them have the advantage of making the gap bigger. If everyone gets points Chelsea feels the pressure from behind. This is ­probably the better scenario for those of us who are chasing.”

Liverpool brought Manchester United's winning streak to a halt, but not in the fashion that they would have preferred as an excellent header from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 84th minute rescued a deserved point for the Red Devils against their arch rivals in their clash at Old Trafford.

Earlier in the game, a James Milner penalty, perfectly placed after Paul Pogba's handball in the box had given Liverpool a 1-0 lead, but it was to prove insufficient in the end as the desire of Manchester United to keep chasing the game saw them grab something out of it at the very end to keep their narrow hopes of a title challenge alive.

The pressure is well and truly on Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola after the Citizens were handed a thumping 4-0 defeat at the hands of Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday evening. Romelu Lukaku set the ball rolling for the Toffees with a strike just after the half hour mark, having been set up by Belgian international teammate Kevin Mirallas.

Mirallas himself added a second just two minutes after the interval to put Everton firmly in the driver's seat. It was then left to two teenagers in the Everton squad, Tom Davies and new signing Ademola Lookman to add the gloss to the scoreline with two quality goals, the latter scoring on his Everton debut.

A brace from wing back Marcos Alonso and a goal from Spanish wizard Pedro ensured that Chelsea did not miss the services of Diego Costa one bit as the Blues continued their march towards the Premier League title with a 3-0 thumping of reigning champions Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

What was last season a fortress now appeared to be more of a motorway as Leicester were overturned far too easily, conceding as early as the 6th minute as Eden Hazard set up Alonso for a cool finish to set the Blues on their way.

A pair of own goals in between a goal each for Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez helped Arsenal end their poor run of recent results away from home in the Premier League, thrashing Swansea City 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

With Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both returning to the side and straight into the starting line-up, Arsene Wenger might have expected a better start from his Arsenal side, but the Gunners continued their early struggles, taking close to half an hour to find their groove.
