Manchester City 3 - 1 Manchester United | Thanks to the the goals from David Silva (12'), Sergio Aguero (48') and Iikay Gundogan (86'), City came out on the top in the much anticipated Manchester Derby. Anthony Martial converted from the spot in the 58th minute after substitute Romelu Lukaku was fouled by the on-rushing Ederson but City proved too strong an opponent for José Mourinho's men to kindle any further hope of revival. This was City's first home derby victory in four years. The win saw City continue its stay at top of the Premier League table while United linger at eighth -- 12 points adrift from their cross town rivals. (Image: Reuters)

Southampton 1 – 1 Watford | Charlie Austin was furious after having a goal disallowed in the second half which would’ve given the Saints a 2-0 lead. Manolo Gabbiadini put the hosts ahead in the first half with a well taken left-footed strike. Austin had the ball in the back of the net but the referee incorrectly believed it went in off Maya Yoshida who was in an offside position.

Cardiff City 2 – 1 Brighton & Hove Albion | Brighton took the lead just six minutes into the game when Lewis Dunk ran past Sol Bamba with ease to head home. The visitors were unlucky though as a deflected shot fell kindly for Callum Paterson to equalize in the 28th minute. Brighton were reduced to 10 men when Dale Stephens was shown a red card for a lunge shortly after conceding. Sol Bamba made amends for his role in the first goal when he scored in the last minute of the game to give Cardiff all three points. (Image: Reuters)
