Gabriel has looked better in Arsenal's new 3 CB formation but it wasn't to be today as he committed the penalty that effectively ended the North London Derby as a contest.

Arsenal loaded up on defenders and after 45 minutes it looked like it might be enough to earn them a draw or even a smash and grab three points. Instead, the defense crumbled, first allowing Christen Eriksen to slalom through on the way to a Dele Alli goal and then with Gabriel fouling Harry Kane in the box leading to a second goal via penalty. The defense-first alignment also meant that Arsenal were at a disadvantage going forward as Spurs had the numbers on them when they attacked. Alexis Sanchez had a few solid opportunities but nothing that will have really threatened Hugo Lloris' net. The only bright side on the day was that Manchester United and Manchester City both dropped points to inferior opposition leaving Arsenal with a lifeline for a top four spot despite the loss.

Christen Eriksen broke open the Arsenal defense as he dribbled through the Gunners defense and caused a rebound that Dele Alli put home for the opener as Spurs beat Arsenal 2-0 in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane.

For the first half it looked like Arsenal might have turned a new leaf as both sides had chances but both also held tight with a nil-nil scoreline going into the break. It was Christen Eriksen that broke the deadlock as he created a great opportunity. All Petr Cech could do was parry it and it fell to Dele Alli who slotted home for the opening goal. It didn't take long for Spurs to double their lead as Gabriel's naive defending saw Harry Kane draw and then convert a penalty. The result kept Spurs at four points behind Chelsea at the top and Arsenal remain behind Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United in the race for Champions League places.

Everton failed to score a goal for the second consecutive match following a 3-0 loss to Chelsea at Goodison Park.

It was the club's first loss at home in 2017, but the 3-0 scoreline may not truly represent how close the match was for the first hour. The Toffees had a clear defensive strategy to limit Eden Hazard's freedom down the wing, also putting a strong body on Diego Costa anytime he got near the ball. But the Toffees' wall slowly broke down until the 66th minute, when Pedro opened the scoring. With Chelsea holding a 1-0 lead, Everton threw its efforts into attack with Enner Valencia and Romelu Lukaku looking for an equalizer, but it soon got away from the Toffees who look certain to miss European qualification.

Chelsea turned a close match into a blowout with three goals in the last 25 minutes of the match in a 3-0 win against Everton.

It took 66 minutes for Chelsea to find a breakthrough against the Toffees at Goodison Park with Pedro smashing in a scintillating effort with his left foot from the top of the box. Then it was Gary Cahill who doubled the club's lead in the 79th minute as Everton looked to push forward for an equalizer. The defender pounced on a spilled effort from Maarten Stekelenburg in goal following an Eden Hazard free kick to double the Blues' lead. Then Cesc Fabregas and Willian combined for a beautiful one-two effort after just coming off the bench, with the Brazilian coolly finishing for the third and final goal. Antonio Conte will surely be pleased given it's the Blues first clean sheet since the end of January.

Alvaro Negredo led the charge for Middlesbrough in a 2-2 draw with former club Manchester City at the Riverside on Sunday.

The Spaniard once wore sky blue before he left for Valencia, returning to the Premier League to haunt his former club as it looks desperate for a Champions League berth. Negredo gave Middlesbrough the shock lead in the 38th minute, curling an effort off the post that sent the home faithful into a frenzy. After Sergio Aguero equalized from the spot after Maarten de Roon took down Leroy Sane in the box in the 69th, Negredo was back at it. He fought through a crowded penalty area following a free kick and shot a pass through to Calum Chambers for another lead in the 77th. But Gabriel Jesus was able to pull one back to steal a point for City, although a hard-earned point helps Middlesbrough keep pace with 17th-placed Swansea City.

Manchester City failed to break away from rival Manchester United following a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough on Sunday.

United's draw against relegation candidate Swansea City earlier in the day gave City hope that it could add to the one-point lead over its rivals for the fourth and final Champions League spot. But the Sky Blues had some trouble of their own with a relegation candidate in the Teessiders, led by former City striker Alvaro Negredo. Twice, they found themselves down a goal on Riverside, but City fans finally got their wish with a fluid attack featuring both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. Both strikers scored to come back from one-goal deficits with Aguero providing a perfect cross for Gabriel Jesus' header in the 85th minute to ensure a point after Aguero's 69th-minute penalty.

Manchester United squandered a chance to move to a top four position in the table, if only for a couple of hours, as they could only muster a 1-1 draw at home against Swansea City.

While United may be suffering from injury woes, they had plenty of talent in today's XI to get a win at home over a club currently in the relegation zone. However, while their attack managed to work their way into scoring range several times, they were short on an end product. They would take the lead though just before halftime in controversial fashion when Marcus Rashford was adjudged to have been fouled by the Swans keeper in the box, allowing Wayne Rooney to convert a penalty. Replays rather clearly showed though that Rashford took a dive. Despite the good fortune, United could not widen their lead and eventually capitulated late on. They now draw level with rivals Manchester City in the table, but the Citizens have their game to play today.
