Manchester United's top-four hopes took a major blow as they were held for a 1-1 draw by Burnley at Turf Moor. Paul Pogba' first Premier League goal of the season was cancelled out by Jay Rodriguez's strike. David de Gea conceded his first goal at Turf Moor as Burnley have lost their last five games against United without scoring.

For the second successive game, United failed to take their chances which ultimately cost them yet again. Once again United were brilliant in the first half as they were against Middlesbrough with Paul Pogba finding the net. VAR was once again the enemy for United as they has two goals ruled out in the first half.

But United once again conceded the advantage in the 2nd half as Jay Rodriguez levelled the scores for the Clarets. United were sloppy in the 2nd half and Burnley defended bravely to snatch a point. United have now slipped to 6th below Arsenal and West Ham, who picked up victories while it is three successive draws for Sean Dyche's side who are still last.

Southampton come from behind to beat Spurs

Antonio Conte's Tottenham have suffered a shock 3-2 loss to Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Two late goals were enough for Ralph Hasenhuttl' side to seal a come from behind victory.

Spurs took the lead in the 18th minute through a Jan Bednarek own goal. Southampton responded immediately with Chelsea loanee Adam Broja who fired in from close range. Southampton were the better team in the first half and played some fast-flowing, fluid football. Broja had another glorious opportunity to put the Saints ahead but put his shot wide.

Tottenham took the lead for the second time in the game as Son Heugh-min scored through a low cross from Lucas Moura. Southampton appealed for a foul on Broja in the build-up to the goal but VAR didn't reverse the decision. But two headers from Elyounoussi and Che Adams sealed a brilliant comeback win for the Saints who move up to 10th in the table while Spurs are 7th.
