LANGSUNG: Nketiah mencetak dua kali;  Daka menarik tingkat Leicester;  West Ham memimpin

There are huge games taking place with ramifications at both ends of the Premier League table on Sunday, and you can follow all the action live here.

Arsenal send ten-man Leeds into drop zone

Scorers: Nketiah 5′, 10′; Llorente 66′.

Arsenal survived a late fightback  from ten-man Leeds United to move four points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the top four.

A howler from Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier gifted the Gunners the lead after just five minutes.

The Frenchman received a back-pass but was closed down by Gunners striker Eddie Nketiah who blocked his attempted clearance and the ball ended up in the back of the net in bizarre fashion.

Nketiah made it two five minutes later, this time being found in the box by Gabriel Martinelli’s cut-back before placing a shot into the bottom corner.

Things went from bad to worse for Jesse Marsch before the first half ended  as Luke Ayling received his marching orders for a two-footed challenge on Martinelli which was turned to a red after referee Chris Kavanagh was referred to the pitch side monitor.

However, Diego Llorente got the visitors back into the game after tucking home at the back-post after a corner had been flicked into his path midway through the second half.

Mikel Arteta’s men held out and now head into Thursday’s north London derby knowing a win will guarantee their spot in next season’s Champions League.

Everton boost survival hopes

Scorers: Daka 11′; Mykolenko 6′, Holgate 30′.

Everton move out of the relegation zone after a hard-fought win at the King Power stadium.

The Toffees made the perfect start with left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko giving them the lead with a sweet left-footed volley from 20 yards out.

However, Leicester pulled themselves back into it when Patson Daka took advantage of a mix-up between Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman to run through on goal and slot the ball past Jordan Pickford.

Mason Holgate restored Everton’s lead on the half-hour mark, heading home a rebound after Kasper Schmeichel had originally kept out Richarlison’s header from a corner.

Frank Lampard had Jordan Pickford to thank for keeping the win in tact in the second half as England’s no.1 pulled off a number of remarkable saves to deny Harvey Barnes and Nampalys Mendy.

Everton move up to 16th and now have a one-point gap over Leeds in 18th.

West Ham back in the race for Europe

Scorers: Benrahma 12′, 45+3′, Antonio 30′, Lanzini (pen) 64′.

The Hammers shook off their Europa League exit to blow Norwich aside and boost their hopes of qualifying for the competition next season.

West Ham worked the ball well around the Norwich box with Jarrod Bowen spreading the ball to the Algerian who cut inside and saw his deflected shot from the edge of the box evade Tim Krul.

Michail Antonio doubled their advantage after latching on to a mix-up between Krul and Grant Hanley to roll the ball into the empty net.

Benrahma added his second just before the half-time break, again after being set up by Bowen before blasting past Krul from 14 yards out.

Manuel Lanzini mad it four from the penalty spot midway through the second half after a spot-kick had been awarded for handball from a corner.

David Moyes’ men are now just three points behind sixth-placed Manchester United with a game in hand on Ralf Rangnick’s side.
