Man City move three points clear as Man Utd draw at Arsenal

The threat of Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City's South American and Portuguese players being forced to quarantine has prompted the Premier League to seek clarity over whether they could be stopped from playing for their countries.

City's lead is just one point, though, so any stumble would allow crosstown rival Manchester United (12-4-4) back into the lead with a win at Arsenal (9-8-3) on Saturday (Ch. 4, Telemundo, 9:30 a.m. PT). City have been very good at cruising past teams in recent weeks, but finding a way to win - without Sergio Aguero or Kevin De Bruyne - will please Guardiola, whose side end the weekend three points clear at the summit.

Chelsea's German midfielder Melanie Leupolz scored a superb first-half goal and added a second after the break with a penalty as champion Chelsea made it 33 league matches unbeaten with its hammering of mid-table Spurs. Firmino has scored six goals so far this season. The 24-year-old, who cost nearly £50million in the summer, registered another blank, meaning he has scored just once in his last 17 games.

Admittedly, two key video assistant referee (VAR) decisions went against them but all too often, their shots were either blocked or sailed wide. Callum Wilson ended a six-game barren run of his own, with two goals in the final 17 minutes to give his side a first away win since November.

Damian Martinez has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League this season and he earned another 7 points and his 10th clean sheet of the season as Aston Villa went to Southampton and won 1-0.

Their team have been together a long time so they know what to do. "We struggle because they are a very good side". It's hard to pick just one player, as City had plenty of contributors but few stars.

"Bruce's men are now eight points clear of the relegation zone after a point each did little for West Brom or Fulham's battle to beat the drop". I'm not going to get drawn into that title race that you're writing about. But Salah was not backwards in coming forwards in giving a reason why he had struggled for goals.

"United definitely had the chances to win the game", Carragher said on Sky Sports after the Arsenal match.

"We can only control our own performances, our own results", said Solskjaer.

They signed Brazilian striker Willian Jose late last month on loan for the rest of the season from Real Sociedad but the continued absence of Raul Jimenez is one problem Nuno has not been able to solve.
