Tottenham players

Tottenham have dropped to 12th place in the Premier League after drawing with Sheffield United

Leicester and Chelsea both won in the Premier League on Saturday as they maintained their challenge for a top-four finish, while Tottenham dropped more points.

Leicester moved into second on goal difference, five points behind Liverpool, with a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the late game. Jamie Vardy and James Maddison scored as the Foxes recorded a fourth consecutive league win.

Chelsea are third after they beat Crystal Palace 2-0 – their sixth successive league win – thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.

Spurs were held 1-1 at home by Sheffield United, meaning Mauricio Pochettino’s side have failed to win any of their past five league games.

Son Heung-min put Spurs in front but George Baldock equalised for the Blades, who are now fifth in the table.

Everton increased the pressure on Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl with a 2-1 victory at St Mary’s, as Tom Davies and Richarlison scored either side of Danny Ings’ equaliser.

The Saints, who stay 19th, were booed off at full-time as some home fans threw their scarves on to the pitch.

West Ham’s winless run extended to seven games in all competitions as they were beaten 3-0 at Burnley, and they are just two places above the relegation zone.

Newcastle are up to 11th after coming from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 through goals from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark.
