Dango Ouattara’s dramatic late strike snatched a 3-2 win for Bournemouth over Tottenham in a Premier League thriller on Saturday. Arnaut Danjuma looked to have salvaged a point for Spurs with an 89th-minute equaliser after goals from Matias Vina and Dominic Solanke put the Cherries in front following Son Heung-min’s opener. But Ouattara had the final say with a superbly composed finish in the fifth minute of stoppage time to hand Gary O’Neil’s side three precious points in their battle to stay in the top flight.

Bukayo Saka’s penalty miss proved costly for Arsenal as the Premier League leaders yet again surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with West Ham. Saka shot wide from 12 yards in the 52nd minute of Sunday’s encounter at London Stadium, with Jarrod Bowen swiftly pulling West Ham level. Mikel Arteta’s team – who saw Manchester City defeat Leicester City 3-1 on Saturday – started brilliantly, going 2-0 up inside 10 minutes thanks to Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard. Yet Said Benrahma’s penalty saw the nerves set in, with West Ham taking advantage of Saka’s shocker as Arsenal were unable to restore their six-point lead at the top.

Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota both scored twice as Liverpool returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 6-1 hammering of Leeds United on Monday. Jurgen Klopp’s side had not tasted victory in any competition since the March 5 thrashing of Manchester United but ended a five-game winless streak at their relegation-threatened hosts. Liverpool took control through a quickfire first-half double from Cody Gakpo and Salah, although Luis Sinisterra pulled one back two minutes into the second half at Elland Road. There was to be no dramatic turnaround as a Jota brace, either side of Salah’s second, made sure of three points that moved the Reds to within six of Europa League qualification, before Darwin Nunez completed the scoring off the bench.
