English Premier League Report: Leicester City v Arsenal 09 November

Christian Pulisic heads home Chelsea's second goal against Crystal Palace to seal a sixth successive Premier League win for Frank Lampard's side.

Many have suggested that England midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain should start against the Premier League champions this weekend, the 26-year-old having scored four goals in his past three starts as he continues to work his way back from a long-term injury that saw him miss virtually the entirety of last season.

Ahead of Leicester City's meeting with Arsenal this weekend, Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side is capable of gatecrashing the Premier League's top six.

Thanks to their 9-0 victory against Southampton, they also have a better goal difference than league leaders, and Rodgers' former club, Liverpool. But this is an unfortunate spell for us, playing against the top teams in the land.

Spurs were given a fortuitous lead after halftime by Son Heung-min, but George Baldock's equaliser earned Sheffield United a 1-1 and extended their unbeaten run to five league games.

David McGoldrick thought he had levelled nearly immediately, but after a three-minute delay the goal was ruled out for John Lundstram being millimetres offside in the build-up.

"We won the game relatively comfortably", said Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has been crowned the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for October after scoring four goals in three games.

"He was a very important player during his football career".

"But as I said when we lost to both Man City and Leicester I can't sit here and honestly say that I'm disappointed in any way".

The hosts were denied a second in the 36th minute when Chris Wood's header was ruled out by VAR, but Wood did make it 2-0 after a mistake by defender Fabian Balbuena.

"When you concede so many easy goals it does not help".

"We have to find a way, but that's the beauty, the excitement, the challenge, and the project I was excited about in coming here, to see if we can break that mould, and not just create something, but sustain it, and that's what we are looking to do".

It got better for the home side with 15 minutes remaining as Vardy turned provider to set up Maddision, who sent a fine first-time finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Newcastle are now seven points clear of the drop zone as they came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at St James' Park thanks to goals from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark.
