Images from the English Premier League matches played on Saturday
Manchester United stayed on the tail of Premier League leaders and arch rivals Manchester City after a Lewis Dunk own goal gave them a laboured 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday.
United's 32-year old wing-back Ashley Young let fly from the edge of the penalty area in the 66th minute and his shot took a heavy deflection off Dunk, leaving visiting goalkeeper Mathew Ryan rooted to the spot.
The winner settled an uneventful contest as Brighton's packed defence foiled waves of attacks by United's 4-3-3 formation, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford deployed either side of striker Romelu Lukaku.
But Brighton, who had several dangerous raids down Young's flank, failed to clear a corner and the home side took advantage to stay second in the standings on 29 points from 13 games, five behind City who visit Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
Late Sakho strike earns Crystal Palace 2-1 win over Stoke
Defender Mamadou Sakho struck deep into stoppage time to snatch a badly-needed 2-1 win for the Premier League's basement club Crystal Palace over Stoke City at SelhurstPark on Saturday.
Xherdan Shaqiri gave Stoke the lead with a sensational solo goal early in the second half, picking up the ball on the halfway line and racing through a thicket of defenders before curling home a left-footed shot.
The lead lasted only three minutes as Ruben Loftus-Cheek stole in at the back post to tuck home Andros Townsend's cross to equalise for the Eagles.
Ryan Shawcross missed a great late chance for Stoke and Palace made the most of it, with Yohan Cabaye hitting the post before Sakho rifled home the rebound in the 92nd minute to give Roy Hodgson's side just their second victory of the season.
Improved Swansea draw against Bournemouth
Swansea City produced a vastly-improved performance and ended a run of four straight Premier League losses with a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Swansea midfielder Leroy Fer missed a chance to seal the win in the final 10 minutes, shooting straight at goalkeeper Asmir Begovic before missing with his second attempt while teammate Tammy Abraham had a penalty appeal denied late on.
Wilfried Bony provided the game's other talking point just before halftime when the Swansea striker curled a shot into the top corner but his effort was disallowed after Jordan Ayew was adjudged to have fouled defender Nathan Ake in the build-up.
Bournemouth began the game brightly but missed a chance to go ahead within two minutes as winger Marc Pugh scuffed Joshua King's low cross. Bournemouth sat back and allowed Swansea to grow in confidence but the hosts failed to make the most of their chances.
