Sunday Premier League: Arsenal hammers Man U, Merceyside Derby stays even

Everton 1-1 Liverpool
Liverpool opened the scoring in the 41st minute. Danny Ings was pretty wide open in the six yard box on a corner and was able to head the ball in with ease. Romelu Lukaku got Everton back on terms during first half stoppage time, however. He was in the right place at the right time to boot home a ball that came to him off both of Liverpool's center backs. The second half lacked the excitement of the first and failed to provide any more goals. Everton misses the chance to take an early leap into the top four,l but their chances to do that aren't going anywhere yet.

Arsenal 3-0 Manchester United
In order to win against the high flying attack of Manchester United, Arsenal really needed a fast start. The combination of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil provided just that. Sanchez flicked home a feed from Ozil in the sixth minute and Ozil buried a goal of his own in the eventh to get the Gunners off to a lighting fast two goal lead. Sanchez struck again in the 20th minute. He evaded a couple defenders on the edge of the penalty area and hammered a shot into the top corner.

Arsenal would carry that lead through a very defensive second half. They didn't allow United much of anything after that third goal, and they rode their defensive tactics to a huge clean sheet against one of the highest scoring teams in the Premier League. The three points move Arsenal into third, behind United only on goal difference.

Swansea 2-2 Tottenham
Andre Ayew's floating header at the quarter hour mark started things off for Swansea. Tottenham's Christian Eriksen got them back on terms in the 27th minute. Harry Kane, normally scoring goals for Spurs, put a pretty classy shot into his own net in the 31st.The Danish free kick expert struck again to give Spurs a point in the 65th minute.
