There were plenty of goals and talking points from yesterday's #Premier League action. Here is a review of the best bits.

Arsenal back to winning ways

#Arsenal put their woeful previous games to bed with a routine and convincing 2-0 victory at home to Hull City, as reported on the Fotmob website. And who got the goals? Who else but Alexis Sanchez. Where they will be without the Chilean I do not know, but the victory was enough to keep them in the top four race, and only a point behind second-placed Spurs. The question for Arsenal is, can they kick on from now until the end of the season? The league is virtually gone but Champions League qualification is well within their grasp.

Manchester United defeat Watford

All in all a comfortable 2-0 victory for #Manchester United against a Watford side who were on a good spell going into the game. But United were simply too strong for Watford. As reported on BBC Sport, goals from Juan Mata and Anthony Martial were enough to keep United in with the rest of the pack. As a result of this victory, United are now unbeaten in their past sixteen league games. That is not something to be sniffed at. If they can keep this run going, there is no reason why they cannot make the top four. Do that and win the EFL Cup and it will represent a good return for Mourinho in his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Liverpool do it again

If only Liverpool could play against the top six teams every week. Before this game they had already beaten Arsenal, City and Chelsea and had drawn twice with Manchester United.

But yesterday, they were simply on another level. This was the Liverpool of the first few months of the season. Fast, clever in possession and counter-attacking with great speed and gusto, Liverpool blew away the in-form Spurs, winning 2-0. Lallana was magnificent and oh how they have missed Sadio Mane. The Tottenham defenders simply could not deal with his pace and movement. His two goals were exceptionally well taken and if they can keep him fresh and fit, Liverpool will most certainly be within a shout of the top four. And Spurs? Simply a bad day at the office. Pochettino's players did not turn up and were outclassed in every department. But going forward, I think it will represent a blip and nothing more serious.
