Newcastle hit back from two goals down to grab a 2-2 draw at West Brom and end a run of four consecutive defeats.

That belief paid off seven minutes from time when Matt Ritchie's ball into the box took a couple of deflections and went into the net off Baggies defender Jonny Evans.

Ashley Young turned on the style against his former club as Manchester United survived a late scare to move to within five points of Premier League leaders Manchester City with a 4-2 win at Watford.

Young spent 11 years at Vicarage Road after joining Watford as a schoolboy but he left no room for sentiment as two brilliant first-half strikes paved the way for an entertaining United win.

Young lashed home a 19th minute opener with a low shot from outside the box then curled home a superb free-kick six minutes later after a foul by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

A third from Anthony Martial looked to have ended the game as a contest but Watford gave themselves hope of a point through a Troy Deeney penalty and a second from Doucoure.

United ultimately sealed victory with a brilliant solo goal from Jesse Lingaard four minutes from time to finally sink the Hornets' hopes.

Sky Bet's biggest winning RequestABet was Martial to score, Manchester United to win, both teams to score and Marcos Rojo to be carded at 18/1.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham slipped up again as brilliant first-half goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez handed Leicester a 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy latched onto a ball over the top from Marc Albrighton to volley a superb 13th minute opener, then Mahrez curled home Leicester's second on the stroke of half-time.

Already reeling from their dropped point at home to West Brom at the weekend, Spurs reduced the deficit when Harry Kane lashed home a through-ball from the returning Erik Lamela 11 minutes from time.

Spurs almost snatched a point in the final seconds when first Danny Rose had a penalty appeal turned down, then Dele Alli flashed a final shot just wide.

Brighton goalkeeper Matthew Ryan was the Seagulls star in an otherwise forgettable goalless draw against bottom club Crystal Palace.

Ryan pulled off a superb early save to deny Wilfred Zaha as the Eagles were once again left searching for their first away goal of the season.
