Manchester United had a lead on Stoke City but coughed it up, and Arsene Wenger celebrated 20 years in charge of Arsenal with

Here, recapped, is Sunday in England’s top flight.

Manchester United 1-1 Stoke CityFULL RECAP

Manchester United dominated the entire first half and much of the second as well, but they were wasteful in front of net, and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant was fantastic to keep the Red Devils to just one. It was Anthony Martial off the bench to finally give the home side a deserved lead, but Joe Allen capitalized on a mistake by David De Gea with just eight minutes to go in a game that Jose Mourinho called Manchester United’s “best performance of the season.”

Tottenham 2-0 Manchester CityFULL RECAP

Spurs remained the only unbeaten team in Premier League play as they handed Manchester City and Pep Guardiola its first loss of the year. Aleksandar Kolarov awkwardly touched the opener into his own net, and Dele Alli was there for the second, assisted by the in-form Heung-Min Son. City was not without its chances in the match, but Hugo Lloris was up to the task in front of the home fans at White Hart Lane.

Leicester City 0-0 SouthamptonFULL RECAP

The two sides had a few half-chances, but both Jamie Vardy and Charlie Austin wasted their team’s best one and defenses held firm the rest of the way as Leicester and Southampton shared the points at King Power Stadium, hardly serving to move either side out of midtable obscurity.

Burnley 0-1 ArsenalFULL RECAP

Arsenal bagged all three points on the last kick of the match, with Laurent Koscielny tapping in the winner in the third minute of injury time. However, it didn’t come without controversy, as it appeared Koscielny was offside on the touch by Oxlade-Chamberlain, and it clearly hit the defender’s arm on its way in as well. Either way, the goal was given and Burnley sunk despite a solid defensive showing that locked down the Gunners most of the way.
