Romelu Lukaku scored an 88th-minute goal to earn Manchester United a thrilling 3-2 victory over Southampton and a place in the top four of the Premier League on Saturday.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, moving the Gunners above their opponents and into fourth place.

Unai Emery's men also close to within just a point of third-placed Tottenham and now hold the upper hand in the race for Champions League qualification.

United travelled to the Emirates Stadium brimful of confidence after their astonishing Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek and without a single domestic defeat since interim boss Solskjaer took over in mid-December.

Arsenal's next game in the Premier League is at home to Newcastle on April 1, but before then they face Rennes in the Europa League last 16 second leg on Thursday.

Some urged Clinton to "please stop" with her tweeting, while others reminded her that she, a career politician, lost the 2016 race to "Celeb Apprentice" Trump.

Emery made five changes from that side and was rewarded with a vital victory.

Elsewhere, Roberto Firmino returned to goalscoring form at the ideal moment for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, hitting the net twice in a 4-2 victory over Burnley that hauled them back to within a point of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

An onslaught of the Arsenal goal never materialised, Rashford heading straight at the impressive Leno in stoppage time as Solskjaer's side tasted a rare defeat.

It did not help that four of United's best players in recent months let their high standards dip.

"The message from today is that nobody gets rid of us, if we play as we played today", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

In 2012, he contracted a leg infection that required him to have his right leg amputated below the knee. He is survived by his third wife, Patricia Ann Christ, and a daughter from his first marriage.

"We are positive", Emery said after the match.

Aubameyang stepped up to the spot with commendable nerve having missed a stoppage-time penalty last week in the north London Derby, but there was no mistake from the prolific striker this time as he converted the ball down the middle to double their advantage.

"We played a better game today than in the cup". The referee will be disappointed when he sees it (penalty decision), as I don't think it is a penalty.

"I am just happy we won the game and we have put ourselves in a great position to finish off the season and hopefully nick a top-four spot".

"The momentum is incredible but there's still a long way to go for this to be a successful season for Manchester United". But I came back the next morning with a big spirit, with a big confidence for Sunday first and also for this week.
