Ledley King's Talking Points

Spurs looked comfortable as they took a 1-0 lead into half-time against Southampton, but complacency and what Pochettino described as arrogance gave Saints the chance to get back in the game and take all three points at St Mary's. After the game star man Eriksen said: "We need to look ahead. What’s happened has happened and all we can do is try to get back on track."

Arsenal leapfrogged Man United into fourth place with a 2-0 win at the Emirates on Sunday. It was the first domestic taste of defeat for Solskjaer, while Lukaku has now scored just one goal in 18 games against the top six for United. 

Raheem Sterling netted a hat-trick to help Man City maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table. Sterling has scored in 52 games in all competitions for City, not losing any of those games (W50 D2) and winning each of the last 34. 

Newcastle came from 2-0 down to beat Everton and take their points tally to a comfortable 34 points in the PL. Rafa Benitez has done a great job at Newcastle with very limited resources, and safety is now within arms reach.

Jack Grealish scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory for Aston Villa that leaves the claret and blues just four points outside the Championship play-off places. Grealish was attacked by a Birmingham fan early in the first half, but his goal was fitting revenge, helping Villa win back to back games for the first in four months and move ahead of Birmingham in the table.

Reading trailed 2-1 in the 89th minute at the Madejski Stadium against Wigan, but remarkably pulled it back to win after goals from Mo Barrow and Yakou Meite. The 97th-minute winner means the Royals finished the day three points clear of the drop.

West Brom have sacked Darren Moore after their 1-1 draw with bottom-of-league Ipswich. The Baggies are in fourth place but are without a home win in the Championship since Boxing Day.
