Antonio Conte is in his worst run as manager for 12 years following yet another defeat to Wolves on Sunday.
West Ham failed to take advantage in the race for the top four as they could only manage a 2-2 draw at Leicester.
The Hammers needed an injury-time equaliser from Craig Dawson to earn a point after goals from Youri Tielemans (penalty) and Ricardo Pereira had overturned a 10th minute strike from in-form Jarrod Bowen.
Ralf Rangnick’s side continued their trend of scoring the opening goal only to ultimately drop points. With Cristiano Ronaldo in the midst of his worst run since 2009, it was left to Jadon Sancho to open the scoring for the Red Devils.
However, a precise finish from Che Adams levelled the match early in the second half, and Man Utd could not have any complaints that they were unable to find a winner. Indeed, it was arguably Saints who were the more threatening side.
Man Utd, therefore, are fifth.
So it was a good weekend for sixth-placed Arsenal, who didn’t play and have games in hand on those above them.
At the top of the table, meanwhile, Manchester City had unsurprisingly few issues overcoming lowly Norwich to reinforce their lead at the top of the standings. Raheem Sterling scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 win, with Phil Foden grabbing the other goal.
In another pivotal clash in the relegation battle, meanwhile, Everton brushed aside Leeds 3-0. Donny van de Beek was on song for the Toffees, who eased to a win thanks to goals from Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane and Anthony Gordon.
