Southampton gained revenge for 9-0 thrashing at the hands of Leicester in October to continue their resurgence with a 2-1 win at the Foxes, while Everton pipped Brighton 1-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Saints claimed their fifth win in six games at the King Power Stadium as they came from behind against the side second in the table.

Dennis Praet fired the hosts into an early lead, but Stuart Armstrong’s deflected effort quickly pulled Ralph Hassenhuttl’s men level.

Danny Ings then scored his 10th goal in 11 games eight minutes from time and the visitors survived a late scare when Jonny Evans’s header was ruled out by VAR for offside.

On the other hand, Richarlison scored a stunning solo goal as Everton returned to winning ways by beating Brighton 1-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Toffees dominated the match but withstood a nervous finish with Seagulls striker Glenn Murray nearly equalising twice within the final 10 minutes, forcing an excellent save out of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin saw a goal ruled out by VAR while Leandro Trossard hit the bar as both sides spurned good chances, but it was Carlo Ancelotti’s men who deservedly left Goodison with all three points.

Everton and Brighton remain 11th and 14th in the Premier League respectively, with the Toffees just five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United.
