Powered by Christian Eriksen―who scored the opener―Spurs continued their good run with a 2-0 win over Manchester United in Week 25. Phil Jones added an own-goal to complete the scoring.

Tottenham haven't lost since December, when Manchester City held them at the Etihad Stadium, and with Chelsea slumping to a shock defeat against Bournemouth in Week 25, the gap between Spurs and the top four has shrunk to just two points.

Football writer Ian Darke noted consistency can be an issue for the team, however:

The same holds true for Liverpool, who arguably have more attacking talent than anyone in the league but continue to struggle on the other side of the pitch. Their win over Huddersfield was their first shutout of 2018.

The Reds only made one addition in the January transfer window, signing defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton. Some of their fans would have been left in disbelief after hoping for a quality replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who left for Barcelona.

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo hopes it was the right decision:

Arsenal did make a late splash by adding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the Gabon international didn't waste any time getting to work:

However, it's unlikely he'll have his first chance to impress against Everton, as Gunners manager Arsene Wenger revealed the 28-year-old has picked up a sickness bug. The Toffees have lost three of their last five matches in the league and haven't kept a clean sheet in any of those five contests.
