Ashley Young was an unlikely match winner as Manchester United defeated Brighton 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

The utility player, who has been employed mainly as a defender this season, saw his strike deflect in via Lewis Dunk to move United back within five points of league leader Manchester City.

United's home form is keeping it in touch with unbeaten City. It has now won its last eight league games at Old Trafford, seven of which have been this season.

Brighton, which had gone undefeated in its previous five games, gave United a stern challenge but was punished for failing to take its chances against Jose Mourinho's side.

City has a chance to re-establish an eight point lead when it plays Huddersfield on Sunday.

Spurs draws 1-1 vs West Brom in latest blow to title hopes

Tottenham's Premier League title hopes were dealt another blow on Saturday as it drew 1-1 against West Bromwich Albion.

It could have been worse for Spurs. Harry Kane equalized with 15 minutes to go after Salomon Rondon had given West Brom an early lead.

The Baggies were playing their first game since firing manager Tony Pulis, with his former assistant Gary Megson taking temporary charge.

Facing a side that hasn't won in 10 league matches, Tottenham was expected to recover from a stinging loss to Arsenal a week ago but Mauricio Pochettino's team lacked intensity.

Rondon gave the visitor the lead after just four minutes when he found the bottom corner, having been played through by Jake Liveremore.

With defeat looming, Kane converted Dele Alli's cross to score his 40th Spurs goal of 2017.

Tottenham now trails leader Manchester City by 10 points.
