Liverpool got back to winning ways, while ten-man Southampton held off Leicester City in Saturday's Premier League action.
Brighton and Hove Albion 0-1 Liverpool
Liverpool returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Brighton at AMEX Stadium on Saturday.
Mohamed Salah was the hero for Liverpool once again as he converted the penalty he won to restore Liverpool's seven-point lead at the top of the table with Man City to play on Sunday.
Burnley 2-1 Fulham
Burnley came from behind to claim a crucial 2-1 victory over Fulham in a bizzare game that saw two own goals at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Andre Schurrle opened the scoring with one of the goals of the season but then own goals from Joe Bryan (20') and Denis Odoi (23') condemned Fulham to their 14th loss of the season.
Crystal Palace 1-2 Watford
Watford extended their unbeaten run in the league to three games with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
A Craig Cathcart own goal gave the hosts the lead before Catchart made amends by scoring at the other end as Tom Cleverley completed the comeback.
Cardiff 0-0 Huddersfield
Cardiff and Huddersfield played out a stalemate in a game with no goals but plenty of controversy at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.
It was a bottom-of-the-table clash marred by a controversial decision as Lee Mason overruled his initial decision to award Huddersfield a penalty.
Cardiff move above Newcastle on the log, with the Magpies to play Chelsea later, whilst the Terriers remain rooted to the bottom of the table.
Leicester City 1-2 Southampton
A ten-man Southampton outfit held on for a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Saints had a bittersweet first-half, taking a 2-0 lead in to the interval but with ten men, having had Yan Valery sent off on the stroke of half-time.
Wilfred Ndidi would give them a scare with a second-half goal but ultimately the Foxes could not break their opposition down despite the numerical advantage.
