Manchester United and Manchester City played out a 0-0 draw in the Premier League on Sunday, while Tottenham Hotspur surged to a 5-1 victory at Bournemouth.

Also, Jürgen Klopp was denied his first victory as Liverpool’s manager when Sadio Mane scored a late goal to earn Southampton a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

At Old Trafford, United was closest to scoring against City when the substitute Jesse Lingard headed a high ball from Anthony Martial onto the crossbar.

The point moved City back to the top of the Premier League standings. Both City and Arsenal have 22 points, but City has a larger goal difference. United remains in fourth, with 20 points.

Also, Sunderland moved out of last place with its first win of the season, a 3-0 victory against its visiting rival, Newcastle. Sunderland’s win moved Aston Villa into last place on the day that it fired Manager Tim Sherwood.
