Granit Xhaka surprises precisely no one by receiving a yellow card.

Wilfried Zaha walks for a second yellow, earned for some unnecessary touchline-petulance. He has looked frustrated since the first whistle. This just got a lot harder for a rudderless Palace.
TOTTENHAM 2-0 CRYSTAL PALACE: MOURA MAKES IT TWO
Lucas Moura couldn’t miss a few yards from goal and he puts the header past Butland in the Palace goal. Tottenham, and the Conte era, have suddenly got going.
TOTTENHAM 1-0 CRYSTAL PALACE: KANE PUTS TOTTENHAM IN FRONT

NORWICH 0-1 ARSENAL: IT’S ALMOST TWO
Lacazette almost makes it two for Arsenal with a header that really should have nestled in the net. Close, but the away side are certainly on top.

Raheem Sterling goes down after a trip. An obvious one and Sterling will take it…

City clearly not feeling all that festive as they punish Leicester again. Schmeichel can do little more than palm a low cross into the path of Ilkay Gundogan. A gift.
MAN CITY 2-0 LEICESTER: MADDISON HITS THE BAR
A freekick from 25-yards out almost sneaks in to claw back a goal for Leicester. But Ederson is equal to it – just – and tips it onto the bar.
MAN CITY 2-0 LEICESTER: MAHREZ SCORES TO PUT CITY TWO-UP EARLY
