PHOTO: Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City stars get stuck in

Leading lights from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Manchester City pulled no Premier League punches on Wednesday.

Another round of Premier League fixtures has been completed, with there just about enough time to rest aching limbs before the action resumes at the weekend.

On Wednesday, the top three sides in the top-flight standings were all in action, while another heavyweight outfit moved to within touching distance of the top four.

Chelsea continue to lead the way following a home win over Tottenham Hotspur, while Manchester City remain hot on their heels after proving too strong for Sunderland.

Arsenal are closing fast on the Champions League places having edged out Southampton, but Everton just cannot get going after being held by Hull City.

The Toffees will be hoping that there is more to come from them over the coming weeks, but all of those on show in midweek gave their all to their respective cause in the pursuit of three precious points.
