11:38 am on 29 December 2013

English football side Manchester City have taken over at the top of the Premier League table with a one nil 1-0 home win against Crystal Palace.

Victory took City two points above previous leaders Arsenal, who visit Newcastle United on Monday.

Manchester United closed to within two points of the Champions League places after recording a sixth consecutive victory in all competitions with a 1-0 win at Norwich City.

The win took United level on points with fifth-placed Everton, although they have now played a game more than all of the teams above them apart from City.

In the late game Cardiff City and Sunderland drew 2-2.

Elsewhere, relegation rivals West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion played out a 3-3 draw at Upton Park.

Fulham also remain in the relegation zone after a 6-0 humiliation at Hull City.

Aston Villa were held to a 1-1 draw by Swansea City.
