A Sunday goal glut ended with champions Manchester City drawing a third successive Premier League game as they were held 3-3 at home by injury-hit Tottenham Hotspur to slip to third place in the table, three points behind leaders Arsenal.
The five games produced 24 goals, the last of which was headed home by Spurs winger Dejan Kulusevski in the 90th-minute at the Etihad Stadium to deny Pep Guardiola's side victory.
Liverpool moved a point above City into second spot as they scored twice late on to turn around a 3-2 deficit at home to Fulham and win 4-3 with Trent Alexander-Arnold sealing victory.
Ten-man Chelsea beat Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2 at Stamford Bridge while fourth-placed Aston Villa needed a late Ollie Watkins goal to scrape a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth.
West Ham United drew 1-1 at home to Crystal Palace.
City have now gone three games without a win in the league for the first time in six years as once again their nemesis Tottenham caused Guardiola's side a headache.
Substitute Jack Grealish's 81st-minute goal looked to have secured City victory but Kulusevski headed in Brennan Johnson's cross to reward Ange Postecoglou's side's risk-taking approach and move them back up to fifth, six points off the pace.
In a frantic conclusion Guardiola's side were furious deep in stoppage time when Grealish was through on goal but play was stopped for a foul on Erling Haaland during the build-up.
Liverpool scored two late goals a minute apart just when defeat loomed against Fulham at Anfield.
The hosts' Wataru Endo scored his first Premier League goal in the 87th minute before Alexander-Arnold struck the winner.
Chelsea's Enzo Fernandez scored twice, his first Premier League goals, as they held off Brighton in an absorbing Stamford Bridge duel while Levi Colwill also got his first league goal.
Conor Gallagher was sent off on the stroke of halftime for a second yellow card.
Bournemouth were on the brink of a valuable home win against Villa but Watkins headed a 90th-minute leveller.
"This point is not the best but it is not the worst," Villa manager Unai Emery said. (AFP)
