Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League on Saturday with a dramatic 4-2 victory at Aston Villa, replacing Manchester City, who were held to a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest later that day.

Sunday saw Marcus Rashford continue his remarkable scoring form with a brace as third-placed Manchester United won 3-0 against Leicester, and Tottenham moved into the top four with a 2-0 win over West Ham.

England’s Lionesses saw off Italy 2-1 in the Arnold Clark Cup with Rachel Daly netting twice, and James Anderson starred as England’s cricketers completed victory in the first Test against New Zealand.
