Manchester City conceded their coveted spot in the English Premier League's top four to Tottenham on Saturday after Mark Hughes side were held to a 3-3 draw by Burnley on Saturday.

It was a fifth consecutive draw for City, who slip back to fifth after a run that has cast doubt on their ability to break into English football's Champions League elite.

Robbie Keane and Tom Huddlestone were on the mark for Tottenham as Harry Redknapp's side moved up to fourth place with a 2-0 win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

With league leaders Chelsea entertaining Manchester United on Sunday, Arsenal have the chance to move ahead of United into second place in the table with victory in their evening fixture at struggling Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa overran struggling Bolton Wanderers in a 5-1 rout at Villa Park while Blackburn Rovers lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with a 3-1 win over bottom side Portsmouth.

Burnley's draw at Manchester City was their first point on the road since their return to the top flight.
