Chelsea had taken the lead at the top of the Premier League last weekend and, after coming from a goal down, a 2-1 win against Tottenham 2-1 at Stamford Bridge ensured the Blues remained at the summit.

Wins for Liverpool, who ended the Sunderland winning run with a 2-0 victory at Anfield, and Manchester City kept them in second and third, respectively. The City win saw them come from a goal down, with Burnley’s former England keeper Paul Robinson making his first Premier League appearance in some four-years, to beat the Clarets 2-1.

The 3-1 win Arsenal secured, at the Emirates Stadium against Bournemouth, ensured the Gunners kept it very tight at the top. They remain in fourth but only three points separate the top four.

Hull could have moved out of the bottom three with a win against West Brom at the KCOM Stadium, however City had to be content with a point when coming from behind to draw 1-1 with Albion. A draw, with a dramatic penalty in added time, is what Champions Leicester also secured against Middlesbrough. This 2-2 draw keeps both clubs too close to the bottom three for comfort.

Without a shadow of a doubt the most incredible game of the weekend, certainly goal packed, came at the Liberty Stadium when Bob Bradley got his first win as Swansea boss. A 5-4 win took the Swans off the bottom but they remain in the bottom three, whereas Palace are above the relegation zone on goal difference alone now.

Sunday’s early kick-off saw Stoke come away from Vicarage Road with a 1-0 win, moving the Potters up to 11th to extend the run to just one defeat in the last eight games. Watford could have moved up to fifth had they won.

The points were shared between Manchester United, who lost ground on the European places, and West Ham, who remain embroiled in the dogfight at the other end. This ended in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

A game at the St Mary’s Stadium rounded off the action with Southampton, courtesy of a goal in the first minute, beating Everton 1-0 on former Saints boss Ronald Koeman’s return to his old club.
