The Premier League this weekend yet again produced some enthralling moments with teams from around the points table fighting hard for results around the country.
The top 4 teams all managed to post comfortable victories on the night while Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United were left frustrated from a round of fixtures that has established a few places in the points table.
With the round done and dusted, let’s take a look at 10 talking points from the games before moving on:
Nothing comes easy at Turf Moor:
As Manchester City found out at the weekend, Sean Dyche’s Burnley are one of the hardest teams to break down at home in the league this season. A brace from Sergio Aguero on either side of the break got his side to a victory from a goal down inside 20 minutes on the night. Surely, Burnley are not going to lose too many games at that Turf Moor this season.
Dawson earns the Tigers a point:
Hull City are reeling at the bottom of the points table desperately in search of points and club skipper Michael Dawson scored a second half goal to get his team back into the game. They managed to held on with their home support to take an important point from the Baggies this week.
Gunners back to winning ways:
After a couple of disappointing results, Arsenal, managed to get all three points this weekend from a crunch tie against the Cherries at home. Sanchez opened the scoring for the home side while Wilson pulled one back for the visitors before half time. However, Theo Walcott and Sanchez scored on the other side of the break also to take away all three points and consolidate their place at the top of the table.
Marten de Roon costs Boro a couple:
The Middlesbrough defender was superb all night against the likes of Slimani and Mahrez but right at the end, he managed to pull down Wes Morgan in the penalty area to give Leicester their second penalty of the game leaving Negredo’s brace to go to waste as both teams shared a point each on the night.
Origi fires Liverpool home:
The Belgian came up with brilliant goal from a difficult angle to break the deadlock against Sunderland at Anfield at the weekend. The Black Cats made it really hard for the Reds to break them up but James Milner also found the back of the net (penalty) to give the Reds a comfortable 2-0 victory at the end. Injuries to Coutinho and Firmino are the only issues from this game for Liverpool.
Match of the season:
In what is easily the game of the season so-far, Swansea City managed to steal all three points from Crystal Palace, in a crazy game of football that saw 7 goals score in the last 25 minutes of the game. Leroy Fer and Fernando Llorente scored a brace each to steal the victory right at the end with the latter scoring twice in stoppage time to deny Palace even a point from this mind-blowing encounter.
Breached but not beaten:
Tottenham Hotspur fell to their first loss of the season this weekend on their trip to the Stamford Bridge. Chelsea conceded their first goal in 600 minutes of top flight football when Christian Eriksen scored a stunner but goals from Pedro and Victor Moses was enough for Chelsea to win their 7th consecutive game this season.
Gomes gives Stoke all three points:
The Watford goal keeper Heurelho Gomes had a day to forget as he scored the only goal of the game against Stoke City this weekend. Gomes could only push Charlie Adam’s headed effort into his own net and that goal was enough for the Potters to take all three points and continue climbing the top of the table.
Mourinho left frustrated:
The Portuguese manager has not had the best times in England since his move to Manchester United and was yet again sent off from the technical area after showing dissent towards the referee. And all this while, his players were struggling to break a West Ham defense that has been one of the worst this season.
Fitting welcome for Koeman:
The Everton manager was back at the St Marys for the first time since making the shift to the Merseyside and he got a fitting welcome at the South Coast this weekend as Claude Puel’s side stole all three points on the night thanks to a first minute goal from Charlie Austin. This win takes Southampton into the 10th place in the point table.

Liverpool exited the Champions League at the round of 16 courtesy of losing both legs to Atletico Madrid. The Spanish side created very little in attack against a far stronger Liverpool team, but somehow managed to score four goals. The Champions League now moves into…
