Premier League week 12 round up

A Big Week

It was a huge weekend in the Premier League, as Liverpool and Manchester City locked horns for the first time this season.

Jurgen Klopp's men extended their advantage at the top to eight points with a memorable win as Leicester are now there nearest challengers, with victory over Arsenal, who's misery continues.

At the bottom, it's beginning to look very worrying for Norwich and Southampton whilst there was a much needed victory for Everton.

Friday

One game on Friday saw Watford finally win their first game of the season, with a 2-0 win at Norwich.

The much welcomed three points moved them off the bottom of the table and in turn demoted there opponents to the position, with Daniel Farke's men now only picking up one point in their last five games.

The Canaries haven't won since beating Manchester City on the 14th of September and things are starting to become desperate now as they seek to retain Premier League status.

Saturday

Chelsea's lunchtime victory over Crystal Palace was their sixth successive League win as Frank Lampard's men go into the international break in third position.

Christian Pulisic continued his good form, scoring the second after Tammy Abaraham opened the scoring for the Blues.

Spurs' disappointing season continues as they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Sheffield United in a game dominated by VAR controversy.

Chris Wilder

George Baldock cancelled out Son's opener for Spurs, who are only 14th. In contrast, it's now five unbeaten for Sheffield United who sit in fifth.

There was breathing space for Marco Silva as his Everton side tasted success on the road for the first time this season.

The Toffee's edged out Southampton 2-1, who will now be seriously considering Ralph Hasenhüttl's position after a fourth loss in five games which leaves the Saints sitting 19th.

After such a promising start to the season, West Ham have now lost four of their last five as Burnley ran out comfortable 3-0 winners at Turf Moor whilst Newcastle made it 2 wins in a row, coming from a goal down to beat Bournemouth 2-1.

Brendan Rodgers Liverpool Leicester City Celtic

Arsenal go into the international break a massive eight points off the top four, as they lost 2-0 to Leicester. The foxes continue their impressive start to the season, with goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison firing Brendan Rodgers' men to a fourth successive win and second position.

Sunday

It was a fourth League win of the season for Manchester United, who saw off Brighton 3-1 at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's men are still nine points off the top four however and will need to continue winning games if they are to bridge that gap.

Meanwhile, in the Midlands Derby, it was Wolves who came out on top, beating rivals Aston Villa 2-1.

Goals from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez were enough as they climb up to eighth. It was a third loss in a row however for Aston Villa and now all of a sudden Dean Smith's side will be looking over their shoulders, as they dropped to 17th.

Ruben Neves Wolves

In the big game of the week, it was Liverpool who came away with a huge three points, beating Pep Guardiola's Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield.

Despite a strong start from City, a cracking strike from Fabinho gave the reds the lead before Mo Salah's header doubled it before the break.

Pep Guardiola Manchester City Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Sadio Mane all but confirmed victory in the second half before Bernardo Silva pulled one back for the Citizens.

There was more VAR contravisory, with Pep Guardiola feeling his side could have been awarded two penalties.

It is already City's third loss of the season and they are now fourth, nine points off Liverpool who have their biggest chance yet of finally winning that elusive Premier League trophy.
