Tottenham 2-0 Manchester City

Mauricio Pochettino’s men bring the blue side of Manchester back down to earth with an emphatic win which takes his side one point away from the leaders.

This is Pep Guardiola’s first loss as City boss and its a week to forget for the Spaniard, as he has now failed to win twice.

Who's going to win the Premier League?

Manchester United 1-1 Stoke City

Stoke’s Lee Grant denied United from taking all three points with world class saves to prevent Zlatan Ibrahimavic and Jesse Lingard.

Jose Mourinho’s side are now five points off leader’s Man City and will need a performance against Liverpool to enhance the Red Devil’s season.

Swansea 1-2 Liverpool

James Milner’s fourth  penalty of the season takes Liverpool to their fifth consecutive win in all competitions leaving Swansea without a win from their last six.

Leroy Fer is the only bright light in what seems an already doomed season for the Swans with him bagging four goals in seven Premier League appearances.

Burnley 0 –  1 Arsenal

A late controversial goal from Laurent Koscielny takes Arsenal to their fifth successive win and two points away from City.

The late goal means Burnley stay three points away from the relegation zone and with October fixtures against Southampton, Everton and Man Utd, results could become hard to come by.

Hull 0-2 Chelsea

Diego Costa’s sixth Premier League goal helps Antonio Conte’s side stop the plummet with a much needed win over a spirited Hull team.

Hull have only gained one point in their last five games, early signs suggest relegation is looming.

West Ham 1-1 Middlesbrough

Dimitri Payet took on five players to secure a goal of the season contender and a point on what was a gloomy day for the hammers.

After an unbeaten start, Boro are now winless in five and will need a win against Watford if they are to start a bid for survival.

Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace

Romelu Lukaku’s 65th Premier League goal, his first from a free kick put the Toffee’s in good stead, but a Christian Benteke wonder header rescued Palace a point.

Palace may feel aggrieved as key decisions failed to go their way with them having a goal ruled offside.

Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

It was a day for the substitutes as both second half goals came from Watford’s Isaac Success and Bournemouth’s Josh King.

 

Sunderland 1-1 West Brom

Sunderland remain at the foot of the table despite half time substitute Patrick van Aanholt’s late equaliser.

West Brom’s unbeaten run stretches to five and will hope to keep the run going at home to Tottenham.

Leicester 0-0 Southampton

Claude Puel’s Southampton take their run of consecutive clean sheets to six, in a game where the visiting side will be wondering how they did not come away with a win.
