Liverpool hosted Chelsea at the beginning of the round and the match between the two mid-table teams ended with a draw, 0-0, however there were positive signs, as Mudryk made his debut for the London Blues and he made an immediate impression. West Ham beat Everton, 2-0, in a match which cost Frank Lampard his position as manager.

On Sunday, Man City beat Wolves 3-0, with a Haaland hat-trick in order to keep pressure on Arsenal. However it was Arsenal who had the best of days, as they beat Man United, 3-2, with a late winner from Nketiah after a thrilling contest.

Arsenal are first in the the table, with a game in hand and 5 points above Man City. Will this be the season the Gunners retake the Premier League? Newcastle are currently 3rd, with the same amount of points and matches played as 4th placed Man United. Spurs are 5th, with 3 points behind them. Liverpool and Chelsea are all the way back at 9th and 10th.

Southampton and Everton are the two last placed teams, both with 15 points. Wolves and Bournemouth are only a big higher up, both on 17 points. West Ham, Leeds and Leicester all have 18. Things are very close at the bottom.

Team of the Week

Unsurprisingly, Haaland leads the pack from up top. He is partnered by Arsenal striker Nketiah. Another Arsenal player finds his way in this week’s team of the week, as Saka is one of the midfielders, together with Jorginho, Bowen and Gibbs-White from Forest.

At the back we have a Newcastle duo, Schar and Trippier, partnered with Lisandro and Robinho. Guaita is the keeper of choice for this round.
