The game has changed with respect to the chase for the Premier League title. After having led for a large part of the season, Liverpool now find themselves playing catch-up to Manchester City.

The race for the remaining two UEFA Champions League spots has also taken a new dimension. Four teams are now battling for the third and fourth positions on the table.

Manchester United's confidence has gone through the roof following their heroics against PSG in the UCL. They alongside Arsenal and Chelsea now have a stuttering Tottenham Hotspur side firmly in their sights.

This game week certainly lived up to the hype. It was kickstarted by an exciting North London Derby that saw Tottenham play out a 1-1 draw with old foes, Arsenal at Wembley.

It was a game that had everything including a controversial penalty converted by Harry Kane.

Crystal Palace continued their recent amazing away form with a 3-1 win at Turf Moor against Burnley. Brighton & Hove beat Huddersfield Town 1-0. A similar scoreline saw Manchester City go past a very defensive Bournemouth side thanks to a Riyad Mahrez strike.

Manchester United edged Southampton 3-2 in a thriller at Old Trafford with Romelu Lukaku getting a brace. Wolves beat Cardiff City 2-0, a similar scoreline occurred at the London Stadium as West Ham zoomed past Newcastle United.

Watford beat Leicester City 2-1 in Brendan Rodgers' first game as manager of the Foxes.
