Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - Premier League
Harry Kane bagged a brace against Liverpool on Sunday

Another exciting weekend of Premier League football came to an end with some of the top teams failing to get their desired results. In what was the biggest upset of the weekend, Manchester United succumbed to their first defeat of the season at the hands of newly-promoted Huddersfield Town.

Meanwhile, It was clockwork for their cross-town rivals Manchester City, as they raced to an impressive 3-0 victory over Burnley. With that win, Pep Guardiola's side are now five points clear of rivals and second-placed Manchester United.

Elsewhere, Chelsea were taken the distance as they overcome Watford, while Arsenal and Everton played out a thrilling seven-goal encounter, with the Gunners winning 5-2. In the week's final encounter between Tottenham and Liverpool, the North London outfit proved they are worthy title contenders as they ran riot over Jurgen Klopp's men, beating them 4-1.

With a number of star performers over the three days, we take a look at the team of the week:

Formation - (3-4-3):

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur)

While Hugo Lloris was not one of only four goalkeepers to keep a clean sheet this weekend, he played a key role in restricting Liverpool to just a solitary goal in Spurs' 4-1 thumping of the Reds at Wembley.

The France and Tottenham number one made a string of impressive saves throughout the contest. His stop of Coutinho's left-footed shot particularly stood out as the Brazilian's strike seemed destined for goal.

Throughout the game, Lloris' ball distribution and handling was unquestioned. He looked calm with the ball at his feet and also marshalled the three centre-backs in front of him with authority.
