Chelsea ended Manchester City's unbeaten start to the season by defeating them 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, in what was the headline result of the weekend in the Premier League.

Courtesy of that, Liverpool moved to the top of the league after their 4-0 trouncing of Bournemouth. Mohamed Salah scored a hattrick in that game, as the Reds claimed an easy three points.

London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham also claimed wins, as they defeated Huddersfield and Leicester City respectively. Manchester United gave their home fans something to cheer about when the defeated Fulham 4-1. The result meant that Claudio Ranieri's side is rooted to the bottom.

Burnley claimed a vital 1-0 win over Brighton which lifted them out of the relegation zone. Cardiff won their third consecutive home game, as they beat Southampton 1-0. Saints' new manager Ralph Hassenhuttl is not off to the best of starts.

Wolves won dramatically at Newcastle with a late winner, and Everton rounded off the matches by claiming a gasp 2-2 draw with Watford at Goodison Park on Monday night.

The fixtures saw a host of great individual performances as well. On that note, here is the team of the week from game week 16 of the Premier League.

Goalkeeper: Ben Foster

Goalkeepers can rarely claim that they won points on their own for the team, but Foster did just that for Watford. The Hornets had just taken the lead, and Everton were granted a penalty. Up stepped Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Foster pulled off a great save with his legs to deny him.

He made three saves throughout the game, but his penalty save was the most important contribution. Foster was not really at fault for Everton's last-minute equaliser, but he clinched a point for Watford nonetheless.
