This week saw some important, and record-breaking, results.

Manchester City took are still trying to keep pace with Liverpool, managing a 3-0 win over Aston Villa despite a late red card for Fernandinho. Liverpool also won this week after falling behind to Tottenham. The Reds took almost twice as many shots as the Spurs with more than three times as many on target reinforcing doubts about Tottenham.

There were draws to be found at Watford, West Ham, Newcastle and Arsenal. The most exciting was at the Emirates where the Gunners went 2-0 up in the first ten minutes before Palace came from behind to level it.

Brighton won in a tight game against Everton courtesy of an own goal from Lucas Digne in the 90+4′ and moved further away from relegation. Burnley may have scored two goals in the last five minutes of their game against Chelsea but it was not enough to overturn a four goal lead including a perfect hattrick from Christian Pulisic.

Manchester United made a return to better form with a 3-1 away win over Norwich, their first away win in the league this year. Tim Krul shone for the Canaries, making two penalty saves to keep the score from being too embarrassing.

The big match of the round was probably not the one people were expecting. 1-0 down after 12 minutes Southampton saw Ryan Bertrand sent off for an early shower, maybe at that point they still had hope. At half time the score was 5-0. Leicester went on to score nine in all and equal the record for largest ever Premier League win and break the record for the largest away win. Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez both put three past Angus Gunn. The Foxes are continuing to make a case for continental football in a year when the big clubs aren’t performing as well as they used to.
