Ledley King's Talking Points
Spurs earned a comfortable 2-0 win at Leicester with goals from Son, who has been sensational over the past few weeks, and Dele Alli, who has now scored 50 goals for Spurs in all competitions. It’s the club’s best ever start to a Premier League season, and now it’s time to gear up for a huge Champions League clash in Barcelona.
Chelsea bounced back from a disappointing mid-week defeat against Wolves to end Man City's 21-game unbeaten PL run. It was Sarri’s first triumph over Guardiola, knocking City off top spot in the table. Despite the result, Pep insisted his side did not have an off day: “In general, we were fantastic. I don't have any regrets.”
Liverpool have claimed top spot after a 4-0 romp at Bournemouth that featured a Mo Salah Hat-trick. The Reds have equalled their best ever unbeaten run of 17 games, and are now the only remaining unbeaten side in England’s top four leagues this season.
Man United recorded their biggest Premier League win of the season as they brushed aside Fulham in a 4-1 victory. It was United’s first victory in five league games, while Fulham have now conceded 40 goals in 16 games. "In the first half it was 11 lambs against 11 wolves. The wolves ate the lambs," said Cottagers boss Claudio Ranieri.
Leeds came from behind to beat QPR 2-1 at Elland Road and stay hot on the heels of league leaders Norwich. Kemar Roofe hit his ninth and 10th goals of the season to complete the comeback, putting Leeds five points clear of the playoffs.
Portsmouth extended their lead at the top of League One to six points after securing a 2-0 win over Southend, while second-placed Sunderland’s game at Accrington was abandoned late in the second half as heavy rain made the pitch unplayable.
Sol Campbell suffered defeat in his first league game as manager of Macclesfield on Saturday. Colchester were the 1-0 victors in Essex, meaning Macclesfield are six points adrift from safety in League Two, with just three wins in 21 games.
