A definitive analysis of the Premier League weekend

A definitive analysis of the Premier League weekend”

Manchester City will go into next week's hotly anticipated Derby against Manchester United eight points clear at the top of the Premier League.

But it was one-way traffic from then on, as Eden Hazard fired in a rebound to pull his side level before Alvaro Morata nodded in a cross from fit again Victor Moses to give the Blues the lead going into the interval.

While Chelsea have lost ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City, Antonio Conte's side are well-placed in the chasing pack to pounce should the Citizens falter. The goals came early with Christian Kabasele's opener for Watford cancelled out by Son Heung-min. Emre Can broke the deadlock after half an hour and a double from Roberto Firmino made it 3-0.

The Brazilian fired in a low free-kick, before forcing an own-goal from Lewis Dunk after driving 30 yards with the ball.

Demarai Gray got on the end of Riyad Mahrez's cross to give Leicester a 1-0 win over Burnley that continued the Foxes' bright start under Claude Puel.

Sam Allardyce, overseeing his first match since he was confirmed as the new Everton manager, saw his side beat Huddersfield 2-0 for their second consecutive win as they pulled decisively away from the relegation zone.

Pep Guardiola says he felt confident his Manchester City side would find a victory against West Ham and believes it's vital they maintain their momentum. They keep finding a way to win, but are they looking more vulnerable now than at any time this season, and can Manchester United exploit those vulnerabilities next weekend?

But they come up against an Arsenal team who have won all seven of their home matches this term and United have a poor record in recent matches against fellow members of the "Big Six".

With City home to West Ham United on Sunday, and Arsenal and Manchester United facing each other later on Saturday, Liverpool showed their continuing menace by thumping Brighton and Hove Albion 5-1.
