Premier League leaders Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley on Sunday but still moved ten points clear at the summit.
Antonio Conte’s men took an early lead at Turf Moor through Pedro, but Robbie Brady’s stunning free-kick secured a deserved point for the Clarets.
Although the Blues dropped points, they have moved another point clear at the top following Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield, with Sadio Mane bagging both goals in an excellent display from Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Arsenal are up to third courtesy of a controversial 2-0 win over Hull at the Emirates Stadium, with Alexis Sanchez bagging both to go to the top of Premier League scoring charts with 16 for the campaign.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United kept the pressure on the top four with a comfortable 2-0 success over Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday, while Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have the chance to move up to second this evening when they travel to out-of-form Bournemouth.
At the bottom, Swansea picked up a third league win in four matches over an out-of-sorts Leicester, who fall to 17th after a fifth successive loss, while all three teams in the relegation zone lost, with Hull losing at Arsenal, Crystal Palace going down 1-0 at Stoke, and David Moyes’ Sunderland thumped 4-0 at home by Southampton.
Elsewhere, Middlesbrough held Everton to a goalless draw at the Riverside Stadium, while West Ham and West Brom shared a 2-2 draw at a bitterly-cold London Stadium on Saturday.
So, on what was a fascinating weekend of action in the top-flight, many supporters took to Twitter to express their views on the matches, with Chelsea fans far from impressed with their side’s showing at Burnley yet thrilled to get a point from the encounter…

No problem with a draw away at Burnley considering it was probably the worst team performance for a long time. #CFC

And many are revelling in the impact Mane has had on the side, both on Saturday and indeed since his summer arrival from Southampton…
Sadio Mane is a baller. He seemed determined to ruin Ben Davies and his goals were very well taken. Brilliant performance. #LFC
