Chelsea continued their impressive form this weekend but it’s Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool who sit top of the Premier League going into the international break.
The Reds thumped Watford 6-1 at Anfield on Sunday to overtake Antonio Conte’s Blues at the top of the division, who assented to the summit courtesy of a 5-0 thrashing of Everton on Saturday night.
Their rises to the top were made possible by Manchester City’s frustrating 1-1 draw at home to Middlesbrough on Saturday, with Marten de Roon’s late header extending City’s winless home league run to three matches.
Arsenal also failed to go top after they were held to a 1-1 draw by North London rivals Tottenham, while Manchester United got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win over a rapidly-declining Swansea.
Sunderland picked up their first victory of the campaign at Bournemouth on Saturday, while there were also important wins for Hull, West Brom, and Burnley over Southampton, Leicester, and Crystal Palace respectively.
West Ham and Stoke shared the spoils in the weekend’s other match, and there was a mixture of good and bad over the course of the weekend.
