Chelsea made it seven wins on the bounce as they ended Tottenham’s unbeaten Premier League start on Saturday.

The Blues fell behind to Christian Eriksen’s 11th minute strike at Stamford Bridge, yet goals from Pedro and Victor Moses secured the hosts a tenth win of the campaign, and in turn regained them top spot in the division.

This was all after Manchester City and then Liverpool reached the summit on Saturday afternoon, with Pep Guardiola’s City winning 2-1 at Burnley in the early kick-off before Jurgen Klopp’s Reds overcame a stubborn Sunderland 2-0 at Anfield.

Arsenal kept the pressure on the top three with a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday, but Manchester United dropped more points at Old Trafford after being held by West Ham, with manager Jose Mourinho sent to the stands for kicking a bottle.

Ronald Koeman suffered an unhappy return to Southampton as his Everton side lost 1-0 at St Mary’s, while Watford remain eighth despite a 1-0 home defeat to Mark Hughes’ Stoke.

There was a nine-goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium as Bob Bradley secured his first win as Swansea boss in incredible circumstances, as his side beat a struggling Crystal Palace 5-4 to pile more pressure on under-fire Alan Pardew.

Elsewhere, Hull held West Brom to a 1-1 draw at the KCOM Stadium, while champions Leicester continue to struggle as they could only manage a 2-2 draw at home to newly-promoted Middlesbrough.

Some loved the spectacle…

… while others were less than complementary about the quality of football on show…
