Elsewhere, there were wins for Southampton, Stoke City, Sunderland, West Ham United and Aston Villa, who recorded their first victory in 19 league matches.
But in a round of fantastic midweek games, who were the top performers?
Here’s Shoot’s Top 5 Premier League Players of the Week…..
5. Dimitri Payet (West Ham United)
The Frenchman shone in an inspirational performance as West Ham came from behind to win 3-1 at Bournemouth, grabbing both an assist and a goal at the Vitality Stadium.
Midway through the second half, Payet struck a sensational free-kick which clipped the underside of Artur Boruc’s crossbar to level the scores at 1-1.
He then showed great skill to take the ball past two Cherries defenders before crossing to set up Enner Valencia to put the Hammers 2-1 ahead.
Valencia then scored a free-kick of his own as Slaven Bilic’s side moved up to the dizzy heights of fifth place in the Premier League, leapfrogging Manchester United in the process.
