There were more wobbles at the top of the Premier League as Liverpool and Tottenham were held and Chelsea lost, while the Manchester derby was a goalless bore draw.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at five things we learned from this weekend’s top-flight action.
Champions League hangover
No end to Liverpool injury misery
Another day, another injury blow for Liverpool. Diogo Jota has been on fire since his £41million move from Wolves in September, scoring nine goals in 17 games. But Jota suffered a knee injury on Champions League duty in midweek and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has had to manage an injury crisis during the Reds’ title defence, confirmed that the 24-year-old will be spending six to eight weeks on the sidelines. Oh, and central defender Joel Matip suffered a back spasm at Craven Cottage.
Manchester is grey
Little practice makes perfect
Soucek’s a Happy Hammer
Having been described as ‘David Moyes’ new Fellaini’, Tomas Soucek underlined the point in West Ham’s 2-1 win at Leeds. The Czech Republic midfielder channelled his inner Marouane Fellaini to power home his third header since making his Premier League debut in February, and only Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Harry Kane have scored more headers in the competition in that time. No team has also scored more from set-pieces (excluding penalties) this season than the happy Hammers.
