The Premier League season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

Chelsea continue to lead the way ahead of Arsenal – a very small gap is growing below them. Swansea, Hull and bottom placed Sunderland continue to hold those unwanted relegation places.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played.


Saturday 10th December 2016 – Premier League
Watford 3-2 Everton 12:30
Arsenal 3-1 Stoke City 15:00
Burnley 3-2 Bournemouth 15:00
Hull City 3-3 Crystal Palace 15:00
Swansea City 3-0 Sunderland 15:00
Leicester City 4-2 Manchester City 17:30

Sunday 11th December 2016 – Premier League
Chelsea 1-0 West Bromwich Albion 12:00
Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur 14:15
Southampton 1-0 Middlesbrough 14:15
Liverpool 2-2 West Ham United 16:30

Watford went into the meeting with Everton having lost three of their last four games. They got back to winning ways with a 3-2 win at Vicarage Road to extend the Toffees’ run to the one win in 10.

As Chelsea didn’t play until the Sunday Arsenal knew a win against Stoke could take them top. This is exactly what happened as the Gunners came from a goal down to beat the Potters 3-1 in the end.

Home form continues to prove crucial for Burnley as they collected all three points against former boss Eddie Howe. The Clarets beat AFC Bournemouth 3-2 to move to within a place and one point of the 12th placed Cherries.

A game that swung one way then the other ended with Hull and Crystal Palace play out a six goal thriller. Palace secured a much-needed win last weekend but the points were shared at the KCOM Stadium after a 3-3 draw.

The goals continue to flow in games involving Swansea as 17 have been seen in their last three! On this occasion the Swans scored three without replay when seeing off relegation rivals Sunderland 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

Goals suddenly flew in for Leicester as well in the late kick off on Saturday! An emphatic first half display from the champions eventually resulted in a 4-2 win over title chasing Manchester City, Jamie Vardy grabbing his first hat trick for the Foxes.

A very favourable scoreline on Sunday was 1-0 as three of the four games played ended that way, the home side victorious in all cases as it happens.

Chelsea battled to a 1-0 win against a West Brom side that had won three of the last four. The Blues’ win at Stamford Bridge took them to the top of the Premier League once again.

A run of three successive league draws came to an end when Manchester United dealt Tottenham’s title hopes a blow at Old Trafford. United closed to within three points of 5th placed Spurs, now 10 points adrift of the leaders.

Southampton reacted positively to the Europa League exit with a 1-0 win against Middlesbrough that pushed the Saints into the top half of the table.

Liverpool would have hoped for a reaction to the 4-3 defeat against Bournemouth a week earlier. However, they saw another blow to their title hopes when they dropped two points against struggling West Ham in a 2-2 draw at Anfield.
