Everton put back-to-back League Cup and Premier League defeats behind them by getting a draw, but having been ahead at Goodison Park the Toffees will be disappointed not to have seen our a win with Crystal Palace happy to go away with a one-all draw.

Pressure on Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin increased as Liverpool came from a goal-down to see off the Swans thanks to a late James Milner penalty that kept the promising start the Reds have made going, taking them at the club of play Saturday, up to second.

A reaction to Chelsea’s heavy defeat at Arsenal was wanted and it came as they scored twice in succession in the second half at Hull to come away from the KCOM Stadium with a two-nil win.

Struggling Sunderland and West Ham both came from a goal-down to pick up (potentially) crucial points against West Brom and Middlesbrough, respectively, to at least know they’ll go into the international break with a point, which is something Watford also do as they twice came from behind to draw two-two with Bournemouth at Vicarage Road.

Talking of ‘potentially crucial’ the equaliser from Stoke at Manchester United, with a first point collected at Old Trafford against them since 1980, could be a massive turning point in the Potters’ season going into the break.

Ahead of the weekend both Tottenham and Manchester City had unbeaten runs, only Spurs can now claim this after they saw off Man City two-nil at White Hart Lane in a match they could even afford a penalty miss in.

It was almost literally the last kick of the match but Arsenal’s dramatic late, and somewhat controversial winner, at Burnley saw the Gunners close the gap on the likes of City after a one-nil win at Turf Moor.
