3 Up, 3 Down: Featuring Everton and Stoke stars
After the tedium of another international break, the Premier League returned this weekend treating fans to some full throttle football across nine matches.
Bournemouth were the weekend’s outstanding performers, hitting six past struggling Hull City and playing some stunning football in the process.
At the top of the table Manchester City stumbled slightly with a draw at home to a valiant Everton side. Arsenal drew level with them after defeating Swansea, but Tottenham lost the chance to go top after a draw with West Brom.
Champions Leicester continued to struggle after losing at Chelsea, but West Ham pulled themselves out of the mire with a win at Crystal Palace. Elsewhere, there were wins for Watford, Stoke and Southampton, whose seasons all look as if they are starting to gather some momentum.
So who was particularly good and bad in this week’s 3 up 3 down?
