The five best stats from the Premier League weekend
After weeks of Manchester City leading the way, we now have a new leader at the top of the Premier League. Liverpool’s scintillating 6-1 demolition of Watford put them a point clear at the head of the table, with Chelsea, also winners by a five goal margin moving into second place.
Arsenal and Spurs drew in their North London derby, while Manchester City dropped more points at home against Middlesbrough. United, though, got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win at Swansea, taking them up to sixth place.
At the bottom of the league there were wins for struggling Sunderland and Hull, who remain in the relegation zone. West Brom defeated Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, and Burnley continued their strong start to the season to rise into the top half.
