The Premier League title race has swung Manchester City’s way after a series of hugely significant results this midweek.
After Liverpool were beaten by Leicester on Tuesday night, Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton 24 hours later and that allowed City to open up an eight-point lead at the top by beating Brentford.
Two more fixtures feel victim to Covid postponements, with Arsenal’s meeting with Wolves and Leeds’ clash with Aston Villa both postponed.
Tottenham saw their improvement under Antonio Conte lose a little momentum as they drew with ten-man Southampton, but West Ham and Crystal Palace both enjoyed comprehensive wins.
The gameweek rounded off with Manchester United beating Burnley on Thursday night.
