It was thrilling action in English Premier League which witnessed engrossing matches through the weekend. At the end of it, we are left with intensely competed table at both ends.

Bournemouth 0 – 0 Tottenham

Tottenham had a great chance to go top, having started the weekend fixtures earlier than title rivals. But frustratingly for Mauricio Pochettino side, they dropped points once again – this time to a 0-0 stalemate at Bournemouth. It was a fierce encounter and Eddie Howe men gave nothing away to earn a well-deserved point.

Arsenal 0 – 0 Middlesbrough

The high-flying Gunners had a reality check too when they were held to a goal-less draw at home by Middlesbrough. The hosts enjoyed more than 70% of possession but it came to naught as Aitor Karanka’s men came up with a brilliant rear-guard action to deny them. The point is much more valuable to Borough than for the Gunners.

Leicester City 3 – 1 Crystal Palace

Claudio Ranieri’s decision to omit Jamie Vardy from his starting XI paid off in spectacular fashion as goals from Ahmed Musa, Shinji Okazaki and Christian Fuchs powered the Champions. Cabaye earned a late consolation for the visitors but the win is very crucial for the Foxes whose domestic struggles seem to come to an end.

West Ham 1 – 0 Sunderland

Poor David Moyes! He must have been counting a point deep into injury time only for Winston Reid to slap a goal and shut the door on the hopes. West Ham recorded two consecutive wins for the first time since April and Slaven Bilic’s joyous celebrations on the sidelines was an epitome of relief.

Hull City 0 – 2 Stoke City

Xherdan Shaqiri scored twice for the Potters as Stoke overpowered the beleaguered Hull City 2-0. The win moved Stoke out of the bottom three and for the first time in the season, Mark Hughes can heave a huge sigh of relief. Hull are without a league win since 20th August and look to be clawed into a quagmire of troubles.

Other matches

Swansea celebrated the home debut of new manager Bob Bradley with a tenacious 0 – 0 draw against Watford. It was another encouraging performance from the Swans and the hopes on Bradley’s reign are already rocketing up.

Burnley surprised high-flyers Everton 2-1 at home with a last minute goal from Scott Arfield. Ronald Koeman’s side were the better side for most part of the game but came out with no points from the encounter.

Liverpool survived some anxious second-half comeback by West Bromwich Albion to edge out 2-1 winners. The win took them close to the top and Jurgen Klopp’s men look destined to stay there for long.
