his weekend offers another packed schedule of Premier League action in the build-up to the winter World Cup.
First up, there was throwback to the 1980s as Nottingham Forest pulled off a shock to beat a Liverpool side hitting form after a slow start to the season 1-0.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Crystal Palace were easily beaten at Everton while Manchester City emerged victorious against Brighton in a somewhat bare 3pm programme.
Later in the afternoon, however, brought us the weekend’s heavyweight clash. Fourth-placed Chelsea entertained Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, with Jorginho and Casemiro scoring in the dying embers of a dramatic draw.
Sunday sees League leaders Arsenal travel to Southampton, Fulham travel to Leeds, managerless Aston Villa entertain Brentford and Wolves play Leicester in a Midlands derby of sorts before Spurs welcome in-form Newcastle to north London.
West Ham’s visit of Bournemouth then wraps up the action on Monday night.
