Claudio Ranieri’s men started off from where they left in the Champions League and displayed another fine performance in the Premier League. Although the focus is diverted but Leicester are bouncing back in search of a Champions League spot this time round as well.
Pep Guardiola became only the second manager in Premier League history after Jose Mourinho to win 5 opening fixtures. The match showcased the tale of two midfielders, the rise of Kevin De Bruyne and the decline of Jack Wilshere.

This was a rather surprising result for Hammers, placing them in the bottom-half of the table after a shocking 4-2 defeat at the hands of West Brom. With 4 goals down, West Ham tried to pick-up but they left it too late and the two goals scored served nothing more than consolation.
Ronald Koeman has transformed a beautifully composed Everton side into a team with winning mentality. To put it in perspective, its four in a row for Everton, while Gareth Barry also scored in his 600th Premier League appearance.
Watford waited for almost three decades to acknowledge a win against Manchester United. On the contrary, things are getting worst for Jose Mourinho as the hefty amount spent in the transfer market is not paying off.

Finally a win for Southampton as the Saints defeated Swansea with a narrow margin and not to forget a clean sheet after 16 games. Things are looking bright for Southampton with 2 wins in a row in all competitions. Time to bounce back for Saints!
The array of poor performances from Stoke City keeps getting worse and with their current form, a relegation spot is guaranteed. Eagles did nothing special but made the day even worse for Porter’s.
Spurs continued their impressive run against the Black Cats with 1 goal to nil despite having 19 shots on target. Tottenham is enjoying their unbeaten run in the Premier League, hoping to land a bet for the title.
