Manchester City 3-0 Fulham
A certain Leroy Sane made a dream return to the side after guiding Manchester City to a 3-0 victory over Fulham.
The champions keep pace now with the pace-setters in Chelsea and Liverpool, with David Silva and Raheem Sterling contributing to the victory.
Fulham on the other hand, remain in dangerous territory, just a few points separating them and the basement dwellers.
Bournemouth 4-2 Leicester City
Bournemouth moved into fifth position after seeing off a ten-man Leicester City 4-2 to keep track with the front-runners.
A double from Ryan Fraser, Josh King from the spot and one from Adam Smith was enough for the points despite the late consolation strikes from James Maddison and Marc Albrighton.
Leicester captain who not so long ago lifted the title, Wes Morgan got his marching orders midway in the second half.
Huddersfield 0-1 Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace recorded a morale boosting victory over Huddersfield on their return from the international break.
The win takes them in the top-half and puts their objective for a European spot at the least on track thanks to Wilfred Zaha’s first half effort.
Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal
Arsenal continued its improvement under their new boss, with a 2-1 victory over the relegation-dwindled Newcastle United on Tyneside.
Granit Xhaka got them up and running before Mesut Ozil joined in on the act, despite the last-gasp effort from Ciaran Clark at the other end proving to be of no barrier.
