Roundup of a dramatic matchweek which saw plenty of drama and movement at both ends of the Premier League table. 

Ex Manchester City player, Cole Palmer netted a 95th minute equaliser against his former team to snatch a 4-4 draw for Chelsea in a topsy-turvey encounter against the league leaders, who looked to had sealed victory with Rodri’s 86th minute deflected strike.

Mohamed Salah’s brace – of which his second goal marked the Egyptian’s 200th goal in English football, plus Diogo Jota’s curled strike saw Liverpool climb to second with a 3-0 demolition of Brentford at Anfield.

Goals from Leander Trossard, William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko saw Arsenal sit third despite Fabio Vieira’s red card following a 3-1 home win over rock-bottom Burnley, during which Josh Brownhill briefly equalised for the Clarets early in the second half.

Tottenham suffered a second consecutive defeat and dropped to fourth after they lost 2-1 at Wolves after having led through Brennan Johnson’s first goal for the club, only for Pablo Sarabia to equalise then provide the assist for Mario Lemina’s 97th minute winner for the hosts.

Down in the relegation zone, Sheffield United moved off the foot of the table with a 1-1 draw at Brighton after Adam Webster deflected Jayden Bogle’s cross into his own net, with the Blades having initially fallen behind to Simon Adingra’s sixth minute strike.

Dominic Solanke’s brace saw Bournemouth climb out of the bottom three with a 2-0 home win over a lacklustre Newcastle United.

Luton consequently dropped to third bottom after they fell to a narrow defeat at Manchester United, as Victor Lindelof struck a 59th minute winner for the Red Devils who were often frustrated by the Hatters’ defensive resilience.

Elsewhere, fifth-placed Aston Villa kept pace with the top four after Antonee Robinson’s own-goal sent them on their way to an eventual 3-1 home win over Fulham, with John McGinn and Ollie Watkins also on the scoresheet for Villa whilst Raul Jimenez netted his first goal for Fulham.

Tomas Soucek headed in a 88th minute winner for West Ham in a dramatic 3-2 thriller at home against Nottingham Forest, which saw Lucas Paqueta put the Hammers ahead only for Taiwo Awoniyi and Anthony Elanga to put Forest ahead until Jarrod Bowen equalised with a header.

Finally, Idrissa Gueye netted a 86th minute winner for Everton in a 3-2 triumph at Crystal Palace, having led through Vitaliy Mykolenko and Abdoulaye Doucoure only to be pegged back twice by goals from Eberechi Eze and Odsonne Edouard.
