The Whites’ 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon was one of 10 top-flight matches to take place over an action-packed few days.

Scroll and click through the pages to see which teams, managers and players shone and struggled over the weekend:

With West Ham leading 1-0, Lookman had the opportunity to level things up for Fulham from the penalty spot in the eighth minute of injury time. You know what happened… yep, his panenka spot-kick fell straight into the hands of Lukasz Fabianski.

Kane netted his 150th Premier League goal in timely fashion with an 88th-minute winner at West Bromwich Albion. Stat: Only Alan Shearer (212) and Sergio Aguero (217) scored their 150th top-flight goal in fewer appearances.
Gabby Agbonlahor hit out at Solskjaer after the Man Utd boss ranted about the club’s fixture schedule. “Just get on with it," he said. “You’ve got a big squad, that’s why you get to register 25 players for the Premier League season so use them.”
Aside from VAR, Eze stole the show in Crystal Palace’s 4-1 win against Leeds with a first goal and assist for his new club following his £20m move from QPR. It’s just the start, insists the 22-year-old.
Only two of the four teams to collect one point from their opening eight top-flight matches have stayed up - and former Everton striker Tim Cahill is backing the Blades to do just that because of Chris Wilder.
Watkins maintained his impressive form with two goals in Aston Villa’s 3-0 win at the Emirates, but that did come at the expense of upsetting his family, who both support Arsenal. The 24-year-old himself is a boyhood Gunners fan.
The BBC pundit got it all wrong about Newcastle fans in his defence of Steve Bruce - poorly taking a cheap dig: “They’re never happy, they want to win the Champions League but they’re in it unfortunately but such is life.”
The Foxes are back on top of the Premier League with memories from their 2015/16 heroics already flooding back. In fact, Brendan Rodgers’ men are three points better off than they were in the title-winning season…
We think Jermaine Beckford speaks for almost every football fan (except Crystal Palace fans maybe!) when he explained how “ridiculous” and “nonsensical” THAT Patrick Bamford offside was. “Bang out of order,” he ranted on BBC Final Score.
The Saints briefly topped the table after their 2-0 win over Newcastle on Friday and pundit Tony Cascarino has likened Ralph Hassenhuttl to Marcelo Bielsa in terms of how he has the ability to improve players.
