This is the first time in a very long while, at least since the turn of the year that we have not had any match postponed in a gameweek due Covid-19 related issues or injuries.
Quite a number of talking points from the weekend, from Manchester United's controversial late winner against West Ham, Southampton holding it down against Manchester City to end the champions' winning streak at 12 games an Newcastle United getting only their second league win of the campaign.
Aftermath of the weekend saw the sack of Watford Manager, Claudio Ranieri barely three months after taking over the job to salvage their survival hopes, but things seem no to be working out. The Italian has subsequently been replaced by Roy Hodgson.
19 goals were scored across the 10 centres, an average of 1.9 goals per game, a low return rate compared to recent weeks.
Seven teams got all three points and only Manchester United and Chelsea got home victories against West Ham and Tottenham respectively; all other wins were by away teams and most impressively Newcastle getting to win away at Leeds United. Three draws recorded, one of which was a frustrating barren draw between Arsenal and Burnley.
Here we go!
Watford 0-3 Norwich City
Watford have now gone 10 games in all competitions without a win, drawing 1 and losing 9, and have failed to keep a clean sheet in 30 Premier League games. Disaster
Since May 2013 when Norwich defeated West Brom 4-0, this 3-0 win over Watford is their biggest away win in the league. Long wait.
Everton 0-1 Aston Villa
Everton have only earned 19 points from their 20 league games this season. This is the lowest they have gathered at this stage of the campaign in 25 years. Hard
Brentford 1-2 Wolves
For the first time since 1994, Wolves have started a calendar year with three consecutive wins in the Premier League. New lease
Brentford have now lost 7 home games in the league this season. They are only behind Watford in this aspect, who have themselves lost 8 at home. Bitter home.
In 14 games in all competitions this season, Wolves have kept a clean sheet in the first half of all of them, and only conceded five goals in the first half of games this season. Starters.
Leeds United 0-1 Newcastle United
Newcastle waited for the 10th attempt to register their first away win in the league this season, drawing 3 and losing 6 of the previous 9. Freed.
In 12 visits to Elland Road, the Magpies have won 8 times, with the other four being one draw and three losses. Elland home?
Manchester United 1-0 West Ham United
The Red devils hav won their last 14 home games against West Ham, making it 21 overall wins in 26 over the Hammers at Old Trafford. Hostile ground.
West Ham are winless in the last four of the seven away games, drawing one and winning two. No love on the road.
15 attempts as a manager on a visit to old Trafford, David Moyes is yet to get an away win on the ground with four draws and 11 losses. Moyest.
Southampton 1-1 Manchester City
Kevin De Bruyne has recorded 80 assists in 179 Premier League games, as many as David Beckham had in 266 games in the competition, becoming joint-9th overall in the history of the competition. Genius.
The Saints were undefeated by the Cityzens in their two Premier League fixtures this season. This is the first time they have achieved this feat since the 2002/2003 season. Solid.
Interestingly, despite City's defensive staunchness , they have gone behind against Southampton in 14 Premier League meetings and the Saints were the first team to stop them from winning in their last 13 Premier League games. Penetrator.
Ralph Hassenhuttl's men are now unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games with three wins and five draws. Mary's home.
Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool
Liverpool have won all their Premier League games against Crystal Palace since 2017, a run of 10 league games. Love story.
Patrick Viera has lost his first consecutive home games since taking over at Palace. Breached.
Arsenal 0-0 Burnley
Arsenal are winless in their first five games in 2022 (2 draws, 3 losses), the first time since 1995 that the Gunners have failed to win any of their first five games in a calendar year and have failed to score in four of those for the first time since 2005. Struggling.
In their last 21 Premier League games this season, Burnley have earned just one win, drawing 9 and losing 11 and have recorded the highest number of 0-0 draws (4). Barren.
Leicester City 1-1 Brighton
Joint-low with Manchester City, Brighton have lost just one of their 11 away games in the Premier League, losing three and drawing seven.
Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham
Chelsea have beaten Tottenham four times this season and three times in January, scoring 8 goals and conceding none. Light work.
Tottenham have failed to find the back of the net in their last six Premier League games against Chelsea. Choked.
Mason Mount has been involved in more goals than any other Chelsea player this season with 7 goals and assists each. Wonder boy.
