Manchester United now sit at the top with 33 points, with their neighbours City still just one point behind. Early leaders, Chelsea are now seven points of the pace after another tedious display against Fulham- which resulted in a 0 -0 draw, again. Rafael Benitez is still looking for his first Chelsea goal.

Tottenham saw off Liverpool at White Hart Lane after Bale chipped in with two goals- one for the Londoner, followed by an own-goal for their Northern rivals. Despite his own-goal, Bale was hailed as 'amazing' by Andre Villas-Boas. Victory for the north London side means they go fourth, ahead of both Arsenal and Everton.
