Manchester City, previously unbeaten, suffered a surprising defeat at the hands of Wolves. Meanwhile, Manchester United faced their fourth loss of the campaign, a shocking defeat as Crystal Palace stunned Old Trafford.

In a historical moment for Luton, they secured their maiden Premier League victory, triumphing over Everton with a score of 2-1 at Goodison Park. It’s difficult to know what to make of Sean Dyche’s team, I honestly thought they’d turned a corner but this result will be a blow.

Newcastle predictably defeated Burnley, but Aston Villa’s 6-1 destruction of Brighton may have been the biggest shock of the weekend.

Tottenham moved into second place in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory against Liverpool. On the face of it, the result would appear impressive. However, Spurs toiled against nine-man Liverpool and only secured the win following a very late Matip own goal.

Given the roller-coaster of results, West Ham will be happy with a steady, predictable 2-0 home win.
