Leicester close on the big guns and just one pick from the champions: Premier League team of the week

Round 12 of the Premier League saw some surprise results - and another nightmare for Arsenal

An astounding round of Premier League fixtures, with Manchester United and Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all failing to win.

Plus a defeat for Arsenal, which saw them slide to 15th in the table.

West Ham got the action underway on Friday night, with a 2-1 win at Leeds United.

In Saturday's early game, Aston Villa snatched a late win at Wolves, before Newcastle recorded a welcome victory against West Bromwich Albion.

The Manchester derby ended in stalemate, while Chelsea suffered a rare defeat at Everton.

Sunday began with a comfortable 3-0 win for Southampton against bottom club Sheffield United, while Crystal Palace held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw, the same scoreline as Fulham against Liverpool.

Arsenal have now had their worst start to a season for nearly 40 years after losing at home to Burnley, and Leicester took advantage of all the carnage when they beat Brighton 3-0.
