Liverpool bounce back, Thomas Tuchel extends unbeaten Chelsea start: Premier League predictions

We pick out the winners and losers from the latest round of English top-flight fixtures

There seems to be no stopping the Manchester City juggernaut at the moment.

Fresh from thumping Liverpool 4-1 at Anfield, City are now five points clear at the top of the Premier League – with a game in hand on second-placed Manchester United – having won a top-flight record-breaking 15 matches on the spin in all competitions.

Next up for Pep Gaurdiola's men is a clash with Spurs at the Etihad. Also playing on Saturday are Leicester City against Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, Crystal Palace's home game with Burnley and Brighton versus Aston Villa at the Amex.

On Sunday, Southampton take on Wolves on the south coast, West Bromwich Albion face Manchester United at the Hawthorns, Arsenal clash with Leeds at the Emirates Stadium and Everton entertain Fulham on Merseyside.

There are two games rounding off the latest round of fixtures on Monday when West Ham take on Sheffield United and Chelsea face Newcastle, both in the capital.
