Nearly half way through the Premier League season and there is no stopping Liverpool.

Round 17 of 38 out of the way for Jurgen Klopp, and his Liverpool side have extended their lead at the top to ten points. They might not have been their best against bottom club Watford, but the 2-0 win was significant with closest pursuers Leicester being held to a draw by lowly Norwich.

Manchester City, and particularly Kevin de Bruyne, were in magnificent form as they strolled to a 3-0 win at Arsenal, who are really struggling without a manager.

Tottenham pulled off a great 2-1 win at Wolves, though probably not deserved, while West Ham eased some nerves with their win at Southampton.

As we head into the busy festive fixtures, Richard Jolly has provided his team of the week in the photo gallery above.
