This weekend saw the Premier League return from its international break as Liverpool continue to lead the way, despite dropping points for the first time this season. 

A late tap-in from Adam Lallana rescued Liverpool a point against Manchester United, who had led from a tap-in of their own from Marcus Rashford in a feisty North-West Derby.

Manchester City however cut their gap to Liverpool down to six points after quick-fire strikes from Gabriel Jesus and David Silva secured victory over Crystal Palace, who round out the top six.
