Tottenham have gotten off to a perfect start this season after crushing QPR, 4-0, and find themselves sitting top of the table thanks to the production of players like Erik Lamela.

Some of the key figures who were brought in after the mammoth Gareth Bale deal last summer are beginning to bear fruit. Spurs ran circles around a poorly organized Rangers side with Nacer Chadli bagging a brace and Lamela, who was especially lively, providing two assists. Eric Dier continued to make his mark, scoring his second goal in as many games and Emmanuel Adebayor found the score sheet as well for Spurs fourth and final goal. There is still some player movement likely to occur before the end of the summer window, but right now, Pochettino looks like he has got a plan and so far it is working quite well. If you dont have Lamela in your fantasy squad yet, hurry up and grab him while he is dirt cheap.

Manchester City players reported for a post-match debrief on Monday - having lost for the first time domestically this season - and the news on Fabian Delph was much better than initially feared.

The makeshift left-back was pictured leaving Anfield on crutches with his knee in a brace on Sunday due to a suspected ligament problem. Delph endured a torrid opening half hour, before he was forced off through injury having twisted awkwardly making a challenge. "He will be out, I think, for a while," Pep Guardiola said. "I don’t know if it will be a lot of time but he will be out for a while. It is his knee, he turned his knee." However, respected City correspondent for Goal – Sam Lee – understands the injury may not be as bad as first feared with Delph expected to be missing for around two weeks due to a muscle strain. With Benjamin Mendy out until at least April, former Real Madrid defender Danilo will deputise at full-back.

Manchester United cruised to victory on a 3-0 scoreline as Stoke's new manager Paul Lambert watched on from the stands.

United took control early in the tie, with Paul Pogba integral to their best moves. The Frenchman surged forward and set Antonio Valencia free as the defender scored United's first after beating Stoke full-back Josh Tymon. That came just minutes after Anthony Martial could have earned the Red Devils a penalty. However, Martial wasn't left ruing that as he scored United's second with a great curling effort, again assisted by the sublime Pogba. Romelu Lukaku added some late gloss to the scoreline late on. Stoke had their chances but Stephen Ireland missed the target with a big chance and De Gea was a match for attempts from Diouf and Shaqiri. A good result for José Mourinho as United gain on City but the result highlights how much work Paul Lambert has to do if he is to save The Potters from the drop.

Jose Mourinho provided a mixed team news update ahead of his sides game with managerless Stoke on Monday evening.

Following a 2-0 win over Derby County in the FA Cup ten days ago, United were whisked off to a warm weather training camp in Dubai to escape the bite of the British winter. "Very good – unbelievable facilities, the prince’s private facilities are better than any football club in the world," Mourinho said when asked how it was. "Unbelievable conditions to work, nice weather, three days of really, really good training. Hopefully we can improve our level because I really think it was good." Antonio Valencia, absent since December 17 due to a hamstring strain, was part of the group and following a full week of training he is "ready to play" although there are doubts over the availability of Anthony Martial who is "not ready, but I hope he can play." Ashley Young serves the final game of his three-match ban and Eric Bailly is not due to return until early February following ankle surgery.

Carlos Carvalhal is hoping the injury suffered by centre-back Mike van der Hoorn at St James’ Park on Saturday is not too serious.

The Dutchman was used as a makeshift right-back on Tyneside with Kyle Naughton [suspended] and Angel Rangel missing due to a calf strain. And the 25-year-old put in a solid performance before his injury on the hour mark. "Mike felt something in the muscle [suspected hamstring]," Carvalhal said. "We will have to see how bad the injury is. We have to wait 48 hours at least to try to see what he has done." Van der Hoorn is certain to miss the FA Cup replay with Wolves this week while a Monday night Premier League fixture [vs Liverpool] allows for a few additional days recovery. Carvalhal can call upon Kyle Bartley, to partner Alfie Mawson in the heart of defence, following his recovery from a long-term knee injury. Naughton is also available after completing his three-match ban.

Liverpool condemned Manchester City to their first domestic defeat of the season despite the absence of new centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Talk ahead of the late kick-off on Sunday suggested the £75 million defender would not be making his Premier League debut due to a problem with his hamstring. News which was confirmed officially by Jurgen Klopp when the team line-ups were announced. "[He is] a little bit injured – not really serious," he explained. "It was immediately after the [Everton] game he felt [his hamstring] a little bit. We made an assessment. If it’s the last game of the season maybe you take the risk." The former Southampton defender watched on from the stands as his new teammates edged a seven-goal thriller, a match described as "historical" by Klopp and one "you will talk about in 20 years." The Reds have the luxury of an 8-day break before their next match which should ensure that van Dijk is back in contention.

In one of the season's most dramatic affairs, Liverpool were able to hand Manchester City their first defeat, winning 4-3 in a nail-biter.

Goals continue to fly in the post-Coutinho era and it was Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain's performance that stood out the most. He would get the Reds on the board first, finishing a counter with a low drive, assisted by Roberto Firmino. City would level as the sides were 1-1 at the break but the Reds attack had a customary attacking explosion with three goals in nine minutes. The Ox would first pay Firmino back, setting up the Brazilian who finished with a sweet chip. Minutes later, Sadio Mane would fire a beauty from the edge of the box into the top corner, with Mo Salah teeing up the goal. Salah then had Anfield rocking, lobbing a ball over the keeper whose clearance attempt fell right to the Egyptian. City would score twice late to turn a rout into a narrow win but the Reds defense had done well up until then, despite the absence of Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester City's bid for an undefeated season ended today, as a late bid to comeback fell short in a 4-3 loss to Liverpool.

City may run away with this season's title but showed today that they are indeed mortal, failing to keep up with Liverpool's high-powered attack. The Reds were helped by an early goal which gave them a confidence boost from the Anfield crowd. City would equalize five minutes before halftime though, when Leroy Sane beat the keeper at his near post after being assisted by Kyle Walker. The defense was exposed drastically near the hour mark though, conceding three in a nine minute span. Looking done and dusted, Ilkay Gundogan made a game of it. He set up substitute Bernardo Silva for a goal to make it 4-2, then scored himself just as the game entered stoppage time, slotting home a ball from Sergio Aguero. It was too little, too late however but Pep's men are still way out in front at the top of the table.

Arsenal wasted a 1-0 lead against struggling Bournemouth as the Cherries came back to win 2-1 on Sunday as the Gunners were without want away attacker Alexis.

The news was pretty much all bad for the Gunners. Ozil, Ramsey, Koscielny, and Kolasinac were all out of action. Sanchez was left at home as a move to Manchester United seems all but done. Then, after dominating play for much of the first half they broke through in the second half through Hector Bellerin. Even that good news didn't last for long as goals from Jordan Ibe and Callum Wilson reversed the scoreline and gave the Cherries a 2-1 victory. Not the day that Arsene Wenger needed but perhaps the day he deserved after repeated missteps in handling inevitable squad turnover due to the expiring contracts of Sanchez and Ozil.

Callum Wilson was the star for Bournemouth as they came back with two late goals to beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

Bournemouth were assuredly the second best team on the pitch over the first half and the early going in the second half. Arsenal capped their early dominance with a 52nd minute goal from Hector Bellerin who was consistently open down the right flank. After the goal, the Cherries seemed to wake up and it was Callum Wilson who took it upon himself to see his club to victory with a goal to equalize and then an assist to Jordan Ibe who scored the winner in the 74th minute. The win put some much-needed distance between the Cherries and the drop zone.

Harry Kane shattered another record as exceptional Tottenham cruised to a 4-0 home victory over Everton on Saturday.

Having closed out 2017 by breaking Alan Shearer's record for most league goals in a calendar year, Kane continued his remarkable season against the Toffees, scoring twice to became Tottenham's all-time leading Premier League goalscorer (98). Hueng-Min Son opened the scoring in the 26th minute with a close-range finish off a Serge Aurier cross. Kane extended the lead by tapping in a well-struck ball from Son to open the second half and went on to complete his brace by converting a pass from Eric Dier 12 minutes later. Christian Eriksen then delivered the final blow, smashing in a fourth after a nifty backheel from Dele Alli in the 81st. Tottenham, now unbeaten in six matches, remain fifth in the table.

Cenk Tosun got his first taste of Premier League football as Everton were beaten 4-0 by Tottenham on Saturday.

Manager Sam Allardyce handed Tosun a prompt debut following his £27m move from Besiktas last week, but the movement of the Turkey international striker up top made little difference at Wembley. Everton's attack failed to register a single shot on frame, while the defense was torched by Hueng-Min Son and Harry Kane. Wayne Rooney provided the lone glimpse of life in the final third when he appeared to have put the Toffees ahead early on, but his effort was disallowed for offside. Everton, now winless in their last six matches, will look to get back on track when they face West Brom at home next Saturday.
