Manchester City extended their unbeaten sequence in the Premier League this season to ten games with a 3-2 victory away to West Bromwich Albion.

Goals from Leroy Sané, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling lifted Pep Guardiola‘s side to a win at the Hawthorns, restoring their five-point lead over neighbours Manchester United, who edged Tottenham Hotspur earlier on Saturday at Old Trafford thanks to a late Anthony Martial strike.

Arsenal picked up their fourth straight win in all competitions, coming from behind to beat Swansea City 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

Jürgen Klopp got the better of his close friend David Wagner as Liverpool swept Huddersfield Town aside 3-0 at Anfield, while Watford‘s bliss under manager Marco Silva came to a grinding halt as the Hornets were beaten 1-0 at home to Stoke City.

Wilfried Zaha's 96th-minute strike salvaged a point for basement club Crystal Palace against West Ham United in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park, while Eden Hazard's second-half strike was enough to see champions Chelsea past struggling Bournemouth in the Saturday evening kick-off.

On Sunday, Brighton and Hove Albion drew 1-1 with Southampton before Claude Puel's tenure as Leicester City manager was launched in convincing fashion with a 2-0 win over struggling Everton.

Here are the best of the facts and stats you might have missed from the weekend's action.

Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

Old Trafford has never been a happy hunting ground for Spurs throughout the years, and Saturday proved no different as Mauricio Pochettino‘s side struggled without the focal point of Harry Kane in attack. This latest defeat was Spurs' 21st at Old Trafford in the Premier League, more than any other side in the competition.

Matchwinner Martial was the centre of a few interesting stats, which underline the perception of him as a player who can decisively impact games for José Mourinho's side. The Frenchman has now scored four goals as a substitute this season, which is more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues.

The 21-year-old is averaging a goal or assist every 50 minutes for the Red Devils and is the toast of Manchester after another game-changing cameo.

United are now unbeaten in their last 22 league games at home, their longest run since 2011.

The stats were less flattering for Pochettino, though. The Spurs boss is rightly regarded as one of the most astute managerial minds working in the game, but his record away to top six sides is exceptionally poor, with only one win from 16 games. You feel that, if he is to guide Tottenham to Premier League glory, that particular record must improve.

Arsenal 2-1 Swansea

Arsène Wenger enjoyed a happy 800th Premier League game in charge of Arsenal, clinching another three points after last week's comprehensive victory over Everton with a comeback win thanks to goals from Sead Kolašinac and Aaron Ramsey, the Welshman becoming the 11th player to score 50 goals under the Frenchman.

The win was Arsenal's 13th in a row in all competitions at the Emirates Stadium, signalling the longest ever winning sequence since they moved to the arena back in 2006.

It also confirmed the Gunners as the Premier League's current comeback kings, following up their turnarounds against Everton and Leicester City.

Crystal Palace 2-2 West Ham

Roy Hodgson's Palace fought back from two goals down to rescue a point right at the death thanks to Zaha. The Hammers extended their unbeaten league record against the Eagles under Slaven Bilić to five games, but that will come as little consolation to the Croatian after the manner in which they frittered away two precious points here.

It was pleasing to see Javier Hernández on the scoresheet, though. The Mexican has now scored all 41 of his Premier League goals from inside the box. Only Tim Cahill, with 56 from 56, boasts a more impressive record in that regard.

Liverpool 3-0 Huddersfield Town

The Reds got back to winning ways after last week's defeat to Spurs with a comfortable win over the Terriers, thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum. That was Sturridge's 100th career goal, 62 of which have come in the Red of Liverpool.

Wijnaldum, meanwhile, is the owner of an interesting record as all 18 of his Premier League goals have come at home (11 for Newcastle United and seven for Liverpool). Home comforts indeed.

Mohamed Salah will be kicking himself, though, as the Egyptian missed a penalty. That was Liverpool's 34th missed penalty overall in the Premier League, which ties them with Arsenal.

The defeat meant that Huddersfield have now gone 11 games without a win against Liverpool in all competitions, stretching back to 1960.

Liverpool keep up an impressive record against newly-promoted sides at home, though, extending their unbeaten run to 20 games, with their solitary defeat coming against Blackpool in October 2010.

Watford 0-1 Stoke City

Darren Fletcher's first-half strike was enough for Stoke to seal three valuable points away to high-flying Watford. It was business as usual, though, as it was Stoke's fourth successive Premier League win over the Hornets.

The only other time Watford have managed a four-game win streak against a side in the league was Blackburn Rovers, who they beat five times in a row between 2010-12.

It was also Watford's first defeat to a side below them in the current campaign. Before the game, their two other losses came to leaders Manchester City and champions Chelsea. The Hornets will certainly be looking for ways to end their Stoke hoodoo when the sides meet again in January.

West Brom 2-3 Manchester City

It was yet another win for Guardiola's City, which means more stats that reaffirm their dominance and superiority thus far. In fact, in moving to 28 points after ten games, it equalled their own record set in 2011/12 under Roberto Mancini and the Chelsea side of 2005/06.

However, neither of those teams managed a goal difference of +29 at this point, so this start is legitimately the greatest ever managed by a Premier League team.

Sterling scored again, taking his tally in all competitions to nine, just one less than he managed in the whole of last season. Only Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane have managed more goals in all competitions this season.

The defeat equalled West Brom's worst losing streak against a team. The Baggies have now lost 12 in a row against City, equalling their wretched runs against Chelsea (1989-2011) and Liverpool (1985-2010).

Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea

Hazard's goal was enough to clinch three points for Antonio Conte‘s Blues at the Vitality Stadium as Eddie Howe's Cherries remain in the bottom three.

The Belgian's goal was his third in his last three games for Chelsea, which is as many as he managed in his previous 17, an ominous sign indeed for upcoming opponents. It was also Hazard's fifth in as many games against Bournemouth, so they are surely glad to see the back of him for another few months at least.

His goal was assisted by Álvaro Morata, who became the first player this season to be directly involved in ten Premier League goals, with seven strikes and three assists to his name, underlining the excellent impact the Spaniard has had.

Brighton & Hove Albion 1-1 Southampton

There was no winner in the battle between two South Coast clubs as Brighton and the Saints played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium. Steven Davis headed Southampton into an early lead but the Seagulls hit back through Glenn Murray‘s header just after the break, guiding his effort past Fraser Forster for his 50th home goal for Brighton.

It was the veteran striker's third goal in two games and, once again, he was assisted by Pascal Groß, Brighton's hard-working playmaker who grabbed his fifth assist of the campaign. Only City duo Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva have more, with six apiece. The German is keeping impressive company.

Leicester City 2-0 Everton

First-half goals from Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray – via a huge deflection from Jonjoe Kenny – heaped further misery on Everton as Leicester ran out comfortable 2-0 winners at the King Power Stadium.

It leaves the Toffees still languishing in the bottom three on just eight points from ten games. That constitutes their worst start to a league campaign since the 2005/06 season under David Moyes.

It was the first time Leicester have recorded back-to-back wins this season.

For Everton, scoring goals and finding inspiration up front continues to be a problem. In fact, when Wayne Rooney left the pitch to be replaced Gylfi Sigurdsson, Oumar Niasse was the only Everton player with a goal to his name. That gives you a fairly accurate picture of what's been the problem at Goodison Park this season.
