Another weekend of Premier League action is in the books, and with Everton and Crystal Palace to do battle at Goodison Park in the Monday Night Football fixture, the weekend ends with the season’s surprise package Leicester City standing proudly at the top of the table, followed by Arsenal and the two Manchester clubs.
Chelsea’s defence of their title took one more fatal blow with a shock defeat at home to new-boys Bournemouth.
Here are Five Things we learnt from the weekend’s action:
5) Leicester Aren’t All About Jamie Vardy
While the England striker’s goals have undoubtedly had a huge say in their rise to the summit of the Premier League table, and manager Claudio Ranieri can take a lot of the credit.
He has put together a well-organised, sound, and confident squad. From a goalkeeper putting in displays reminiscent of his famous father in Kasper Schmeichel, all the way through to the goals of Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, and the experience of Christian Fuchs and Robert Huth, the Foxes do not fear anyone.
The biggest test may be yet to come however: hanging on to the likes of Mahrez and Vardy when the transfer window opens.
