Vital View - Premier League - 20th-21st October 2017

The Premier League season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

Brighton pulled clear of the relegation zone, adding to the pressure on West Ham's Slaven Bilic, with a convincing win over the Hammers on Friday evening to kick off the weekends schedule - this continued on Saturday lunchtime when Chelsea hit four in a victory over Watford.

A shock Huddersfield win over Manchester United at the John Smith's Stadium opened the door for Manchester City to extend a lead at the top, which they took when beating Burnley at the Etihad Stadium.

Crystal Palace are now four points adrift at the bottom following a defeat at Newcastle, second bottom Bournemouth are only a point off third bottom Stoke after the Cherries recorded only their only second victory of the campaign over the Potters.

The Leicester reaction to sacking Craig Shakespeare saw them win at Swansea. Meanwhile, the late game on Saturday saw Southampton overcome West Brom.
