Stunning late goals, red cards, stunning goals in general, and plenty of talking points mean that Week six will live long in the memory.
Below is a roundup of all the action as we link you to recaps, reaction, videos and analysis from all the games.
Spurs were closing in on a famous win at the Emirates thanks to Nacer Chadli’s cool second half finish, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored late in the game to give Arsenal a point. Neither team deserved to lose this one but Tottenham will be the happier.
This Merseyside derby was a slow burner but it fired into action in the second half as Steven Gerrard curled in a beautiful free kick to make it 1-0. That goal seemed to have given Liverpool a crucial win but up stepped Phil Jagielka to hammer home an absolutely stunning half-volley in injury time to stun Anfield and grab the Toffees a point.

Manchester United were cruising in the first half as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie were on target to put them 2-0 up. Then West Ham pulled one back through Sakho after a bad mistake from David De Gea. Louis van Gaal’s side held on for the win, despite having Wayne Rooney sent off early in the second half and the Hammers battering the Red Devils. Paddy McNair and Luke Shaw made their debuts and both excelled in the face of adversity.

Five wins from six for Jose Mourinho’s boys who are still unbeaten this season. Goals from Oscar, Diego Costa (his eighth in six games) and Willian made this an easy win as Villa never got going. Chelsea are top of the table while Villa slip to fifth.
Six wins from six in all competitions for Saints, as they bagged a fourth-straight league win. Remarkable. They had to work hard for this one as Ryan Bertrand gave them the lead but a stunning equalizer from Charlie Austin drew the sides level. Graziano Pelle then grabbed the winner with an audacious overhead kick which was worthy of winning any game. Sublime.
The Eagles are soaring and have won two on the bounce under Neil Warnock who is unbeaten in four games since taking charge at Selhurst Park. Second half goals from Frazier Campbell and Mile Jedinak, both from set pieces, were the difference, as Leicester were stunned. Big win for Palace who are up to eighth.
Man City raced into a 2-0 lead as Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero scored to make it 2-0 inside 11 minutes. Then Eliaquim Mangala had “a ‘mare” as he scored an own goal and then gave away a penalty which Abel Hernandez scored. Hull were pushing to go ahead but goals from Dzeko and then Frank Lampard (again!) sealed the win for City who are up to third spot in the standings.
Not much to reports up at the Stadium of Light, as Sunderland drew their fifth game from six this season. The Swans were reduced to 10-man in the second half as Angel Rangel picked up to two yellows but held on to grab a point on the road.
