With the Premier League season more that 25 per cent complete, the runners and riders for this year's title are starting to pull away from the chasing pack. Spurs and Chelsea underlined their credentials as champions Liverpool's biggest challengers with comfortable victories over Arsenal and Leeds respectively. Leicester kept in touch with a last gasp winner against bottom side Leicester City and the much maligned Man United moved within five points of the summit with a come from behind win at West Ham.
For the first time in a long time, a Premier League round did not have any real headline news apart from Spurs defeating Man City 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening. Champions Liverpool soundly beat Leicester City 3-0 at Anfield, Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 win over Newcastle, and Man United's most important asset, the penalty, earned them the three points over struggling West Brom.
That was a pretty depressing week for Irish football. Defeats to England (3-0) and Wales (1-0), and a dour 0-0 draw with Bulgaria, sees the Republic of Ireland slip further down the world rankings and into pot three for the December draw of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Round seven concluded at Elland Road on Monday night when Leicester gave league new boys Leeds, a reality check with a 4-1 thumping. The game summed up another game week packed with goals.

I think it is fair to say no one would have predicted what happened in game week four of the Premier League. Champions Liverpool were thumped 7-2 by Aston Villa, Man United were smashed 6-1 by Spurs at Old Trafford, and Leeds earned a point against Man City. What a weekend it was.
Game week three brought 36 goals, thrillers, and upset; it really had it all. Result of the round came at the Etihad Stadium where Leicester City thumped Man City 5-2.
Another round of the Premier League has come and gone and a clear picture is already developing. Liverpool look the team to beat as they swept aside 10 men Chelsea in south west London on Sunday, West Brom and Fulham look certain to go straight back down after defeats to Everton and Leeds respectively, and Ole Gunnar Solskjær looks set for another tough season as Man United fell to a disappointing 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.
