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.
Round one of the Premier League is done and dusted and we got good value from our eight games with 23 goals scored. There were no shocks on the opening weekend as Fulham and West Brom fell to 3-0 defeats to Arsenal and Leicester City respectively with Chelsea securing three points away to Brighton.

So we are halfway through January and it looks all over bar the shouting as Liverpool extended their enormous lead at the top to 14 points with a hard fought 1-0 success over Spurs in north London. Elsewhere Watford's great escape continues to gather momentum as they defeated fellow strugglers Bournemouth 3-0 on Sunday to climb at of the relegation zone for the first time this season; Man City annihilated Aston Villa 6-1; and Southampton exacted revenge for their 9-0 hammering in October, inflicting a 2-1 defeat on Leicester to all but kill off The Foxes' faint title hopes.
