Premier League Table 2016/17: Week 9 EPL Results, Updated Standings, Top Scorers & Assists

Week 9 of the Premier League came to its conclusion with a blockbuster match between Chelsea and Manchester United last night.

It was not quite the homecoming presentation Mourinho would have expected. Antonio Conte‘s side thrashed the Red Devils 4-0 and got themselves back into the title race.

Pedro scored inside 30 seconds and from there, Manchester United were always chasing the game. The away side were punished for their recklessness and goals from Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard, and N’Golo Kante wrapped up a comfortable victory for the Blues.

Elsewhere, Manchester City‘s struggles continue as Guardiola’s side were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Southampton. The league leaders are in a bit of a crisis at the moment and will need to bounce back soon.

Arsenal and Spurs were both held to 0-0 draws by Middlesbrough and Bournemouth respectively.

Liverpool picked up a nervy 2-1 win over West Brom at home and are level on points with Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the standings. City continue to sit top on goal difference, while Arsenal remain second.

Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho scored two wonderful goals to secure the three points for Klopp. However, a fantastic performance from Foster ensured that the Baggies were in the game until the last minute.

Burnley secured a thrilling 2-1 win over Everton thanks to a 90th-minute winner from Scott Arfield. Sam Vokes scored for the second consecutive Premier League match to give his side the lead. Yannick Bolasie’s first Premier League goal for Everton drew them level on 58 minutes.

Stoke City continued their resurgence with a comfortable 2-0 win over Hull City. The Tigers are in terrible form right now and were undone by a brace from Xherdan Shaqiri.

Meanwhile, Leicester’s impressive home form continued with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace. The Eagles have done well in the league recently but were blown away by Leicester’s intensity and desire.
