5 things we learned from this weekend’s Premier League action

It was another good weekend for Manchester City as they extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table with an 11th successive win in the competition as their rivals dropped more points.

Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool’s defence of their title is over after defeat at Leicester, while at the other end of the table Fulham showed they have the stomach for the fight against relegation with victory at Everton.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at what we learned from the latest Premier League action.

City’s title to lose?

Manchester City took a big step towards reclaiming the Premier League title with a comprehensive 3-0 home win against Tottenham. Following on from their first victory at Liverpool since 2003, Pep Guardiola’s side recorded an 11th straight win in the Premier League and a 16th successive victory in all competitions. City look to be hitting their straps at exactly the right time as their rivals continue to slip up and drop points, with Leicester the only other team in the top four to win this weekend.
