Aston Villa defied all odds to beat Leicester city away. They have won all their four matches played so far. They have a game in hand against Everton meaning if they beat Leeds on Friday they go top of the Premier League!

Wolves are doing well. After their away win over Leeds last night they move to 6th on the table.

Jose Mourinho Tottenham went from sublime to ridiculous to play an unwanted 3-3 draw against west Ham. They occupy 7th on the table.

Chelsea surrendered a 2-0 goal lead against Southampton. They have defensive problems and it is costing them already. Dow to 8th position.
