Arsenal went a goal down early in the north London derby but responded magnificently after Tottenham were reduced to 10-men. The Gunners, on the back of an eye-catching performance from Santi Cazorla, smashed Spurs 5-2 on Saturday.
Champions Manchester City went top of the Premier League table after rivals Manchester United could only respond to their 5-0 win over Aston Villa by losing 1-0 at Norwich City.
It was also a good weekend for Liverpool as two goals from Luis Suarez secured them a 3-0 win over Wigan.
In the relegation six-pointer between Southampton and QPR, it was the Saints who emerged victorious 3-1 on Saturday.
This week, we've gone with a 4-4-2 formation.
GK: John Ruddy (Norwich)
Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy brought his A-game when Manchester United visited Carrow Road on Saturday. The visitors were expected to dominate or at least create the better chances in the match and so it was no surprise to see United finish the game with 16 attempts at goal.
What was surprising was the full-time result, though, which read Norwich 1-0 Man United. This gritty win by the Canaries was a total team effort but there were some standout performers - Ruddy was definitely one of the stars. His stoppage time save to turn the ball over after it was deflected at goal by team-mate Sebastien Bassong certainly denied United an undeserved draw.
RB: Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton)
I wouldn't recommend buying any of Southampton's defenders for your fantasy team - they've conceded the most goals in the Premier League so far this season. However, Nathaniel Clyne is one to keep an eye out for in the future.
In the biggest game at the bottom of the Premier League table over the weekend, Clyne was rock-solid for his team when they needed him as the Saints beat fellow relegation candidates QPR 3-1 on Saturday.
LB: Javier Garrido (Norwich)
Following Manchester United's 1-0 defeat at Norwich, one of the criticisms I read about the performance went along the lines of "Antonio Valencia was not at the races today". I prefer to look at the match in a different light, and believe more credit should be given to Norwich full-back Javier Garrido for his successful shackling of the United midfielder.
CB: Jonas Olsson (West Brom)
With the wealth of attacking talent at their disposal, Chelsea were always going to score against West Brom on Saturday. The only question was: How many could West Brom restrict them to in order to stand a chance to win?
Well, thanks to the efforts of West Brom central defender Jonas Olsson, the Blues could only find the net once while the Baggies scored twice to come away from the weekend with an unlikely victory.
CB: Carlos Cuellar (Sunderland)
Sunday's only game saw Sunderland emerge with a 3-1 win over Fulham. The result was somewhat of a surprise given that, prior to the match, the only team that had scored more goals than Fulham this season was Manchester United while Sunderland had managed only one goal in their last three league games.
A good defensive performance was needed if they were to come away from Craven Cottage with any points and they got exactly that from centre-back Carlos Cuellar and more - the defender also chipped in with his first goal for the club by heading home a corner in the 3-1 win.
RM: Theo Walcott (Arsenal)
Arsenal fans and even the club's manager Arsene Wenger may be split on whether Theo Walcott is good enough or worth the money to keep at the club past this season. However, on Saturday at least Walcott put in a display that would have pleased everyone.
The England international played brilliantly against Tottenham on Saturday and was part of an Arsenal midfield which obliterated Spurs 5-2 following the dismissal of Emmanuel Abedayor. His contribution included a goal and an assist in the north London derby.
LM: Jose Enrique (Liverpool)
Isn't it nice when things just work? Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be pleased as punch with himself following his decision to push full-back Jose Enrique higher up the field into the left midfield slot against Wigan. The Spaniard was excellent and ended up with a goal and an assist as the Reds won 3-0 on Saturday.
CM: Jason Puncheon (Southampton)
Southampton pulled off a massive 3-1 victory over QPR on Saturday thanks to a courageous display from midfielder Jason Puncheon. The Saints player covered every blade of grass and showed the type of commitment and passion lacking in QPR's legion of new recruits.
Unsurprisingly, he had a hand in all three of Southampton's three goals - scoring one and setting up the other two.
CM: Santi Cazorla (Arsenal)
If Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had not signed Spain midfielder Santi Cazorla this season, I dare say the Frenchman's time at the club would seriously be up for debate amongst unhappy fans tired of seeing their star players sold. He has been one of the signings of the season and he showed exactly why in Arsenal's 5-2 demolition of Tottenham.
Everything about him just oozes class - his touches, his ability to use both feet equally well, and of course he can score goals too as Spurs found out.
ST: Carlos Tevez (Manchester City)
Manchester City got the perfect pick-me-up they needed ahead of their must-win game in the Champions League in midweek with a 5-0 thrashing of Aston Villa. The striking partnership of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero were both superb as they shared four goals between them. In the end, we went with Tevez, who was also a creative force for City and not just a scoring outlet.
ST: Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez nails down the final spot in our Team of the Week for his brace in the Reds' 3-0 win over Wigan. The Uruguay international has hit top gear and it is fair to say without his 10 goals this season (Liverpool have scored 17) the Anfield outfit would be in serious trouble.
Suarez is always dangerous player even when he is not scoring, but when he is on goal scoring form he's up there with the best in the world.
