The sun shone down this week on another run of weekend Premier League action.

Nonetheless, there’s plenty to talk about so let’s dive in.

A bit of a different look to a gameweek ending feature match this time as a Leeds United team on a hot streak hosted Crystal Palace at Elland Road.

Let’s have a look at five players that have been signed this mid-season window which ought to be watched out for.
Another midweek fixture came to a close at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last night as a struggling Tottenham played host to a Chelsea side that is starting to show signs of rejuvenation under the new management of Thomas Tuchel.
We are back in the thick of another midweek fixture list with another five games taking place overnight. Plenty of teams playing to get themselves back in winning ways from the weekend and, with the games coming thick and fast and the season being the closest we’ve seen in a while, points are more valuable than ever.
