Manchester City opened up a five-point lead at the top of the table as Manchester United slipped up at Huddersfield on a busy day of Premier League action.
But what were the best stats from Saturday's games?
Here, we pick out five of the best...
Aguero equals the record
There was no doubt about the stand-out statistic in Manchester City's 3-0 win over Burnley at the Etihad Stadium. Sergio Aguero made history by equalling the club's all-time scoring record when he struck the opener from the penalty spot.
It was the Argentine's 177th goal for Manchester City in all competitions, drawing level with Eric Brook. He left the field to a rousing reception in the second half and will be expecting to move clear at the top of the list very soon.
Lukaku fails to fire
Much has been made of Romelu Lukaku's struggles to score in big games during his career but he could find no way past Huddersfield either on Saturday as Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the Premier League season against the newly-promoted side.
Perhaps surprisingly, this is not a new trend for player or club. Not only have United lost three of their last six away games against clubs making their debut in the Premier League but Lukaku has failed to score in 18 of his last 25 games against newly-promoted sides.
Azpilicueta scores the winner
Chelsea looked to be in trouble against Watford before Cesar Azpilicueta popped up at the back post to force the ball beyond Heurelho Gomes and give the Blues the lead in their come-from-behind 4-2 win at Stamford Bridge.
Although it was Azpilicueta's first Premier League goal of the season, he already has four assists to his name too - all of them for Alvaro Morata. In fact, no defender in the Premier League has been involved in more goals so far this season.
Bournemouth strike early
Pressure is building on Stoke boss Mark Hughes, especially given that he would have hoped the visit of Bournemouth would have been the perfect opportunity to bounce back from last week's 7-2 defeat to Manchester City. Instead, the Potters succumbed to a 2-1 defeat.
It did not take Bournemouth long to punish the home side. Andrew Surman slotted home with his left foot and within 133 seconds, Eddie Howe's men were two goals up as Junior Stanislas converted from the spot. The Cherries scored with their first two shots on target.
Swansea's own goal woe
Swansea would have been expecting to pick up something at home to a Leicester side under caretaker manager Michael Appleton but they were beaten 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium. Not for the first time in recent seasons, the Swans were their worst enemy too.
Federico Fernandez put the ball into his own net for the opening goal - the 11th own goal scored by a Swansea player since the start of the 2015/16 season. Incredibly, that is more than twice as many as any other Premier League team in that period.
