Bernardo Silva, Andriy Yarmolenko and Chris Wood: Premier League team of the week

Richard Jolly selects his best XI from the sixth round of fixtures from the English top flight

Goalscoring defenders were the order of the weekend in the Premier League.

West Ham's Aaron Cresswell curled home a beauty of a free-kick as the Hammers downed a sorry-looking Manchester United at the London Stadium to take them up to fourth in the table.

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold was at it as well, rocketing a set-piece past Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga as Jurgen Klopp's side won 2-1 to make it 15 Premier League wins in a row.

Elsewhere, Manchester City's Bernardo Silva produced another vintage display as his side breezed past Watford 8-0 - a scoreline which threatened but just failed to match the 9-0 victory recorded by Manchester United against Ipswich Town in 1995.
