Manchester City and Burnley with two players each: Premier League and League Cup team of the week

Crystal Palace also have two players in this week's XI after the 4-1 win at Leicester City spelled the end for manager Claude Puel

The Premier League returned this weekend after a break for the FA Cup, while the season's first piece of silverware was decided on Sunday when Manchester City beat Chelsea on penalties to retain the League Cup.

Watford and West Ham United both collected impressive wins on Friday night, before Burnley dealt a hammer blow to Tottenham Hotspur's title hopes in Saturday's early fixture.

Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers played out a draw at the Vitality Stadium, while Newcastle United heaped more misery on bottom side Huddersfield Town. Crystal Palace then put the final nail in Claude Puel's coffin - a 4-1 win at the King Power Stadium spelling the end of the Frenchman's spell as Leicester City manager.

On Sunday, Arsenal moved into the top four with a 2-0 win against Southampton, before Manchester United and Liverpool played out a goalless draw in the weekend's blockbuster fixture.

The action concluded at Wembley Stadium where, after 120 goalless minutes, City retained the League Cup after a penalty shootout win over Chelsea.
