It was another action-packed weekend in the Premier League, concluding with Manchester City's emphatic win over rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Before that heavyweight tussle at the Etihad Stadium, the 12th round of fixtures began at Cardiff City who collected a valuable win over 10-man Brighton and Hove Albion.

It was honours even between Huddersfield Town and West Ham United, and Southampton and Watford, while Leicester City' first home match since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha ended in a goalless draw with Burnley.
