The 2016/2017 Premier League season keeps coming up with more excitement every week.

All this was confirmed last weekend.

Spurs maintained their impressive run and form as they took Bournemouth to the cleaners, and Chelsea were subdued by Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. Man United now have their destiny of a top four finish in their hands. The battle at the bottom of the table is still raging as no team has been confirmed relegated yet, with 6 games to go.
