Well well well, this weekend certainly threw up plenty of surprises in the Premier League.

Whether you enjoyed Manchester City slicing up Stoke time and time again, Tottenham nervously claiming their first league win at Wembley or Jose Mourinho taking a point at Anfield, there was a bit of everything for supporters of the world's most entertaining league.

Here are the best moments from a great weekend of Premier League football...


Best Goal

There's no real argument here. Manchester City were incredible on Saturday, scoring a ridiculous seven goals against Stoke, and Raheem Sterling benefited from some memorable build-up play to get himself on the scoresheet.

Centre-back Nicolas Otamendi started the move with a back-heel on the touchline before City began playing out from the back, moving up the pitch with ease, with Leroy Sane soon darting into the box.

The Germany international played an exquisite one-two with Kevin De Bruyne before laying it off to Sterling, who passed the ball past a scrambling Erik Pieters for a memorable goal.


Best Moment of Madness

Erm Bruno, what the bloody hell were you thinking?

The Spaniard threw an elbow into Dominic Calvert-Lewin's face needlessly and conceded a penalty when his Brighton side were 1-0 up and looking good for a third win in the Premier League.

Snatching a draw from the jaws of victory is certainly not going to go down well with Seagulls manager Chris Hughton.

Next time, simply heading the ball away from danger will fare better than assaulting the man you're marking.


Best Save

David de Gea is a goalkeeper who can anticipate incredibly well, but even by his standards his left-footed stop from Joel Matip was a thing of beauty.

The Liverpool defender's volley probably would have beaten any other shot-stopper in the Premier League, but De Gea got across so quickly, having seen the danger, and stabbed the ball away from goal.


Best Assist

After scoring a bucketload, it's not surprising that the best assist comes from a Manchester City player.

De Bruyne was on fire during the Stoke encounter, but perhaps his best contribution was an inch-perfect cross from the right, cutting through the entire Potter defence to put the ball on a plate for Leroy Sane.


Best Put Down

Most football fans know that Arsenal have been a bit limp defensively for a few years now, but Watford striker Troy Deeney did not hold back when rating the Gunners' display at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

The Hornets captain claimed Arsenal "lack cojones" after throwing away a comfortable lead, with Deeney netting a penalty before Tom Cleverley fired home from close range to seal the three points for Marco Silva's men.

What kind of reaction can we expect from Arsenal and Arsene Wenger? Probably more of the same.


Best Shock

Are Crystal Palace the biggest one-man team in the Premier League?

It's no coincidence that Roy Hodgson's side returned to form when winger Wilfried Zaha played against Chelsea on Saturday, but who would have predicted the team placed bottom in England's top flight would beat the reigning champions.

A storyline so obvious in hindsight that we probably should have seen it coming beforehand, the win will give Palace a huge amount of confidence as they look to climb the table in the coming months.
