Five bombshells that an amazing weekend of Prem action taught us...

1 UNITED ARE FAVOURITES FOR THE TITLE!

Man. United are the new favourites to win the Premier League after they leapfrogged Man. City by beating West Brom 2-0 to claim top spot!

2 SPURS MUST FIGHT FOR THE TOP FOUR!

Tottenham were in the title race a month ago, but after three successive Premier League defeats they now face a battle to retain their place in the top four! Harry Redknapp’s decision to play Luka Modric on the left wing, rather than central midfield where he can affect the game more, has backfired!

3 BLACKBURN ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO STAY UP!

Some Blackburn fans have wanted Steve Kean sacked as manager for ages, but a 2-0 win over Wolves has taken them up to 16th in the league! With Junior Hoilett tearing teams apart, Blackburn have a good chance of avoiding relegation!

4 DROGBA IS TOP DOG AT CHELSEA!

Roberto Di Matteo may have taken over at Chelsea, but it's players like Didier Drogba who really motivate and drive the team! His goal at the weekend saw Chelsea beat Stoke 1-0. It was his 100th Premier League goal for the club!

5 KING KENNY IS UNDER PRESSURE!

Kenny Dalglish may have guided Liverpool to a Carling Cup triumph last month, but they've since lost their two Prem games. Only four teams in the league have scored fewer goals than the Reds this season.

SANCHEZ! Is the Arsenal man the most exciting signing of the summer so far?

TORRES! The Chelsea striker missed an open goal in a pre-season friendly!
