EPL Matchweek 13: Five takeaways
It's 13 weeks in the books in the EPL and suffice to say that this week brought some major surprises. Let's take a look at the 5 biggest storylines from the week's matches!

5. Spurs continue their climb


Harry Kane and Tottenham kept up their great form as they beat West Ham 4-1 to move to 5th in the table. Kane scored twice and has now put together a great run of matches, recovering his incredible form from last season. Could this be the year that Spurs really make a challenge for the top 4?

4. Sunderland grab a win


Sunderland got just their second win of the season yesterday as they beat Crystal Palace in London. It was a pretty disappointing match across the board as neither team looked like scoring, but it all went wrong for Palace as Scott Dann and keeper Wayne Hennessey got into a mixup at the back as Jermain Defoe pounced to score the only goal. Some big dropped points for Palace, who could've moved sixth but instead fall to 10th. Sunderland move up to 18th, just one point away from safety.

3. Arsenal fall to West Ham


The Gunners missed a gild-edged chance to go top of the table as they fell to lowly West Brom on Saturday, 2-1. West Brom played a great match and took the lead on a Mikel Arteta own goal after getting it started through James Morrison.

Terrible result for Arsenal who may come to rue this slip in concentration in a match they surely should've won.

2. Liverpool crush City


Liverpool smashed Manchester City 4-1 in a pretty surprising result over the weekend. City could've gained a lead atop the table given Arsenal's slip but failed to take advantage as Jurgen Klopp's men played with confidence and skill to gain a huge 3 points. Great win for Liverpool, bad match for City.

1. Leicester go top


Surely the biggest storyline of the week is Leicester, who continued their shocking season and ended the week at the top of the table, ahead of 2nd place United by one point. James Vardy set a Premiership record by scoring in his 10th consecutive match and Leicester seem to be the real deal, much to everyone's surprise. They're a fun story and are playing some great football these days.

@mchlyang It was the Champions League when it was just for Champions. When they diluted it, it became the Chumpions.
@InPlainSight Haha good one. You think Newcastle is every going to make it to the Champions League any time soon?
@InPlainSight HAHAHAAH you're too honest my friend. It'd be interesting to see how Chelsea does in the Champions League though.
They probs are not going to make it to the Top 4 in the EPL so their best shot might be to just focus on the Champions League and see if they can win the whole thing!
