Chelsea of ​​Maurizio Sarri lost, but Liverpool and Tottenham have won

Five of the first six members of the Premier League won over the weekend, but who seems "transformed", who "stumbled into victory" and who seems to be in "free fall"?

Cardiff and Burnley in danger of relegation have also won victories, but Chelsea, Huddersfield, Brighton and Fulham have lost.

Our reporters evaluated the performance of each team from A to F …

Manchester City: A +

Manchester City brought the game to another level against Chelsea with Sergio Aguero who produced perfection in attack. He could also afford to lose a three-meter goal and still get a score of 10/10 on the Sky Sports players' charts. With him at the forefront and the magnificent Bernando Silva who gave the tone in midfield, City was unstoppable at Etihad Stadium. If they continue to hit these levels, the rest could play for second place. (Lewis Jones)

Manchester United: A

Eleven undefeated and in the running for a top four, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed the mood around Manchester United, and in particular to Paul Pogba.

Pogba directed the show at Craven Cottage, while Anthony Martial was devastating on his left side, and United never took his foot off the gas.

It was a wave after another attack, just what fans wanted after a busy first half of the season, and support for the trip reacted by singing Ole's name from the first to last minute.

A perfect result and performance in a huge set of games against PSG, Chelsea and Liverpool. (Brand Gerard)

Burnley: A

Earlier results this day meant that Burnley slipped into the relegation zone before their trip to Brighton, but they increased their chances of survival with a vital victory at Amex Stadium. Goalkeeper Tom Heaton played a key role in the first half with a couple of rough beats, before Chris Wood took advantage of a Lewis Dunk slip to open the scoring.

The Clarets were the best team after the break and were held comfortably to prolong their unbeaten game in seven Premier League games. On recent tests, Burnley may not be involved in the battle for relegation too long. (James Walker-Roberts)

Tottenham: A-

Tottenham showed that they are still fighting for the title by overcoming a team of Leicester who had more shots on goal (9) than the hosts (5).

Hugo Lloris made a series of decisive saves, denying Demarai Gray, Harry Maguire and Harvey Barnes, while his penalty was stopped against Jamie Vardy – when Tottenham had 1-0 lead – proved to be a crucial turning point.

Christian Eriksen, Heung-Min Son and Davinson Sanchez have all scored great successes, while Oliver Skipp has been deservedly credited by Mauricio Pochettino after a guaranteed performance in his second game in the Premier League. (James Kilpatrick)

Liverpool: B +

This was more like the Liverpool we saw last season. Full of sparkle, creativity and quality finishes. Led by Georginio Wijnaldum's comeback and inspiration, the blunt performances against Leicester and West Ham were a distant memory from the moment when Sadio Mane set himself up for the fourth game in progress. Usually when Liverpool makes a click, Roberto Firmino has a great voice in the chapter and in the second part it was exceptional. This was a reminder for the doubters. (Lewis Jones)

Western ham: B +

West Ham produced a solid first half against the Palace and saw good value for their lead after a series of dangerous counterattacks with Felipe Anderson who caused many problems in defending the Palace.

While Manuel Pellegrini stood out after the match, West Ham dived in the second half and allowed Palace to take several shots on goal, but despite this, they resolutely defended largely and feel a little discouraged by the way slightly lucky by Wilfried Zaha equalizer. (James Kilpatrick)

Sky Sports Fantasy Football best scorer: Michail Antonio (10 points)

Leicester: B +

Claude Puel made a big call to drop Jamie Vardy between the tensions between player and coach following Leicester's defeat against Manchester United last weekend, but the team he selected gave an excellent account of himself at Wembley.

Tottenham was very lucky in this latest demonstration of being able to win the victories, and while Vardy would come to show the clinical advantage that his teammates were missing in his absence, his substitute Demarai Gray, along with Harvey Barnes and James Maddison, excavated their opportunities.

Now there are five games without a win for Leicester, their longest run with no three points since May of last year, but Youri Tielemans' debut gave encouraging signs. There are not many visitors who collect up to nine shots on goal at Wembley and the men of Puel will not face a team in the first six places until the last three games of the season. (Ben Grounds)

Crystal Palace: B +

Palace started slowly against West Ham, but improved considerably in the second half when Wilfried Zaha's offensive influence grew in the game and the introduction of Michy Batshuayi from the bench seemed to energize his teammates .

James McArthur and Batshuayi were both guilty of squandering the glorious opportunities, and Roy Hodgson would surely have wanted to see his team be more prolific in front of the door after taking 25 shots, but Palace showed a lot of grit and determination to beat a point against a resolute side of West Ham.

Cardiff: B

It was another performance full of character from Cardiff and score a winner two minutes after he granted a draw that summed up the grit and determination that Neil Warnock has instilled into his team. While the manager has not gone so far as to say that the wave has turned for Cardiff, he has certainly achieved a good period of fitness at the right time.

Cardiff has been paying close attention to them in the last three weeks after the tragic death of Emiliano Sala and have responded with some brilliant performances. (Charlotte Marsh)

Huddersfield: B

Huddersfield showed class and quality to produce his best performance of the season, but he probably chose the wrong time to do it and could not make it against Arsenal.

It was the same old story of how their final ball had disappointed them, but they generally defended themselves well. Adama Diakhaby looks like a real player and Jan Siewert did well to bounce his players from their hammer on Stamford Bridge with such confidence. (Ron Walker)

Sky Sports Fantasy Football best scorer: Jonathan Hogg (6 points)

Watford: B

Watford's hopes of earning European football have gained ground after a deserved win over a desperate Everton, a result that will have brought so much satisfaction like no one else this season for home fans.

That Marco Silva has turned his head at the last Toffees campaign is now demonstrating a blessing in disguise with his successor Javi Gracia leading his team inside a Lupi point in seventh place.

The key to this success was his decision to present Andre Gray at the interval, a move that gave rise to this race, when the attacker attacked Will Hughes's cross to score his fourth goal of the season .

Watford had a defensive sound, with Craig Cathcart dominating Cenk Tosun while a clean third sheet in four Premier League games had been relatively easily recorded, so much so that they had managed in the previous 21 games of the competition. (Ben Grounds)

Sky Sports Fantasy Football best scorer: Craig Cathcart (12 points)

Arsenal: B-

Arsenal had a victory against Huddersfield. This had the same characteristics as some of the unconvincing performances during their unbeaten run, but for this weekend they will be happy to shake off their losing run on the road.

Their decision-making process in the last third was poor and did not seem comfortable playing with three on the back, giving Huddersfield too much space in large areas. A better team would have punished them. (Ron Walker)

Southampton: C +

It was another disappointing late performance for Southampton, who thought he had gotten a point, but had ripped it back two minutes later. Despite having seen the best of the offensive game, they have offered very little forward and seem to struggle without Danny Ings in the next three weeks.

Shane Long is clearly untrustworthy and Charlie Austin is out of favor, with Southampton's most powerful goal being Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. They now have a two-week break and will need every minute on the training ground to get back to their best as a relegation battle looms. (Charlotte Marsh)

Sky Sports Fantasy Football best scorer: Jack Stephens (10 points)

Fulham: D

This was more or less the same as Fulham's. Relatively threatening in attack, but extremely poor in defense. Denis Odoi and Maxime Le Marchand have had horrible afternoons in an attempt to face Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, and the feeling around the club seems to have reached a new low.

Claudio Ranieri has been secretly ridiculed for removing Andre Schurrle and staging Cyrus Christie, and there has been great applause for the latest introductions by Tom Cairney and Ryan Sessegnon, with a little wonder why none of the two is starting up regularly.

Fulham had two initial chances that may have changed the course of the game, but with 12 games remaining, they need a miracle to stay on their feet. Ranieri is capable of those … (Gerard Brand)

Bournemouth: D

This was the eighth Premier League defeat on the road to Eddie Howe's men. Only Fulham has lost more away games (11). It was an encouraging start to Anfield when Ryan Fraser tested Alisson with an initial strike, but they did not rely on that opening as Liverpool outclassed and overtaken all divisions.

Bournemouth now has a two-week break. Their season seems to be flaming. (Lewis Jones)

Best Sky Sports Fantasy Football scorer: Artur Boruc, Dan Gosling, Andrew Surman, Jordon Ibe, Ryan Fraser, Jefferson Lerma, Joshua King (2 points)

Brighton: D

Brighton's poor performance continued with an internal defeat against Burnley. Chris Hughton's team had their chances, especially in the first half, but failed to convert until 3-0.

They had reason to be grieved after being denied a clear penalty and then seeing Burnley's counter and score from a penalty of them. However, the usual moans of frustration around the stadium when Brighton slowly performed from behind and struggled to find a spark by telling his story.

Without a win in the championship in 2019 and only three points above the relegation zone, Brighton will have to stop the rot soon. (James Walker-Roberts)

Sky Sports Fantasy Football best scorer: Shane Duffy (7 points)

Everton: D

Everton has been in a freefall since the 96th minute defeat against Liverpool since the beginning of December.

It is difficult to understand which direction this club is heading for, with the initial XI against Watford a mixture of purchases from the last three managers and this will have hurt Marco Silva on his return to his former club.

With the defeat of the Hornets, they produced another disjointed performance and the patience is about to finish among the supporters. The turnover of managers is probably all that Silva is keeping in his work, with Ben Foster not being forced to take note of note despite the wood being hit twice.

Silva also started making excuses, with Andre Gray's winning goal coming in a full minute after Jose Holebas's shot was overtaken by Jordan Pickford. (Ben Grounds)

Chelsea: E

Where do we start? Sarri-Ball? More like Sorry-Ball.

This was Chelsea's heaviest defeat in all competitions since losing 7-0 to Nottingham Forest in April 1991. Now he has lost four consecutive straight games without scoring, their worst road race since 1981.

Yes, Manchester City is Manchester City, but the lack of struggle, cohesion and motivation in this team is becoming a big concern.

It was an embarrassing result. Nothing to do for Sarri – his next two home games have read: Manchester United in the FA Cup and Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup. (Lewis Jones)
