West Ham United suffered another setback in their top four pursuit as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton & Hove Albion, but Arsenal could not take advantage as they went down 3-2 to Manchester United.
Here, Sports Mole selects its Team of the Week for gameweek 14 of the Premier League season.
He may not have kept a clean sheet on the day, but Edouard Mendy continues to delight between the sticks for Chelsea and played a key role in the win at Watford, making six saves to ensure his side would come away with maximum points.
The ever-versatile Stuart Dallas excelled on the right-hand side for Leeds against Crystal Palace, as the Northern Ireland international made six tackles, posted two interceptions and two blocks in a dominant defensive display.
Producing a finish that any striker would be proud of, Man City's defensive rock Ruben Dias broke the deadlock in some fashion at Villa Park from long range, and the reliable Portuguese also completed 92% of his passes on the day.
Wolves should have done much better in the final third against Burnley, but Max Kilman was a big reason why they came away with a point to show for their efforts, as the 24-year-old made six interceptions, won three of his four aerial battles and recorded a 91% pass accuracy.
Not long after Jurgen Klopp claimed that 'people forget how good he is', Andy Robertson produced one of several standout performances against Everton with two assists on the day, and the superb Scot also made five tackles during a stellar success.
Another Liverpool representative in this XI, Jordan Henderson produced a true captain's performance in the derby at Goodison Park, breaking the deadlock with a delightful curling effort before setting up Mohamed Salah's strike all inside the first 20 minutes.
An alarming lack of goals from Bruno Fernandes contributed to Man United's downfall under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the Portuguese playmaker bounced back in some style against Arsenal, firing home past Aaron Ramsdale while also recording four key passes and two tackles in a thrilling victory.
Completing a star-studded three-man midfield is someone who sought to quiet exit rumours from the club, as Chelsea's Mason Mount scored one before setting up Hakim Ziyech's winner at Vicarage Road to help see off a stubborn Watford.
What else is there to say about Mohamed Salah that has not already been said? No angle was too tight for the electric Egyptian to weave his left-footed magic to beat Jordan Pickford, and he was rewarded for his pressure on Seamus Coleman with a second goal as he broke yet another goalscoring record for the Reds.
If ever there was a way to rescue a point against a top-four side, an overhead kick in the 89th minute is right up there, as Brighton talisman Neal Maupay saw his sublime effort nestle into the back of the net as the Seagulls swooped to claim a respectable draw at West Ham.
Finally, any concerns about Cristiano Ronaldo's Old Trafford return hindering this United side were quashed in midweek, as the 36-year-old picked up where he left off against Arsenal with a brace on the day - including the winner from the penalty spot - as he prepares for life under Ralf Rangnick.
