After 10 consecutive wins in all competitions, Arsenal finally came unstuck at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday but ended the weekend still top of the Premier League.

Two days after being admonished by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger for his apparent smoking, Jack Wilshere found his spark in the second half to recover a 1-1 draw.

Arsenal heads into the two-week international break level on points with Liverpool but topping the table on goals scored.

Chelsea is two points behind after late goals from substitutes Eden Hazard and Willian clinched a 3-1 win at Norwich.

The goal of the day — perhaps of the season — came at Tottenham where Ravel Morrison completed a 3-0 victory for West Ham after running half the length of the pitch with the ball before scoring.
