A first win for Luton, another loss for Man United, and complete VAR controversy as Spurs beat 9-man Liverpool. Arsenal fans' dreams come true as a shock result at the top of the table sees Wolves beat Man City. Chelsea pick up a much-needed win and Villa destroys in-form Brighton. Here's this week's best 11:

GK: Jose Sa

For any team to beat Man City they must stop a myriad of world-class attacking talents. Sa could arguably have done better with Alverez's free-kick however it was perfectly played into the top corner. Sa made some vital saves as Wolves held on to their lead in the final stages of the game.

RB: Matty Cash

Provided a hat-trick of assists as Newcastle put Sheffield United to the sword, scoring eight goals and breaking an array of records. Trippier provided three assists for his teammates with three sensational crosses. He showed why he is one of the best crossers in the league and a vital role in Newcastle's attacking output. With difficult Champions League fixtures ahead, Trippier's set-pieces will be as useful as ever.

CB: Ezri Konsa

One of Villa's outstanding performances as he didn't put a foot wrong. Won the ball and carried it forward in the build-up to the first goal. Confident on the ball and dealt with Ferguson with ease.

CB: Joachim Andersen 

Palace were never going to dominate the ball against United, leaving set-pieces to offer the most likely chance of a goal. They did exactly that, with Andersen scoring a perfectly executed volley from a free-kick delivery. He was also solid throughout and kept a clean sheet, even if United did waste a number of chances.

LB: Emerson

One of his best performances of the season so far. Linked up very well with Paqueta and often going forward and defensively.

CM: Douglas Luiz

A complete midfielder's performance from Luiz helped sweep Brighton aside. Villa often allowed Brighton defenders to hold the ball and then pounced when they tried to play into midfield. Luiz was great at springing counterattacks and regaining possession. He controlled the game and got a well-deserved goal in the stoppage time with a tidy finish into the bottom corner.

CM: Marvelous Nakamba

Instrumental in Luton's first-ever premier league win. Covered every blade of grass and won tackle after tackle. Nakamba has won the most tackles in the league so far this season (26), if Luton stay up and beat the odds, he will undoubtedly play a huge part.

CAM: Martin Odegaard

Another silky showing from Arsenal's captain. He was involved in most of the good things Arsenal created and took his penalty with complete composure. His ability to dribble out of tight spaces and avoid players is a joy to watch, as well as his vision and inventiveness in the final third.

RW: Miguel Almiron

Almiron scored the goal of the weekend as he curled a shot from outside the box into the top left corner. Newcastle fans will be hoping to see similar on Wednesday when they welcome PSG to St James' Park.

ST: Ollie Watkins

Hattrick Hero. Scored three for the second time this season in all competitions. He was a threat against Brighton's high line and pressed with energy and timing. Took his first two goals very well and was slightly fortunate to benefit from a deflection for the third. A complete performance any striker would be delighted with.

LW: Pedro Neto

Produced a sensational run to create Wolves' opening goal, picking the ball up out-wide and driving past defenders before flashing the ball across the box leading to a Rebuen Dias own goal. Neto has the most assists in the league so far this season this season (4) and could've had more with better finishing from his teammates.
