|Ten games which shaped the 2017/18 Premier League season
| sbo666 Chelsea 2-3 Burnley (August 12)Antonio Conte would have expected Chelsea's Premier League title defence to get off to a winning start against Burnley at Stamford Bridge, but what played out was to set the tone for both teams' seasons.
Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal (August 28)Was this the first sign of Arsene Wenger's reign coming to an end at Arsenal? Despite speculation surrounding the futures of both Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wenger started both, leaving new signing Alexandre Lacazette out.
Manchester City 5-0 Liverpool (September 10)Unbeaten in their first three games of the season, Pep Guardiola's side sent out a statement of intent with comprehensive 5-0 win over 10-man Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.
West Brom 0-4 Chelsea (November 18)The pressure was building on Tony Pulis at West Brom after a run of 10 games without a win, stretching back to August 22, and with Chelsea in town things were not getting much easier for the beleaguered Baggies boss.
Manchester United 1-2 City (December 10)The pressure was on Man Utd to breathe life into their flailing title challenge as rivals City visited Old Trafford for the first Manchester derby of the season. But things did not go to plan for Jose Mourinho as goals in either half from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi saw City clinch a record 14th consecutive top-flight win to open up an ominous 11-point gap just 16 games into the season.
Liverpool 4-3 Man City (January 14)Could Man City follow in the footsteps of Arsenal's Invincibles and go through the season unbeaten? Not on Liverpool's watch! Klopp's side brought City's unbeaten domestic run to a shuddering halt. sbo666
Arsenal 0-3 Man City (March 1)Four days after meeting in the Carabao Cup final, Manchester City triumphed by the same scoreline as first-half goals from Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane underlined the gulf between the two sides.
Chelsea 1-3 Tottenham (April 1)Tottenham ended their 28-year Stamford Bridge hoodoo as Dele Alli struck twice in a 3-1 win to severely dent Chelsea's top-four hopes. Not since the days of Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne had Spurs triumphed at the Bridge and their first Premier League win at the ground came the hard way having fallen behind to Alvaro Morata's opener.
Manchester United 0-1 West Brom (April 15)Man City were on the brink of the title following a 3-1 win at Tottenham and only rivals Manchester United could prolong Guardiola's wait for a first league championship in England. However, the wait was over as West Brom secured a third Premier League title for City with an unlikely 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Swansea 0-1 Southampton (May 8)The battle to beat the drop was threatening to go all the way to the final day of the season until substitute Manolo Gabbiadini's goal 17 minutes from time at the Liberty Stadium. Swansea and Southampton started the evening on the same number of points and after what was a nervy encounter in south Wales, the Italian's strike went a long way to securing Southampton's Premier League status. sbo666
