After deadline day, it was kind of nice to have a few days of games that didn't involve Chelsea to relax and enjoy. Chelsea entered the weekend having played one more game then all of their major rivals, and this would be the chance for all of them to make up their game in hand. The games are now finished, and when the dust settles Chelsea are the only team that has taken maximum points from their first three fixtures. Here's a look at what transpired this weekend:
- West Ham 3 - Fulham 0: Dembele out, Dempsey out, Fulham's good form gone. West Ham were out of sight before half time in this one, and it turned into a bit of a laugher. Dimitar Berbatov and Andy Carroll both made their debuts for the London clubs, but Yossi Benayoun was not involved.
While more results could have gone Chelsea's way, all of Tottenham, Newcastle, and Liverpool dropped points over the weekend. I certainly won't complain about those types of results, as fourth is starting to look like it won't be as much of an issue already.
