Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool recorded their third consecutive draw in all competitions with a 1-1 result against Southampton at Anfield. The match concluded week 10 of the Barclays Premier League, with Arsenal and Manchester City sharing top spot. Let's do a quick review of the round looking at the Good, Bad and Ugly:

Good

Tottenham Hotspur.

With Chelsea and Liverpool both struggling for form this campaign, Tottenham look the best bet to claim a top four spot come the end of the season. Despite losing 1-0 on the opening day against Manchester United, Spurs have put some impressive form together ever since.

The come-from-behind 5-1 win over Bournemouth means Spurs remain the only undefeated team since the opening round of the season, and they climb to sixth spot on the table. The only negative for Spurs heading into this match was the lack of goals from Harry Kane. However the English international bagged himself a hat-trick which will give his confidence a must needed boost.

With a huge match against Arsenal just two weeks away, Spurs will hope to continue the impressive performances by beating Aston Villa next week.

 Bad

The Manchester Derby.

It was billed as a clash between two heavyweights, of potential title contenders. However the latest installment of the Manchester derby was a dull and flat affair. 

The red and blue side of Manchester met at Old Trafford and produced a 0-0 draw that won't be shown again any time soon. Both sides only managed one shot on target all match, with United probably edging the game in terms of general play. 

Without Sergio Aguero and David Silva, City struggled to really threaten the United defence. For the Red Devils, Wayne Rooney's bad run of form continued as he failed to impose himself on the match. Late chances to Chris Smalling and Jesse Lingard did liven up the crowd, but ultimately no one can complain about sharing the points.



Ugly

Chelsea's Implosion.

Just when you think things could not get any worse for Chelsea, they sink even lower. The Blues travelled to the Boleyn Ground to take on the in-form West Ham United this weekend. A sluggish start meant the defending champions found themselves 1-0 thanks to a Mauro Zarate goal, and things got even worse just before half-time.

Firstly, Nemanja Matic stupidly got himself sent off after dragging down Diafra Sakho near the right byline. His second yellow card sparked anger among the Chelsea players, with Diego Costa and Cesc Fabreagas also being shown yellow cards for their protests. Then it was time for the staff to lose control. 

Assistant first-team coach Silvino Louro was banished to the stands for running on the pitch, and Jose Mourinho joined him in the second-half after the Portuguese manager attempted to speak to referee Jon Moss at half-time in the referees room. 

While Chelsea did play well with ten men, it was always going to be difficult to get anything from the game once the five minutes of maddness occurred.
