Match week 14 of the 2019/20 Premier League season began on Saturday the 30th of November with Manchester City traveling to Newcastle.
With City already nine points adrift of table-topping Liverpool Pep Guardiola’s side really couldn’t afford to slip up vs the North-East outfit.
However, despite taking the lead twice, City only managed to leave St James’ Park with a point.
This meant Liverpool had the chance to go 11 points clear of City with a win over Brighton later that day.
Jurgen Klopp’s side did exactly that, emerging with a 2-1 win.
Elsewhere in Saturday’s 3 pm ties Crystal Palace beat Burnley, West Ham saw off Chelsea and Tottenham put Bournemouth to the sword.
In Saturday’s late PL kick-off Southampton beat Watford 2-1 in what was Quique Sanchez Flores’ final game in charge.
Sunday’s Premier League clashes then saw Arsenal draw with Norwich, Wolves draw with Sheffield United, Leicester beat Everton and Manchester United draw with Aston Villa.
With MW14 over, Alan Shearer has released his latest Premier League Team of the Week.
After seeing off Brighton with 10 men Liverpool had two defenders named in Shearer’s TOTW, those players being Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Newcastle also featured heavily after their 2-2 draw with the Premier League champions.
Magpies’ stars Martin Dubravka, Federico Fernandez and Jonjo Shelvey all made it into Shearer’s TOTW.
And after earning his first win in eight league ties, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini was named manager of the week by Shearer.
The full Team of the Week can be seen below.
