Another week of Premier League action, another fascinating round of matches. Chelsea’s defensive frailties were on show again in their 3-0 defeat at Arsenal, and Liverpool made the most of Ahmed Elmohamady’s red card to beat Hull City 5-1 at Anfield. These are the 11 players who made the biggest impact on matchday six.
This week in his press conference Jurgen Klopp asked for a greedy and angry performance from his Liverpool side because Hull apparently want our points. While I immediately envisaged Roberto Firmino storming at the Hull defence turning green and shouting "You won't like me when I'm angry", in all seriousness, it is a very good point.
So the Premier League continues to be as unpredictable as ever. Defeat to Watford completed a dreadful week for Manchester United, while Liverpool picked up victory at Stamford Bridge over a disappointing Chelsea side. Manchester City kept up their excellent start to the season, while it continues to be a torrid start for Stoke City and Sunderland.
If you're trying to find out how you can watch Derby vs. Liverpool, you've come to the right place.
With Liverpool undefeated in the league in the last three games, the Reds will be hoping to follow up their impressive away victory with another win. At the same time, Derby County are fifth from bottom in the Championship, so an upset for the Rams against Liverpool would be a great way to lift the club's early season.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United slumped to a third defeat in as many games following a 3-1 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road.
The latest loss leaves the Red Devils seventh in the standings, six points behind leaders and local rivals Manchester City.
Mourinho’s teams are generally known for their defensive solidity but at a club that demand a more open, attacking approach, the Portuguese has been found wanting in a bid to balance attack and defence in these early days.
Big clashes in Englandthis weekend made for some truly eye catching scorelines. Chelsea wasthumped by city rival Arsenal, while champions Leicester City receiveda rude awakeningat Old Trafford. West Ham continued their torrid run to the season, while City's Guardiola stayed perfect.

Liverpool's official Twitter account produced a rather scintillating one-word riposte to a jibe from a Man Utd fan account on Sunday, with the Merseysiders' response coming after their Mancunian rivals had lost 3-1 away to Watford.

Mamadou Sakho has done his chances of ever playing for Liverpool again the power of good by openly complaining about his lack of first-team football on social media.
Having been dropped by Jurgen Klopp and sent home from the Reds' pre-season tour of the US for generally pratting about, Sakho is currently in limbo at Anfield after falling out of favour and struggling to come to terms with his deployment in the reserve ranks this season.

What can you say about that performance.
Liverpool were unstoppable, irrepressible. Liverpool didn't allow Hull anything close to a foothold from the opening whistle, even before Elmohamady's red card, and barely gave them a glimmer of hope before quickly stomping it back out in the second half.
