It was another blockbuster weekend of Premier League action as Chelsea's unbeaten run finally came to an end at the hands of Newcastle, while West Ham climbed into third place after an Andy Carroll brace helped them to victory against Swansea.

Newcastle overcame a poor Chelsea showing to inflict the first defeat on the Blues in the league this season, with standout performances from Papiss Cisse and 25-year-old Jack Colback.

West Ham continued their rise up the table with a third win in three. Sam Allardyce will be particularly pleased with Andy Carroll's return to the score sheet with two powerful headers and an assist in the 3-1 victory over Swansea City. With the Arsenal defence imploding at Stoke on Saturday, Arsene Wenger will be wishing he still had Carl Jenkinson in his team: the defended is on loan at West Ham and set up the Hammers' first goal on Sunday.

Watch the video below to see Tom Sheen and Jack de Menezes discuss the XI players that performed the best this weekend.
