The New Years Day special meant that all Premier League teams were in action, and this meant that there were even more mouth-watering encounters to attract our attention than usual. 

After 20 games, we are now over halfway through this campaign, still we still have no certain idea of which team will win the title and who will fall down to the dreaded Championship.

Manchester United were embarrassingly beaten 2-1 by Tim Sherwood's Tottenham, in a match according to David Moyes, the Red Devils were treated unfairly by referee Howard Webb.

Rene Meulensteen's Fulham invited West Ham to Craven Cottage, with the match being vital for both teams as they looked for their way out of the bottom three.

The Cottagers won the game 2-1 thanks to Kevin Nolan's sending off.

Crystal Palace's resurgence resumed, however they were held to a 1-1 draw in a drab game, they move out of the bottom three, however both Fulham and Sunderland remain in the relegation zone along with newcomers West Ham who were convincingly beaten 3-1 by Arsenal.

Tottenham drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion with interim boss Tim Sherwood looking to undo the damage which was caused by Andre Villas-Boas.

Liverpool could not manage to beat Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City and end the Citizens 100% record at home.

The final score was 2-1 to the Citizens.

Just as we thought that Everton and Stoke were starting a good run of form, both lost.

Sunderland beat Everton 1-0 and the nine men of Stoke were smashed 5-1 against Newcastle, who are now seriously a team to watch.

Here are the top performers of the week, as chosen by GMS Academy member Ollie Gentle.
