Week 12 saw all of the top four teams record wins, while Spurs fell further behind the pace with a draw at home to Leicester.
Stoke recorded their third league win in a row to rise to 12th and Sunderland are still awaiting their first league win of the season after a 4-1 defeat at home to Arsenal.
Player of the week
Sergio Aguero topped the Week 12 stats guide with 18 TFF points in Manchester City's 4-0 win against West Brom. The striker scored twice and notched up two key contributions as Pep Guardiola's side finally got back to winning ways.
Manager of the week
Michael Ewins from Bournemouth was the manager of the week, scooping himself a £200 first prize. His team, Meov19, chalked up a whopping 130 TFF points.
Sunderland 1-4 Arsenal
Olivier Giroud came off the bench to score twice and ensure Arsenal returned to winning ways after being held to a 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough in Week 11. The Gunners have now recorded seven wins from their last eight league matches, putting them level on points with both Manchester City and Liverpool.
Jermain Defoe's spot-kick gave Arsene Wenger's side a scare, but an eighth defeat of the season means the Black Cats are still rooted to the bottom of the table, seven points from safety.
Star player: Alexis Sanchez (£6.0m), 14 points
The Chilean international scored twice and added a key contribution, taking his tally to 67 TFF points from midfield. The haul has propelled Sanchez to the top of the TFF stats guide, five ahead of Chelsea's Diego Costa.
Manchester United 0-0 Burnley
Burnley held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford, a result that frustrated Jose Mourinho so much that he was sent to the stands at half-time.
The Red Devils are now winless in four league matches, dropping to eighth, while the hard-fought point was welcomed by the visitors who are sitting quite comfortably in 13th.
Star player: Tom Heaton (£2.7m), 6 points
The Clarets' shot-stopper, who came through United's academy, was in unbelievable form to keep a clean sheet. A string of world-class stops from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata ensured Sean Dyche's side left with a point. Was docked a point after receiving a yellow card late on, but still gets the nod ahead of central defender Michael Keane (7 points).
Middlesbrough 2-0 Bournemouth
Middlesbrough recorded just their second win of the season with a comfortable 2-0 victory against Bournemouth.
Gaston Ramirez opened the scoring with a brilliant individual goal, beating a few defenders before coolly slotting past a helpless Artur Boruc. It was the midfielder's first Premier League goal since December 2014, but he'll have to sit out Week 13 after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
Key player: Stewart Downing (£3.8m), 7 points
The 'Boro midfielder put in a tireless performance for Aitar Karanka's side and he was rewarded for his efforts when he turned in Alvaro Negredo's knock-down.
Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Leicester City
Tottenham and Leicester played out a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane, meaning Spurs have now drawn three league matches in a row.
Although their unbeaten start to the season has been maintained, Mauricio Pochettino will be disappointed his side didn't leave with all three points, as Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen both saw efforts come back off the woodwork and Leicester not posing much of a threat aside from Ahmed Musa's equaliser.
Star player: Vincent Janssen (£5.0m), 7 points
Vincent Janssen scored his first league goal for Spurs, smashing home a penalty to give Spurs a first-half advantage. The Dutch striker has yet to score from open play this season, but impressed at White Hart Lane as he was a constant threat in the Foxes' penalty area.
Watford 1-0 Hull City
Watford rose to seventh after grinding out a 1-0 win against Hull.
Hornets duo Younes Kaboul and Roberto Pereyra both saw first half efforts come back off the woodwork and Hull also threatened with Ryan Mason going close. With a 0-0 draw looking increasingly likely, Michael Dawson was unfortunate to turn Daryl Janmaat's cross into his own net and make it four games unbeaten for Walter Mazzarri's side.
Hull have now lost six league matches in a row, scoring just three times during that spell, and their -15 goal difference is the worst across the division.
Star player: Jose Holebas (£2.6m), 7 points
Jose Holebas chalked up another 7 TFF points after he helped to produce Watford's third clean sheet of the season. The Greek defender has now scored 30 points for the 1% of TFF managers that have had him in their side for the last four weeks.
West Brom 0-4 Manchester City
Manchester City finally ended their winless run with a 4-0 victory at West Brom. Sergio Aguero marked his return to Guardiola's starting XI with an 18 point-haul, scoring two sublime strikes to fire City into a 2-0 first-half lead.
Ilkay Gundogan then added two more for the visitors as West Brom went in search of a goal, meaning the Sky Blues are still top of the league, level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool.
Star player: Sergio Aguero (£7.0m), 18 points
No player has scored more than 18 points in a week during TFF 16/17, so Aguero's two goals and two key contributions give even more reason for admiration. The game's most expensive player desperately needed the boost, having gone three weeks without returning any points.
Crystal Palace 2-4 Liverpool
Liverpool took the spoils from Selhurst Park as they condemned Palace to a third consecutive defeat.
James McArthur scored twice for the hosts to cancel out goals from Emre Can and Dejan Lovren, but Jurgen Klopp's side continued to stream forward and added two more courtesy of Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino.
The Eagles had three clear penalties turned down, two fouls on Wilfried Zaha and one on former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke, and in the end it wasn't to be their day as the visitors left with all three points.
Star player: Philippe Coutinho (£5.3m), 11 points
Liverpool's Brazilian maestro produced three key contributions and was unlucky not to get his own name on the scoresheet as he saw a first half header tipped onto the post.
Everton 2-0 West Ham
Everton recorded their first win in four league games by beating West Ham 2-0. The Hammers had previously won consecutive matches but Ronald Koeman's side proved too strong at Goodison Park.
The Toffees are now just four points off the Champions League places and have the added benefit over their competition that they have no European football to contend with.
Star player: Romelu Lukaku (£6.4m), 10 points
The Belgian striker continued his unbelievable scoring streak against the Hammers and was also involved in Ross Barkley's goal too.
Southampton 0-2 Chelsea
Antonio Conte's side made it four back-to-back league wins with a comfortable 2-0 victory at St. Mary's. What's even more promising for the Blues is that the result was also their fourth straight clean sheet, something that will please the Italian tactician immensely.
Star player: Eden Hazard (£5.8m), 10 points
Unsurprisingly, it was Hazard and Diego Costa that were on the scoresheet, with the Belgian notching up his fifth goal of the campaign.
Stoke City 3-1 Swansea City
After a slow start to the new season, Stoke have now won three league matches in a row and extended Bob Bradley's wait for a first win as Swansea manager.
Star player: Wilfried Bony (£5.4m), 12 points
Wilfried Bony was back to haunt his former club, scoring twice as he ended his wait for a first league goal of the season.
