Twice Chelsea have travelled to Manchester this season and on both occasions they have been denied a victory by late goals.
Manchester City, though, were unable to take advantage of that favour from their neighbours as they went down 2-1 away at West Ham United, while Southampton continued their good start to the new campaign by beating Stoke City 1-0.
Here, Sports Mole has picked out the 11 Premier League players that made the biggest impression on us over the course of the weekend.
Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea)
The young Belgian had more to do against United than in recent weeks, but he responded well by making a weekend-high six saves.
Leighton Baines (Everton)
Another outing for Baines and yet another assist to go with his solid defensive display. There are few better left-backs in the Premier League.
James Collins (West Ham United)
While West Ham were good value for their victory in an attacking sense, Collins made a host of crucial clearances and tackles at the other end.
Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle United)
Sometimes a figure of ridicule, the frizzy-haired Argentine was back to his best as Newcastle battled back to claim all three points at White Hart Lane.
Carl Jenkinson (West Ham United)
With all the defensive injuries at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger may be ruing the decision to loan out Jenkinson. Playing at right-back, the England Under-21 international performed well in both halves of the pitch.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea City)
It seems that the Icelander only deals in assists. Two more against Leicester ensured that it was a creative display from the playmaker.
Alex Song (West Ham United)
The Barcelona loanee arguably put in the performance of the weekend at Upton Park. He was energetic, tenacious and clever in possession to help West Ham claim all three points.
Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United)
The £28m man look destined for the Old Trafford exit door in the summer, but he is starting to make the most of what must be his last chance to impress. In the first half, Chelsea couldn't handle his clever runs into space and he also played a key role in the equaliser.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
Both of the Chilean's goals may have been gifted to him by Sunderland, but it was a lively showing from the wideman.
Samuel Eto'o (Everton)
However old he is, Eto'o rolled back the years with a great brace at Burnley. His first goal was a powerful header, while the second from distance left Tom Heaton no chance.
Wilfried Bony (Swansea City)
The Ivorian had struggled for goals this season, but his double against Leicester suggested that he is close to regaining his best form.
Numpty of the week
Vito Mannone: It seems a little cruel to give Mannone this dubious honour, largely because he looked distraught when he came off the pitch. Having conceded eight at Southampton a week earlier, the Italian would have been desperate for a quiet afternoon. Sadly for him, it was anything but that.
Arsenal's first goal was mainly Wes Brown's fault, although Mannone did go down early, which made Sanchez's mind up for him. It was in the 90th minute, though, where the Sunderland goalkeeper would have wanted the ground to swallow him up. Having had the ball passed back to him unexpectedly by Will Buckley, Mannone seemed to panic and instead of clearing the ball, he laid a chance on a plate for Sanchez to score a second goal.
Goal of the week
Samuel Eto'o - Burnley vs. (Everton): His header was a good one, but it was Eto'o's second goal of the afternoon that had his fans reminiscing of his days at Barcelona. It was a swerving effort from 25 yards that left Heaton in the Burnley net grasping at thin air.
