Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur all dropped points in the Barclays Premier League this weekend, and feature in the fanatix Premier League flops of the week.
The winners of this weekend in the Barclays Premier League were clearly Manchester United and Liverpool, with the north west rivals the only title contenders that managed not to drop points.
Elsewhere, Chelsea relied on a dodgy penalty to defeat West Bromwich Albion, a lacklustre Arsenal side lost to Man Utd and Tottenham Hotspur floundered against Newcastle United.
Here’s the Premier League flop team of the week.
Steve Harper (Hull City)
Steve Harper conceded four goals for Hull City against Southampton, and was also at fault for at least one of them.
Harper’s clumsy foul on Adam Lallana in the box won Saints the penalty that doubled their lead, and was subsequently booked.
It was a difficult day for the Tigers.
Elsad Zvetoric (Fulham)
In a woeful Fulham performance against Liverpool, Elsad Zvetoric struggled in both defence and attack.
Full backs are expected to provide a constant outlet from goalkeeper, defence and midfield due to space typically being found out wide, but Zvetoric touched the ball just 29 times, made only a single tackle and no interceptions as Liverpool ran riot.
Robert Huth (Stoke City)
Whilst an immense physical presence, Robert Huth can struggle against technical opposition attackers.
Swansea City possess plenty of those, and given that the German is expected to pass the ball out from the back under new Potters manager Mark Hughes, a period of adaptation is required.
Still, Stoke were fortunate to draw 3-3 against the Welsh side given the rather dubious penalty awarded to them late on, and that goals conceded column is a real issue.
Fernando Amorebieta (Fulham)
Fernando Amorebieta arrived at Fulham from Athletic Bilbao with a reputation as something of a brawler, having received the record number of red cards ever in La Liga.
Instead, it is his defending that is being questioned in England, with an own goal from the Venezuelan starting the rout handed out by Liverpool.
Andrew Taylor (Cardiff City)
Andrew Taylor had a torrid time on the Cardiff left as Aston Villa pushed high on their right flank, thanks to Karim El Ahmadi and Leandro Bacuna making plenty of great runs.
Matthew Lowton came on for Villa in the second period to replace El Ahmadi, and caused even more problems for Taylor with an assist.
