Three players break the nine points barrier as Liverpool, Tottenham and Sunderland went into overdrive
Sharpshooter Robbie Keane was the top points scoring player this weekend as it rained goals in the Premier League.
The Republic of Ireland international was selected ahead of Peter Crouch and fired in four of Tottenham's five goals as they smashed newboys Burnley 5-0, netting an extraordinary 12 points.
Fernando Torres inspired Liverpool to a stunning 6-1 win over struggling Hull, scoring three sensational solo goals to bag a hat-trick and nine points.
Fellow Spaniard Albert Riera set up two goals to earn four points as did Israeli international Yossi Benayoun.
Substitute Ryan Babel scored six points for his two goals.
Sunderland hit-man Darren Bent also plundered nine points for his part in the 5-2 win over Wolves.
The result flattered the Black Cats, not that Bent was complaining as he helped himself to one goal and three assists.
Fellow striker Kenwyne Jones bagged a brace worth six points.
Everton defender Johnny Heitinga scored five points for a clean sheet and the assist for Louis Saha's winner against Portsmouth.
Ryan Giggs came off the bench for Manchester United to propel them to victory against Stoke scoring four points for his assist double and Wigan shocked Chelsea 3-1.
