Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany both tweet their thoughts as Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge
Manchester City remain in second place behind Manchester United after sharing the points in a goalless draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
There was also a stalemate between Swansea and Liverpool, while Southampton were 2-0 winners against Newcastle, and Tottenham beat West Ham United.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals after a busy Sunday of Premier League football.
Former Liverpool captain Phil Thompson (@Phil_Thompson4) reckons a 0-0 draw at Swansea is a good result: “Nice with a clean sheet and Pepe Reina making crucial saves again. We should have won had the better chances!”
Reds youngster Raheem Sterling (@sterling31) certainly felt the effects of a testing 90 minutes: “Back to Liverpool, tired is not the word!”
Liverpool defender Glen Johnson (@glen_johnson) felt the visitors merited three points: “Unlucky not to get three points!”
Spanish left-back Jose Enrique (@jose3enrique3) agrees: “Unlucky with the result. Should have been a goal… I think was onside but thinking about next game already. We have to beat Tottenham!!”
Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann (@DietmarHamann) is not impressed by Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson: “How much will the club recoup for Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing? £75m the club paid for them!”
Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier (@mattletiss7) is delighted to see his old club win: “Fantastic being at St Mary’s today seeing the boys get out of the bottom three with an excellent victory. Geordies a shadow of last season’s team! Great to see a clean sheet too and no coincidence us picking up points with @jackcork1 back in the side!”
England spin bowler and Newcastle fan Graeme Swann (@Swannyg66) is concerned: “What’s happened to the Toon? Can’t believe we’ve got no points from the last three games. Is Peter Beardsley fit? Get him on!”
Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon (@Aaron7Lennon) is pleased with a 3-1 win against their London rivals: “Big win today fully deserved as well #coys roll on Wednesday – need another win to get us back on track!!!”
City striker Sergio Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) is happy with a point: “It was a tough rival and a rough field. We were missing some capacity to break through but we are still undefeated and in the race.”
Citizens captain Vincent Kompany (@VincentKompany) felt his side could have snuck a victory: “We had good spells and could have got more out of the game. Maybe a draw is not so bad after all. Massive thank you to our fans! #MCFC
City defender Pablo Zabaleta (@pablo_zabaleta) is happy to stay unbeaten: “Disappointed with a point, Chelsea is always a very tough team to beat away. but still unbeaten! Another clean sheet!”
Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) is “worried” for Benítez: “Has Rafa Benítez still got his job? Roman has no patience!”
And England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) chimes in: “Still no win for Benítez. Surprised Abramovich has persisted with him for so long!”
And former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) adds: “Has Rafa been sacked yet??? #justasking”
