Saturday saw 16 of 20 teams in action during Matchday 15 in the English Premier League that provided its fair share of shock results and great matches. 

It's just another instalment in what has been a wacky season in England, where the usual suspects aren't exactly where many expected.

Here is a look at the updated table after Saturday's games:

Leicester City remain in first-place after a convincing 3-0 win over Swansea City thanks to Riyad Mahrez's hat-trick. Manchester City's loss to Stoke City gave the Foxes a two-point advantage on the top spot. 

Mahrez led all scorers on Saturday, which would have been a delight to fantasy owners that had him in their lineups.

Only one other player scored more than one goal on Saturday, and the Premier League's top fantasy performers can be seen below:

Leicester, in just their 10th season in the Premier League since its inception in 1992, have never finished higher than eighth in the top flight. The way things are going now, that could change. 

Once a minnow of the English game, Leicester weren't the only smaller side that saw success.

Bournemouth, who are playing in the top division of English football for the first time ever in their 125-year history, defeated defending champions Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. 

It's quite an unlikely win, as ESPN's Darren Rovell pointed out:

AFC Bournemouth, a soccer club valued at less than $3 million in 2011, beat mighty Chelsea, today valued at $1.4 billion, on the road today.

The loss gives Chelsea just 15 points through their first 15 games as they are rooted to 14th-place in the league. 

But seeing one of the giants struggle like this is what makes the Premier League so alluring. In any given campaign, even the best sides can be defeated as parity is becoming more and more prevalent.
