West Ham 2 – 3 Tottenham

It was another tough weekend for West Ham as they went down to local rivals Tottenham in a close fought match. Tottenham should have had the match put away after going 3 goals ahead thanks to 2 from Harry Kane and one from Christian Eriksen but West Ham made a brave come back in the second half. After Spurs went down to 10 men West Ham almost grabbed an unlikely draw but ultimately lost the game. Spurs remain unbeaten on the road.

Huddersfield 0 – 0 Burnley

Huddersfield and Burnley played out a bore draw at Turf Moor. Both sides had chances to win the game but ultimately both were happy to settle for a draw. Both may regret that later in the season.

Everton 2 – 1 Bournemouth

Everton eased the pressure on manager Ronald Koeman with a 2-1 win at home to Bournemouth. Pressure had been mounting on the blues boss but after a win in md week at Sunderland and now a home victory in the Premier League things are looking a lot more rosy. Everton found themselves 1-0 down but 2 goals from substitute Oumar Niasse sealed the points and moved Everton up to 13th in the table.

Manchester City 5 – 0 Crystal Palace

Manchester City won 5-0 against a poor Crystal Palace side. Reports before the game indicated that a Man City victory had the shortest priced odds in Premier League history. The bookmakers turned out to be right as Man City strolled to an easy win over Palace. That makes it 6 games in a row now for Palace with no wins and no goals. An extension of the record they set last week when it became 5 games. Things look to get no easier with Man Utd up next.

Southampton 0 – 1 Manchester United

Manchester United secured a hard fought win at Southampton to continue their great start to the season. Record signing Romelu Lukaku scored the winning goal. That makes it 6 goals already this season for Lukaku.

Stoke City 0 – 4 Chelsea 

Chelsea also had a comfortable victory against an unpredictable Stoke City side. Alvaro Morata scored a superb hat trick to keep Chelsea in pursuit at the top of the table. Morata was signed for £60m in the summer to replace the now deprating Diego Costa. Pedro added the fourth for the London club.

Swansea 1 – 1 Watford

Richarlison scored in the 90th minute for Watford survived as they survived a Swansea City fightback at the Liberty Stadium. After losing 6-0 last week to Manchester City, Watford were in need of a morale boosting victory and they got it here. The win moved Watford up to 6th in the table and continues what has been a very impressive start to the league campaign.

Leicester City 2 – 3 Liverpool

Liverpool were lucky to leave with all 3 points. Jamie Vardy missed a late penalty which would have given them a deserved draw. Coutinho scored a fantastic free kick to put Liverpool 2-0 ahead after Salah had opened the scoring. Okazaki hot back for the home side deep into first half injury time. Liverpool should have been able to put the game to bed after Henderson put them 3-1 up but a mistake at the back left Vardy with an open goal to make it 3-2. Vardy missed the crucial penalty that would have given his side a share of the points.

Brighton 1 – 0 Newcastle

Brighton secured a hard fought victory against Newcastle whose winning run comes to an end. Before this game they had won 3 on the bounce in the league but were stopped in their tracks today as they were unable to break down a resilient Brighton team. Tomer Hemed scored his second goal of the campaign to secure the points for the home side.
