The English Premier League continued this weekend with Chelsea, Tottenham and Bournemouth maintaining their perfect start to the season with victories over Arsenal, Fulham, and West Ham for a three-way tie at the summit.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Everton dumped Southampton by a 2-1 scoreline at home, Leicester City scored a 2-0 victory over the Wolves at home, and Newcastle managed a point on the road against newly promoted Cardiff.

And on Sunday, City continued their blistering pace with a 6-1 home obliteration of Huddersfield, Watford scored their second straight win of the young season, and United stumbled to a 3-2 loss at Brighton for their first loss of the season.

Liverpool saw off ten-man Crystal Palace by two goals to nothing on MNF for their second win of the season.

Saturday

Cardiff City 0-0 Newcastle

Kenedy saw a last-gasp penalty saved - having earlier escaped a red card - as 10-man Newcastle missed the chance to snatch victory at Cardiff on Saturday.

Cardiff had the better of the game and should have broken the deadlock when Kenneth Zohore headed wide early in the second half.

Newcastle looked laboured and, after Kenedy avoided a red card for kicking out at Victor Camarasa, substitute Isaac Hayden was sent off in the 66th minute for sliding in from behind on Josh Murphy.

West Ham 1-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth continued their reputation as the comeback kings after recovering from a goal down to beat West Ham 2-1 at the London Stadium.

A Marko Arnautovic penalty (33) had put West Ham ahead in Manuel Pellegrini's first Premier League home game in charge.

However, Bournemouth - who won 21 points from losing positions last season - turned the game around thanks to Callum Wilson's solo stunner (60) and Steve Cook's header (66).

Victory hands Bournemouth back-to-back wins to start the season, while West Ham fall to a second-straight defeat.

Everton 2-1 Southampton

Marco Silva earned a first win as Everton boss as Richarlison's third goal in two games helped them beat Southampton 2-1.

Everton 2-1 Southampton

Theo Walcott finished off a well-worked free-kick with 15 minutes on the clock, when Leighton Baines' short pass was played forward from the edge of the box by Morgan Schneiderlin for Walcott to chip Alex McCarthy.

Richarlison continued his bright start in a blue shirt with a second with half an hour gone, as Walcott turned provider to beat Ryan Bertrand down the right and provide a simple cross for the Brazilian to nod home at the near post. Southampton improved after half-time but Danny Ings' close-range finish from a corner nine minutes into the second half proved a false dawn.

Tottenham 3-1 Fulham

Harry Kane’s first Premier League goal in August helped Spurs to a 3-1 win over Fulham at Wembley.

Tottenham 3-1 Fulham

Lucas Moura gave Spurs the lead on the stroke of half-time with a wonderful curling effort from the edge of the area but Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised shortly after the break with an opportunistic close-range header.

Spurs regained the lead with a quarter of an hour remaining as Kieran Trippier bent in a free-kick from distance before Kane rounded off the victory with a clinical finish.


Fulham, despite a promising performance, are still without a point.

Leicester City 2-0 Wolves

Jamie Vardy was given a straight red card on his first start of the season as Leicester beat Wolves 2-0.

Leicester City 2-0 Wolves

Wolves’ defender, Matt Doherty, gave the Foxes the lead in the 29th minute as he powered a header into his own net, before James Maddison hit home on the stroke of half-time to seal the victory.

Wolves were denied by the woodwork on three occasions and gave the Leicester defence plenty to think about, but were unable to make the breakthrough on a frustrating afternoon.

Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

Marcos Alonso's late goal gave Chelsea a 3-2 win over Arsenal in a frantic encounter in Maurizio Sarri's first competitive game at Stamford Bridge. Alonso swept home from close range after being found by sub Eden Hazard, meaning Unai Emery's Arsenal have lost two from two this season.

Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

There were four goals in a dramatic first half. Pedro (9) and Alvaro Morata (20) capitalised on woeful Arsenal defending to put Chelsea 2-0 up, as both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan missed sitters for the visitors after each goal.

But Arsenal found themselves level at the break through Mkhitaryan's 20-yard effort (37) and Iwobi's close-range finish (41), with both sides visibly neglecting their defensive duties.

Arsenal crumbled again late on to allow Chelsea the winner, continuing the Blues' 100 per cent start in the Premier League under Sarri.

Sunday

Manchester City 6-1 Huddersfield

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manchester City swept Huddersfield aside with an emphatic 6-1 victory on Super Sunday.

Man City 6-1 Huddersfield

City's all-time leading goalscorer was on target twice in the first half (25, 35), either side of a low finish from Gabriel Jesus, as the champions took total control of their first home game of the new Premier League season.

Jon Stankovic tapped in a lifeline for Huddersfield two minutes before half-time, but David Silva's sublime free-kick re-established City's three-goal cushion on 47 minutes. But Aguero sealed the 13th hat-trick of his Manchester City career 14 minutes from the end, before Terence Kongolo's own goal six minutes from time completed the rout as Pep Guardiola's side laid down an early marker in the title race.

Burnley FC 1-3 Watford

Watford put in another impressive performance as they won their second of the season; a 3-1 victory at Burnley on Sunday.

All the goals came at the start of each half, with Andre Gray netting inside three minutes before James Tarkowski's header levelled things up three minutes later.

Burnley saw the better of the first half, but were outdone by two quickfire goals at the beginning of the second period as Troy Deeney (48) slotted home past Joe Hart after a wonderful pass from Abdoulaye Doucoure.

A great solo strike from Will Hughes rounded off the victory two minutes later and despite plenty of Burnley possession, Watford stayed firm at the back to take maximum points from their opening two league games.

Brighton 2-3 Manchester Utd

A devastating first-half blitz from Brighton secured a memorable 3-2 victory over Manchester United on Renault Super Sunday.

Brighton 3-2 Manchester United

There was sheer jubilation inside the Amex Stadium as two goals in two minutes from Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy put Brighton two up inside 27 minutes.

Romelu Lukaku halved the deficit on 34 minutes with a close-range header but there was no respite for the beleaguered United defence as Pascal Gross won and converted a penalty on the stroke of half-time to put Brighton in control.

Paul Pogba scored a penalty in stoppage-time but it came too late to inspire a comeback as Jose Mourinho, in the week in which he accused Manchester City of lacking class, was left to reflect on a gulf in class on the field.

Monday

Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool

James Milner's penalty and Sadio Mane's late strike sealed a 2-0 win for Liverpool against Crystal Palace, who had Aaron Wan-Bissaka sent off.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool

It had been an even opening period when Mamadou Sakho caught the ankles of Mohamed Salah in the area on the cusp of half-time - sending him down - and Milner put the resulting spot-kick past Wayne Hennessey.

Salah was involved again as Palace ended the game with ten men when Wan-Bissakka brought down the Egypt international just outside the box in the 75th minute. It was a straight red card for the youngster, meaning he will miss the next three fixtures.

Mane rounded off the victory in the third minute of added time as Liverpool hit their hosts on the break, with the Senegal forward slotting home to give Liverpool a second win of the season.
