With three of the top four teams in the Premier League scheduled to take the field later – Manchester City at Tottenham on Monday night, Chelsea at Burnley, Manchester United vs Everton, and Arsenal at Crystal Palace, all on Sunday, - Liverpool moved up top on Saturday, following a 4-1 humbling of struggling Cardiff City.

Bournemouth continued their fast start with a comfortable 3-0 win over lowly Fulham, Glenn Murray scored his 100th Brighton goal for his side’s third straight Premier League win, and Huddersfield dropped to the bottom of the table after a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Watford.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Leicester City survived the upset at home as they came back from a goal down against West Ham courtesy of Wilfred Ndidi, and Newcastle stemmed recent adversities with a goalless tie at Southampton that saw them extend their winless start to the season.

And on Sunday, Chelsea continued their title pursuit with a 4-0 drubbing of Burnley, Crystal Palace bounced back from recent losses with a 2-2 tie against Arsenal at home, and Manchester United edged past visiting Everton by two goals to one.

On Monday Night Football, Mahrez’s 6th minute goal was enough for the full spoils and a return to the summit as City edged Spurs by a lone goal at Wembley.

English Premier League Week 10 standings

Brighton 1-0 Wolves

Glenn Murray was Brighton's match-winner again as his second-half strike saw his side beat Wolves 1-0 at the Amex on Saturday.

The veteran striker, 35, was in the right place at the right time to side-foot home his 100th goal for the club three minutes after the break.

That was enough to move Brighton up to 11th after a third straight Premier League win for the first time - and the first time in the top flight since 1981 - while Wolves stay ninth in the table following a second defeat in a row.

Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

Newcastle earned a battling point at Southampton to move off the foot of the Premier League table as two teams bereft of confidence played out a 0-0 draw at St Mary's.

Southampton, who remain 16th and two points outside the relegation zone, came closest to breaking the deadlock with Mohamed Elyounoussi, Mario Lemina and Shane Long all spurning good chances.

The Magpies failed to have a shot on target all game, with a wayward effort from Jonjo Shelvey one of few attempts of any note.

Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff City

Sadio Mane's double helped unbeaten Liverpool go top of the table with a well-earned 4-1 victory over Cardiff at Anfield.

The hosts were dominant from the start, with Mohamed Salah giving them a ninth-minute lead with his fourth goal in his last three appearances in all competitions.

Cardiff survived a siege on their goal in the first half before taking the attack to Liverpool in the second, but Mane's 66th-minute strike seemingly ended any hope of a comeback for the visitors.

Callum Paterson deservedly got Cardiff back in it with 13 minutes to go - the first goal Liverpool have conceded in the Premier League at Anfield since February. Instead, late goals from substitute Xherdan Shaqiri (84) and Mane (87) sealed the victory.

Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth

Two goals from Callum Wilson and a David Brooks strike helped Bournemouth defeat 10-man Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage.

Wilson converted a 14th-minute penalty and added a second five minutes from time, after David Brooks (72) had given the Cherries a cushion.

Slavisa Jokanovic's struggling side, who had only one shot on target, stay 18th, while Bournemouth remain sixth.

Watford 3-0 Huddersfield

Huddersfield's wait for their first Premier League win of the season continues after a 3-0 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

Roberto Pereyra gave Watford the lead with a superb solo goal in the 10th minute and Gerard Deulofeu made it 2-0 with a fine individual effort of his own nine minutes later.

Huddersfield had a few good opportunities to respond in the first half, with Philip Billing hitting the woodwork from distance.

But Isaac Success sealed Watford's victory when he tapped in with 10 minutes left to register the Hornets' sixth Premier League win of the campaign as Huddersfield's second-season struggles go on.

Leicester City 1-1 West Ham

Wilfred Ndidi netted a fortunate late leveller for Leicester in a 1-1 draw against West Ham, who had Mark Noble sent off in the first half.

Fabian Balbuena had put the Hammers into a first-half lead (30) but their momentum was lost when Noble was dismissed eight minutes later for an ugly lunge on Ndidi.

Leicester dominated the second period but couldn't find a way through a brave West Ham defensive performance until Ndidi's 25-yard effort deflected into the top corner via the backside of Balbuena.

Angelo Ogbonna missed a glorious chance in injury time for the Hammers but the game ended on a sour note as Leicester full-back Daniel Amartey was carried off, requiring gas and air, after suffering what looked like a serious leg injury.

 

Sunday

Burnley 0-4 Chelsea

Chelsea moved second and to within two points of leaders Liverpool with a commanding 4-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Alvaro Morata's first-half strike was followed by fine long-range efforts from Ross Barkley and Willian after the break before Ruben Loftus-Cheek completed his productive week with a late goal to ensure Maurizio Sarri became the first Chelsea manager to go unbeaten in his first 10 Premier League games.

Morata might have had a hat-trick in the opening 45 minutes, but was denied by two excellent Joe Hart saves, while Willian also hit a post in an eye-catching away performance by the Londoners, who were without the injured Eden Hazard.

Crystal Palace 2-2 Arsenal

Arsenal's 11-game winning run came to an end at Crystal Palace, who scored from the penalty spot twice in a pulsating 2-2 draw on Super Sunday.

Luka Milivojevic, who missed a penalty in the defeat at Everton, put Palace in front from 12 yards (45+1) but a stunning free-kick from Granit Xhaka (51) and a controversial Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal (56) - Alexandre Lacazette appeared to handle in the build-up - seemed to put Arsenal on their way to a record-breaking 12th straight win in all competitions.

However, Wilfried Zaha teased Xhaka into a debatable foul inside the box and Milivojevic stayed cool once again (83) to register Palace's first point at Selhurst Park this season.

Manchester United 2-1 Everton

Anthony Martial's stunning second-half goal helped secure Manchester United a 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

Romelu Lukaku was named on the United bench for just the third time since he joined the club from Everton, but the hosts were ahead at half-time without him thanks to Paul Pogba's rebound from a controversial saved penalty (27) following Idrissa Gueye's trip on Martial.

The Frenchman then curled an unstoppable effort past Jordan Pickford from the edge of the box (49) to continue his fine goalscoring form, before Gylfi Sigurdsson halved the deficit from the penalty spot (77) to make for a nervy finish.

Monday

Tottenham 0-1 Man Chester City

Riyad Mahrez's early goal gave Manchester City a 1-0 win over Tottenham at Wembley to send them back to the top of the Premier League.

Mahrez's close-range finish gave the champions the victory after Kieran Trippier's mistake (6), and the former Leicester man raised his hands to the sky in celebration, afterwards dedicating the goal to Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha following his tragic death.

David Silva somehow missed from close range after the break, and Spurs missed their big chance late on as Erik Lamela struck over the bar from 10 yards with the goal gaping.

The result means Man City remain unbeaten with 26 points out of a possible 30, while Spurs are five points further back in fifth.
