Week 11 of the English Premier League got underway this weekend with title hopeful side, Liverpool, being denied the three points at the Emirates, as Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette scored late to level the scoreline in thrilling encounter.

Manchester United labored to a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Bournemouth, courtesy of Marcus Rushford’s stoppage-time goal, Spurs survived a stirring Wolves fightback for return to the ranks of the top-four teams, and on an emotion filled day, Leicester City honored their owner with a lone goal win over Cardiff City.

Elsewhere on Saturday, it was Newcastle over Watford by a lone goal for their first win of the season, West Ham doubling Burnley by four goals to two, and Everton dispatching Brighton by three goals to one.

And on Sunday, Manchester City stayed the course of their title defense with a 6-1 blanketing of visiting Southampton to move up top of the table; two points better than Liverpool, and second placed Chelsea, who handed Crystal City a 3-1 beating at Stamford Bridge.

And on Monday Night Football, it was Huddersfield over bottommost Fulham by a lone goal.

 

English Premier League Week 11 Standings

 English Premier League Week 11 Standings

Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester United

Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage-time winner as Manchester United came from behind to snatch a dramatic 2-1 victory at Bournemouth.

Rushford rifled home from close range two minutes into time added on as a remarkable late turnaround saw United overcome a resilient Bournemouth defensive display.

Bournemouth took a deserved lead on 11 minutes, thanks to Callum Wilson's sixth goal of the season, but Anthony Martial's fifth goal in five hauled a lacklustre United level against the run of play on 35 minutes.

United laid siege to the Bournemouth goal in the second half but the resolute Cherries, typified by two incredible goal-saving blocks from Nathan Ake and David Brooks, looked to have secured Eddie Howe's men a point. But Rashford struck in the closing stages to secure victory for United.

Newcastle 1-0 Watford

Newcastle recorded their first Premier League victory of the season as Ayoze Perez scored in a 1-0 win over Watford.

Having failed to win any of their opening 10 league games of a season for just the second time in their history, the relief around St James Park' was clear to see when the striker headed home (64).

Rafa Benitez's men had to ride their luck at times as Roberto Pereyra hit the crossbar and Gerard Deulofeu was especially wasteful with his finishing in the first half.

Everton 3-1 Brighton

Richarlison scored twice for Everton as they beat Brighton 3-1, bringing the Seagulls' winning streak to an end.

Brighton were outplayed from the outset, with Richarlison (26) scoring his first in wonderful style.

Lewis Dunk (33) levelled for Brighton, but five minutes after the break Seamus Coleman scored his first goal in almost two years - and an error from Dunk then allowed Richarlison (77) through on goal for his second.

West Ham 4-2 Burnley FC

Felipe Anderson scored twice as West Ham overcame Burnley 4-2 in a pulsating game at the London Stadium.

Marko Arnautovic put the hosts in front after capitalising on James Tarkowski's mistake before Johann Gudmundsson equalised against the run of play on the stroke of half-time.

West Ham regained the lead as Anderson finished off a free-flowing move but Burnley pegged them back again as Robbie Brady set up fellow substitute Chris Wood for their second goal.

With six minutes remaining, Anderson's goal put West Ham in front for a third time and after Wood hit the bar, Javier Hernandez sealed the points in stoppage time with an emphatic finish.

Cardiff City 0-1 Leicester City

Leicester City honoured owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha with a victory as they beat Cardiff City 1-0 on an emotion-filled day at the Cardiff City Stadium.

There were tears and tributes ahead of kick-off to remember Srivaddhanaprabha and the four other people who were killed in a helicopter crash last weekend.

Victor Camarasa hit the bar for the visitors with a free-kick in the first half before Cardiff defender Sol Bamba escaped a red card for a goal-line save with his arm.

Leicester grew into the game and Demarai Gray scored the winner in the 55th minute, finishing from Ben Chilwell's cross and then taking off his shirt to reveal a top with the words 'For Khun Vichai' written across the front.

Cardiff were unable to rally and there were moving scenes after the final whistle as Leicester players, most of whom are travelling to Thailand after the match for Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral, stood in front of the away supporters and applauded for 10 minutes.

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool

Alexandre Lacazette's late equaliser gave Arsenal a 1-1 draw in an entertaining clash with Liverpool at The Emirates on Saturday.

Liverpool hit the woodwork twice through Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk during a frantic but goalless first half and had a fair goal from Sadio Mane disallowed for offside.

The visitors took the lead through James Milner (61) after Bernd Leno had pushed a Mane cross into his path, but Arsenal drew level through Lacazette's sweet finish from 12 yards (82).

The result means Liverpool temporarily go top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City's clash with Southampton on Sunday, while Arsenal remain unbeaten in 14 games.

Wolves 2-3 Tottenham

Harry Kane scored for the first time in four league games as Tottenham moved into fourth with a nervy 3-2 win over Wolves at Molineux.

Two quick-fire Spurs first-half goals looked to have done the damage, with Erik Lamela slotting beyond Rui Patricio (27) and Lucas Moura left unmarked to head in a second three minutes later, although Raul Jimenez's strike shortly after should have cut the deficit but was wrongly chalked off for offside.

Kane netted at the second attempt on the hour to seemingly put the game to bed, but Wolves struck back instantly with Ruben Neves' penalty, before Jimenez added another from the spot with 11 minutes to go to set up a tense finish that saw the Spurs hold on for the 3 points.

Sunday

Manchester City 6-1 Southampton

Manchester City cruised back to the top of the Premier League after thrashing Southampton 6-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The victory was built on three goals in the opening 18 minutes as Wesley Hoedt's own goal (6) was followed by Sergio Aguero's 150th Premier League goal (12) and David Silva's half-volley (18).

Danny Ings' 30th-minute penalty gave Southampton temporary respite, but Raheem Sterling scored in first-half injury-time to restore City's three-goal advantage.

The England international netted his second of the game in the 67th minute before Leroy Sane struck in injury-time to ensure Pep Guardiola's team move two points clear of Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the table ahead of next Sunday's Manchester derby.

Chelsea 3-1 Crystal Palace

Alvaro Morata scored twice as Chelsea reclaimed second spot in the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

The Spain international continued his recent upturn in form as he scored in each half before Pedro sealed the win that extends Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season to 11 games.

Andros Townsend equalised for Palace early in the second half but Roy Hodgson's men were unable to prevent a fifth defeat in six that leaves them 14th in the table.

The victory keeps Chelsea within two points of leaders Manchester City and sees Maurizio Sarri equal the record for the most games without defeat by a new Premier League manager.

Monday

Huddersfield 1-0 Fulham

A Timothy Fosu-Mensah own goal gave Huddersfield a 1-0 home win over Fulham, who replaced the Terriers at the bottom of the Premier League.

Huddersfield's first home goal since April 14 was enough to give them their first win since the same day, and came from a stroke of good fortune when Fosu-Mensah diverted Christopher Schindler's header from a Chris Lowe cross beyond Sergio Rico.

Fulham managed only a solitary shot on target throughout the whole 90 minutes at the John Smith's Stadium to further crank up the pressure on manager Slavisa Jokanovic, whose £100m summer spending has returned only five points from 11 game
