Following an incredulous 4-0 thumping of Chelsea on opening day and a disappointing tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers in week 02, Manchester United, disappointed at Old Trafford, as Crystal Palace scored a late winner to stun them on Saturday.

Liverpool strolled to a comfortable 3-1 win over Arsenal to maintain their perfect start to the season and the top spot on the table. Frank Lampard earned his first win of the season as Chelsea boss courtesy of a double from Tammy Abraham, and a majestic strike from Harvey Barnes saw Leicester City inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on Sheffield United in a pulsating affair.

Norwich City 2-3 Chelsea

Tammy Abraham's double saw Chelsea beat Norwich 3-2 at Carrow Road to hand Frank Lampard his first win in charge of the club.

Norwich City 2-3 Chelsea

Chelsea opened the scoring after just three minutes through Abraham's well-taken goal, only for the hosts to equalize 156 seconds later as local boy Todd Cantwell side-footed home from close range after some lovely build-up play. However, the visitors soon found themselves back in front thanks to Mason Mount's composed finish (17).

Norwich fought back, though, as the in-form Teemu Pukki made it five goals in his first three Premier League appearances to level matters again on the half-hour mark, only for Abraham to win it with his second goal midway through the second half.

Brighton 0-2 Southampton

Nathan Redmond and substitute Moussa Djenepo scored to seal Southampton a 2-0 win at 10-man Brighton, who had a goal ruled out through VAR for the second week running.

The 21-year-old Djenepo opened his Saints account in style when brought on after 53 minutes with an excellent right-footed curling strike two minutes later that was too much for Mat Ryan.

In the closing minutes, Redmond then poked home at the back post after Sofiane Boufal drilled across the face of goal.

 

Manchester United 1-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford thanks to Patrick van Aanholt's injury-time winner.

Daniel James appeared to have earned United a point with an 89th-minute equaliser.

But David de Gea couldn't keep out Van Aanholt's drive as Palace claimed their first win of the new Premier League season.

United had fallen behind in the first half to Jordan Ayew's breakaway goal before Marcus Rashford missed a penalty on a deeply frustrating afternoon for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.

Despite dominating possession, United rarely threatened Palace's goal and the full-time whistle was greeted by a chorus of boos from those remaining inside Old Trafford. Palace's win was their first ever against United in the Premier League era.

Watford 1-3 West Ham

Record signing Sebastien Haller believes that West Ham's opening Premier League victory at Watford can "launch" their season. Haller opened his West Ham account with a tap-in from Felipe Anderson's cut-back.

And he then acrobatically turned the ball home with an overhead kick from three yards after following up from a corner.

Mark Noble's third-minute penalty set West Ham on their way to their first win of the season after Manuel Lanzini had been fouled by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

But Watford responded to level with a well-worked Andre Gray goal, with the forward drilling home a right-foot shot from Will Hughes' pass. West Ham have now lost seven successive games in all competitions for the first time since 1999.

Sheffield United 1-2 Leicester City

A superb Harvey Barnes strike sealed Leicester's first Premier League win of the season, beating Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United 1-2 Leicester city

Sheffield-born Jamie Vardy (38) had scored a fine opener in the first half, but it was cancelled out by Oli McBurnie, nodding home his first Premier League goal in the 62nd minute.

Sheffield United looked to be on top and it took a sensational strike from substitute Barnes to beat them. He hammered the ball into the back of the net on the half-volley.

The win sees Leicester jump 10 places into fourth, while Sheffield United drop one place into ninth as their unbeaten start ended.

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the season and moved three points clear at the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield.

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Joel Matip's header late in the first half gave the home side the lead before Mohamed Salah took the game away from the Gunners with two goals early in the second period.

Salah converted from the spot after winning the penalty himself, then scored a fine solo goal to secure the points, although Arsenal substitute Lucas Torreira did pull one back late on.

The Gunners had their chances in the first half with Nicolas Pepe, on full debut, spurning a one-on-one chance with the score still goalless. Arsenal were a threat on the counter-attack, but invited pressure from the outset as they attempted to play out through Liverpool's pressing.

Sunday

Bournemouth 1-3 Manchester City

Two goals from Sergio Aguero and a Raheem Sterling strike eased Manchester City to a 3-1 win at Bournemouth.

Aguero opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a cool finish from inside the box before Raheem Sterling doubled City's advantage two minutes before the break after being played in by David Silva.

Bournemouth were given a lifeline in first-half stoppage time when substitute Harry Wilson - on for the injured Charlie Daniels - curled home a superb free-kick to reduce the gap to 2-1.

But Aguero showed his poaching skills again in the 64th minute to smash home his second after more good work from man-of-the-match Silva, who was making his 400th City appearance. City moved up second with the win.

Tottenham 0-1 Newcastle

Newcastle got their first points under Steve Bruce as Joelinton's first-half goal gave them a shock 1-0 victory at Tottenham on Super Sunday.

After a summer of discontent, Newcastle got off the mark in the Premier League thanks to some lax Spurs defending, as record signing Joelinton slotted home for his first goal for the club (27).

VAR then denied Spurs a penalty as Jamaal Lascelles and Harry Kane collided in the penalty area with 12 minutes remaining, before Lucas Moura skied a fine chance moments later.

The result already leaves seventh-place Spurs five points behind leaders Liverpool, while Newcastle remain in the bottom three.

Wolves 1-1 Burnley

Raul Jimenez's 97th-minute penalty rescued a dramatic point for Wolves in a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley.

Ashley Barnes thundered in a half-volley from 25 yards with 13 minutes on the clock at Molineux on Sunday, and his fourth goal of the season looked set to send Burnley third in the Premier League table.

But Erik Pieters' challenge on Jimenez in the final seconds of five minutes of stoppage-time gave Wolves the chance to equalise, once VAR had confirmed it was the right decision, and the No 9 made no mistake.

Both sides hit the woodwork although Burnley certainly had the better of the chances. The draw means Wolves are 15th and the visitors sit sixth in the league.
