Premier League leaders Liverpool and Champions Manchester City both stayed the winning course with a respective three and four to nothing walloping of Burnley FC and Brighton.

For the second consecutive week, Manchester United failed to find the winning column as they were held to one-all tie at Southampton. Chelsea endured another disappointing outing at home as the Blades stormed back from two goals down to deny new boss, Frank Lampard, his first home win of the season. Leicester City and Crystal Palace moved up third and fourth respectively following wins over Bournemouth and A. Villa at home.

Also on Saturday, it was West Ham over Norwich by a double and Newcastle divvying up the spoils at home with Watford.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opportunistic second half equalizer completed an impressive comeback for Arsenal as they salvaged a point against the Spurs in Sunday’s North London derby. Everton were 3-2 winners over Wolves on Sunday.

Saturday

Southampton 1-1 Manchester United

Jannik Vestergaard cancelled out Daniel James' stunning strike as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.

James gave the visitors a 10th-minute lead with an unstoppable diagonal drive - the Welshman's third goal in four games for United - but Vestergaard equalised shortly before the hour-mark when he powered home a cross from Kevin Danso, who was then sent off for a second yellow card.

United pushed for a winner in the closing stages, with James, substitute Mason Greenwood and Ashley Young all going close, but they were unable to make their man advantage count, making it three Premier League games without a win.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Aston Villa

Jordan Ayew scored in his second successive Premier League game as Crystal Palace beat 10-man Aston Villa 1-0 at Selhurst Park.

Aston Villa thought they had scored a last-minute equaliser, but Henri Lansbury's effort was ruled out after Jack Grealish was booked for diving in the build-up.

Palace dominated the feisty encounter in south London, and Aston Villa's cause was not helped when Trezeguet was sent off for a second bookable offence just nine minutes into the second half.

Ayew curled home in the 72nd minute as Crystal Palace deservedly went ahead.

A second Premier League win in a row sees Roy Hodgson's side into fourth with seven points - jumping up six places from kick-off - while Aston Villa move one place down into 18th.

Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

Sheffield United staged a spirited second-half fightback to pick up a deserved 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

After falling behind to Tammy Abraham's first-half double (19 and 43), the Blades responded with great confidence and character after the break.

Callum Robinson (46) swept home just after the break before his cross was deflected into the home team's net by Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma (89) to send the away end wild.

The result means Frank Lampard is still waiting for his first home win as Chelsea manager.

Newcastle 1-1 Watford

Watford earned their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw against Newcastle after an end-to-end contest at St James' Park.

The Hornets took the lead inside two minutes as Abdoulaye Doucoure's deflected shot found Will Hughes unmarked inside the box, but Newcastle levelled before half-time after Fabian Schar's well-taken finish.

Newcastle had the better chances of an end-to-end second half as Isaac Hayden and Schar came close, before Roberto Pereyra nearly stole all three points for Watford but for Martin Dubravka's diving save.

Manchester City 4-0 Brighton

City returned to the summit briefly after Sergio Aguero scored twice in a clinical 4-0 win over Brighton at the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne gave the hosts the lead after just 68 seconds as he met David Silva's cross to convert from close range.

Aguero completed a fine team goal three minutes before the break as the Argentine fired home from De Bruyne's cross, and he added a second 10 minutes into the restart with a trademark strike into the top corner. Substitute Bernardo Silva added a fourth just 17 seconds after coming on (79) as Aguero turned provider. Liverpool’s victory over Burnley saw City drop back to second place.

West Ham 2-0 Norwich City

West Ham sealed their first home win of the season thanks to a comfortable 2-0 victory over Norwich.

Club-record signing Sebastien Haller continued his excellent start to the season for the Hammers, opening the scoring in the 24th minute with his third goal of the season.

Andriy Yarmolenko doubled Manuel Pellegrini's side's lead in the 56th minute with his first goal since September last year, after 10 months out with a torn Achilles, as the Hammers moved up to fifth in the Premier League table.

The defeat leaves Norwich, who drop to 19th in the table after a third defeat in four league games, still searching for their first points away from Carrow Road this season.

Leicester City 3-1 Bournemouth

Leicester City proved too clinical for Bournemouth as they cruised to a 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium.

The game kicked off in frenetic fashion with both sides taking turns to counter, but Leicester struck first after Ben Chilwell hit a long ball behind Bournemouth's defence, with Jamie Vardy latching onto it to lob Aaron Ramsdale.

Bournemouth piled forward at the restart and Ryan Fraser picked out Callum Wilson with the England international hitting a delicious chip over Kasper Schmeichel's outstretched leg to level the scores.

But the Foxes continued to cause all manner of problems for Eddie Howe's defence, with Youri Tielemans tapping his side ahead before the interval and Vardy netting his second of the game midway through the second half. The win moved Leicester to the third spot on Saturday.

Burnley FC 0-3 Liverpool

Liverpool moved back to the top of the table with a dominant 3-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor – a club-record 13th consecutive league victory.

Chris Wood was unfortunate to deflect Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross beyond his own goalkeeper in the 33rd minute and Sadio Mane doubled the lead soon after.

Roberto Firmino sealed the points late on to maintain Liverpool's perfect start as they broke their record of 12 consecutive league victories set under Kenny Dalglish in 1990.

Sunday

Everton 3-2 Wolves

Richarlison netted twice for Everton in a topsy-turvy encounter in which Wolves came from behind twice but eventually lost 3-2 to the Toffees on Super Sunday.

The Brazilian got things rolling early on when punishing a defensive howler from Conor Coady (5), but Romain Saiss fired Wolves level (9) after some tricky work from Adama Traore. In what was a pulsating start to the game, Alex Iwobi - on his full Premier League debut for the Toffees - then headed Everton in front again (12).

Raul Jimenez bravely headed the visitors back into the contest (75), but Everton always carried the greater threat going forward and Richarlison netted the winner with a clever header (80) when rising above Willy Boly, who was sent off in injury-time for a second booking.

Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham

Arsenal came from two goals down to salvage a point as a pulsating north London derby with Tottenham ended 2-2 at the Emirates on Super Sunday.

Spurs raced into a two-goal lead inside 40 minutes thanks Christian Eriksen's 50th Premier League goal and Harry Kane's clinical penalty, after Granit Xhaka's mindless lunge on Heung-min Son in the area.

But Alexandre Lacazette sparked the Gunners' fightback in first-half stoppage-time, ramming the ball past Hugo Lloris, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled the contest with 19 minutes remaining with an opportunistic finish.

Arsenal thought they had claimed the north London bragging rights when Sokratis bundled the ball in at the back post on 80 minutes, but a VAR review found Sead Kolasinac to be offside in the build-up, and Spurs escaped with a point despite looking on course for three in parts.
