For the second successive week, Premier League leaders, Liverpool, on Saturday survived the upset, this time on the road, scoring two late goals – including a dramatic injury-time winner from Sadio Man – as they came from a goal down to beat Aston Villa to preserve their unbeaten start to the season and their six-point advantage against Manchester City who had to wait for Kyle Walker’s late winner to complete their comeback at home against a gutsy Southampton side.

Bottommost Watford put up a plucky performance against visiting Chelsea, who extended their recent brilliant run to a fifth straight win after goalkeeper Ben Foster’s stunning headed equalizer in stoppage time was denied by Kepa Arrizabalaga. Arsenal remain winless in their last three league appearances as Wolverhampton Rovers (Wolves) came from a goal down for a point at the Emirates, and Manchester United’s three-game winning run came to an end following a lone goal loss to Bournemouth.

Elsewhere on the day, Newcastle bested West Ham in a five-goal fiesta, Sheffield United scored an impressive 3-0 win over Burnley, and Brighton's revival under manager Graham Potter continued as they deservedly overcame struggling Norwich City by two goals to naught.

And on Sunday, Everton snatched at home against Tottenham, whilst Leicester City reclaimed the third spot from Chelsea following an impressive 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.


EPL Week 11 Standings

EPL Week 11 Standings

Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

Josh King's first-half goal dented Manchester United's recent recovery as they were beaten 1-0 by Bournemouth.

King flicked the ball over Aaron Wan-Bissaka before beating David de Gea in first-half stoppage time as Bournemouth ended a run of 358 minutes without scoring.

They could have added to their lead after half-time, but De Gea pulled off a fine stop to keep out Harry Wilson's low effort, and was grateful to Fred for blocking another Wilson shot after the goalkeeper had slipped.

United enjoyed plenty of the ball but Aaron Ramsdale's goal was never in too much danger until substitute Mason Greenwood struck the post from close-range moments after coming on, but that miss meant Bournemouth leapfrogged their visitors and ended their run of three straight wins.

Arsenal 1-1 Wolves

Arsenal surrendered another lead as Raul Jimenez earned Wolves a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had given Arsenal a first-half lead but Jimenez's 76th-minute header levelled things up to add to the pressure on Unai Emery.

It had already been an awkward week for Arsenal in dealing with the fall-out from Xhaka's outburst but while crowd-favourite Mesut Ozil was restored to the line-up, the Gunners were far from convincing.

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool

Sadio Mane's 94th-minute header gave Liverpool a stunning 2-1 comeback victory against Aston Villa to keep their six-point lead at the top.

With Manchester City fighting back from behind to beat Southampton 2-1, Liverpool's lead looked to be reduced to four points before Mane stooped low deep into injury time to extend their unbeaten run to 28 in the Premier League.

Villa had taken a shock lead during a breathless first half as Trezeguet tucked home at the far post (21), adjudged just onside by VAR, while Liverpool had a leveller chalked off as Roberto Firmino was marked just off by VAR (29).

Liverpool knocked on the door incessantly in the second half, but their leveller didn't come until the 87th minute as Andrew Robertson headed home at the far post, before Sadio Mane's last-gasp winner.

Brighton 2-0 Norwich

Brighton made it three home wins in a row to go up eighth with a 2-0 victory over a lacklustre Norwich.

The Seagulls were full of confidence from the off and deserved a first-half lead but for their careless finishing, while Norwich almost stole an early goal against the run of play when Marco Stiepermann hit the bar.

But the Canaries' resistance was broken by game-changing substitute Leandro Trossard who poked home the opener shortly after his introduction, before his whipped free-kick gave Shane Duffy a tap-in for 2-0.

Brighton went in search for a third and barely gave Norwich a chance as they held on to fly up the league.

Manchester City 2-1 Southampton

Manchester City came from behind to keep the pressure on leaders Liverpool as Kyle Walker's 86th-minute strike secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's side produced a valiant display a week on from their 9-0 thrashing at home to Leicester, and James Ward-Prowse gave the visitors a shock lead at the Etihad (16).

City toiled throughout the first half, but after Sergio Aguero eventually restored parity from Walker's cross (70), it was an unlikely source that broke Southampton's resolve as the full-back struck with four minutes of normal time remaining.

The result leaves second-placed City still six points off Liverpool, while Southampton remain 18th and two points adrift of safety.

Sheffield United 3-0 Burnley

John Lundstram scored twice and Lys Mousset registered a hat-trick of assists as Sheffield United thrashed Burnley 3-0 at Bramall Lane.

The Blades netted all three goals in the first half with the result moving them up to sixth in what has been an extraordinary season so far for the promoted side, while Burnley drop to 14th.

West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

West Ham's brave second-half comeback was not enough to deny Premier League strugglers Newcastle a thrilling 3-2 win at the London Stadium.

The Hammers were shocked by the Magpies' electric start as their centre-backs Ciaran Clark (16) and Federico Fernandez (22) both scored headers from well-worked set-piece routines to put them two up at the break.

The Newcastle onslaught continued in the second half as Jonjo Shelvey whipped in a fantastic free-kick from 20-yards (51) - after earlier hitting the crossbar - to put his side three ahead.

Fabian Balbuena then recorded what seemed to be a consolation goal for West Ham (73) before Robert Snodgrass' excellent late volley (90) left Newcastle hanging on for their victory in the final few minutes. The surprise result extends Newcastle's cushion above the relegation zone to four points, while West Ham - booed off by their fans - drop to 12th.

Watford 1-2 Chelsea

Tammy Abraham scored one and set up another but Chelsea had to weather a late Watford rally to secure a 2-1 victory.

Abraham arrested a run of four games without a goal with a brilliant lofted finish inside five minutes at Vicarage Road - his seventh goal away from home this season - and then turned provider 10 minutes into the second half when his precise cross was tapped home by Christian Pulisic.

A spirited goalkeeping performance from Ben Foster - who made no fewer than eight saves - prevented Chelsea from extinguishing Watford's challenge, which was boosted 10 minutes from time when a controversial VAR-awarded penalty was converted by Gerard Deulofeu.

Watford threw everything at Chelsea in search of an unlikely point but were denied deep in stoppage-time as a towering header from goalkeeper Foster was denied by the fingertips of Kepa Arrizabalaga as Chelsea held on for a club-record equalling seventh consecutive away victory, leaving Watford bottom and without a league win after 11 games.

 

Sunday

Crystal Palace 0-2 Leicester City

Second-half goals from Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy earned Leicester a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace that saw them reclaim third spot in the Premier League.

Turkey international Soyuncu headed his first goal for the club on 57 minutes before Vardy's 10th league goal of the season wrapped up Leicester's seventh win in nine two minutes from time.

Palace had beaten Leicester home and away for the previous two seasons but Roy Hodgson's side were unable to build on last week's comeback at Arsenal as they slipped to back-to-back defeats at Selhurst Park for the first time since March.

Everton 1-1 Tottenham

Cenk Tosun saved Everton a 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the 97th minute after Andre Gomes suffered a horrific ankle injury, for which Heung-Min Son saw red.

Sub Tosun's bullet header cancelled out Dele Alli's opener (63), but the game will unfortunately be remembered for Gomes' injury (79), which forced 12 minutes of stoppage time.

Gomes got his ankle stuck in the turf as Serge Aurier approached after the Portuguese was tripped by Son, and though the South Korean was initially booked, he was then given a red and left the field distressed and shocked.

Everton manager Marco Silva said after the game that he was 100 per cent sure it was not Son's intention to injure Gomes, while Mauricio Pochettino said some Everton players, including captain Seamus Coleman, approached Son after the game to console him in the Spurs dressing room.

The draw doesn't help either struggling side, leaving Spurs without an away league win since January, and Everton in 17th.
