It was all gloom for PL defending Champions – Leicester City – in Week 6 as Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United squad ended their four game losing run with an impressive battering of the latter on the back of a rampant first-half display that saw them put up four goals, Mourinho’s replacement at his former club – Antonio Conte – was not spared from the pressures and uncertainties of the PL as his side capitulated to a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal who won for the fourth straight time, and runaway leaders – Manchester City – continued their majestic run thus far, with Sergio Aguero’s brace leading the way as his side trounced Swansea by three goals to one to help new boss, Pep Guardiola, maintain his perfect start to the season.

Liverpool won for the third straight time in as many outings as they shellacked 10-man Hull City by five goals to one with James Milner hitting a brace from the spot to lift the Reds in into the top four, and Tottenham moved up second on the PL log courtesy of Heung-Min Son’s first half brace in their 2-1 win at newly promoted Middlesbrough.

Also on Saturday, Everton lost for the first time under Ronald Koeman’s charge, Salomon Rondon’s stoppage-time equalizer earned West Brom a point against Stoke City, and the rot continued for Sunderland who lost for the fifth time this season after going down 2-3 at home to Crystal Palace.


On Sunday, West Ham fell to their fourth straight PL defeat on Sunday afternoon as they were beaten 3-0 by Southampton, and on Monday Night, Jeff Hendrick and Michael Keane scored their first ever PL goals for the Clarets as Burnley recorded a morale boosting 2-0 win over Watford.

 

 

Monday

Burnley FC vs Watford


Manchester Utd 4-1 Leicester City

A rampant first-half display gave Manchester United a 4-1 win over champions Leicester at Old Trafford on Saturday.
United captain Wayne Rooney was dropped for the lunchtime kick-off, but it didn't seem to impact United as they raced into a 4-0 lead before half-time.

Chris Smalling's header from a corner put them ahead halfway through the first period, before Rooney's replacement Juan Mata finished off a superb team-move for 2-0.

Marcus Rashford's simple finish from another corner made it 3-0, and Paul Pogba scored his first goal for United with a fine header to make it four as the hosts dominated proceedings.

Substitute Demarai Gray scored a stunning consolation for the champions from 25 yards on the hour mark, but it wasn't enough to start a comeback as Leicester suffered their third defeat in six games this season.


Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

Everton lost in the league for the first time under Ronald Koeman as Junior Stanislas' superb shot gave Bournemouth a deserved victory.

Jack Wilshere hit the crossbar with a deflected shot before Stanislas' 25-yard drive flew into the top corner.

Harry Arter and Callum Wilson also went close as the Cherries won for the second time in the league this season.

Romelu Lukaku's early header was brilliantly saved by Artur Boruc but Everton rarely threatened.

This match produced a 3-3 thriller last season with four late goals and a 98th-minute equaliser from Stanislas, who proved Everton's undoing again.


Liverpool 5-1 Hull City

Liverpool claimed a third straight Premier League win courtesy of an emphatic victory over 10-man Hull.

The Reds controlled the game and led through Adam Lallana's low shot.

Ahmed Elmohamady saw red for handball in the box, with James Milner scoring from the spot before Sadio Mane added a third for the home side.

David Meyler lashed in for Hull but Philippe Coutinho's long-range strike and a second Milner penalty underlined the home side's dominance.

Jurgen Klopp's side are now fourth in the table and the division's second-top scorers behind Manchester City, with 16 goals in six matches - 11 of those coming in their past three.


Middlesbrough 1-2 Tottenham Spurs

Heung-Min Son bagged a first-half brace as Tottenham secured a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough to remain unbeaten and go second on the table.

The Londoners were without last season's Golden Boot winner Harry Kane but their attacking threat was undiminished in the first half.

The visitors were less inspired after the break and an improved Boro side pulled one back through Ben Gibson, but they could not find an equalizer and Spurs are off to their best ever start to a Premier League season.


Stoke City 1-1 West Brom Albion

Salomon Rondon's stoppage-time equaliser secured West Brom a 1-1 draw at Stoke to leave Mark Hughes’ side winless in the Premier League.

Joe Allen had looked to have won it for the Potters when he bundled the ball home via a deflection off Claudio Yacob but Stoke's weakness from set-pieces cost them.

Rondon's header from Darren Fletcher's left-wing corner was too hot for Lee Grant to handle and earned the Baggies a scarcely-deserved point on the occasion of Tony Pulis' 1000th game as a manager.


Sunderland 2-3 Crystal Palace

Christian Benteke's last-minute header left Sunderland waiting for their first league victory of the season as Crystal Palace came from 2-0 down to win.

The Belgian powered home from six yards out after a free-kick to give Palace a third straight league win and leave the Black Cats bottom of the table.

Jermain Defoe had put the hosts in charge with two well-taken goals.

But Joe Ledley pulled one back with a deflected shot before James McArthur's header pulled Palace level.

Sunderland, one of just two teams yet to triumph in the Premier League this season, have not won a league game in September since 2012.


Swansea 1-3 Manchester City

Sergio Aguero's double helped Man City maintain their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season with a 3-1 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Aguero, on his return from a three-match suspension, opened the scoring with a fine finish before Fernando Llorente swiftly equalised with his first goal for Swansea.

Aguero added his second of the game, and 11th of the season, from the penalty spot after Mike van der Hoorn was penalised for an arm across the face of Kevin De Bruyne, and Raheem Sterling completed the scoring.

There was a late injury worry for Pep Guardiola as De Bruyne limped off appearing to hold his hamstring, but the victory makes it six wins from six league games, and 10 in a row in all competitions under the new head coach.


Arsenal 3-0 Chelsea

Arsenal produced a devastating first-half display to dismantle Chelsea and secure a fourth successive Premier League win.

Alexis Sanchez took advantage of Gary Cahill's error to race clear and lift a composed finish over Thibaut Courtois after 11 minutes, and Theo Walcott completed a brilliant move to steer in Hector Bellerin's pass three minutes later.

Mesut Ozil then left N'Golo Kante trailing to expose Chelsea on the counter-attack and steer home Arsenal's third five minutes before the break, after an exchange with Sanchez.

It was little more than damage limitation for Chelsea after that as they fell to their second league loss in a row as rampant Arsenal moved third in the table.

Sunday

West Ham 0-3 Southampton

Charlie Austin scored his fifth goal in four appearances as Southampton condemned West Ham to a fourth successive Premier League defeat.

Austin broke the deadlock in a cagey encounter with a side-foot finish following Ryan Bertrand's pull-back.

Dusan Tadic made it 2-0, collecting a pass from Austin and rounding Adrian before finding the empty net.

James Ward-Prowse's low finish consigned West Ham, who had just one shot on target, to defeat.

The facts are damning for the Hammers. They have lost five of their opening six games in a top-flight season for the first time in their history and are 18th in the table having conceded 16 goals.

Southampton, meanwhile, have won four matches in a row in all competitions and are up to eighth.

 

Burnley FC 2-0 Watford

Burnley's record signing Jeff Hendrick scored his first goal for the club to help his side beat a lacklustre Watford in the Premier League.

The hosts had carried the greater threat and Hendrick headed in from a Steven Defour cross for the opener.

Troy Deeney had a rare Hornets shot saved before Defour crossed for Michael Keane to nod in a second for Burnley.

Isaac Success went close late on for Watford but the Clarets easily held on for a second league win of the season.

The victory moved Burnley level on seven points with Watford.
