Jose Mourinho and Chelsea's downward spiral continued into week 11 of the PL season as they bottomed out to their 6th loss of the season, their third at the Stamford Bridge thus far in a 1-3 loss to Liverpool as Jürgen Klopp secured a hugely impressive first PL win since taking charge at Anfield.

A late Yaya Toure penalty secured victory for leaders Manchester city as they edged Norwich City at the Etihad to stay top of the PL, and not to be outdone Arsenal kept pace for the top spot with an impressive 3nil win at Swansea.

Manchester United extended their goal drought to well over 5hours as they failed to score for the third game in a row, holding out for a goalless draw at Crystal Palace.

Elsewhere, an inspired Jack Butland denied Newcastle as Stoke held on for a point, Ighalo's double was all that counted in Watford's 2nil victory over West Ham and Leicester came from behind for a 3-2 win over West Brom in a tightly contested game.

And on Sunday, Arouna Kone fired a first ever Everton hat-trick in his side's 6-2 demolition of visiting Sunderland, and Steven Davis and Graziano Pelle helped Saints win the south coast clash by 2 goals to nothing over Bournemouth.

Tottenham defeated  Aston Villa 3-1 on Monday night, condemning the latter to their 7th straight defeat of the season.

 

Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

A brace from Philippe Coutinho and a late strike from Christian Benteke was enough to give new Liverpool boss, Jürgen Klopp his first PL victory on his third try.

Chelsea had the perfect start when Ramires who just inked a new contract to stay at Stamford Bridge till 2019 headed them into the lead after only three minutes but Liverpool's confidence was not dented and Philippe Coutinho equalised spectacularly in first-half stoppage time.

Coutinho put Liverpool ahead with a shot that deflected off John Terry with 16 minutes left before substitute Christian Benteke wrapped up a victory Klopp's side thoroughly deserved.

The defeat means this is Chelsea's worst start to a league season since 1978/79 with Mourinho losing nine of his last 17 games in all competitions compared to just four defeats in 54 games last season.

Crystal Palace 0-0 Manchester United

Louis van Gaal's team had plenty of possession but created little as they weathered an early storm after Palace's Yannick Bolasie hit the bar.

Wayne Rooney's first-half free-kick was saved but Palace had the better chances with Yohan Cabaye going closest.

It is the first time since 2005 that United have registered three successive goalless draws in all competitions.

They remain fourth in the Premier League but are now four points behind leaders Manchester City and second-placed Arsenal.

Manchester City 2-1 Norwich

Yaya Toure's late penalty bailed out Joe Hart and secured three points for Manchester City in a narrow 2-1 win over Norwich City at the Etihad Stadium.

Nicolas Otamendi opened the scoring for City in the 67th minute, before Hart's error allowed Cameron Jerome to tap home with seven minutes to play.

But there was late drama as Manchester City were awarded a penalty and Norwich captain Russell Martin sent off for handball and the denial of a goal-scoring opportunity in the 88th minute. That gave Toure the chance from the spot, and the Ivory Coast international made it nine successful penalties out of nine in the PL to put City ahead.

Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

Jack Butland was in inspired form as Stoke held Newcastle to a goalless draw at St James' Park on Saturday.

The England goalkeeper proved to be the difference on Tyneside, preserving parity on several occasions with a host of exceptional saves as Newcastle pushed for what would have been a deserved breakthrough.

Aleksandar Mitrovic's header was the closest either side came to scoring in an uneventful first half, but his effort struck the post having evaded the reach of Butland and the second half was much the same.

With the tie, Newcastle momentarily leapfrogged Sunderland, who play against Everton on Sunday, into 18th position.

Swansea 0-3 Arsenal

Arsenal kept up the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City with a ruthless second-half dismantling of Swansea City.

The Gunners were second-best in the first period and had a couple of narrow escapes with Swansea's Bafetimbi Gomis squandering the best chance of an entertaining but goalless first half.

Olivier Giroud headed Arsenal in front soon after the restart, before Laurent Koscielny seized on an error by former Gunners goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to double their lead.

Joel Campbell struck on his first Premier League start to seal victory and keep Arsenal, missing several key players because of injury, level on points with Manchester City, who have a superior goal difference.

For Swansea, the result is a setback after ending a six-game winless run against Aston Villa in their previous outing.

Watford 2-0 West Ham

Odion Ighalo scored either side of half-time as Watford broke into the Premier League top 10 with a 2-0 win over West Ham.

The hosts were worthy winners and although Ighalo's first goal owed a debt of gratitude to a critical touch from Hammers defender Aaron Cresswell, his second was an excellent strike which ended the game as a contest early in the second half.

To add to West Ham's troubles, they had centre-back James Collins sent off five minutes from time for a clumsy challenge on Ighalo.

Watford moved to the 9th spot as a result, while their opponents slipped to 5th courtesy of Manchester United's draw at Crystal Palace.

West Bromwich 2-3 Leicester

Jamie Vardy scored in his eighth consecutive Premier League game as Leicester came from behind to win 3-2 at West Brom.

The home side took the lead through Salomon Rondon's header on the half-hour mark, but Riyad Mahrez struck twice after half-time, the second from an offside position, to turn the game on its head.

Vardy then joined Ruud van Nistelrooy and Daniel Sturridge in netting in his eighth straight game before substitute Rickie Lambert pulled one back for the Baggies with a late penalty.

 Sunday

Everton 6-2 Sunderland

Aroune Kone fired a first Everton hat-trick as his side hit six past Sunderland in a frantic 6-2 victory at Goodison Park.

Despite Sunderland hitting the post twice in the opening 20 minutes, Everton took the lead against the run of play in the 19th minute with the excellent Gerard

Deulofeu sliding the ball under Costel Pantilimon.

Kone doubled his side's advantage 12 minutes later but Sunderland got back into the game with goals from Jermain Defoe and Steven Fletcher either side of the half-time interval.

An own goal from S'land's Sebastian Coates sparked a burst of three goals in eight minutes for the home side.

First, Romelu Lukaku added his side's fourth in the 60th minute before Kone scored the fifth just three minutes later and he was celebrating again 14 minutes from time as he completed his treble.

The win moved Everton to 9th while Sunderland has the 19th spot on a total of 6points.

Southampton 2-0 Bournemouth

Southampton beat Bournemouth 2-0 at St Mary's on Sunday afternoon to continue their recent good form in the Premier League.

The Saints took the bragging rights in the south-coast clash thanks to first-half goals in quick succession from Steven Davis and Graziano Pelle.

And despite having midfielder Victor Wanyama sent off with 12 minutes left to play, the home side held on to move up to seventh in the table after just one defeat in their last nine league contests.

 
Monday


Tottenham 3-1 Aston Villa

Remi Garde watched from the stands as Aston Villa were beaten 3-1 at Tottenham to fall to a seventh straight Premier League defeat.

Goals from Mousa Dembele (3) and Dele Alli (45) at either end of the first half sent Spurs on their way to fifth place on Monday night, although Jordan Ayew's deflected reply sparked an unlikely late rally (79) which was only snuffed out by Harry Kane's injury-time third.

Twice in the closing minutes Villa came close to an equaliser, but in the final analysis Spurs remain unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening weekend, while Villa have not won in 10 attempts since their victory at Bournemouth on the same day.
