 Marcus Rashford Goal - Hull City vs Manchester United 0-1 (Premier League) 2016


2014/15 EPL Champions – Chelsea – and new boss - Antonio Conte - made it three wins out of three on Saturday with an impressive 3-0 demolition of newly promoted side Burnley FC at the Etihad to move up top of the PL log on Saturday, new Manchester Utd boss – Jose Mourinho – and his expensive unit had their blushes saved for a perfect start to the season courtesy of a 92nd minute tap in from substitute Marcus Rashford who left it late to pierce the hearts of Hull fans who were well on their way to picking up a point, and the third time proved the charm for defending champions – Leicester City – as they overcame Swansea side by two goals to one for their first win of the season with Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan leading the charge.

Danny Rose's second-half strike denied Liverpool all three points as Tottenham came from behind to erase the deficit for a share of the spoils, and Arsene Wenger and his Gunners finally got up and running with a comfortable 3-1 victory at Vicarage for their first PL win of the young season.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Shay Given’s own goal handed Everton all three points against Stoke, David Moyes was denied his first win as Sunderland manager as they played to a tie with Southampton to leave both clubs in search of their win of the season and Scott Dann's injury-time equalizer gave Crystal Palace their first point of the season against Bournemouth.

And on Sunday, Raheem Sterling led the way with his first double of the season to maintain Pep Guardiola’s perfect start to the season as they trounced West Ham by three goals to one, and PL entrants – Middlesbrough – preserved their unbeaten start to the season with a 0-0 tie at West Brom.  

Tottenham 1-1 Liverpool

A second-half strike from Danny Rose earned Tottenham a point against Liverpool as they drew 1-1 in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Reds took the lead late in the first half after Erik Lamela clipped Roberto Firmino just inside the box and James Milner converted the penalty.

After having few chances, Tottenham burst into the game with half an hour to play and made it count as Danny Rose volleyed home in the 72nd minute to earn a point for the hosts.

Chelsea 3-0 Burnley FC

Chelsea continued their perfect start to the season with a comfortable victory over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

The excellent Eden Hazard opened the scoring when he burst forward from halfway early in the first half before finishing low into the corner.

Willian then added a second just before the break with a clinical strike.

Scott Arfield shot wide for Burnley, but substitute Victor Moses wrapped up the win by sliding home a late finish. Victory means Chelsea are currently top of the table with nine points from three games.

Everton 1-0 Stoke City

Everton continued their unbeaten start to the season under Ronald Koeman as Shay Given’s unfortunate own goal handed them a 1-0 over Stoke City at Goodison Park.

Phil Bardsley conceded a penalty for tripping Ashley Williams in the box just after half-time and, though Given did brilliantly to tip Leighton Baines' spot-kick onto the post, the ball rebounded into the net off his head.

Stoke pushed for an equalizer in the second half with Marko Arnautovic their primary threat but were unable to beat the excellent Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

Southampton 1-1 Sunderland

Southampton and Sunderland drew to remain in search of their first Premier League wins of the season.

Black Cats striker Jermain Defoe opened the scoring, smashing in a penalty after being brought down by Jose Fonte.

Home striker Charlie Austin forced Jordan Pickford into a low save, while the Sunderland goalkeeper also kept out Shane Long and Nathan Redmond strikes.

But Pickford was at fault for the equalizer, letting Jay Rodriguez's long-range shot squirm under his body.

Watford 1-3 Arsenal

Arsenal claimed their first Premier League win of the season with a 3-1 victory against Watford at Vicarage Road.

Arsene Wenger's side took the lead in the ninth minute with Santi Cazorla converting from the penalty spot after Alexis Sanchez was bundled to the ground by Nordin Amrabat.

Sanchez doubled the advantage in the 40th minute, converting Theo Walcott's enticing cross before Mesut Ozil added a third in stoppage time at the end of a comfortable first half.

Watford, who handed debuts to Roberto Pereyra and Daryl Janmaat at half-time, upped their game after the break and pulled a goal back through Pereyra (57).

But it proved to be just a consolation as Arsenal made it seven out of seven against Watford in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace 1-1 Bournemouth

Scott Dann scored an injury-time header as Crystal Palace earned a dramatic point at home against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Josh King had given the Cherries a well-deserved lead after just 11 minutes before Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye saw his penalty saved by Artur Boruc.

Eddie Howe's away side were hanging on for long periods in the second half but centre-back Dann powered home a Jason Puncheon cross in the third minute of stoppage time to finally reward Palace's pressure.

Leicester City 2-1 Swansea City

Jamie Vardy and Captain Wes Morgan fired Premier League champions Leicester City to a 2-1 win against Swansea in what was their first victory of the new campaign.

Vardy opened the scoring at a rain-sodden King Power Stadium with a trademark lethal finish in the 32nd minute and Leicester's dominance was rewarded through Morgan's close-range strike early in the second half.

The Foxes squandered an opportunity from the penalty spot when Riyad Mahrez's effort was saved and their problems were added to when Kasper Schmeichel went off injured.

But though Leroy Fer made it an uncomfortable last few minutes when he pulled a goal back for the visitors, Leicester held on for maximum points.

Hull City 0-1 Manchester Utd

Substitute Marcus Rashford scored an injury-time winner as Manchester United finally overhauled a stubborn Hull at a sodden KCOM Stadium.

The 18-year-old - making his first appearance of the season - steered home Wayne Rooney's cross to spark wild celebrations on the away bench.

Moments earlier, David Meyler had blazed over in a rare Hull attack.

But it was a deserved win for United, who had gone close though Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.

United and Chelsea are now the only Premier League sides with a 100% record from three games, with Manchester City - who have two wins from two games - playing West Ham on Sunday.

Sunday

West Brom vs Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season after a 0-0 draw at West Brom in a game where chances were few and far between.

The hosts had the better of the first half, with James McClean denied by a fine save from Brad Guzan, before Salomon Rondon went close to connecting with a dangerous cross.

Saido Berahino made an appearance in the second half, after Tony Pulis revealed he benched the 23-year-old to "clear his mind" as speculation over his future continues, but he couldn't inspire his side to victory.

Manchester City 3-1 West Ham

Manchester City continued their 100% start to the season with a victory over West Ham that took them to the top of the Premier League.

City scored first when Raheem Sterling finished off a superb team move and Fernandinho headed in a second from Kevin de Bruyne's free-kick.

West Ham pulled a goal back in the second half when Michail Antonio nodded in Arthur Masuaku's cross.

Sterling added his second late on when he stroked home from a tight angle.

The season may be in its infancy but already the title contenders have put down a few markers with three games gone.
