Burnley10Newcastle United
Hendrick (74′)FT

Burnley marked Sean Dyche’s fifth anniversary as manager with a win as Jeff Hendrick’s second league goal of the season proved enough to sink Newcastle.

A game low on quality was heading for a goalless conclusion when Hendrick tapped home Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s fine cross after Rob Elliot had beaten away Jack Cork’s effort.

Newcastle had earlier gone close when Ayoze Perez’s curling attempt from the edge of the penalty area forced Nick Pope into a full-stretch diving save.

Brighton and Hove Albion11Southampton
Murray (52′)FTDavis (7′)

Glenn Murray scored his third goal in two games as Brighton recovered from going a goal behind to earn a draw against Southampton.

The Saints took the lead after only seven minutes when Steven Davis reacted quickest to the loose ball, after James Ward-Prowse’s excellent free-kick came off the angle of post and bar.

Defender Shane Duffy came close to equalising for the Seagulls with a header before the home side drew level on 52 minutes, when 34-year-old Murray nodded in from Pascal Gross’ cross.

Leicester City20Everton
Vardy (18′), Gray (29′)FT

Everton’s misery was compounded in a 2-0 defeat to Leicester in David Unsworth’s first Premier League game in charge since Ronald Koeman’s sacking.

Jamie Vardy finished a lightning fast counter-attack for the Foxes before Jonjo Kenny’s embarrasing mis-kick found its way into the back of the net.

The Toffees’ caretaker manager, who once again left out Davy Klaassen to raise more eyebrows, attempted to find a route back into the game by sending on Oumar Niasse.

It was to no avail though as the Foxes stood firm and gave their fans optimism for the weeks and months ahead under Puel.

Manchester United10Tottenham Hotspur
Martial (81′)FT

Anthony Martial’s late winner kept Manchester United in second place in the Premier League as they edged out Spurs in a hard-fought encounter at Old Trafford.

Martial’s introduction for Marcus Rashford after 70 minutes was not well received by some Manchester United supporters – but manager Jose Mourinho’s move proved to be a masterstroke as the French striker raced on to Romelu Lukaku’s header to beat Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris with only nine minutes left.

It was a narrow victory United just about deserved after creating the better chances in the second half, Lukaku producing an outstanding save from Lloris and hitting the woodwork with a header.

Arsenal21Swansea City
Kolasinac (51′), Ramsey (58′)FTClucas (22′)

Arsenal came back from a goal behind at half-time to beat Swansea 2-1 in the Premier League at the Emirates on Saturday.

Despite having little possession in the first half, Swansea took the lead through Sam Clucas’ neat finish (22) from Tammy Abraham’s superb through ball.

Arsenal levelled through Sead Kolasinac after the break (51), before Aaron Ramsey completed the turnaround just seven minutes later with a guided left-footed effort from eight yards.

Crystal Palace22West Ham United
Milivojevic (50′ pen), Zaha (90’+7)FTHernández (31′), A Ayew (43′)

Goals from Chicharito and Andre Ayew were not enough to secure West Ham United a first away league win of the season after a very late equaliser by Wilfried Zaha in a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

A clever flicked finish from Chicharito on 31 minutes was followed up by a fantastic strike by Ayew moments before half-time, giving the forward three goals in his last two matches.

Palace got a goal back after the interval via the penalty spot through Luka Milivojevic while Joe Hart produced some moments of brilliance in goal, most notably a double stop just before the half-time whistle.

But, despite a gallant effort, West Ham’s resolve was broken seven minutes into injury time as Zaha squeezed home with virtually the last kick of the game.

Liverpool30Huddersfield Town
Sturridge (50′), Firmino (58′), Wijnaldum (75′)FT

Liverpool overcame a first-half penalty miss to sweep aside Huddersfield Town with a comfortable 3-0 Premier League victory at Anfield.

David Wagner frustrated his mentor Jurgen Klopp in the opening exchanges as Jonas Lossl saved Mohamed Salah’s first-half penalty to send the Terriers in level at the interval.

But Liverpool were a different prospect after the break as Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum all found the net to hand Klopp a win against his best man and best friend Wagner.

Watford01Stoke City
FTFletcher (16′)

Darren Fletcher said victory at Watford was “what was needed” as Stoke City held on to win away from home for the first time this season.

Fletcher scored a sweet volley from a Xherdan Shaqiri corner to ease the pressure on boss Mark Hughes.

West Bromwich Albion23Manchester City
Rodriguez (13′), Phillips (90’+2)FTSané (10′), Fernandinho (15′), Sterling (64′)

Leroy Sane inspired league leaders Manchester City to their eighth successive Premier League win with victory at West Brom, but manager Pep Guardiola warned his side must be more clinical in front of goal.

City had 78% of the possession and created 15 chances in total, but were made to hang on at the end after Albion substitute Matt Phillips scored in stoppage time.

AFC Bournemouth01Chelsea
FTE Hazard (51′)

Eden Hazard’s goal early in the second half was enough to earn his side three points and leave them fourth in the Premier League.

The Belgian hit a firm shot past Asmir Begovic at the goalkeeper’s near post after defender Simon Francis failed to cut out a ball over the top.
