|Lacazette (3′), Giroud (68′, 87′), Sánchez (69′), Özil (72′)||FT|
Arsenal strengthened their position in the Premier League top four as they made light work of Huddersfield to maintain their healthy home form.
The Gunners have now won their last 12 games at the Emirates Stadium and they eased to a 5-0 victory as Mesut Ozil once again starred in front of the home fans.
Alexandre Lacazette gave the hosts the perfect start with his seventh of the season and, although the Terriers rallied, they were blown away in the second half as Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Ozil all struck in a four-minute blitz, with Giroud adding another late on.
|King (79′)||FT||Wood (37′), Brady (65′)|
Burnley’s impressive Premier League season continued as they climbed to sixth in the table with victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
Chris Wood’s first-half tap in set Sean Dyche’s side on their way to a fourth victory in five league games.
Robbie Brady added a well-taken second from a counter-attack as Burnley moved above Tottenham in the top flight.
Joshua King smashed in from close range for a Bournemouth consolation, but the hosts offered very little.
Eddie Howe’s side remain four points above the relegation zone after a first defeat in four Premier League games.
Antonio Conte was sent to the stands for the first time in his Chelsea managerial career as Antonio Rudiger’s goal secured a 1-0 win over Swansea City on Wednesday night.
Conte was dismissed from the Stamford Bridge touchline by referee Neil Swarbrick for contesting a goal-kick, which he felt should have been a corner to the hosts in the 43rd minute.
Despite the Italian’s absence, Chelsea went on to score the only goal of the game when Rudiger headed in a deflected cross in the 55th minute to secure victory, which keeps the champions within three points of second-placed Manchester United and 11 behind leaders Manchester City.
|Everton||4||0||West Ham United|
|Rooney (18′, 28′, 66′), Williams (78′)||FT|
Wayne Rooney scored a stunning goal from his own half to complete a hat-trick as Everton thrashed West Ham in front of incoming manager Sam Allardyce.
The Merseysiders moved up four places to 13th in the table as Rooney latched onto Joe Hart’s scrambled clearance and powered a half-volley beyond the stranded England goalkeeper and into the empty net.
|De Bruyne (47′), Sterling (90’+6)||FT||Romeu (75′)|
Raheem Sterling scored with seconds to spare as Manchester City netted a last-gasp 2-1 win over Southampton.
City took the lead after the break through a deflected Kevin De Bruyne effort, though Oriol Romeu struck with 15 minutes left.
Sterling had a goal disallowed in the 93rd minute, but got the winner with seconds to spare to spark scenes of jubilation at the Etihad.
|FT||Mané (17′ minutes), Salah (77′ minutes, 83′ minutes)|
Mohamed Salah came off the bench to score twice and secure an ultimately comfortable away victory for Liverpool at Stoke that moves Jurgen Klopp’s side up to fifth in the Premier League.
Senegal winger Sadio Mane gave the Reds a controversial early lead, dinking the ball into the net after a marginal linesman’s call.
Stoke believed Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet should have been sent off for a challenge just outside the box on their striker Mame Biram Diouf.
Crystal Palace kept their first clean sheet of the Premier League season as they held Brighton and Hove Albion to a 0-0 draw to earn their first away point of the campaign.
The two sides renewed their top-flight rivalry after 36 years in the Eagles’ first visit to the Amex Stadium since their infamous victory in the Championship play-off semi-final of 2013, and the tension around the ground was reflected by two teams who defended in numbers.
|Leicester City||2||1||Tottenham Hotspur|
|Vardy (13′), Mahrez (45’+1)||FT||Kane (79′)|
Tottenham were left ruing a host of missed chances as Leicester held out to move into the top half of the table with victory at the King Power.
A deft lob from Jamie Vardy and a curling shot from Riyad Mahrez gave the Foxes a healthy half-time lead.
Christian Eriksen contrived to volley wide from six yards out before Harry Kane rifled in with 12 minutes to go.
Fernando Llorente then stabbed over the top from close range as the visitors hunted an equaliser in vain.
|Deeney (77′ pen), Doucouré (84′)||FT||Young (19′, 25′), Martial (32′), Lingard (86′)|
Manchester United survived a second-half fightback from Watford to win 4-2 at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.
Ashley Young’s double and Anthony Martial’s cool finish gave the visitors a 3-0 lead at the break before a Troy Deeney penalty and Abdoulaye Doucoure volley set up an exciting finish until Jesse Lingard’s fine fourth for United ended the contest.
|West Bromwich Albion||2||2||Newcastle United|
|Robson-Kanu (45’+1), Field (56′)||FT||Clark (59′), Evans (83′ og)|
West Brom conceded a two-goal lead to miss out on the chance of a first league win since August as Newcastle ended a run of four straight defeats.
Jonny Evans’ own goal saw Rafael Benitez’s side draw level after Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field had put the home side ahead.
Newcastle improved after Ciaran Clark quickly pulled one back, with Salomon Rondon diverting a corner onto the unlucky Evans and then into the net for the equaliser.
