Wolves scored a comfortable 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace on Friday night. New signing Rayan Ait-Nouri made an instant impact and bagged his first goal for the club and Daniel Podence added a second in the first half as well.

Palace never looked like getting back and their fight was snuffed out when Luka Milivojevic was sent off in the 86th minute.

Sheffield United 0-1 Manchester City

Kyle Walker scored his first Premier League goal away from home at Bramall Lane and it was enough to secure all three points Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s men played well enough to score more with Ferran Torres and Bernardo Silva coming close to hitting the back of the net.

Sheffield United’s problems upfront continued as they again failed to create many clear cut chances.

Burnley 0-3 Chelsea

Hakim Ziyech scored his first Premier League goal for Chelsea in the first half at Turf Moor to get the Blues on the way to a win.

Frank Lampard’s men dominated proceedings and Kurt Zouma and Timo Werner scored in the second half to round off a comfortable away win for Chelsea.

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham

Pablo Fornals gave West Ham an early lead at Anfield against Liverpool but the Premier League champions fought back well. Mohamed Salah converted a penalty just before half time to level things up.

The Reds pushed for a winner after the break and the breakthrough finally came when Diogo Jota pulled off a smart finish in the 85th minute to earn all three points for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Aston Villa 3-4 Southampton

A James Ward-Prowse inspired performance earned Southampton the three points in an exciting game at Villa Park.

The Saints went into injury time 4-1 ahead but two goals from Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish had the Southampton fans sweating in the final seconds. But the away side managed to hold onto the points.

Newcastle United 2-1 Everton

Everton’s early season form is petering off as they slumped to their second Premier League defeat in a row at Newcastle.

Callum Wilson scored twice in the second half for Newcastle and while Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for Everton in injury-time, the home side managed to get the win over the line.

Manchester United 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal won their first league game away at Old Trafford since 2006 through a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the second half.

Manchester United failed to capitalise on their momentum from Europe and their torrid run at home in the Premier League this season stretched for one more week.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Brighton

Harry Kane scored a penalty in the first half to give the lead to the home side but Tariq Lamptey’s 56th-minute strike gave Brighton a shock equaliser.

But Spurs continued to push for a winner and it came via Gareth Bale who scored his first goal for Tottenham since returning to the club in the summer.

Fulham 2-0 West Brom

In an early season relegation six-pointer, Fulham managed to bag all three points against West Brom at home.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid and Ola Aina gave the Cottagers a two-goal lead in the first half and it was enough to carry the home side to a win against the Baggies.

Leeds United 1-4 Leicester City

Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans gave Leicester City a two-goal lead within the first 21 minutes of the game at Elland Road.

While Stuart Dallas pulled one back for Leeds before half-time, Jamie Vardy restored the two-goal cushion in the 76th minute and Tielemans added another through a penalty in injury time to make the scoreline more comfortable for the Foxes.
