Premier League 2020/21 season Matchday 3 results: Liverpool triumph over Arsenal as City falter against Leicester
The Premier League produced another thrilling weekend of action during Gameweek 3 of the competition. Read on for all the results.
Following last weekend's record-breaking goalfest, the Premier League returned with big boots to fill as all 10 teams got down to business once again.
Saturday 26 September
Brighton 2-3 Man Utd
In a match of scarcely believable drama, Bruno Fernandes scored a 100th-minute penalty to secure a 3-2 win for Manchester United at Brighton.
Crystal Palace 1-2 Everton
The Toffees maintain their 100% start to the season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the scoresheet for a third successive match,
Tammy Abraham scores a last-minute equaliser to complete a remarkable comeback for the visitors, who were 3-0 down at the break.
Burnley 0-1 Southampton
Danny Ings scores the only goal of the game as he comes back to haunt his former club and help Saints pick up their first points of the season.
Sunday 27 September
Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle
A hugely controversial handball decision gifted Newcastle a point at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Callum Wilson scored a 97th-minute equaliser for the visitors after Eric Dier was adjudged to have handled in the area.
The result was made all the more frustrating for Jose Mourinho given Tottenham should have been out of sight having spurned numerous chances to add to Lucas Moura's 25th-minute opener.
Man City 2-5 Leicester
Jamie Vardy netted a hat-trick as Leicester stunned Manchester City 5-2 at the Etihad to inflict a potentially damaging defeat on Pep Guardiola's side.
Ex-Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez scored an early opener but City were pegged back by a Vardy penalty before turning home Timothy Castagne's cross to put Leicester ahead.
Vardy completed his hat-trick with another spot-kick before James Maddison netted his first goal since New Year's Day to make it 4-1.
Nathan Ake's first goal for City reduced the deficit briefly but Leicester scored yet again through yet another penalty - this time taken by Youri Tielemans with Vardy having been substituted off.
West Ham 4-0 Wolves
West Ham pulled off the shock result of the weekend as they thrashed Wolves 4-0 at the London Stadium with two goals from Jarrod Bowen helping the Hammers on their way.
A Sebastien Haller effort and Raul Jimenez's own goal sealed victory for West Ham who were coached by Alan Irvine in the absence of manager David Moyes - self-isolating after he contracted Covid-19.
Monday 28 September
Fulham 0-3 Aston Villa
Dean Smith's visiting Villa piled misery on Scott Parker's Fulham as they scored three goals and kept a rare clean sheet away from home to pick up a second successive win and consign the home side to a third costly defeat.
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool continued their winning start to the season with an impressively dominant victory against Arsenal as goals from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Diogo Jota cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette's surprise opener.
