Arsenal reaped the benefits of a fast start as they continued their fine run with victory at Leicester on Saturday, with goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in inspired form.
Gabriel Magalhaes and Emile Smith Rowe – with his fourth goal in seven games – had the visitors on top within the opening 20 minutes at the King Power Stadium and Arsenal headed back down the M1 with a 2-0 win after stoutly defending their advantage.
The victory is a seventh in nine across all competitions for Mikel Arteta’s side, who showed glitz and guile in equal measure to outfox Leicester.
Watford 0-1 Southampton
Che Adams scored the only goal of the game as Southampton snatched a 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road.
Adams collected the ball on the edge of the area and turned before chipping the ball into the top corner and out of reach of the goalkeeper in the 19th minute.
Southampton had 12 shots but just one was on target as they secured a first away Premier League win since March.
Brighton came closest of any opponent in six months to ending Liverpool’s 24-match unbeaten run as Graham Potter’s side recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Anfield.
After last week’s demolition of Manchester United, the sight of the hosts establishing what appeared a comfortable advantage after only 24 minutes thanks to Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane appeared to spell trouble for the Seagulls.
However, pre-match Jurgen Klopp had said he expected a tough examination and that is what he got as Enock Mwepu’s first Premier League goal just before half-time was followed by a Leandro Trossard equaliser and in fairness Brighton had better chances to win it from that point.
Reece James crashed home a second-half double as Chelsea beat Newcastle 3-0 at St James’ Park to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
England defender James produced a brilliant finish midway through the second period and then made it 2-0 by driving home a rebound before Jorginho sealed victory by converting a late penalty.
The Blues moved three points clear at the top with their fourth-successive Premier League win.
Crystal Palace ruined Pep Guardiola’s 200th Premier League match in the Manchester City hotseat as Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher secured a win as impressive as it was surprising against the 10-man hosts.
Few predicted Saturday afternoon ending in anything other than celebration for the reigning champions, yet the well-drilled visitors triumphed thanks to an intelligent and energetic performance.
Zaha fired Palace into an early lead at the Etihad Stadium after capitalising on a mistake by Aymeric Laporte, whose afternoon got worse when he was sent off for hauling down the Palace star late in the first half.
Gabriel Jesus thought he had levelled until VAR ruled out the goal for offside, with on-loan midfielder Gallagher wrapping up a 2-0 win late on to send those from south London wild.
Burnley registered their first win of the Premier League season as they beat Brentford 3-1 at Turf Moor on the day Sean Dyche reached nine years as Clarets boss.
The hosts netted three times without reply in the first half, with Chris Wood lashing the opener past Premier League debutant Alvaro Fernandez in the fourth minute.
Matt Lowton added a header in the 32nd and Maxwel Cornet then struck to make it 3-0 four minutes later.
Brentford substitute Saman Ghoddos pulled a goal back with 11 minutes of normal time remaining, but the visitors were unable to spoil Dyche’s anniversary as his side took maximum points for the first time in 10 league outings this season, and 13 including the end of last term.
It saw Burnley move out of the relegation zone, up a place to 17th, while Thomas Frank’s Bees remain 12th after their third successive league defeat.
Manchester United eased the pressure on under-fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with an easy 3-0 win at Tottenham which saw the heat turned up on Nuno Espirito Santo.
Solskjaer is battling for his job after last weekend’s 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool, but as has been the case so often during his reign at United, his team delivered a result when he needed it the most.
A brilliant goal by Cristiano Ronaldo – his 11th against Tottenham, the most of any English opponent – and second-half strikes from Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford saw United coast to the points in north London and gave the Norwegian a bit of breathing space.
Sunday 24 October
Raphinha and Rodrigo grabbed second-half goals to earn Leeds a 2-1 win that continued Norwich’s nightmare return to the Premier League.
A crazy four-minute spell after the break settled the game as Marcelo Bielsa’s men picked up a second top-flight victory of the season.
Raphinha opened the scoring in the 56th minute before Andrew Omobamidele levelled, but the Canaries succumbed to Rodrigo’s long-range effort that slipped through Tim Krul’s grasp as their winless run in the Premier League extended to 20 matches.
Aston Villa 1-4 West Ham
West Ham won 4-1 at Aston Villa to move into the top four in the Premier League and round off a wonderful week for David Moyes’ side.
The Hammers defeated London rivals Tottenham last weekend and reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup with a penalty shoot-out victory against holders Manchester City, before putting 10-man Villa to the sword.
Villa boss Dean Smith will feel everything that could go wrong did go wrong as his team slipped to a fourth successive Premier League defeat.
Long-range strikes from Ben Johnson and Declan Rice saw Moyes’ men head into half-time in front, after Ollie Watkins had equalised for the hosts.
Ezri Konsa’s red card shortly after the break gave Villa an uphill task and further goals from Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen inside the final 10 minutes settled the contest.
Monday 1 November
The Premier League weekend wraps up on Monday night where Everton visit Wolves at Molineux looking to bounce back from the 5-2 thrashing at home to Watford.
Rafa Benitez's men completely collapsed against The Hornets as they surrendered a 2-1 lead in the final 12 minutes, conceding four times to lose 5-2 to Claudio Ranieri's men.
For a man whose Liverpool past meant he was never a popular appointment, it's the sort of result that piles the pressure on the Everton manager.
Now the Spaniard must get The Toffees back to winning ways when they head to the west Midlands amid a run of just one victory in five matches.
Opponents Wolves were second-best in their previous outing against Leeds but were one minute away from claiming victory before Rodrigo's penalty earned Marcelo Bielsa's side a precious point.
It leaves Bruno Lage's side 11th in the table with four wins, one draw and four defeats so far in what has been a steady, if unspectacular, start for Santo's successor.
With Crystal Palace, West Ham, Norwich and Burnley coming up, this should represent the start of a favourable run for Lage's side.
All eyes to Molineux on Monday night as both sides bid to secure morale-boosting wins to cap off Matchday 10.
