ARSENAL 2 HULL CITY 2

GOALS:- ARSENAL: SANCHEZ 13th; WELBECK 90th. HULL: DIAME 17th; HERNANDEZ 46th.

Danny Welbeck's goal in added time secured Arsenal another draw at the Emirates. Alexis Sanchez's low shot had given the Gunners an early lead, but a disputed Mohamed Diame strike, after the midfielder fouled Mathieu Flamini, and an Abel Hernandez-headed goal put Hull ahead. However, Welbeck guided in a Sanchez pass in the first minute of stoppage time to rescue a point, Arsenal's fifth draw of the season.

BURNLEY 1

WEST HAM UNITED 3

GOALS:- BURNLEY: BOYD 60th. WEST HAM: SAKHO 49th; VALENCIA 54th; COLE 70th.

West Ham climbed into fourth place in the Barclays Premier League after Diafra Sakho scored his sixth goal in as many starts for the Hammers. Sakho opened the scoring with a header just after half-time. Enner Valencia added a second soon after with another header, and though George Boyd pulled a goal back for Burnley, a third header, from sub Carlton Cole, sealed the points.

CRYSTAL PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

GOALS:- PALACE: CAMPBELL 90th. CHELSEA: OSCAR 6th; FABREGAS 51st.

Cesc Fabregas scored his first league goal for Chelsea as the Barclays Premier League leaders survived a late Crystal Palace fightback at Selhurst Park. Despite the absence of leading scorer Diego Costa, Chelsea went ahead with a 25-yard Oscar free kick. Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta and Palace's Damien Delaney were sent off before Fabregas finished a fine move. Fraizer Campbell replied for Palace with a late goal.

EVERTON 3

ASTON VILLA 0

GOALS:- EVERTON: JAGIELKA 18th; LUKAKU 48th; COLEMAN 76th.

Everton secured only their second win of the Barclays Premier League season in a game that marked the return of wonderkid Ross Barkley. The 20-year-old started his first game of the season after suffering a serious knee injury and was outstanding as Everton took charge. Phil Jagielka gave the Toffees an early lead. Barkley set up Romelu Lukaku for the second and Seamus Coleman completed the win.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1

LEICESTER CITY 0

GOAL:- NEWCASTLE: OBERTAN 71st.

Newcastle fans had to wait to witness their team's first win of the season. Kick-off was delayed an hour over fears for the safety of a big screen at St James' Park, but it was worth the wait for the Toon Army, with Gabriel Obertan netting the game's only goal in the 71st minute.

SOUTHAMPTON 8

SUNDERLAND 0

GOALS:- SOUTHAMPTON: VERGINI 12th OG; PELLE 18th, 69th; CORK 37th; BRIDCUTT 63rd OG; TADIC 78th; WANYAMA 79th; MANE 86th.

Southampton demolished Sunderland at St Mary's in a game which saw Santiago Vergini score one of the Premier League's most spectacular own goals. The Argentine volleyed in from 18 yards, before Graziano Pelle and Jack Cork each scored from close range. Pelle's well-taken second followed a Liam Bridcutt own goal, and Sunderland keeper Vito Mannone passed to Dusan Tadic to make it six. Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane sealed Sunderland's biggest loss in 32 years - and Saints biggest ever Barclays Premier League win.
