ARSENAL 3 BURNLEY 0

GOALS:-ARSENAL: SANCHEZ 70, 90; CHAMBERS 72.

Arsenal claimed a second successive league win for the first time this season. It took the Gunners 70 minutes to break down a stubborn Burnley, before Alexis Sanchez struck with a close-range header. Calum Chambers then added his first senior goal from a corner as Burnley's resistance crumbled. Sanchez fired in his second from Kieran Gibbs's cross to leave Burnley stuck at bottom of the Barclays Premier League.

CHELSEA 2 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 1

GOALS:-CHELSEA: OSCAR 32; HAZARD 75 PEN. QPR: AUSTIN: 62.

Chelsea moved nine points clear of title rivals Manchester City, ahead of their derby game against United, as a sublime finish by Oscar helped overcome a determined QPR at Stamford Bridge. The Brazil midfielder lashed home a first-time low, angled drive with the outside of his boot from 12 yards after being set up by Cesc Fabregas. Rangers' in-form Charlie Austin levelled when back-heeling Leroy Fer's shot into the net, but Eden Hazard's penalty, after the Belgian was fouled by Eduardo Vargas, won it for Chelsea.

EVERTON 0 SWANSEA CITY 0

GOALS:-NONE.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez had to settle for a point against former club Swansea, who held on for a draw, having gone down to 10 men late in the game. Wilfried Bony had a shot saved for the visitors, before they were denied a penalty when Jonjo Shelvey's strike appeared to hit Antolin Alcaraz's hand. Shelvey was later sent off for a second booking after 72 minutes.

HULL CITY 0 SOUTHAMPTON 1

GOAL:-SOUTHAMPTON: WANYAMA 3.

Victor Wanyama's superb chip was enough to extend Southampton's stunning start to the Premier League season and keep the pressure on Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea. The Kenyan midfielder capitalised on a poor clearance from third-choice Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic after only three minutes. The victory was the Saints' seventh in eight league games and kept Chelsea's lead at the top to four points.

LEICESTER CITY 0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1

GOAL:-WBA: CAMBIASSO 47 (Own goal)

Esteban Cambiasso's own goal gave West Brom victory as Leicester's unbeaten Premier League start at the King Power Stadium came to an end.

On 47 minutes, Wes Morgan headed Saido Berahino's cross straight into the chest of Cambiasso and into the net. The Foxes have scored just twice in their last five games and dropped top-scorer Leonardo Ulloa to the bench.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1 LIVERPOOL 0

GOAL:-NEWCASTLE: PEREZ 73.

Newcastle's revival under Alan Pardew continued as they picked up a fourth successive victory against a Liverpool side who continue to struggle for form. Substitute Ayoze Pérez, who scored in a 2-1 win at spurs last weekend, netted the second-half winner from close range after the visitors failed to clear Paul Dummett's cross.

STOKE CITY 2 WEST HAM UNITED 2

GOALS:-STOKE: MOSES 33; DIOUF 56. WEST HAM: VALENCIA 60; DOWNING 73.

West Ham showed they have some steel to go with their new-found attacking flair, after salvaging a point against Stoke thanks to a spirited late comeback. Stoke had dominated for the first hour and deservedly led through goals from Victor Moses and Mame Biram Diouf. At that stage, a Hammers fightback looked unlikely, but Enner Valencia's header gave them hope, and Stewart Downing's 73rd-minute strike completed their recovery.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2

ASTON VILLA 1 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2

GOALS:-VILLA: WEIMANN 16.

TOTTENHAM: CHADLI 84; KANE 90.

Ten-man Aston Villa suffered their sixth straight defeat as Spurs came from behind to take advantage of Christian Benteke's red card. Andreas Weimann had given Villa an early lead, but Benteke's 65th minute dismissal for fighting was followed by late goals from Nacer Chadli and Harry Kane, his first in the Barclays Premier League.

MANCHESTER CITY 1 MANCHESTER UNITED 0

GOAL:-CITY: AGUERO 63.

Manchester City won the derby at the Etihad Stadium, as Sergio Aguero's second-half strike gave the Barclays Premier League champions victory over Manchester United. Agüero's 10th Premier League goal of the season finally breached a depleted United defence after Chris Smalling had been sent off in the first half and Marcos Rojo taken off on a stretcher after the break with shoulder damage.
