SAT, SEPT 19

AFC BOURNEMOUTH 2

SUNDERLAND 0

GOALS:-BOURNEMOUTH:

WILSON 4; RITCHIE 9.

Bournemouth were able to celebrate a first-ever home win in the Barclays Premier League, thanks to two goals within the opening nine minutes. The Cherries side took the lead early on through Callum Wilson, who fired in a low finish from Dan Gosling's pass. Matt Ritchie extended the advantage soon after with a stunning volley into the top corner of the net to send Sunderland to the foot of the table.

ASTON VILLA 0

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1

GOALS:-WBA: BERAHINO 39.

Saido Berahino scored on his first start since threatening to go on strike to help West Bromwich Albion win their local derby against Aston Villa. Albion almost took the lead within 60 seconds when Salomon Rondon's header was parried away by Villa keeper Brad Guzan. But before the interval, Berahino stuck out a foot to steer James Morrison's shot home.

CHELSEA 2

ARSENAL 0

GOALS:- CHELSEA:

ZOUMA 53; HAZARD 90.

Chelsea won only their second Barclays Premier League of this season against nine-man Arsenal. Kurt Zouma headed the opening goal after 53 minutes before Eden Hazard's shot flew in off Calum Chambers late on. But Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was furious after Arsenal defender Gabriel was sent off seconds before half-time for kicking out at Diego Costa. And then Santi Cazorla was given a second yellow card for a foul on Cesc F‡bregas.

MANCHESTER CITY 1

WEST HAM UNITED 2

GOALS:-CITY: DE BRUYNE 45. WEST HAM: MOSES 6; SAKHO 31.

Manchester City's perfect start was punctured by West Ham, who added their scalp to that of Arsenal and Liverpool. Victor Moses drilled in his first West Ham goal with a low 20-yard shot which crept inside Joe Hart's left-hand post. The visitors doubled their lead when Diafra Sakho hooked in from six yards. City's record-signing Kevin De Bruyne fired in to halve the deficit, but West Ham held on to move into

second place.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1

WATFORD 2

GOALS:-NEWCASTLE: JANMAAT 62. WATFORD: IGHALO 10, 28.

Newcastle dropped into the relegation zone after Odion Ighalo's double led Watford to a second successive victory. Nigeria international Ighalo, who has now scored 20 goals in 24 league games in 2015, claimed the opener after 10 minutes. The striker then took Troy Deeney's pass to round Krul before the break. Daryl Janmaat gave Newcastle a lifeline.

STOKE CITY 2

LEICESTER CITY 2

GOALS:-STOKE: KRKIC 13; WALTERS 20 . LEICESTER: MAHREZ PEN 51; VARDY 69.

Leicester came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Stoke City and maintain their unbeaten start to the

season. Jamie Vardy equalised after Riyad Mahrez scored his fifth goal of the season from the penalty spot. Bojan Krkic, making his first start of the season, had given Stoke an early lead from Marko Arnautovic's pass. Jonathan Walters doubled the advantage but Stoke are still searching for their first win of the season.

SWANSEA CITY 0

EVERTON 0

GOALS:-NONE.

Swansea and Everton emerged with a point apiece from a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium. Everton had the better of a dull first half, although Swansea's Bafitimbi Gomis came closest to scoring when skewing wide of Tim Howard's goal. Both teams improved after the break, but Everton striker Romelu Lukaku twice shot over the bar when through on goal.

SUN, SEPT 20

LIVERPOOL 1

NORWICH CITY 1

GOALS:-LIVERPOOL: INGS 48. NORWICH: MARTIN 61.

Daniel Sturridge made his first Liverpool appearance in more than five months as Brendan Rodgers's side were held to a draw at home to Norwich. Danny Ings came on to score his first Liverpool goal but Russell Martin profited from Simon Mignolet's error on a corner to level, just before Sturridge came off.

SOUTHAMPTON 2

MANCHESTER UNITED 3

GOALS:-SOUTHAMPTON: PELLE 13, 86. UNITED: MARTIAL 34, 50; MATA 68.

Anthony Martial's great start at Manchester United continued as the £36-million striker scored twice at Southampton. United went behind when Graziano Pelle converted a loose ball. But Martial equalised and then took advantage of a terrible Maya Yoshida backpass to slot in a second. Juan Mata added a third and while Pelle headed a late second, United

held on.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1

CRYSTAL PALACE 0

GOAL:-TOTTENHAM: SON 68.

Son Heung-min scored his third goal in two games to give Tottenham their first home Barclays Premier League win of the season against Crystal Palace. The South Korea international, signed this summer from Bayer Leverkusen, followed up his two goals in Spurs' Europa League tie in midweek with the winning goal on the break. His low shot under Alex McCarthy came after Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris had made a superb save from Bakary Sako.
