CHELSEA 1 LIVERPOOL 3

GOALS:- CHELSEA: RAMIRES 4th. LIVERPOOL: COUTINHO 45th, 74th; BENTEKE 83rd.

Chelsea boss JosÈ Mourinho suffered again as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claimed his first win. The Blues took an early lead through Ramires, but Liverpool levelled in first-half added time, with Philippe Coutinho scoring the first of two goals. He netted again with a shot that deflected off Chelsea skipper John Terry, before Reds sub Christian Benteke added a third for the visitors.

CRYSTAL PALACE 0

MANCHESTER UNITED 0

Manchester United extended their goal drought to 325 minutes - more than five hours - in all competitions and squandered the opportunity to keep up with the Barclays Premier League pacesetters, with Crystal Palace putting up the shutters at Selhurst Park. It is the first time since 2005 that United have failed to score in three successive games.

MANCHESTER CITY 2

NORWICH CITY 1

GOALS:- MANCHESTER CITY: OTAMENDI 67th; TOURÈ PEN 89th. NORWICH: JEROME 83rd.

Yaya TourÈ's late penalty rescued Manchester City and kept them at the top of the Barclays Premier League after Norwich had staged a brave comeback. Nicolas Otamendi's header put the hosts in front, before Joe Hart inexplicably dropped the ball at the feet of Cameron Jerome for a Norwich equaliser. But TourÈ scored from the spot after Russell Martin's red card for handball, before Aleksandar Kolarov missed a second penalty in time added.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 0 STOKE CITY 0

Not for the first time this season goalkeeper Jack Butland earned Stoke a point with a string of key saves. Newcastle went close when Aleksandar Mitrovic hit the post before Butland scrambled the ball clear. Moussa Sissoko twice went close with well-struck shots, only for Butland to save impressively each time. However, Stoke's keeper saved his best until late on when he tipped a Jamaal Lascelles header over the crossbar.

SWANSEA CITY 0 ARSENAL 3

GOALS:- ARSENAL: GIROUD 49th; KOSCIELNY 68th; CAMPBELL 73rd.

Arsenal bounced back from the humiliation of their 3-0 Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday to remain level on points with Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City. Olivier Giroud headed Arsenal in front soon after the restart, before Laurent Koscielny seized on an error by former Gunners goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to double their lead. Joel Campbell struck on his first Premier League start to seal the victory.

WATFORD 2 WEST HAM UNITED 0

GOALS:- WATFORD: IGHALO 39th, 48th.

Ten-man West Ham suffered their first away defeat of the season, after Odion Ighalo continued his goalscoring form. Ighalo turned home the opener, and then the Nigerian doubled Watford's lead just after the break, firing home from Ikechi Anya's cut-back for his seventh goal of the season. Hammers' defender James Collins was red-carded for a foul on Ighalo.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 2 LEICESTER CITY 3

GOALS:- WBA: RONDON 30th; LAMBERT PEN 84th. LEICESTER: MAHREZ 57th, 64th; VARDY 77th.

Jamie Vardy scored for the eighth game in a row to help Leicester come back from a goal down to beat West Brom. The England striker scored after two goals from Riyad Mahrez early in the second half had put the Foxes ahead. Salomon Rondon gave Albion the lead, and Rickie Lambert's late penalty reduced the arrears, but Leicester hung on for the win and remain unbeaten away from home so far this season.
