AFC BOURNEMOUTH 2 MANCHESTER UNITED 1

GOALS:- BOURNEMOUTH: STANISLAS 2nd; KING 54th. UNITED: FELLAINI 24th.

A week after toppling reigning Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea, newly promoted Bournemouth shocked Manchester United. After David de Gea was beaten from a corner by Junior Stanislas, United equalised via Marouane Fellaini. The visitors faded after the break and could not fight back after Joshua King fired in from Matt Ritchie's set piece.

CRYSTAL PALACE 1 SOUTHAMPTON 0

GOAL:- PALACE: CABAYE 38th.

Crystal Palace moved up to sixth in the Barclays Premier League thanks to a Yohan Cabaye winner. The hosts fully deserved their first Barclays Premier League win over Southampton, a victory that also extended Palace's unbeaten run to three league games. Yannick Bolasie's cross allowed the unmarked Cabaye to tap home from six yards late in the first half.

MANCHESTER CITY 2 SWANSEA CITY 1

GOALS:- CITY: BONY 26th; IHEANACHO 90th. SWANSEA: GOMIS 90th.

Manchester City went top of the Barclays Premier League on Saturday thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho's injury-time deflection. City, beaten at Stoke a week ago, struggled against managerless Swansea, who sacked Garry Monk on Wednesday. And after Wilfried Bony lost Ashley Williams to score against his former club, Bafetimbi Gomis' late equaliser looked like it would earn a point - before Iheanacho's lucky strike.

NORWICH CITY 1 EVERTON 1

GOALS:- NORWICH: HOOLAHAN 47th. EVERTON: LUKAKU 15th.

Romelu Lukaku scored for the sixth successive time in the Barclays Premier League, but Norwich produced a battling second-half display to hold Everton to their third straight Premier League draw. Lukaku scored with a header from Gerard Deulofeu's excellent cross. Wes Hoolahan levelled for Norwich from close range before Cameron Jerome missed a great chance for the hosts.

SUNDERLAND 0 WATFORD 1

GOAL:- WATFORD: IGHALO 4th.

Watford claimed their third successive win through Odion Ighalo's early goal to leave Sunderland in the relegation zone. Ighalo and Black Cats defender Sebastian Coates met Allan Nyom's low cross at the near post and diverted the ball past Costel Pantilimon. Sunderland took time to find a response but dominated the second half.

WEST HAM UNITED 0 STOKE CITY 0

These teams drew for the third Barclays Premier League game in a row at the Boleyn Ground. Marco van Ginkel, brought in for the injured Xherdan Shaqiri, had Stoke's best chance in the first half but he put wide from close range. West Ham enjoyed more action in front of goal but they were denied time after time by Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland.
