Arsenal’s Premier League season continued with a win against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Preparations for the Champions League opener with Paris Saint Germain saw Arsenal score an injury-time winner in a two-one win over Southampton as we came from a goal-down.

Southampton went ahead when Cech was unfortunate when he had turned Tadic’s freekick onto the crossbar with the ball then bouncing in off ‘keeper for an own goal inside 20-minutes.

Arsenal were level ahead of the half hour mark when a Koscielny overhead kick made it one-one at the break.

The points looked to be shared until Fonte was penalised for a foul on Giroud with Cazorla scoring from the penalty spot to win it deep into injury-time.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other matches played, with some still to take place.

Billed as ‘Jose Mourinho verses Pep Guardiola’, when in reality it WAS Manchester United v Manchester City of course, the first Manchester derby of the season was won by Man City who came away from Old Trafford with a two-one win.

Arsenal left it late with an injury-time winner seeing them through to a two-one win at the Emirates Stadium in a win against Southampton.

First wins of the season were secured by Bournemouth who won one-nil at West Brom at Dean Court with Watford winning not only for the first time this season but under Walter Mazzarri winning four-two at West Ham.

Also collecting a first three-points were Crystal Palace who won two-one at Middlesbrough with the first home match by Liverpool won with Champions Leicester going away from Anfield after a four-one defeat with Tottenham also in the goals beating Stoke four-nil with the Potters remaining at the foot of the table.
