Leicester’s title defence has basically gone from bad to worse with another heavy defeat suffered to get the fixtures underway with Chelsea’s three-nil win at Stamford Bridge leaving them just outside of the Champions League places.

Two missed penalties (in fairness to an inspired Maarten Stekelenburg, who saved them both) proved costly for Manchester City with them dropping two points at the Etihad Stadium against Everton, who will go away happy with a one-one draw.

Only goal-difference keeps Arsenal off the top now with Bob Bradley’s first match in charge of Swansea ending with the Swans (who dropped to second-bottom) losing by the odd goal in five as the Gunners ran out three-two winners.

In the first ever Premier League meeting between Bournemouth and Hull not only did the Cherries score five-goals for the first time in the topflight they managed six Mike Phelan suffered a six-one thrashing in his first match as full time boss, making it 17-goals conceded in the last four-matches by City!

A potentially relegation six-pointer saw Sunderland’s woe’s go on, they continue to await that first win of the season with Stoke getting this after a two-nil win at the Bet365 Stadium to get the Potters up and running – Stoke remain in the bottom three with the Black Cats rock bottom and in danger of being cut adrift.

Had it not been for a last minute equaliser from Dele Alli West Brom would have claimed a big three-points against Tottenham but the England internationals goal got Spurs a point in a one-one draw at the Hawthorns to deny Albion and keep the visitors as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

West Ham gained a much needed win to ease the pressure on Slaven Bilic, a first half goal gave them a one-nil win over Crystal Palace with a missed penalty and post denying Christian Benteke an equaliser at Selhurst Park.

Sunday’s matches got underway with Watford getting all three-points at Middlesbrough with a second half stunner securing the Hornets a one-nil win at the Riverside with the second part of the afternoon’s matches seeing Southampton see off Burnley three-one at the St Mary’s Stadium to continued the impressive run they’ve been on in recent weeks.
