Friday night football saw Liverpool ending the unbeaten start at Chelsea for Antonio Conte as the Reds went away from Stamford Bridge with a two-one win to keep the positive start Jurgen Klopp’s side have made going.

Man City are the early season pacesetters with the goals flowing again under Pep Guardiola in a four-nil win over Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium with Arsenal also winning again with a four-one win at 10-man Hull seeing the Gunners (who could even afford a missed penalty) continue the recovery from the opening matches of the season that didn’t yield the points return many would have expected.

Talking of ‘recovering’ defending Champions Leicester continue to do this with a three-nil win over Burnley seeing a reaction to the Liverpool thrashing as the Foxes followed up the Champions League debut (three-nil) win over Club Brugge with league points. Not recovering though are West Ham who conceded another four-goals in a four-two defeat at West Brom.

It’s been a week to enjoy for Watford but one to forget for Manchester United as the Hornets’ three-one win at Vicarage Road made it back-to-back wins or Walter Mazzarri whereas Man United lost to Man City, Feyenoord and Watford in the space of eight-days.

Stoke’s difficult start to the season continued with them remaining bottom after a four-one defeat at Crystal Palace, with that win at Selhurst Park making it back-to-back wins for them with Southampton’s one-nil win over Swansea at the St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday also a first league win for Claude Puel since his appointment.
