What an action packed Saturday we had! It was fitting enough to the status of Premier League that there were no goal-less matches and no draws. It was goals all over as teams continued their quest for supremacy. We look back at what transpired

Gunners gun down Hull

Arsenal showed glimpses of their quality as they thrashed Hull City 4-1. Alexis Sanchez was the star of the show with a brace while Walcott and Xhaka scored too. Hull, which finished with 10 men, pulled a goal back through Snodgross but it was only a consolation for the hosts. Arsenal climb up to third in the table and are five points away from table toppers Manchester City.

 

City look like a team in hurry!

Early days still but on the evidence of what we saw so far, Pep’s City look far more accomplished than any of their rivals this season. They continued their unbeaten start with a 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth where four different players got onto the scoring sheet. The only sore point for City is the sending off of Nolito for an apparent headbutt.

West Brom versus West Ham

Making a mockery of all the troubles and uncertainty around the club, West Brom pummeled West Ham United to a 4-2 victory at home. Nacer Chadli was the star of the show for the Baggies scoring a brace while the Hammers suffered a fourth league defeat condemning them to the precipice of bottom three.

Leicester get a vital win!

The defending Champions had a difficult start to this campaign and all eyes were on the Foxes to see how they cope with scheduling. But the midweek trip to Club Brugge seems to have only aided their morale as the Foxes trumped Burnley 3-0 at home. Their record signing Islam Slimani celebrated his League debut with a brace to grab full points for the hosts.

Everton rise up to second!

Everton continued their great start to the season as they picked full points against Middlesbrough with a 3-1 win at Goodison Park. Boro went ahead with an own goal from Marin Stekelenburg but it was all Everton from there! Goals from Gareth Barry, Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku were enough to seal full points for the Toffees.
