The game between Bournemouth and Watford was of remarkably low quality. However, Richarlison was arguably the man of the match. He eventually profited from a good work between Nathaniel Chalobah and Andre Gray, prodding home in the game’s opener 17 minutes before regulation time. Etienne Capoue sealed the maximum points for Watford 15 minutes later.
Goals: Richarlison 73′, Capoue 86′
BURNLEY 0-1 WEST BROM
Hal Robson-Kanu, was the hero of the day, but not without some drama reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Super Cup cameo. In fact Robson-Kanu became only the 4th player in Premier League history to score and be sent off after coming on as a substitute. He reacted quickest to Matt Phillips’ flick-on and finished at the near post with 20 minutes left – time enough for him to also be sent off for elbowing Matt Lowton.
Goals: Hal Robson-Kanu 71′
LEICESTER CITY 2-0 BRIGHTON
Quick-fire Shinji Okazaki put Leicester ahead early for the second consecutive time — this time ensuring that he is the first player this season to score within the first minute. Mat Ryan’s fumble from Riyad Mahrez’s shot allowed Okazaki to tap home after 52 seconds. And then Harry Maguire headed home Mahrez’s corner nine minutes after half-time to hand the Foxes their first win of the season.
Goals: Okazaki 1′, Maguire 54′
LIVERPOOL 1-0 CRYSTAL PALACE
Jurgen Klopp’s team seemed affected by Tuesday’s trip to Hoffenheim, and it took them lot’s of effort to pull a win here. Sadio Mane handed Liverpool the maximum points after proving effective again against Palace. Mane has had a hand in five goals in six Premier League games vs Crystal Palace.
Goals: Mane 73′
SOUTHAMPTON 3-2 WESTHAM
Southampton score at St Mary’s. Manolo Gabbiadini took just 11 minutes to end a six-game scoreless run at home; a sign of their quick improvement under Mauricio Pellegrino, but also an indictment of how flimsy West Ham (who lost Winston Reid to injury in the warm-up) currently are. Dusan Tadic doubled the lead from the penalty spot before half-time, with Javier Hernandez quickly pulling a goal back, but only after Marko Arnautovic had seen a straight red card for an elbow.
Nevertheless, the 10 men dragged themselves back into the game, with Hernandez reacting quite brilliantly to a Fraser Forster parry to volley in an equaliser – only for Lee Mason to award Southampton a contentious stoppage-time penalty which Charlie Austin converted. Another tough afternoon for West Ham.
Goals: Manolo Gabbiadini 11′, Tadic (pen) 38′, Austin 90′ – Hernandez 45′, 74′
STOKE CITY 1-0 ARSENAL
Stoke debutant Jese scored the only goal to deny Arsenal of a 100 percent record after two matches. The former Real Madrid man, who joined on loan from PSG this week, slotted home with a fine finish moments after the break. It was a counter from a loose Granit Xhaka pass. A frustrated Arsene Wenger watched his side dominate possession for a large spell, and then saw a late potential Alexandre Lacazette equaliser wrongly ruled out for offside.
Goal: Jese 47′
