Everton 3-1 Chelsea
Steven Naismith netted the perfect hat trick after replacing the injured Muhamed Besic early on in the game.

Chelsea responded when Nemanja Matic rifled home from 30 yards out with a terrific strike it would all count for nothing though as Naismith completed his hat trick on the 82nd minute to cap off a brilliant day for Everton and yet another woeful performance from Chelsea.
Arsenal 2-0 Stoke
The Gunners recorded their first home win of the season as they swept aside Stoke City thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud. Walcott opened the scoring in the first half when he chased down a superb long ball from Mesut Ozil before Walcott fired the ball under Stoke stopper Jack Butland. Olivier Giroud made sure that all 3 points went to Arsenal when he sealed victory with a late header.
Crystal Palace 0-1 Man City
League leaders Manchester City remained unbeaten as they unconvincingly scraped past Crystal Palace. It was a fairly disappointing day for Manchester City despite them winning, they saw their star striker Sergio Aguero limp off the pitch with an injured knee which now makes him very unlikely to play a part in City’s first Champions League game against Juventus but there were plenty of positives for Man City to take from this game with club record signing Kevin De Bruyne having a man of the match performance despite only playing the second half! Nigerian teenager Kelechi Iheanacho stabbed home his shot in the last minute to continue Man City’s 100 percent start to the season.
Norwich 3-1 Bournemouth
Wes Hoolahan was the difference as Norwich swept aside AFC Bournemouth. Cameron Jerome opened the scoring when Norwich playmaker Wes Hoolahan nutmegged Steve Cook and then squared the ball for Jerome to poke in. Norwich really upped their game in the second half as Wes Hoolahan was at it again but this time scoring as he got the goal he deserved when he charged forward and found the bottom corner from 20 yards out, Matt Jarvis added the third on his debut for the club before Steve Cook added a late Consolation for the away side.
Watford 1-0 Swansea
Watford recorded their first win of the season as Odion Ighalo’s second half goal meant they took all 3 points. 10 man Watford earned their first win of the season despite Valon Behrami being sent off after stamping on Andre Ayew. Odion Ighalo sealed the game with a smart finish after a great knockdown from Troy Deeney.
West Brom 0-0 Southampton
Saido Berahino returned to action for West Brom despite the Tottenham target saying he would never play for the club again! West Brom had a very strong penalty appeal turned down when winger Callum Mcmanaman evaded the lunge of Matt Targett. Jay Rodriguez failed to score the winning goal after a great cross from Dusan Tadic when he fired his header wide.
Man United 3-1 Liverpool
Manchester United’s new £36 million signing Anthony Marrtial scored his first goal for the club after coming off the bench to make his debut. United scored first when Daley Blind was found on the edge of the area to convert home beautifully. United scored again on the 70th minute mark when Ander Herrera placed his penalty in to the top left hand corner before Christian Benteke produced one of the best bicycle kicks the Premier League has ever seen but it all counted for nothing when Anthony Martial responded straight away with a fantastic dribble before slotting into the bottom right hand corner to seal the game up.
Leicester City 3-2 Aston Villa
Leicester City produced a terrific second half display to turn the game on its head and remain unbeaten. Villa dominated the first half and it showed when the away side took the lead 20 minutes in through a very clever finish from Jack Grealish and Carles Gil added a second for them in the second half, From then on Leicester totally dominated a goal from Ritchie De Laet lifted the whole home crowd and from then on it was constant pressure from the home side which resulted in an equaliser through England international Jamie Vardy on the 82nd minute which left plenty of time for Leicester to get all 3 points which they eventually did through a brave header from Nathan Dyer in the 89th minute.
Sunderland 0-1 Tottenham
Ryan Mason’s late strike earned Spurs their first 3 points of the season. Having failed to even register a shot on target in the first half Spurs went onto win the game with a dinked Ryan Mason effort which injured him in the process. Ex Tottenham man Jermaine Defoe could’ve and should’ve put Sunderland ahead but scuffed his shot and hit the post.
West Ham 2-0 Newcastle
West Ham moved up to 5th in the table last night as they swept Newcastle away with absolute ease. Dimitri Payet ran the show for West Ham as he scored 2 goals for the Hammers the first being an absolute beauty within the ten minute mark after which West Ham looked very comfortable and were knocking the ball about and playing some really attractive football. West Ham added their second when they hit Newcastle on the counter attack following a free kick from the away side when Victor Moses knocked the ball down with his head and used his pace to break through the Newcastle defence before the Nigerian hit the bar allowing Dimitri Payet to follow up and score his second of the game to kill the game off.
