MANCHESTER CITY 8-0 WATFORD
Bernardo Silva scored a hat-trick as rampant Manchester City swept to their biggest ever Premier League win with a sensational 8-0 mauling of Watford on Saturday.
Incredibly, it could have been far worse for hapless Watford as City – and Sergio Aguero in particular – passed up several chances to beat Manchester United’s Premier League record score of 9-0.
Aguero at least had the consolation of claiming a Premier League record — his early penalty means he has become the first player to score in the first six games of a season since the competition was launched in 1992.
David Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne all got on the scoresheet as City closed the gap on Liverpool to two points ahead of the leaders’ trip to Chelsea on Monday morning (AEST).
Given the recent history of this fixture, it was no real surprise that City won – or by such a big score.
LEICESTER 2-1 TOTTENHAM
Leicester proved their credentials to upset the top-six applecart in the Premier League by coming from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 at the King Power on Saturday.
Harry’s Kane’s improvised opener put Spurs on course for a first away win in the Premier League since January.
However, the game swung Leicester’s way after a second Tottenham goal midway through the second half was ruled out by the finest of margins for offside by VAR.
The hosts built on that lift immediately as Ricardo Pereira equalised before James Maddison struck the winner from long range five minutes from time.
Brendan Rodgers’s men have now held their own against Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in the first six games of the season to move into the top three.
EVERTON 0-2 SHEFFIELD UNITED
Sheffield United managed just one shot on target but came away with a 2-0 victory at Everton in the Premier League.
Substitute Lys Mousset’s 79th-minute goal came from the Blades’ only shot on goal at Goodison Park, with Yerry Mina’s own-goal putting the visitors ahead just before halftime.
Sheffield United, back in the top flight for the first time since relegation in 2007, are unbeaten away from home since mid-January and this dogged performance demonstrated why that is the case.
Organised, disciplined and committed to a game plan, United were almost everything the hosts weren’t.
BURNLEY 2-0 NORWICH
Norwich followed up their shock win against Manchester City in the previous Premier League round with a 2-0 defeat at Burnley.
The Canaries beat City 3-2 a week ago but conceded two early goals at Turf Moor as Chris Wood scored a quickfire brace in the 10th and 14th minutes.
Wood headed in the opener and then quickly doubled the lead with a close-range shot after a cross from Dwight McNeil.
NEWCASTLE 0-0 BRIGHTON
Andy Carroll came on for his first appearance for Newcastle in nearly nine years but couldn’t inspire the team to victory in a 0-0 home draw against Brighton.
The 30-year-old striker, who rejoined Newcastle in August after spells with Liverpool and West Ham, entered to a huge ovation in the 82nd minute and made his presence felt in a bustling cameo performance at St. James’ Park.
He had not played since February because of an ankle injury that required an operation.
Newcastle ended up relying on a stunning goal-line clearance from Fabian Schar to claim a point, with the Switzerland international acrobatically volleying away the ball after Brighton substitute Aaron Connolly flicked it over goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.
