Another superb victory for Crystal Palace under Alan Pardew, while Chelsea's decidedly iffy start to their title defence continues after last weekend's brief respite at West Brom. That was just Jose Mourinho's second defeat across two spells and 100 home Premier League games in charge of the Blues.

A dismal 90 minutes for Liverpool too, who lost Coutinho to a red card and were soundly beaten by a West Ham side who have been strangely inconsistent since Bilic succeeded Sam Allardyce and also ended the match with 10 men.

Sunderland will no doubt be glad to have taken a share of the spoils from Villa Park after throwing away a 1-0 goal lead and subsequently going 2-1 down, while Leicester's positive start to life with Claudio Ranieri continues with a point on the south coast.

A victorious return to the Potteries for Tony Pulis, although he may be slightly concerned that his West Brom team only managed to score once past an ill-disciplined Stoke outfit who were reduced to nine men before the break.

Liverpool 0-3 West Ham



Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace

Stoke 0-1 West Brom


What a miserable, miserable afternoon for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool as Sakho extends West Ham's lead even further. A first win at Anfield since 1963 is surely now secured for Bilic's side.

Aston Villa 2-2 Sunderland


A comfortable victory for league leaders City, who register their 10th victory on the bounce. Watford are still looking for a first win under Quique Sanchez Flores, having drawn their previous three top-flight games against Southampton, West Brom and Everton.



Manchester City 2-0 Watford


Five minutes of added time for Chelsea to find an equaliser. Liverpool, though, appear powerless to prevent a disappointing defeat.


Leicester look set to keep their unbeaten start intact as Vardy scores from the penalty spot after being hauled down by Steve Cook. 1-1 at Dean Court with a few minutes left to play.


Goal: Bournemouth 1-1 Leicester (Jamie Vardy)


It is also 10-men apiece at Anfield after Noble is sent off for a foul on substitute Danny Ings. Kevin Friend not endearing himself to either set of supporters there.


A crazy few minutes at Stamford Bridge as former Manchester United loanee Falcao produces an excellent diving header to convert home debutant Pedro's cross before Palace immediately restore their lead through an unlikely source.

Right-back Ward nets a header of his own after Sako makes good contact with Bolasie's ball in. Can the Eagles hold on?

Red card: Mark Noble (West Ham)


Goal: Chelsea 1-1 Crystal Palace (Radamel Falcao)


For all his relentless trickery, Bolasie does not score all that frequently and he could have put this game beyond Chelsea after replacing Wilfried Zaha.


Ruben Loftus-Cheek also on for Chelsea now, with Nemanja Matic withdrawn. Yannick Bolasie is causing real problems for Palace having missed last week's victory over Aston Villa following the death of his father.


Jose Mourinho has only lost once in 99 previous home games in charge of Chelsea but that record could be under threat here as Sako sees an initial shot blocked before firing into the back of the net.

The hosts have responded by bringing on Radmael Falcao for Willian. Brazilian Kenedy is also sent on for his debut.


Goal: Chelsea 0-1 Crystal Palace (Bakary Sako)


A flurry of activity as Fernandinho doubles Manchester City's lead against Watford after swapping passes with David Silva and firing an effort past Heurelho Gomes.

Things continue to go from bad to worse at Anfield, meanwhile, as Coutinho receives a second yellow card for a foul on Dimitri Payet. A desperately disappointing end to the afternoon for a player who has greatly impressed during the early stages of the season.
