Jurgen Klopp secured his first win as Liverpool manager with a 3-1 triumph over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to heap yet more pressure on Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

Ramires headed the Blues in front after just four minutes, but Philippe Coutinho curled in a superb equaliser in stoppage time at the end of the first half. The Brazilian struck again with 15 minutes remaining to put the visitors ahead, before Christian Benteke sealed the points with a cool finish.

Manchester City stayed top of the table with a 2-1 win against Norwich at the Etihad. Nicolas Otamendi headed them ahead midway through the second half, before a Joe Hart howler presented Cameron Jerome with an equaliser. However, City were awarded a penalty in the closing stages as John Ruddy left his goal exposed, and Canaries defender Russell Martin handled a goal-bound shot to earn a red card, allowing Yaya Toure to step up and convert from the spot. There was still time for Aleksandar Kolarov to miss a penalty as well.

Everton demolished Sunderland 6-2 at Goodison Park to bring them back down to earth after their Tyne-Wear derby win. The Toffees went two up in the first half through Gerard Deulofeu and Arouna Kone, before Jermain Defoe and Steven Fletcher struck to level things up. Everton went back ahead through a Sebastian Coates own goal, and ran riot from there with Kone netting two more to complete a hat-trick, sandwiched by a Romelu Lukaku goal.

Arsenal stayed on City’s heels with a comfortable 3-0 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. Olivier Giroud headed the Gunners ahead from a corner just four minutes into the second half. Laurent Koscielny then doubled the lead after Lukasz Fabianski fumbled a high ball, before Joel Campbell scored his first league goal for the club to top off the win.

On Monday night, Spurs took their unbeaten run to 10 games as they beat Aston Villa 3-1 at White Hart Lane. Goals from Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli gave the home side a comfortable lead at half-time. Substitute Jordan Ayew pulled one back for the visitors, but Harry Kane netted in stoppage time to seal the win.

Leicester once again came from behind to win a game this season with a 3-2 win at the Hawthorns against West Brom. Salomon Rondon headed Albion in front before a Riyad Mahrez brace in the second half put the Foxes ahead. Jamie Vardy then coolly slotted a goal for an eighth consecutive game, before a late Rickie Lambert penalty made for a nervy ending.

Southampton comfortably beat Bournemouth 2-0 at St. Mary’s to consign the Cherries to a third straight loss. Saints had the game wrapped up by half-time thanks to goals from Steven Davis and Graziano Pelle.

Watford made it two consecutive wins with a 2-0 win over West Ham at Vicarage Road. Odion Ighalo netted both goals for the Hornets, the first a tap-in before a wonderful finish into the top corner at the start of the second period.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United drew 0-0 at Selhurst Park. The closest either side came to a goal was in the first-half when Yannick Bolasie struck the crossbar with a rasping shot.

Newcastle and Stoke also played out a goalless draw at St. James’ Park. The home side came closest to breaking the deadlock when Aleksandar Mitrovic headed against the post.
