Diego Lugano was involved in both goals as he was at fault for Everton's opener but redeemed himself by scoring the equalizer.

Pepe Mel's debut was a mixed bag but it was an improvement on recent West Brom performances so there is reason for some hope. Diego Lugano scored an equalizer in the 75th minute and his teammates assaulted the Everton goal for the final 15 minutes in search of a winner. The winner was not to be but getting a point against a more talented and successful Everton team has to be considered progress.

It was confirmed by Sean Dyche following Burnley's defeat at the hands of Manchester City that Sam Vokes was absent from the squad due to an abdominal strain.

Vokes was on hand at the Etihad and it appears the injury is not serious, as it was not discussed prior to the game and Dyche didn't imply the striker would be missing further time. That may put him in contention to start next weekend's match against Newcastle, as the extent of Chris Wood's hamstring injury is yet unknown. Ashley Barnes provides a final option if needed, but their attack would be in much better shape if one Wood or Vokes is fit.

Sofiane Boufal dribbled three quarters of the field on his own and slotted home for the only goal as Southampton beat West Brom 1-0.

This match was an unlikely spot to yield a candidate for goal of the year but that's exactly what happened. The rest of the match was frenetic but ultimately lacking in quality end product. That was until Sofiane Boufal picked up an errant ball in his own half and dribbled through most of the West Brom defense leaving defenders on the ground in his wake. He slotted home from just outside the box for a must-see Winer for the struggling Saints.

Burnley's usually tenacious defense was up against a tough assignment and the Clarets would come away empty at the hands of Manchester City, 3-0.

Considering the opponent had been averaging just a shade under five goals a game over their last five, Burnley were not embarrassed in their efforts today against the Citizens. In fact, one could argue the match should have been level heading into the final 20 minutes. The Clarets gave up the opening goal by way of penalty and one could argue that City's Bernardo Silva took a dive. To make matters worse, Chris Wood had to leave the game in the opening half with what looked to be a hamstring strain. Still, Burnley put in their usual blue-collar shift and were still in the game heading into the final stages. Unfortunately, City delivered a one-two punch that put any hopes of a result out of reach. The Clarets will aim to pick up points next weekend when they host Newcastle.

Leicester City broke its six-match Premier League winless streak with a 2-1 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

If manager Craig Shakespeare's firing was meant to serve as a wake-up call, it certainly showed with Leicester City looking inspired in its first match without the manager. The scoring began in the 25th minute after Riyad Mahrez's sharp cross into the box was directed into the back of the net by Federico Fernandez for an own goal. Soon after the start of the second half, it was Mahrez again who was able to set up the goal after finding Shinji Okazaki to double the club's lead, which held despite a goal from Alfie Mawson 10 minutes later.

Bournemouth overcame their previous profligacy in front of goal this season on their way to earning a 2-1 win over Stoke City at the Bet 365 Stadium.

The Potters had just one win in seven heading into this tie and that record has only worsened in defeat. Bournemouth grabbed a 2 goal lead early on, first through Surman and then Junior Stanislas. The second goalscorer provided the first to his midfield teammate, who stuck in a tidy finish into the bottom corner of Jack Butland's net. Stanislas himself scored from the penalty spot after Benik Afobe was fouled by Ryan Shawcross. Afobe had started up front alongside Lys Mousset with both Defoe (hamstring) and Josh King (illness) unavailable. Stoke plaed their way back into the game, dominating the second-half but managing to muster up just one goal through Diouf who converted a knock-down by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. The Cherries remain in the relegation zone but their first away win of the season will come as a relief to Eddie Howe.

Huddersfield Town snapped a six-match winless run with a shock by defeating Manchester United 2-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Manager David Wagner stated before the match that he would not change the identity of his side and the decision paid massive dividends. Manchester United had only conceded twice in eight league matches this season, but the Terriers struck twice inside five minutes during the first-half. Aaron Mooy provided the first when he fired home after Tom Ince's shot was blocked by De Gea. Laurent Depoitre then rounded the goalkeeper minutes later and slotted home to double the lead on 33 minutes. United pulled one back through Marcus Rashford in the 78th, but the Town defense held firm and took all three points despite a nervy finish. The victory was their first against Manchester United since 1952 and undoubtedly a massive confidence boost for the Yorkshire club.

Manchester United's unbeaten start to the season came to an end with an unexpected 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho's side travelled to the John Smith's Stadium looking to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table. However, sloppy mistakes in the first-half saw them leave five points back of their rivals. Juan Mata committed the first error when he gave the ball away in midfield to Aaron Mooy, who fired home from close-range to give the Terriers the lead in the 28th. The next mistake was made by Victor Lindelof, on for the injured Phil Jones, which allowed Laurent Depoitre to cruise in and double the home side's lead five minutes later. Though Rashford pulled one back when he headed home from Romelu Lukaku's cross in the 78th, United were unable to break the disciplined Town defense for an equalizer.

Manchester City gained three points on rivals Manchester United as Leroy Sane led the charge to a 3-0 win over Burnley.

The City train keeps chugging along, with the attack finding it difficult at times to break down a pesky Burnley defense, but two goals inside of two minutes in the second half put the game away. In the first half, they took the lead when Bernardo Silva drew a penalty after tripping over Nick Pope. Sergio Aguero stepped up and converted for his seventh league goal of the season. Burnley never looked ready to fold, but in the 73rd minute, City doubled their lead when a Sane corner was headed home by Nicholas Otamendi. Less than two minutes later, Kevin de Bruyne delivered a peach of a through ball to Sane who had plenty of space to slot home with ease. The defense was not tested too much, but were in control, keeping their sixth clean sheet to date.

Newcastle left it until the end to secure a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace thanks to a late goal from Mikel Merino.

The Spaniard only recently turned his loan from Borussia Dortmund into a permanent move, and rewarded his side with the match-winner in the 86th minute. Merino came off the bench early in the first half and, 30 minutes later, headed home the only goal of the match following a scramble off a corner kick, when Matt Ritchie's cross was headed by James McArthur off the head of Merino and into the back of the net to end Newcastle's three-match winless streak.

Crystal Palace suffered a heartbreaking loss at the hands of Newcastle in the 86th minute of a 1-0 defeat.

The Eagles weren't able to build on their inspiring win last weekend against defending champion Chelsea, which accounts for their only goals and points of the season. It looked as though Palace were going to steal a point away from a trip up to the Northeast despite not recording a single shot on target. But second-half substitute Mikel Merino gave Newcastle the winning edge in the 86th minute after James McArthur's clearance deflected off Merino and past goalkeeper Julian Speroni, starting for the second straight week.

Despite leading with 71 minutes gone, Watford couldn't withstand a late comeback by Chelsea and suffered a 4-2 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Marco Silva's side fell behind in the 20th minute when Pedro scored a sublime strike from outside the area, but the visitors responded on the stroke of half-time when Doucore equalized with his fourth goal of the season. The goal shifted the momentum of the match and Watford emerged from the break firing on cylinders. Roberto Pereyra capitalized on some poor defending to give them a 2-1 lead in the 49th minute, yet, a pair of squandered chances by Richarlison would eventually haunt the Hornets. Chelsea responded through substitute Michy Batshuayi in the 71st and regained the lead on the 87th, while the Belgian completed his brace in stoppage time to hand Watford their first away defeat of the season.
