The FA have confirmed a successful appeal was made by Tottenham Hotspur to lift the suspension given to Danny Rose when he was sent off against Manchester City, and will be in contention for Spurs when they visit Hull City tomorrow.

If only the correct decision was made on the challenge itself, where Rose did tackle from behind, but he clearly got to the ball before making contact. The result led to a penalty converted by Yaya Toure and a man advantage for Manchester City which opened the floodgates. Rose should slot straight back in to the left back spot tomorrow as Spurs look to bounce back from the midweek drubbing.

Fernando Llorente scored a goal (two shots on target) in Swansea City's loss to Manchester City on Saturday, 3-1.

Llorente leveled the match, with a crack of a finish, when he smashed a half-volley home in the 11th minute - his first goal of the season. However, a brace from Sergio Aguero and a late goal from Raheem Sterling saw Manchester City prove too much for the Swans to overcome. Swansea will look to bounce back next week - in another tough matchup - against Liverpool.

Manchester United squashed all the negativity surrounding their recent three game losing streak by exploding for four goals in the first half and comfortably disposing of Leicester City, 4-1.

There was one significant change for the Red Devils today and it has to be said it was the key to their success. Wayne Rooney was dropped for this one and Juan Mata was given a rare chance in the #10 role and he absolutely thrived in it, as United had a free-flowing attack we haven't seen for some time. They torched the Foxes with three goals from set pieces, the first of which came when Chris Smalling headed home a Daley Blind corner. Jesse Lingard then found Mata who struck with his left foot to make it 2-0. The rout was on from there. Another Blind corner was played short to Mata and he picked out Marcus Rashford who scored from point blank range. Then a final goal came whe Paul Pogba opened his account, heading home yet another Blind corner. You have to think Jose Mourinho will keep this new-look attack intact for United's next match against a poor Stoke City defense.

Sergio Aguero returned in fine form after a three-match ban, as he scored twice in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Swansea City.

Aguero once again proved why he is one of the best strikers in the Premier League. The Argentine opened the scoring against Swansea with a superb strike in the 9th minute and added a second with a composed spot kick in the 65th. The victory was then sealed in the 77th minute when Raheem Sterling scored after a well worked counter-attack. Aguero has now scored five in four matches, while Manchester City remain atop the table and unbeaten this season.

Salomon Rondon scored from a corner in stoppage time to cancel out Joe Allen's opener and rescue a point for traveling Albion.

It was always going to be something of a grinding affair between a side managed by Tony Pulis and one managed by Mark Hughes. It looked like the Potters were going to pick up their first win of the season until Salomon Rondon came through in stoppage time to win a good away point for Albion.

Joe Allen looked to have won the Potters their first match of the season before a late Albion goal forced a draw.

At home against West Brom is the sort of match that Stoke City need three points from. They were almost there but couldn't quite get it over the line. The single point has them firmly in the relegation zone after six matches.

Crystal Palace won its third straight Premier League match in come-from-behind fashion with a 3-2 result at Sunderland.

Christian Benteke secured his moment of fame in Palace fans' memory with a last-minute header to seal a comeback win from 2-0 down. After Jermain Defoe's second goal in the 60th, Joe Ledley answered back almost immediately to cut the lead to one. Ten minutes later, it was James McArthur's turn to add his name to the scoresheet to draw even with the Black Cats. Then, the Belgian forward headed in a cross from Lee Chung-yong for the 3-2 wins, with all three goals coming in the last half-hour.

A Ben Gibson goal got Middlesbrough back into the match against Tottenham but they would come up short in the end, losing to Spurs 1-2.

It was a one-sided affair for the majority of the match in favor of Spurs, with a chance by Alvaro Negredo in the 5th minute the only decent chance Boro could create. In the meantime, they would concede twice in the opening half hour and it looked as though Tottenham would stay in control. However, the momentum turned in the 65th minute when Stewart Downing crossed a free kick into the box and Gibson muscled his way to meet the ball with his head and beat Hugo Lloris. The goal breathed life into Riverside Stadium and Boro were the better side for the final 25 minutes. However, they fell short of finding an equalizer, with a chance for Jordan Rhodes looking the most promising. He could only shoot into the arms of Lloris though as Boro lose for the third time straight, picking up only one point in their last four.

Claudio Ranieri feels goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel could return in the Champions League next week despite media reports suggesting the Denmark international was set for an extended period on the sidelines.

Schmeichel was hoping to be back in the starting XI at Old Trafford following his recovery from a training ground head injury which left him with concussion. However, ahead of the trip, Ranieri revealed Schmeichel had complained of muscular discomfort and that a decision on his availability would be made in training: "Tomorrow I'll check. If it's nothing serious he'll play." The Foxes No.1 missed the 4-1 loss to a resurgent United side and when asked for an update on his keeper post-match, Ranieri replied: "I prefer to leave Schmeichel out because I didn't want to risk. I think he'll be back Tuesday [in the Champions League versus Porto]."

Bournemouth bounced back from a 4-0 loss to Manchester City with a 1-0 clean sheet win at home against Everton.

Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas scored his first goal of the season in the 23rd minute after connecting with Harry Arter and blasting in a shot from outside of the box. Their only shot on target of the afternoon was all the Cherries needed to secure the three points against the Premier League's second-place team coming into the weekend. The usual back-line of Steve Cook, Simon Francis, Adam Smith and Charlie Daniels secured the clean sheet, their second of the season, at the Vitality Stadium.

Liverpool deconstructed Hull City on Saturday 5-1, in a game which they could have won by an even wider margin at Anfield.

The near capacity crowd witnessed a masterclass from Liverpool's midfield, led by Coutinho, Lallana and Mane. The game started with The Reds dominating, holding possession and creating chances. Lallana linked up with Coutinho to strike the ball in from close range on 17'. Hull's Elmohamady saw red for handling a Coutinho shot on the line, the subsequent penalty was converted by Milner. Lallana provided Mane on the edge of the box in the 36', with Senegalese given too much time to turn and shoot. 3-0. Meyler pulled one back after a Hull corner before Coutinho struck back immediately from long range. Sub Sturridge won another penalty late on which was again converted by Milner. Nothing for Firmino.

Heung-min Son continued his blistering form by scoring a brace, accounting for both of Tottenham's goals as they would hang on to beat Middlesbrough, 1-2.

Son scored his second brace in the three starts he has been handed, and it appears he is locked in as a starter for Mauricio Pochettino's side for many weeks to come. Spurs dominated Boro for the first hour of this match, and they were up by two goals within 23 minutes. The first goal was set up by Vincent Janssen, holding the ball up well before picking out Son who fired from close range. The second was all Son's, who made a clever run from the byline before connecting with a brilliant curling effort. It was not a cakewalk for Spurs though. Boro would pull one back on 65 minutes and the momentum flipped like a switch from there. It was all Tottenham could do to cling to their lead, but they were successfully able to. They now sit 2nd in the table, setting up for a huge match next weekend when they host table leaders Man City.
