Nigeria struggled to threaten much and settled for a point in a 0-0 draw with Iran.

Peter Odemwingie started on the bench and when he came into the game with about 20 minutes to go, it was the first sign of life from the Nigerian attack. The showing was consistent with their previous match against the United States just before the tournament began. The result opens the door for Bosnia and Herzegovina to grab 2nd position in the group. Joseph Yobo of Norwich City replaced an injured Godfrey Oboabona and may be pegged to start in their next match.

Philippe Coutinho returned to the Liverpool starting line-up for a Premier League match for the first time this season and headlined a thrilling 3-2 win over Leicester City.

Coming off a mid-week loss to the same Foxes, Liverpool were looking for their summer want-away man to rebound with a big match. The Brazilian delivered with an assist on Mohamed Salah's opener and then a beautiful free kick from distance to make it 2-0. The Reds struggled to keep the lead conceding a goal to Shinji Okazaki before Jordan Henderson netted a 3rd for Jurgen Klopp's men. It was a nervous close as Jamie Vardy replied almost immediately and then had a penalty attempt to tie the score only to see Simon Mignolet save it to preserve the win. Breathless stuff at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy scored in the 69th minute but then failed to convert a penalty as Leicester City's bid to take points from Liverpool twice in a week fell just short on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy continued his impressive rebound season with another goal. Things looked like they'd get even better for the former non-league forward when he earned a penalty that could have tied the game. Vardy's penalty was far from his best effort and Simon Mignolet saved it to ensure that Liverpool would pick up all three points on the road. The Foxes had to come back from 2-0 down after Philippe Coutinho picked up a goal and an assist in the first half.

Huddersfield Town and Burnley played out a goalless draw at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Terriers were solid defensively in a match that saw both sides struggle in the final third. David Wagner's men limited the Clarets to just five shots (three on target) and goalkeeper Jonas Lossl earned his fourth clean sheet of the campaign. Considering Town were without top scorer Steve Mounie, who missed out with a heel injury, a share of the points was a decent yield. Huddersfield remain eighth in the table even on points with Burnley (9) but ahead on goal difference (+2).

Richarlison scored in the 90th minute as Watford earned a dramatic 2-1 win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The Hornets took the fight to the home side early and grabbed the lead after just 13 minutes when Andre Gray scored his first goal for the club. Marco Silva's side were unable to double the lead before the break, which proved costly, as Swansea half-time substitute Tammy Abraham scored the equalizer on 56 minutes after Wilfred Bony's initial shot was saved by Heurelho Gomes. But the visitors would save face thanks to Richarlison, who stole the ball from Roque Mesa and shimmed past Alfie Mawson to race clear and fire into the roof of the net. The dramatic win moves Watford up to 6th in the table, on 11 points, while Swansea, who remain 14th, have lost their first three home games of the season.

Sources from within Manchester United say the club will decide next week on whether Paul Pogba requires surgery to repair his damaged left hamstring.

Officially there has no definitive timeline announced and in response to growing media speculation of an extended period on the sidelines for the France international, Jose Mourinho had this to say: "Any comment, view or rumour is totally wrong, because we do not know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days." The United boss then went on to add [before the trip to Southampton]: "I have no idea [when he will be back]. So, I’m not going to cry or be counting the days, not at all." However, reports suggest that the club have been in touch with Finnish muscle repair specialist Sakari Orava with a decision set to be made about whether or not surgery is required. If the midfielder was to go under the knife, then Pogba could potentially be out of action for around three months.

Oumar Niasse, who almost left Everton in the summer, came in from the cold to score twice as Everton got their second league win of the season.

The teams went in level at the interval after the first half featured no attacking event of note. That said, Simon Francis will be grateful that he was not reprimanded by the referee for elbowing Wayne Rooney in the face. Rooney underwent length treatment and emerged for the second half stitched up. Josh King put the visitors ahead just after the break with a fine finish from 20 yards and Everton were fortunate not to concede again instantly when Pickford saved from Defoe. The Toffees' lack of focal point up front was clear but Niasse provided it when he came off the bench after the hour mark, notching up his first PL goal for Everton with a powerful finish. He grabbed his second 5 minutes later, finishing on the second attempt after Begovic parried his header. A huge win for Ronald Koeman's side.

Alvaro Morata is surely going to the apple of fantasy manager's eye in the upcoming week after a hat-trick on Saturday.

Morata led the way for Chelsea to bring the club into third place on 13 points in a 4-0 win against Stoke City. The Real Madrid product, who is now joint-top of the goalscoring charts with six goals, opened the scoring in the first 90 seconds after latching onto a pass over the top of the defense from Cesar Azpilicueta. After Pedro doubled the Blues' lead in the 30th, Morata had to wait until the 77th minute to score his second, after beating two defenders down the left and chipping the keeper. Just five minutes later, the Spaniard added his third after Azpilicueta passed across the box for Morata's tap-in.

Stoke City endured a week to forget following a blowout 4-0 loss to Chelsea at home on Saturday afternoon.

The club has lost all three of its matches this week, following a League Cup loss to Bristol City and last weekend's defeat to Newcastle, and is in the middle of a five-match winless streak during a horrid September. The Potters could only manage two shots on goal against Chelsea, who piled it on late with two goals in the final 15 minutes from hat-trick hero Alvaro Morata. Morata tore apart the Stoke defense, evident on his first two goals when he sprinted away from the Stoke defense before finishing daftly past Jack Butland. The loss means the Potters still sit two points above the relegation zone.

Romelu Lukaku scored his sixth Premier League goal in six games, providing the one goal cushion for Manchester United's 1-0 win away to Southampton.

Manchester United were good value for their first half lead. They moved the ball with fluidity and confidence whilst Southampton failed to muster an attack of note. Romelu Lukaku gave United the lead after 20 minutes. Ashley Young, who started at left back, created some space and sent a cross into the box. Forster saved Lukaku's initial effort with his head but the Belgian made no mistake when the rebound came to him. Rashford also went close in the opening half with a free-kick fizzing past the post. Aside from one Lukaku chance created by Mkhitaryan, Southampton had all the opportunities in the second half but their poor goalscoring record at home continued - Long and Romeu in particular had chances but failed to convert. United didn't play near their potential but clung on for three points.

Manchester City is getting used to blowing out its opposition following a 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The win means that Manchester City retains its spot atop the table with Manchester United while outscoring its opponents 16-0 in the last three Premier League matches. However, the Sky Blues could only manage one goal in the first half, a skillful strike from Leroy Sane, who also added two assists, in the 44th minute. But after the break, it was all over: Raheem Sterling added two goals as substitute in the 51st and 59th, Sergio Aguero continued his scoring roll with a goal in the 79th minute and Fabian Delph rocketed a strike from outside the box in the 89th.

Despite the arrival of Roy Hodgson, nothing seems to have changed for Crystal Palace this season.

Palace suffered its worst loss of the season on Saturday at the Etihad, a 5-0 loss to league-leading Manchester City. The Eagles also became the only Premier League club, and one of three clubs in all four divisions in English Football League history, to go goalless in its first six matches to start a season. Palace couldn't even muster a shot on goal against City despite holding the club to just one goal in the first 45 minutes. But the floodgates opened in the second half with Raheem Sterling scoring two and Sergio Aguero adding another.
