Sky Sports are reporting that Andre Moritz has agreed a new contract with Crystal Palace.

Moritz was one of the stars in Palace's push for promotion last season and he had been attracting interest from some bigger clubs, so tying the Brazilian midfielder to a longer deal is a great move by Ian Holloway. The report from Sky Sports suggests Palace are set to announce more deals in the coming days, with Peterborough striker Dwight Gayle and West Brom winger Jerome Thomas set to strengthen the Eagles' squad.

Arsenal a good goal called offside and saw two reasonable penalty shouts ignored as they dropped a 1-0 decision to old nemesis Stoke City.

The defending on Jese's lone goal of the match was poor but Arsenal will feel they got the short end of the stick from the officials. Lacazette's goal should certainly have been allowed and if even one of the two penalty shouts had been called the dodgy defense from Monreal would have been forgotten.

Manchester United continued their strong start to the season with a convincing 0-4 win over Swansea City in which Paul Pogba provided a goal and two assists.

The opening half of the game was a possession battle which the Red Devils won, but outside a header off the bar on 10 minutes by Phil Jones, the Swans defense looked up to the task, keeping Romelu Lukaky quiet. Right on the 45th minute though, a corner kick was headed powerfully by Pogba on toward goal and Eric Bailly was there to poach the ball in on the line. It would remain 0-1 until the 80th minute and that's when the explosion happened. First, a Swansea turnover allowed Henrikh Mkhitaryan to pick out an open Lukaku who slotted home for his 3rd goal of the young campaign. Mkhi then fed Pogba a clever ball and the latter looped one over the Swans keeper for the third goal. Substitute Anthony Martial joined in the fun moments after that, with Pogba again playing provider. The defense was solid but were not tested too much. There is fantasy gold all over this side right now.

Swansea City's home opener was one to forget as they ran up against a blossoming Manchester United attack and were beaten soundly, 0-4.

It was always going to be a tough assignment for Paul Clement to get a positive result here, but his gameplan at least kept his side in the match right up until the 45th minute. Their best chance to score came very early on when Jordan Ayew found himself in loads of space, took it into the area and tried to lob one into the far corner but it hit the woodwork. The defense, meanwhile, did its best to stave off United's possession advantage as Roque Mesa made his first PL start in central midfield. They would concede just before halftime though from a corner and United were in control for the entire second half, eventually pounding the Swans with three goals in the space of four minutes. It is rather clear Swansea need to do some shopping for impact players before this transfer window closes.

Slaven Bilic may be forced back into the transfer market after Winston Reid suffered what looked to be a serious calf injury when warming up at St Marys’ on Saturday.

The West Ham centre-back, who has just signed a new six-year contract, only returned to the squad 3 weeks ago following knee surgery in May, but at first glance, Reid could be set for another extended spell out after being carried off on a stretcher. Slaven Bilic made four changes from the side well-beaten at Old Trafford, and it was one of those players – Angelo Ogbonna - who was recalled to the starting line-up to partner Jose Fonte. James Collins is capable of playing centrally while Cheikhou Kouyate had a spell as makeshift defender last season, but neither is ideal. Bilic may consider a move for Eliaquim Mangala, who was on the West Ham radar, before they dropped their interest in favour of William Carvalho.

Hal Robson-Kanu was the hero and almost a goat as his goal provided the difference before he was sent off late.

The Wales international contributed a second unlikely scorer for Tony Pulis for the second consecutive weekend. Albion completed their second consecutive 1-0 win of the season in fine Pulls fashion. The one downside was Robson-Kanu being sent off late after his elbow came in too high fighting for a ball in the air.

Warford upset the odds to secure an impressive away win over Bournemouth.

The Hornets went ahead thanks to the contributions of two new signings. Andre Gray crossed for Brazilian Richarlison to prod home the first for Marco Silva's men. The second was a throwback to twelve months ago though, as Etienne Capoue struck from range to double the lead. Bournemouth started with afobe up front, but he saw his best chance sved while Josh King also headed an opportunity over the bar.

Liverpool needed the comforts of home to secure its first win of the season in a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

After a hectic, yet disappointing 3-3 draw with Watford on the opening weekend, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made some defensive changes–in came Andrew Robertson, Joe Gomez and Ragnar Klaven– to secure a clean sheet in a hard-fought match with visiting Palace. It was Saido Mane who scored the lone goal and match-winner, thanks to summer signing Dominic Solanke's effort. Solanke dispossessed Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic near the penalty area and the ball fell fortuitously to Mane inside the box in the 73rd minute as the Senegalese hit the back of the net for the second straight match.

Crystal Palace threw its whole team back, but was undone by one mental mistake in a 1-0 loss to Liverpool.

In the 73rd minute, Luka Milivojevic failed to get the ball out of the area quick enough, allowing Dominic Solanke to knock the ball loose for Sadio Mane's match-winner. Despite the loss, Palace moved in the right direction with a solid defensive performance following the season-opening 3-0 loss to Huddersfield Town last weekend. Wayne Hennessey was masterful with 12 saves as Liverpool easily could have come away with three or four on the afternoon. But the Eagles only managed one shot on goal with star attacker Wilfried Zaha.

Tom Heaton, one of the stars of Burnley's survival last season was beaten near side by Hal Robson-Kanu as West Brom beat the Clare's 1-0 at Turf Moor.

It is hardly a surprise when Sean Dyche's struggles to score. That makes the margins thin for the Clarets and that was the case again on Saturday as a single well-taken shot meant dropping all three points. It was hardly an easy save but it was the sort of thing that went right last season.

Harry Maguire opened his scoring account for Leicester City as the Foxes picked up 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Craig Shakespeare's side responded from last week's 4-3 defeat at Arsenal with an efficient performance at the King Power Stadium. The hosts took the lead inside a minute when Shinji Okazaki tapped in after Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan failed to hold a low strike from Riyad Mahrez. The rest of the first period saw Okazaki and Jamie Vardy, who would later hobble off, fail to convert chances while Seagulls striker Glenn Murray had a goal disallowed for offside. However, the missed opportunities did not come back to haunt Leicester as Maguire rose at the back post to head home a Mahrez corner to double the lead in the 54th minute. Aside from the concern over the health of Vardy, the Foxes will be happy with the result.
