Arsenal delivered the most eye-catching half of Unai Emery's tenure so far as they came from behind to beat Leicester 3-1 at the Emirates.

Leicester had received their due reward for fine pressure during the first half. It was not one of their two strikers, Vardy and Iheanacho who created the goal, rather left-back Ben Chilwell, whose ball was turned into the net by Hector Bellerin. Mesut Ozil, Arsenal's standout performer on the night and wearing the captain's armband, drew The Gunners level with a cool one-touch finish. After the break Aubameyang entered the fray and scored twice in 6 minutes, with Ozil the architect in chief behind the sublime moves which led to Auba's tap-ins.

Mark Hughes is hoping the injury sustained by Mario Lemina at the Vitality Stadium is not serious.

Southampton secured a valuable point against their south coast rivals Bournemouth on Saturday, but the 0-0 draw was marred slightly by the loss of Lemina who limped off midway through the second half. "He got a bang on his ribs just before half time and went up for a ball and hyper extended his knee as he came down," explained the Saints boss. "He was able to carry on so that would suggest he’s just going to be sore for a couple of days we hope, but we will just have to wait and see. Hopefully it will just settle down." Newcastle arrive at St Marys’ in week ten and Hughes will be looking to avoid a loss to the leagues bottom side. Stuart Armstrong is one possible replacement, although he has struggled to establish himself since arriving from Celtic in the summer, while forgotten man James Ward-Prowse is another who could slot into a central midfield role.

Chris Hughton will run the rule over several players following injuries picked up during the win over Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Glenn Murray stayed on Tyneside after he was stretchered off and taken to hospital following a sickening clash of heads which left the Seagulls striker "out cold." Thankfully, the club provided an official update on Saturday evening confirming the 35-year-old had been cleared of serious injury. "He's going to be sore for a short while and this week we will do the appropriate things we need to do with him. We are just happy he's OK." After missing the five previous games due to an ankle complaint, Pascal Gross is "not far away" from a return, although Hughton won’t be taking any risks ahead of the clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers. "It's those final bits we've got to be sure of." Veteran full-back Bruno Saltor needs checked after he was forced off with a back problem – Brazilian Bernardo could be in line for only his second league start having arrived from RB Leipzig in the summer.

Jordan Henderson is rated as a major doubt for the Champions League tie against Crvena Zvezda on Wednesday night.

The Liverpool skipper could only manage 45-minutes at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday before being replaced as a precaution because of tight hamstring. "It was not that he felt nothing, but he didn’t feel a lot," Klopp said after the narrow win. "He wanted to carry on – that’s a good sign. We decided no. Hopefully it’s nothing." Henderson will have a scan this week to determine the extent of the problem. Meanwhile, Sadio Mane [thumb] ‘could’ return to the matchday squad although a hamstring problem is likely to keep Naby Keita side-lined. "They are normal issues. Both are not too serious; they cannot play today [vs Huddersfield], which is never good, but it shouldn’t be that long," Klopp told BT Sport prior to kick-off. "Sadio especially, we have to see how it develops in the next few days. Naby, maybe we have to be a bit more patient."

Andriy Yarmolenko’s season hangs in the balance after the West Ham winger was stretchered off during Saturdays loss to London-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The summer signing from Borussia Dortmund was just beginning to find his feet following a slow start to his Premier League career. Yarmolenko made his full debut at Goodison Park [GW5] scoring twice and has become staple of Manuel Pellegrini’s line-up. Post-match the Hammers boss confirmed Yarmolenko had a problem "between his foot and his ankle" with early tests confirming an Achilles injury. However, a further assessment confirmed a rupture and plans are already afoot to undergo surgery. Reports suggest the 28-year-old could be missing for around six months, although Premier League injury data collected over the previous decade indicates that the average return-to-play is nearer to seven months [221 days] meaning Yarmolenko would miss the final domestic fixture of the campaign on May 12. His absence opens the door to Grady Diangana who announced his first-team arrival with a standout performance in the 8-0 demolition of Macclesfield in the Carabao Cup last month.

Despite a hard-fought effort, Crystal Palace was left heartbroken in the end of a 2-0 away loss at the hands of Everton.

After a three-match unbeaten streak, Palace has not been able to carry over that momentum into October as they dive further into a three-match losing streak. Despite Wilfried Zaha overcoming an adductor injury suffered during the international break, Palace could only manage three shots on target. But their best chance came in the 60th minute after Zaha was taken down in the box by Seamus Coleman. Luka Milivojevic, who is usually a sure-footed penalty taker, sent a lazy effort right down the middle that was saved by the outstretched legs of Jordan Pickford. Palace were left to regret their one chance when the Toffees scored two goals in the final five minutes of the match to steal the three points from a solid effort on the visitors' part.

Everton got two last-minute goals from substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun for a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

From the 60th minute on, this game looked like Everton's to win after Jordan Pickford kept the game scoreless with a massive penalty save on a shot from Luka Milivojevic. The Toffees took the lead in the 87th minute when Ademola Lookman found Dominic Calvert-Lewin with an inch-perfect cross for the easy header, just five minutes after the duo came off the bench in one last hope for Marco Silva. Then it was Tosun who broke away on a counterattack in the 89th with Palace pressing forward and finished underneath Wayne Hennessey for the three points at Goodison.

Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the match as Liverpool picked up a tightly contested win at the John Smith Stadium.

He still doesn't look close to the dominating force of last season but Liverpool supporters and fantasy managers alike will welcome a sign of life from the Egypt international. Xherdan Shaqiri, subbing in for an injured Sadio Mane, assisted. The win sees the Reds maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
