Premier League results: Chelsea maintains top spot

In the weekend’s Premier League games, Chelsea and Liverpool continued their blistering starts to the season as both clubs made it five wins in a row with the former maintaining top spot.

Manchester City walloped Fulham to move into third place.

The Merseyside team defeated a lethargic Spurs side at Wembley, before Eden Hazard continued his fine form by grabbing a hat-trick in a come-from-behind win over Cardiff City ergo, going top on goal difference.

Elsewhere, a superb Granit Xhaka freekick saw Arsenal edge out Newcastle while Bournemouth mauled Leichester and Zaha scored the lone goal in Crystal Palace victory over Huddersfield.

Watford’s stride was halted by Manchester United as they lost 2-1 to Manchester United at Vicarage Road.

In the day’s early fixture, goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino put Liverpool in control before Erik Lamela’s late reply for Spurs.

Manchester City made a very bright start with Leroy Sane scoring inside the first two minutes. David Silva and Raheem Sterling added further goals as the champions coasted to victory.

Cardiff took a surprise lead against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before Hazard took centre stage, although Willian’s strike that rounded off the Blues’ victory was arguably his side’s best of the game.

Ryan Fraser scored two first-half goals to put Bournemouth on their way to victory over Leicester, with Joshua King adding a third before the break from the penalty spot.

Things got worse for the Foxes when Wes Morgan received his second booking after 68 minutes but, after Adam Smith made it 4-0, James Maddison and Marc Albrighton pulled back two goals in the last three minutes.
