Man City dream run continues, Arsenal and Everton win

Manchester City and their perfect start continue to the season as they remained at the top Premier League table after a 4-0 win against Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne, Kelechi Iheanacho, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan scored to secure City’s eighth successive win, an unprecedented feat for the club at the start of a season.

The sending-off of Nolito for aiming a headbutt at Adam Smith in the 86th minute was the only downside in an otherwise impressive performance.

Arsenal with Alexis Sanchez maintains their record against Hull City as Arsene Wenger’s team won 4-1.

Sanchez now has six goals in five matches in all competitions against Hull. He got the first of Saturday’s contest early on after directing home Alex Iwobi’s shot.

Everton inched up to second and two points behind the leaders City with a 3-1 win over Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough went ahead in controversial fashion when Alvaro Negredo’s challenged Maarten Stekelenburg in the 21st minute which resulted in an own goal.

However, Everton was on level terms within three minutes through Gareth Barry, who was on his 600th Premier League match.

Seamus Coleman scored and put Everton in the lead on 42 minutes, before Romelu Lukaku scored to secure the points in first-half.

Islam Slimani who holds the club-record signing capped an incredible Premier League debut as his goals got Leicester City defeated Burnley.

Algerian international striker Islam Slimani scored either side of the break to clinch a 3-0 win.

West Bromwich Albion played magnificently as a 4-2 home win against West Ham United helped ease a bit of speculation about Tony Pulis.

In the first game after Thursday’s announcement of a takeover by Chinese group Yunyi Guokai Sports Development Limited had been completed, West Brom roared to a four-goal lead via Nacer Chadli, who was superb on his home ground debut with Salomon Rondon, James McClean before Chadli once more finding the net.

West Ham, has now conceded 11 goals in their last three matches, did reply with Michail Antonio’s header and Manuel Lanzini’s penalty but they never looked like completing a comeback.
