Tottenham deservedly ended Pep Guardiola’s perfect Premier League start and underlined their own title credentials with a thrilling victory over Manchester City at White Hart Lane.
Guardiola had won his previous six games and 10 of his previous 11 matches in charge, but City were outplayed by a vibrant Spurs who moved second in the table and are now the league’s only unbeaten team.
Spurs dominated from the start and were in front early on when Aleksandar Kolarov sliced Danny Rose’s cross into his own net after nine minutes.
Dele Alli confirmed their superiority eight minutes before half-time with a cool finish from Son Heung-min’s pass.
Stoke snatch late point at Old Trafford
Stoke snatched a point at Manchester United as Joe Allen capitalised on a spill from David de Gea to punish the hosts’ lax first-half finishing.
After a string of saves from Lee Grant before the break, United made the breakthrough when substitute Anthony Martial swept home a curling shot.
It appeared to be a fatal blow to a Stoke side who had rarely threatened.
But when De Gea failed to hold Glen Johnson’s shot and Jon Walters’ follow-up came off the bar, Allen poked in.
Liverpool continue their impressive form
James Milner’s late penalty gave Liverpool a hard-fought victory over Swansea, increasing the scrutiny on Swans boss Francesco Guidolin.
Leroy Fer gave the hosts a first-half lead when he steered the ball home from close range at the back post after Baston Borja’s knockdown from a corner.
Roberto Firmino levelled shortly after half-time when he headed in from Jordan Henderson’s cross.
Milner netted the winner six minutes from time after Firmino was fouled.
Heartbreak for Burnley at Turf Moor
Burnley suffered a cruel defeat at Turf Moor as Arsenal secured victory with a controversial Laurent Koscielny goal in the final act of an intriguing match.
In added time, Theo Walcott headed across goal towards Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain whose effort went in off what appeared to be Koscielny’s elbow.
Costa continues scoring
Chelsea stopped the rot after successive Premier League defeats as they ground down Hull at the KCOM Stadium.
The hosts enjoyed the better of a cagey first half but went behind when Willian swept home a curling shot after good work from Diego Costa after the break.
Costa found the top corner with a similar strike to double the lead after Nemanja Matic’s powerful run.
Hull never recovered and could have been further behind but for Pedro’s poor finishing from six yards.
