Manchester United's woes under Ole Gunnar Solskjær continued after Leicester City beat them 4-2 ending their 29 unbeaten away run. Youri Tielsman, Caglar Soyuncu, Jarmy Vardy and Daka scored for Leicester as Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford straight from injury scored for United.This has worsed the situation for Ole as majority of United fans are now calling for his sacking.

Norwich and Brighton and Hove Albion shared points in a goalless draw while Southampton got their first win of the season after edging past Leeds United 1-0. Manchester City easily beat Burnley 2-0 at Etihad Stadium with Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne on the score sheet.

On the last game of the day, Edouard Mendy was the hero for Chelsea as his incredible second half saves helped them take all the three points thanks to Ben Chilwell first half goal.

After the results, Chelsea now sit top of the table with 19 points after playing eight games. Liverpool who face Manchester United next are second with 18 points. Pep Gurdiola's Manchester City are third with 17 points and Brighton are up to fourth place with 15 points.
