What a fantastic Premier League weekend: Bournemouth finally won a league game this season, coming back from a two-goal deficit in the second half to beat Nottingham Forest (3-2), Chelsea earned their second consecutive win at Stamford Bridge, beating West Ham 2-1, and Ivan Toney sent a message to Gareth Southgate about his Qatar squad with a hatrick against Leeds: Brentford defeated Leeds 5-2.
Chelsea vs. West Ham: Following Michail Antonio's scrappy goal in the second half, Chelsea's super-subs Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz turned the game around by scoring two quick goals. As the game approached its conclusion, Cornet thought he had earned West Ham a point, but a foul on Edourdo Mendy by Bowen that led to the goal saw the last-minute goal annulled, and the Blues returned to winning ways.
In other news, Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Aston Villa. Erling Haaland was in a good position to tap in Kevin Debruyne's deflated short to break the deadlock, but Villa fought back with Ramsey setting up Leon Bailey to cancel out Haaland's opener.
