NEWCASTLE 1-0 LEICESTER

The match was delayed by an hour due to a side panel on the scoreboard flapping in the wind (really), but Newcastle finally got their first win of the season following a second-half goal from the unlikely source of Gabriel Obertan. They remain in 18th while Leicester are yet to win since thumping five past Manchester United.

EVERTON 3-0 ASTON VILLA

Are Everton back on track? It appears that way. Ross Barkley started for the first time this season on Saturday as the Toffees comfortably saw off Aston Villa and moved to within four points of a top-four place. Villa, despite their bright start, have scored just four goals all season. Yikes.

CRYSTAL PALACE 1-2 CHELSEA

Chelsea had Cesar Azpilicueta sent off in the first half of their 2-1 win at Crystal Palace. Deserved red, no complaints. But referee Craig Pawson balanced out the numbers minutes later by giving Palace defender Damien Delaney a harsh second booking. Controversy aplenty.

ARSENAL 2-2 HULL

Just two wins from eight Premier League games leaves Arsenal in seventh place and trailing leaders Chelsea by a whopping 11 points. It could have been worse, too, had Danny Welbeck not scored a late equaliser. The Gunners simply haven’t been good enough so far this season...

MANCHESTER CITY 4-1 TOTTENHAM

Who added Sergio Aguero to their fantasy team minutes before the deadline? Why thank you very much, Mr Aguero. The Argentine scored all four goals for Manchester City in a 4-1 win over a Tottenham side who had Premier League debutant Federico Fazio sent off.

SOUTHAMPTON 8-0 SUNDERLAND

Sunderland, having conceded just seven goals in seven games before the match, were handed a beating of Gibraltan proportions by Southampton. To top it off, Santiago Vergini scored one of the most ludicrous own goals of all time and goalkeeper Vito Mannone had a shocker. Not good.

Report: Southampton 8 (eight) Sunderland 0

REAL MADRID WILL SMELL BLOOD

No disrespect to big Bobby Z, but if Liverpool can't deal with Bobby Zamora how are they going to contain Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale? Goal's Liam Twomey has raised that exact point. Check out what Mr Twomey had to say on the Reds' performance ahead of Wednesday's showdown with Real Madrid...

REDKNAPP REACTION

On Adel Taarabt: “He is not injured. He played in a reserve game the other day and I could have run about more than he did... I can't keep protecting people who don’t want to run about and train, and are about three stone overweight. What am I supposed to keep saying? Keep getting your 60, 70 grand a week and don't train? What's the game coming to?”

RODGERS REACTION

On Balotelli: "It’ll drop for the boy. The most important thing to me is his work rate. He’s working really hard. It’ll drop for him. He's seen as a direct replacement to Luis [Suarez]. I’ve said before, Luis is irreplaceable, a real world-class talent. That’s not what’s being asked of Mario. He’s a great boy, I’ve enjoyed working with him. He wants to be better. He’s a completely different player to Luis."

FLOP OF THE MATCH

Angel Rangel - Struggled up against the pace of Moses, though was harshly penalised for a foul on the winger which led to Adam's equaliser. Poor pass led to the Stoke winner as he also stood off Assaidi in the build-up.
