A comprehensive wrap of all the collated fixtures, scores and match reports from the Premier League:

SATURDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER 

Chelsea 0-1 Man City - REPORT

Manchester City took revenge for their Champions League final loss to Chelsea and secured a big three points in the early running for the Premier League title with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge. Gabriel Jesus' deflected effort eight minutes into the second-half separated the sides, but City should have been more convincing winners as they laid down a marker after losing to Chelsea three times towards the end of last season.

Man United 0-1 Aston Villa - REPORT

Bruno Fernandes missed a stoppage-time penalty as Aston Villa beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday to prevent the Red Devils moving top of the Premier League.

The Portuguese midfielder blasted his 93rd-minute spot-kick over the bar minutes after Kortney Hause's late headed goal, which earned Villa their first win against United since December 2009.

Leicester City 2-2 Burnley 

Everton 2-0 Norwich City

Leeds United 1-2 West Ham 

Watford 1-1 Newcastle

Brentford 3-3 Liverpool - REPORT

Jurgen Klopp said he was not able to enjoy a "wild ride" as Liverpool twice let the lead slip to draw 3-3 at Brentford on Saturday to edge just one point clear at the top of the Premier League.

Defeats for Chelsea and Manchester United earlier in the day propelled Liverpool to the top of the table and gave the Reds a golden chance to open up a three-point lead.

SUNDAY, 26 SEPTEMBER

Southampton 0-1 Wolves - REPORT

Raul Jimenez scored an emotional first goal since his horrific head injury in November as Wolves earned a 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

Jimenez feared he would never play again after suffering a fractured skull in a clash with David Luiz at Arsenal last autumn.

Arsenal 1-3 Tottenham - MATCH REPORT

Arsenal struck three times inside 35 minutes to beat Tottenham 3-1 on Sunday and move above their north London rivals in the Premier League table.

Just three weeks ago Spurs sat top and Arsenal bottom after their worst start to a league season for 67 years.

However, the Gunners have been rejuvenated by six summer signings and the return to fitness of a number of key players.

MONDAY, 27 SEPTEMBER

Crystal Palace 1-1 Brighton

Neal Maupay snatched a last-gasp equaliser as Brighton rescued a dramatic draw against arch rivals Crystal Palace.

Trailing to Wilfried Zaha's first half penalty, Brighton avoided defeat in the most remarkable fashion.

With just seconds left at Selhurst Park, French striker Maupay punished a poor clearance from Palace 'keeper Vicente Guaita to leave the hosts stunned.
