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

SATURDAY, 11 SEPTEMBER

Crystal Palace 3-0 Tottenham - MATCH REPORT

Crystal Palace ended 10-man Tottenham's perfect start to the Premier League season as Wilfried Zaha's penalty and a late double from Odsonne Edouard sealed a win over the woeful leaders on Saturday.

Zaha ensured Palace took advantage of their numerical superiority when he netted from the spot after Ben Davies's handball.

Edouard came off the bench to wrap up the points with two goals on his debut following his £15 million move from Celtic in August.

Watford 0-2 Wolves

South Korea forward Hwang Hee-chan scored his first Premier League goal for Wolves in their 2-0 win at Watford.

Wolves' first league goal this season - an own goal by Watford's Francisco Sierralta - was followed by Hwang's 83rd minute tap-in in his debut appearance after joining from Leipzig last month.

Brentford 0-1 Brighton

Brighton won 1-0 at Brentford thanks to Leandro Trossard's 90th minute strike.

Arsenal 1-0 Norwich City - MATCH REPORT

Arsenal eased the pressure on under-fire manager Mikel Arteta and earned their first Premier League win of the season after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sank Norwich 1-0 on Saturday.

The Gunners captain's 66th-minute winner released the tension that had been bubbling up inside the Emirates Stadium and lifted his team off the foot of the table.

Man United 4-1 Newcastle - MATCH REPORT

Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a sensational return to Manchester United as his debut double inspired a 4-1 win against Newcastle, while Arsenal eased the pressure on Mikel Arteta with a 1-0 victory over Norwich on Saturday.

Ronaldo's second debut for United was the headline act as the Premier League resumed after the international break and the Portugal superstar did not disappoint his adoring fans at Old Trafford.

Southampton 0-0 West Ham 

West Ham striker Michail Antonio was sent off in their 0-0 draw at Southampton. 

Leicester City 0-1 Man City

Bernardo Silva showed Manchester City can cope just fine with their array of talent as he fired the champions to a 1-0 win at Leicester.

Portugal playmaker Silva struck in the 62nd minute with a close-range finish after Caglar Soyuncu blocked Joao Cancelo's drive.

Second placed City have now won their last three games.

Chelsea 3-0 Aston Villa - MATCH REPORT 

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku scored at Stamford Bridge for the first time as his double sealed a 3-0 win against Aston Villa on Saturday.

After scoring on his second Chelsea debut in the win at Arsenal in August, Lukaku made it three goals from three appearances with a pair of predatory strikes.

SUNDAY, 12 SEPTEMBER

Leeds United 0-3 Liverpool - MATCH REPORT

Liverpool moved alongside Chelsea and Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 win at Leeds overshadowed by serious injury suffered by teenage star Harvey Elliott.

The hosts' midfielder Pascal Struijk was sent-off for a challenge that appeared to break the 18-year-old's left leg midway through the second-half.

By that point Liverpool were already comfortably ahead thanks to Mohamed Salah's 100th Premier League goal and Fabinho's 50th minute strike.

Sadio Mane rounded off the scoring in stoppage time.

MONDAY, 13 SEPTEMBER

Everton 3-1 Burnley

Everton moved level on points with the Premier League leaders after roaring back from a goal down to beat Burnley on Monday.

Ben Mee put the visitors deservedly in front at Goodison Park before a three-goal blitz in six minutes just after the hour continued Rafael Benitez's strong start as Everton boss.

Michael Keane's header against his old club equalised before two of Benitez's signings Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray turned the game around.

The Toffees have taken 10 points from their opening four league games under the Spaniard to move alongside local rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and top-of-the-table Manchester United.
