Arsenal triumph at Turf Moor, the Saints hold the Cityzens & Klopp's men sweep aside Palace

Arsenal fought their way to a full three points against Burnley at Turf Moor, with the match ending 1-0 thanks to a beautiful Martin Ødegaard freekick in the first half.

The Norwegian had been the best player on the pitch by some distance and he found the breakthrough with an exquisite free-kick, whipping an effort over the Burnley wall, with the ball dipping perfectly under the bar and out of the reach of Nick Pope.

When the VAR rejected a Clarets penalty after finding Aaron Ramsdale had in fact got a touch on the ball when challenging Matej Vydra, Ben White was the most relieved man in Turf Moor because of his lead up to the chance.

The Czech striker was allowed to sprint into the box thanks to White's underhit back pass, but fellow summer signing Ramsdale got a critical touch on the ball with his right boot.

After a bleak start to the season, the traveling fans from London had something to cheer about after securing their first three points and scoring their first goal of the season against Norwich City last weekend.

Manchester City 0-0 Southampton

The first half was slow and surprisingly, Pep Guardiola's side mustered no shot on target, despite having Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Jack Grealish leading their line.

The second half had some bit of action, with a big shout for a Saints penalty coming in the 62nd minute, before being overturned by VAR.

The Cityzens thought they had won the game in the last minute of the match through Raheem Sterling, but it was also ruled out after VAR intervention for offside.

There were three shots on target throughout the match, with City getting one and Southampton managing one.

Liverpool 3-0 Crystal palace

Mohamed Salah set up one and scored the other as the Reds soared against a stubborn Palace side.

Sadio Mane was on the score sheet with a record-breaking goal as he becomes the second African to hit the 100-goals mark in the Premier League (after Salah), giving Jurgen Klopp's side the lead in the first half.

For the second goal, Riedewald went to sleep from a Tsimikas' corner delivery and allowed Salah to run clear at the back post.

Palace had a few chances to make something for themselves but nothing came of it.

Naby Keita scored the third goal for the Reds.

The win gives Liverpool 13 points from five games, and they sit top of the table (temporarily).
