DEBUT goals and late-match winners were the stories of Saturday in the Premier League, as many of the leagueâ€™s big boys won big matches.
Last yearâ€™s champions, however, lost.
Anthony Martial and Matthew Jarvis introduced themselves to their fan bases with solid goals, while Chelsea was well-beaten by Everton during a seven-match docket of games in England on Saturday.
Letâ€™s dig in.
Manchester United 3-1 Liverpool
A poor first half met an exciting second, as the two major rivals combined for a quartet of goals. The best-looking came from newcomers Anthony Martialâ€™s wonder dribble and Christian Bentekeâ€˜s overhead kick, but Daley Blind and Ander Herrera scored the goals that put United up 2-0.
Everton 3-1 Chelsea
Chelseaâ€™s boss might think his team was better than a no-point performance, but the majority of onlookers think otherwise. Everton got a trio of goals from Steven Naismith, and only a Nemanja Matic wonder strike could beat Tim Howard.
Arsenal 2-0 Stoke City
The Gunners did everything well except finishing, but given the chances they produced against Mark Hughesâ€˜ side, nothing but three points would be coming Arsene Wengerâ€˜s way.
Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City
Both teams couldâ€™ve won it, but an unlikely hero found the winner for City. Eighteen-year-old striker Kelechi Iheanacho subbed into the match in the 89th minute, and scored the matchâ€™s only goal in the 90th. Kevin De Bruyne debuted, but Sergio Aguero limped off for the perfect league leaders.
Watford 1-0 Swansea City
The Hornets scored their first home Premier League goal since being promoted, a delightful little combo between Heurelho Gomes, Troy Deeney and finisher Odion Ighalo. Valon Behramiâ€˜s petulant red card threatened the Vicarage Road crowd, but Watford held on.
Norwich City 3-1 Bournemouth
Wes Hoolahan has been perhaps the best playmaker in the Premier League this young season. Thatâ€™s no joke, and neither was the Canariesâ€™ multi-goal win.
West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Southampton
Not much to like here for either side, but Saints will rue the lost points more almost as much as the Baggies will accept the one they picked up. – NBC Sports
