Game week six of the Premier League provided more drama and goals. Read our review of all the big game action below including more mesmerising displays from Liverpool and Manchester City.
Mourinho and Manchester United bounceback with emphatic victory over Premier League Champions Leicester City
Manchester United took a load of stick midweek but still managed to trash Premier League champions Leicester City 4-1.
Manager, Jose Mourinho, deservedly dropped captain Wayne Rooney. This might sound hugely harsh but “naturedly fat boys” like Rooney rarely last past the soccer age of 30.
A header by the ‘forgotten’ Chris Smalling put United ahead before Juan Mata, who Jose sold when he was at Chelsea, got United going.

Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba – with his first for the club – both scored from corners, with Demarai Gray’s spectacular long-range strike the only consolation for Leicester. Gray being a hero of Birmingham City who had to let him go to the highest bidder.
Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur continue red-hot Premier League form
Liverpool were magnificent, a third straight Premier League win courtesy of an emphatic victory over 10-man Hull. Adam Lallana, James Milner, a Sadio Mane brace and Philippe Coutinho decided it.
Ahmed Elmohamady saw red for handball in the box which prevented a goal.
David Meyler lashed in for Hull. Pace, high pressing, hunting in packs, speed of thought, quick passing … Liverpool had it all and now look like genuine Premier League title contenders.

Son Heung-min, apparently surplus to requirements at the season’s outset, and in for the injured Harry Kane, scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur moved up to second in the Premier League with victory at Middlesbrough.
Boro pulled a goal back through Ben Gibson but have now lost three on the bounce. Tottenham’s win on Teesside means they have made their best start in the top flight for 51 years.
Arsenal hammer Chelsea at Emirates – while Manchester City and Pep remain perfect
Arsenal hammered London rivals Chelsea as the Antonio Conte regime hit the buffers. Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil all marked the 20-year anniversary since Arsene Wenger took charge. As fluent as we have seen Arsenal for a while. As pedestrian as we have seen Chelsea.

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola continue to take on all-comers – Swansea were the latest to succumb.
Sergio Aguero – who else – fired the visitors in front. Fernando Llorente equalised with a cracking drive before Aguero netted his second with a disputed penalty and Raheem Sterling added a clever third.
Who, if anyone, is going to challenge City for the title?
