Thomas Tuchel’s side dominated the first half and earned a 19th minute goal from their new summer signing Kalidou Kouliably after he powered home a volley from Marc Cucurella’s perfectly crossed corner.
Spurs were struggling to make an impression until the second half when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg managed to equalize.
Controversy sparked however when referee Anthony Taylor failed to penalise Rodrigo Bentancur for a challenge on Kai Havertz, which brought fury to the two managers, Tuchel and Conte, who both went face-to-face and ended up receiving yellow cards.
After the game restored, Chelsea regained the lead when a pass from Raheem Sterling found the feet of Reece James and celebrations at Stamford Bridge were soaring.
Chelsea couldn’t see the game out however and a header from Harry Kane in stoppage time took the game to a 2-2 draw.
Tempers continued to rise and at full time, Tuchel and Conte clashed once more, somewhat comically to earn red cards with a melee of players and staff arguably spoiling the fun. A great end to the weekend’s action.
Man City signing Gabriel Jesus scored two goals for Arsenal in an entertaining encounter at the Emirates Stadium.
The Brazilian striker took his Premier League total from six goals to eight in his past nine appearances with two goals scored before half time.
Early into the second half came a glimmer of hope for Leicester when William Saliba scored an own goal. Shortly after, Granit Xhaka restored Arsenal’s two goal lead once again finding the back of Danny Ward’s net bringing the score to 3-1.
James Maddison found the bottom left hand corner with a right footed shot from a difficult angle to put Leicester back in it in the 74th minute, but it was Martinelli with a shot from outside the box assisted by Jesus to seal the deal for Arsenal 4-2.
The Premier League champions produced a blistering display the Etihad Stadium winning 4-0 against Bournemouth and putting them at the top of the table.
Dominating since kick-off, City took no time in putting the ball away in the first half with an opener from Gundogan setting the tone for the blues. An impressive strike from Kevin De Bruyne took the tally to 2-0 as he bent the ball into the bottom corner with the outside of his boot. Phil Foden made sure of the points before half time with a shot that Bournemouth keeper Mark Travers couldn’t keep out.
The cherries remained the weaker side into the second half, and although City couldn’t plot another goal themselves, an own goal from Jefferson Lerma took the score to a breezy 4-0 for Pep Guardiola’s side.
City top the Premier League table maintaining their 100 per cent start to the season, while Bournemouth take their first loss putting them in the tenth position.
Was it Brentford’s solid play or United’s shocking performance behind the humiliating 4-0 result against Man United at the Gtech Community Stadium?
Brentford scored four goals in the first 35 minutes of the game, leaving United supporters stunned as they continue their losing streak.
A strike from Josh Dasilva put the hosts ahead when his shot couldn’t be saved by David de Gea. Mathias Jenson doubled the lead shortly after when he dispossessed Christian Eriksen, following with goals from Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo to put them 4-0 up.
The defeat comes as United’s seventh in a row away from home in their worst run since 1936, and while Brentford will be celebrating their historic win, United boss Erik ten Hag faces the challenging task of picking up his players in time for the visit of Liverpool to Old Trafford next Monday.
Aston Villa and Everton managers came face to face for the first time since their old days playing against each other in Chelsea v Liverpool games.
Both sides had opened their season on a loss, but it was Gerrard’s team who got their first win of the campaign with a dominant display at Villa Park.
Aston Villa looked the more dominant side in the first half and got their breakthrough when Ollie Watkins, making his first start of the season, found Danny Ings inside the box and put them 1-0 up.
Everton, still lacking a recognised striker, did not manage a shot on target in the first half.
It wasn’t until the closing stages that the next goal came, when Buendia scored from another good play by Villa.
Lucas Digne turned a cross into his own net to give Everton hope and take away Villa’s clean sheet, but it was the Toffees who held on and gained the three points.
West Ham missed several chances in the first half when Pablo Fornals hit the crossbar, followed by a goal being disallowed and Kurt Zouma’s header being cleared off the line.
Benrahma managed to find the net for Nottingham Forest putting them in front and the home side’s celebrations went wild.
West Ham had an opportunity to pull it back when Scott McKenna took a handball inside the box. Declan Rice’s penalty was saved by Dean Henderson to deny West Ham an equaliser and it was Forest who walked away with the three points and a victory to remember.
