Saturday Premier League Round-Up


Alexis Sanchez scored twice and missed a penalty as Arsenal comfortably beat 10-man Hull City in the Premier League.

Sanchez put Arsenal ahead when he got a touch on Alex Iwobi’s shot, but failed from the spot after Jake Livermore handled and was sent off.

Theo Walcott added a second after the break before Robert Snodgrass pulled one back for the hosts with a penalty.

Sanchez stroked a third into an empty net before Granit Xhaka’s spectacular shot rounded off the scoring.

Meanwhile, over at Manchester while the city is blue, they didn’t suprise anyone with their straight win against struggling Bournemouth.

A scintillating Manchester City made it eight wins out of eight in all competitions this season as they easily beat Bournemouth at Etihad Stadium.

Kevin de Bruyne put the league leaders in front with a low free-kick under the wall after a Jack Wilshere foul.

City were dominant and two clinical counter-attacks led to Kelechi Iheanacho and Raheem Sterling tap-ins.

Ilkay Gundogan calmly slotted in a fourth but City had Nolito sent off late on for an attempted head-butt.

The Spaniard was involved in a clash with Adam Smith and, while any contact with his head looked slight, referee Jon Moss had little option but to dismiss the winger.


Leicester City’s record signing Islam Slimani marked his Premier League debut with two goals as the champions outclassed Burnley.

The striker opened the scoring in the last minute of the first half with a header from Christian Fuchs’ free-kick.

He made it two just after the restart with another header and Ben Mee’s own goal completed the scoring.

The win capped off a great week for the Foxes, who also won 3-0 at club brugg in the Champions League on Wednesday.


Everton extended their winning run to four games in the Premier League with a victory over Middlesbrough that sent them second in the table.

A Maarten Stekelenburg own goal, under pressure from Alvaro Negredo, put the visitors ahead at Goodison Park.

But Gareth Barry levelled on his 600th top-flight appearance following a Kevin Mirallas corner three minutes later.

Seamus Coleman’s smart finish and a deft Romelu Lukaku touch then wrapped up the points for Everton by half-time.

Both sides threatened little after the break, with Middlesbrough unable to trouble the Toffees and the hosts happy to maintain their unbeaten start.

That record means boss Ronald Koeman, whose side drew on the first day with Tottenham, has enjoyed the best opening five-game spell of any Everton manager in the Premier League.
