Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham all win, but Man United are beaten at West Ham

Here’s what happened in the 3pm kick-offs in the Premier League on Saturday, September 29

Manchester City 2-0 Brighton

Manchester City pressed their claims for a title defence with a 2-0 home win over Brighton. Raheem Sterling put the home side ahead after 29 minutes following a swift counter-attack, with Sergio Aguero wrapping up the points after 65 minutes.

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

England captain Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham won 2-0 at struggling Huddersfield. Kane headed the visitors in front on 25 minutes and added a second from the penalty spot after Florent Hadergjonaj was ruled to have pushed down Danny Rose.

Huddersfield forward Laurent Depoitre hit the crossbar just before the break, but the Terriers could not mount a recovery and remain bottom.

Arsenal 2-0 Watford

Arsenal left it late to maintain their winning run with a 2-0 victory over Watford at the Emirates Stadium. They made the breakthrough with nine minutes left when Craig Cathcart turned a cross from substitute Alex Iwobi into his own net.

Mesut Ozil slotted home a second just two minutes later to secure a seventh straight win in all competitions for Unai Emery’s improving side.

Wolves 2-0 Southampton

Wolves’ impressive return to the Premier League continued with a 2-0 home win over Southampton. Adama Traore set up fellow substitute Ivan Cavaleiro, who had just come on, to break the deadlock with 11 minutes left.

Jonny wrapped things up with a late second from close range.

Everton 3-0 Fulham

Everton produced a strong second half to win 3-0 at Fulham with two goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson. After Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon hit the crossbar, Everton midfielder Sigurdsson then also struck the woodwork with a penalty in the 52nd minute.

The Icelander, though, was on target four minutes later with a curling left-footed effort, before substitute Cenk Tosun headed in a second after 66 minutes. Sigurdsson added Everton’s third after 89 minutes.

Newcastle 0-2 Leicester

Newcastle’s wait for a victory goes on after Leicester won 2-0 at St James’ Park. The Foxes went in front on the half-hour through a penalty from Jamie Vardy, with Harry Maguire then heading in from a corner after 72 minutes.

West Ham 3-1 Manchester United (12:30pm kick-off)

West Ham turned up the heat on Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho with a 3-1 Premier League win at the London Stadium. After their midweek home penalty shoot-out defeat by Derby in the Carabao Cup, the Red Devils once again failed to produce the required performance.

Hosts West Ham went in front after just five minutes through Felipe Anderson, the Brazilian’s first goal since his big-money summer transfer from Lazio. An own goal from United defender Victor Lindelof doubled West Ham’s lead just before half-time.

Shortly after Paul Pogba was substituted, in the week he lost vice-captaincy duties at United, striker Marcus Rashford reduced the deficit. However, West Ham swiftly restored their two-goal advantage through Marko Arnautovic’s finish after 74 minutes as United equalled their worst start to a Premier League season.
