Manchester City maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a 2-0 win at Leicester.

Gabriel Jesus’ 10th goal of the campaign in all competitions put the league leaders in front on the stroke of half-time following a wonderful team move.

Kevin De Bruyne then added a second with a rising left-footed effort from 20 yards in the 49th minute after a swift counter-attack.

Pep Guardiola’s side are now unbeaten in 24 matches in all competitions after picking up their 16th consecutive victory – a record for an English side.

Arsenal proved they are still a force to be reckoned with by blowing away Tottenham in a pulsating north London derby.

Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez secured the Gunners a dominant 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium. The result means Arsenal move just one point behind Tottenham.

There was a hint of fortune about each of Arsenal’s first-half goals. Mustafi’s header came after referee Mike Dean had awarded a dubious free-kick for a foul on Sanchez while Alexandre Lacazette was just offside in the build-up to their second.

But few could argue with the result as Arsene Wenger’s side beat Tottenham at their own game, showing themselves faster, stronger and hungrier than their opponents in every department.

Third-placed Chelsea ran out easy 4-0 winners against West Brom to increase the pressure on Baggies boss Tony Pulis.

Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso put Chelsea in command by half-time before Hazard added his second just past the hour mark.

Chelsea, who are a point behind United, condemned West Brom to a 10th Premier League game without a win.

Mohamed Salah continued his fine form as Liverpool won 3-0 against Southampton at Anfield.

The focus in prematch had been on the return of Sadio Mane, but Salah scored two first-half goals to take his tally for the season to 14 in all competitions.

Philippe Coutinho rounded off the victory in the 68th minute, scoring from a rebound after a Roberto Firmino shot was parried.
