EPL ; City cruise against Bournemouth, Arsenal beat Hull

Manchester City continued their perfect start to the season and remained top of the Premier League table with a 4-0 win against Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring on 15 minutes with a well taken free kick, before Kelechi Iheanacho finished off a brilliant counter-attacking move in the 25th minute. Raheem Sterling was next to get his name on the scoresheet, after good work by De Bruyne and Iheanacho allowed the winger tap in, Ilkay Gundogan also marked his Premier League debut with a goal.

The game also saw late action as Nolito got sent off after an altercation with Adam Smith.

Arsenal got their third win on a trot after defeating Hull City 4-1 away from home.

Alexis Sanchez deflected Alex Iwobi’s shot goalwards in the 17th minute to open the scoring before Jake Livermore was dismissed for handball, but Sanchez saw the resulting penalty saved by Eldin Jakupovic. Theo Walcott added to Arsenal’s lead in the 55th minute, and although a Robert Snodgrass penalty gave Hull hope with 10 minutes remaining, but Sanchez and Granit Xhaka wrapped up a comfortable win for the Gunners with late strikes.

Club-record signing Islam Slimani got off the mark for Leicester City as they secured their second Premier League win of the season, beating Burnley 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes went ahead in first-half stoppage time through Slimani and the Algeria international increased their advantage three minutes after the restart before a Ben Mee own goal completed the victory.

West Ham United‘s problems increased following a 4-2 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

Two goals from Nacer Chadli, with Salomon Rondon and James McClean also getting on the scoresheet saw the Baggies bag four goals before West Ham pulled two back through a Michail Antonio header and a Manuel Lanzini penalty.
