30 goals were recorded in what was an exciting matchday four of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.
Arsenal maintained their perfect record as they came from a goal down to defeat Fulham 2-1 in a London derby at the Emirates.
Gabriel Magalhães atoned for his error which gifted Aleksandar Mitrovic the chance to open the scoring for Fulham on 56 minutes — as the Brazilian defender scored the winner with four minutes of normal time left after Martin Ødegaard had equalised for the Gunners with 64 minutes on the clock.
The win for Mikel Arteta’s team – in his 100th game as Arsenal manager – ensured his side remain top of the log.
Erling Haaland put on a show as he netted a hat-trick to help Manchester City also record a stellar comeback as they went from being two goals down against Crystal Palace to win 4-2 at the Etihad on Saturday.
A fourth minute own goal from John Stones helped Palace go in front and Joachim Andersen doubled their advantage on 21 minutes.
City fought back in the second half as Bernardo Silva pulled one back in the 53rd minute and it was a cue for some Norwegian magic.
Haaland netted in the 62nd, 70th and 81st minute to grab his first Premier League hat-trick in just four games already.
Liverpool equalled the joint-biggest win in Premier League history as they made light work of AFC Bournemouth, battering them 9-0 at Anfield.
Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino scored twice, with goals from Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Fabio Carvalho and an own goal from Chris Mempham helped the Reds to what was also their biggest triumph in the top-flight.
Chelsea battled valiantly with 10 men to a 2-1 win against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.
Conor Gallagher was sent off in the 28th minute after seeing a second yellow after receiving his first six minutes earlier, joining gaffer Thomas Tuchel, who was serving his one-match ban to sit out the game.
Chelsea, however, impressed as they raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Raheem Sterling’s goals on 47 and 63 minutes.
Harvey Barnes scored in the 66th minute to set-up a grandstand and nervy finish for Chelsea but the Blues held on for an important victory.
Tottenham Hotspur made a trip to City Ground to defeat Nottingham Forest 2-0 on Sunday.
Harry Kane put Spurs ahead with a smooth finish from a clever pass from Dejan Kulusevski inside five minutes.
The England captain could have doubled his tally but his penalty kick was saved by fellow country-man Dean Henderson in the 56th minute.
However, Henderson could not deny Spurs’ record goalscorer once again as Kane sealed the points with his second in the 81st minute.
Manchester United made it back-to-back wins under Erik ten Hag as they also ended their away woes by defeating Southampton by a lone goal at St. Mary’s.
Bruno Fernandes netted the only goal of the contest on 55 minutes to send the Red Devils into the top half of the standings.
West Ham United recorded their first win of the season with a 1-0 win at Aston Villa on Sunday.
Pablo Fornals’ goal in the 74th minute helped David Moyes’ side to their first points of the campaign.
Wolverhampton Wanderers could not hang on for their first win of the campaign as a late Allan Saint-Maximin stunner helped Newcastle United to a 1-1 draw at Molineux.
Ruben Neves had earlier broken the deadlock with a gem of a goal on 38 minutes for Bruno Lage’s team.
Brighton and Hove Albion ended Leeds United’s unbeaten start to the season thanks to Pascal Gross’ 66th minute goal at the American Express Community Stadium.
