Prem Recap: Musa Grabs First Goal For Foxes; Gunners Frustrated By 'Boro

Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur (0-0)
Tottenham missed a great chance to secure top position in the Premier League with a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
Tottenham Failed To Go Top
Spurs would look desperately to get a goal for the winner but a resilient Bournemouth side proved difficult for them. 

The major talking points of the game would be Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko escaping red cards after the former was not shown a second yellow for a lunge on Cherries’ Dan Gosling and the latter for an elbow towards Harry Artur. 

It is expected the French international would receive a retrospective suspension. Spurs face Liverpool next week at Anfield.

Arsenal vs Middlesbrough (0-0)
Arsenal failed to beat visitors Middlesbrough and put pressure on league leaders Man City. 
Ozil left frustrated after a poor showing by the Gunners standard 
Middlesbrough missed various chances throughout the course of the first half to take the lead with Ramirez being a handful for the Gunners even with Arsenal dominating possessions in margins as high as 87-13%.
Gaston Ramirez Almost Put Boro Ahead In The First Half
Arsenal would be unable to make the possession count with Boro proving a difficult side to crack. 

Middlesbrough could have snatched a win late at the game with the away side piling pressure on the counter attack. 

The Gunners would think they have snatched all three points at the death but would have an Ozil tap in ruled out with the flag raised. With a point Arsenal go top of the league with City yet to play.

Hull City vs Stoke City (0-2)
Stoke City went into the game against Hull City on a bit of high after picking up such much needed points before this game meanwhile the Tigers would be wondering how they can pick up form again.
Shaqiri Wheels In Celebration For Stoke City
Xherdan Shaqiri would be the man on fire today firing a belter from 23-yards to open the scoring for Stoke City. The ex-Bayern winger would grab his second with a nice taken freekick from the edge of the area shortly after the interval.

Burnley vs Everton (2-1)
Burnley hosted the Blue team from Merseyside to their grounds with Everton on good form and hoping to get three points after their last game against Man City.
Sam Vokes Pounces On A Stekelenburg Error To Hand Burnley The Lead
Against the run of play, Burnley would go ahead before the break thanks to a Maarten Stekelenburg error. The Dutch goalie, who put on a heroic display in the last game, pushed a tame shot that seemed to be heading wide into the path of Sam Vokes who was more than happy to tap it in. 

Yannick Bolasie would grab in an equalizer before the half-hour mark courtesy of a Lukaku assist who fired a low shot past Tom Heaton. 
Burnley’s resilient display would be rewarded after Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s speculative effort hit the bar allowing Scott Arfield to fire home the rebound to shock Everton in the dying minutes.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace (3-1)
3 wins from 3 games in their Champions League debut campaign, Leicester City returned home to play Crystal Palace after having a disappointing outing away to Chelsea. 

Jamie Vardy would be dropped to the bench for this encounter with Slimani and Musa starting.
A Clearly Delighted Ahmed Musa Grabs His First Goal For The Foxes
Ahmed Musa would grab his first goal for the Foxes with a nice shot outside the 18 before the break with Shinji Okazaki doubling their lead after the break with a rebound to get his first goal since March of 2015. 

Christian Fuchs would add the icing on the cake with a goal-of-the-season contender, a screamer from way out that went flying past bodies and into the back of the net. 

Yohann Cabaye would steer home a consolation goal late on, his first in 24 league appearances.

West Ham vs Sunderland (1-0)
Sunderland are still looking for their first win of the new season, and this weekend the opponents are fellow strugglers West Ham. 

With just two points on the board from eight games so far, David Moyes' side are unsurprisingly bottom of the Premier League table and are already four points adrift of the places above the relegation zone.
Winston Reid Gives West Ham Three Points Against Sunderland
The Black Cats seemed to be holding out for a draw but would be dealt a cruel blow after Winston Reid would fire in a late winner after a clearance from a corner would find the player on the edge of the box leaving the Black Cats yet to find a win in the Premier League this season. 

Swansea vs Watford (0-0)
Swansea manager Bob Bradley celebrated his first Premier League point since taking over in charge at the Liberty Stadium. 

But it could so easily have been three had the Swans have found their shooting boots in the second half. Although Watford were happy to defend deep and play on the counter attack, they were almost made to pay in the final throes.
Bradley Grabs His First Point As Swansea Boss In The Premier League
Unfortunately for Bradley, Gylfi Sigurdsson missed two golden chances to win the game and present Swansea with only their second win of the season. 

Swansea had two further opportunities to win it. Unfortunately, it was not to be and although it was a first point in five league games, it will be seen as two points lost

Liverpool vs West Brom (2-1)
Liverpool survived a late scare to beat West Brom 2-1 thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.
Having dominated proceedings from the first whistle at Anfield the Reds were unfortunate not to be further ahead when Gareth McAuley took advantage at a late corner and a 2-1 scoreline was not quite enough to topple Arsenal at the summit.

Yet there was much to love about the Reds here, not least in the first half when Coutinho dummied brilliantly to pave the way for Mane’s 20th-minute opener and produced a neat turn and finish after his team-mate repaid the favour.
They could, and should, have won by a more handsome margin and one clean sheet in nine matches tells its own tale.
