As Swansea City weren’t in Premier League action today, we provide a round-up of today’s results.

Former Swansea striker Wilfried Bony had talked this week about having the ‘worst year of my career’ after struggling to make much of an impact following his £25million move to the Etihad Stadium.

But the Manchester City striker will have been delighted to score twice today in a thumping 5-1 home win against newcomers AFC Bournemouth.

Raheem Sterling scored a hatrick, while Murray got a goal back for the visitors mid-way through the first half.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United kept up with the League leaders, both winning their games 3-0 to take their points tallies to 19, two behind City.

United impressed with a win away at Everton – who drop to 9th, while Arsenal beat Watford – with all of the Gunners’ goals coming in a 12-minute second half spell. Welsh international Aaron Ramsey netted his side’s third of the game in the 74th minute.

Jurgen Klopp’s debut as manager of Liverpool ended in a goalless draw at White Hart Lane, and yet again Spurs’ boss Pochettino believed his side should have beaten the Reds.

Chelsea got themselves a much needed, but expected home win against Aston Villa, as the pressure on boss Tim Sherwood is ever-growing, as his side sit in 18th place, 4 points behind Bournemouth.

Chelsea meanwhile move up to 11th, two points behind Liverpool, and a point ahead of the Swans who drop to 13th. As it stands, a Swansea win against Stoke City on Monday night would take them up into the top half of the table.

Crystal Palace suffered a surprising 3-1 home defeat against high-flying West Ham United. Lanzini and Payet scored in the last few minutes of the game to help their side get all three points which moves them into the top 4.

Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of Sunderland ended in a 1-0 defeat at West Brom, while Leicester City – yet again came back from 2 goals down to rescue a point at Southampton. Vardy scored both goals, including the equaliser in the 90th minute.

Sunday’s game sees Newcastle United host Norwich City at St James’ Park. Bottom side Newcastle United are in desperate need of some points as they’re still looking for their first win of the season under new manager Steve McLaren.
