Pedro also found his name in the score sheet after making the most of a David Fletcher mistake.

Manchester City thrash Crystal Palace 5-0

Manchester City eventually overpowered a Crystal Palace side who became the first team in English Football League history to start a season with six defeats and no goals.

The table leaders waited end of the first half to find a way past Palace.

Sterling made it 2-0 when he met a peach of a cross from Sane.

City have scored 29 league goals in eight matches and are now leading the table.

Manchester United wins away at Southampton 

Romelu Lukaku scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season to give Manchester United a hard-fought victory at Southampton.

Tottenham survives at Westham with 3-2 win

Harry Kane scored twice as 10-man Tottenham survived a late fightback from West Ham to move up to third in the Premier League.

Kane’s header and low strike gave the visitors a 2-0 half-time lead before midfielder Christian Eriksen fired home the third in the 60th minute.

Five minutes later Mexico forward Javier Hernandez nodded in from close range.
