Arsenal steady ship, Chelsea earn consecutive wins and the rest of today's Premier League action

ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE SCORED his second Premier League goal as Arsenal eased pressure around the Emirates for another week at least with a dominant 3-0 win against struggling Bournemouth.

Danny Welbeck was in inspired form as he bagged a brace and grabbed an assist during the win, the three points easing tensions surrounding the club following a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile Chelsea secured back-to-back Premier League wins today with a 2-1 victory against Craig Shakespeare’s Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Eden Hazard returned to the Blues’ starting lineup for the first time this season as goals from Ngolo Kante and a third of the campaign for Spanish international Alvaro Morata pushed the champions into third.

Brighton earned their first ever win in the Premier League on Saturday. Chris Hughton’s side had experienced the rough and tumble of the English top tier with back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Leicester during their opening set of fixtures.

But a double from Pascal Gross on top of a third from Tommer Hemed saw the Premier League debutants surge into a three goal lead against Tony Pulis’ West Brom.

Not even a late James Morrison consolation for the Baggies could dampen moods following a historic 3-1 win for a side playing in the top tier for the first time in 34 years.

Elsewhere Southampton earned their first defeat of the season, falling 2-0 at home to Watford, who rise to fourth, while Tottenham stormed to a 3-0 hammering of Everton at Goodison Park — Harry Kane recording his 100th Premier League goal.

In the day’s early kick-off Manchester City matched Jurgen Klopp’s worst ever defeat in management, beating 10-man Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad.

Sergio Aguero grabbed the first before braces each for Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane compounded a miserable afternoon for the Reds, who also had winger Sadio Mane sent off for a high foot on goalkeeper Ederson.
