Leicester City 0-0 Burnley
Leicester City could not get the goals in their emotional return to King Power Stadium as they played to a goalless draw with Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
It was the Foxes’ first match at King Power Stadium since chairman and owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha died in a helicopter crash near the ground two weeks ago.
Fans and players paid tribute to the late Leicester owner before the match.
Southampton 1-1 Watford
Jose Holebas denied Southampton their second win of the season as he struck late for Watford in a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.
Manolo Gabbiadini opened the scoring for the Saints in the 20th minute but Holebas struck eight minutes before time for the Hornets to pile more pressure on the Southampton manager Mark Hughes.
Newcastle United 2-1 Bournemouth
Salomon Rondon’s brace earned Newcastle United their second straight Premier League victory in a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Rondon got the opener for Rafa Benitez’s charges in the seventh minute and made it 2-0 for United five minutes before the break and got his brace in the process. His first goals for Newcastle this season.
Jefferson Lerma pulled a goal back for the Cherries in the first half stoppages but it was not enough the hosts claimed all the three points winning two games in a row for the first time since April.
