English Premier League wrap

Premiership

Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0, with Eden Hazard slotting a penalty he earned before prolific hitman Diego Costa converted a pass from ex-Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge. It was the visitors' first loss of the Premier League campaign.

Manager Arsene Wenger notably shoved Blues counterpart Jose Mourinho on the touchline as their feud turned physical. Wenger refused to take a step back in the 20th minute after leaving his technical area following a tackle from Gary Cahill on Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United recorded back-to-back wins for the first time under Louis van Gaal as they edged Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

High-profile signing Falcao squandered a number of chances before netting with a poacher's effort in the 62nd minute. Earlier Steven Naismith's header cancelled out Angel Di Maria's tidy first-half opener for the Red Devils.

Everton will feel they should have earned a point, particularly as Leighton Baines had a penalty saved by David de Gea after Luke Shaw had clumsily hacked down Tony Hibbert.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino got the better of his former club Southampton as Spurs prevailed 1-0 at White Hart Lane.

The home side ended a four-match winless run in the League courtesy of Christian Eriksen's 20-yard strike.

West Ham brushed aside struggling QPR 2-0, with Diafra Sakho scoring his fifth goal in as many games for the Hammers.

Nedum Onuoha's own-goal gave the hosts an early lead before Sakho headed home a second shortly before the hour.

West Ham are now level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool, while Rangers head into the international break bottom of the table with just four points from their first seven games.
