Impressive Chelsea move level with Reds

English Premier League

Chelsea maintained their impressive start to the Premier League season after cruising to a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.

Heung-min Son looked to put the host in front following their dismissal loss to Crystal Palace last Saturday, but stern piece of defending from the Blues repelled the Korean international.

Chelsea began to get in shape soon from the half-hour mark and inadvertently opened a chance for Kai Havertz following a loose ball, but the German nodded Cesar Azpilicueta’s cutback wide.

The host seemed all on to the breakthrough within minutes from a one-on-one by Son on the back of a pin-point through ball, but Arrizabalaga read the danger and parried.

After N’Golo Kante entered for Mason Mount, the Blues had the lead four minutes in the second half as Thiago Silva leaped over Dele Alli to turn home Marco Alonso’s corner-kick.

Alonso looked for one himself with a shot from an unmarked position late onwards after getting on the end of Azpilicueta’s ball, but Eric Dier covered ground to clear from the goal-line.

Chelsea did eventually land a double twelve minutes from resumption as Kante’s low rasping strike deflected off Dier before spinning against the inside post en-route to the net.

Hugo Lloris denied the Blues another goal, as a double save minutes to full-time parried Timo Werner’s one-on-one and the lively Azpilicueta’s effort across the face of the area.

In the end, Chelsea found a third goal at the death through Antonio Rudiger who ran into space to finish off Werner’s lay-off.

Manchester United moved level on points with Premier League leaders Liverpool after a dramatic 2-1 win over West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

Tomas Soucek came close to breaking the deadlock for West Ham in the 21st minute after pouncing on a rebound inside the box but his low drilled effort was repelled by the boot of goalkeeper David de Gea.

Bruno Fernandes was unlucky not to break the deadlock just before the half-hour mark with a sweet diagonal half-volley inside the box that was tipped into the post by shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianski.

David Moyes' charges eventually went ahead two minutes later after Said Benrahma fired a strike a goal outside the box that took a deflection off Varane and wrong-footed De Gea,

Cristiano Ronaldo levelled matters ten minutes before the half-time break with a close-range tap-in from a rebound off his own header that was parried back by Fabianski.

Man United almost had the perfect start in the second stanza after Ronaldo went through on goal two minutes from the half-time interval, but he was denied by the legs of Fabianski.

Solskjaer eventually made a double change on 71 minutes by bringing on Sancho in place of Greenwood for fresh legs and Jesse Lingard replaced Paul Pogba in a tactical switch.

Man United's changes gave them momentum and Lingard gave the visitors the lead in the last minute against his former side in the last minute with a sensational curling strike inside the box that found the top corner.

There was drama in stoppage time after West Ham were awarded a penalty for a handball by Luke Shaw inside the box but De Gea went the right way to keep out a penalty from Mark Noble, who had just come on to take that responsibility.
