Saturday English Premier League review

Chelsea extended their unbeaten run to seven games as they beat Newcastle United 2-0 at Saint James’ Park.

A first-half own-goal from Federico Fernandez and Tammy Abraham’s second-half goal following some great work from Timo Werner sealed second-place for the impressive Blues.

Goals in either half from Danny Welbeck and Solly March sealed a 2-1 away Brighton victory at a disappointing Aston Villa.

Villa suffered a setback inside the opening three minutes, Ross Barkley went off with an hamstring injury.

The hosts were uncharacteristically sluggish and paid for it with Welbeck capitalising on a loose ball to sprint clear of the backline and score his first Brighton Premier League goal.

Ezri Konsa pulled Villa level two minutes after the break but March had the most decisive moment of the game, curling home an impressive effort into the top corner beyond Emiliano Martinez.

Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester City 2-0 to go top of the English Premier League in a highly entertaining game.

Son Heung-min put Spurs ahead with their first shot of the game, although Ederson inexplicably came off his line, a poor decision judging by the Brazilian’s high standards.

City thought they had drawn level following Aymeric Laporte’s fine finish but after a VAR review, the goal was controversially ruled out for handball by Gabriel Jesus.

Substitute Giovani Lo Celso sealed the victory with a second goal and his first touch, 35 seconds after his introduction.

Manchester United finally earned a first home league win of the season thanks to a 1-0 home win against strugglers West Bromwich Albion.

Bruno Fernandes was the match-winner with a customary penalty, a retake after the impressive Sam Johnstone had saved the first effort but was clearly off his line.
