Premier League results: Man City back to the top, Newcastle go bottom

Riyad Mahrez scored the goal of the afternoon with a brilliant curling effort against Burnley

Defending champions Manchester City moved two points clear at the the top of the Premier League after marking the return from the international break with an emphatic 5-0 win over Burnley.

Joe Hart made some fine saves on his return to the club, but in the end the Clarets had no answer. Pep Guardiola’s side fired in goals from Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane to see off Sean Dyche’s men.

City are above Chelsea, who needed a 96th-minute equaliser to take a point from Manchester United in the day’s early kick-off.

The 2-2 draw was somewhat overshadowed by a late bust-up involving United manager Jose Mourinho – who says “the story is over” after the Chelsea staff apologised to him.

Tottenham continued their best start to a Premier League season by beating West Ham 1-0. Spurs are in third, a point above Liverpool, who face Huddersfield in the 17:30 BST kick-off.

At the foot of the table, Newcastle slipped to the bottom after a 1-0 home defeat by Brighton, with Neil Warnock’s Cardiff picking up their first win in the top flight – 4-2 at home against Fulham.

Watford moved above Wolves and in to seventh place with an excellent 2-0 win at Molineux, scoring twice in 58 seconds, while Bournemouth and Southampton played out a 0-0 draw.
