Leeds beat woeful Watford for first PL win of the season

Leeds got their first Premier League win of the season, beating Watford 1-0 at Elland Road, after the visitors had a goal ruled out for a contentious foul. After a ninth-place finish in the last campaign, Leeds had found themselves in the bottom three early on this time around. They had never lost their opening seven games of a top-flight season, and the pressure for three points was on. But it was a dominant performance from the hosts, who looked to be getting back to their best, and they deservedly went ahead through the returning Diego Llorente (18) Watford looked lethargic and made numerous errors throughout, even without two of their three substitutions being made due to injury. They did find the net in the second half in their best five-minute spell, but Christian Kabase...

Lukaku and Kovacic take Chelsea to victory over Villa

Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic scored their first Stamford Bridge goals for Chelsea as the Blues beat Aston Villa 3-0 to move level on points with Manchester United at the top of the early Premier League table. On his second home debut for the club Lukaku was brilliantly clinical to finish after Kovacic's through ball on 15 minutes and, after the break, the Croatian pounced on a poor Tyrone Mings back pass (49) to net his own maiden home goal for the club. Villa had dominated in between those two goals, forcing Edouard Mendy into a string of fine first-half saves, while Ollie Watkins was denied by a crucial Thiago Silva block when he took it around the goalkeeper. However, after Mings' gift, the hosts - while still not at their best - found a measure of control and Lukaku stretche...

Villa defender Tyrone Mings planted a header wide from Douglas Luiz's cross when his dive should have at least tested Jordan Pickford in the Everton goal, before he later survived a VAR red card review for what appeared a studs-up challenge on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
