Premier League: City Beat Brighton To Go Top, Sheffield Hold Chelsea

Manchester City temporarily went top of the Premier League table after they thrashed Brighton and Hove Albion 4-0 at the Etihad on Saturday.

A brace from Sergio Aguero (43rd, 55th minutes) and a goal each from Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva in the second and 79th minutes respectively, secured City’s third win of the season.

The win saw City climb to the top of the log on 10 points, but could drop if Liverpool, who play later in the day, beat Burnley.

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea missed the chance to record their second league win of the season after they were forced to a 2-2 draw by Sheffield United.

Tammy Abraham scored two goals in the 19th and 43rd minutes to put Chelsea 2-0 ahead.

Callum Robinson reduced the deficit in the 46th minute, before an own goal by Kurt Zouma made it 2-2 on 89 minutes.

The Blues are now ninth on five points on the league table.

And at the King Power Stadium, Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi returned to Leicester City’s line-up and helped them to a 3-1 home win against Bournemouth.

Jamie Vardy bagged a brace in the 12th and 73rd minutes while Youri Tielemans got Leicester’s other goal.

Bournemouth’s goal was scored by Callum Wilson in the 15th minute, just three minutes after Vardy’s opener for Leicester.

And in other results, Newcastle United were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Watford, West Ham United beat visiting Norwich City 2-0 and Crystal Palace pipped Aston Villa 1-0 at Selhurst Park.
