That's a wrap

That's all from us today - join Chris Osborne here for the second half of the Liverpool v Leicester game. 

'I'm there in the dug-out'

Burnley 1-1 Hull City

Hull City

Hull City caretaker boss Mike Phelan: "We suffered in the last minute in the last game (letting in a late goal against Manchester United). 

"Credit to us as we kept going. The players did what we asked of them today." 

On being appointed on a full-time basis, he added: "I'm there in the dug-out. I'm kicking every ball with the players and it is a joy."

'The reality of football'

Burnley 1-1 Hull City


Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "I was pleased with our performance. We started a bit edgy but built into the game.

"It's the way it goes. It is the reality of football (letting in a late goal). It was a game of few chances and cagey. 

"He (Steven Defour) was as cheap as chips - have you not seen what is happening in the Premier League? He is a fine player."


Liverpool 2-1 Leicester

'Bravo let the Red Devils back into it'

Man Utd 1-2 Man City

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker, 6-0-6 on BBC Radio 5 live

Manchester City played United off the park, though a clanger from Claudio Bravo let the Red Devils back into it. And should Bravo also have conceded a penalty? I think the keeper was lucky.

GOAL - Liverpool 2-1 Leicester

Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy gets a tap-in at the Kop End after a hilariously bad piece of play from Lucas. He played a one-two with Simon Mignolet and then passed it straight to Vardy.

Wilson picked it

Bournemouth 1-0 West Brom

Callum Wilson scored his first Premier League goal since September 19 2015 (vs Sunderland).

Despite not scoring in almost one year, Wilson is still the Cherries’ second highest goalscorer in the Premier League (6, behind Josh King’s 7).

GOAL - Liverpool 2-0 Leicester

Sadio Mane

I think Leicester are concentrating on the league. The Champions League.

The Foxes are all at sea as Daniel Sturridge backheels into the path of Sadio Mane, who scores. Lovely goal.

Folllow that game properly here. 

Penalty points

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton

The Gunners have already won more Premier League penalties in 2016-17 (3) than they did in the whole of 2015-16 (2).

Laurent Koscielny became the fifth Arsenal player to score a Premier League goal on their birthday (after Paul Merson, Robert Pires, Yossi Benayoun and Santi Cazorla).

I really like it Gav, though it has got a mixed reception from what I can see. All change is difficult of course...

'People like to see their managers showing passion'

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Stoke manager Mark Hughes on Sports Report details being sent off by referee Anthony Taylor: "I reacted to what I thought were a couple of poor decisions that went against us. I reacted wrongly and got sent off, but the bloke who sent me off didn't know where I should go! So I just needed a little help leaving. Hey-ho... 

"I think one of my problems was that I had left my technical area. I didn't realise I had done. It's another directive to referees - it's to do with how the Premier League is perceived globally. But we also hear how people like to see their managers showing passion. But you have to show control and I didn't."

GOAL - Liverpool 1-0 Leicester

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool take the early lead at Anfield as Roberto Firmino runs through to slot home at the Anfield Road end.

'Everyone is telling me it was a penalty'

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton


A buoyant Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger: "It is a relief, because we missed many chances and they had one or two opportunities having thrown everything forward.

"Honestly, everyone is telling me it was a penalty, but I've not yet seen it again. 

"There was a long delay before Santi Cazorla took the penalty - he did very well to score because he felt a heavy mental weight for the team. He played very well, because he helped us get back into the game after we started not fluent and not pacey. 

"I also give Laurent Koscielny a lot of credit - he came back from Russia on Thursday and today he scored when we were 1-0 down. Fantastic."

'I kept calm'

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton


Arsenal penalty taker Santi Cazorla: "I had a lot of time to think about where to shoot my penalty, but I kept calm. I thought if I shot down the middle the keeper might go to one side. I have no idea if it was a foul."

'Sending off my fault'

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "The second half wasn't the level we needed to get to. We started brightly with good intent but the goal knocked us back on our heels. At half time we were very positive but we need to be better when we are chasing games.

"The sending off, that's my fault. I came out of my technical area, I wasn't happy, I felt the officials missed two decisions. I was diappointed but I am disappointed with my reaction. It hasn't been a great day but we can pick ourselves up. 

"My dismissal made no difference to our performance in the second half. We need to be better.

"Next week we play Sunday and maybe that extra day will help."


Liverpool 0-0 Leicester

We are up and running at Anfield, with a new camera angle to go with their new stand.

Berahino situation has been difficult - Pulis

Bournemouth 1-0 West Brom

Saido Berahino

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has been talking about striker Saido Berahino: "For over a season Saido has been wrapped up in where he’s going and he’s playing in the top league in the world. You have to be mentally prepared, you can’t just switch it on and off and he needs to understand that. 

"In the 20 months I’ve been here he was a talisman for the first six months but then we’ve lost him for the last year. It’s been difficult. 

"It’s been an interesting club to manage for me, the way it’s run is different, but also dealing with a player that has for two thirds of that period not doing really what he should be has been difficult."

We are still waiting for Mark Hughes to appear in front of the cameras after his earlier sending-off. Fuming...

'We have to learn'

Middlesbrough 1-2 Crystal Palace

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka: "I think it was a very good game and it was difficult because we have lost when we were in a good position. When you lose a game through mistakes it is difficult, but we have to think about the future and learn. We have to keep going.

"All of us have learned we can't drop our intensity in the Premier League, we have to play always in the same style. We had a lot of chances in the second half and if we had played the first half the same way we would have won the game.

"We have to keep going. The club has done an amazing job building this squad, I am really pleased with them. We can't drive ourselves crazy because we are in a good position."

'I want to re-kick my career'

Bournemouth 1-0 West Brom

Bournemouth's Jack Wilshere: "It was a good win for us and it was good for me to come on and get my first minutes and get used to how the lads play.

"I spoke with the manager during the week and he’s got a plan for me so I was happy to be on the bench. 

"My biggest goal is to get as many games as possible, if there is a question mark about me I know that it’s my fitness, so I hope to get as many minutes in, prove everyone wrong and re-kick my career."

Cramped for space

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton

It was a familiar story for Arsenal against Southampton today. Plenty of possession and their players largely camped in the Saints half...

Average player position

But of their 17 shots at goal only two were on target - the two from which they scored (one of which was a penalty). Of those shots, lone striker Lucas Perez managed one.

Never mind, though, they won.

Arsenal shots

'Both players went to play the ball'

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton


Claude Puel, the Southampton manager, is unhappy about the late penalty awarded to Arsenal: "It's very hard for my players, a big disappointment. For me, with the penalty both players went to play the ball - it's very hard to take. 

"Very disappointing considering all the work. We could have won that game."

'Zaha would cost £50m'

Middlesbrough 1-2 Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "The first 20 minutes were important for us that we built on the Bournemouth performance and we were terrific in that period, we deserved the lead.

"We should have got a third goal, we had a couple of big chances. You can't control a whole Premier League game and we had to really hold on towards the end.

"If we do that for 38 games we'll go OK. We have some big players back at the ranch and hopefully we can get them fit.

"I thought Wilf (Zaha) was terrific and he deserved the assist and the goal. 

"I don't think he was as close as people think (to leaving) l because there wasn't about £50m on the table. He showed qualities, offensively and defensively."

'Wilshere has given everyone a lift'

Bournemouth 1-0 West Brom

More from Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "We were very close to picking Jack Wilshere, but he made a real impact when he came on. I was just concerned at his ability to play as long as we needed him to if he started. 

"It was quite obvious to me that he will do great things for this team. 

"He’s given everyone a lift just because of his name, his quality can only rub off on the other players and boost them."

'Liverpool's season hasn't really got going'

Liverpool v Leicester City (17:30 BST)

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton and Sunderland winger on Final Score

Liverpool are one of only two sides who beat Leicester last season. But the Reds need to kick on because, after that opening day win over Arsenal, their season hasn't really got going. 

The game tonight could suit Leicester, because Liverpool do press. Although I think top six is the best the Foxes can hope for this season.

Howe 'really pleased' for Wilson

Bournemouth 1-0 West Brom

Callum Wilson

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "It’s a massive day for us. The first half we were completely dominant. 

"There’s such small margins between teams at this level, we had to be very patient, but it was a great goal by Callum Wilson.

"I’m really pleased for him, players go through highs and lows, he’s had a severe knock with his injury but he always shows enthusiasm and brightness and you could see from his celebration how much this meant to him."

'The perfect result'

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "I'm very pleased. What was most important that we start a very difficult run of seven games in 20 matches with a win. It was the perfect result for us."

Liverpool v Leicester (17:30 BST)

This page is the place to stay for all of the reaction from the 15:00 BST games - but if it's minute-by-minute coverage from Anfield that you want then head over here.

Bell saves three penalties for Dundee United

We told you at half-time that Dundee United keeper Cammy Bell had saved three first-half penalties (from three different takers) at Dunfermline.

Sadly the hosts did not get any more penalties in the second half to give him a chance to extend that run.

Bell's side, who ended up with 10 men, won the Scottish Championship match 3-1.

Player reaction

Middlesbrough 1-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke scored his first goal for the club before being replaced by younger brother Jonathan, but the Belgium international said it was not only a great day for the Benteke family.

"I think it's fantastic for the team," he said. "It was a massive game for us, but today we did the job. It is the beauty of the Premier League. Every game is really hard, but I think we deserved to win."

Player reaction

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Tottenham scorer Harry Kane: "It is not an easy place to come but to win 4-0 here last year and today made it look easier than it is. I don't think we started that well but then we punished them when we needed to."

Son Heung-min, who scored twice: "It is unbelievable to win at Stoke away. we had a great game and deserved to win. Both of my goals gave me pleasure because it is my first game of the season."

Cameron Johnson: THANK YOU SNODGRASS!!!

Loudly Curious: West Ham really are determined to be the court jesters of the premier league this season it seems.

Do you trust this man?

Liverpool v Leicester (17:30 BST)

Mamadou Sakho

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he has no problem with Mamadou Sakho but the defender has to regain fitness to stand a chance of a first-team return.

France international Sakho, 26, had a doping case against him dismissed by Uefa in July.

He was then sent home from the club's pre-season tour in the United States after being late three times and also told he could leave the club on loan.

"It is not a problem. He doesn't have to gain my trust," said Klopp.

Team news

Liverpool v Leicester (17:30 BST)

Liv XI

The big news for Liverpool is that centre-half Dejan Lovren has a knock to the head, which means Lucas will be playing in the middle of defence.

Daniel Sturridge makes his second start of the season up front and new keeper Lorius Karius is on the bench after a hand injury.

Philippe Coutinho drops to the bench.

Subs: Karius, Klavan, Moreno, Stewart, Grujic, Coutinho, Origi

Lei XI

No changes for Leicester from the 2-1 win over Swansea a couple of weeks back.

The most notable omission from their line-up is new record signing Islam Slimani, who isn't even on the bench.

Subs: Hernandez, Chilwell, Musa, King, Zieler, Gray, Ulloa  

'A Premier League classic'

West Ham 2-4 Watford

We've seen a Premier League classic. Even when they were two goals up Watford kept creating goalscoring opportunities. West Ham boss Slaven Bilic must be fuming...
