  4. What the papers say

    Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

    The Guardian: "The dawning of the age of Klopp was a fevered, concussive, inconclusive affair. As was always likely to be the case given that after a week in the job Klopp was essentially picking up by the scruff the cadaver of Brendan Rodgers’ old team and marching it around White Hart Lane in front of him."

    Daily Mail: There was at least the post-match press conference, which was less of an anti-climax. Jurgen Klopp continued to inhabit his persona of Germanic-Californian technology start-up innovator. White Hart Lane and English football was ‘cool,’ and he said of Dviock Origi: ‘We will have fun with this player, for sure,’ which is a thought that doesn’t obviously occur to you when watching Origi."

    Daily Telegraph: "Nobody wants to hear it, but it will take two years or more to raise the quality of this Liverpool squad to where it needs to be. But this was a “cool” enough beginning."

  5. "In football you need to be clinical"

    Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

    Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: "Both teams played with a very high tempo and it was an exciting game.

    "I am a little bit disappointed not to win because we created four good chances to score and the only clear one Liverpool had came when we were down to 10 men because Nacer Chadli was off the field getting treatment.

    "In football you need to be clinical. We weren't but I am still very happy with the performance."

  6. "Not my dream result"

    Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on his first game in charge of the Reds: "0-0 is not my dream result but it is OK.

    "I am happy because I saw many good things, in the first 20 minutes we were pressing and were very aggressive.

    "We will get stronger. We were a little bit nervous when we got the ball because the pulse was a little too high at this moment."

  7. Man of the match - Mousa Dembele

    Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

    BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty chose Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele as his stand-out performer at White Hart Lane, with the caveat that he does not produce that kind of display often enough.

    Sukhdeep Rehal: Players playing in their correct position made Liverpool like a proper team again..... Bit more quality needed in the final third which will hopefully come when Sturridge/Benteke return from injury. All in all, a good start for Klopp!

    Ben Wright Draw was deserved. 1st clean sheet in 9 for Liverpool, against the in form side, with injuries is outstanding for Klopp. And we now have 4 clean sheets, still joint best defence, haven't lost in the league since the opening day. Both sets of fans should be happy with this as they could be good springboard to reach something special.

    Jonnie Brooks: Decent start given his limited options at the moment. Spurs are in form so a point away can't be frowned at.

    West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Sunderland

    The Guardian: "That, Sam Allardyce, is the fine mess into which you have walked. This was a relatively tidy Sunderland performance and for a while they even looked like marking their new manager’s debut with their first clean sheet of the campaign, but then that costly hapless streak resurfaced and they found themselves in the familiar position of ending a match with no points."

    The Telegraph: "The half-time whistle brought a mixed reaction from the home crowd, with a few boos heard. The Sunderland contingent, on the other hand, sensed the arrival of a new manager might be the spark for an upturn in fortune. Their mood changed with Albion's gift goal and they created few openings thereafter, even after Allardyce introduced Danny Graham and Jermain Defoe."

  18. Manager reaction

    West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Sunderland

    West Bromwich Albion head coach Tony Pulis:

    "The win was more important than anything else today - the win and the clean sheet.

    "The first half wasn't brilliant but in the second half we were much better. We have had some tough games at home. We lost against Everton when we were 2-0 up, which was a kick in the stomach, so we needed that today.

    "It was probably a bonus for us that Sam has not had a lot of time with his players because of the international break. He will give it his best shot, as he always does."

  19. Manager reaction

    West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce:

    "We have had a point taken away from us today which wasn't our fault. In our position that's a hugely precious point, even at this stage of the season.

    "It's a big mistake by the referee. It was a clear foul in two areas: one, he [Berahino] has jumped backwards into our goalkeeper when he is not even looking at the ball. And two, he handled the ball in front of him to score.

    "We know we have to build from a solid base. What looked like a 0-0 would have been a good basis for us because the goals will come."

    Chelsea midfielder Willian was the Blues key contributor going forward today. As shown on the graphic below, he created four chances, one of which led to a goal (blue square). His pass success rate was 91%.

  32. What the papers say

    Chelsea 2-0 Aston Villa

    Daily Mirror: "Baba Rahman cost £21.7m from Ausburg and is the most unlike Mourinho full back you can imagine. This was his first Premier League start and it’s fair to say his game is about attack being the best form of defence. He was even undone by Aston Villa right back Alan Hutton on a few occasions."

    Guardian: The sense of crisis that lingered post-match swirled more intensely around the visitors whose manager, Tim Sherwood, had cut a helpless figure on the touchline.  Chelsea had always looked like a side who would eventually click into gear. There is too much quality in their ranks to anchor them in the bottom half for long. The same cannot be said of Villa.

    Birmingham Mail: Villa were undone by their own individual mistakes once again. Guzan’s error gifted Chelsea the lead when they really didn’t deserve it. The claret and blues had pushed and probed to get in front themselves and just when they were enjoying a spell of pressure they caved in. Sherwood set his team out to attack and the plan was working until Guzan’s mistake.

    The Spaniard was clearly determined to make up for lost time following his three-match ban for violent conduct and looked closer to the player of last season than the unfit one who started this campaign.

    "This was a performance to compensate for a lack of confidence and self-esteem. When confidence is not high you lose quality. Tactically we were very disciplined today, especially defensively.

As Manchester City's average positions show, Sterling (7) often ran clear of the Bournemouth defence and played in advance of Bony (14) for parts of the game.

    Manchester City 5-1 Bournemouth

    Manchester City manager Pellegrini on Raheem Sterling's first career hat-trick: "When we bought Raheem in the summer I said we are buying a 20-year-old who is very young and needs to improve. He is not a striker but he can improve his finishing and, today, he did." 

    "I am happy because we changed his position and played him in the middle, with Wilfried Bony in front of him. We felt it was better for him to be near Bony and also near the box. We also had to do something different because we were without Sergio Aguero and David Silva."

    Manchester City 5-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "It was a difficult afternoon for us. We made a really bad start and gifted them goals which is a recipe for disaster against such a quality team. 

    "Losing our keeper Artur Boruc just before kick-off was a big blow because he has done so well for us for a long time and he gives the back four a lot of confidence. 

    "There was a spell in the first half when the score was 3-1 where I thought we were on top but we conceded a crucial goal before half-time. That was a real killer blow in terms of our hopes of getting back into the game in the second half."

    It's harsh to say he was an oversight? He became a better player during his time at Wolfsburg.

    Garth Crooks

    Former Spurs striker on Final Score

    "Manchester City have stretched Bournemouth, made the pitch really big, and have played around and through them. The Cherries have been chasing shadows, and Bony and Sterling have been the major beneficiaries.

    "This has been an education, as City have an embarrassment of riches."

  100. Bournemouth naive in defence?

    Manchester City 5-1 Bournemouth

    There was slightly more action in Manchester City's defensive third than Bournemouth's, showing the Cherries commitment to attack. Given the scoreline, perhaps they should have spent more time defending?

  102. Was Sterling's first goal offside?

    Manchester City 5-1 Bournemouth

    Manchester City took the lead after seven minutes as Raheem Sterling (7) grabbed his first goal. But there was a suspicion of offside as Wilfried Bony (14) tapped it to him before he finished from close range.

    He looks off to me... Agree?

  106. 'A sad day for football'

    Everton 0-3 Manchester United

    Gary Lineker

    MOTD presenter since 1999

    "It’s a sad day for football people, not just Evertonians. I played for him for a year and you could see he was a great manager, there’s no question about that - the most successful in Everton’s history.

    "His attacking side of the 1980s took some stopping and it was a privilege for me to be involved in that, albeit for only one year. You could see the real strengths Howard had.

    "He liked to get the players out together, quite typically for a Chinese. He’d take them out, everyone would have loads to drink as they did in those days, including of course Howard. He evoked a real team spirit and a bonding among the players."

  108. What the papers say

    Everton 0-3 Man Utd

    The Guardian: On the evidence of this sluggish, laboured performance Everton do not even resemble the side that so confidently accounted for Chelsea last month. They created almost nothing, struggled even to retain possession at times, and only managed a serious attempt on goal right at the end of the first half.

    The Telegraph: United’s fans may well desire a return to the fluency and flair era of Sir Alex Ferguson but that will not happen any time soon. In the meantime, Van Gaal may wish to point to the Premier League table as evidence that his way can work and will work.

    Daily Mirror: We say it almost every week, but Van Gaal's side would look a lot more ordinary but for their goalkeeper David de Gea making huge saves at massive moments in the game. Here, an Everton side trailing 2-0 came sprinting out of the blocks for the second half, but were repelled by two incredible stops from the Spaniard.

  111. 'An inspiration'

    Everton 0-3 Manchester United

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez, on the news of Howard Kendall's death: “Straight away it was a shock and really sad news, clearly it is an emotional moment when you find that out. I think we reacted in the right way to do it, which is a real celebration of his career and what he gave to Everton, his success in becoming an iconic figure here. He will always be a great inspiration for any manager at this club."

    Lots of chat around Wayne Rooney's form at the moment, but how many records will he break?

    Antony Baker: Great to see Rooney back on the scoresheet. He will be United's all time goal scorer but Alan Shearer's record will never be beaten.

    Robert Riley Ruby Warburton: Rooney still won't get the recognition he deserves if he passes Shearer.

    Paul Pring: Very sad and very difficult, deserved what we got though, poor performance

    Howard Kendall

    First to Goodison, where the lead-up to the game was overshadowed by the news that legendary Everton boss Howard Kendall had passed away earlier on Saturday at the age of 69.

    A minute's applause was observed before kick-off and both teams wore black armbands as a tribute to the Englishman.

    Ahead of kick-off, manager Roberto Martinez called for his players to be "up to the level" of Kendall's side of the 1980s, which won two First Division titles.
