Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Abel Hernandez with Premier League goals
Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Abel Hernandez were all on the scoresheet as their teams continued their 100% records.
Sergio Aguero followed his midweek hat-trick with a double today in their 4-1 away win against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.
City took the lead when Aguero banished his memory of his two midweek penalty misses by calmly scoring from the spot.
His second was header from Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick before Bojan pulled one back with a penalty.
Substitute Nolito came on to score two to give Pep Guardiola his second league win.
Diego Costa got the winner for the second game in the row as Chelsea came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road.
The Hornets had taken the lead through Etienne Capoue in the 56th minute and the hosts looked comfortable but as soon as Blues’ substitute Michy Batshuayi equalised it looked like there would only be one winner!
It was the Belgian’s first goal since his £33 million move in the summer.
Costa collected substitute Cesc Fabregas’ pass to beat Heurelho Gomes with just three minutes to go.
The win means Antonio Conte keeps his 100% start to the season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed his class again with his double against Southampton on Friday night’s 2-0 win at Old Trafford.
It was the Swede’s first competitive game the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ and he didn’t disappoint!
His first was a headed goal from a Wayne Rooney cross and his second was from the spot after Jordy Clasie had tripped Luke Shaw.
Abel Hernandez scored a late goal to give Hull a 2-0 win against Swansea – it means that to everyone’s surprise they have won two out of two including an opening day win against Premier League Champions Leicester City.
The Swans looked the stronger team in the first half with Gylfi Sigurdsson hitting the bar but the promoted team could have had a penalty when it looked like Robert Snodgrass had been fouled in the box.
But just after half-time it was the away team who took the lead through substitute Shaun Maloney.
It was an excellent result considering how few players Hull have available and that they still haven’t got a permanent manager.
