English Premier League Week 3 Scores, Table Standings

LONDON, Sporting Alert – Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all claimed victories in Week 3 of the English Premier League. Here are the scores and table standings on Sunday, Aug. 28.

Heading into the international break, the three leading contenders for the title on the oddsmakers list remain 100-percent and lead the way in the Premier league standings.

Pre-season favourites Manchester City dominated West Ham United at Etihad Stadium to secure a 3-1 victory and moved back to the top of the points standings on goal difference.

A brace from a rejuvenated Raheem Sterling and a powerful header from Fernandinho secured the win for the Citizens, who continue to show signs of improvement under new manager Pep Guardiola.

A late strike from Marcus Rashford pushed Manchester United to a 1-0 victory over a stubborn Hull City at The KC Stadium on Saturday.

Rashford, coming on as a second-half substitute for Juan Mata, placed himself in an ideal position to poke home a cross from Wayne Rooney, two-minutes into injury time, and Mourinho was delighted with the effort.

“Marcus Rashford has a lot of chances waiting for him. When the team was chasing the ball against Leicester in the Community Shield and tonight, he made a difference for us,” Mourinho said after the win.

“He gives new problems to the opposition so I am really happy with him and the team. Even defensively, we controlled their counter attack.

“We want to be champions, we don’t want to start well, we want to finish well.”

The victory gave Jose Mourinho’s men their third successive win and nine points from as many available in the early standings.

Also on Saturday, goals from Eden Hazard and Willian in the first half and another in the second from Victor Moses carried Chelsea to a comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

It was also the third in succession for new Blues boss Antonio Conte, whose team sits second in the league standings on goal difference.

Scoring wins on Saturday as well were Arsenal, which eased to a 3-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road to reduce some of the pressure on manager Arsene Wenger, who has been heavily criticised by some of the club supporters.

Defending champions Leicester City secured a maiden win this season after edging Swansea City 2-1, despite the reported wantaway Riyad Mahrez missing a penalty in the second-half.

Leading striker Jamie Vardy and captain Wes Morgan scored the goals for Claudio Ranieri’s side.

In other results, Everton picked up a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Goodison Park, Liverpool and Tottenham finished 1-1 at White Hart Lane, Sunderland and Southampton finished 1-1 at St Mary’s, while Crystal Palace and Bournemouth also ended 1-1 at Selhurst Park.

On Sunday, West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough ended 0-0 at The Hawthorns.
