Premier League Scores on Aug. 23: Week 3

LONDON, Sporting Alert – The English Premier League scores and results in Week 3 after the games played on Saturday and Sunday.

Manchester City delivered another impressive performance to beat Everton 2-0 and climb to the top of the standings with nine points after collecting three wins from their three games.

Goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri setup the win for the Citizens, who played solidly as a team overall on Sunday, although midfield playmaker David Silva again had an outstanding performance roaming around the pitch.

The Spanish international also hit the post in the second half after collecting a pass from Raheem Sterling inside the 18-yard box.

The victory sees Manchester City taking a two-point lead in the points standings, after Manchester United were held 0-0 at home by Newcastle United and Leicester City finished 1-1 with Tottenham at home as well.
