    Chelsea came from behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season and stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points.

    Goals from Gary Cahill after 14 minutes - awarded after the Goal Decision System proved the ball had crossed the line - and Diego Costa's 10th of the season after 67 minutes gave Chelsea the points after Emre Can scored his first goal for Liverpool to put them ahead after nine minutes.

    Later, Juan Mata came on as a substitute to score in the 67th minute and give Manchester United a much-needed 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

    Two goals from Sergio Aguero earned Manchester City a point in a 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

    Shane Long scored a brace in five minute to give Southampton a hard-fought 2-0 victory against Leicester and help them record their best start in the top-flight football.
