EPL results: What did we learn from the 3pm Premier League fixtures?


Palace secure second successive win as Villa‘s Trezeguet dismissed

Crystal Palace secured a second Premier League win of the season as Jordan Ayew hit the only goal of the game to down 10-man Aston Villa, who had a last-gasp equaliser controversially ruled out.

After securing a rare victory at Manchester United last weekend, the Eagles had just about enough to win 1-0 against a Villa side who played with a man short for over half an hour following the sending off of Trezeguet.


The visitors thought they had rescued a late point as substitute Henri Lansbury smashed home but referee Kevin Friend pulled play back and booked indignant Villa captain Jack Grealish for simulation.

Vardy brace takes Leicester to victory against Bournemouth

Jamie Vardy’s double sunk Bournemouth as Leicester sent out an early European warning.

The Foxes climbed to third in the Premier League as they continued their unbeaten start with a 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy scored in each half and set up Youri Tielemans just before the break with Brendan Rodgers’ side looking to gatecrash the top six this term.

England striker Callum Wilson’s first goal of the season had initially pulled Bournemouth level in the first half.

Tielemans also escaped a second-half red card after a VAR check when he went over the ball to catch Wilson on the ankle.

Watford get off the mark with away point at Newcastle

Defender Fabian Schar rescued a point for Newcastle as Watford finally opened their new Premier League account on Tyneside.

The Switzerland international cancelled out Will Hughes’ second-minute opener just before half-time to clinch a 1-1 draw between the sides occupying 19th and 20th positions in the table before kick-off.

That handed the Hornets a first point of the season after three successive defeats, but represented a disappointment for Steve Bruce’s side, who had gone into the game with high hopes of building upon last weekend’s fine win at Tottenham.

Sebastien Haller continued his goalscoring form as West Ham made it back-to-back Premier League wins with a 2-0 victory over Norwich at the London Stadium.

The French striker scored twice in the Hammers’ win at Watford last weekend and only had to wait until the 24th minute to strike again to put Manuel Pellegrini’s side ahead.

The hosts continued to dominate in the second half as Andriy Yarmolenko hit his first goal since September 2018, volleying past Tim Krul to give his side their first home win of the season.

Norwich slumped to their third defeat of their first league four matches and failed to score a goal for the first time in the Premier League this season.
