Huge result not just for the points. This team under Nuno is a young, talented and full of character. That hasn’t shown the last few games. Kyle: Its simplistic in a way but if Hazard isn’t on top form then Chelsea do struggle to score goals. Morata and Giroud don’t score anywhere near enough and Willian and Pedro for all the ability they have they should chip in with more goals.Posted at 10:2810:28Hasenhuttl’s tough taskTottenham Hotspur 3-1 SouthamptonSouthampton are currently on their longest winless run in all competitions since October 1998 with seven draws and six losses from their last 13 games.It is a big task for new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl who we will be hearing from later today but high up on his to-do list will be sorting out the defensive problems for the Saints.They have now conceded 29 goals in the league this season and have the fourth worst defensive record.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 10:2010:20″I’m happy with the three points”Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 SouthamptonFor Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino it was a case of job well done for his side…Video contentVideo caption: Mauricio Pochettino pleased with ‘job done’ against SaintsMauricio Pochettino pleased with ‘job done’ against SaintsPosted at 10:1310:13Spurs get past struggling SouthamptonTottenham Hotspur 3-1 SouthamptonNext stop Wembley and Spurs are up to third in the table after goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min helped them to a 3-1 win over Southampton.Charlie Austin’s injury-time effort was little consolation for the visitors in a game which was played in front of only 33,012 spectators.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 10:0610:06Clement sacked by ReadingNews from the Championship where Reading are looking for a new manager after sacking Paul Clement.He leaves them in 21rd place, just above the relegation zone on goal difference and comes after he also had disappointing spells with Derby and Swansea.Clement joined the Royals in March after the departure of Jaap Stam.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 10:0110:01″You’ve got to challenge”Burnley 1-3 LiverpoolUnsurprisingly, Burnley manager Sean Dyche, who had a bit of an exchange of views with Klopp at the end of the game said his side produced some “excellent” challenges.”I thought some of the timing of the challenges were superb. That’s part of that front-foot mentality,” he said.”You’ve got to win the ball, you’ve got to challenge against these boys.”You’ve got to put a marker on the game – not only with good tackles, but also with good play.”Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:519:51Klopp unhappy at BurnleyLiverpool’s England defender Joe Gomez damaged his ankle in a challenge with Burnley’s Ben Mee during the game and Burnley’s somewhat robust approach was criticised by Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.Video contentVideo caption: Burnley 1-3 Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp criticises Burnley tackling after Reds comebackBurnley 1-3 Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp criticises Burnley tackling after Reds comebackPosted at 9:429:42Liverpool march onBurnley 1-3 LiverpoolOn to Turf Moor and substitute Roberto Firmino scored with his first touch as Liverpool came from behind to beat struggling Burnley and stay in touch with leaders Manchester City.Jack Cork gave the hosts a surprise lead after Alisson could not gather the ball following a corner but Jurgen Klopp’s side hit back with goals from James Milner, Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.It means Liverpool are two points behind Pep Guardiola’s side after 15 games and have made the best start to a season in the club’s 126-year history.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:329:32Gambling firms agree advertising banAway from last night’s action for a moment to bring you the news that Britain’s biggest gambling companies have voluntarily agreed to a “whistle-to-whistle” television advertising ban.The Remote Gambling Association (RGA), which includes Bet365, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, has struck a deal to stop adverts during live sports broadcasts.It follows political pressure about the amount of betting advertising on TV.You can read more here.BBCCopyright: BBCPosted at 9:279:27Get Involved#bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)Earlier we were asking you about Chelsea’s performance at Wolves…Finkelstein: Wolves deserved the win and ran Chelsea ragged at times. Jiménez and Jota scored two good goals as Wolves locked up shop in the second half. Another defeat for Chelsea away from home. Defensively they have been found out. Why does Sarri persist playing Kante out of position given he is the key player in midfield.foreverblue: Life long Blues fan, but until we buy a decent striker and a quality centre-back to play alongside Rudiger we are going to struggle.Morata seems completely disinterested and Giroud just doesn’t score enough goals.Luiz or Christensen are not the answer at the back, nor is the overpriced Kepa in goal. And finally Sarri please play Kante in his preferred (and better) position .Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:209:20Fellaini turns from sinned against to sinnerManchester United 2-2 ArsenalIt looks like Marouane Fellaini might not be coping well with his new hairdo.The Belgian had his flowing locks trimmed dramatically last month, but he seems to have some sort of hair envy for those who have not succumbed to the scissors.During last night’s match against Arsenal he conceded a free kick when he pulled the hair (yes, really) of Matteo Guendouzi.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:129:12Fury wants Old Trafford rematchManchester United 2-2 ArsenalAmong those in attendance at Old Trafford last night was boxer Tyson Fury who wants his WBC heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder to take place at the ground.The 30-year-old Manchester-born fighter, was awarded a controversial draw after his bout with champion Wilder in Los Angeles on Saturday.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:079:07Injury woe for HoldingManchester United 2-2 ArsenalThere was one note of worry for Arsenal last night with defender Rob Holding taken off on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury following a collision with Marcus Rashford nine minutes before half-time.Emery said afterwards that doctors think it could be a big injury which would be a big blow for the 23-year-old.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 9:009:00″This point is good”Manchester United 2-2 ArsenalMourinho’s opposite number Unai Emery admitted he was proud of his side’s performance.”I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first,” he said. “We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.”We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances.”We perhaps lost a bit of control there but we created lots of chances after 2-2 and I am very proud of our performance. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good.”Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:538:53″We are not consistent and uniform”Manchester United 2-2 ArsenalAfterwards, United manager Jose Mourinho, who hasn’t been slow to criticise his players this season, praised his side’s spirit.”As always we made mistakes and we paid for the mistakes,” he said.”Today was more the same, but with great spirit and people ready to have a go and fight hard. It was a credit to the team. The spirit was Manchester United level but we miss certain qualities.”I have to disagree with people who try to compare this to teams of Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Nemanja Vidic. Give us a break and time. I am happy with the soul and heart, but we are not consistent and uniform.”Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:448:44Speedy LingardManchester United 2-2 ArsenalWe knew it was quick but Jesse Lingard’s second half equaliser for Manchester United came 74 seconds after Arsenal had retaken a 2-1 lead, and just 13 seconds after restarting the game from kick-off.Jose Mourinho has only lost one of his 16 games against Arsenal in the Premier League (winning seven and drawing eight) and remains unbeaten in home games in the competition against them.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:388:38Thrills and spills at Old TraffordManchester United 2-2 ArsenalOff to Old Trafford where Manchester United, minus the dropped Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku managed a draw with Arsenal in a frantic game.Arsenal went ahead after 26 minutes when David de Gea failed to deal with Shkodran Mustafi’s header, which Ander Herrera could not clear before it crossed the line.United were quickly level through Anthony Martial after Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno could only half-clear a free-kick.Substitute Alexandre Lacazette scrambled Arsenal back in front after 68 minutes but United were on terms once more within seconds as Jesse Lingard pounced on Sead Kolasinac’s attempted backpass.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:308:30Jota ends goalless runWolves 2-1 ChelseaSome stats from the game at Molineaux.Wolves have defeated ‘Big Six’ opposition in the Premier League for the first time since February 2011 against Manchester United (2-1) – they were winless in their previous 18 such games.Their Mexican forward Raul Jimenez, who is on loan from Benfica, has been directly involved in 53% of his side’s goals in the Premier League this season (eight of 15).Diogo Jota’s winning goal ended a run of 15 league games without a goal, His last goal came against Bolton in the Championship in April.Chelsea have now lost consecutive away games against newly-promoted sides for the first time since December 1999 when they were beaten by Watford and Sunderland.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:218:21Get Involved#bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)If you are a Chelsea fan, how worrying is this result?
