Saturday is GameDay on talkSPORT and we review another thrilling day of Premier League action…
Sheffield United came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Chelsea which leaves Frank Lampard still looking for a first home win in charge.
The Blues looked to have the points in the bag as Tammy Abraham’s first-half double gave them a comfortable half-time lead, but the Blades mounted an impressive second-half recovery.
Callum Robinson got it under way less than a minute after the restart and then Kurt Zouma’s own goal in the 87th minute earned a deserved point for the Blades.
Defender Fabian Schar salvaged 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.

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.
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.
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.
Liverpool head into the international break on top of the Premier League after extending their 100 per cent record to four matches with a 3-0 win at Burnley.
An own goal by Chris Wood, deflecting in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross, was added to by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as Jurgen Klopp’s side regained top spot just over two hours after Manchester City had briefly overtaken them.
It was an afternoon of firsts for the Reds. First time the club have won 13 consecutive league matches. First time they have have won their opening four matches in back-to-back seasons. First clean sheet of the season. And Firmino becoming the first Brazilian to score 50 Premier League goals.
But this was a different type of victory to what had gone before, grinding it out before moving through the gears when they spotted the right opportunity.
