The Hammers outmuscled Liverpool for a memorable 3-2 victory at a rocking London Stadium on Sunday

West Ham claimed an impressive 3-2 victory over Liverpool to end the Reds’ unbeaten start to the season.

The Hammers moved above their opponents into third and denied Jurgen Klopp’s side a piece of club history as they looked to extend their run to 26 matches without defeat.

Pablo Fornals’ corner was palmed into his own net by Reds goalkeeper Alisson for the opening goal.

Fornals restored West Ham’s lead with a cool finish after a stunning free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold had hauled Liverpool level before the break before Kurt Zouma made it 3-1.

Divock Origi gave Liverpool late hope, but West Ham held on for a notable win.

Antonio Conte’s first Premier League game in charge of Tottenham ended in a goalless draw with Everton at Goodison Park.

Chances were at a premium in the first half following an early Ben Godfrey effort that was pushed away by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Everton thought they had won a penalty just after the hour when Richarlison was brought down by Lloris, but the decision was overturned by VAR.

Demarai Gray spurned a good chance for the Merseysiders before Giovani Lo Celso hit a post for Tottenham.

Toffees substitute Mason Holgate was sent off 10 minutes after coming on for a high challenge on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg but Everton held on to break a run of three straight Premier League defeats.

Emile Smith Rowe scored his third goal in as many league matches as Arsenal moved up to fifth with a 1-0 win against Watford.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had seen a first-half penalty saved by Ben Foster on the veteran goalkeeper’s 500th career appearance after a Bukayo Saka effort was ruled out by VAR for offside.

But the Gunners went ahead in the 56th minute when Smith Rowe struck a first-time shot into the bottom-right corner after the ball had fallen kindly for him just outside the area.

Joshua King came close to an equaliser for Watford, who finished the game with 10 men after Juraj Kucka was shown a second yellow card in the dying moments.

Two goals in two first-half minutes saw Leeds draw 1-1 at home to Leicester.

Raphinha opened the scoring for Marcelo Bielsa’s struggling side when his low curling free-kick eluded everybody and found the bottom left corner.

But Leeds’ joy was short-lived as Leicester levelled straight from the kick-off. A long ball forward picked out Harvey Barnes and he cut in from the right before curling a stunning shot into the top corner.

Ademola Lookman had a second-half strike ruled out for offside following a VAR check as the game ended all square.
