Ranieri made three changes to his team, with Andy King, Okazaki and Marcin Wasilewski coming in, while Everton were unchanged. It was Okazaki who had the only attempt of the early stages when he prodded Marc Albrighton’s cross narrowly wide. For the hosts, Ross Barkley sliced a volley badly off target after Lukaku had created
Chelsea made two changes from Monday’s loss at Leicester, with Fabregas and Pedro in for Ramires and Eden Hazard, who missed out with a hip injury, while Sam Allardyce restored Younes Kaboul, Jack Rodwell and Jermain Defoe to his line-up. The defending Premier League champions took just five minutes to get off the mark, Ivanovic
Ranieri kept faith with the same line-up from Leicester’s 3-0 win over Swansea City last weekend and Mahrez – who scored all three goals at the Liberty Stadium – called Courtois into action inside two minutes with a 20-yard strike that proved comfortable for the Chelsea goalkeeper. The hosts maintained their high-tempo start but
With Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian joining a growing United injury list, youngsters Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Guillermo Varela made their first Premier League starts in a makeshift defence.

While Wenger was forced into two changes, Allardyce introduced Fabio Borini, Ola Toivonen and Duncan Watmore into his starting XI for the injured trio of Jermain Defoe, Seb Larsson and Lee Cattermole. Borini spurned a golden opportunity four minutes in when he shot straight at Petr Cech when clean through before Ramsey fired wide, having
Manuel Pellegrini’s team were fitful in attack, a far cry from the silken fluency demonstrated by Stoke as match-winner Arnautovic struck a post and passed up two further chances to claim the matchball. The Premier League leaders could end the weekend in fourth place after a display that made a mockery of their lofty status.
The substitute had been on the pitch for just 99 seconds before he bundled home a dramatic deciding goal in one of the most famous victories in the Cherries’ history Glenn Murray scored a dramatic late winning goal as Bournemouth recorded one of the most famous wins in their history against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Norwich caused a few problems with some early set-pieces and Ozil should have opened the scoring for Arsenal when he was picked out in the box by Nacho Monreal. The German dragged his effort off target, with Sebastian Bassong clearing the danger. Sanchez drew the first good save out of John Ruddy, forcing the England
