English Premier League Table After Yesterday's Match

Chelsea thrashed London rivals Tottenham 3-0, while Manchester United beat West Ham 2-1 in a thrilling 2-1 victory, as the two Premier League giants joined a third, Liverpool, at the top.

Chelsea moved to 13 points after a dominating second-half display at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, with goals from Thiago Silva, the inspirational N'Golo Kante, and Antonio Rudiger.

Jesse Lingard had scored a sensational late goal at the London Stadium just a few miles away before David de Gea saved a stoppage-time penalty to give Man Utd the win and move on to number 13 in the Premier League.

At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it was an emotional afternoon as the two teams for which Jimmy Greaves scored the majority of his goals paid homage to their late, great striker, who died at the age of 81.

Chelsea took total control after the interval, sending out an alarming warning in the title race after the hosts had dominated the first half.

Thiago's header put Chelsea ahead in the 49th minute, Kante's deflected drive past Hugo Lloris soon after, and Rudiger's late strike was enough to give Chelsea and Liverpool equal records after five games, with both teams scoring 12 goals and conceding just one.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believed that Kante's introduction after the interval had made the difference.

Tuchel said, "If you have N'Golo, you have something that everyone is seeking for." "In midfield, you have everything you need: work rate, energy, ball wins, deft play, dribbles, half-field drives, and even a goal."

Man United's sub Lingard had blasted a thunderous shot into the top corner in the 89th minute against his old club, only for the Hammers to spurn a penalty opportunity seconds later after defender Luke Shaw's handball.

After getting off the bench, Mark Noble went up to take the penalty, but De Gea read properly and dived to save his weak spot-kick.

Said Benrahma's deflected shot put West Ham in front on the half-hour mark, but Cristiano Ronaldo head a Bruno Fernandes cross at Lukasz Fabianksi and followed up to touch the ball into the net five minutes later.

After scoring twice in his second debut for the club against the Magpies and once in the 2-1 Champions League defeat at Young Boys on Tuesday, it was Ronaldo's fourth goal in 3 matches

Thanks to a penalty from Neal Maupay and a header from Danny Welbeck, Brighton continued their outstanding start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Leicester at the Amex Stadium on Sunday, moving to fourth in the table, a point behind the top three.

In the 61st minute, Jamie Vardy equalized for Leicester with his 150th goal in his 250th Premier League game.
