All the best Premier League fixtures fell on Saturday this week.

Arsenal traveled to Old Trafford, where Manchester United hammered them by an 8-2 score last time out. Chelsea headed to Swansea on the back of their first defeat of the season and all the activity that happened in the aftermath.

The early kickoff saw the action started at Old Trafford, where Manchester United welcomed an Arsenal side returning to the scene of one of Arsene Wenger's worst crimes in his 16-year career as Gunners boss.

On a side note, it was also Robin van Persie's first time facing his old club since leaving for just £24 million during the summer.

From there, it was on to the four 3 p.m. (GMT) kickoffs, including struggling Norwich City taking on Stoke City, with boredom written all over it. Could the Giovanni Trapattoni curse strike again?

The late kickoff saw Roberto Mancini's Manchester City side—the only unbeaten side left in the top flight—travel to the Boleyn Ground to take on West Ham United.

The focus then turned to Sunday's fixtures where both QPR and Reading went in search of a first win of the season before Newcastle headed to Anfield, to face Liverpool, with a win firmly on their minds.
