Southampton maintained their impressive start with another win, beating Fulham 2-0 at home. Jay Rodriguez excelled again in an attacking midfield role, scoring once and setting up another in a strong overall display.
Aaron Ramsey has enjoyed a similarly outstanding start to the season, and he provided the assist on Olivier Giroud's victory-sealing goal to cap a fine outing against Crystal Palace.
At Liverpool, Luis Suarez made the headlines with his hat-trick, but Steven Gerrard also performed admirably in midfield. The reliable veteran provided an assist and completed 87 percent of his passes as the Reds destroyed West Brom 4-1.
Finally, Marko Arnautovic provided a constant danger on the flank for Stoke as the Potters saw their upset bid fall just short at Old Trafford. Arnautovic scored a lovely free kick, and it was probably no coincidence that Stoke were much less potent after he left the match early in the second half.
