Burnley lifted themselves to 13th place in the Premier League table with an excellent 2-0 win over in-form Watford at Turf Moor on Monday to complete the action in Week 6.
Jeff Hendrick headed home the opener for Sean Dyche's side in the 38th minute as Watford failed to organise themselves properly defending a corner.
The Hornets were guilty of allowing too much space again at a set piece when Michael Keane put Burnley 2-0 up after Watford failed to clear another corner five minutes after the break.
On both occasions, summer signing Steven Defour provided excellent delivery, per Squawka:

City Looking to Preserve Perfect Start
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City were made to work for their 3-1 victory over Swansea City in Week 6, but a couple of moments of quality from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling saw them to their sixth win in six Premier League matches in 2016-17.
Next up in Week 7, the Sky Blues face Tottenham Hotspur, the only other club yet to lose a Premier League game so far this season.
If Spurs win at White Hart Lane, they will move just one point behind table-topping City, but a victory for the Manchester outfit would see them move at least five points clear at the summit come the end of the weekend.
A Bleacher Report panel discussed after City's Swansea win the possibility that they could go the whole 2016-17 Premier League season unbeaten:

Mauricio Pochettino's side will be very tough for City to beat—the north London outfit have conceded just three goals in the league so far this term—and the Sky Blues will likely be without key man Kevin De Bruyne after he picked up a hamstring injury, per ESPN FC's Ben Dinnery:

De Bruyne will travel to Barcelona for further tests but Guardiola is already resigned to the fact that he will miss around a month. #MCFC2016-9-25 20:48:18
While the prospect of City losing seems unlikely given the quality Guardiola's side have shown so far in 2016-17, Spurs have more than enough to frustrate them in front of goal.
City could well then drop their first points of the term in north London, with a draw keeping both sides' unbeaten records intact.
United Can Build on Drubbing of Champions Against Stoke
Manchester United finally found some form on Saturday as they returned to Old Trafford after three matches on the road and crushed defending Premier League champions Leicester City 4-1.
Also notable was summer signing Paul Pogba's man-of-the-match performance, which included his first goal for the club and some delightful touches from the world's most expensive player, per Sky Sports Statto:

Man of the Match, @ManUtd's Paul Pogba 1 goal 2 attempts on target 3 key passes 99 passes, 87% accuracy 115 touches - most in game https://t.co/Gj5lsDQt5z2016-9-24 13:38:56
United are at home again in their next Premier League game and face Stoke City, who are still yet to record a top-flight win in 2016-17 but arrested a slump of four defeats on the bounce by claiming a point against West Bromwich Albion.
Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho will surely opt to play a similar side against the Potters as he did against Leicester—barring injuries, it would be no surprise if he deployed the same starting XI.
Stoke are in much worse shape than Leicester, so United will be expected to pick up another three points.
And given their performance against the Foxes, the Red Devils will be hugely boosted. The combination of home advantage and superior form should see United to another victory as they aim to close down on City at the top of the table.
