In the first game of the day, City and Spurs met in a six-goal thriller, with both sides sharing the spoils.
The lead was traded back and forth as Spurs opened the scoring inside six minutes through Kenny McEvoy.
Both teams created a number of promising chances in the early stages, before strikes from Thierry Ambrose and Manu Garcia either side of half-time put the Citizens in front.
Ismail Azzaoui equalised for the Lilywhites when he smartly headed home the rebound after his initial shot was blocked.
Spurs then thought they'd won the encounter when Christian Maghoma found the net from Anthony Georgiou's corner in the 90th minute, but City fought back for a dramatic leveller through Bersant Celina with an immediate reply.
A first-half brace for Sam McQueen secured the victory for the Saints when they took on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, while Jake Hesketh added a third midway through the second half.
First, McQueen latched onto a floated cross after some neat work down the left flank:
Then, the 20-year-old was on hand to pounce on Armani Little's rebound after the midfielder hit the post in a one-on-one situation:
Shortly after the restart, Jay Dasilva came close to pulling one back for the Blues as he crashed a strike onto the underside of the bar from 18 yards.
Southampton made certain of the victory, though, with Hesketh finishing powerfully from close range after Jake Clarke-Salter failed to clear a cross:
Chelsea pulled one back through Tammy Abraham late on with a neat turn and finish, but overall, the Saints thoroughly deserved the win.
Arsenal enjoyed the better first half, but they could not finish their chances.
Stephy Mavididi was slipped in three times inside the box, but on two occasions, he found himself facing a difficult shooting angle. When presented with a simpler chance, Jesse Joronen was on hand to make the save to deny the youngster.
Jeff Reine-Adelaide ran riot over the Cottagers' defence but likewise could not break the deadlock, first curling an effort over the bar before forcing two excellent saves from the outstanding Joronen.
Ben Sheaf also came close for the visitors in the second half, but the Finnish stopper's goal was impenetrable.
Gedion Zelalem finally broke the deadlock with just four minutes of normal time remaining, finding the bottom corner after working his way into the penalty area with some neat passing.
The Gunners will be encouraged by their ability to create chance after chance in this game, but likewise, a worry will be their inability to finish the majority of them off.
However, Joronen's top-class performance was a large factor in Arsenal failing to score. They won't face a 'keeper of his calibre every week, though, so expect the Gunners to enjoy a successful campaign.
