A quick look at the action from this weekend’s matches.

Newcastle United 0 - Chelsea 2
The Blues extended their unbeaten streak to seven matches, and Edouard Mendy has kept a clean sheet in 7 of 9 appearances for the club. And Frank Lampard’s side is doing all this without Christian Pulisic.

Aston Villa 1 - Brighton & Hove Albion 2
Danny Welbeck scored his first Brighton goal and Solly March netted the winner early in the second half, just minutes after Ezri Konsa had equalized for Villa. The Villains were denied an injury time VAR penalty that could have equalized the scoreline.

Tottenham 2 - Manchester City 0
Goals from Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso earned the points for a Spurs team that put in a vintage Mourinho performance — get thoroughly dominated in every facet of the match except on the scoreboard. Spurs are top of the table, but Toby Alderweireld suffered a “bad” muscular injury and is likely to miss an extended period of time.

Manchester United 1 - West Bromwich Albion 0
Stop me if you’ve heard this before — United were bailed out by VAR and penalty kick shenanigans. Albion had a penalty overturned on review. Bruno Fernandes scored his second bite at the apple after it was determined Sam Johnstone had come off his line early.

Fulham 2 - Everton 3
Dominic Calvert-Lewin hit the double and became the first player in the Premier League to reach double digit goals, and Abdoulaye Doucoure scored the eventual winner. Fulham missed yet another penalty — this time Ivan Cavaleiro slipped in his run up and skied his attempt over the bar.

Sheffield United 0 - West Ham United 1
Sebastian Haller’s 56th minute goal was the difference in what was otherwise an incredibly boring match. Sheffield are terrible.

Today, Burnley take on Crystal Palace and Wolves play Southampton.
