EPL : Manchester United stage stunning comeback over Newcastle

Agency, 7 October : Alexis Sanchez scored in the 90th minute as Manchester United fought back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle United 3-2.

The visitors had become the first team to score twice in the first 10 minutes of a Premier League match at Old Trafford as Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto, with his first goal for the club, put them in control.

First-half substitute Juan Mata gave Manchester United hope with a 70th-minute free-kick and Anthony Martial then collected Paul Pogba’s backheel to equalise six minutes later.

In a dramatic finale Sanchez beat a crowd of players to head in Ashley Young’s cross and earn a dramatic victory for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Man Utd move up to eighth place with the win, while Newcastle are 19th with two points this season.

Dier strikes as Spurs beat 10-man Cardiff

Eric Dier struck his first club goal in 18 months as Tottenham made it three victories in as many Premier League matches by defeating 10-man Cardiff 1-0.

Davinson Sanchez won a header following a cross by England full back Kieran Trippier and, as the ball became stuck under the feet of Cardiff’s Joe Bennett, Dier showed a striker’s instinct to thrash the ball into the net.


Sigurdsson seals Everton win at Leicester

Iceland playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson produced a contender for English Premier League goal of the season to help Everton beat 10-man Leicester 2-1 on Saturday.

Sigurdsson collected Idrissa Gueye’s pass before a quick turn away from Leicester’s James Maddison allowed him to take a touch and unleash a bullet from 25 yards into the top corner of the net.

Brazil forward Richarlison got the first goal of the game after Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel failed to deal with a cross in the eighth minute.

The home team levelled five minutes before the break when Kelechi Iheanacho led a lightning counter-attack and Ricardo Pereira burst down the right before cutting inside to beat goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Everton took control after Wes Morgan’s second-half dismissal.


Crystal Palace 0-1 Wolves

Matt Doherty scored a fine winner as Wolverhampton Wanderers, setting an English Premier League record when they were unchanged for their eighth match from the start of the season, won 1-0 at rainswept Crystal Palace.

Right back Doherty struck after 56 minutes when he rifled in a shot from a tight angle between Wayne Hennessey and the near post on Saturday as Wolves went a sixth match unbeaten and climbed to seventh with 15 points before Sunday’s matches.


Burnley 1-1 Huddersfield

Aaron Mooy’s strugglers Huddersfield Town have picked up a valuable away point with a 1-1 draw at Burnley in the English Premier League.

Sam Vokes headed Burnley in front in the 20th minute, rising well to meet a Johann Berg Gudmundsson cross.

Huddersfield dominated possession though and finally got some reward in the 66th minute when Christopher Schindler headed in Chris Lowe’s cross. The Yorkshire side have yet to win this season and are in 18th place on three points.


Watford 0-4 Bournemouth

Josh King struck twice as Bournemouth continued their best start to an English Premier League season and earn their biggest top-flight away win with a 4-0 thumping of 10-man Watford at Vicarage Road.

The battle between the league’s two biggest surprise packets turned into an unexpected one-sided romp for Eddie Howe’s men, who were inspired by their attacking duo of Callum Wilson and King and aided by the 32nd-minute sending off of Christian Kabasele.

David Brooks put the Cherries ahead after a swift 14th- minute counter before a double blow for Watford saw Kabasele dismissed for bringing down King, who picked himself up to score from the penalty spot.

King combined with Wilson for Bournemouth’s third just before the break before Wilson deservedly got in on the scoring act just after the restart to push the Cherries up to fifth place.
