Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half goal handed Arsenal their first points of the season as they completed a 1-0 win over Norwich City.
Arsenal started brightly with Aubameyang shooting over from distance early on.
Norwich showed their threat on the break with Kenny McLean glancing a header wide from a Max Aarons cross, while Aarons also tested goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, making his first league appearance for the Gunners, on 26 minutes.
Arsenal stepped up the pressure in the second half and Brandon Williams made a vital block to deny Nicolas Pepe.
Pepe then had a hand in Arsenal’s first goal of the season, which arrived on 66 minutes. Pepe’s shot came back off the post and Aubameyang tapped in his fifth goal in three appearances against the Canaries.
Arsenal move up to 16th with three points.
Norwich drop to the bottom of the table without a point from four matches.
Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game to give Manchester City a deserved, but hard-earned victory against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
The Portuguese midfielder lashed home from close range in the 62nd minute after Joao Cancelo’s strike deflected kindly into his path off Caglar Soyuncu to give Pep Guardiola’s men a third consecutive victory.
It was just reward for City, who dominated an entertaining contest in which the home side saw a couple of golden opportunities go begging before Bernardo broke the deadlock.
Ederson did brilliantly to keep out an early Harvey Barnes effort and the winger later sent a header against the top of the crossbar before Jamie Vardy saw a goal ruled out for offside after he raced between Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte and rounded the goalkeeper.
However, the Foxes chances were few and far between and they were indebted to the superb Kasper Schmeichel, who made a string of saves to prevent the visitors winning by an even greater margin.
He twice denied Gabriel Jesus from point-blank range, made a smart stop from Ferran Torres and was at full stretch to turn a Bernardo drive round the post as City maintained our recent run of fine form.
Leicester defender Jannik Vestergaard then produced a terrific block to deny Ferran Torres as it remained goalless at half-time.
Harvey Barnes missed a glorious chance after 47 minutes, heading against the top of the crossbar from Jamie Vardy’s cross.
Man City took the lead after 62 minutes when Bernardo Silva tapped in after Joao Cancelo’s shot had been blocked by Caglar Soyuncu.
Ademola Lookman was denied a goal on his Leicester debut as his shot was saved by Ederson and the champions held on to move up to third with nine points.
Romelu Lukaku scored his second, Chelsea have the points, and what a return to Stamford Bridge for the Belgian.
It’s a superb finish with his left-foot from the edge of the area.
A really good finish from the Belgian. He’s had two chances and has taken both of them.
Azpilicueta nutmegged Mings and played the ball across the face of the 18-yard-box, finding Lukaku outside the box who created some space for himself to fire the ball into the top corner with immense power.
Former Barcelona star Dani Alves has had his Sao Paulo contract terminated following a wage dispute with the Brazilian club.
The 38-year-old returned to his home country in 2019 after 17 incredibly successful years playing in Europe.
Alves, who still hopes to go to the 2022 Qatar World Cup, played 95 times for Sao Paulo, scoring ten goals for the Brazilian side.
But following a disagreement with the club, he, according to The Sun, has now parted ways just one month after winning Olympic gold with Brazil at the Tokyo Games.
Football director Carlos Belmonte said: “We were told by his representatives that Daniel Alves will not come back to Sao Paulo until there is an adjustment in the financial debt that Sao Paulo has with the player.
“Sao Paulo recognises that debt and last week we made a proposal to try and right it. The proposal was not accepted by the player’s representatives. Negotiations will continue.
“We have taken the decision and told this to coach Hernan Crespo that Dani Alves will no longer be at his disposal to play for Sao Paulo.
“We all work for this institution. Nobody is bigger than Sao Paulo Football Club.”
Meanwhile, Alves’ management say he is owed £1.37million in relation to image rights, a sum which accounts for revenue dating back to his arrival two years ago.
Sao Paulo insist they have repaid their debts, though they admit some were transferred late.
Alves is the most successful footballer of all time, with the gold medal at the Tokyo Games taking his tally of major titles to a remarkable 43.
Those include six La Liga titles, five Copa del Reys and five Super Cups during his time in Spain with Sevilla and Barcelona.
He also lifted the Champions League three times with Barca in 2009, 2011 and 2015.
Sergio Aguero has insisted that a Lionel Messi-related exit clause in his Barcelona contract does not exist.
The Argentine forward, who joined Barcelona in the summer as a free agent after his deal with Manchester City ended, was said to be attracted to the club to play alongside his good friend Messi.
So when Messi was unable to re-sign with Barcelona and joined PSG on a free transfer, Aguero was said to be disgruntled and there was even whispers of cancelling his contract.
But the 33-year-old striker says there was never any such release clause and he remains fully committed to his new club despite Messi’s departure.
“I don’t understand why there was talk of this. When I signed, Leo had nothing signed. They were coming to an agreement”, he told RAC1.
“It was invented that there was a clause, but there was nothing.”
When asked whether he wants to face Messi in the Champions League, he added: “I’ve already faced Messi, but it would be very nice. Now… we know that when Leo turns on the light it’s impossible to stop him.”
