Chelsea and Manchester City supply two players each: Premier League team of the week

West Ham also have a pair of players in the XI after their 4-1 thrashing of Leicester

The new Premier League season is firmly up and running and the second round of fixtures certainly delivered its fair share of thrills.

Liverpool got the weekend under way on Saturday afternoon with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield, before Aston Villa registered their first win of the post-Jack Grealish era with a victory by the same scoreline against Newcastle United.

A goalless draw at Selhurst Park between Crystal Palace and Brentford ensured the promoted club stayed unbeaten, while a 2-2 thriller at Elland Road saw Leeds and Everton claim a point apiece.

Champions Manchester City shrugged off their disappointing opening day loss by thrashing promoted Norwich City 5-0 and Brighton made it two wins from two with 2-0 victory over Watford.

Sunday's fixtures began at St Mary's where Southampton held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw, before Nuno Espirito Santo got one over his former club as Tottenham beat Wolves 1-0 at Molineux.

The blockbuster tie of the weekend then saw Chelsea cruise past Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates, with the final match of the round being played out on Monday night as West Ham dominated 10-man Leicester 4-1.
