Every week, The Independent's digital sports team picks out the key players, performances and talking points from the weekend's Premier League action.

The much anticipated match up between London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal did not disappoint.

Fabregas showed just what his former team was missing, with yet another assist for the league's early pace setters and Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho were at it again after the Frenchman got caught up with his opposite number on the toucjline.

At Old Trafford, David De Gea showed fans once again why he is now seen as one of the Premier League's best goalkeepers, with a virtuoso performance which saw him save a penalty and make two more outstanding stops to ensure Manchester United came away with the three points at Old Trafford against struggling Everton.

Newly-promoted Burnley left it late at the King Power stadium, when a late free-kick from Ross Wallace saw them come from behind against last year's Championship winners Leicester.

A return to form for talisman Yaya Toure saw him help mastermind a crucial 2-0 victory away at Aston Villa to ensure that Manchester City maintained pace with  Chelsea.

West Ham continued their good start to the season as a goal from in-form summer signing Diafra Sakho and an own goal from Nedum Onuoha ensured they made it two wins out of two at The Boleyn against struggling QPR.
