Last night's action: Not many teams will out-run Antonio Conte’s Chelsea this season but, on this evidence, not many will finish ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League either. This was their third league win and, after putting four past both Arsenal and Leicester City, their third big scalp. They should have beaten Tottenham Hotspur too, which is why, five games in and in fourth place, they already look like a very serious team.

This was a draining game under lights, a game that took every last joule of Liverpool energy to win. They controlled most of it, including a dominant first-half performance when they made Chelsea look unusually slow, soft and unable to get a foothold in the game. It was in that first half when Liverpool scored both of their goals, one routine from Dejan Lovren, one brilliant from Jordan Henderson.


What a talent. No need for Sergio Aguero to rush back from suspension.

61 mins: GOAL! WEST BROM 4 WEST HAM 1:

Michail Antonio has netted in his fourth consecutive Premier League game, and West Ham maybe have the slightest glimmer of hope. It's another header for the former Nottingham Forest man, who nods Dmitri Payet's cross inside the left post of Ben Foster's goal. Surely it's no more than a consolation for the Hammers.

Is the comeback on the Hawthorns? Brendan Galloway has brought down Dimitri Payet inside the box, and Mark Clattenburg has pointed for a West Ham penalty.

65 mins: GOAL! WEST BROM 4 WEST HAM 2:

Ben Foster goes the right way, but Manuel Lanzini just about squeezes his spotkick in and the deficit is just two with 25 minutes still to play. There could be a nervy finale in store for Tony Pulis and co.

Sublime football from Manchester City, and another brilliant goal! Ilkay Gundogan is the scorer, but it was more magic from Kevin De Bruyne that made it. The Belgian exchanged passes with Gael Clichy and Kelechi Iheanacho before bursting into midfield from the left and sending Gundogan into the box with a perfect through ball. Arriving on to the pass, the German gave Artur Boruc the eyes before stroking home City's fourth.

Roger East's afternoon has been an eventful one! The referee has awarded Hull a penalty for Petr Cech's foul on Dieumerci Mbokani, but only after he had initially waved away the challenge.

79 mins: GOAL! HULL 1 ARSENAL 2:

Hull City are back in it! Robert Snodgrass converts from 12 yards, sending Petr Cech the wrong way as he looped his left-footed shot into the top corner. Hold on to your hats at the KCOM!

600 matches, 51 goals, 594 yellow cards. Hats off to Gaz Baz.

53 mins: Everton sense they can kill this game off at the start of the second half, and after some neat build-up play in and around the Middlesbrough box, Kevin Mirallas powers a shot just wide of goal. No doubt Romelu Lukaku would have wanted that one too if it had gone in.

The signs are good at Goodison.
