Arsenal topped the Premier League with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

An early double by Martin Odegaard gave the Gunners the lead and William Saliba added a third with his first goal for the club.

It was the first time in 18 years that Arsenal started the season with three wins, and the win put them ahead of north London neighbors Tottenham, who had beaten Wolves earlier in the day.

Harry Kane continued his Premier League streak with Spurs’ historic header to give Antonio Conte’s side a 1-0 win.

The England captain scored his 185th goal in the Premier League with a close-range shot in the second half.

Kane’s header overtook Sergio Aguero to move him up to fourth on the league’s all-time top scorers list and give Spurs seven points from their opening three games.

It was Kane’s 250th goal in all competitions for Spurs as former Brazil international striker Ronaldo attended the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, and Jimmy Greaves’ record of 266 is certainly under threat this season. I’m here.

His goal was also Tottenham’s 1,000th home goal in the Premier League.

Fulham secured their opening Premier League match by beating local rivals Brentford 3-2.

Mitrovic headed home Kevin Mbab’s teasing far-post cross after Brentford fought back from a 2-0 lead in the first quarter after two goals were disallowed by Ivan Tony.

Tony saw two fine finishes ruled out for offside, but what he considered lucky in the third when he tapped home in the 71st minute to level the score at 2-2. I made it Christian Norgaard got one back on the stroke of half-time.

But Mitrovic had the last word after Bobby de Cordova Reid had a shot within 45 seconds and João Parinha had a shot 20 minutes later.

Wilfred Zaha’s double gave Crystal Palace their first win of the season as Aston Villa lost 3-1 at Selhurst Park.

Lacking Chelsea target Wesley Fofana, Leicester lost 2–1 at home to Southampton.

With Fofana watching from the stands, substitute Che Adams’ stunning scissors kick sealed the Saints’ first win of the season six minutes later.

Leicester took the lead in the 54th minute through a James Maddison free-kick, but Adams came off the bench to give the Saints the win.
