Manchester City slipped to a shock first Premier League defeat of the season when they were beaten 2-1 at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, while Tottenham Hotspur overcame nine-man Liverpool by the same score thanks to a stoppage-time Joel Matip own goal. Manchester United's campaign of woe continued with a 1-0 home loss to Crystal Palace but there were no such troubles for Arsenal who, along with Spurs, closed the gap to leaders City to one point with a rampant 4-0 win at Bournemouth.
Manchester United slumped to their fourth defeat of the Premier League season as an early Joachim Andersen strike earned Crystal Palace a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

With plenty of time to find a leveller on home turf, clear-cut chances remained few and far between in the Manchester rain, with Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone enjoying a quiet afternoon.
