Dominic Calvert-Lewin has become the first player to score in each of Everton's first three Premier League matches of a campaign since Steven Naismith in 2014/15.

West Bromwich Albion 3-3 Chelsea

Since the start of last season, Danny Ings has scored 25 of Southampton's 54 Premier League goals (46 per cent). No player has netted more in this period.

Sheffield United 0-1 Leeds United

Patrick Bamford has become the first Leeds United player to score in their first three top-flight appearances, and only the third player to do so in the first three Matchweeks of a Premier League season for a promoted team, after Michael Ricketts in 2001/02 for Bolton Wanderers and Norwich's Teemu Pukki last term.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Newcastle United

Callum Wilson's equaliser for Newcastle United at 96min 20sec was the latest scored by a team with their first shot on target in a Premier League match since Opta began collecting exact PL goal times in 2006.

Aston Villa have kept their first clean sheet in 27 Premier League away matches, a feat they previously achieved at West Brom in January 2016. It is only the third time they have opened a PL campaign with back-to-back victories, having also done so in 1995/96 and 1999/00.

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Diogo Jota has become the 13th player to score on his Premier League debut for Liverpool, and the first to do so in a match against Arsenal since Sadio Mane in August 2016.
