Leandro Trossard scored his fifth goal since De Zerbi's appointment, before own goals by Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah gave Brighton a commanding half-time lead.

Kai Havertz sparked Chelsea hopes of a comeback, but Pascal Gross sealed the win in stoppage time to give Brighton their first ever Premier League win over the Blues and in turn, move them up to eighth.

Chelsea remain in fifth on 21 points.

Sensational De Bruyne sends City top

A brilliant free-kick from Kevin De Bruyne was enough to send Manchester City top as they beat Leicester City 1-0 at King Power Stadium despite the absence of Erling Haaland.

City were dominant but, missing the 17-goal Haaland, who was out with a foot injury, they needed brilliance from captain De Bruyne, whose 49th-minute dipping free-kick went over the wall and in via a post.

City go a point above Arsenal, who can return to the top if they beat Nottingham Forest in Sunday's first match. Leicester, whose three-match unbeaten run was ended, are 18th on 11 points. 

Spurs complete turnaround win

Tottenham Hotspur came from two goals down to beat AFC Bournemouth 3-2 at Vitality Stadium. A first-half brace by Kieffer Moore had put the Cherries in command, but Ryan Sessegnon started the comeback, Ben Davies put Spurs level and Rodrigo Bentancur won it in stoppage time.

The victory kept Spurs third on 26 points, two behind Arsenal, whilst a third straight defeat leaves AFC Bournemouth in 14th on 13 points.

Newcastle keep winning

Newcastle United made it five wins from their last six after thrashing Aston Villa 4-0. 

Callum Wilson got a brace and Miguel Almiron scored a beauty, his sixth goal in as many matches, either side of Joelinton's strike.

Eddie Howe's team stay fourth and are now on 24 points, while Villa are in 16th on 12 points.

Leeds shock Liverpool

Leeds United produced a stunning result at Anfield, beating Liverpool 2-1 to claim their first away win of the season.

Crysencio Summerville netted in the 89th minute, after Mohamed Salah had cancelled out Rodrigo's opener. 

The result drops Liverpool to ninth on 16 points, four more than Jesse Marsch's team who climb out of the bottom three to 15th.

Palace edge Saints 

At Selhurst Park, Odsonne Edouard's first-half goal was enough for Crystal Palace to beat Southampton and seal a third consecutive home win, moving the Eagles up to 10th on 16 points. Southampton are 17th with 12 points.

Honours even in west London

The points were shared between Brentford and Wolverhampton Wanderers, with two stunners scored at the Gtech Community Stadium. 

Ben Mee's spectacular volley on 50 minutes put Brentford ahead, but Ruben Neves levelled 109 seconds later with a trademark long-range strike to earn a draw.

Wolves remain in the bottom three on 10 points and lost Diego Costa for the next two league matches after the forward was sent off for violent conduct in stoppage time. Brentford sit 11th on 15 points. 

Meanwhile at Craven Cottage, Jordan Pickford starred, making six saves, as Fulham and Everton played out a goalless draw to keep Frank Lampard's side in 12th on 14 points, while Marco Silva's team are in seventh with 19 points.

Sunday's action

After Arsenal host Nottingham Forest, Manchester United will welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford.
