Arsenal travelled to Anfield with a torrid record, having not won at Liverpool since September 2012. They produced a great start thanks to goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus inside the opening 30 minutes.

But the Reds, as they often have done at home, produced a stirring comeback that dented their opponents' title hopes.

Mohamed Salah converted from close range to reduce the deficit before half-time.

Salah then missed a penalty in the second half, but Roberto Firmino came on to score yet another goal against Arsenal as Liverpool threatened to earn all three points.

Aaron Ramsdale had to produce outstanding saves to deny first Salah and then Ibrahima Konate in the dying minutes of a thrilling encounter to preserve a point for Arsenal.

Both teams came into this fixture under huge pressure, having endured tough starts to their respective returns to the Premier League.

Nottingham Forest and AFC Bournemouth had only picked up four points from their opening five matches.

The hosts made a brilliant start, leading 2-0 at the break with Cheikhou Kouyate's strike and a Brennan Johnson penalty.

But in only Gary O'Neil's second match in charge, his Bournemouth side reduced the deficit within six minutes of the break thanks to Philip Billing. They were on level terms just after the hour mark through Dominic Solanke.

And in the 87th minute, Jaidon Anthony stepped up to be the Cherries' hero and help them claim three huge points in an early relegation six-pointer.

The manner of Bournemouth's victory also earned them Oracle's Most Improbable Comeback award.
