Former Nigerian international, Victor Moses, was not listed for action again on Saturday as Chelsea continued their perfect run in the Premier League this season with a 2-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Since the arrival of Maurizo Sarri at Stamford Bridge, Moses has moved from a key player to a bit-part contributor to the Blues.

Nonetheless, Sarri has been getting it right with his other trusted personnel as Chelsea made it four wins in as many games on Saturday.

The duo of Pedro and Eden Hazard got the goals that gave Chelsea their latest win. Elsewhere, another Nigerian, Leon Balogun, was denied playing time.

He was on bench from start to finish but his team Brighton rescued out a point from their game against Fulham.

A double from Glenn Murray in either half helped Brighton to a 2-2 draw at home to the promoted Fulham.

Brighton recovered after going a goal in the first half and did so again late on with Murray converting from the spot to force a draw.

Also, Everton rallied from a goal down to force a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield to continue their improved campaign under Marco Silva.

Philip Billing gave the visitors the lead on 34 minutes, but a header from youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin ensured the Toffees walk away with a point.

It was however different for West Ham United whose woeful start to the season continued after Wolves left it late at the London Stadium in an uneventful encounter.

Substitute Adama Traore came off the bench to hit the winner for Wolves at the death to leave them with all the points.

The Hammers as a consequence remain rock bottom, with four losses on the bounce while Wolves surge up slightly.

At Shelhurst Park, Crystal Palace were made to pay for a host of missed chances at home to Southampton as they were beaten 2-0 by the Saints.

In the day’s final game, Manchester City returned to winning ways as they beat Newcastle United 2-1at the Etihad Stadium.
