Here’s the full rundown of six matches through 45 minutes (or 270, if you like).

Everton 2-0 West Ham United

It’s a pair for Rooney, his 203rd and 204th in the Premier League, as the Toffees look set to climb five points clear of relegation before Sam Allardyce even sets foot inside the coaches box.

Stoke City 0-1 Liverpool

Sadio Mane‘s fine time as a Red continues with a chipped goal assisted by Dominic Solanke.

Manchester City 0-0 Southampton

The table toppers in control as you might expect, but yet to find a goal at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea 0-0 Swansea City

In retrospect, it’s odd this doesn’t happen more often: Antonio Conte has been sent to the stands for arguing a goal kick.

Bournemouth 0-1 Burnley

It’s big New Zealand striker Chris Wood on the score sheet for the Clarets, after a Steve Cook turnover.

Arsenal 1-0 Huddersfield Town

How’s this for a team goal, completed by Alexandre Lacazette?
