Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk scored a first-half volley as they claimed a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United, handing new Blades boss Chris Wilder a losing start on his return to the club.

The win lifts second-placed Liverpool to 34 points, two behind leaders Arsenal, while Wilder faces an uphill battle after taking over Sheffield United as they remain rooted to the bottom of the table on five points after 15 games.

Aston Villa stunned Manchester City with a fully-deserved 1-0 win thanks to a deflected shot from Leon Bailey, leaving the reigning champions in an unfamiliar fourth position and six points off the top.

Unai Emery’s Villa, enjoying their best season for years, oozed with confidence and dominated the game throughout, leap-frogging City to third in the table.

City are on 30 points after 15 games – six points behind Arsenal – and without a win in their last four Premier League matches.

Aston Villa moved up to third on 32 points, two behind Liverpool and four behind Arsenal.

Manchester United’s Scott McTominay scored either side of halftime to guide his team to a well-deserved 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford.

United dominated in a victory that lifted Erik ten Hag’s beleaguered team, who have been hounded by recent reports of unrest in the dressing room, into sixth place on 27 points after 15 games.

Chelsea are 10th on 19 points.

Teenage midfielder Jack Hinshelwood saved on the line and then headed a winning first Premier League goal for Brighton & Hove Albion as the south-coast side came from behind to beat Brentford 2-1.

Moments earlier Hinshelwood had made a block on the line from substitute Yoane Wissa after Neal Maupay also had a shot stopped.

Brighton moved up to seventh on 25 points with Brentford 11th on 19.
