GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Fulham (Ake 45+5)

Premier League: From a Phil Foden corner, Nathan Ake heads the ball in the Fulham net at the Etihad. There’s a lengthy VAR check, because Manuel Akanji was standing in the middle of the six-yard box, clearly interfering with play (he jumped over the ball) and in Bernd Leno’s eyeline. Somewhat bizarrely, the goal is given. It looks like another VAR shocker and Fulham boss Marco Silva is furious. It’s not difficult to see why.

GOAL! Burnley 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur (Romero 45)

Premier League: Cristian Romero scores with a fine strike that goes in off the woodwork. His goal survives a VAR check for a possible James Maddison offside in the build-up.

Championship: Bottom of the table with just one draw from four games, Middlesbrough’s worst league start in 20 years shows no sign of improving. Andre Dozzell has put QPR ahead at the Riverside Stadium with a sensational strike from distance that went in off the post.

Championship: Jordan Hugill scores with a glancing header to double Rotherham’s lead against his former club Norwich City. It’s 1-1 in the match between Coventry and Watford, with Milan van Ewijk cancelling out Mileta Rajovic’s opener for the Hornets.

Championship: Aaron Ramsey has given Cardiff City a one-goal lead over Ipswich Town at Portman Road, while Finn Azaz has put Plymouth Argyle 1-0 up against Blackurn at Home Park. Huddersfield lead West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns, where Delano Burgzorg has got the goal.

GOAL! Manchester City 1-1 Fulham (Ream 33)

Premier League: At a Fulham corner, Ederson parries a shot a shot from Bobby Reid into the path of Tim Ream, who scores on the follow-up.

Chelsea 0-0 Nottingham Forest: The visitors squander a good opportunity to take the lead against Chelsea, with Taiwo Awoniyi blazing over from a good position following a goalmouth scramble prompted by a Morgan Gibbs-White delivery into the Chelsea penalty area.

Championship: Second in the table behind Leicester City, Norwich are looking for their fourth consecutive win. They trail Rotherham by the only goal of the game at the New York Stadium, where Dexter Lembikisa has put the home side ahead with a beauty from the edge of the box.

Championship: Coventry’s Matty Godden misses a penalty against Watford at the Building Society Arena, where it remains scoreless. At the King Power Stadium, Hull City lead Leicester courtesy of a Liam Delap goal. On loan from Manchester City, it’s the 20-year-old’s second goal of the season.

GOAL! Burnley 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Son 16)

Premier League: Son equalises for Spurs with a fine finish, dinking the ball over James Trafford after playing a one-two with Manor Solomon. Slightly at fault for the first goal, Pedro Porro started the move with a long ball from deep.

GOAL! Brentford 1-0 Bournemouth (Jensen 7)

Premier League: Neto concedes a free-kick and is subsequently unable to keep Matheus Jensen’s whipped effort from crossing the line, despite appearing to keep it out. Referee Andy Madley thought the goalkeeper had prevented the ball from crossing the line, but his magic wrist buzzer didn’t appear to be working. His assistants soon set him straight and the goal was awarded.

GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Foster 4)

Premier League: Lyle Foster gives Burnley an early lead, scoring his second goal in successive games to put them one up against Spurs. He gets in front of a defender to steer home a cross from Luca Koleosho.

Our three o’clock kick-offs are under way: And Chelsea are straight out of the blocks. Nicolas Jackson squanders an early chance before Ola Aina does superbly to block what looked a certain tap-in for Raheem Sterling, who’d got on the end of a Ben Chilwell cross.

Saturday clockwatch

Following last night’s win for West Ham over Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, it’s a big day in the top flight ahead of the first international break of the season. Sheffield United and Everton got the day’s action under way at Bramall Lane, where thr hosts have come from behind to lead at half-time.

Abdoulaye Doucoure poked Everton ahead with his side’s first Premier League goal of the season, a goal that was cancelled out by a fine strike from Jordan Archer on his Premier League debut for the Blades. Archer helped increase his team’s lead, forcing an own goal off Jordan Pickford with an even better effort that struck thge post deep in first-half added time.

Later this afternoon, free-spending Chelsea, league leaders Manchester City and born again Tottenham are among the big name sides kicking off at 3pm. Having spent over £1bn under their new ownership regime, Chelsea host a Nottingham Forest side who are without a league win on the road since their victory at Southampton in early January.

City, the reigning Champions, host Fulham and Spurs will try to put their midweek Carabao Cup defeat behind time by consigning Burnley to a third consecutive defeat. In today’s other 3pm fixture, Brentford will look to continue their excellent start to the season against Bournemouth.

We’ll bring you team news, updates on all the major talking points and flag up all the goals as they go in, before bringing you on-the-whistle reports from our correspondents at the grounds.
