Arsenal continued their excellent start to the Premier League with a 3-0 win at Bournemouth and now sit straight at the top of the table.

Just 12 months ago, Arsenal were on the brink of their 67th start to a season where they had lost their first three league games.

But after opening the season with wins over Crystal Palace and Leicester City, the Gunners are now poised for a third straight win.

Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard, who scored two goals in the first 11 minutes, said: “Compared to last season, we are a bit ahead.

But we have to stay calm, be humble, work hard and see where it takes us.

It was another clinical display from the north Londoners after scoring four goals against Leicester last weekend.

Arsenal finished with ease five minutes later when Gabriel Jesus found Gabriel Martinelli on a run and a brilliant run into the path of Odegaard.

Odegaard, once hailed as Real Madrid’s wonderkid, added another six minutes later when Jesus’ heavy touch was fired home by the Arsenal captain from 10 yards.

William Saliba’s first-time goal in the 54th minute came off the edge of the box brilliantly as the French defender scored his first goal for the club and showed Arsenal’s confidence.

Manchester City can still leapfrog Arsenal and get back to square one, with the champions meeting Newcastle on Monday (AEST).

Second-placed Tottenham have made a strong start to Antonio Conte’s first full season in the transfer market.

Tottenham have gone on a seven-point run from their first three games since being knocked out of the Champions League by Arsenal in May.

However, Conte’s poor performance in the first half left them disappointed and could be punished by stronger opponents.

After the break, Tottenham improved and got their reward as Ivan Perisic headed in Son Heung-min’s corner kick.

Kane’s 185th Premier League goal – Tottenham’s 250th in all competitions – set the record for the most by anyone for one club.

“I think every player is ready to exchange personal success to reach a trophy,” Conte said in Can, who has yet to win a major trophy in his career.

“We are working on this aspect. The road is difficult, the road is long, but we have to try to do it.

Fofana is out for Leicester.

Elsewhere in the table, Manchester United are bottom ahead of their big clash with Liverpool on Tuesday morning (AEST).

But Leicester are just a point clear after Southampton’s Chey Adams scored twice in a 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium.

Wesley Fofana has been left out of Brendan Rodgers’ squad as the Frenchman looks to move to Chelsea.

Leicester are the only Premier League club yet to spend any money in the transfer window, but will need to do so in the final 10 days of the window to avoid a difficult season.

James Maddison’s free-kick put the Foxes in front but Adams twice beat the poor defense in the absence of Fofana to give Southampton their first win of the season.

The pressure is back on Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard after his side got off to a poor start with a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring for the visitors at Selhurst Park after five minutes, but Wilfried Zaha quickly equalised.

Zaha then put Palace in front at the second attempt after Emiliano Martinez’s free-kick was saved.

Jean-Philippe Matheta made the point safe on 19 minutes.

Fulham remained unbeaten as Aleksandar Mitrovic returned to the top flight with a stunning 3-2 west London derby win at Brentford with a header.

Mitrovic leads the race for the Golden Boot with Leeds’ Rodrigo and Palace’s Wilfried Zaha all having three goals to their name.

The newly-promoted side shocked the footballing world when they drew against Liverpool in the opening game of the season, but Fulham have remained unbeaten since then.

They are currently fourth in the table with five points from a possible nine after another draw at Wolves last weekend.
