Arsenal and Leicester pick up first wins, Chelsea thrash Burnley

28 August 2016, 08:24 | Kristine Mills

One man who is yet confirm that is England manager Sam Allardyce, who said it will be hard to pick him if he isn't playing for United.

Victor Moses entered the fray as a substitute and added gloss to the result with a goal late on.

The Gunners took an early lead from the spot through Santi Cazorla after Nordin Amrabat clouted Alexis Sanchez with his elbow as the pair challenged for Mesut Ozil's lofted ball.

Elsewhere, Arsenal will be looking for their first win of the season when they travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. Newly-promoted Hull City, for instance, along with West Bromwich Albion, are "only' 1500/1 to win the title, with Watford, Burnley, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Swansea all at 1000/1; still generous odds, but a long way short of Leicester's starting price past year, and so the win by Claudio Ranieri's men has certainly reduced the amount of risk bookmakers are prepared to take".

Claudio Ranieri's side took the lead in the 32nd minute when Jamie Vardy finished off a typically efficient counter-attack from the champions and captain Wes Morgan lashed in the second in the 52nd minute.

Manchester United will also take on League One opposition as they face a trip to Northampton Town while holders Manchester City will take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

But Leroy Fer's 80th-minute goal for Swansea came too late to rescue a point for the visitors.

James Milner gave Liverpool a deserved lead with a penalty in the 43rd minute after Roberto Firmino went down under the slightest contact by Erik Lamela.

David Moyes secured his first point as Sunderland manager with a 1-1 draw at Southampton, but will have been disappointed not to have claimed all three at St Mary's.

After Ashley Williams had been brought down in the area by Phil Bardsley, Leighton Baines scuffed his 51st-minute penalty, but saw it come back off the post, hit goalkeeper Shay Given and cross the line.
