PL round-up: Wins for Man City, Leicester, Arsenal & WBA

Manchester City made it five wins from five in the Premier League this season with an emphatic 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

City have now won all eight games played under new boss Pep Guardiola, racking up 25 goals in the process, after demolishing Eddie Howe's side at the Etihad Stadium.

The impressive Kevin de Bruyne gave City the lead on 15 minutes with a low free-kick under the wall, following Jack Wilshere's foul on Nolito.

Kelechi Iheanacho doubled the score from Raheem Sterling's cross following a quick City break ten minutes later, and the England winger netted the third on 48 minutes from Iheanacho's pass to make it 3-0, before Ilkay Gundogan completed the scoring from an inch-perfect de Bruyne pass midway through the second half.

City then had Nolito sent off late on for an attempted headbutt on Adam Smith.

Arsenal move up to second place in the Premier League table on goal difference from Everton, who take on Middlesbrough in the late game, after a convincing 4-1 win over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez scored twice and missed a penalty against the ten men of Hull, who had Jake Livermore sent off after a handball in the area.

The Chile international opened the scoring rather fortuitously on 17 minutes, after Alex Iwobi's shot deflected off him following a mistake by Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic.

Theo Walcott made it 2-0 ten minutes into the second half with a fine chipped finish from Iwobi's backheel, before Robert Snodgrass pulled one back for the hosts with a penalty, following Petr Cech's foul on Ryan Mason.

Sanchez netted the third with a rebound on 83 minutes after Jakupovic had saved Walcott's shot, before Granit Xhaka rounded off the scoring in injury-time with a brilliant 35-yard swerving effort.

Leicester City's record signing Islam Slimani netted twice on his Premier League debut as the champions beat Burnley 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.

The Algerian opened the scoring just before the break with a header from Christian Fuchs' free-kick. and made it 2-0 three minutes after the break from close range by bundling home Jamie Vardy's initial blocked effort.

Ben Mee then got his feet in a mess to divert Riyad Mahrez's cross into his own net for Leicester's third, on 79 minutes.

West Bromwich Albion's record signing Nacer Chadli netted twice, as the Baggies beat West Ham 4-2 at the Hawthorns.

Chadli opened the scoring with a penalty in the eighth minute following Arthur Masuaku's handball in the box, and the Belgian created the second in the 37th minute with his pass to Salomon Rondon.

James McClean made it 3-0 on 44 minutes when he diverted Chadli's shot past West Ham goalkeeper Adrian, and then the £13m signing made it two goals and two assists in 56 minutes when he netted from Rondon's pass.

Michail Antonio netted his fifth league goal of the season on the hour mark from Dimitri Payet's cross, before Manuel Lanzini 's 65th minute penalty, awarded for Brendan Galloway's clip on Payet, gave the visiting fans hope.

But Tony Pulis' side held on to take the three points that lift the West Midlands side up to eighth place in the Premier League table. West Ham, who conceded four goals for a second successive week, lie in 17th place.
