Two goals in five minutes turned the game  right around  as United took control of the clash at Old Trafford to win 2-1

Arshavin got the first with a beauty of a goal he turned into space before firing a crisp powerful drive into the united net.

Though Foster may feel he could have done better with the goal, he kept United in the game in the early moments of the second half when flicking out a foot to deny Robin van Persie from close range.

Manuel Almunia then allowed the hosts to draw level on 59 minutes as he brought down Rooney in the box and the United striker stepped up to send the Spaniard the wrong way from the spot.

Van Persie curled a free-kick from near the right touchline against Foster’s crossbar on 63 minutes and just 60 seconds later United struck decisively.

Giggs then sent in a free-kick from the right and Diaby, under no pressure from a United player, headed  past the helpless Almunia.

Dimitar Berbatov and Nani both wasted golden chances to settle any late nerves before Arsene Wenger was sent to the stands after Arsenal saw a goal ruled out deep into extra time.

Chelsea kept there 100% unbeaten run with a 3-0 win over Burnley

Jensen had already denied Michael Ballack, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Deco when the Blues finally broke the deadlock through Nicolas Anelka, who later had a goal disallowed.

Chelsea piled more misery on the Clarets through Ballack’s header and Ashley Cole’s powerful finish.

Bolton 2 Liverpool 3

Steven Gerrard was Liverpool’s hero again as they twice came from behind.

Kevin Davies scored the opener after Johan Elmander nodded down Matt Taylor’s corner but Glen Johnson cut in to equalise left-footed .

Tamir Cohen smashed Bolton in front again but Sean Davis collected a second booking and Fernando Torres levelled before Gerrard thumped in a trademark late winner

Tottenham 2 Birmingham 1

Aaron Lennon grabbed a dramatic late winner as Spurs’ good start continued.

Spurs had the better of the game, with Stephen Carr blocking Lennon’s effort and Jermain Defoe missing two good chances, before sub Peter Crouch headed in Tom Huddlestone’s free-kick .

City were quickly level as Lee Bowyer seized on a defensive mix-up but Lennon cut inside two defenders to win it in the fifth minute of injury time.

Stoke 1 Sunderland 0

Striker Dave Kitson notched his first league goal for the Potters to give them a second victory of the season.

Abdoulaye Faye might have put the hosts ahead but fired wide from close range and Kitson had an effort blocked before he broke the deadlock with a volley after a weak Kenwyne Jones header .

Sunderland rarely threatened and Ricardo Fuller should have added a second but screwed a shot wide.

Blackburn 0 West Ham 0

Blackburn are still looking for their first league win of the season after a lacklustre goalless draw.

Neither side was able to create a clear chance in the first half, although Keith Andrews headed over for the hosts from Morten Gamst Pedersen’s corner.

Carlton Cole was just wide with a curling 20-yard effort for the Hammers, while James Collins blasted over from Mark Noble’s corner kick.
Everton 2 Wigan 1
Leighton BainesLeighton Baines drilled in a stoppage time penalty as Everton claimed their first points of the new season.

Jo was fouled in the area by Emmerson Boyce and left-back Baines smashed the penalty past Mike Pollitt.

Wigan had snatched the lead when Paul Scharner was left unmarked to head in at the far post and Jordi Gomez hit an Everton upright before Louis Saha headed in a Baines corner

Portsmouth 0 Man City 1
Emmanuel Adebayor sealed a narrow win for City against a dogged Portsmouth.
The striker headed home a cross from fellow new-boy Gareth Barry , while Micah Richards, who later limped off, had a ‘goal’ ruled out for offside.

At the other end, Frederic Piquionne, Younes Kaboul, Richard Hughes and John Utaka shot off target. Sub David Nugent was denied by Shay Given late on before Pompey survived two penalty claims.

Aston Villa 2 Fulham 0
Goals John Pantsil and Gabriel Agonlahor’s second-half strike guided Aston Villa to their first home Premier League win of the season.

Villa manager Martin O’Neill was under pressure after his side’s exit from the Europa League in midweek but his men responded well with a dominant display.

Pantsil headed into his own net before Agbonlahor hit a superb drilled shot from the edge of the area.
