Arsene Wenger suffered the familiar feeling of defeat to Mourinho’s Chelsea in a controversial match at the Stamford Bridge

The Gunners saw Gabriel controversially sent off in the first half,while Santi Cazorla saw red 10 minutes from time as the champions took the points courtesy of Kurt Zouma’s second-half header and a late deflected strike from Eden Hazard.

Diego Costa clashed with Laurent Koscielny.

Koscielny appeared to be caught in the face twice by two flailing arms from Costa, which prompted Gabriel to get involved and he was then dismissed for kicking out at the Chelsea man, whose provocation was far from subtle, and who was lucky not to see red himself.

The bitter rivals ( Wenger and Mourinho) shook hands in the moments before kick-off in a temporary truce to their feud.

Odion Ighalo struck twice to ensure that Newcastle remain without a win the Premier League after they were beaten 2-1 by Watford at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Daryl Janmaat reduced the deficit with a 67th-minute strike, the Magpies’ first goal in 464 minutes of Barclays Premier League football but it was not enough to rescue a point as they await their first win of the new campaign.

Kevin Mirallas saw red in added-time as Swansea and Everton shared an entertaining 0-0 draw in their Premier League clash at Liberty Stadium.

Mirallas, who had only been on the pitch for 112 seconds, received a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Modou Barrow.

Leicester underlined their lionhearted spirit by recovering from 2-0 down to claim a 2-2 draw against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

Goals from Bojan (13) and Jonathan Walters (20) had seemingly put Mark Hughes’ side into a commanding position going into the interval.

But Leicester – who last week recovered from 2-0 down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 – showed their determination not to be beat once again thanks to a Riyad Mahrez penalty (51) and a Jamie Vardy strike (69).

Saido Berahino showed why West Brom stood so firm to hang onto him this summer after scoring the winner in Albion’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park.

The England Under-21 striker was linked to a move to Tottenham in the summer transfer window, and threatened to go on strike after Albion rejected several bids for him.

Bournemouth won their first Premier League game at home – a result that saw Sunderland slip to bottom place.

The Black Cats are winless from from matches thus far.

Callum Wilson and Ritchie were on the scoresheet.

West Ham withstood a barrage of second-half pressure to condemn Manchester City to their first defeat of the Premier League season.

Goals from Victor Moses and Diafra Sakho got the Hammers off to a flying start at the Etihad Stadium and they held on for a 2-1 win after Kevin de Bruyne pulled one back.

It was another notable away victory for Slaven Bilic’s West Ham after securing wins at Arsenal and Liverpool already this season.

City won their first five Premier League games of the season — and a club record 11 in succession — but, coming after a Champions League loss in midweek, they made a sluggish start.

Chelsea 2 – 0 Arsenal

AFC Bournemouth 2 – 0 Sunderland

Aston Villa 0 – 1 West Bromwich Albion

Newcastle United 1 – 2 Watford

Stoke City 2 – 2 Leicester City

Swansea City 0 – 0 Everton

Manchester City 1 – 2 West Ham United
