Saturday's North London derby offered a reminder of Arsenal's ability to mix it with the division's top teams as Arsene Wenger's side pulled to within one point of fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Meanwhile, a Paul Pogba-inspired win over Newcastle kept Manchester United in second place behind the seemingly unstoppable Manchester City, who stretched their unbeaten start to the season with victory at Leicester City.

There were also wins for Liverpool at Anfield - where Mohamed Salah earned himself a club record - and Bournemouth, that saw one of the feelgood stories of the weekend as Callum Wilson scored a hat-trick following a lengthy injury layoff.

Jon Turner, Steve Luckings and John McAuley discuss all of the big news from the Premier League and are joined on the phone by Andy Mitten who witnessed United's win at Old Trafford.
