GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Kehrer 34og)

Spurs lead! Having given away a penalty at the weekend, Thilo Kehrer’s nightmare start to his sojourn at West Ham continues as he turns a cross into his own net, denying Heung-min Son, who was loitering with intent behind him. FYI: this game kicked off three minutes late and we’ve had a VAR check that lasted at least as long.

Liverpool 0-0 Newcastle: A disappointingly and perhaps surprisingly drab affair has yet to spark into life. Never mind, it’s still reasonably early doors.

Arsenal excellent but don’t Villa look terrible – no ideas, can’t defend, can’t attack, can’t pass, any aggression only manifests itself in silly cheap fouls. Can’t really see them stepping up too many gears either.

Manchester City 3-0 Nottingham Forest: Julian Alvarez, whose outstanding first half performance will be completely overshadowed by You Know Who tomorrow, takes a shot from distance and hits the foot of the left upright.

Transfer latest: Having wrapped up the signing of Wesley Fofana from Leicester City today, Chelsea have bid £43m for Ajax’s Mexican midfielder Edson Alvarez.

West Hamn 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Michail Antonio rattles the woodwork with a shot and Spurs survive a scare.

GOAL! Manchester City 3-0 Nottingham Forest (Haaland 38)

It’s three for Haaland! The 22-year-old scores his 14th career hat-trick, nodding home a header across the face of goal from about a yard out after City had recycled the ball from a half-cleared corner. #thatmanagain

Liverpool 0-0 Newcastle: The evening’s latest kick-off is under way and there’s been a break in play for Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope to receive treatment for an injury.

No penalty for Tottenham!

Denied! After a very, very lengthy VAR check including a trip to the pitchside monitor, referee Peter Bankes finally overturns his decision to award Spurs a spot-kick.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Aston Villa (Jesus 30)

Arsenal lead. Defending a cross, Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez pushes the ball into the path of Gabriel Jesus, who slots home.

Penalty for Tottenham Hotspur?

West Ham 0-0 Tottenham: Standing two yards away from Harry Kane, Aaron Cresswell handles the striker’s header and Spurs get a penalty. Or do they? There’s a VAR check.

GOAL! Manchester CIty 2-0 Nottingham Forest (Haaland 23)

That man again, etc and so on. Erling Haaland scores his eighth goal of the season with a tap-in from close range after Phil Foden sqaures the ball to him on the edge of the six-yard box. Eight goals in August is the highest number scored by any player in Premier League history.

Manchester City 1-0 Nottingham Forest: Renan Lodi heads wide from a tight angle for Forest at the far post when he should probably have headed across the face of goal. Moments previously, he was played in behind by Morgan Gibbs-White, only to be shepherded wide by Ederson before he could unleash a shot.

GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 Nottingham Forest (Haaland 12)

Sound the “that man again” klaxon! Erling Haaland scores his seventh goal in five appearances, getting in front of his man at the near post to prod home a Phil Foden cross from close range.

Bournemouth 0-0 Wolves: Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunez hits the angle of cross-bar and upright with a right-footed effort. Bournemouth survive.

Arsenal 0-0 Aston Villa: Villa survive a VAR check for a spot-kick after Tyrone Mings appears to bring Bukayo Saka down in the Villa penalty area. It’s not given.

Manchester City 0-0 Nottingham Forest: Just seven minutes in and Forest are already seriously under the Manchester City cosh. The Premier League champions are laying siege to the visitors’ goal.

Arsenal 0-0 Aston Villa: An early scare for Arsenal as Gabriel Jesus falls awkwardly after a collision with Lucas Digne and stays down for a while. Not to worry, Gooners – he’s back on his feet and gadding about the Emirates sward again.

Arsenal v Aston Villa: Arsenal make one change, with Sambi Lokonga coming in for Mohamed Elneny, who has been sidelined indefinitely with what the club have described as a “significant” injury.

Steven Gerrard still has no idea what his best Aston VIlla side is and makes four changes. Tyrone Mings returns from illness, while Emi Buendia and Leon Bailey both start. Philippe Coutinho is on the bench.

Manchester City v Nottingham Forest: Manchester City make two changes for the visit of Nottingham Forest. Julian Alvarez gets his first Premier League start while Kenin De Bruyne drops to the bench as Ilkay Gundogan comes into the side. Forest, making a first league visit to City since 2002, give Renan Lodi a debut in one of three changes, with Cheikhou Kouyate and Remo Freuler also picked to start.

Bournemouth v Wolves: Somewhat harshly, in my humble opinion, Bournemouth caretaker boss Gary O’Neil has dropped goalkeeper Mark Travers and gives a Premier League debut to summer signing Neto for the visit of Wolves following Saturday’s 9-0 drubbing at Liverpool.

O’Neil, who was placed in temporary charge of Bournemouth after Scott Parker was sacked on Monday, also brings in captain Lloyd Kelly, midfielder Philip Billing and striker Dominic Solanke. Still without a win to their name this season, Wolves are unchanged following Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

Midweek Premier League clockwatch

Welcome one and all. As the top flight continues to take shape, we’ll be across five different matches tonight with table-toppers Arsenal hosting already beleaguered Aston Villa in one of the three 7.30pm (BST) kick-offs. In the others, managerless Bournemouth welcome Wolves to the Vitality Stadium, while Manchester City entertain Nottingham Forest at the Etihad.

The London Stadium is the venue for West Ham’s London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, while Liverpool host Newcastle United at Anfield in what might be the pick of the fixtures. For all his good work since taking over at Newcastle, Eddie Howe’s record against Big Six clubs have not been great (P9 W1 D2 L6) and his side will need to start taking points from these teams with more regularity if they are to challenge for European places. With these staggered kick-off times a clock-watcher’s dream, stay tuned for team news and build-up.
