England international Daniel Sturridge flicked in a fourth-minute header in Liverpool's gritty victory over United at Anfield, putting his team top of the standings on a maximum nine points.

France striker Olivier Giroud also grabbed his third goal in as many games, settling the north London derby at Emirates Stadium against a Tottenham side that has spent more than 100 million pounds this summer but still hasn't scored in open play.

Swansea won 2-0 at West Bromwich Albion in Sunday's other game thanks to goals by Ben Davies and Pablo Hernandez.
