Last Updated: 06/10/18 10:30pm
Jose Mourinho's Manchester United fought back to beat Newcastle after a horror start, Tottenham beat 10-man Cardiff and Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a stunner for Everton in a 2-1 win over Leicester... here's what happened in the Premier League on Saturday.
Manchester United fell 2-0 behind as early as the 10th minute after goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto for the visitors, who still haven't won in the league this season.
But Juan Mata pulled a goal back in the 70th minute with a fine free-kick, Anthony Martial equalised six minutes later and Alexis Sanchez scored in the 90th minute to end United's run of four games without a win.
Victory saw United move up into eighth place in the table but still left them six points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who are away to Liverpool on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Tottenham bounced straight back from their Champions League defeat by Barcelona with a 1-0 win over 10-man Cardiff, who remain without a Premier League victory.
An early goal from Eric Dier settled any nerves, the England man scoring after eight minutes when Cardiff failed to clear a corner.
The visitors were reduced to 10 men just before the hour. Midfielder Joe Ralls felled Lucas Moura as the Brazilian looked to get clear down the wing, which resulted in a straight red card from referee Mike Dean.
Spurs now move up into third place - a point behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who play each other at Anfield on Sunday.

Sam Vokes headed the Clarets in front after 20 minutes from a free-kick, but the visitors equalised after 65 minutes when German defender Christopher Schindler headed past Joe Hart.
Bournemouth are up to fifth after cruising to a 4-0 victory at Watford, who saw defender Christian Kabasele sent off late in the first half.
The Cherries went in front on the counter-attack after 14 minutes when David Brooks netted a rebound after Callum Wilson's effort had been saved.
The Hornets' task was made more difficult after 33 minutes when Kabasele was sent off for a second caution after bringing down Joshua King in the penalty area.
Norwegian forward King took the spot-kick himself, calmly slotting past Ben Foster and he then headed home a third just before the break and it was 4-0 soon after the restart when Wilson tapped in from close range.
Wolves maintained their momentum with a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace, who lost a second Premier League game of the week.
The visitors, promoted back to the top flight this season, went ahead after 56 minutes through defender Matt Doherty.
Palace, beaten at home by Bournemouth on Monday night, saw efforts from Max Meyer and Wilfried Zaha saved by Rui Patricio.
Everton won 2-1 at Leicester, who finished with 10 men after captain Wes Morgan was sent off in the 63rd minute for a second caution after a tackle from behind on Richarlison.
Richarlison gave the visitors a seventh-minute lead after Bernard's cross was parried away by Kasper Schmeichel, but the home side equalised five minutes before half-time through Ricardo Pereira following a swift counter-attack.
Leicester were reduced to 10 men and could do little when Gylfi Sigurdsson fired the ball into the top corner with 13 minutes left with one of the goals of the season so far.
