Burnley 2-0 Crystal Palace

Sam Vokes has a goal and an assist as Burnley caught Palace’s disorganized defense twice in the first 15 minutes. Johann Berg Gudmundsson scored the other Clarets goal.

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Dan Gosling darted between two Sunderland defenders to belt a redirect an Adam Smith shot beyond Black Cats keeper Jordan Pickford. But the visitors leveled through Victor Anichebe’s first Premier League goal in 18 months. Sunderland’s Duncan Watmore had a goal called back for offside just before the break.

West Ham United 0-0 Stoke City

No Geoff Cameron for the Potters, and not much action at the Olympic Stadium.

Manchester City 1-0 Middlesbrough

Pep Guardiola’s crew has doubtless control of the match, but Boro keeper Victor Valdes has limited the damage. The only goal came through Sergio Aguero, whose well-timed run met Kevin De Bruyne’s cross just outside the six.

Jesus Navas caught Valdes with a wayward cleat before the end of the half, opening up a nasty wound that delayed the game.
