A 9-0 win, equaling the record for the biggest-ever victory in the Premier League, sends a loud message indeed.

Liverpool blew away Bournemouth at Anfield to put its early-season struggles behind it, with Roberto Firmino scoring two goals and setting up three more.

Manchester City also showed that it can never be counted out after the defending champion found itself trailing by two goals for the second straight game.

Erling Haaland netted a second-half hat trick as City rallied to beat Crystal Palace 4-2 at home — having only managed to salvage a 3-3 draw at Newcastle last weekend.

Manchester United made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since February by beating Southampton 1-0 away thanks to a second-half goal by Bruno Fernandes.
