Twitter reacts to Premier League matchweek three

The 2016/17 Premier League has only been back for three weeks, but already there has been many memorable goals and plenty of thrills and spills across England’s enthralling top-flight division.

Following further excitement and late strikes in the top tier, Coral sum up the action for punters through the magic of social media, by compiling the best images, videos and comments from Twitter over the weekend.

So, as Twitter reacts to Premier League matchweek three drama, Coral bring you best of the online frenzy over the weekend…

Hull City 0-1 Man Utd

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United looked to be heading for a frustrating goalless draw with hosts Hull City, but teenage sensation Marcus Rashford was the late hero after firing in from close-range to hand his side three points.

Red Devils left back Luke Shaw enjoyed the winner as much as anyone…

Eric Bailly was again voted as Man of the Match, as the Ivorian defender maintains his impressive form in the heart of the Man Utd rearguard since arriving from Villarreal. Despite his strong showing, this was many fans’ favourite moment from the centre back…

Many agreed that Man Utd looked far more of a threat going forward once Mkhitaryan was introduced, and the the Armenia attacker may have earned himself a starting spot for the upcoming Manchester derby…

The master and the apprentice?

Not a bad frontline for Mourinho…

Marouane Fellaini halted his celebrations to give a fan a helping hand…

Spurs 1-1 Liverpool

In Saturday’s early kick-off, Liverpool took to White Hart Lane with very little to fear, having enjoyed an encouraging fixture run beforehand…

Danny Rose was on target for the hosts, after James Milner had tucked home from the penalty spot…

Not too shabby for Milner…

A new chant soon to be heard around Anfield? Maybe not.

It was Roberto Firmino that won the spot kick, but many Spurs fans were angered at the decision. What do you think?

There were some handbags during the clash too…

Chelsea 3-0 Burnley

Chelsea rallied to a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Burnley, with Eden Hazard continuing his rejuvenation after a woeful last season…

Hazard’s incredible goal can be viewed in our latest Weekend Worldies, with the Belgium international having picked the ball up on the halfway line, before gliding forward and clinically firing home…

Coral ambassador Alan Shearer believes Chelsea’s in-form forward is back to his best this campaign, after stuttering last term…

Victor Moses was also on the scoresheet, with his first Premier League goal for Chelsea since November 2012…

Crystal Palace 1-1 Bournemouth

Elsewhere, Scott Dann continued his impressive scoring run from the back, netting in the 1-1 draw with the Cherries. Was England boss Sam Allardyce watching?

Everton 1-0 Stoke City

Republic of Ireland shot stopper Shay Given was the victim of a huge slice of misfortune against Everton, as seen below…

The Match of the Day panel had a good old laugh at the Irishman’s expense, including our very own Alan Shearer, and he wasn’t best pleased…

Leicester 2-1 Swansea City

Jamie Vardy finally got off the mark for the new season in a narrow win for the champions, and Gary Lineker was maybe getting a little bit ahead of himself…

Southampton 1-1 Sunderland

It was a day to remember for Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez..

Watford 1-3 Arsenal

The Gunners got the job done in Watford, with a routine win coming thanks to some great attacking play…
