At Watford, having fallen behind to Abdoulaye Doucoure's 54th minute own goal, Watford responded impressively, recovering to claim the points through headers from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart.

"I want to apologise once again and thank you all for your support". I think in a couple of weeks we are playing Liverpool [at Stamford Bridge], a massive game. "It is so painful to concede two goals like this, it is so painful because the first half looked like a friendly game", Pochettino was quoted by Football.London as saying at post-match.

"I am not really interested in records but I am happy for the boys, for the team and for the whole club that we won today".

It is the first time since 1988 that the Hornets have won their first four matches - and the victory delighted the pop star and lifelong Watford supporter.

When does the Premier League return?

Chelsea also had a far from easy afternoon against previously winless Bournemouth but second half goals from Pedro and Eden Hazard secured the points for Maurizio Sarri's men, meaning the Blues go into the worldwide break with maximum points from their four games played.

Pochettino felt particularly let down because he said he told the players to be aggressive from the start and did not believe they followed that advice.

And speaking after the game, Pochettino said Tottenham would not challenge for the Premier League title this season if they continued to defend in such a way.

"We need to show more respect to this competition. It's about being strong and showing that character and mentality to say, 'It's impossible that the opponent is going to score'".

"I accept that because it's the reality", Pochettino said.

United's French worldwide Paul Pogba had a 69th-minute penalty saved by Burnley's former Manchester City keeper Joe Hart but despite the red card Mourinho's side hung on comfortably for their second win of the season. "That is good for us and four wins in a row, I am not sure it has ever happened here", Holebas said. We showed that against Newcastle and Fulham and at Old Trafford. We can rest a bit some players.

The best chance came in the 12th minute with Dele Alli latching onto a long pass from Toby Alderweireld, but the England international's looping header went just over Ben Foster's crossbar.
