Andres Iniesta's serious knee injury overshadowed another stellar performance by Lionel Messi on Saturday, when the Barcelona forward scored a second goal in stoppage time to earn a 3-2 win at Valencia. The hotly contested game was marred both by Enzo Perez's tackle that forced Iniesta off on a stretcher and a fan throwing a water bottle at Barcelona's players while they celebrated Messi's winner. The bottle appeared to strike Neymar's head and also impact other Barcelona players when it was tossed into their tight huddl

Lacazette, who scored 48 league goals in the past two seasons, went some way to making up for his midweek penalty miss against Juventus by scoring from the spot near halftime. On Tuesday, his penalty was saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and the miss proved costly as Lyon lost 1-

Shaqiri lit up an otherwise ordinary game with two superb strikes in either half as Mark Hughes' side followed up last week's first league win of the season against Sunderland with its first league success away.

Lionel Messi scored a second goal with a stoppage-time penalty to give Barcelona a 3-2 league victory at Valencia on Saturday that was overshadowed by a serious knee injury to Andres Iniesta. Messi opened the scoring and had the last word of the wild match when he beat Diego Alves with a well-taken spot kick that slid just between the diving goalkeeper and the post. The hotly contested game was marred both by Enzo Perez's tackle that sent Iniesta off on a stretcher and a fan throwing a water bottle at Barcelona's players while they celebrated Messi's winne

Wenger had hoped to celebrate his 67th birthday with an eighth successive win in all competitions but the Gunners were frustrated in a goalless home draw with Middlesbrough.

(Reuters) - - Tottenham Hotspur continued their best start to a season for 26 years by maintaining their unbeaten Premier League record but were made to work hard for their point by buoyant Bournemouth in a full-blooded 0-0 draw on Saturday. Bournemouth, fresh from three successive league wins at Dean Court, took a leaf out of Spurs' famed pressing book to give as good as they got from the title contenders and were well worth the draw. Bournemouth's resistance ensured they missed chance to provisionally go top of the table ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal but it could have been worse for the visitors if Hugo Lloris had not made a fine early save to thwart Charlie Daniel

Spurs remain the only unbeaten team in the league after nine games but missed the chance to climb above Manchester City, which opened the weekend in first place.
