Chelsea went ahead in the ninth minute of a frantic first half when Pedro buried a cross by Alonso.

Bournemouth completed the turnaround amid more weak defending from the home side, scoring their second goal in six minutes through Steve Cook's header.

Chelsea recovered from the shock of blowing a two-goal lead against Arsenal as Marcos Alonso's late strike sealed a 3-2 win, while Harry Kane ended his August hoodoo in Tottenham's 3-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday.

Chelsea had a great result and Arsenal's was disappointing.

Newcastle looked set to steal all three points when a penalty was awarded in added time, but Kenedy - who could have been sent off in the first half - couldn't capitalize as Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge saved his second penalty in as many league matches.

Pochettino said: 'I want players with commitment to the team. We lost distances, we were not able to recover immediately the lost ball, and we were not able to press in the other half as a team, only one or two players with the others too far away.

Kane saw his shot come back off the crossbar before England team-mate Kieran Trippier curled in a brilliant 25-yard free-kick after 74 minutes.

After the game Kane jokingly posted on social media, saying: 'Wish every game could be in August!'

Another England forward, Jamie Vardy, was shown a straight red card as 10-man Leicester held out to beat Wolves 2-0.

In stark contrast confidence at Bournemouth is sky high with the Premier League's longest-serving manager, Eddie Howe, leading his troops to maximum points from their opening two games.

The Foxes broke the deadlock after 29 minutes through an own goal from Wolves defender Matt Doherty. Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez are attacking threats.

A second successive Chelsea win under Maurizio Sarri, 3-2 over an Arsenal side which has suffered back-to-back defeats under Unai Emery, gave both new managers a crash course in the unpredictability of the Premier League.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring against his boyhood club afrer 15 minutes following a well-worked free-kick.

However, victory came at a cost for Leicester as England global Vardy was shown a straight red card 20 minutes from time for a late lunge on Doherty and now faces a three-game ban.
