LONDON (DPA) – Two of the Premier League's four perfect records bit the dust on Saturday as Manchester United and Leicester were held to draws.

United could only draw 0-0 at home with Newcastle while Leicester came from behind to draw 1-1 with Tottenham.

Callum Wilson scored a hat-trick as Bournemouth made history with their first ever Premier League points in a 4-3 win at West Ham.

Crystal Palace edged out Aston Villa 2-1 to move up to fourth while the other two matches also ended in draws, with Norwich v Stoke and Sunderland v Swansea both finishing 1-1.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney had the ball in the Newcastle net inside six minutes but it was ruled out for offside.

Aleksandr Mitrovic hit the woodwork for Newcastle but United were denied by several good saves from Tim Krul and could have won it late on when Chris Smalling hit the post.

"We can be satisfied with the performance but not with the result – we were unlucky," United manager Louis van Gaal said.

"We did not make the right choices in the final third but we played fantastic as a team. I like these kind of games when we work like this, but not this result.

"The performance was one of the best in my period but we don't reward ourselves and there was only one club that wanted to win and that was us."

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren, a former assistant manager at United, said he thought his side might have won it.

"We're disappointed," he said. "We knew the first 20 minutes would be theirs but we grew in belief and we should have scored.

"The defending and discipline was superb but we really could have nicked it – we had the chances but didn't take them."

Leicester joined United on seven points at the top after they drew 1-1 with Tottenham.

Riyad Mahrez, with his fourth goal of the season, equalized directly after Dele Alli had given Spurs an 81st minute lead.

Bournemouth were hanging on at the end but claimed a 4-3 win at West Ham to take their first ever Premier League points.

Wilson put them 2-0 up with two goals inside 28 minutes and though a Mark Noble penalty and a Cheikhou Kouyate goal made it 2-2, Mark Pugh and then a Wilson penalty restored Bournemouth's two-goal advantage.

But a Modibo Maiga strike pulled one back for West Ham and the visitors survived a few goalmouth scrambles at the end to claim victory.

"I'm over the moon, to start with three points and delighted for the team," Wilson said.

"We have showed people we can score goals in this league. That gets confidence in this team and hopefully we can pick up some more along the way."

Palace left it late to see off Villa 2-1, Bakary Sako winning it three minutes from time after Scott Dann's header had been wiped out by a Pape Souare own goal.


Norwich threw the kitchen sink at Stoke but the visitors held on for a 1-1 draw thanks to a string of outstanding saves from Jack Butland.

Mame Biram Diouf headed Stoke in front but Russell Martin found the equalizer for the hosts.

Swansea remain unbeaten after a 1-1 draw at Sunderland, Jermain Defoe earning a point for the home side after cancelling out Bafetimbi Gomis' opener.
