Son Heung-min has scored a hat-trick as Ange Postecoglou's Tottenham secured a stunning 5-2 win at Burnley to maintain the Australian's unbeaten start as their manager.
The victory at Turf Moor took Spurs second in the Premier League, two points behind defending champions Manchester City whose 100 per cent start continued with a five-goal show of their own.
City beat Fulham 5-1 at home, also with a hat-trick, converted by Norwegian goal machine Erling Haaland.
Elsewhere on Saturday Nottingham Forest shocked Chelsea, winning 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, there was a third hat-trick, from Evan Ferguson, as Brighton beat Newcastle 3-1, and Sheffield United-Everton and Brentford-Bournemouth both ended 2-2.
Ange-ball flourished in the Lancashire cotton town of Burnley, whose most famous supporter is local boy James Anderson, the England cricketer.
Though Lyle Foster gave the Clarets an early lead Son soon levelled and Argentine defender Christian Romero put the visitors ahead in first-half injury-time.
Knowing Harry Kane was leaving just as he himself arrived Postecoglou signed James Maddison to add more goals from midfield. The England international delivered after 54 minutes. Son scored twice more in the next dozen minutes to confirm victory.
It was quite a statement given Tottenham signed Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest late Friday for £47m ($92m) and another striker, Richarlison, was only fit to start on the bench.
Haaland scored a second-half treble as City brushed off an equaliser by Tim Ream in the 33rd-minute that was sandwiched by goals for Julian Alvarez and Nathan Ake.
Forest made light of the loss of Johnson with Anthony Elanga, introduced at half-time after Danilo was injured, struck within three minutes. Chelsea, who have spent £1bn ($1.9bn) since the Todd Boehly-led takeover 15 months ago, now have four points for four matches, their worst start since 1995.
On the south coast Irish teenager Ferguson scored a tap-in, a 20-yarder, and a defected goal as Brighton dominated a Newcastle side that were lucky to score late on through Callum Wilson.
After three losses apiece Sheffield United and Everton were both relieved to have at least got off the mark with a lively draw at Bramall Lane.
After Abdoulaye Doucoure scrambled in Everton's first goal since the one he scored that secured Premier League safety in May, Cameron Archer, newly signed from Aston Villa for £18m ($35m), levelled with his first goal in the top flight.
The Blades then gained an own goal after Archer's shot cannoned off the post and in via Jordan Pickford's head. But, after Arnaut Danjuma equalised, the England goalkeeper made a superb injury-time triple save to preserve the point.
With Luton Town having lost at home on Friday night the draw ensured Everton, last before the weekend, would end the round off the bottom.
