Weekend Football Review

Some interesting results.

Premier League MW 9

Bournemouth 0 vs. 0 Southampton

A boring draw between the two sides as no team really took advantage of the opportunities presented to them. The result means that Bournemouth remain 6th while Southampton are 16th. 

Cardiff City 4 vs. 2 Fulham

An exciting clash in Wales led to Cardiff getting their first win of the season against Fulham. Schurrle opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a brilliant long range effort but Murphy equalised four minutes later. Bobby Reid then gave Cardiff the lead in the 20th minute but a Sessegnon goal in the 34th minute meant that the two sides went into half time level. Two goals in the second half from Paterson and Harris meant that Cardiff achieved three points for the first time this season. Cardiff move out of the relegation zone into 16th while Fulham drop down to 17th as Jokanovic begins to feel pressure. 

Man City 5 vs. 0 Burnley

Man City were their usual selves as they thrashed Burnley 5-0 at home. Aguero started the proceedings off in the 17th minute and Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Mahrez, and Sane added the rest in the second half. City increase their goal difference to +10 as they remain top of the league while Burnley drop down to 13th. 

Newcastle 0 vs. 1 Brighton

Newcastle moved to the bottom of the league as a Kayal goal in the 29th minute meant that they remained winless this season. Brighton moved to 12th with the win while Benitez now begins to feel the pressure as Newcastle are not being able to win the winnable games. 

West Ham 0 vs. 1 Tottenham

A Lamela goal in the 44th minute meant that Tottenham got the three points to remain 5th in the league. West Ham played well but failed to convert any chances and so drop down to 14th. 

Wolverhampton 0 vs. 2 Watford

Watford returned to form in an surprising win against Wolves. Goal from Capoue and Pereyra in the 20 and 21st minute proved enough on the day. Wolves could not reply and their ascendancy in the table was brought to a halt. Wolves drop down to 9th with the loss while Watford move into 7th. 

Huddersfield 0 vs. 1 Liverpool

Salah managed to score a goal in the 24th minute to give three points to Liverpool and keep them level with City at the top. Huddersfield played well but Alisson made some good saves. Huddersfield remain winless and 19th while Liverpool remain 2nd. 

Everton 2 vs. 0 Crystal Palace

Two late goals in the final five minutes from Calvert-Lewin and Tosun gave Everton a proper victory against Palace. Everton moved to 8th with the win while Palace drop down to 15th with a tough set of fixtures upcoming. 

Arsenal 3 vs. 1 Leicester

Arsenal continued their winning run with a late victory against Leicester. Leicester had the better of the first half and gained the lead via an own goal from Bellerin. Arsenal rallied in the second half thanks to an Ozil goal right before half time. Aubameyang came off the bench for a quick fire double to seal the points for the gunners. Arsenal remain fourth level on points with Chelsea and Tottenham while Leicester drop down to 11th.
