An interesting week of football!
Premier League MW 11

United continued their recovery this season as they came from behind to beat Bournemouth in extra time. Callum Wilson gave Bournemouth the lead in the 11th minute as they dominated play but missed several chances to inflict more damage on United. Martial then continued his scoring run by equalising in the 35th minute. The game seemed to be heading for a draw but Rashford popped up to seal three points for United in the 92nd minute. Bournemouth remain 6th while United move up to 7th only behind on goal difference.
Cardiff City 0 vs. 1 Leicester

Everton 3 vs. 1 Brighton

Newcastle 1 vs. 0 Watford
Newcastle surprisingly got their first win of the season against high flying Watford thanks to a goal from Perez in the 65th minute. The win does Newcastle a great deal of good as they move out of the relegation zone and into 17th while Watford drop down to 8th.
West Ham 4 vs. 2 Burnley
Burnley continued their poor form with another thumping loss against West Ham in London. Arnautovic scored in the 10th minute to give West Ham the lead but Gudmundsson equalised right before half time to bring Burnley back into the game.

Arsenal 1 vs. 1 Liverpool
In the clash of the weekend Arsenal and Liverpool played out a brilliant game and shared the points at the Emirates. Milner had given Liverpool the lead in the 61st minute but Lacazette equalised in the 82nd minute. Arsenal gave a good account of themselves during the game and were perhaps unlucky to only manage a point against Liverpool. Arsenal though drop down to 5th while Liverpool drop down to 3rd.
Wolverhampton 2 vs. 3 Tottenham
Wolves narrowly lost to Tottenham in the late game on Saturday. Lamela, Moura and Kane scored during the first and second half to give Tottenham a clear lead in 61 minutes but Wolves fought back with two penalties as Neves, and Jiminez scored late on. Tottenham moved into 4th with the win while Wolves dropped down into 11th continuing their poor run of form.
Man City 6 vs. 1 Southampton
City did what City do best as they thrashed Southampton at the Etihad with Sterling running the show. Hoedt kicked things off for City as he scored an own goal in the 6th minute to give them the lead, Aguero and David Silva then scored in quick succession but Ings brought one back in the 29th minute. Sterling then added two more and Sane finished Southampton off. City remained top of the table but are now two points clear while Southampton are now 16th.
Huddersfield 1 vs. 0 Fulham
