What a weekend of football!
Premier League MW 14
Cardiff City 2 vs. 1 Wolverhampton
Doherty gave Wolves an early lead but Cardiff rallied in the second half and goals from Gunnarsson and Hoilett completed the comeback in the 77th minute. Cardiff climb up to 16th in the table while Wolves drop into 12th. Wolves are going through a poor patch of form and with Chelsea up next it probably wont stop anytime soon.
Crystal Palace 2 vs. 0 Burnley
McArthur scored in the first half and Townsend scored in the second to seal three important points for the Eagles at home. Palace climbed up to 14th with the win while dropped into the relegation zone as they are 19th. Burnley had been decent but Palace should great defensive grit to hold on and win the game.
Huddersfield 1 vs. 2 Brighton
Zanka scored in the first minute of the game and Duffy scored in the last minute of the first half to equalise for Brighton. Andone got his first goal for Brighton as he scored the winner in the 69th minute. Huddersfield had momentum going into the game but their loss means that they drop into 17th while Brighton climb up to 11th.
Leicester 2 vs. 0 Watford
Vardy and Maddison scored in the first half to seal three points for Leicester at home. It was a six pointer and Watford did not show up for the game. Leicester climb up to 8th with the win while Watford drop down into 10th.
Man City 3 vs. 1 Bournemouth
Bernardo Silva opened the scoring for City in the 16th minute, but Wilson scored in the 44th minute to equalise for Bournemouth. Bournemouth had played well in the first half but City shifted into another gear and goal from Sterling and Gundogan in the second half continued City’s winning run. City remain top of the table while Bournemouth drop into 9th.
Newcastle 0 vs. 3 West Ham
Newcastle had been on a great run but it came to a crashing end as West Ham comfortably disposed of them. Hernandez scored in either half and Anderson added a late third to seal a much needed win for the hammers. Newcastle drop into 15th with the loss while West Ham move into 13th with the win.
Southampton 2 vs. 2 Man United
Armstrong and Soares scored within 20 minutes to give Southampton a surprising two goal lead in the first half. Lukaku and Herrera though scored before the 40 minute mark to bring United back into the game. The second half was largely poor as neither team was able to take advantage of each others weaknesses. Mark Hughes was sacked as manager of Southampton as he became the first premier league manager to be sacked by two clubs in a calendar year. Mourinho continues to coast in his job as United remain 7th while Southampton remain 18th.
Arsenal 4 vs. 2 Tottenham
The game of the weekend came on Sunday as Arsenal turned to a new chapter in their book by thrashing Tottenham. Aubameyang opened the scoring in the 10th minute via the penalty spot as Arsenal dominated the opening minutes of the game. Dier scored in the 30th minute to equalise for Tottenham in a goal that was largely Leno’s fault. Tottenham began to dominate the game and Kane gave Tottenham the lead via the penalty spot in the 34th minute. Emery brought on Ramsey and Lacazette at half time and the substitutions worked as Arsenal dominated the game once again. Aubameyang equalised for Arsenal in the 56th minute via a brilliant shot. Lacazette then gave Arsenal the lead in the 74th minute and Torreira finished the game off in the 77th minute. Vertonghen was sent off in the 85th minute as Tottenham were beaten. Arsenal continue their unbeaten run as they move into a familiar 4th while Tottenham go from high to low as they drop down into 5th.
Liverpool 1 vs. 0 Everton
The Merseyside Derby was a stale affair but it did seem to be heading for a silver lining as Liverpool looked like they would drop points but Liverpool through sheer fluke got the winner in the 96th minute via Divock Origi who literally came out of the blue. Liverpool continued to remain on City’s tail as they sit 2nd while Everton remain 6th in the table.
