Chelsea have won their first Premier League match under Frank Lampard after defeating Nowrich 3-1. They have now joined Manchester United and Tottenham on four points after both teams dropped points.
The young Tammy Abraham scored two great goals for the Blues against Nowich, securing their first win of the season. Mount was also on the scoresheet and is now a regular goal-scorer. Lampard’s faith in his youngsters has paid off!
Their win came at just the right time, after all, United was defeated at home by Crystal Palace. Despite all the chances the Reds had, it was J Ayew that gave Palace the lead in the first half.
United were awarded a penalty in this match – a decision that now seems commonplace – but again it was missed, this time by Rashford! James did manage to equalise for them in the 89th minute of the match but luck was not on their side: they conceded another goal in extra time!
Arsenal also lost painfully against Liverpool. They were defeated 3-1 at Anfield; playing from the back meant that Arsenal were unable to withstand the pressing nature Liverpool’s game. Matip and Salah (2) both scored goals for their team.
Tottenham also lost their match, due to a single goal from Newcastle most expensive signing, Joelinton. This was Steve Bruce’s first win as Newcastle manager.
Manchester City now seen to be the main team chasing Liverpool down. They defeated Bournemoth 3-1 with two goals from Aguero and one from Sterling. These champions are just as strong as they were last season.
It will not be an easy ride for any of the teams this year, with the completion being so fierce. Liverpool are leading the race at the moment, but this might not be for much longer.
