In the Premier League, there are no easy games. This is what Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United had to come to terms with this Sunday.
Arsenal’s lead against Cardiff was cancelled twice before Lacazette scored the winning goal in the 81st minute. The Gunners won the match 3-2, and many fans were happy to finally see Lacazette starting with Aubameyang.
Tottenham disappointingly failed to overcome their setbacks. Both Spurs and Wolves had won all three of their Premier League matches before their game against each other. That soon changed.
After an own goal gave Tottenham the lead in the second half, two goals from Deeney and Cathcart gave Wolves the win. Wolves are now sitting with Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the table with 12 points.
Manchester United, however, broke their run of losses after defeating Burnley 2-0. Lukaku scored both goals in the first half of the match. It was a game completely dominated by Mourinho’s team.
Despite this, there were a few hiccups. Rashford was sent off in the 71st minute and Pogba failed to convert a penalty. At the end of the day, United can only be pleased to have finally gained another 3 points.
Big teams who have started the season poorly are starting to rack up points; while those who started well are starting to feel the sting of defeat. Nothing is straightforward when it comes to football.
