All the top teams won their Premier League match this weekend except for Manchester City. Manchester City had previously been at the top of the table but, after a difficult game against Chelsea, they lost their position.
Liverpool thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 to take first position on the PL table. Salah netted a hat-trick, which was complimented by an own goal from Cook. This took the Reds to 42 points, one point above Man City who still had a game in hand.
For the Gunners, a single goal from Torreira in the 83rd minute secured their victory against Huddersfield. This momentarily pushed them to third place, while Chelsea and Tottenham still had a game in hand.
Chelsea defeated a confident Manchester City 2-0. Despite how hard Guardiola’s team pressed, the first half of the match ended with a stunning goal from Kante. The Blues then secured their victory when David Luiz doubled their lead in the 78th minute.
This meant the end of City’s unbeaten run and the inability for them to reclaim top spot on the Premier League table; whereas Chelsea went back above Arsenal on goal difference after levelling with them on points.
However, it is Tottenham that now holds third place, above the two London giants, after defeating Leicester 2-0. Goals from Son Heung-Min and Alli helped everyone to forget all about Spurs’ recent defeat against Arsenal.
Manchester United have tried to remain hovering around the top six. They thankfully managed to defeat Fulham 4-1.
The Premier League table has a new leader. Who knows what this could mean for the fate of the title.
