Premier League Table after match day 6

Everton vs Liverpool. 0-0

Everton are still searching for their first win. However they should take some positives from this game as the search for their first win of the season continues.

Brentford vs Leeds United. 5-2

Brentford win their second game of the season. After going 2-0 up, they let Leeds into the game, but a red card for the visitors helped ensure that Brentford claimed all 3 points.

Chelsea vs WestHam United. 2-1

Chelsea didn’t play particularly well in this game and very lucky to have won it. Lacklustre defending put the host on the tightrope. Chelsea will have to improve if they even have to make top 4 this season. Disappointment for WestHam, they should have at least taking a point off this game.

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace. 0-0

Newcastle will be the less happier of the 2 sides. But the host should still be proud of theri performance. Good start to the season so far.

Nottingham Forest vs AFC Bournemouth. 2-3

Nottingham Forest lacking in confidence. After going 2-0 up, they let their visitors into the game. For the hosts, the premier league is hard.

Another 3 points for Tottenham, and they are marching on. The hosts are now 2nd on the league table for the meantime.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Southampton. 1-0

Wolves get their first win of the season. They were made to work hard for the win. Southampton on the other hand failed to follow up from their victory over Chelsea last time out.

Aston Villa vs ManchesterCity.  1-1

Manchester City have dropped points for the second time this season after this draw. The visitors paid for a host of missed chances. Manchester City remain second on the league table one point behind Arsenal who have a game in hand.

Brighton Hove Albion vs Leicester City. 5-2

Leicester City opened the scoring, but after that, the host fought back strong and eventually overpowered City. On Brighton’s day, Leicester City just couldn’t cope. City’s poor run continues. In Fact they are bottom of the table and winless after 6 games. Brighton are 4th.

Manchester United vs Arsenal. 3-1

This game was the first litmus test for Arsenal, and I won’t say Arsenal failed, but then, ita a derby and on United’s day their was nothing the visitor’s could do. Arsenal created several chances but United defended well. Superior tactical moves ensures Manchester United win their 4th straight game in 6. Arsenal remain top of the league despite the loss.

English Premier League. Match Day 4

English Premier League Table after Match day 4 matches

Southampton vs Manchester United 0-1.

Manchester United have now secured back to back victories after their first win of the season against Liverpool.

United are now settling down to business, they were very disciplined against Southampton, they took their chances and defended well, De Gea, the United’s goal keeper had a fine game as he made some nice saves to keep United’s 3 points.

Brentford vs Everton. 1-1

Everton couldn’t hold on for this win. They would be very disappointed to have conceeded 6 minutes from time. The search for their first win if the season continues.

Brighton Hove Albion vs Leeds United. 1-0

Leeds couldn’t follow up with their brilliant win against Chelsea last time out. Meanwhile, Brighton are having a brilliant run; their 3rd win in 4 games this season and are second on the table now behind Manchester City. The table will stay like this unless Arsenal beat Fulham later on today.

Chelsea vs Leicester United. 2-1

The problems at Chelsea still remain, but they managed to beat Leicester City to win their second game of the season. They did it with 10 men for over 62 minutes. Chelsea were very lucky Leicester didn’t steal a point. Just like in the game against Leeds, Chelsea again almost pressed the self-destruct button. They will really need to get their axes together and play disciplined football if they are to win anything this season.

Liverpool vs AFC Bournemouth. 9-0

This is Liverpool’s response to their loss against Manchester United last time out. If you think Liverpool can not fight for the title this season, then think again. Total demolition of Bournemouth, no Mercy!, Ruthless.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace. 4-2

Manchester City showed their champions stuff by coming from 2 goals down in the first half to win by 2 goals. Manchester City shamed their critics here, they thought they wouldn’t be able to come back. It’s City to beat this season.

Arsenal vs Fulham. 2-1

Arsenal’s winning streak continues. 4 wins from 4 matches and they are top of the league. They did it the hard way this time by coming from a goal down. Fulham almost got their point but couldn’t hold on.

Aston Villa vs WestHam United. 0-1

WestHam win their first game of the season thanks to a deflected shot that found its way into the net deep into the second half. Aston Villa, well, sorry for them, they became frustrated later in the game and their opponents took full advantage.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Newcastle United. 1-1

After all the hard work by Wolves, they ended up with a point instead of 3. They kept Newcastle in the game and paid the price.

English Premier League Match Day 3 Review

Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers. 1-0

I don’t think spurs deserved to win this game, but Conte is getting the results and that is what matters now. Another 3 points for them, nice win.

Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa. 3-1

After Villa Scored the first goal early on, it became their curse. Crystal Palace were ruthless in attack thanks to Wilfried Zaha’s brace, Game was done and dusted by the 71st minute. Aston Villa were simply not good enough.

Everton vs Nottingham Forest. 1-1

Everton are having problems, and Lampard’s job will soon be on the line if things don’t improve. Nottingham Forest fully deserved their draw in fact they should have won, but for lack of experience.

Fulham vs Brentford 3-2

Five goal thriller, what a game. Brentford came from 2 goals down, but it wasn’t enough. Fulham get their first 3 points of the season and into the champions league places.

Leicester City vs Southampton 1-2

A Thrilling encounter, Leicester City drew first blood, but a fine and complete comeback earned Southampton all 3 points. City’s poor form continues.

AFC Bournemouth vs Arsenal 0-3

Inform Arsenal simply outran Bournemouth. They are now topnof the table and they mean business.

Leeds United vs Chelsea. 3-0

Dismal performance from Chelsea Started by their goal keeper. After their disallowed first goal, it was all Leeds United. Chelsea’s weaknesses have been exposed, what next. Nice win for Leeds, they never gave Chelsea any breathing space. Leeds United up to 3rd on the table with 7 points.

WestHam United vs Brighton & Hove Albion. 0-2

Not WestHam’s day, the didn’t do enough to breakdown their opponents. Nice counter from the Brighton’s that lead to the second goal. Disciplined play from them too.

Newcastle vs Manchester City. 3-3

Brilliant play from Newcastle in this six goal thriller. Manchester City had to do the hard work of playing catch-up. Newcastle will be a team to watch out for this season. Draw for City means Arsenal will top the table after the conclusion of matchday 3.

Manchester United vs Liverpool 2-1

Derbies don’t disappoint, and this game wasn’t an exception. Manchester United may have lost their opening matches of the season coming to this one and they put up a fantastic show to win it. The morale is high in the United camp now. Game on
