Manchester United vs Arsenal (1-0 Arsenal)
Manchester United were clearly the favourites to win the game as Arsenal hadn’t won a game at Old Trafford since 2006. However owing to the unpredictability, Arsenal defeated Manchester United this past Sunday at Old Trafford. Star striker Aubameyang converted a penalty which also ended his 5 games dry spell without a goal. New Arsenal signing Thomas Partey was impeccable in the midfield as this defeat has left United at an unacceptable 15th position after 6 games.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton and Hove Albion (2-1 Spurs)
This was a tough game for the Spurs as they barely secured a victory via a decisive header from Gareth Bale. Harry Kane and Lamptey scored one each for Spurs and Brighton respectively. Both the teams were evenly matched for most of the game until the 70th minute when Jose Mourinho had subbed in Gareth Bale. This was Gareth Bale’s first goal in his new spell for Tottenham Hotspur.
Aston Villa vs Southampton ( 4-3 Southampton)
English midfielder James Ward-Prowse scored two sensational free kicks against Aston Villa as they won the game 4-3. This victory saw the Saints go up to third in the Premier League table. Southampton scored four in the first half but an inspired Aston Villa in the 2nd half almost made the comeback scoring 3 goals in the process. It has been two consecutive defeats for Dean Smith’s side in three games after their 7-2 thrashing of Liverpool.
Everton vs Newcastle (2-1 Newcastle)
For the second consecutive Sunday, Everton dropped points, owing to an inspired performance from the Newcastle side. Without James Rodriguez, Everton lacked the vision and cutting edge that James had been providing them with. The victory puts Newcastle at 10th position already 10 points ahead of the relegation zone and inspite of the defeat Everton stay at 2nd position.
