Match-week 10 was another goal-filled weekend, with Arsenal kicking off the week with a trip to King Power Stadium.
Arsenal opened the scoreboard with an early goal from Gabriel, and they extended their lead just 10 minutes later with a goal from Emile Smith-Rowe. Despite Leicester’s efforts to make a comeback, the Gunner’s goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale denied the Foxes’ chances consistently, and the game ended 2-0 to Arteta’s side.
Liverpool were favourites to take all three points against Brighton, but Potter’s side were not giving up without a fight.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson scored an early goal to put the Reds in the lead, and Sadio Mané netted another one shortly after. It seemed like a done-deal for Klopp’s side, but after Brighton’s Enock Mwepu’s first Premier League goal for Brighton and Trossard’s second-half goal, the game ended in a 2-2 draw, with Liverpool dropping three points and missing a massive opportunity to escape Manchester City on the ladder.
Goals from Zaha and Gallagher earned Crystal Palace a surprising 2-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester City. Pep’s side dropped points again and are now sitting 5 points off leaders Chelsea, who now move three points clear at the top of the table after their 3-0 away win against Newcastle.
After a goalless first half, a late brace from Reece James and penalty from Jorginho saw Tuchel’s side leave St. James Park with all three points. The Blues now sit comfortably at the top after their closest competitors Liverpool and Manchester City both dropped points after their games.
Manchester United ended their winless run with a 3-0 win against Spurs.
With a goal and an assist, Ronaldo came through for his team once again and put United in the lead just before half-time with a brilliant volley. Despite Nuno’s side trying to make a comeback, Cavani doubled United’s lead in the second half and Rashford came on in the last ten minutes to score a late goal, sealing their 3-0 victory. With increasing pressure on Ole to pull United from the trenches, Ronaldo and the rest of the team came through for their manager, but it’s not all clear yet as United face City in the Manchester derby next week.
