It’s safe to say, this week was a shocker for many of us.
A dominant performance from Pep’s side in the Manchester derby gave City a 2-0 win against Manchester United on Saturday night.
An early own goal from Bailly saw Manchester City go ahead in the early minutes of the game. Manchester United tried to rally back, with big saves from De Gea denying City plenty of opportunities to score, but it wasn’t enough as Bernardo Silva slotted one in just before half-time.
With a goalless second half, the game ended 2-0, with Pep’s side moving up to second, and Ole’s side dropping down to sixth after a fourth consecutive home loss.
18th-place Burnley proved enough for current leader Chelsea as both teams left Stamford Bridge with a point each.
Chelsea’s Havertz opened the scoreboard with a goal in the first half, and they continued to dominate the pitch with shots left, right and centre, but a second-half goal from substitute Vydra saw the game end 1-1, with Chelsea staying at the top and Burnley remaining at 18th.
With a goal in his third consecutive Premier League match, Smith Rowe won Arsenal all three points against Watford at the Emirates Stadium.
After a goalless first-half, Smith Rowe fired a shot into the far corner to break the deadlock. Watford tried to level the game with a close attempt from King, but it wasn’t enough as Arsenal held on to win the game 1-0, moving them up to fifth place, six points behind Chelsea.
Liverpool end their long unbeaten Premier League run against West Ham at the London stadium.
After an early own goal from the Red’s goalkeeper Alisson, West Ham were ahead for most of the first-half, but after a late free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold, the game was levelled at half-time.
After two goals in just seven minutes by Fornals and Zouma in the second-half, West Ham took the lead and despite a late goal from substitute Origi, it wasn’t enough for Klopp’s side to pull through, and the game ended 3-2 to the Hammers. The win puts West Ham in third place, as Liverpool drop to fourth.
