And we’re back after the international break.
Chelsea kicked off game week 12 with a trip to King Power Stadium, and the current Premier League leaders sealed a 3-0 win over Leicester.
Tuchel’s side opened the scoreboard in the 14th minute after a header from Rudiger, and a goal from Kante against his former club shortly after saw Chelsea go into half-time two goals up. Despite Leicester’s efforts in the second half, Pulisic slotted Chelsea’s third goal of the night, sealing a very comfortable 3-0 victory, they’re now unbeaten in their last six games.
Despite Watford’s Ismaila Sarr being twice denied of an early penalty, the Hornets claimed a 4-1 home win against Manchester United.
With goals from both Joshua King and Ismaila Sarr in the first half, United went into half-time two goals down. Donny van de Beek pulled through for his team when he came on as a substitute and scored United’s first goal of the game in the 50th minute, but it wasn’t enough as Ole’s side went a man down after Maguire was sent off for a challenge on Tom Cleverly.
Late goals from Watford’s Pedro and Dennis gave Ranieri his first home win as Watford’s head coach. United drop to 8th place, and with only one win in their last 7 games, Ole’s time at the wheel has come to an end as the former United player and coach stepped down from his role at the club after mutually terminating his contract with the club.
Then we head to Anfield, where Liverpool secured all three points at home after a 4-0 win over Arsenal.
Sadio Mane opened the scoreboard with a goal six minutes before half-time, and with Jota doubling the Reds’ lead in the second half, the Gunners’ chances were looking slim. With a goal from Salah, who has now scored 11 goals in 12 Premier League games, and Minamino’s first goal at home, Liverpool sealed the victory, and Arteta’s side left Anfield pointless.
Manchester City dominated Everton with a 3-0 win at the Etihad stadium.
Sterling opened the scoring with a late first-half goal, and the perfect start to his 300th Premier League appearance. Everton keeper Jordan Pickford denied the Englishman his second in the second half, but goals from teammates Rodri and Bernardo Silva sealed the win for Pep’s side. Manchester City now go ahead of Liverpool, and three points behind leaders Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s Spurs ended off the week with a 2-1 home win against Leeds.
The visitors took the lead in the first half with Daniel James breaking the deadlock late into the first-half, but goals from Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Sergio Reguilon saw Spurs come back from behind, securing Conte’s first Premier League win as the club’s new head coach.
