With the Premier League back over the weekend, we knew it was going to be a big one, we just didn’t think it was going to be this big.
Liverpool started off match-week 8 with an absolute belter, securing an easy 3 points against Watford with a 5-0 win.
With the Reds’ fab 3 all showing up, Firmino with a hat-trick, Mane with his 100th PL goal and Mo Salah with another unreal solo-goal to win Player of The Match, it was no surprise that Klopp’s side managed to bring home the win.
Manchester United ended their 29-match unbeaten away run when they faced Leicester later that night.
It was a thrilling game, with both sides scoring goals left, right and centre, but late goals from Vardy and Daka earned the Foxes a 4-2 victory against Ole’s side, who’s now under extreme pressure after the loss.
Despite Brentford’s efforts to challenge Chelsea, Chilwell’s first-half goal and Mendy’s astounding performance secured a 1-0 win against their opponents, sending them a point clear of Liverpool at top spot.
Goals from Manchester City’s star players Bernardo Silva and De Bruyne earned Pep’s side a breezy 2-0 home win against Burnley, holding their third-place position on the table.
On Sunday night, Tottenham Hotspurs travelled to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle. The home fans were given a dream start when Wilson scored their first goal in just 2 minutes, but it didn’t take long for Nuno’s side to take the lead, with the game ending 3-2 with Tottenham’s goals coming from N’dombele, Kane and Son.
