Premier League Weekend Round Up

The early kick off saw high flying Bournemouth who are gaining in confidence every week take on Man Utd whose confidence seems to ebb from week to week. Away from home Mourinho needed to show how his team is going to get points against the so called winnable games but Bournemouth this season have shown that they are now a recognised premier league outfit and no ‘Pushover’. Another Callum Wilson strike in 11 minutes gave Bournemouth a deserved lead as they dominated the opening stages but a Martial strike drew United level in the first half. A Marcus Rashford injury time winner gave United the deserved 3 points 1-2.

Cardiff who are desperate for points took on Leicester and it was the first match since the tragic helicopter crash last week that saw there chair and owner loose there lives. Many people thought that this was too early for the staff and players but apparently it was the Leicester City players themselves who insisted this game went on. Demari Grey scored a second half goal to give Leicester all 3 points and leave Cardiff again looking over there shoulder. 0-1

Everton were reeling from an away loss to Man Utd, took on a jubilant  Brighton at Goodison Park. Feeling they deserved more at Old Trafford they took an early lead with Richalison but Lewis Dunk got an equaliser before half time to keep Brighton in the game. A rare Seamus Coleman strike and a further goal from the in form Richalison secured all 3 points for Everton 3-1

Newcastle, still in need of any morale boost played a Watford team who demolished a poor Huddersfield last week. Newcastle really need to turn there season around and show there fans, who turn up week after week, no matter what the score is, exactly what they have got. Despite being dominated in the first half, a half time talk from Rafa saw a different Newcastle in the second half and Perez got the winner 1-0

West Ham feel that they are getting there with performances but they need to start picking up more points and at home played Burnley who had West Ham’s ex goalkeeper Jo Hart in goal.

 

In the first ten minutes, the returning Marko Arnautovic pounced on a mistake by England international James Tarkowski to give the Irons an early lead only for Joey Gudmondsdon to equalise before half time against the run of play. A Mee goal line clearance and a clear penalty, missed by the referee further frustrated West Ham. The second half saw a brace from Felippe Anderson and an injury time strike from Chicarito secure all 3 points for West Ham even though Chris Woods did pull a goal back for Burnley.

There were two late kick offs as Arsenal played Liverpool in a tea time kick off which ended in a draw. Goals from Milner and Lacazette meant the points were shared.

 Wolves entertained Spurs in a new kick off time at 1945 on a Saturday night another TV deal that has been done no matter what the fans think. Spurs dominance was shown as they took a three goal lead with goals from Lamela, Moura and Kane but Wolves fought back with penalties from Nevez and Jimenez, but Wolves could feel hard done by as they had a perfectly good goal ruled out 2-3

Sunday saw Man City demolish Southampton 6-1. Goals from Aguero, Silva an own goal and a Stirling brace put City back on top of the league.  A Danny Ings penalty on 30 minutes was scant reward for the travelling Saints fans.

Chelsea played Palace in the later Sunday kick off. A first half strike from the much maligned Morata gave Chelsea the lead before Townsend equalised for Palace. A further Morata strike along with a Pedro tap in secured the points and victory for Chelsea. 3-1.

Monday sees Huddersfield take on Fulham with both teams desperate for points.
