The matches are coming in thick and fast in the English Premier League. Midweek fixtures are back on the calendar for the new season and some tricky encounters are set to go down tonight.
It has taken just that long for Liverpool to get its season on the road and boy, were they cruel! They spanked Bournemouth with all the ruthlessness in the world. The implication, unfortunately, has been the Cherries letting go of Scott Parker after four Gameweeks.
Tottenham continues to win matches. And yet, no one can truly tell if they are truly that good. They have simply been effective.
Somehow, mostly unnoticed, Brighton continues to excite, cementing its status as one of the top-ten teams in the League.
Review of Gameweek 4
The last Gameweek witnessed some outstanding goals, not least the match between Wolves and Newcastle.
Bruno Fernades’ only goal was enough to give Manchester United the maximum points against Southampton.
Even with Connor Gallagher sent off after 28 minutes, Raheem Sterling notched his first Chelsea goal as they defeated Leicester City 2-1.
Brighton managed a 1-0 win against a tough Leeds side as Erling Haaland scored his first Premier League hat-trick in Manchester City’s 4-2 comeback win against Crystal Palace.
Liverpool broke their duck for the season in spectacular fashion, defeating Bournemouth 9-0. Mohamed Salah failed to score or provide an assist. However, Roberto Firmino stole the show with two goals and three assists.
Brentford and Everton shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw as Gabriel scored a last-gasp goal to help Arsenal defeat Fulham 2-1 and maintain their 100% record.
Wolves and Newcastle played out an entertaining 1-1 draw as West Ham earned their first points with a 1-0 defeat of Aston Villa.
Harry Kane scored two and missed a penalty in Tottenham’s 2-0 win away to Nottingham Forest.
