Premier League results from week four
Here are some highlights of the games that have been played recently. Some teams celebrated victory, while some had to go home defeated, but this is the beauty of football. You can check out short summaries of all the games.
Burnley 0-3 Liverpool
The current leaders of the Premier League table, Liverpool FC, secured a confident win against Burnley. This was a 13th consecutive victory at the league for the Reds, which became a club record that they broke for the first time since 1990. At first, Chris Wood scored an unfortunate own goal in the 33rd minute. Soon enough, Sadio Mane made the count double, and finally, Roberto Firmino scored the last winning goal for the Liverpool team.
Manchester City 4-0 Brighton
Another Premier League giant confidently won the game on Saturday. This match was prominent for a very quick goal, which Kevin De Bruyne scored after 68 seconds. Sergio Aguero, one of the club's finest goalscorers, managed to score twice in the 42nd and 55th minute. Finally, Bernardo Silva left no chance to Brighton, securing the fourth goal for his team. The only downfall for the Citizens was losing their defender Aymeric Laporte in this match. He suffered a serious knee injury and had to be substituted in the first half of the game.
Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United
Another favourite, Chelsea FC, rather disappointed the fans on Saturday as they let Sheffield United come back from two goals down. Tammy Abraham scored twice in the first half, which gave the Blues a comfortable lead, but the team from Sheffield would not give up so easily. First, Callum Robinson made his attempt result into a goal shortly before the restart, and afterwards it was Kurt Zouma who, unfortunately for Chelsea, scored his own goal in the 87th minute. The game's outcome means that Frank Lampard, the new Chelsea manager, still has to wait for his first home victory in charge.
Leicester City 3-1 Bournemouth
Despite the equal start, where Callum Wilson scored his debut goal of the season just minutes after Jamie Vardy's opening goal, the players from Leicester managed to take the lead. Closer to the break, Youri Tielemans showed the team's fighting spirit by striking the ball in the net. In the second half, Jamie Vardy once again made the score favourable for his squad. Another significant thing about this match was Tielemans barely escaping a red card, after VAR had to check the moment between him and Wilson. In the end, the luck was on Leicester's side in every way.
Southampton 1-1 Manchester United
Even though Daniel James scored a stunning goal, it was not enough to secure a victory for Manchester United. The home team, Southampton, managed to draw thanks to a header by Jan Vestergaard and passionate performance, especially after their player Kevin Danso was removed from the pitch. Even despite that, Manchester United struggled to get a win, so the game ended without a victor.
Crystal Palace 1-0 Aston Villa
Crystal Palace got a minimal win against Aston Villa, which has become their second win in the current Premier League season. Jordan Ayew scored the only goal for his team, which also got easier by the fact that Aston Villa got a player removed and finished the game as a squad of ten. Another controversy about the game was that Aston Villa scored an equaliser late in the game, but got it ruled out by the referees.
West Ham 2-0 Norwich
It was West Ham striker Sebastian Haller who put the first goal into the net of Norwich, and this way he continued his great form, as he scored twice in the previous game. In general, the host team dominated in the second half as well, and Andriy Yarmolenko scored another one for his side. Unfortunately for Norwich, they got defeated again and now have four losses in their five matches in all tournaments.
Newcastle United 1-1 Watford
The intense game started with Will Hughes scoring an impressive quick goal in the second minute. However, just before the half-time break, Fabian Schar saved his team from defeat by putting an equalizer in the net. Nothing changed in the second half, and the game ended in a draw. The Hornets took home their first point in this season's Premier League after suffering three defeats in the previous weeks. The Newcastle squad was disappointed with the result, as they laid high hopes on the game after their win over Tottenham last week.
Everton 3-2 Wolves
The game between Everton and the Wolves was one of the most entertaining ones, as five goals were scored in this match. Richarlison gave an early opening to the game, scoring in the fifth minute, but only four minutes later Romain Saiss came back with an equalizer. The intense first part of the game continued when Alex Iwobi became a goalscorer in the 12th minute. The rest of the first half and the beginning of the second half was rather calm, until the ending of the game. When Richarlison scored another goal, it seemed like everything was over for the Wolves. Even though Willy Boly managed to make the score 3-2 in the fifth compensated minute, it was already too late. They were fighting until the end, but Newcastle took their three points.
Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham
Most of the London football fans were waiting for this epic showdown between two rival teams. The match on Sunday did not decide who of them is the strongest but gave us a lot of entertainment. The Spurs scored first, with Christian Eriksen opening in the 10th minute. Harry Kane's penalty, which was his tenth goal in the last ten games against Arsenal, crushed their hopes even more. Still, the Gooners were not planning to give up. Alexandre Lacazette made the score equal just before the break. In the second half, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent a great ball into the net. The game showed that both squads need to improve their attack and defense.
