The three o’clock kick offs for this week have all reached their conclusion and we’ve had a few interesting results. Here’s the breakdown:
Watford 0-6 Manchester City
Sergio Aguero was the star at Vicarage Road today as City ran riot claiming a 6-0 victory. Aguero grabbed himself an impressive tenth Manchester City hat-trick and continued to link up well with strike partner Jesus who also notched. The other goals were scored by Nicolas Otamendi and a late penalty from Raheem Sterling.
Man City remain unbeaten this season and continue their impressive form in front of goal as they took their goal tally to 16 after just five league games. Meanwhile, Watford will look to regain their form when they visit the Liberty stadium in Swansea next weekend.
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley
Liverpool continue their poor form against the lesser sides as they fail to register a win with Burnley holding very firm. Liverpool fell behind to an effort from Scott Arfield in the 27th minute but responded quickly as Mo Salah bagged his third goal of the season just three minutes later.
Despite registering a staggering 35 shots, Liverpool couldn’t find a winner and thus suffer a third winless game in a row (all comps). Burnley jump up to sixth in the league and will be in good spirits when they take in star striker Chris Wood’s former side, Leeds, in the league cup on Tuesday.
Newcastle United 2-1 Stoke
Newcastle register a third straight win in the Premier League for the first time since 2014 as Jamaal Lascelles bags the winner for the second week in a row. Newcastle took the lead in the 18th minute through Christian Atsu and missed numerous chances to add to their lead as Joselu missed two great opportunities to notch against his former team. Xherdan Shaqiri made Newcastle rue those missed chances when he scored a brilliant low drive from the edge of the ‘D’ in the 57th minute. However, Newcastle would not be denied the three points as captain Lascelles scored a towering header once again.
Newcastle travel to fellow promoted club Brighton next weekend while Stoke travel to Bristol City in midweek in the EFL Cup before hosting champions, Chelsea next Saturday.
Huddersfield Town 1-1 Leicester City
Huddersfield Town have had a very decent start to life in the Premier League, however, after their defeat to West Ham on Monday Night Football, they were looking to bounce back. They took the lead through Laurent Depoitre early in the second half but then conceded a penalty just four minutes later. Jamie Vardy very calmly converted from the spot for a second week in a row.
Huddersfield travel to Crystal Palace in midweek meanwhile Leicester City face Liverpool twice in five days in the EFL Cup and the Premier League.
West Brom 0-0 West Brom
Not a lot to say here as the two sides cancel eachother out at the Hawthorns. There were just two shots on target in the game. The most notable moment in the game came when Ben Foster appeared quite lucky to escape a red card when he rushed out of his box to challenge Javier Hernandez. Both sides will be in League cup action this week as The Baggies face Manchester City, meanwhile West Ham will host Championship side Bolton.
Gareth Barry started today to put himself level with Ryan Giggs for the most ever Premier League appearances with 632.
