Premier League Matchday 9 Roundup

The weekend’s Premier League action kicked off with an intriguing goalless draw involving Spurs and Bournemouth. Both sides mustered up decent opportunities but cutting-edge finishing was non-existent at Dean Court.

Fellow North London side Arsenal was also held to a goalless draw by Middlesbrough in what proved to be a drab affair. The Gunners were unable to continue their six-game winning run on Arsene Wenger’s 67th birthday.

Leicester City ended their three-game winless run against Crystal Palace courtesy of goals from Ahmed Musa, Okazaki and Christian Fuchs.

Elsewhere, a superb performance by Shaqiri earned Stoke a win over Hull City. The Swiss midfielder bagged a brace which put Hull in the relegation zone following the Tigers’ massive defeat at the hands of Bournemouth last time out.

West Ham picked up their second win on the bounce against Sunderland courtesy of a goal from Winston Reid which was set up by none other than Dimitri Payet.

Liverpool moved up to third place on the League table following a 2-1 win against resilient West Brom. Goals from Sadio Mane and Coutinho earned Klopp’s side the three points on a mild Saturday evening.

Burnley managed to pick up a much-needed win against an Everton side yet to secure a win in four Premier League games. Sam Vokes opened the scoring for Burnley before Yannick Bolasie scored the Toffees’ equaliser just before the hour mark.

Scott Arfield grabbed the winner for Burnley in the dying minutes of the game to take them to 14th on the table.

Bob Bradley’s first game at the Liberty Stadium ended in a stalemate with Watford which left his side second from bottom on the league table.

Sunday’s fixtures were quite intriguing to say the least as Manchester City was held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at the Etihad thus throwing the title race wide open. Guardiola’s side utilised a 3-4-3 formation which was seemingly the wrong choice of tactics against Claude Puel’s side.

The final game of the weekend took place at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea hosted Manchester United in what was sure to be a close encounter between two title challengers – or so we thought.

The Red Devils were beaten 4-0 by their fierce rivals as Pedro, Cahill, Hazard and Kante got on the scoresheet for Antonio Conte’s side.The result sees Chelsea sit at fourth on the table whilst Manchester United slumped to seventh place.
