Premier League week 8 round up

Premier League Week 8 Round Up

Chelsea put their disparity behind them as they completed the 3-0 thrashing of Leicester City on a sunny Saturday afternoon in the start of Premier League week 8 games.

Saturday’s early kick-off saw Chelsea welcome the defending champions, Leicester City, to Stamford Bridge in a game the visitors will most certainly be quick to forget.

Costa, Hazard and Victor Moses were all on target for the Blues in one of their most dominant displays thus far.

The pick of results in the league, though, came in Bournemouth’s game against Hull City as the hosts put six goals past the Tigers in what came across as the biggest surprise of the weekend in the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Arsenal showed their title credentials at the Emirates as they secured a hard-fought 3-2 victory against Swansea City. Theo Walcott’s brace helped spur the Gunners to victory after Arsenal looked to switch off at certain points in the game.

Manchester City was held to a 1-1 draw in what could’ve been an easy home victory for the Citizens. Guardiola’s side was awarded two penalties both of which were squandered by De Bryune and Aguero respectively.

Stoke City grabbed their first win of the season with a 2-0 victory against Sunderland who is still yet to win a game. David Moyes’ side has hit rock-bottom on the league table and early indications suggest that they’re primed for a relegation battle.

Nacer Chadli put one past his former side as Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw against a strong West Brom side. Pochettino’s men would’ve been disappointed with the result after only just recently claiming an emphatic 2-0 win over league leaders Manchester City.

Saturday’s late kick-off saw West Ham secure a hard-fought away win in the London derby game against Crystal Palace. Manuel Lanzini struck home to lift the Hammers out of the relegation zone after a poor start to the season.

Sunday’s games were quite eventful as Southampton continued their rich vein of form against Burnley with a 3-1 victory. Charlie Austin bagged a sublime brace which included a 52nd-minute strike and a 66th-minute penalty to take his tally to seven goals in six games; Nathan Redmond also got on the scoresheet for the Saints.

Burnley’s lone goal came through a 72nd-minute spot-kick from Sam Vokes. Sean Dyche’s side is currently 14th in the table following their poor run of form.

Middlesbrough succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of an energetic Watford side. Boro currently sit at 17th place on the log after a poor run of results. Watford’s win took them to the top half of the table (10th).

Monday night’s fixture was quite drab, to say the least as Liverpool played out a dull goalless draw against Manchester United. There were some moments which seemed to offer some much needed excitement, but neither side was able to break the deadlock at any point in the game.
