Premier League Matchday 4 Review: Liverpool succumb to defeat

The Premier League, as we all know, usually has a surprise or two for us after every international break, matchday 4 was no different as some big teams lost hard, winning streaks came to an end and certain players shone brightly. Without further ado here’s our Premier League Matchday 4 review.

We were greeted with the spectacle of Manchester City v Liverpool on a mild Saturday afternoon. The game had all the makings of a classic tie, with both sides expected to pose massive threats to each other, but that was not the case as we were delivered an utterly one-sided affair.

City thumped Liverpool 5-0, a tally hardly anybody would’ve predicted prior to the match.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for City in the 24th-minute before Sadio Mane got sent off in the second half for a dangerous challenge on Ederson.

The second half saw Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane bag two goals apiece as Liverpool suffered their first defeat of the season.

Arsenal recovered from their recent battering in sublime form as they secured a 3-0 win over Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.

The much-maligned Danny Welbeck opened the scoring for Arsenal in the 6th-minute before Alexandre Lacazette doubled the Gunners’ lead.

Arsenal’s final goal came in the 50th-minute with Danny Welbeck popping up with another strike to seal his brace, and more importantly Arsenal’s win.

A usually sturdy West Brom defence proved porous on Saturday as it let Brighton’s attack in on a number of occasions which led the home side to put three goals past Ben Foster’s usually safe hands.

Pascal Gross opened the scoring going into the second-half, before notching a goal three minutes later.

Tommer Hemed scored Brighton’s third goal but Brighton were unable to keep a cleansheet as West Brom’s James Morrison snagged a consolation goal for his side.

Harry Kane finally opened his account for the season with a brace against Everton as his side secured a 3-0 win away at Goodison Park.

The Toffees’ spending spree hasn’t given them the edge over the league’s big sides having lost to Chelsea and now Spurs.

Harry Kane opened the scoring in the 28th-minute before Christain Eriksen found the back of the net in the 42nd-minute. Kane completed his brace one minute into the second half as Everton were thoroughly beaten at home by Spurs.

Chelsea secured a 2-1 win away at Leicester City with Alvaro Morata scoring another header and N’golo Kante finding the back of the net.

Jamie Vardy scored Leicester’s lone goal from the penalty spot in the 62nd-minute as they dropped down to 18th-place on the league table whilst Chelsea moved into third place.

Southampton’s shaky start to the season continued as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Watford with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat both finding the back of the net.

Saturday’s final fixture saw Manchester United play out an interesting 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting found the back of the net on two occasions for the Potters to cancel out goals from Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku.

Burnley grabbed a 1-0 wn over Crystal Palace which saw Frank de Boer get relieved of his duties as Palace’s manager.

A Chris Wood strike in the 3rd-minute of play was enough for Burnley to secure the three points.

A goal from Jamaal Lacelles helped Newcastle to a second win in a row courtesy of an assist from Matt Ritchie.

With a lot at stake, West Ham secured their first win of the season against one of the league’s most in-form teams, Huddersfield. Goals from Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew helped Slaven Bilic’s men to the important victory.
