Last week’s action in the Premier League
What a week we had witnessed! Last weekend’s fixtures were full of plenty goals and surprises to say the least. This season might just prove to be the year of the underdogs, as the likes of West Ham, Leicester and Crystal Palace have been showing the big teams that they mean business in this year’s campaign. The clash between Leicester and Manchester United was one filled with action and beautiful end-to-end football. United took the lead courtesy of two brilliant goals by Robin Van Persie and Angel Di Maria – who is showing Van Gaal and the fans that he was a valuable investment. The Red Devils’ lead was short-lived as Leicester came from behind and went all the way to grab the winner, as they fought tooth and nail for their 5-3 victory.
Arsenal continue to keep their fans happy with their unbeaten run with 3 goals – in the space of three minutes! – against a lacklustre Aston Villa side. The Gunners 3-0 win comprised of goals from Danny Welbeck , Mesut Ozil and Aly Cissokho, who accidently slotted one past Villa keeper; Brad Guzan. Daniel Sturridge’s injury woes is seemingly affecting Liverpool’s morale after they suffered a 3-1 loss against West Ham. Manchester City managed to disrupt Chelsea’s consecutive winning streak, which resulted in both sides grabbing a point. Frank Lampard proved to be a super-sub as he found the net in the dying minutes of the game, making the match 1-1 at full time.
Matches in store for this weekend
This weekend’s fixtures will be sure to have you glued to your settees! There is an array of exciting matches. We have not only one but two derby clashes! Liverpool host Everton at Anfield just after 12 noon. Whereas Arsenal battle it out with fellow north Londoners; Tottenham. Can Chelsea get back to their winning form against Aston Villa? Villa travel to Stamford Bridge, there is no doubt that they will be looking to redeem themselves after last week’s heavy defeat. Manchester United will also be looking to restore some of their pride when they go head-to-head with West Ham. It most certainly won’t be a walk in the park, especially if The Hammers put on a repeat performance that gave them a comfortable win against Liverpool last Saturday.
