It started off on Saturday afternoon when Leicester City FC hosted Manchester United at the King Power Stadium in a game where both teams shared the spoils in a 2 all draw. The game opened up with an open chance for Marcus Rashford but he put it over the bar though he later repaid it after being put through by Bruno Fernandez but the joy didn’t last long as Harvey Barnes struck the equalizer few minutes later.
The second half didn’t have any different scenarios from the first just that the goals were scored by two different players and assisted by substitutes on both sides in Bruno Fernandez for Manchester United, assisted by Edison Cavani and on the other side, scored by Jamie Vardy and assisted Ayoze Perez.
Later that day, Arsenal won their first Premier League game since November 1st 2020 by a convincing 3-1 score line against a Chelsea FC side that didn’t have enough answers for the Gunners’ performances on the day at the Emirates Stadium.
The players and their Manager Mikel Arteta looked to be so relieved after ending the bad run through a Alexander Lacazette penalty, Granit Xhaka free kick and Bukayo Saka stunner. Chelsea‘s consolation was scored Tammy Abraham right before Jorgihno missed the penalty. This result pushes Arsenal to 14th on the Log and Chelsea 7th.
Manchester City also bossed their game against a Newcastle castle side that had also lost in the midst of the week against championship side, Brentford FC away from home in the Carabao Cup.
This time they came out so defensive and didn’t look like a threat to the City defense at any point. The Man City goals were scored by Rodrigo and Feran Torres though a couple were missed notably that one from Sergio Aguero that was saved the Magpies goal keeper.
On Sunday, Liverpool were surprised by a sam Allardyce team once again after being the last manager to win at Anfeild with Crystal Palace this time he came and got a point with West Bromwich Albion.
The Kops were past the control level against West brom and it had become dominance after they had got their early goal in Sadio Mane but Big Sam’s men managed to clear their lines well until they had the equalizer through Ajayi who had also scored during their draw against Man City a week before. But they had lots of break aways in the game through Grant who wasn’t making life easy for the Kops substitute Recce Williams. Liverpool remain on top of the Log while West Bromwich Albion too remain 18th on the Log.
The last game on Sunday evening saw Wolves and Spurs share the spoils a game that left Jose Mourihno the Tottenham Hotspurs Head coach upset after his was a head in the 1st minute of the game through a Tanguy Ndombele shot that went past the Wolves goal keeper Rui Patricio but they failed to manage the game in the second half as Wolves was all over them and later netted one through their defender Romain Saiss the Moroccan captain.
But Wolves still looked like they were hungry for more after that Pedro Neto shot and Fabio Silva miss but it didn’t work out for them and managed only a draw.
