Top 5 Stories from PL Matchweek 3
Let’s recap the past weekend action with the top 5 headlines:
Liverpool thrash Arsenal 4-0
Arsene Wenger’s side continues on their disappointing start as Arsenal couldn’t even muster a goal against Liverpool. Coutinho didn’t feature for Liverpool and still Liverpool dominated the match with their front three showing up for goals and assists throughout the match.
Manchester United remain atop the table and undefeated with 2-0 victory against Leicester City
The goals didn’t come until late in the second half but two decisive goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini sealed the deal for United. They carry a 9 point tally and a 10 goal difference into the international break.
Chelsea back in rhythm with 2-0 victory against Everton
Chelsea find themselves in 6th position in the PL table after this result. Their title defense isn’t truly showing promise or defeat so early in the season but it must start showing after the international break.
Huddersfield remain in Top 5, best of promoted teams
The team sits 3rd in the table, remaining undefeated with 2 wins and a draw. They’re the surprising better team of the 3 promoted. Look for Huddersfield to try to stay in the Top 10 for majority of the first half of the season.
Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, and West Han remain winless and in relegation zone
Bournemouth surprisingly haven’t won a game yet this season. They’ve been finishing in the top half of the table efficiently over the past couple seasons. Manager Eddie Howe will fight to bounce back and keep Bournemouth in the Premier League as their history of a struggling club is one they want put behind them.
Crystal Palace aren’t making any strides. The team just can’t compete and with lackluster performances three weeks in a row, the chances are running out for Crystal Palace to have a comfortable run in the table.
West Ham United have surprisingly not won a game get. With players like Marko Arnautovic and Javier Chicharito Hernandez in their lineup, goals and wins are few so far. Manager Slaven Bilic will try to bounce back but the high expectations for West Ham don’t look to be coming so far this season.
The Premier League is on an international break so there will be no games this weekend.
