Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 12
Well the Premier League rolls on, and certainly there were some hotly contested matchups including an interesting Manchester Derby. Let’s see how things stacked up over the weekend.
1. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha honored at home game
Vichai’s son walked the perimeter of the King Power Stadium with the team and coaching staff both past and present, saluting the fans for their support. In the wake of his father’s death, even the opposition Burnley showed beautiful support for the team. The game ended in a 0-0 draw.
2. Man City claim first leg of Manchester Derby
It was a 3-1 come back to earth loss for United and another day at the office for City. City got things kicked off early with David Silva scoring in the 12th minute with the game at half time being 1-0 to City. Sergio Augero scored at the opening of the second half to make it 2-0 but United winger Anthony Martial scored a penalty to make it 2-1. Unfortunately, the Red Devils wouldn’t be able to keep out Ilkay Gundogon from scoring the third goal.
3. Young Spurs defender Foyth scores lone winning goal
Juan Foyth scored his first Premier League goal in a rather dull match against Crystal Palace. The game was 0-0 at halftime. Foyth scored in the 66th minute. The game had decent chances for both sides to score more goals but in the end Palace couldn’t put anything past Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
4. Everton hold Chelsea to 0-0 draw
Chelsea have been on a run of good form. Manager Marrizio Sarri has had the Blues playing smash mouth football to put opponents down early or keep pressure to hold a lead. Everton flipped that against them and managed to keep Chelsea down to no goals in an impressive defensive showing. Both sides however were lacking that offensive efficiency in the third of the pitch to finish attacking plays off.
5. Arsenal spoils Wolves potential win on the road
The Wolves got off to a good start with a goal in the 13th minute from Ivan Cavaleiro. The match stood at 1-0 at halftime. It wasn’t until late into the second half that Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalied for the Gunners to save a 1-1 draw as a match result.
