Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 25
With the transfer window behind, only 13 games remain in the Premier League season. Let’s take a look at the top stories from the deadline day matchweek.
1. Swansea spoil Mkhitaryan’s Arsenal debut in PL
Coming off their 1-0 win over Liverpool, Swansea City had the momentum with them. Arsenal were next to come to Liberty Stadium and the 3-1 result was as shocking as the Liverpool game. Swansea player Sam Clucas netted a brace for the team. Henrikh Mkhitaryan debuted in the 60th minute for Mohamed Elneny. Arsenal sit 6th in the table while Swansea go up to 19th.
2. Bournemouth stun Chelsea in 3-0 victory
Bournemouth haven’t enjoyed the best season. They’ve struggled to get wins consistently, and when it comes to the top teams, it’s been a struggle to just get a draw. The game was 0-0 at halftime. The second half was a totally different story. Bournemouth came alive with a goal in the 51st minute. With two more goals coming back to back in the 64th and 67th minute, Bournemouth cruised to a victory on the road against a Top 4 club. Chelsea drop to 4th in the table, while Bournemouth rise to 10th.
3. Spurs spoil Sanchez’s Man United debut in PL
With United trying to catch their noisy neighbors, a loss puts one more nail in the coffin to achieving that goal. The Spurs kicked things off only 11 seconds into the match when Christian Eriksen scored the third fastest goal in Premier League history. The defense became even more suspect when on a cross into the box Phil Jones accidentally put what could’ve been considered a stunner into the United net for an own goal and a 2-0 victory for Tottenham. United still remain second despite the result and Spurs remain 5th.
4. Man City win 3-0 against West Brom
City show no signs of slowing down. The home crowd of the Etihad Stadium enjoyed a cruising victory for their team. The scoring kicked off things in the 19th minute with a goal from Fernandinho. Kevin DeBruyne scored later in the second half, with a goal to finish it off late in the game from Sergio Augero. City remain on top of the table while West Brom drop to the bottom.
5. Liverpool beat Huddersfield 3-0
Rebounding from two bad losses to Swansea City in the Premier League and West Brom in the F.A Cup, Liverpool had a great outing on the road against Huddersfield. Liverpool kicked things off in the 23rd minute with a goal from Emre Can. Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 just before halftime. Mohamed Salah finished things off later in the second half to secure Liverpool 3rd in the table and drop Huddersfield to 17th.
Matchweek 26 begins Saturday.
