Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 6
What a Premier League weekend! An undefeated team, and surprising draws around the league, and of course the Match of the Week in this weekend’s recap.
1. Hueng-Min Son returns to the Spurs for Match of the Week
It’s not necessarily the match that was exciting but it was a feel good story for everyone involved. Hueng-Min Son returned to England to start for the Spurs in his first game since his trials for the South Korean National Team in the Asian Cup Games. The Spurs took on Brighton & Hove Albion in a 2-1 victory that saw Spurs on top.
2. Burnley thrash Bournemouth
Burnley haven’t had the best season. They were in the relegation zone range coming into this match but left outside of the drop zone. Burnley put on a 4-0 performance that caught the eye of the league as the Burnley of last season that was acting like a competitive Top 4 team. For Bournemouth it was a loss they’d like to forget as it pushed them further out of the Top 10 range from a points perspective.
3. Man City destroy Cardiff City
Another blowout in the Premier League, but the club putting in the work wasn’t a surprise compared to Burnley. Man City put down Cardiff 5-0 in what was a goalfest for the Citizens. There wasn’t much Cardiff could do throughout the game as it showed as the second half wore on that they simply wanted to get off the pitch as quick as possible.
4. Liverpool continue undefeated run
It’s clear Liverpool are in the driver’s seat from this point on. A 3-0 win over Southampton was a resounding message to the team’s beneath the Reds that they can put a game away quickly. The final score was reached by the end of the first half as Southampton couldn’t mount anything to come back.
5. Wolves hold Man United to draw at Old Trafford
The Wolves continue to show class in their Premier League return. The newly promoted outfit entered Old Trafford unfavored to win despite United’s struggles this season. What came out of this match was more questions for Manchester United and their inability to secure three points from lesser teams. The Wolves salvaging a point is as good as a win for them against a tough arena to play and team to play. United didn’t bring a team strong enough to beat Wolves despite it’s superiority on paper.
Matchweek 7 begins this weekend.
