Premier League MatchWeek 14 - Sunday Review

Matchday 14 of the Premier League and an amazing Super Sunday of games! Only 3 games took place on this memorable day with 3 scintillating Derbies to cap an amazing round of games.


Much Like the Games on Saturday, the Premier League maintained it’s high standard of Electric Football with Derby Day. Here’s a roundup of what happened.

Chelsea 2 – 0 Fulham

The Blues returned to winning ways after a humiliating loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley. Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea didn’t produce anything too Special but got the job done.

The West London Derby kicked off especially well for Chelsea as the Blues opened the scoring in the 4th minute. Stamford Bridge erupted as N’Golo Kante capped off a brilliant run of play in Midfield to set Pedro up on the right wing, the Spanish Forward calmly slotted the ball into the Goal to give Chelsea the lead. 

Maurizio Sarri’s side then seemed to have tapered off and almost seemed content with the one Goal Lead. Fulham had a couple of good Chances Courtesy Callum Chambers, The Arsenal defender who is on Loan at Fulham forced two very good saves from Kepa Arrizabalaga and was a constant threat for the visitors. Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham side continued to challenge their West London neighbors till Substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek killed the game off just 8 minutes from time. The Englishman was set up by Eden Hazard who very cleverly found Loftus-Cheek to his right who put the ball past Sergio Rico to seal the three points.

 

Arsenal 4 – 2 Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal Continued to impress in what was probably the Gunners best Performance in a London Derby in recent years. Unai Emery’s showed some immense character and will be beaming with Confidence as they set themselves up for a game against Manchester United in Midweek.

Jan Vertonghen gave away a Penalty just 10 minutes into the London Derby courtesy a pretty evident handball and was even booked. Arsenal’s Piere Emmerick Aubameiyang steeped up to the Spot and calmly put the Gunners in the lead. Tottenham Hotspur came straight back into the game at the Half-hour mark, Eric Dier got just enough off Christian Eriksen’s sensational set-piece to level things up at the Emirates and to Unai Emery’s despair just Four minutes later Callum Chambers brought Son Heung-Min down in the box to concede a Penalty. Spurs’ main man Harry Kane made no mistake from the Spot and just like that the Visitors were in front at Half-Time. 1-2.

The Gunners came back to pull off one of the Greatest Comebacks this Season. In the 56th Minute, Aubameiyang scored a long-range curler to make it 2-2 and go top of the Premier League Golden Boot race with his 10th Goal. The Emirates erupted and the atmosphere was electric, the fans began to believe and it evidently transferred on to the pitch. substitute Alexandre Lacazette was fortunate with a well driven deflected effort that found the back of the net to put Arsenal back in the Lead. Arsenal’s holding Midfielder and new signing Lucas Torreira showed his quality in front of Goal and killed the game off in the 74th minute. Things went from bad to worse for Tottenham as in the dying minutes Jan Vertonghen was shown a second Yellow and sent off for a foul on Alexandre Lacazette. 

 

Liverpool 1 – 0 Everton

Liverpool proved that Merseyside is Red yet again! Jurgen Klopp’s side pulled off a thrilling and memorable Derby win and are still within reach of Table toppers Manchester City.

1-0 scoreline was in no way reflective of a boring game, instead, the scoreline indicates a host of chances wasted by both sides. Liverpool were threatened in the first half when Yerry Mina’s header missed the goal by inches, effectively this chance set the tone for the rest of the game. Andre Gomes later suffered to Alisson Becker’s outstanding keeping, the Brazilian denied Gomes from Point Blank range to keep his side in the hunt. In the Liverpool camp, it was a frustrating day for Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri, The Senegalese Forward missed at least two out and out scoring chances, overhitting both while Shaqiri was denied by Jordan Pickford from close range. 

Jurgen Klopp surprisingly brought on Belgian forward Divock Origi for his first appearance this Season. The move definitely paid off as deep into extra time Origi capitalized on Pickford’s inability to collect the ball after it ricocheted off the post and headed his team to victory!
