Premier League gameweek 08 review:

Brighton 0-0 Burnley

The gameweek began with a timid affair on the south coast of England at the Amex Stadium. Brighton and Burnley played out a rare goalless draw in this season’s Premier League and shared a point each.

The home side remained in 16th in the league table and it was only Burnley’s second point of the campaign, with the Clarets remaining 19th spot.

Southampton 2-0 Newcastle United

Southampton continued their positive start to the season with a win at home over Steve Bruce’s Newcastle. Che Adams opened the scoring early and Stuart Armstrong sealed the points with an 82nd-minute strike.

The Saints momentarily moved to the top of the table but are currently fourth in the standings.

Everton 1-3 Manchester United

Manchester United managed to halt their run of poor form with a win at Goodison Park on Saturday. Bernard gave Everton the lead but Manchester United went into the break leading 2-1 courtesy a brace from Bruno Fernandes.

Edinson Cavani sealed the points for the Red Devils with his first goal for the club in injury time.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Leeds United

Roy Hodgson’s side produced a solid performance to beat Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United at home on Saturday. Scott Dann and Eberechi Eze scored twice in the first half and Helder Costa scored an own goal just before the broke to put Palace in a commanding position.

Jordan Ayew netted another in the second half to make the points sure for the home side at Selhurst Park.

Chelsea 4-1 Sheffield United

David McGoldrick gave Sheffield United the shock lead at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. But their joy was short-lived as Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell scored to give Chelsea the lead in the first half.

Thiago Silva doubled their lead in the 77th minute and Timo Werner added another to add gloss to the scoreline.

West Ham 1-0 Fulham

Tomas Soucek scored in the 91st minute to give West Ham the lead the Olympic Stadium but there was more drama left in the game. Fulham received a spot-kick late on in the game and a chance to get a point away from home.

But Ademola Lookman missed a Panenka-style penalty with the last kick of the game and the Hammers clinched a dramatic victory.

West Brom 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham secured a hard-fought victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns courtesy a late goal from Harry Kane. The Baggies had their chances to score at the other end but eventually, the away side prevailed and Spurs are now sitting second in the league table

Leicester City 1-0 Wolves

Jamie Vardy converted a 15th penalty to give Leicester the lead at the King Power Stadium. He did miss another penalty before the break but the Foxes managed to hold on to the 1-0 scoreline to win the three points at home.

Wolves came close to equalising after the break but didn’t manage to breach the Leicester defensive wall. The win propelled Brendan Rodgers’ side to the top of the league table.

Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah converted a 13th-minute penalty to give Liverpool the lead at the Etihad but Gabriel Jesus hit back to make it 1-1. Kevin De Bruyne then missed from the spot as the two sides were level on scores heading into the half-time break.

The two teams traded chances in the second half but eventually had to settle for a point each.

Arsenal 0-3 Aston Villa

Aston Villa outplayed Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night. A Bukayo Saka own goal gave Villans the lead in the first half and Ollie Watkins scored a brace three minutes apart in the second to seal the points.

But the scoreline could have been a lot worse as the away side regularly carved open the Gunners defence throughout the 90 minutes.
