NEWS AND UPDATES

The Good: Top 5

Manchester United moves to the top spot as they clinched a convincing 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday. This would not have happened if it were not for City’s two successive defeats where they could have go further up front. It was only two games before that City was ahead of United with 5 points, and the first time United was at the top of the table since Louis Van Gaal took charge.

Meanwhile, West Ham United fails to take advantage of the situation to move two points ahead after being forced into a draw on home ground. It would appear that the team have a rather curious problem of performing in front of their own fans, with only four points gained so far from a possible twelve.

West Brom 2:3 Everton

Arsenal and Tottenham moves up to the fourth and fifth place respectively as they each secured a victory. With a stunning 4-1 win over Manchester City and seeing an end to Harry Kane’s goal drought, Tottenham may look forward to challenge the current league leaders.

Nonetheless, their North London rivals which boasts of a much more impressive Alexis Sanchez hat-trick might prove to be a threat; though Arsenal still needs to plug up that rather leaky defence. 8 could be Alexis’s lucky number now, what with him being the 8th South American player to score a hat-trick in the Premier league and securing a spot as the 8th Premier League top scorer with 3 goals alongside Anthony Martial and Andre Ayew.

The Bad: Under the Table

Aston Villa drops into the relegation zone as Stoke City won their match Bournemouth on home ground last Saturday. The Villans would have been at a better place if they could at least secure a draw against Liverpool which would have allowed them to be only one point behind Stoke.

There were no change of luck for the other two teams (Newcastle and Sunderland) in the relegation zone, even with Newcastle managing a 2-2 draw against Chelsea somehow.

The Ugly: A Struggling Chelsea

Currently 15th in the premier league with 7 games gone, former champion Chelsea appears to be struggling. They had trouble playing against Newcastle, a team not leaving the relegation zone anytime soon. Chelsea’s rather poor performance since the start of the season was no less astonishing than Manchester City’s two successive defeats after five straight wins, but with Diego Costa’s 3-match ban verdict it could be here to stay.

Manager Jose Mourinho warns Chelsea players that none of them are “untouchable”; only consistent good performance would earn them such a status. However, he lauded Costa’s performance in the win over Arsenal, when the Brazil-born Spain striker was a nuisance and retrospectively banned for grappling with Laurent Koscielny.

Chelsea’s core players have so far struggled to hit the heights of last term and former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Fabregas says more is required – and not just when Mourinho demands it, as the manager did at half-time of Saturday’s abject draw at Newcastle.
