EPL Review: Chelsea defeated, Liverpool and United share the spoil

City had been in excellent form before the international break and picked up right where they left off against Stoke, scoring a remarkable seven goals. Gabriel Jesus bagged a brace, while David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva also got on the scoresheet.

The star of the show was Kevin De Bruyne, however, who conducted the attack and picked out one exceptional pass after the other.

The win took the Citizens up to first place in the standings, passing rivals United along the way. The Red Devils had momentarily taken sole possession of the top spot on Saturday after their goalless draw at Anfield.

Liverpool and United served up a drab contest that didn’t even come close to living up to the expectations.

Fans were treated to much better during the afternoon slate, including one of the top upsets of the season. Winless Crystal Palace―who hadn’t even scored a goal this season―somehow beat defending champions Chelsea 2-1 at home.

Unsurprisingly, many praised Palace manager Roy Hodgson after the final whistle. The tactician has enjoyed much success against the Blues during his career.

Christian Eriksen scored the only goal in Spurs’ win over Bournemouth.

It was a surprise as Watford came from behind to run away with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

Tom Cleverley struck in stoppage time to give Watford the 2-1 win , their first home victory over the Gunners in 30 years.

Per Mertesacker gave Arsenal the lead on 39 minutes, heading in Granit Xhaka’s corner for his first goal in 1,400 days.

Watford raised the pressure after the break and less than a minute after Heurelho Gomes had saved from Mesut Ozil, Watford had a penalty.

Saturday’s results:

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United

Burnley 1-1 West Ham United

Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

Manchester City 7-2 Stoke City

Swansea City 2-0 Huddersfield Town

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Bournemouth

Watford 2-1 Arsenal
