What a Super Saturday we had in Premier League! There were goals galore and action till the last minute in most matches highlighting how close the league is! Let’s look back at the action.

Klopp…you little beauty!

It was irresistible Reds all the way at Anfield as five-star Liverpool thrashed Hull City 5-1. Goals from Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and a brace from James Milner were indicative of how dominant the Reds were this evening. David Meyler grabbed a goal for the visitors early in the second half who had to play for more than an hour with 10 men. Ahmed Elmohamady was sent-off in the first-half for the Tigers. Jurgen Klopps’ men surely look top four contenders on current form.


Everton’s march come to a halt

Ronald Koeman’s side was one of the early pacesetters this season so far but came unstuck against a tenacious Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth. A Junior Stanislas goal was enough for the Cherries to stun the Toffees for a 1-0 win. It was a game completely dominated by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and completely deserved their full points. Barring a late miss by Enner Valencia, Everton never looked threatening the result.

Pep marches on!

Almost nonchalantly, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City brushed aside Swansea 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium for a sixth consecutive Premier League win. A Sergio Aguero double and a Raheem Sterling strike continued their undefeated run of the season. But it was not all rosy for the Citizens who had to endure a tough fight from the Swans for an hour. Kevin De Bruyne’s late injury too was a blip which would keep Pep on his toes in the coming days.

Stoke robbed of a win

Stoke looked set for their first win of the Premier League season but a late Salomon Rondon header in injury-time earned a 1-1 draw for the Baggies at the Britannia Stadium. A win would have eased the pressure on Mark Hughes although they are off the bottom of the table for now.

From three points to none – poor Sunderland!

It looked like three points then one point but in the end they got none. A Jermain Defoe’s double and a two-goal lead by the hour was not enough for David Moyes as his team crashed to a loss at home. Crystal Palace earned full points after a dramatic stoppage time goal from Cristian Benteke won it 3-2 for the Eagles.

Middlesbrough versus Tottenham

Tottenham continued their bright start and won 2-1 at Middlesbrough. The absence of Harry Kane was not felt at all as Son Heung-Min netted twice for Mauricio Pochettino men who now are four points behind leaders Manchester City.
