EPL Weekend four saw Manchester City go solo at the top with an all-win record while Chelsea and Everton remain in close pursuit. At the bottom it is still tight for Stoke City and Sunderland who will have some sleepless nights. Let’s take a look back at the action from the weekend.

Guardiola draws first blood!

 

Pep Guardiola drew first blood as Manchester City earned bragging rights in the Manchester derby with a 2-1 win over Manchester United. The final score is close but the Citizens were a better team on the night running their neighbors ragged. True that Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a couple of chances to win a point for the hosts but that would have been an unworthy result!

Liverpool steamroll Leicester City!

Liverpool continued their recent trend of being exceptional in alternate games with a commanding 4-1 win over defending Champions. Roberto Firmino scored twice while goals from Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane were enough for the hosts on a day their towering new stand worth £ 150 million was opened. Jamie Vardy did pull one back for the visitors but in the end it was a procession even he couldn’t stop. The bigger question for Jurgen Klopp is if his team can add consistency to their exuberance!

Arsenal win full points…just!

It required a controversial, injury-time penalty for Arsenal to score a 2-1 win over Southampton and grab full points. For Arsene Wenger it is a case of welcome relief as drop of points at home in a second-game-in-running would have been uncomfortable. The Saints would be smarting from the ‘penalty decision’ but will have to pick their game up to remain vigilant in this high-pressure Premier League.

Spurs and Everton win while Chelsea get lucky

A Heung-Min Son brace and goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane helped Tottenham thump Stoke City 4-0. Stokes continue to brace the bottom of the Premier League table while their coach may also have disciplinary matters to fret about.

Everton rode on a brilliant hat-trick by Romelu Lukaku to hand a 3-0 thrashing of their former manager David Moyes’ Sunderland. Ronald Koeman continues to ride on a great start and stay in the top four.

Pantomime villain Diego Costa scored twice and Chelsea did everything they could to throw their lead in a pulsating encounter at the Liberty Stadium against Swansea City that eventually ended 2-2. Chelsea remain unbeaten but Antonio Conte will definitely regard this as two points lost.

And others…

Burnley held high-flying Hull City to a 1-1 draw and pick up a point which could prove vital in the final analysis. Bournemouth got their first victory of the season with a 1-0 win over West Brom while Watford got theirs by coming from behind in a 4-2 win over West Ham. Crystal Palace too picked their first win by putting brakes on the impressive start of Middlesbrough with a 2-1 win.
