After an energized Saturday in Premier League, Super Sunday too lived up to expectations with all four games ending in results and goals. There were some surprises too as we started getting some clarity both at the top and bottom.

The Hornets sting the Red Devils!

It got worse for Jose Mourinho as his Manchester United side fell for a second consecutive league defeat – this time at Watford. The Hornets were the better team all through and struck a crucial 3-1 win to pile up the misery on Mourinho. The margin got inflated with a late goal but in the end it was a well-deserved victory for Watford. The win puts Watford in the top half while United drop down to seventh. Still early but the early signs are worrying for the Red Devils who could feel the heat.

Crystal Palace crush Stoke

Crystal Palace had a nightmare 2016 calendar year – up until the last round. And now they suddenly have two wins in two matches combined with a comfortable 4-1 win over Stoke. The Eagles went 2-0 up within 12 minutes and the result was never in doubt from there. For Stoke, it can’t get any worse as they have conceded four goals for the third time this season. There is so much pressure under Mark Hughes that the odds on him getting sacked are shortening by the day.

Southampton scrape past Swansea

Southampton manager Claude Puel marked his first victory in Premier League with a narrow 1-0 victory over Swansea. The hosts were the dominant team in the middle in the entire first half but their dominance didn’t translate to goals. It was only after the hour that Charlie Austin scored for the hosts to seal full points for the Saints. The Swans could have equalized late in the game through Gylfi Sigurdsson but the hosts held on to well-deserved full points.

Spurs move up with a crucial win

Tottenham began their climb up the table with a very important 1-0 win over Sunderland. It was Harry Kane’s goal that gave them full points to end a solid if unspectacular performance in the game. The only sore point being the late injuries to three players – Mousa Dembele, Harry Kane and Eric Dier – that will keep Mauricio Pochettino worried. For David Moyes and Sunderland, this is a nightmare that is refusing to leave as they are separated from the bottom of the table only by Stoke who are worse than them on current form.
