Premier League Saturday Review – Gameweek 6

Leeds United climbed to the 4th position in the table after beating Villa in an away victory for them. The first half of the game was goal-less. Patrick Bamford was the man for the day for Leeds. He scored his opening goal in the 55th minute. Earlier, Aston Villa came too close to scoring when a shot by Grealish was defended at the goal-line beautifully. Grealish created all sorts of problems for Leeds but the Leeds keeper Meslier made some terrific saves. Finally, one ricochet from the keeper was tucked in by Bamford. That was followed by two more goals. Bamford scored a hat-trick in the game and the match ended 3-0 in favour of Leeds United.

Elsewhere at the London stadium, the match between West Ham and Man City ended in a 1-1 draw. The goal from West Ham was absolutely magnificent. Antonio scored through a fantastic scissor kick. The goal will be remembered by the Hammers fans for a long time. Later, Phil Foden, the English youngster equalised for City. City had a chance later in the game, but Raheem Sterling wasn’t able to make the most of it. West Ham are now one place above City in the table with one extra game played.

At the Craven Cottage, Crystal Palace beat Fulham with a score-line of 2-1. An earlier attempt by Zaha was saved but in the same attack, Palace scored through Reidewald. It was his first goal for Palace. Fulham came close to scoring an equaliser but Lookman’s excellent ground shot deflected off the post and was then hit wide by Mitrovic. In the second half, Zaha tucked in a goal through a simple cross. He just had to tap the ball in. Kamara was sent off for an extremely nasty foul. Later, in the stoppage time, the Fulham captain Thomas Cairney scored a brilliant goal.

At the Theatre of Dreams, it was a goalless draw between United and Chelsea. United played a very dominating game. In the course of the entire game they came close to scoring thrice. Twice through Rashford and once off a Mata shot. But the hero for Chelsea was their new keeper Edouard Mendy, whom they signed from Rennes this season. Mendy did some excellent keeping throughout the game. United’s defenders did a good job, contrary to their poor performances. It was United’s first clean sheet for the season. Edinson Cavani also made his debut when he came on in place of James. He almost scored a goal through his first ever touch for United. It was overall a frustrating game for both the teams as both shared a point. That’s all from the League for Saturday!
