#1. Aston Villa 3-4 Southampton

In the game at Villa Park, Southampton seemed to have taken the early lead when they headed the ball off a corner into the net. But it was ruled out because of an offside. The VAR played a critical role. Within sometime again, Southampton got another corner which was headed in by Vestergaard. The two goals of Southampton that followed were absolutely stunning. Ward-Prowse scored two stunners off free kicks. It was Ward-Prowse’s birthday as well. The next goal was again Southampton’s which was scored by former Liverpool player Danny Ings. Southampton were 4-0 up at the half-time. Soon after Ings’s goal, Grealish set up Tyrone Mings for Villa’s opener. That was followed by two late goals which came in the stoppage time. One from Watkins and a beautiful goal by Jack Grealish. The match ended 4-3 in Southampton’s favor.

#2. Newcastle United 2-1 Everton

At St. James Park, Newcastle pulled off an upset on Everton. Newcastle could have scored two more but couldn’t on account of some great saves by Everton’s new keeper Olsen. Early on, Newcastle launched a counter-attack on Everton’s corner. Almiron broke out and the ball finally reached Saint-Maximin who couldn’t score because of a great save by Olsen. Later, Wilson was fouled recklessly in the penalty area and Newcastle got a penalty which was converted by Callum Wilson. Another great attempt by Longstaff was saved by Olsen. Later, Callum Wilson scored another to put Newcastle ahead 2-0. A consolation goal came for Everton in the stoppage time through Calvert-Lewin. Newcastle won 2-1.

#3. Manchester United 0-1 Arsenal

At Old Trafford, it was a disappointment for Manchester United. Much like the previous Chelsea match, much did not happen in the first half. Both the teams were at parity. United looked in stark contrast from their previous matches against PSG and RB Leipzig in the Champions League. Arsenal wasn’t playing great as well. A couple of chances were missed by Aubameyang. United’s defense looked good. In the second half, a reckless tackle by Pogba awarded Arsenal a penalty. It was converted coolly by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to give Arsenal the lead. The match ended 1-0 and Aubameyang became the first matchwinner at Old Trafford for Arsenal since Adebayor in 2006.

#4. Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

In the game at the Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham beat BHA 2-1. In the first half, a foul by Lallana on Kane, awarded Spurs, a penalty. Kane scored the penalty putting Tottenham ahead. Early in the second half, BHA’s teenage sensation Lamptey scored the equalizer. It was Lamptey’s first senior goal. Later, Tottenham was unlucky when two of their attempts hit the pole and ricocheted. One by Lallana and another by Kane. Later, a cross by Reguilon was headed in the net by Gareth Bale to give Tottenham the lead. The match ended 2-1 in favor of Spurs. That’s all for today. Stay tuned!
