Premier League – Week 3

1 September 2016

Tottenham 1 – 1 Liverpool: Klopp’s team dominated the first hour at White Hart Lane. But with typical Liverpool inconsistency couldn’t keep their focus, allowing Spurs to stage a fightback. Danny Rose secured a point for Tottenham and Spurs goalkeeper Michel Vorm also proved his worth.

Chelsea 3 – 0 Burnley: Chelsea continued their flawless start to the season. Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses saw to it that Burnley were beaten. Scott Arfield did take the fight to Chelsea, but it was always clear that Burnley were totally outclassed.

Crystal Palace 1 – 1 Bournemouth: both are still looking for a win this season, but Scott Dann scoring in injury-time did get Palace their first point of the season.

Everton 1 – 0 Stoke: thanks to a penalty Koeman’s team maintained their winning streak, though a lacklustre Stoke was hardly inspiring.

Leicester 2 – 1 Swansea: The champions got their first goal of the season courtesy of Jamie Vardy and captain Wes Morgan. With torrential rain, thunder and lightning, the match was certainly dramatic, and the Swans fought back valiantly, with Leroy Fer heading the ball into the net, but it was too little too late.

Southampton 1 – 1 Sunderland: goals from Jermain Defoe and Jay Rodriguez ensured a draw, leaving both sides still looking for their first Premier League wins of the season.            

Watford 1 – 3 Arsenal: with the Gunners were in form for the first-half and had built an impressive 3-0 lead by half-time. Mazzarri’s side did get their act together for the second-half, with a goal by substitute Roberto Pereyra.

Hull 0 – 1 Man Utd: 18-year old substitute Marcus Rashford scored a last minute, match winning goal. Ibrahimovic kept the pressure up on Hull with two attempts. Hull did put up a spirited fight, thanks in no small part to skipper Curtis Davies, but United were clearly superior.

Manchester City 3 – 1 West Ham: Everything is going smoothly for the Sky Blues, with West Ham completely outclassed for most of the match, suffering goals from Sterling and Fernandinho.

West Brom 0 – 0 Middlesbrough: Well done to anyone who actually managed to make it through the entire, drab, lifeless match. Enough said.

At this stage City, Chelsea and United are vying for the top place, with current champions Leicester settling back to a more realistic midfield, and Stoke, Bournemouth and Watford predictably scrapping at the bottom.
