It slipped for Liverpool last season against Chelsea. On Saturday, the replay was on and again Mourinho prevailed. Emre Can gave Liverpool a hope early on after his strike was deflected into the net. Liverpool has been terrible at defending set pieces this season and conceded again against Chelsea as Cahill notched home a rebound. The Beast Diego Costa smashed in 2-1 and although Liverpool created some late chances and had a valiant appeal for a penalty, Chelsea won.
Andy Carroll returned for West Ham, but couldn’t find the net. Make sure you find the net with a Guts bonus sports now! The Hammers drew against Aston Villa who still can’t find the net. A clean sheet was nice for a change though. Manchester United struggled with Palace, but Juan Mata’s strike secured three points for the Red Devils.
At Turf Moor, Burnley secured their first win of the season after a signature Trippier cross and a thundering Barnes header. QPR almost had City. Almost. However, Sergio Aguero scored twice though and singlehandedly secured a point for a weak City. Southampton continued their good spell with another win-to-nil through two late goals from Shane Long. We expect Saints to beat Aston Villa in two weeks’ time, but can they upset the likes of City, Arsenal and Man Utd?
Sebastian Larsson curled in a free kick against Everton, but Leighton Baines converted a penalty to make it 1-1 at the Stadium of Light. Newcastle is in excellent form and beat West Brom 2-0 after a goal from Ayoze even Zlatan would be proud of. And poor Spurs lost at home to Stoke. Bojan with the play of the day at White Hart Lane with his 1-0 goal.
And lastly, Swansea’s subs came from behind to beat the mighty Gunners. Modou Barrow, note that name. The former Östersund player could prove to be an interesting addition for the Swans and his pace created the free kick that Gylfi Sigurdsson slotted into the top corner. Minutes after, Gomis headed home the winner. Next weekend, International break. We’ll e back!
