The Premiership returned with a boom this weekend, with Manchester City and Spurs kicking off a memorable weekend of football. 4 penalties, 2 penalties saved and 4 Aguero goals pretty much sums that one up. Spurs looked shaky, especially defensively.
Palace vs Chelsea produced a couple of great goals, a horrendous tackle by Azpilicueta and another 3 points for Mourinho. Costa did not participate and could well be out next weekend as well. Or is Mourinho playing mind games ahead of the clash against United?
Southampton has had a fantastic start this season and on Saturday Sunderland was dismantled 8-0. Vergini scored a spectacular own goal and played terribly the rest of the game as well. Dusan Tadic had an awesome game, scoring 1 and providing 4 assists. Saints currently holds the 3rd place in the Premiership.
West Ham and Everton picked up solid wins and even Alan Pardew got some breathing space with a 1-0 win against Leicester. Stoke won 2-1 against Swansea on Sunday having been wrongly awarded a penalty after a blatant dive from Victor Moses.
Hull almost upset Arsenal at the Emirates, but a late goal from Datguy Welbeck secured a point for the Gunners. And what an amazing finish the game on Sunday had! 4 goals in 8 minutes, a couple of own goals and utter despair for QPR who really deserved to get something from the game. Despite the 3 points, Liverpool needs to get things right sooner rather than later. Come Wednesday, Real Madrid will come to Anfield and Liverpool better step up their game. If not, Wednesday’s game could be very humiliating. Get ready for the game and grab the Guts sports promotion!
Hero Award: Sergio Aguero
4 goals could’ve easily been 6 or more for the magician against Spurs. He’s finally back in full force and constantly terrorized the Spurs defenders who had no answer to Aguero’s brilliant play.
Villain Award: Cesar Azpilicueta
Having kept Felipe Luis on the bench for the start of the season, Azpilicueta might have given Luis a free pass to take his place in the Chelsea team. A horrendous tackle right in front of the referee earned the defender a red card and a 3-match ban.
Team Award: Southampton
What can we say? 8-0 is a ridiculous score line and Saints have been very impressive so far this season. Could challenge for a European cup if they manage to keep up their excellent form. Stoke must be terrified ahead of next week’s clash.
Goal Award: Santiago Vergini
Easily one of the best own goals we’ve ever seen. The strike made us laugh so hard that we just have to give him an award.
Guts Gripe of the Weekend: Victor Moses
FFS! That was no penalty, that was a dive! Yellow card, ref! Stoke eventually gained 3 points from that. Very uncharacteristic of Stoke. On loan is he? Makes sense then.Categories: Game Review , Premier League , soccer
