Week 5 In The Premier League

The fifth weekend in the Premier League had some major matchups. A Merseyside Derby, a match between newly promoted teams and Manchester United vs Arsenal to finish off the week.

Everton vs Liverpool, the merseyside derby, a tough contest in this fiery encounter saw it end in a 0-0 draw, both teams pressed and had chances but neither could convert and the points were shared.

Tottenham beat Fulham 2-1 with Harry Kane and Aleksander Mitrovic both on the score sheet.

Nottingham Forest lost 3-2 at home to Bournemouth, after leading 2-0 at half time a spirited comeback from Bournemouth saw them leave with all 3 points in the battle of the newly promoted clubs.

Chelsea beat West Ham 2-1 and the game was not without controversy West Ham took the lead and after Chelsea had battled back to take the lead, West Ham scored a goal in the last few minutes however it was chalked off to VAR, upon further review, VAR was wrong and Chelsea came out victors.

Brentford beat Leeds United 5-2, Brentford stunted Leeds United's strong start to the season on the back of a stunning hattrick from Ivan Toney. 

Wolves won in a close match with Southampton. Daniel Podence getting the vital, match winning goal in this 1-0 affair. 

Newcastle shared a point with Crystal Palace, Newcastle United should feel aggrieved however after a VAR call chalked off an own goal and didn't award a penalty to the home side. 

Aston Villa secured a surprise point in their 1-1 tie with Manchester City, Erling Haaland opened the scoring with his tenth goal in six appearances, Leon Bailey equalised for Villa and the points were shared. 

Brighton continued their great start to the season with a 5-2 win at home to struggling Leicester City. The one saving grace on this miserable day for Leicester was the fans, they never lost faith and turned up in their masses. 

To finish off the weekend it was Manchester United vs Arsenal. Man U coming out 3-1 winners in this fantastic game of football. A brace from Marcus Rashford helped United walk away with all 3 points and put an end to The Gunners 100% record.
