Premier League Matchday 5
There have been plenty of thrills, spills and surprises after the fifth week of Premier League football, which was worth waiting for after a long international break. Including a seven goal thriller at the Molineux, the Hornets bit back and a Pukki Party was in order at Carrow Road!
Anfield rocked up the weekend’s beginning from 12:30 with opponents Newcastle United taking an early lead from a Willems wonder goal. Yet once again, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds perfectly maintained their unbeaten 100% record with five wins in five games for Liverpool, a 3-1 victory with goals from dynamic duo, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah. Harry Maguire returned to Old Trafford with his new Manchester United teammates to face former club and 15/16 PL champions, Leicester City, Marcus Rashford proving himself right again to Red Devils supporters by scoring from the spot after an infamous penalty miss against Crystal Palace, former club of international and club teammate, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, one man especially, put on a show away from the Bridge. The young man who fought racist abuse after taking on Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup after a crucial penalty miss was hat-trick hero, Tammy Abraham. Other young talent bagging the business, included midfield maestro, Mason Mount and a 35 yard screamer from Fikayo Tomori, opening his Chelsea account in spectacular style. City crumbling at Carrow Road was a huge sign Liverpool fans wanted to see! Who would’ve predicted the Canaries would run the show against the Premier League Champions with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva bossing their side? Goals from McClean, Cantwell and current top scorer, Teemu Pukki, stole a huge three points for Norwich to send them up and favour Liverpool, with a big five point gap between the Reds and the Citizens, leaving Reds fans stunned.
The Hornets too buzzed back into business after they held Arsenal with a 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road. Yet still, two goals from Pierre Emerick Aubameyang couldn’t in the end stop Watford, when a sloppy pass from Sokratis lead to a Tom Cleverly goal, with a later penalty claim being awarded and taken to the hands of Roberto Pereya, executing his spot kick and leading Watford onto a late 2-2 draw.
The Premier League is just so amazing and unpredictable. What a rollercoaster Matchday 5 gave us!
