Chelsea took the top spot in the EPL.Newcastle wins for the first time


London-Defending Champion Manchester City is at the top of the English Premier League for the first time this season.

And if Pep Guardiola’s team continues to play this way, it can be difficult to get the city out of its perch, even in a tight title race with three different teams leading the standings on Saturday.

On the day when former leader Chelsea fell, Citi showed a complete advantage with a 3 to 1 victory at Watford, helping Guardiola’s team win three of the last four league titles. We showed off a fluid pass game.

Bernard Shiva scored twice after the opening round in the early stages of Raheem Sterling. Citi once again proved that the striker could work perfectly even if it wasn’t included in the lineup. It was the fifth straight victory for Citi, who beat Liverpool by one point and Chelsea by two points in the 15th round.

“It’s always better to be at the top of the league than second, third and fourth, but it’s still early,” Silva said.

West Ham shook the title race by beating Chelsea 3–2 at home early in the match. Liverpool then needed Divock Origi’s injured goal to push Jurgen Klopp’s team to the top and win a 1-0 victory at Wolverhampton. A few hours.

However, the city was ahead from the start of the second half of the kick-off.

Sterling decided on an opener in the 4th minute. The city used a loose pass, Phil Foden crossed the center and Sterling headed home unmarked. On the 31st, Silva doubled the lead by interweaving two defenders before throwing the ball past goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

The city had full control of the first half, with 81% occupancy, allowing Silva to add more goals before scoring a third with a clever curled effort in the upper corner on the 63rd. ..

After bouncing off the post, Watford pulled back one through Cucho Hernandez, who followed up his shot, rejecting Pep Guardiola’s side for the ninth clean sheet of the season.

Chelsea stumble

West Ham is a significant obstacle to England’s top teams.

The David Moyes team has already handed Liverpool the only defeat in the league, defeating Tottenham and knocking out both Manchester clubs from the League Cup. This victory highlighted Hammer’s own top four qualifications, even though he needed a slow goal to complete his comeback.

Arthur Masuaku fired a speculative cross in the 87th minute from the left side, heading towards the goal and surprised Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Mendy put out a dove to keep the ball out, but he was only able to push the ball inside a post near him.

“It was a little lucky goal,” Moise admitted. “But you have to put the ball in the box, you have to try it.”

Chelsea led the heading of Chiago Silva and the noble volley from Mason Mount twice, while West Ham took a penalty from Manuel Lanzini and a low shot from the edge of the area of ​​Jarrod Bowen both times. I’m back.

Mendy has also been penalized, and manager Thomas Tuchel will slip up further after losing five points in the last three games following a one-on-one draw with Manchester United last weekend. I know I can’t afford it.

“It’s hard to play here, but we made too many personal mistakes. We were punished against Manchester United and Watford,” Tuchel said. “If you want to get results at this level, you need to minimize mistakes.”

Liverpool slows it down

Liverpool’s high-flying attacks appeared to be ultimately suppressed by the side of the stubborn wolf. After that, Origi achieved yet another important second half goal.

Mo Salah cut the ball as a substitute in four minutes of injury time, and Origi turned before passing goalkeeper Jose Sa.

Liverpool haven’t failed to score in the league since March, scoring four goals in each of the last three games. However, the Reds struggled to maximize the pressure on the resolute wolf. Sarah, Sadio Mané and Thiago Alcantara also missed a chance in search of a winner.

However, Oriji continues to grow at the crucial moment. Forwards rarely start under the crop, but have been added to the list of late scores, including the 96-minute winner at the 2018 Merseyside Derby and the goal against Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League final. ..

Newcastle has finally won the Premier League, with 15 games in the season.

Callum Wilson scored in the second half of the first half and Newcastle beat Burnley 1-0 in a match between relegated fighters.

Wilson scored in the 40th minute after Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope couldn’t control Joe Willock’s cross.

This victory was also Newcastle’s first victory under new coach Eddie Howe, who was hired to replace Steve Bruce, who was dismissed last month.

Burnley was undefeated in five games, but was able to collect only one shot at the target at St. James’s Park.

Eight minutes of injuries, Neal Maupay’s goal saved Brighton’s one-on-one draw in Southampton.

Maupay responded earliest to a close-range tap after Jakub Moder’s free kick, denying Ralph Hasenhuttle’s third anniversary as Southampton coach. Armando Broja’s smart finish led Southampton in 29th place.
