Eddie Howe’s boys going strong
Bournemouth have gone about their business quietly and unnoticed by the rest of the league. The coastal team now sit 6th in the league after another impressive display against Fulham at craven cottage. Wilson continued his scoring form by netting 2 goals and Brooks was also on the score sheet to hand Eddie Howe’s boys a well earned 3-0 win.
Wolves created plenty of chances away to Brighton and perhaps deserved a share of the spoils. However it was Brighton who walked away with 3 points after a 1-0 win with Murray grabbing his 100th goal for the club. Brighton have now won their last three games of which for them is a club record so well done Chris Hughton (old Spurs boy, if I do say so myself).
Liverpool entertained their supporters with a fantastic performance against lowly Cardiff City at Anfield on saturday. Mo Salah opened the scoring after ten minutes before the ever reliable Mane popped up with 2 goals along with another from Shaqiri. Cardiff did pull one back through Paterson but it wasn’t enough against the might of the joined premier league leaders.
Watford got back to winning ways after the 3-0 victory against Huddersfield to lift them into 7th position in the league whilst Southampton and Newcastle ended goalless although the saints did miss a great chance at the death to take all 3 points. Crystal Palace earned a great draw in the match against their London rivals Arsenal after the game ended 2-2 but Arsenal will feel they deserved to win the game (especially after the superb effort from Xhaka).
Chelsea were away to Burnley and made a statement to the leading two teams by coming away with a 4-0 victory. This was a Chelsea performance without the charismatic Hazard and to get this win in this manner away to Burnley shows the Blues are up for the fight and will challenge both Liverpool and Manchester City for the title.
Manchester United also got a win at the weekend with a 2-1 win against Everton after a very rare attacking display (Anthony Martial continuing that goal scoring form). Their neighbours City were away to Spurs and won the match 1-0 after Mahrez put them ahead in the 7th minute. Spurs created chances but didn’t make it count to the disappointment of their loyal fans.
The game at the kingpower stadium between Leicester and Westham ended 1-1 but will be forever remembered for the events that took place after the match. The owner and director of Leicester football club Mr Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha along with four others, lost their lives after the helicopter they were travelling in crashed outside the stadium shortly after takeoff. He will be remembered as the man that brought success to Leicester after they did the unthinking by winning the premier league title. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Vision of success!!!
