AFC Bournemouth Vs Watford 1-1
A dreadful error from Artur Boruc and a missed penalty from Glenn Murray cost Bournemouth as they were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow Premier League new boys Watford on Saturday.
Murray’s first-half header on his full debut had the hosts set to go into the break in front after having the better of the first 45 minutes. Bookmakers and premier league betting fans in particular would have backed Watford top scorer Odion Ighalo to score before the game, and goalkeeper Artur Boruc made that pretty easy by gifting a pass to Ighalo to find the net easily. The goalkeeper had received a routine pass-back from Sylvain Distin, before inexplicably passing straight at Ighalo, allowing the in-form striker to comfortably round him and tap into an empty net.
Swansea City Vs Tottenham Hotspurs 2-2
Christian Eriksen scored two brilliant free-kicks as Tottenham fought back twice to draw 2-2 with Swansea on Sunday. Swansea had taken the lead through Andre Ayew who rose highest to nod home a teasing cross from Jefferson Montero. Christian Eriksen equalised with a fine free kick which wrong footed Fabianski to the delight of the traveling supporters. Harry Kane who has been struggling to replicate last season’s form, scored but at the wrong end, when he put through his own net to give Swansea the lead. he must have been relieved when Christian Eriksen scored another free kick to save a point for Spurs.
Everton Vs Liverpool 1-1
Danny Ings opened the scoring for Liverpool and Romelu Lukaku equalised just before half time to leave the scores at 1-1 prior to half of the game. The intensity of the first half wasn’t matched in the second half as chances were few and far between and the game ended at 1-1. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was relieved of his duties after this match.
Arsenal Vs Manchester United 3-0
Arsenal turned in a devastating first-half performance to storm to a memorable 3-0 Premier League win over Manchester United.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in the space of 74 seconds gave Arsenal a 2-0 lead by the seventh minute at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and Sanchez scored his sixth goal in three matches with an emphatic third in the 19th minute.
Manchester United can have no complaints about this loss, as they were all over the place in the first half, and rarely created chances, apart from a neat turn and shot by Anthony Martial which was saved by Petr Cech. Arsenal dropped their intensity in the second half, knowing fully well that the damage had been done in the first half.
