Ups, Man United Fail Again!



Share This Post!
Another thrilling Premier League weekend is behind us. This time, we saw Southampton setting the record for the highest victory this season, we saw Chelsea continuing their good run and we saw another failure of the Red Devils. So let’s start!

Southampton 8 Sunderland 0

Who would’ve thought that Southampton have the quality to beat a Premier League team with so many goals. There weren’t many people who gave the Soton much chances for staying above the relegation zone in the new season, let alone getting near the top. At the moment, they are on the 3rd spot with just a point less than Manchester City, who are on the 2nd place.

The key man for Southampton brilliant form is Dusan Tadic, a midfielder who scored a goal and put 4 assists to his name in the trashing of Sunderland. But, the Serb isn’t the only one who got in the spotlight on Saturday. Pelle scored twice on that game, more than Cork, Mane and Wanayama, who scored a goal each. The own goals of Vergini and Bridcutt make it total 8 goals for the hosts.

Manchester City 4 Tottenham 1

The same day, another trashing happened. However, this one might be of a higher importance as 2 potential title candidates clashed in Manchester. The Citizens demolished the Spurs 4-1 and got back into the title race with Chelsea. Sergio Aguero was the hero of the game as he scored all 4 goals for Manchester City. He could’ve done even better if it wasn’t for Hugo Lloris. The goalie saved the net (and his team’s pride) on few occasions and even saved one of the penalties.

Newcastle 1 Leicester 0

Newcastle have finally won a game. You might think beating Leicester City (a former Championship club) isn’t a big deal, but for Newcastle it is. This is the first victory of the Magpies this season and the 3 points from this match have lifted them higher from the bottom. They still are in the relegation zone, but now have much more confidence for the next games.

Crystal Palace 1 Chelsea 2

Diego Costa is definitely the crucial man for Chelsea success this season. Against Crystal Palace, they played without the Spaniard and a disaster almost happened. The final score was 2-1 Chelsea, but when Azpilicueta picked a red card in the first half, the things didn’t seem so bright for the London Blues. Luckily for them, the Basque wasn’t the only one who got sent off. Crystal Palace’s center back got his second yellow card on the game, just 4 minutes after Chelsea’s full back.

Everton 3 Aston Villa 0

The same day, Everton won comfortably against Aston Villa. The final score was 3-0, which was a bit surprising, knowing that the Toffies were in a really poor form before the game. The win over the Villans brought Everton on the 13th spot, still far away from they’d like to be.

Burnley 1 West Ham 3

Same as Everton, West Ham also scored 3 times on Saturday. They won against Burnley in an away match, which they totally dominated. The final score was 3-1 West Ham, but it could’ve been much higher if the Hammers used their goal chances.

Arsenal 2 Hull 2

The only surprise that happened on Saturday was the 2-2 draw at the Emirates. Arsenal played Hull City and were massive favorites in that duel. Everything started well for the Gunners, who got in the lead with a goal by Sanchez in 13’. But then, Hull took over and started attacking with all they got. It paid off, 4 minutes later when Diame equalized and in 46’ when Abel Hernandez brought Hull the lead.

Now it was time for Arsenal to attack. They tried and tried, the ball was in their possession all the time, but Hull City managed to repel all of their actions until the stoppage time. Alexis Sanchez once against proved his €42.5M-worth transfer from Barcelona wasn’t a waste. The Chilean playmaker assisted Welbeck for the late equalizer.

QPR 2 Liverpool 3

Two matches were played on Sunday and both games might be considered surprises. The first one is the Liverpool victory over QPR. The peculiar thing about it is that until 87’, Liverpool were leading 1-0 thanks to Dunne’s own goal, 20 minutes earlier.

QPR’s attacker Vargas equalized, but just 3 minutes later Coutinho brought Liverpool the lead again. But Vargas struck again. This time, in 90’ + 2’. The final score was set in 90'+5, when the ex-Tottenham player, Steven Caulker scored an own goal.

Stoke 2 Swansea 1

The second match on Sunday was played against Stoke and Swansea, who were flying very high before the match. The hosts came in the match as slight favorites, not so much because of their own quality, but because of the injury problems Swansea have been facing lately. The Swans played without several crucial players, which is why the loss to Stoke didn’t come as a surprise.

Still, the visitors started the match ambitiously, scoring a penalty in 34’. They held the lead almost until the end of the first half, but an own goal happened which brought Stoke the equalizer. Jonathan Walters set the final score in 76’.

WBA 2 Manchester United 2

The final match of the game week 8 of the premier League was at the same time the biggest surprise of the round. Again Manchester United and again a failure against a much weaker side. This Monday, West Bromwich Albion were those who took a point from the Red Devils.

Just when we thought they were out the abyss, Manchester United fell back in. Something is definitely wrong with this team. Way too much money was invested and their management wants results. Everything but a win against sides like WBA is a complete disaster. If they can’t beat WBA, what should we expect from them next week, when they host the duel with table leaders, Chelsea?

Next Week

Besides the clash of Premier League heavyweights, Manchester United and Chelsea, we’re going to see a few more thrilling duel next weekend. The eyes of the public are looking at Southampton, wondering can they make another sensational win. This time, their opponents are Stoke.

Manchester City will go for a win over West Ham and hope for their city-rivals’ win as that would get them much closer to the top spot. Liverpool will take on Hull City, while Sunderland will look to recuperate from the humiliation in the previous round with a good result over Arsenal.
