Saturday 4th November Premier League Results:

Stoke City 2 – 2 Leicester City

A 33 minute goal by Iborra gave Leicester City the lead, but Stoke equalized in the 39th minute with Shaqiri curling in a shot at the far post. Leicester regained the lead in the 60th minute with an excellent goal from Mahrez. Stoke’s super substitute Peter Crouch once again delivered after being brought on from the bench on the 69th minute with an equalizer in the 73rd minute ending the game at 2-2.

The game could of easily ended more favourable for Stoke, who had 7 shots on target but were denied by some excellent saves from the Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, today’s goal from Riyad Mahrez brings his goal tally to 2 goals in 2 games along with 2 assists, showing a return to form for the former PFA Player of the Year.

Huddersfield Town 1 – 0 West Bromwich Albion

Huddersfield Town were at home to West Bromwich Albion in the second game of the day. This was the 2 year anniversary of Huddersfield’s David Wagner managerial appointment at the club and much to his delight he got to watch Huddersfield gain 3 points with a win in this fixture.

The only goal of the game came from Van La Parra in the 44th minute and as a whole the game was uneventful with only 3 shots on target for each of the teams, at one point it was looking like West Brom could equalize as Schindler received a red card in the 57th minute but Huddersfield held on to the victory which continues their impressive current form and sees them sit at 10th in the Premier League!

Newcastle United 0 – 1 AFC Bournemouth

The third game of the day saw Bournemouth achieve a shock victory at Newcastle United late into the second half in injury time, much to the dismay of the home fans!

The 92nd minute goal by Steve Cook was a surprise to both sets of fans who were expecting a goalless draw as neither team were able to make the most of any of their chances on goal, the teams combined had 32 shots but only 9 of those were on target, this win for Bournemouth catapults them up 3 places in the table, from 19th to 16th and out of the relegation zone.

Southampton 0 – 1 Burnley

Burnley achieved their 5th win of the season today as they move their total up to 19 points from 11 games and maintain their 7th place spot in the Premier League, a very impressive feat and their best start to a top flight season since 1973!

If you was just looking at the stats of this game you would assume Southampton to be the winner, they had much more possession, shots & shots on target when compared to the away side Burnley. Burnley over the full 90 minutes only managed 1 shot on target which happened to be the only goal of the match. The goal itself was scored by Vokes in the 81st minute and continues the pattern of them winning by a narrow margin, they are in fact just one goal positive overall in the league, with 10 goals for and 9 goals against, which is in stark contrast to a lot of the teams below them who have scored many more goals but also conceded many more!

Swansea City 0 – 1 Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton continued their unbeaten streak to four football matches with their excellent display while away at Swansea City with another goal from the Brighton star hit man Glenn Murray in the 29th minute. This is Glenn Murray’s 15th goal of the season of which 11 have been from away fixtures! After the initial goal Swansea never looked to equalize with just 2 of their 12 shots being on target and most being attacking play being fended off by the excellent Brighton defence.

This win moves Brighton to 8th in the Premier League, with their recent back-to-back victories away being only the second time they have achieved this feat in the clubs history while being in the top flight of the English Premiership!

West Ham United 1 – 4 Liverpool

Liverpool demonstrated their excellent counterattacking play in this Saturday fixture vs. West Ham producing an impressive 4 goals from 15 chances compared to West Ham’s 1 goal in 6 chances.

Liverpool started strong right from the start whistle with a 21st minute goal by Salah followed up by a 24th minute goal by Matip which shut out any hopes the home fans had for getting a victory against the Reds. The home fans had a small glimmer of hope in the 55th minute with a goal for Lanzini for West Ham, but just 1 minute later Oxlade-Chamberlain scored again making it 3-1.

In the final 15 minutes of the game Salah scored his second goal of the game giving a final score line of 4-1 in favour of Liverpool who because of this result  maintain their 6th place spot in the English Premier League! This continues Liverpool’s excellent recent record where they have scored 10 goals in their last 3 games across all competitions!
