Sunday 5th November Premier League Results:

Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 0 Crystal Palace

The first football match of the day saw Tottenham play Crystal Palace at home and saw Paulo Gazzaniga may his debut as the Spur’s goalkeeper, continuing of their success in the Champions League Tottenham had a dominant performance controlling more than 2/3rds of the possession and the majority of the game being spent in Crystal Palace’s half of the field. Despite this dominant performance Crystal Palace did end with more shots on target, with 3 to just 2 from Tottenham, however Tottenham made the most of their chances with a goal in the 64th minute by Son Heung-min.

Manchester City 3 – 1 Arsenal

The second match of the day was one of the most eagerly awaited fixtures of the year as 1st place Man City face 5th place Arsenal at home in the Premier League, and this Premier League fixture did not fail to disappoint with a total of 4 goals being scored; 1 by Arsenal and 3 by Man City.

Manchester City started of strong retaining the majority of possession, something they continued until the end of the game, this pressure lead to an early goal by Kevin De Bruyne in the 19th minute leaving the score line at 1-0 to Man City at half-time. Play resumed after the break with a Sergio Aguero penalty in the 50th minute hitting the back of the net. The new Arsenal signing Lacazette brought some hope back to the away fans with a 65th minute goal but Gabriel Jesus responded with a goal himself in the 74nd minute ensuring 3 points for Manchester City as they continue their dominant start to the season, getting 31 points in their first 11 games!

Chelsea 1 – 0 Manchester United

Another early awaited fixture took place today as 2nd place Manchester United were away at 4th place Chelsea, with Man United just 4 points in front of Chelsea a win for the Blue’s would see them close the gap to just 1 point and a win is what they got!

Chelsea played a very attacking orientated form of football which not only gave them the majority of possession but allowed them to have a whopping 8 shots on target of which 1 of them created a goal, this goal was scored by Alvaro Morata in the 55th minute with a chance made by an excellent cross from Cesar Azpilicueta. This goal was much to relieve of the home fans as it was beginning to look like they would never break United’s defence which until that point were almost flawless. It wasn’t looking like either team would score until this point as Man United were playing a very defensive game and looked to be aiming for a 0-0 draw instead of going for a victory.

Everton 3 – 2 Watford

The final game of the day saw Everton face Watford at home in a nail biting game that could of gone either way with Watford being very dominant in the first half and the first 20 minutes of the second half and Everton coming back after that point looking like a brand new team! This close game was made even tenser with 12 minutes of injury time.

This superb game began the score line in the 46th minute with a goal from Watford’s Richarlison and later followed by a second goal for Watford from Kabasele in the 64th minute. Despite Watford dominating possession they struggled to get any of their shots onto the target, something Everton did not struggle with as proven by their first goal in the 67th minute by Niasse and a goal shortly after in the 74th minute by Calvert-Lewin. As the game approached the ends both fans were expecting a draw but Jose Holebas brought down Aaron Lennon in the box and gifted Everton’s Leighton Baines a penalty that he was never going to miss. There was a chance for Watford to rescue the game when the Everton goalkeeper Pickford brought down Richarlison but Cleverley missed from the penalty spot giving a final score of 3-2 in favour of Everton in a game that we will not be forgetting anytime soon!
