It was an eventful week of football in Premier League amidst gloomy atmosphere in the country amidst the passing of their longest-serving monarch. The footballing community paid its tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and continued to produce the football this league is known for.
In Wolverhampton, the hosts were reduced to 10-men very early in the game against a dangerous Manchester City unit. City wasted no time to get going, and scored three goals with ease, threatening to add further. Erling Haaland scored his 11th goal in the league this season, whilst Jack Grealish and Phil Foden scored on either sides of his strike.
Tottenham and Leicester City produced one of the matches of 2022/23, which saw eight goals in total. Leicester took an early lead through Youri Tielemans, but Harry Kane equalized two minutes later from a Kulusevski corner. Spurs were rampant with set pieces, scoring another through Eric Dier, but James Maddison’s equalizer set things up well at 2-2 for the second half.
After Rodrigo Bentancur scored two minutes into the second half, an inspired substitution from Conte saw the hosts go berserk. Heung-Min Son, who did not start the game, broke his long-lasting goalless spell with a stunning hattrick within 13 minutes, as Tottenham continued to remain unbeaten with a staggering 6-2 win.
Arsenal went down to Manchester United a few days ago, but were back in full flow at the Brentford Community Stadium. William Saliba and Gabriel Jesus scored in a space of 11 minutes to keep them in the driver’s seat at half-time. Fabio Vieira, Arsenal’s new addition to the midfield this season, scored his first goal for the club with a stunning long-range effort as the Gunners rounded off a 3-0 win away from home.
In other results, Jacon Ramsey’s goal saw Aston Villa pick up three points in a 1-0 win against Southampton. Fulham came from behind to beat Nottingham Forest in a pulsating clash, which saw Tosin Adarabioyo, Joao Palhinha and Harrison Reed score for the winning side. Neal Maupay’s first goal for Everton helped them win crucial three points against West Ham in Merseyside.
