The Premier League Game Week Four was spectacular with marverlous surprises as Everton and Aston Villa maintained their 100 per cent start to the league while at the bottom Burnley, Sheffield United and Scott Parker’s Fulham are still yet to get a point.
Chelsea opened the game week as Franks Lampard’s men found their feet netting four past Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge.
Ben Chilwell who made his first Premier League appearance for the Blues opened the scoring in the 50th minute and provided an assit for Kurt Zouma sixteen minutes later marking his first game with a superb performance. Jorginho scored two penalties and the Blues won the day.
Elsewhere at Goodison Everton maintained their fine form under Carlo Ancelotti as Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the first and his sixth Premier League goal for the 2020/21 campaign against Brighton.
Maupay found the back of the net to get Brighton on level but a goal from Yerri Mina gave the Toffees their lead back. James Rodriguez was also not left out of the party as he scored twice one from an spot kick and Bissouma scored Brighton’s second with Everton winning 4-2.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men held Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in a game of tactical battle as Sterling sent City flying 17 minutes into the game but Leeds summer acquisition, Rodrigo equalised and City only went home with a point from the Elland Road.
Newcastle faced off Burnley at the Saint James’s stadium beating them 3 goals to 1 with goals from Alan Saint-Maximin and two from Callum Wilson seeing them through as Westwood pulled one back for Burnley.
On Sunday the Hammers hammered Leicester City at the London Stadium by three goals to nil as the Foxes struggled to find the net against a formidable West Ham but Harvey Barnes’ consolation goal was disallowed. Antonio, Fornals and Jack Bowen were on the scoresheet for the Hammers.
The Gunners Hosted Sheffield United at the Emirates with Mikel Arteta’s side struggling in the first half. Bukayo Saka opened the scoring for Arsenal 61 minutes into the game with a header from a sweet cross from Hector Bellerin and Nicolas Pepe came in from the bench to add another 3 minutes later but Sheffield posed to stage a fight as McGoldrick pulled one back but Arsenal defended well and took the 3 points.
Wolves at home against Fulham who were in desperate search for a point over the past three weeks struggled as Scott Parker’s men were well organised but Neto found one behind the net in the 56th minute for the home team with Fulham leaving still in search for a point.
At the Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho’s return as a Spurs coach ended with a smile as Tottenham thrashed Manchester United right at the own backyard with 6 goals to 1.
Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring from a spot kick in 2 minutes but Tanguy Ndombele brought Spurs back in the game two minutes later with an equaliser with Son adding another in the 7th minute. Anthony Martial was red carded in a controversial scene with Lamela and the party begun for Spurs as Kane, Son, Aurier and Kane again this time from a penalty demolished United.
Gamweek 4 ended with a shocking result as Aston Villa who were almost relegated last season were in super form against the Championship Liverpool at the Villa Park. Villa showed no mercy as they beat a sluggish Liverpool 7-2.
It was an outstanding performance from Villa’s most expensive signing of all time Ollie Watkins scoring a hatrick against the holding champions on 39 minutes.
McGinn, Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish (twice) were all on the scoresheet for Villa as Mohamed Salah was the only Liverpool attacker to find the net after a poor game from Roberto Firmino. Liverpool’s attack looked quite dormant without Sadio Mane who is in self isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.
In all it was a wonderful football week in the Premier League to watch.
