Derby delight for City

Manchester City defeated Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford, in a match reflecting Pep Guardiola‘s dominance. Erling Haaland gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot before doubling their lead with a header.

The Norwegian was then unselfish in squaring the ball for Phil Foden to score, rather than going for the goal to complete his hat trick. Despite the result, City are still third in the Premier League, behind both North London teams. As for Eric ten Hag‘s side, they languish in eighth place in the division.


Spurs stay at the summit

Tottenham Hotspur kept their place at the top of the Premier League after they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park. We are now ten games into the season, so Ange Postecoglou‘s side must be considered title contenders. Without European football, they stand a very good chance in this campaign.

Joel Ward‘s own goal gave Spurs the lead against Palace before Heung-Min Son doubled their advantage. Jordan Ayew scored a good goal to get one back for the home side but it was too little too late.

Arsenal destroyed Sheffield United 5-0 to maintain their second-place position and remain in the title hunt. Eddie Nketiah scored a hat-trick and could have put his name amongst Andrey Arshavin and Thierry Henry to have scored four in a single Premier League match for the Gunners.

However, Nketiah was unselfish in allowing Fabio Vieira to take their penalty and get on the scoresheet. Takehiro Tomiyasu then completed the rout with a goal in added time.

It was a heavy defeat for the Blades who remain rooted to the foot of the division with just one point.

Best of the rest

Chelsea suffered a shock 2-0 home defeat to Brentford in a West London derby. The result leaves Mauricio Pochettino‘s side down in 11th place in the league.

Pressure was eased on Andoni Iraola after his Bournemouth side defeated Burnley 2-1 in a relegation six-pointer.

The Premier League returns on Saturday, November 4.
