Manchester United v Newcastle United My Review
Kenedy gave Newcastle the lead early on in the contest to give Manchester United and manager Jose Mourinho a fright. Yoshinori Muto made the score two-nil shortly after. Understandably this made the Manchester United manager agitated and stressed. If Mourinho was feeling the pressure then the shocking start to the game by his team would have increased it. David De Gea made an outstanding reaction save to keep Manchester United in the game. Newcastle deserved a penalty for a hand ball by Ashley Young of Manchester United, but incredibly the penalty wasn’t awarded to them. Remarkably Manchester United managed to score three goals in the last twenty minutes of the match through Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez to give them a much needed three points.
Southampton v Chelsea My Review
Eden Hazard is in amazing form as he has scored a remarkable seven goals that puts him top scorer of the Premier League two goals ahead of the next highest goal scorer in the league. Ross Barkley provided the assist for Hazard to open the scoring for Chelsea. Barkley made the score two-nil in the second half. Hazard helped to make the score three nil as he provided the assist Alvaro Morata who made the score three-nil in stoppage time in the second half. That makes it three assists for the season for Hazard.
Liverpool v Manchester City My Review
The first half was relatively monotonous with the scores level at nil-nil with neither side creating any chances of note. The second half was much of the same with both sides failing to break the deadlock. Manchester City even failed to score a goal from the penalty spot!
