Premier League Game Week 10 My Review (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool)
All three teams involved in games in week 10 of the Premier League managed to collect the three points on offer. Manchester United sit in eight place on the Premier League table, which illustrates how good the standard of football is in the Premier League as many experts would have predicted United to be further up the table at this stage of the season. Liverpool and Chelsea remain undefeated. The results leave Liverpool and Chelsea second and third on the table respectively.
Manchester United v Everton My Review
Paul Pogba was awarded a penalty just after the midway point of the first half. Pogba took the resultant penalty, which was well saved by Everton goal keeper Jordan Pickford, but Pogba managed to put the rebound into the back of the net to break the dead lock. Anthony Martial continued on his good form from last season with a sublime finish early in the second half to make the score two-nil in favour of United. Bernard missed a fairly straight forward opportunity to peg a goal back for Everton. Chris Smalling conceded a penalty, Gylfi Sigurdsson converted the resultant penalty, but the score was two-one in favour of United at the completion of the game.
Burnley v Chelsea My Review
Chelsea cruised to victory in this contest, in spite of being without their best player in Eden Hazard. Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea a one-nil lead midway through the first half. Ross Barkley made the score two-nil in Chelsea’s favour. Willian gave Chelsea a comfortable three goal advantage. Ruben Loftus-Cheek put the icing on the cake for the visitors to make the final score four-ni.
Liverpool v Cardiff My Review
Liverpool were expected to win this game comfortably and that’s exactly what they did. Sometimes those games that you are expected to win can be tougher than they appear on paper, but that wasn’t the case in this contest. Liverpool managed to cruise to a four-one victory. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool a one goal lead scoring the only goal of the first half. Sadio Mane scored a brace, while Xherdan Shaqiri put the result beyond doubt, while for Cardiff Callum Paterson scored their only goal. The final score was four-one in favour of the hosts.
