Premier League Game Week 12 My Review (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool)
This time around only one out of the three teams I am reporting on got the three points on offer. Manchester sit in eighth place on the Premier League ladder. Chelsea and Liverpool are remarkably still unbeaten after twelve matches in the Premier League. Chelsea sit in third place on the table, while Liverpool are in fourth position. This week’s matches are indicative of why the Premier League is possibly the most exciting and intriguing in the world, because it’s so competitive and the results are unpredictable.
Manchester City v Manchester United My Review
Marcus Rashford earned a well deserved starting spot, but failed to make the impact on the game that he is capable of. David Silva made the score one-nil early in favour of City thanks to an assist from Bernardo Silva, which was the score that the game remained at when half time came around. Sergio Aguero made the score two-nil in favour of City early in the second half. Anthony Martial took a penalty that was awarded to United before the midway point of the second half to give United some hope. Bernardo Silva provided his second assist of the game for substitute Ilkay Gundogan to profit from to make the score three-one in favour of City and put the result of the contest beyond doubt.
Chelsea v Everton My Review
This was a game that Chelsea would have expected to win on paper, but of course the game isn’t played on paper. It was a fairly monotonous game with Chelsea controlling possession and the tempo of the match, but they failed to capitalise on their dominance and convert it onto the scoreboard.
Liverpool v Fulham My Review
Liverpool controlled possession and the balance of play as was expected with Fulham struggling to pick up points this season in the Premier League. Liverpool broke the deadlock shortly before half time thanks to a goal from Mohamed Salah. Xherdan Shaqiri made the score two-nil in favour of Liverpool shortly after the half time break, which was the score that the game remained at when the game was finished.
