In the second half, Manchester City kept their opponents at bay and the game ended 2-0. The score was 2-0, but the difference was much more than that.

Match 3: Brentford vs Norwich
- Venue: Brentford Community Stadium
- Score: 1-2
- Scorers: Mathias Norman (6 mins/Norwich), Teemu Pukki (29 mins/Norwich), Rico Henry (60 mins/Brentford)
Brentford have been very successful this season, beating Arsenal on the opening day of the season to finish 12th in the league despite being promoted. Brentford are in 12th place in the league despite being promoted, while Norwich, also promoted, have had a very difficult start to the season, winning only two games and losing eight.
With such a strong contrast between the two sides, it was expected that the home team would win the game, but the away team defied all expectations. Norwich got their first win of the season.
Match 4: Chelsea vs Burnley
- Venue: Stamford Bridge
- Score: 1-1
- Scorers: Kai Havertz (33 mins/Chelsea), Matej Vydra (79 mins/Burnley)
The match-up between league table leaders Chelsea and relegation-bound Burnley took an unexpected turn.
The home side started the game well, scoring through Kai Havertz in the 33rd minute, but were unable to add to their tally, perhaps due to the injury to their main man Romelu Lukaku. In the 79th minute of the second half, the home side found themselves in a hole in the defensive line and conceded a goal. The game was over, and Chelsea had to settle for a point.
Match 5: Crystal Palace vs Wolverhampton
- Venue: Selhurst Park
- Score: 2-0
- Scorers: Wilfried Zaha (61st minute, Crystal Palace), Conor Gallagher (78th minute, Crystal Palace)
Both teams are unbeaten in their last five league games and both are in good form. Crystal Palace will be looking to build on their wins over Manchester City and Wolverhampton will be looking to build on their wins over Everton.
The game was decided in the last minute of the match. Crystal Palace ace Zaha’s goal was once ruled out for offside, but VAR overturned the decision. The home side added another goal in the 78th minute and held on for the win. The home team won the match with another goal in the 78th minute.
Match 6: Brighton v Newcastle
- Venue: Amex Stadium
- Score: 1-1
- Scorers: Leandro Trossard (24th minute, Brighton), Isaac Hayden (66th minute, Newcastle)
The home side, who have lost just two league games so far this season against the likes of Everton, Leicester, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, were held to a 1-1 draw by Newcastle, who are undergoing a controversial change of ownership. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.
It was a draw that hurt not only Brighton, who will be looking for three points from their opponents at the bottom of the table, but also Newcastle, who will be looking to get out of the relegation zone as soon as possible.
Match 7: Arsenal vs Watford
- Venue: Emirates Stadium
- Score: 1-0
- Scorer: Emile Smith Rowe (56th minute / Arsenal)
A strike from Smith Rowe, Arsenal’s new No.10 for the season, scored the winner as Arsenal continued their good form at home to Watford.
Arsenal’s run of form has been unbelievable since the start of the season, when they lost three games in a row and found themselves in the relegation zone. If Arsenal can win this match as well, they will be in a position to qualify for the Champions League.
Match 8: Everton vs Tottenham
- Venue: Goodison Park
- Score: 0-0
- Scorers: None
In Antonio Conte’s first game in charge of Tottenham, the game ended in a scoreless draw. Despite the lack of goals, the game was very entertaining, with 20 shots from both teams and Everton having a man sent off.
Despite the lack of results, Conte’s men came out of their slump with a bang. It will be interesting to see if the new manager can save a team that is in the middle of the league.
Match 9: Leeds vs Leicester
- Venue: Elland Road
- Score: 1-1
- Scorers: Hafinha (26th minute / Leeds), Harvey Barnes (28th minute / Leicester)
Both teams have struggled to get results this season after their impressive performances last season. Both teams were looking for a way out of their slump, but the result was a draw. Both teams combined for 27 shots in the game, but it was a hard fought draw.
Both teams will be looking for a result in the next round, as they have already proven their ability last season. It will be interesting to see what both teams can do in the next round.

- Scorers: Own Goal (4 mins/Alisson/Liverpool), Trent Alexander-Arnold (41 mins/Liverpool), Pablo Fornals (67 mins/West Ham), Kurt Zouma (74 mins/West Ham), Divock Origi (83 mins/Liverpool)
