General overview: the big clubs are split between the dark and the light
Let’s take a look at the results of the first 12 games of the season.
Take a look at the table below.
|Home Team||Score||Away Team|
First of all, let’s take a look at the results of the so-called Big Six clubs (Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United).
Liverpool won the big club showdown, of course, while Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham all won their first game under Antonio Conte. Tottenham also picked up their first win under Antonio Conte, while Arsenal and Manchester United lost badly. It was a clear split between the big clubs.
Match 1: Leicester vs Chelsea
- Venue: King Power Stadium
- Score: 0-3
- Scorers: Antonio Rudiger (14th minute, Chelsea), Engolo Kante (28th minute, Chelsea), Christian Pulisic (71st minute, Chelsea)
Chelsea, the league leaders since the start of the season, came from behind to claim a convincing victory against a difficult Leicester side.
After pressing Leicester from the outset, Chelsea took the lead in the 14th minute through Rüdiger’s header from a corner kick. Chelsea had been pressing Leicester from the outset, and in the 14th minute, Rüdiger’s header from a corner gave them the lead. Two more goals and the game was over. Chelsea remain top of the table, while Leicester are without a win in their last three games.
Match 2: Aston Villa vs Brighton
- Venue: Villa Park
- Score: 2-0
- Scorers: Olly Watkins (84th minute, Aston Villa), Tyrone Mings (89th minute, Aston Villa)
One of the highlights of the match was the appointment of new Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard. After sacking Dean Smith due to poor results, Aston Villa appointed Gerrard, the former manager of Rangers in Scotland, as their new manager. With the former Liverpool legend back in the Premier League, there was a lot of interest to see how he would fare in his first season in charge.
The result was an emphatic win for Aston Villa. Aston Villa scored a couple of goals in the closing stages of the game to win their first game in charge.
Match 3: Burnley v Crystal Palace
- Venue: Turf Moor
- Score: 3-3
- Scorers: Christian Benteke (8 mins/Crystal Palace), Ben Mee (19 mins/Burnley), Chris Wood (27 mins/Burnley), Christian Benteke (36 mins/Crystal Palace), Mark Guech (41 mins/Crystal Palace) Maxwell Cornet (49 mins, Burnley).
The two teams, both of whom are known for their ability to counter-attack from a defensive position, went toe to toe. The game started with a bang, with both teams scoring five goals in the first half.
However, the second half was a much quieter affair. After Burnley equalised in the 49th minute, there was no more scoring and the game ended in a draw.
Match 4: Newcastle vs Brentford
- Venue: St James’ Park
- Score: 3-3
- Scorers: Jamaal Lassells (10 mins/Newcastle), Ivan Toney (11 mins/Brentford), Rico Henry (31 mins/Brentford), Joelrington (39 mins/Newcastle), Own Goal (61 mins/Brentford), Alan St. Maximan ( 75 mins/Newcastle)
Newcastle have been reformed under the moneyed owners who bought the club and appointed Eddie Howe as their new manager. Newcastle appointed Eddie Howe as their new manager and the youngster, who has experience of taking Bournemouth from the Third Division to the Premier League, was looking for his first win in the Premier League, but the result was a 3-3 draw. The result was a 3-3 draw, so the first win will have to wait until the next round.
Match 5: Norwich v Southampton
- Venue: Carrow Road
- Score: 2-1
- Scorers: Shea Adams (4 mins/Southampton), Teemu Pukki (7 mins/Norwich), Grant Hanley (79 mins/Norwich)
Norwich sacked Daniel Farke, who led them to promotion to the Premier League, and appointed Dean Smith, who had been dismissed from Aston Villa, as their new manager. Smith, who led Aston Villa to success last season, will be tasked with turning around a team that is sitting at the bottom of the table.
The game started well, with the score at 1-1 by the 10th minute of the first half. The score was deadlocked until the last minute of the game when Norwich scored the winner. The game ended with Norwich taking all three points under their new management.
Match 6: Watford v Manchester United
- Venue: Vicarage Road
- Score: 4-1
- Scorers: Joshua King (28 mins/Watford), Ismail Salle (44 mins/Watford), Donny van der Beek (50 mins/Manchester United), Joao Pedro (90 mins/Watford), Emmanuel Dennis (90 mins/Watford)
Manchester United are looking for a win after losing the Manchester derby in the previous round. The other side is Watford, who are also struggling. With rumours of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being sacked as manager, Manchester United will be hoping for three points, but the result was a disaster. After the game, it was announced that Sourshal had been sacked.

Match 7: Wolverhampton vs West Ham
- Venue: Molineux Stadium
- Score: 1-0
- Scorer: Raul Jimenez (59 mins / Wolverhampton)
West Ham, who have been on a great run this season and are third in the league, will be at home to Wolverhampton. West Ham were hoping for a point against Wolverhampton to keep up with Chelsea and Manchester City at the top of the table, but they lost scoreless. They lost scoreless and dropped to fourth in the league.
Match 8: Liverpool vs Arsenal
- Venue: Anfield
- Score: 4-0
- Scorers: Sadio Mane (39′ / Liverpool), Diogo Jota (52′ / Liverpool), Mohamed Salah (73′ / Liverpool), Takumi Minamino (77′ / Liverpool)
In a showdown between two big clubs, Liverpool and Arsenal, it was Liverpool who came out on top. Both sides failed to create any big chances from the outset, but the game got off to a flying start when Mane scored for Liverpool. In the end, it was Liverpool who scored the four goals to secure a convincing victory over Arsenal.

Match 9: Manchester City vs Everton
- Venue: Etihad Stadium
- Score: 3-0
- Scorers: Raheem Sterling (44 mins/ Manchester City), Rhodri (55 mins/ Manchester City), Bernardo Silva (86 mins/ Manchester City)
The highlight of the game was Manchester City’s solidity. They dominated the game from start to finish and played a perfect game. Everton were not easy opponents, but the result was a convincing 3-0 win. Although it is still early in the season, Everton are still favourites to win the league, along with Chelsea and Liverpool. Everton’s defeat leaves them without a win in six games. I think it’s time for Rafael Benitez’s neck to start getting cold.
Match 10: Tottenham vs Leeds
- Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
- Score: 2-1
- Scorers: Daniel James (44th minute, Leeds), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (58th minute, Tottenham), Sergio Reguilon (69th minute, Tottenham)
Tottenham, looking for their first win in the Premier League under new manager Antonio Conte, host Marcelo Bielsa’s difficult Leeds side.
Tottenham got off to a slow start, but scored in the 58th and 69th minutes. In the second half, Tottenham scored in the 58th and 69th minutes to take the lead. The game ended with Tottenham’s first win under their new management.
