General Overview: Big Clubs Split in the Dark
First of all, let’s take a look at the results of the matches in Section 12.
Please see the table below.
|Home Team||Score||Away Team|
First of all, I’d like to focus on the results of the so-called Big Six clubs (Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United).
Liverpool won the big club matchup, of course, but the top teams of Chelsea and Manchester City all won together, and Tottenham got their first win since Antonio Conte took over as manager. On the other hand, Arsenal and Manchester United lost badly. The result 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, who has been leading the league with a steady performance since the start of the league, showed a dignified victory against a difficult Leicester side.
After pushing Leicester from the beginning, Chelsea took the lead in the 14th minute with Rüdiger’s header from a corner kick. Chelsea, who had been pushing Leicester from the beginning, took the lead in the 14th minute with a header from Rüdiger off a corner kick, and it was difficult to break down the Chelsea defense, which has conceded four goals in 11 Premier League games. The game ended with two more goals. While Chelsea maintained their position at the top of the table, Leicester had a tough time without a win in their last three matches.
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)
The main attraction of this match was the new Aston Villa manager, Steven Gerrard. After dismissing Dean Smith due to poor results, Aston Villa appointed Gerrard, the former manager of Rangers in Scotland, as their new manager. There was a lot of attention on the former Liverpool legend’s return to the Premier League and how he would make his first appearance.
The result of the game was a complete victory for Aston Villa. Aston Villa won the match, scoring goals in the closing minutes to win their first match under the new manager.
Match 3: Burnley vs Crystal Palace
- Venue: Turf Moor
- Score: 3-3
- Scorers: Christian Benteke (8th minute/Crystal Palace), Ben Mee (19th minute/Burnley), Chris Wood (27th minute/Burnley), Christian Benteke (36th minute/Crystal Palace), Mark Guech (41st minute/Crystal Palace), Maxwel Cornet (49th minute/Burnley)
The matchup between the two teams, which are known for their ability to counter with solid defense, turned out to be a hard-hitting contest. Both teams scored early in the game, and in the first half alone, a total of five goals were scored by both teams.
It looked like it was going to be a flashy game, but the second half turned out to be a quiet affair. After Burnley scored the equalizer 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 Rassells (10th minute/Newcastle), Ivan Toney (11th minute/Brentford), Rico Henry (31st minute/Brentford), Joelrington (39th minute/Newcastle), Own Goal (61st minute/Brentford), Alan St. Maximan (75th minute/Newcastle)
Newcastle, which is undergoing a reformation under the moneyed owners who bought the club, appointed Eddie Howe as the new manager. Newcastle appointed Eddie Howe as their new manager, and the young manager, who has experience in promoting Bournemouth from the third division to the Premier League, tried to win his first Premier League game, but the result was a 3-3 draw. However, the result was a 3-3 draw, and their first win will have to wait until the next game.
Match 5: Norwich vs Southampton
- Venue: Carrow Road
- Score: 2-1
- Scorers: Shea Adams (4 mins/Southampton), Teemu Pukki (7 mins/Norwich), Grant Hanley (79 mins/Norwich)
Norwich dismissed 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 got underway early, and by the 10th minute of the first half, the score was 1-1. The score was deadlocked from there, but Norwich was able to get the winner in the last minute of the game. The game ended with Norwich taking three points from their new team.

- Scorers: Joshua King (28th minute/Watford), Ismail Salle (44th minute/Watford), Donny van de Beek (50th minute/Manchester United), Joao Pedro (90th minute/Watford), Emmanuel Dennis (90th minute/Watford)
Manchester United is looking for a win after losing the Manchester derby in the previous week. Their opponents are Watford, who are also struggling. With rumors of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being dismissed as manager, Manchester United would love to get three points, but the result was a surprise defeat.

West Ham, who have been making great strides this season, including a third place finish in the league, will be at Wolverhampton’s home. West Ham, who have been making great strides this season with their third place finish in the league, traveled to Wolverhampton for a home game. They were hoping to get a point against Wolverhampton to keep up with Chelsea and Manchester City, who are at the top of the table, but they lost scoreless. However, they lost scoreless and fell to the fourth place in the league.
Match 8: Liverpool vs Arsenal
- Venue: Anfield
- Score: 4-0

Match 9: Manchester City vs Everton
- Venue: Etihad Stadium
- Score: 3-0
- Scorers: Raheem Sterling (44th minute/Manchester City), Rhodri (55th minute/Manchester City), Bernardo Silva (86th minute/Manchester City)
What stood out in this match was the solidity of Manchester City. They dominated the game from start to finish and played a perfect game. Everton was no easy opponent either, but the result was a crushing 3-0 victory. They are still in the early stages of the league, but they are definitely the favorites to win the championship along with Chelsea and Liverpool. Everton’s defeat left them without a win in six games. I think it’s time for manager Rafael Benitez’s neck to get cold.
Match 10: Tottenham vs Leeds

- Score: 2-1
- Scorers: Daniel James (44th minute / Leeds), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (58th minute / Tottenham), Sergio Reguilon (69th minute / Tottenham)
