Premier League Matchweek 8 Review: Arsenal, Chelsea Taste Shocking Defeats



Watford defeated Arsenal with a vivacious second-half show which enabled them to turn the table in the wake of trailing at the break, securing maximum three in stoppage time.

The first half was a calm undertaking, with chances at a premium. The two sides generally levelled on possession and display, as Watford had changed to a back-three formation to coordinate their opponent.

Hornet defence had be on their toes to manage lots of perilous crosses from the Gunners but the home side shielded well to stop any chances for the visitors. Arsenal lead through a first-half header from Per Mertesacker.

After the break, substitute Ozil wasted a clear channce that would have put the Gunners on 2-0 adavantage, before a slight challenge from Bellerin result to a penalty, which Troy Denney fired home to draw the hosts on level.


The determined Watford then began to search for the winning goal which they eventually got deep into the stoppage time when Tom Cleverly lashed home a lose ball  and send the home fans into a wild jubilation.

City Rain Seven Heavenly Goals On Hapless Stoke City

It was a shower of goals at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City proceeded from where they stop before the international break running seven heavenly goal riot against hapless Stoke City.

Gabriel Jesus breaks the deadlock for Pep Guardiola led side just after sixteen minutes of play before multiplying the lead two minutes after. David Silva made it three and the Citizens staggeringly rushed to three-nil lead in ten minutes.

One minute before halftime, Stokes pulled back a goal with Diouf’s strike hits Fabian Delph and circled in.

After the break, the Potters reduced the scoreline again with Diouf’s header finding the net to make it 3-2, looking like they’ve got some hidden weapon to unleash on City but little did the home side realize that they’ve stepped on Cobra’s tail for lessening the goal count.

Gabriel Jesus broadened City’s lead before Fernandinho, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva all ran crazy with goal tearing the visitors and lessening them to shreds without any sign of sympathy.

Who will stop this widespread and fire -powering Manchester City goal riot?
