Manchester City continued their excellent form to record their 15th straight premier league victory with a 4-0 thrashing of Swansea City in South Wales last night. Two goals either side of the break by David Silva long with goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero ensured they stay 11 points clear at the top.
Cross city rivals Manchester United kept up their pressure to remind in 2nd place with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford. Summer Signing Romelu Lukaku proving the difference with a 25th minute goal that took his personally tally to 14 for the season. Lukaku could have had another late on if not for the visitor’s keeper Begovic, while Anthony Martial also missed the follow up in front of the goal.
Tottenham jumped into 4th place only on goal difference with a 2-0 win over Brighton at Wembley, Serge Aurier opening the scoring shortly before the break, for the on-form Son Heung-min to ensure they took the points, minutes from the end with his fourth goal in as many games.
Liverpool failed to take advantage of their recent good form having to settle for a 0-0 draw with West Bromwich at Anfield, the visitors defence was the defence, frustrating the Liverpool attack which has been on fire recently. Roberto Firmino and Mohmmad Salah both missing excellent chances to secure the win, while Hal Robson-Kanu had a few opportunities to steal it for West Bromwich. Dominic Solanke came off the bench late on and thought he had scored the winner, only for his goal to be disallowed for Hand ball, before his next effort was cleared off the line allowing the West Brom defence a moral victory.
Hot of the back of their weekend win against Chelsea, West Ham under new boss David Moyes nearly pulled off another shock, this time against Arsenal at the London Stadium. Unfortunately, they failed to find the net in a 0-0 draw but the point leaves them level with Crystal Palace and West Brom on the edge of the relegation zone. For the Gunners they have failed to win any of their last 3 premier league games and have now dropped down to 7th place.
