Saturdays Premier League Review

Chelsea travelled to reigning champions Leicester, looking to get their title hopes back on track after losing to Tottenham 10 days ago. Despite dropping star striker Diego Costa, Chelsea were far too strong, and a goal from Alonso giving them a 1-0 half time lead. In the second half, they ramped up the pressure, with Alonso netting his second and Pedro finishing the game off to give the league leaders a 0-3 win and move them 7 points clear.

Second place Tottenham kept up the pressure with a 4-0 win against West Bromwich, thanks to a Harry Kane hat-trick and a Gareth McAuley own goal. The result leaves them in second, 7 points behind Chelsea and a point ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool who play Man United today. Another team that is starting to find some goal scoring form is Arsenal, who beat Swansea City 0-4 at the Liberty Stadium. Goals from in-form pair, Gouid and Sanchez, alongside own goals by Cork and Naughton, leaves the Gunners in 4th, two points above Man City who play Everton today. Over at the London Stadium, West Ham entertained Crystal Palace, who were still looking for their first win under new manager Sam Allardyce. The Hammers left it late, but thanks to goals from Feghouli, Lanzini and Carroll, whose overhead effort could be yet another contender for goal of the season.

Finally, after Stoke’s 3-1 defeat of Sunderland, Hull City climbed off the bottom thanks to a 3-1 win at home to Bournemouth. When Stanlislas netted for Bournemouth after only 3 minutes, it seemed like business as usual for the Tigers, but with new boss Marco Silva in charge for his first Premier League game, two goals to Hernadez and a Mings own goal gave the Tigers victory and moved them 2 places off the bottom, and on level points with Crystal Palace.
