MAN UNITED NAILS EVERTON 2-1 AS CR7 BECOMES CR700
After a 3-2 win against Omonia in the Europa League,Man United traveled to Goodison Park to face everton, the match ending 2-1 in favor of Man United. Alex Iwobi put everton infront through a magnificent strike outside the penalty box. A few minutes later, Man United’s new signing Antony scored an equalizer. A few minutes later, Antony Martial was substituted after showing discomfort at his lap. Ronaldo coming in for him.

Despite having started the season with no open match goal for United, Cristiano Ronaldo  scored a magnificent goal through his left foot afer receiving a wonderful assist from his former Real Madrid counterpart Casemiro. Ronaldo now has a total of 700 club goals in his career so far and still counting.
Following the equalizer, Ten Hag’s squad rightly held a 2-1 lead after dominating play for a substantial portion of the half. Casemiro and Christian Eriksen both had excellent chances, but Bruno Fernandes’ attempt was rejected because it was offside.

With renewed energy, Frank Lampard’s team attempted to regain control of the game early in the second half, but the Toffees struggled to produce chances despite applying more pressure.
With 10 seconds left, Marcus Rashford finally scored, capping a brilliant move that started with a Ronaldo flick-on. The ball was chalked off after a VAR review determined that it had bounced.

MAN CITY SMASHES SOUTHAMPTON 4-0
Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League table with a fabulous 4-0 win over struggling Southampton as Erling Haaland scored again – although his boss Pep Guardiola joked he was disappointed the Norwegian did not score another hat-trick.

Haaland, who had scored trebles in his past three Premier League home games, had spurned a series of good chances before finally finding the net for his 15th goal of the Premier League season, although by that point, the game had long since been won.

“I am so upset with him. He did not score three goals,” joked Guardiola of his star striker in the press conference after the game before more seriously adding: “He helped us again, he keeps the ball and fights. I think Erling played really good today.”

Joao Cancelo’s brilliant solo run had started the scoring midway through the first half and Phil Foden added a second soon after with City utterly dominant. The returning Rodri set up Riyad Mahrez to make it three early in the second half before Haaland’s strike.
While the victory moves Pep Guardiola’s unbeaten side back above Arsenal into top spot, a fourth consecutive defeat only adds to the pressure on beleaguered Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

LIVERPOOL BEATEN AT EMIRATES 3-2.
Liverpool was nailed 3-2 by Arsenal. Martinelli scored a stunning goal for the Gunners in the fifth minute. Later on, Saka scored another goal as well as a penalty making it three goals , three points for Arteta. Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp was disappointed so much with the results. In a post match press conference, Klopp said:

“Yes. Very disappointed. I think around all three goals we made decisive mistakes. The first goal was definitely too early and in our situation it was obviously not what you need to get a foot in the game. I understand it a little bit because it’s a situation where we pass the ball forward, lose it and have a chance to win it back, Diogo nearly blocks the ball and if he can block the ball then I think we go the other way. But he can’t block the ball, the first ball plays through our lines and there we have to interrupt the game – whoever I don’t know exactly, I have to look at it back – because the moment when Odegaard can [play] this pass, this pass is not to defend anymore, it’s just not possible.”

“1-0 down, really bad start but started controlling the game, played a really good game against a very aggressive, full-of-confidence Arsenal side. But we really showed that we are here for a reason. We scored the equaliser, a wonderful goal, great play and open game, could go either way I think with advantages for us, more possession, more finishes, these kind of things. Then we make a bad decision before half-time with the free-kick and that’s the situation where you ignore a free-kick – I’m completely guilty for that. That’s an excuse from my side, you can say I was surprised… ‘Yeah, what are we doing?’ But then the boys are convinced, ‘Let’s score a goal.’ But we didn’t, we conceded one on the other end. Like after the worst possible start, now we had the worst possible end to the first half.”

WOLVES DEFEATED 3-0 AT STAMFORD BRIDGE.
The Blues defeated Wolves 3-0 to extend their winning streak since Potter took over at Stamford Bridge in lieu of Thomas Tuchel. Earlier in the week, they also defeated AC Milan 3-0 in the Champions League. Chelsea is once again in the top four as they pursue the front-running trio of Tottenham, Manchester City, and Arsenal.

Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, praised Mason Mount for his “sacrifice” against Wolves and described Christian Pulisic’s new position within the squad. Diego Costa received a standing ovation when he arrived in west London for the first time since he left the Blues in 2018 to rejoin Atletico Madrid in a £54 million move. Mount started the season off in poor form.
