PL Weekend: Man City humiliated Liverpool; Man United stopped at Stoke

Manchester City vs Liverpool 

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola handed Jurgen Klopp his biggest Premier League defeat while beating 10-man Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool had a dangerous start to the game, but on 24 minutes, Sergio Aguero received Kevin De Bruyne’s through-ball and beat Simon Mignolet to score.

Klopp’s task got even harder when Sadio Mane was sent off for serious foul play after dangerously kicking Ederson in the face when chasing a through-ball on 37 minutes.

Then, in the sixth minute of first-half stoppage time, an unmarked Gabriel Jesus headed in De Bruyne’s cross to make it 2-0.

Jesus made it 3-0 on 53 minutes when Sergio Aguero, through on goal, squared for the Brazilian to finish.

Leroy Sane came on to add gloss to the scoreline, firstly converting a neat one-two with Benjamin Mendy and then curling home a stunning goal in stoppage time.

Arsenal vs AFC Bournemouth

Arsenal are finally back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

After two defeats in a row, Arsenal got off to a magnificent start when Danny Welbeck scored from Sead Kolasinac’s cross after only six minutes.

Welbeck was involved in the second as well, setting up Alexandre Lacazette to curl in a perfect shot in  the 27th minute.

Soon after Jermain Defoe hit a post with a header, Arsenal got their third after the break.

Aaron Ramsey set free Welbeck on the left and he finished into the far corner.

Arsenal played the last 10 minutes with 10 men after Francis Coquelin, one of three substitutes, went off injured, but apart from Petr Cech tipping over a Lys Mousset header, AFC Bournemouth rarely threatened to score a second goal this season.

Leicester City vs Chelsea

N’Golo Kante’s goal against his previous club helped Chelsea edge past Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

The Chelsea midfielder scored the winner on 50 minutes, firing a low effort from distance past the goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The undisputed champions took the lead on 41 minutes when Alvaro Morata netted his third of the season with his head, from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross.

But soon after Kante’s goal, the 2015/16 champions Leicester City pulled one back from the penalty spot.

Jamie Vardy scored his spot-kick after being brought down by Thibaut Courtois, but Chelsea held on to rise to third in the table.

Stoke City vs Manchester United

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored twice as Stoke City ended Manchester United‘s 100% victorious start to the season thereby converting it to an undefeated one.

The summer signing for Stoke broke the deadlock on 43 minutes at the bet365 Stadium, converting Mame Biram Diouf’s cross for the first goal United had conceded in 2017/18.

But Marcus Rashford immediately equalised, deflecting in Paul Pogba’s header thereby relieving the pressure.

After the break, Romelu Lukaku made it 2-1 with his fourth goal of the campaign, following up after Jack Butland had deflected back his first shot.

It was Stoke’s turn to reply. Moments after David De Gea’s heroics had denied Jese, Choupo-Moting headed in Xherdan Shaqiri’s cross.

Butland’s stoppage-time save from Kurt Zouma’s header kept United to a point that put them back top on goal difference. Stoke climb to 10th.
