2019-20 Premier League: Week Four Roundup

Liverpool continue to lead the way at the top of the Premier League as teams now head off on the September international break. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring against Burnley with an excellent cross which deflected in off Chris Wood after just 33 minutes. 

Roberto Firmino then set up Sadio Mane to fire into the bottom right just four minutes later, before turning scorer in the 80th minute when he smashed in Salah’s ball to complete a 3-0 victory and make it 12 points from their opening four games. 

Manchester City are just two points behind after a Sergio Aguero brace in between goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva completed a four goal thrashing of Brighton.

Leicester sit third after beating Bournemouth 3-1 whilst Crystal Palace round out the top four, having fought their way to a narrow win over Aston Villa through Jordan Ayew’s 73rd minute bender into the bottom right from close range. 

Arsenal drop to fifth after coming from behind to settle for a 2-2 draw with North London rivals, Tottenham as Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck to cancel out Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane’s goals from Spurs. 

Everton climbed to sixth as they twice fought off a Wolves fightback before Richardson headed in Lucas Digne’s cross to secure a 3-2 victory, although Wolves did have Willy Boly sent off in injury time for a second yellow card.

Elsewhere, Frank Lampard is still looking for his first home win after Chelsea blew Tammy Abraham’s first-half brace to take a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United, as Callum Robinson halved the deficit in the opening minute of the second half before setting up the cross which Kurt Zouma unluckily poked into his own net ahead of Lys Mousset. 

Southampton and Newcastle came from behind to snatch home draws against Manchester United and rock-bottom Watford respectively. 

Finally, Teemu Pukki’s three league match scoring run was ended as Norwich fell to a 2-0 defeat at West Ham, dropping them to second-bottom only behind Villa on goal difference.
