2019-20 Premier League: Week Six Roundup

Liverpool continue their unbeaten start to the domestic season.

Liverpool maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season on a weekend which has been full of goals and surprises.

First-half goals from Trent Alexander Arnold and Roberto Firmino were enough to see off Chelsea, who earned a second-half consolation through N’Golo Kante as Liverpool continue to sit atop of the League summit.

Manchester City meanwhile recorded their biggest Premier League win as they ran riot in a eight goal thrashing of Watford.

David Silva opened the scoring after just 52 seconds before Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi all struck to make it 5-0 after just 18 minutes. 

Bernardo Silva then secured a hat-trick after picking up a second-half brace before Kevin De Bruyne completed the thrashing with a 85th minute strike from just inside the box to keep the Citizens within five points of Liverpool.

Leicester reclaimed third after Ricardo Pereira and James Maddison overturned a first-half wonder goal from a tumbling Harry Kane to take a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur, despite both teams having a goal ruled out by VAR for offside.

Arsenal complete the top four after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s winner from a 84th minute free-kick proved the difference, as the Gunners twice came from behind and an Ainsley Maitland-Niles red card to clinch a 3-2 victory and Aston Villa slid back into the relegation zone.

West Ham climbed to fifth after comfortably dispatching Manchester United through two excellent strikes from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell, as United’s injury crisis deepened after Marcus Rashford suffered a groin injury. 

Bournemouth improved to sixth after taking their first ever away win at Southampton with a 3-1 victory, which started with first-half goals from Nathan Ake and Harry Wilson before James Ward-Prowse reduced the Saints’ deficit with a 53rd minute penalty.

Callum Wilson then wrapped up the Cherries’ victory when a goal-kick caused a defensive mixup between Angus Gunn and Jan Bednarek, allowing Wilson to punch and slot into an empty net.

Elsewhere, Wolves remain second bottom after Diogo Jota rescued them a late point at Crystal Palace, having initially gone behind early in the second-half to an Leander Dendoncker own goal. 

Chris Wood’s early brace helped Burnley see off a spirited challenge from Norwich, as Sean Dyche officially became the Clarets’ fourth longest serving manager in his 313th game. 

Sheffield United inflicted a second consecutive defeat on Everton through a Yerry Mina headed own goal, before Lys Mousset slotted in from a 79th minute counter attack as the Blades climbed to tenth. 

Finally, Newcastle held Brighton to a scrappy goalless draw as both teams sit just outside the relegation zone.
