EPL Saturday: Man United Drop Points, Arsenal Win Big As Man City Hammer Liverpool

Man United drop first points of the season in tough battle at Stoke, as City thrashed past 10-man Liverpool and Arsenal eased to victory over Bournemouth to get their English Premier League campaign back on track.
Here's the roundup of today's English Premier League games:

 Stoke City 2-2 Man United

Stoke City and Manchester United drew 2-2 in an entertaining clash at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

The Potters took the lead through Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting but United came roaring back with Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku scoring either side of half time to put them 2-1 up.

However, Choupo-Moting nodded home to level things up once again and Stoke held on for a point against the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho’s United remain top of the Premier League table and are unbeaten, but they only sit above Man City on goal difference.

As for Stoke, they now have five points from their opening four games.

Arsenal 3-0 Bournemouth

Danny Welbeck scored in both half and Alexandre Lacazette buried a bullet as Arsenal responded to its critics with a dominant 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

Welbeck also assisted Lacazette’s goal, rewarding Arsene Wenger for another start. The Gunners rise ninth with six points, while Bournemouth remains one of three winless teams before West Ham and Crystal Palace play their fourth matches of the young season.

Man City 5-0 Liverpool

Gabriel Jesus scored twice as Manchester City poured past 10-man Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Sergio Aguero had a goal and an assist, Kevin De Bruyne had two assists, and Benjamin Mendy cued up Sane for City’s 77th minute goal before Sane added a second.

City goes first for the moment with 10 points, while Liverpool remains on seven and sinks fifth on goal differential.

For City boss Pep Guardiola, it’s a first win over Jurgen Klopp.

Sadio Mane was sent off for a 37th minute challenge on charging City goalkeeper Ederson, as the winger’s attempt to beat the keeper to a loose ball saw the keeper kicked in the face.

Everton 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Kane bagged a brace and Christian Eriksen also scored as Tottenham Hotspur cruised past Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park.

Spurs move fifth on seven points with the win, while Everton is 15th with four points as its murderer’s row of opponents stretches into September.

Leicester City 1-2 Chelsea

Alvaro Morata and N'Golo Kante staked Chelsea to a two-goal lead, and the Blues held on tight for a 2-1 win over Leicester City at King Power Stadium.

Chelsea goes third with the win, nabbing nine points since an Opening Day loss to Burnley.

Jamie Vardy won and scored a penalty kick for Leicester, which sits 17th with three points.

Brighton 3-1 West Brom

Brighton & Hove Albion won for the first time in Premier League history as they beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at The Amex.

Pascal Gross struck either side of half time for Brighton’s first PL goals, then Tomer Hemed put them 3-0 up as Chris Hughton‘s side won at the fourth-attempt despite James Morrison‘s consolation.

Southampton 0-2 Watford

Watford continued their fine start to the season with a 2-0 win away at Southampton.

Long-distance strikes in each half from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat did the damage with Saints yet again putting in another lackluster attacking display with no goals scored in three of their first four EPL games of the season.

Southampton tasted defeat in the EPL for the first time under Mauricio Pellegrino, while Marco Silva remains unbeaten in the league as Watford boss with two wins and two draws from four games with two away wins on the spin on the South Coast.
