Arsenal Premier League recap


Manchester City thrashed Stoke 7-2 for the biggest win of the English Premier League season as the goals dried up for title rival Manchester United in another tiresome stalemate with Liverpool on Saturday. Tottenham had struggled badly at the English national stadium in recent years and their temporary move there while White Hart Lane is being rebuilt was turning in a nightmare after they failed to win their first three league games there. "One thing is an entertaining game for fans, another thing is an entertaining game for people who read football in a different way".

If City were brutally clinical, Arsenal were anything but to squander a lead and ultimately leave Watford with nothing. I'll have to watch what I say.

The biggest and most frightening performance of the weekend came from Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's team have caught the eye this season with some devastating attacking football, which reached a new high on Saturday in a 7-2 demolition of Stoke.

In a week where the Premier League returned from the global break, we were treated to an avalanche of goals, upsets and controversy.

Palace's first goals and points of the season weren't enough to lift them from the bottom, but they are now just one point shy of Bournemouth in 19th.

Arsenal will play Crvena Zvezda in the Europa League next, before facing Everton in the Premier League and two relatively easy games at home against Norwich City and Swansea City to close the month. At the moment he's enjoying proving his critics wrong. After that, they'll welcome Watford to the Bridge for their next Premier League encounter.

Burnley's draw sees them level on points with Chelsea.

There was finally something to celebrate for Crystal Palace, which upset Chelsea 2-1 to register its first points and goals of the season. Pressure continues to mount on Ronald Koeman despite the point earned, with the Toffees massively underachieving this campaign.

Arsene Wenger must find a way to help his side regroup and quickly, or else they will find themselves even further off the lead.
