The Premier League match day seven came to an end with Liverpool's 2-2 draw with the defending champions Manchester City on Sunday evening. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were on target for Liverpool while Phil Foden and Kevin Debruyne found the back of the net for the visitors. Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp could not celebrate a victory from a blockbuster encounter that ended with points shared.
2 things I observed from the Premier League match day 7 results.
1. Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton at Old Trafford in the first Premier League fixtures on Saturday. The Red Devils were stunned when Anthony Martial goal was cancelled by Townsend's goal in the second half. Arsenal in the evening were also held to 0-0 draw at Brighton in the last match of the Saturday fixtures. The first and last match of the Saturday fixtures ended as a draw.
On Sunday also, Leicester City were held to a 2-2 draw after leading by 2-0 before the break. Kelechi Iheanacho and Verdy's goals were Cancelled by Olise and Schlupp goals and the game ended as a draw. The last match of Sunday fixtures ended in a draw after Liverpool and Manchester City shared the points at Anfield. In both Saturday and Sunday fixtures, the first and last match of the day ended as a draw.
2. The second thing that appears to be special is Chelsea's 3-1 victory over Southampton at Stanford Bridge. Chelsea who lost their previous Premier League match to Manchester City were able to return to winning ways with a massive victory over the Saints. Out of all the top 4 teams on the Log, Chelsea were the only team to have recorded a win in this week's Premier League results. The Blues now sits on the top of the table with 16 points, 1 point ahead of Liverpool and 2 points ahead of Manchester City and Manchester United.
