The English Premier League returned to action on Saturday afternoon after the mid-week games, which saw Manchester City leapfrog Arsenal in the premier league table. The Cityzens was able to put David Moyes West Ham United to the sword, with Erling Haaland, Ake, and Phil Foden the star of the match. Arsenal on the other hand thrashed Chelsea, but that wasn't enough to move past Manchester City.
The weekend fixture kicked off with an Interesting game between Chelsea and Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. The Blues ventured into the game to bounce back from the Arsenal defeat. Chelsea hasn't won a single game since the appointment of Frank Lampard as the head coach, so the Bournemouth game was an opportunity for the Blues to record their first win under the English manager.
Callagher opened the scoring for the Blues just a few minutes into the game, but unfortunately, the Cherries equalized with a beautiful fail from Vinha. Lampard made an interesting substitution that changed the game. Benoit and How Felix scored two late goals to give the Blues a comfortable win. Manchester City on the other hand kept their cool against Leeds United.
Ikay Gundogan's brace was just enough for the Citizens to grab a crucial three points. Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace battled it out in London. Spurs were keen on returning to winning ways from the Liverpool defeat during the weekend. Although the game was a tough one, Tottenham Hotspur boosted their top-four hope with Harry Kane's first-half goal.
