EPL: Checkout 5 Major Highlights From All The Games Played Today

The Match week 5 of the English Premier League produced lots of dramas, tension and frenzy moments to wrap up an exciting Saturday for the football fans.

A recap of the activities that took place in those games include;

1. Ivan Toney Prowess [ Wolves 0:2 Brentford ]

The robust Ivan Toney was too much for the Wolverhampton players to handle as he was often seen charging unto the defenders and creating havoc in the final third.

His prowess couldn't be contained as he was bundled over by the Wolverhampton defender in the penalty area to gift the Bee's a penalty. He buried it calmly and later on provided an assist for a fellow teammate.

2. VAR RULING [ Man City 0:0 Southampton ]

Manchester City was unlucky to have come under VAR's judgement on two occasions of which one of them was in their favour.

In the 61st minute of the game, Kyle Walker was misjudged to have bundled over Armstrong in a goal-bound situation and therefore shown a red card and a penalty awarded by the referee; John Moss.

However, both decisions were overturned by the VAR after it was observed that the attacker had dived as there was no contact at all. Raheem Sterling's late minute goal was also ruled out by VAR for an offside.

3. Mané 100th Premier League Goal [ Liv 3:0 CRY ]

Sadio Mané scored his 100th Premier League goal in the 43rd minute of the game as a tap in a rebound from Vincent Guaita. The goal was the ninth consecutive time he has scored against them. He was all joyous after scoring with the supporters cheering him from the stands.

4. Martin Ødegaard Superb Free-kick [ BUR 0:1 ARS]

Martin Ødegaard fired in a superb free-kick into the left corner of the post to give Arsenal all the three points needed to come out of relegation. Ødegaard was undoubtedly the brightest talent on the pitch and on numerous occasions, he was seen drifting with the ball to create chances for his teammates.

5. Digne Sets an Unwanted Record [ A.Villa 3:0 EVE]

Everton lost on the night to Aston Villa having held on to a draw until the 66th minutes when Cash gave the home team the lead before Digné headed a cross into his net to condemn Rafa Benitez to his first loss of the season.

Digné own goal made him the only player to have scored three own goals since he completed his move to Everton in the 2018/2019 season.
