Following the end of the Premier League's third round, the English Premier League, as well as the top European leagues, will take a two-week break to prepare for the period of focusing on the national team. However, this is clearly a cliffhanger...
Two great battles of the group of giants were witnessed in Round 3 of the English Premier League. Man City, the reigning champion, faced Arsenal at the Etihad, while Chelsea had to rally to the stadium of Liverpool- former king's. In addition, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur had a difficult round.
Arsenal was beaten by Man City (blue shirt)
Man City quickly demonstrated that their loss to Tottenham in the first match was completely an accident. Coach Pep Guardiola's team proceeded to crush Arsenal with the same score after defeating Norwich 5-0 in the second round. It's possible that coach Mikel Arteta will resign as a result of Arsenal's worst start in history.
Man City is the third club in Premier League history to score 10 or more goals in the first two games of the season at home, following Arsenal in 2010/11 (10 goals) and Manchester United in 2011/12 (11 goals). Meanwhile, Arsenal is only the second team in Premier League history to lose their first three games and have a -9 goal difference. Wolverhampton Wanderers had the previous worst record in the 2003/04 season. Wolves were relegated to the bottom of the table that season!
Liverpool and Chelsea battled it out at Anfield in a tense and exciting match. Chelsea scored first, but Liverpool benefited greatly from a red card and penalty in the first half of injury time. Though the "Red Brigade" played better in the second half, they were unable to defeat the defending Champions League champion.
In this epic battle, there are still staggering numbers. Only Matt Le Tissier (23 consecutive goals between 1994 and 2000) has scored more goals in the Premier League than Mohamed Salah.
Edouard Mendy, the goalkeeper, was extremely important in this game. On all fronts, Mendy made the most saves in a Chelsea shirt in the 6 saves he made against Liverpool. The fulcrum of "The Blues" is still the Senegalese star, who retains great stability.
MU will have to wait for Ronaldo's comeback.
With 7 points after the third round of the Premier League, MU is now in third place. However, the "Red Devils'" 1-0 victory over Wolves revealed far too many issues. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team played poorly, and their victory was largely attributable to luck.
MU (blue and white shirt) had a difficult time defeating Wolves away from home.
It's worth noting that this match featured both of their important rookies, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. Varane's performance was adequate; he received a 7.4 rating from Whoscored for one assist on Greenwood's goal in the 80th minute. Sancho, on the other hand, had a poor 72 minutes, only receiving points. Whoscored gave him a 5.7, the lowest of the 14 MU players.
According to the Manchester Evening News, MU must wait for a player capable of energizing teammates, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, to show up. This 36-year-old superstar promises to assist coach Solskjaer in a variety of ways, both professionally and in the development of his juniors.
Tottenham is currently in first place after the third round, and they are also the only team to have won all three games, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Watford at home. Nuno Santo continues to enjoy his "honeymoon" with the North London team. After a series of national team matches, however, no one knows if Tottenham can keep up their impressive performance.
