Gameweek 7 of the premier league threw at us one of the biggest matches of the season till date. Chelsea
took on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Although the match ended in a draw, it was one of the finest matches
in recent memory. Both teams attacked superbly and it was a thrilling game. Apart from this, West Ham
beat Man Utd 3-1 at the London Stadium and Man City beat Brighton 2-0. So here is a look at the three
things we learned from PL gameweek 7:
1) Three Way Title Race
Last season, the PL title race was a dull affair. Man City ran away with it fairly early and there was not much
of a chance given to others. But this year, it looks like a three way battle. Liverpool and Chelsea have
started the season very well and look to be very close to City. If they can sustain this, we could have a
really close title race on our hands. Although Chelsea and Liverpool drew this weekend, their style of play
was sublime. City could well fall short this season if the current trend continues.
2) United Divided
Manchester United were sloppy as usual. Pellegrini’s West Ham managed to rip them apart by scoring
three goals. Even though United pulled one back via Rashford, they were never really in the game. The first
one was scored by Felipe Anderson who looked impressive in the game. While the second goal was an
own goal, Arnautovic scored a brilliant third to dump United into 10th place in the table. Things need to
change drastically for them to make the top 4 this season.
3) Sub-Par City
Manchester City were not at their best against Brighton. They did not dominate the match enough. And yet,
they managed to win the game 2-0. This shows how good they are individually. Aguero continued his
remarkable scoring record and led City to the three points, although it was not a very convincing
To sum up, this gameweek was one of the more exciting ones and it showed the unpredictable nature of
the league we all love. It also showed that this season’s title race will go down to the wire.
