Futydose: Three Things We Learned From PL Gameweek 7


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

performance.

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.
