Premier League:  Liverpool Edge Out Chelsea,  Arsenal Survive Villa Scare

Liverpool recorded their sixth successive win in the Premier League courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in Sunday’s encounter at Stamford Bridge.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino netted either side of a disallowed Cesar Azpilicueta goal to hand the league leaders a two-goal advantage at the break.

However, Liverpool team were pushed all the way by Chelsea as N’Golo Kante sublime individual effort game the Blues hope during the closing stages of the contest.

At the Emirates Stadium, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dramatic winner helped 10-man Arsenal complete a stunning late comeback to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners suffered an early setback when John McGinn gave Villa the lead in the 20th minute and things went from bad to worse for the hosts when Ainsley Maitland-Niles received his marching orders for a second bookable offence just before the break.

Nicolas Pepe’s first goal for the club gave Arsenal a lifeline in the 59th minute, but Villa regained the lead 89 seconds later through Wesley and looked on course for a famous victory.

But their resistance was finally broken in the final 10 minutes as goals from substitute Calum Chambers (81) and Aubameyang (84) secured Unai Emery’s side a vital three points to move them up to fourth in the table.

Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell ensured West Ham recorded a convincing 2-0 victory over an injury-hit Manchester United.

The Hammers went after the visitors from the off and were rewarded with a deserved lead as Yarmolenko struck a half-volley past a diving David de Gea on the stroke of half-time after some fine one-touch football.

While United started the second half brightly, an injury to Marcus Rashford stunted hopes of a comeback that were put fully to rest when Cresswell scored a wonderful free-kick five minutes from time.

Diogo Jota scored in the fifth minute of injury-time to give 10-man Wolves a dramatic 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.

After failing to muster a decent effort on goal before the break, Palace took the lead in the first minute of the second half when Joel Ward’s strike from the edge of the box was deflected past Rui Patricio off Leander Dendoncker for an own goal.

    Unless he is not interested, I think all hands should be on deck to get BUKAYO SAKA into the Super Eagles squad. Not because we don’t have good players playing in his position. But because if we can get him, it will increase our options, and give us a very strong bench. At just 18, Saka would be a dream acquisition for us. Creates chances, scores goals, defends well, passes well. Shoots well from distance with both feet (something we need very much right now). Very mature and composed for his age. Unai Emery benched Ozil for him today. That should tell us something. I would love for Saka to have his Nigeria debut against Brazil on October 13.
