Before we get to the round up let’s take a look at Augusts’ player of the month contenders. It’s neck to neck between these 7.
And here’s the contender for Goal of the month August – Psst. Our money’s on Mane!
Alright, so Manchester United is at the top. Surprise surprise?
And it looks as though the other big guns are going to have some catching up to do. Just speculating! It’s football, it’s allowed.
Moving on within Manchester, Gameweek 3 started with Raheem Sterling scoring in the 97th minute of a game that was to have actually had 95 minutes of play (including extra time) for Manchester City to snatch the 3 points from Bournemouth. Oh, he got red Carded 2 minutes later for over enthusiastic celebrations by the way! Oh, Sterling!
Swansea took a 2-0 lead over Crystal Palace and Renato Sanchez wasn’t even signed yet. He is now though and his stint can’t be any shot of a cracker of a time given that many big guns failed to sign him.
New entrant Huddersfield Town failed to win their 3rd game in a row. Phew! We were starting to get worried!
Michael Owen’s one time Newcastle United seemed to play as if a chip of the old block was shadowing over them. Classic stuff in the 3-0 victory over the Hammers!
Manchester United, what can we say? Rashford walks in at 67’ and scores at 70’. 3 minutes in! Why would you bench him, Mourinho? But then again Fellaini walked in at 74’ and scored 8 minutes later. Hmm, we see what you’re doing there Mourinho!
The champions Chelsea steered clear into a 2-0 victory over Rooney and the boys from Merseyside. Spanishsupremacy reigned in with Fabregas and Morata scoring, giving the blues the 3 points. They moved up to 6thposition from the bottom half from last week.
The game of the week that WAS MOST SPOKEN ABOUT was the 4-0 obliteration of the gunners by Liverpool. There’s always a sense of excitement going around when you have a Jürgen Klopp on the sidelines. His celebrations after each goal were ‘epic’ so to say. Arsenal’s defending on the other hand…
Wenger’s got his job cut out for him. HE SURE HAS!
There’s a lot that’s been going on with the culmination of the transfer window. Sanchez was to be on his way out. Chamberlain too… Wenger too? We think the fans and the board will take care of him.
Now here’s what the table looks like:
If United lose their first game and Liverpool don’t, Liverpool could be at t he top. BUT that’s not happening now, is it?
