We’re only two weeks into the Premier League season and already it seems that the title race is well underway. Manchester City and Liverpool have been pipped as the two favourites to lift the trophy and both are stamping their claim on the title early on.
There was plenty to talk about after three days of Premier League action, so let’s take a look at some of the main talking points:
The Manchester Divide Widens
As the blue side of manchester goes from strength to strength, the red side is crumbling before our very eyes. Reigning champions City showed their class by brushing Huddersfield aside whilst Manchester United stuttered to a defeat at Brighton. Whilst City will look to improve on last year and take the next step in the Champions League, United are struggling to quash rumours of rifts between Mourinho and a number of his players as well as the board of Directors.
Kane Lifts His August Curse
With a goal being disallowed and one striking the woodwork against Fulham, it seemed destined that Kane’s famous August drought would continue. Alas, at the 15th time of asking, Kane managed to squeeze a low shot past keeper Fabri, finally lifting his monthly rut with 13 minutes remaining.
Karma seemed to be in full effect during Newcastle’s early kick off against Cardiff, as midfielder Kenedy finished off a miserable game in which he seemed to aim a kick at Victor Camarasa. The kick went un-noticed by the referee in a half where the Brazilian winger failed to complete a single pass. Things were to come to a conclusion in stoppage-time as his poor penalty, to win the game, was missed.
A Long Way Back For Arsenal
Arsenal fans had plenty to be positive about, even after their 3-2 loss to Chelsea. Unai Emery hasn’t had long with a club that have known only one manager for the past 22 years, and after losing their first two games, most have been asking whether we’re seeing the same old Arsenal. Although we are seeing some similar failings is Emery on the way to turning Arsenal around?
