The four top-ranked teams in the Premier League each won their weekend showdown. Thus, the top ranking has not changed one iota.
Arsenal, who disposed of Nottingham Forest, are still first with 31 points, trailing second-placed Manchester City by two points, who, even in the absence of their Norwegian phenomenon Erling Haaland in attack, overcame Leicester at the outside, thanks to a gem in his midfield, the indefatigable Belgian savior, Kevin De Bruyne.
The third team on the podium, in this case, the « Spurs » of Tottenham, who now have 26 points in their counter, left to win away also against Bournemouth, after being led by two goals at zero in the first half. They managed to reduce the score and then equalize before scoring the winning goal in added time, to glean the three points of the match and a precious victory with it.
Newcastle, the fourth club in the top tier, which beat Tottenham last week, continues to shine by winning its sixth win of the season and in the best possible way after beating Aston Villa by four goals to nil.

– The box of Arsenal

The London club Arsenal continues to impose its tempo in this English championship by winning one more victory which allows it to consolidate its position as leader of the competition.
By winning at home, on the lawn of the « Emirate Stadium », by the result of 5 goals to 0, the highest score they have achieved so far, the foals of the Spanish technician Mikel Arteta, who have 31 points to their credit, show off their mastery and cohesion.

– The humiliation of the « Blues »

Indeed, and unlike Arsenal, comfortably installed in the leader’s chair, Chelsea currently find themselves sixth in the general classification but above all find themselves humiliated by suffering a severe defeat against Brighton, eleventh in the competition before this day, on the score of four goals to one.
Victorious in the European Football Champions League in 2021, the Chelsea club has since experienced a checkered evolution, impacted above all by the changes made to the head of the club after the departure of its owner, the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, collateral damage from the war in Ukraine.
Having lost three times since the start of the season, the heaviest defeat suffered by Chelsea was this Saturday against Brighton by 4 goals to one.

And even the reaction at the very beginning of the second half, through the German striker of the « Blues », Kai Havertz, who reduced the score in the 48th minute, was more a decoy than a glimmer of hope. hope, given the inability of his teammates to raise their heads, since neither the legs and even less the mind followed to climb the slope.
Worse still, during added time, the player of the opposing club Pascal Grob drove the point home by scoring a fourth goal, which sealed the score of this humiliation for the London club.

– The « Reds » fall again

Eighth in the standings and fifteen lengths behind leaders Arsenal, the Liverpool club is having one of its worst starts to the season in recent years.
The proteges of the German coach, Jurgen Klopp, have, in fact, won four victories, shared the score of parity four times and conceded as many defeats.
