Manchester City sent the gunner Haaland into the lead in the 50th minute. The Norwegian forward has made his mark in the fourth game in a row and is leading the scorers. He scored ten goals in six matches. But the reigning champions did not keep the lead, Bailey took care of the equalizer in the 74th minute and prepared the Manchester team for the second loss of the year. Aston Villa, on the other hand, scored points after three defeats in a row.
Manchester City’s hesitance has paid off for leaders Arsenal, who take on Manchester United on Sunday. If the Gunners win for the sixth time this season, they will lead the table by four points.
Tottenham led Höjbjerg and Kane to their fourth win of the season, Mitrovic scored for the visitors in the end. The London team scored their 100th jubilee victory in the London derby. West Ham, for whom the Czech representatives Coufal and Souček played the entire match, led over Chelsea thanks to Antonio’s goal in the 63rd minute. Chilwell equalized and Havertz turned the score around two minutes from time.
The guests were able to equalize immediately, but the referee did not recognize the goal after consulting the video. Cornet’s intervention was preceded by a foul by Bowen on Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy. However, West Ham coach David Moyes strictly refused such a thing. “It was a scandalous decision. And it’s even worse when one of the so-called elite referees makes it,” the coach told the BBC.
“I support the video, but here the goalkeeper simulated and faked an injury because he didn’t have time to come back. He tried the same for the first goal. It’s unbelievable that the referee doesn’t see it,” said Moyes.
Liverpool are still waiting for their first away win after a 0-0 draw. Although the guests were more active, the home side Everton was closer to a goal, but the goal of Liverpool student Coady in the 69th minute was disallowed due to offside.
Seven goals were seen by the spectators in Brentford, where the home team won 5:2 over Leeds. Toney contributed three goals, the guests played the last half hour at ten after Marsch was sent off.
