Premier League MD3 Round-up

Premier League MD3 Round-up: Liverpool held by 10-man Chelsea, Man City humiliate Arsenal, Greenwood fires Man Utd to new record

August 31, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Premier League produced more excitement over the weekend with the international break presenting clubs the opportunity to regroup and plan for the subsequent fixtures.

It was yet another great weekend of Premier League football with a few results and performances standing out across the league centers. For the first time in 67 years, Arsenal dropped down to the bottom of the table after three matches in the English top-flight league. The Gunners had endured the misery of losing to Brentford and Chelsea but had their hope restored momentarily after beating West Brom 6-0 in the EFL Cup last week. However, their clash with Manchester City this weekend condemned them to a new low with Mikel Arteta's men suffering a 5-0 thrashing at Etihad Stadium. The Citizens have now won their last two league games with a five-goal margin having subjected Norwich to the same scoreline in their previous clash.

Meanwhile, Liverpool failed to breakdown Chelsea's robust defense despite the Blues end the clash with 10-men after Reeece James' hand-ball incident. Manchester United United kept it late to snatch a controversial win over Wolves whereas Tottenham Hotspur added to their fine form to secure the top spot ahead of the international break.

Who are the top five Premier League teams after Matchday 3?
