Premier League round-up after October 25 games

Premier League Round-up: Liverpool and Chelsea win big in record-breaking weekend

October 25, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
It was a weekend to remember for Reds and Blues, but there was more to keep an eye on during the past weekend in the English top-flight.

The past weekend in the top football category in England gave fans quite a few thrills, especially with those teams leading the pack earning big wins. The talk of the weekend had to do with Liverpool's display against Manchester United, which saw the Reds dismantle the Red Devils' defense while also putting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job in jeopardy.

Earlier in the weekend, Chelsea also claimed a big win against Norwich City, showing those in the league that they will be very much in the title race for the long run. The other big story of the weekend had Watford as its protagonists, as Claudio Ranieri's team claimed their first win under their new boss with an emphatic 5-2 away victory against Everton, bouncing back from a 5-0 loss to Liverpool on Matchday eight.

Without further ado, here are the main talking points after Matchday 9 in the Premier League.

Who are the top five Premier League teams after Matchday 9?

The three top spots in the league remained the same, as Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City won their respective games this weekend. The major change among the top five came thanks to West Ham, who are now fourth following their one-nil win against Tottenham earlier this Sunday. The fifth place belongs to Brighton, who were on the losing end of their game against Manchester City and lost their second match of the campaign.

Premier League top 3 scorers

Mo Salah's stellar performance against Manchester United saw the Egyptian ace reach ten goals to his name, creating a gap between himself and Jamie Vardy, who is second with seven goals. Michail Antonio is now third with six goals after his game-winning goal against Spurs, which ended a three-game streak without a goal for the Jamaican international.

Premier League – Top headlines

  • Salah grabs several records in Man United thrashing - The Egyptian star has now scored more goals in the Premier League than any other African player (106). Moreover, he also became the first player to score a hat-trick at Old Trafford while playing for an away team since Ronaldo Nazario did so in a UEFA Champions League game 18 years ago.

  • Mason Mount joins elite list of hat-trick goalscorers for Chelsea - The Blues enjoyed a walk in the park against Norwich, which was led by Mason Mount's scintillating performance. The 22-year-old scored a hat-trick and handed out an assist during the game, which saw him become the 21st player in Blues' history to score three goals in a single game.

  • Manchester United set unwanted record after just 45 minutes vs Liverpool - The game between the Red Devils and Liverpool will go down in history for all the wrong reasons for Solskjaer's men. Keeping the result, Pogba's red card, and Ronaldo's goal being disallowed away from all controversy, the game will also be remembered due to the fact that this was the first Premier League game in which Manchester United were down by four goals before the halftime break. Without a doubt, that will forever be a huge dent on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's resume.

Top matches to watch in the Premier League on October 30-Nov.1, 2021

Liverpool vs Brighton: The Reds will host this year's Premier League sensation at Anfield following two five-goal displays. Brighton were unable to beat Manchester City last time out, which will see Graham Potter's men being a bit more cautious during this match. The game could also be a historic moment for Mohamed Salah if he can carry on with his goalscoring streak, which has extended to 10 games across all comps.

Newcastle vs Chelsea: The European champions make a trip to St. James' Park trying to keep the top spot to themselves while also maintaining their impressive defensive record. On the other hand, Newcastle will keep searching for their first win of the season, especially because getting in relegation problems so early in the season may not be a good business investment for the wealthiest team in the world.

Tottenham vs Manchester United: The Red Devils have lost three of their last four Premier League games, which has seen them slip to seventh place in the English top-flight. Solskjaer's team will face Tottenham, who are ranked sixth, and who have also had some shaky outings in the recent past. While neither one of these teams will get to this game in their best shape, a win here for either of them could be a turning point in what has been a subpar season for two clubs that were considered title contenders when the league began.
