Stars points in EPL thrillers
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer headed for Goodison Park knowing that each of the three managers who preceded him as Old Trafford boss had been fired after losing on Merseyside, but he was saved by a trusted savior.
Bruno Fernandes scored two goals and finished third in a hard-fought 3-1 win at Goodison. This was another masterful achievement. Former Red Devil Phil Neville was the last to compare the Portuguese to club legend Eric Cantona.
His impact on the club since arriving in January has been enormous, especially outside of his home country, where he was directly involved in 13 goals (nine goals, four assists) in his first 10 games.
You’d shudder to think about where United would have ended last season, where they would be this season, and if Solskjaer would even have a job without him, but the manager admitted he was often dumped by his star -Man stays frustrated.
“Of course there is desire and determination to lead the boys. It’s all over the place! “Solskjaer said after the win.
“Sometimes that frustrates me because sometimes passes are played where it should have been and it’s not there. But you know when you have someone to push them like that, you are obviously very happy. ”
ARSENAL IM SPIN
You’d flinch at the reactionary hot takes if Solskjaer was responsible for a team that did as badly as Arsenal in the 3-0 drubbing of Aston Villa.
Arsenal were great in the Old Trafford win seven days earlier, but they looked very different when Villa tore them from branch to branch and certainly should have won with more.
The Gunners fought consistently and looked even worse after new signing Thomas Partey left the pitch injured at halftime as they scrambled to take clear opportunities to get their former goalkeeper Emi Martinez into trouble.
Mikel Arteta took full responsibility for the defeat but, if anything, it was proof of how much more work there is to be done for the Spaniard before he can even think of fighting for the title again.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has continued poor form since signing his new deal and hasn’t had a single shot while Nicolas Pepe once again proved why those who approved his £ 72m move have now left the club.
Villa Sink Sad Gunners
PREMIER LEAGUE’S NEXT £ 100M PLAYER
While Manchester United tried all season to bring the price down on Jadon Sancho, another talented young Englishman stood up and decided to sign a new deal with his club instead.
Jack Grealish was phenomenal again against Arsenal as he pulled and pushed the defense at will while his dribbling continued to bamboozoate anyone who dared walk up to him.
United got interested in him, but Villa’s £ 80million price tag was too high when they were so confident of getting Sancho.
Arguably the best player of the season, he made his England debut and signed a new long-term contract with Villa, which means his value has only increased when one of the biggest clubs wants to attack him.
He is sure to cost around £ 100m now, given his added England international bonus, and there will be more candidates for his signature than last year. But now just enjoy watching him dance around for Villa because it’s a pleasure to see him right now.
Red and city share booty
HANDBÄLLE IRK REDS
One of the most controversial issues over the weekend were the two penalties the VAR imposed on handballs.
The Wolves conceded a goal against Leicester when the ball struck Max Kilman’s arm in the penalty area before Joe Gomez suffered the same fate for Liverpool through Kevin De Bruyne’s cross.
In both cases, the offending player was hit by a flank from close range so that the arm could not be moved in time.
Arguments that the arm is in an unnatural position – that is, away from the body – become null and void unless the player is in a static position. It is impossible to run at the pace with your arms by your side or behind your back.
“To be fair to the referees, the game before [Leicester vs Wolves] They agreed, ”said Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
“You go to the letter of the law. It’s tough for players, I think for defenders who run back because of the pace of that Kevin De Bruyne cross, he’s having a hard time getting out of the way. Everyone finds it difficult to know where to put their arms, hopefully the referees can see it and it shouldn’t be given in both games. ”
The cut-and-dry rule “This is a handball if it hits here and not if it hits here” may be easier to implement as it is not interpreted. However, whether or not it is fair is another question.
Jesus’ chic target against the reds
Spurs look like masters
Whisper it but is Tottenham starting to look like they could win the Premier League this season?
We’ve spoken of Grealish’s excellence this season, but only Heung-min Son and Harry Kane have been directly involved in more goals than him this season, at 10 and 15 respectively and the way they play you wouldn’t expect to stop soon.
With Gareth Bale not yet up to date and with Carlos Vinicius impressing from the bench, Jose Mourinho has plenty of options in the event one of Kane and Son gets injured while always enjoying cementing a defense.
Tanguy Ndombele has become a new player from his last season in midfield and while Spurs has shown that they can pump some teams for big scores, they can win ugly too, as they did against West Brom this weekend.
If there’s anyone who can end Spurs’ trophy drought it’s Mourinho, and don’t be surprised if Liverpool and Manchester City start with the Premier League title.
