Premier League Gameweek 12: Overview

- Advertisement -

The Premier League returned after what seemed like a forever long and boring international break. The weekend featured Gameweek 12 of the season. The anticipation of the viewers was rightfully treated, with the Premier League Gameweek 12 featuring a total of 36 goals. Let’s have look at how the fixtures of the week concluded-

Premier League Gameweek 12: Round 1

LEICESTER CITY 0-3 CHELSEA:

The Premier League Gameweek 12 opened with Leicester taking on Chelsea at the King Power Stadium. A rather expected performance from the Blues was enough to send the Foxes back to the forest. An opening header by Antonio Rudiger, followed by a banger from N’Golo Kante was enough to shatter the hosts’ hopes. While Christian Pulisic sealed the game with a goal in the 70th min. The foxes were lucky to concede just 3, as many of the Chelsea goals were ruled offside.

ASTON VILLA 2-0 BRIGHTON:

An almost 50-50 game, the day seemed to be on Aston Villa‘s side. Villa were looking for a win under new manager Steven Gerrard for a positive comeback. The game had late goals from striker Ollie Watkins and team skipper Tyrone Mings.

BURNLEY 3-3 CRYSTAL PALACE:

The roller coaster fixture of the week, with Crystal Palace seeming to be the better team. Burnley were lucky to steal a point. A brace from Palace striker Christian Benteke and defender Marc Guehi were matched with goals from Ben Mee, Chris Wood, and Maxwell Cornet.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 3-3 BRENTFORD:

Newcastle United‘s first game under new manager Eddie Howe ended with a simple draw at the St. James’ Park. An early header from Jamaal Lascelles put the Magpies in lead, which was soon canceled out by a superb strike from Brentford’s Ivan Toney. Two goals later from each side concluded the game, with Newcastle still without a win in this campaign.

NORWICH 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON:

Norwich clenched a lucky win under new manager Dean Smith who was looking for redemption after the sacking from Aston Villa. A very early goal from Southampton’s Che Adams was countered by a Teemu Pukki penalty, followed by a Grant Hanley header. Being the better team, Southampton were unlucky to secure any points.

WATFORD 4-1 MANCHESTER UNITED:

The fixture with the most drama. Manchester United were at their peak worst. David De Gea saved a penalty from Ismaila Sarr, which was retaken due to encroachment, which he saved again. However, the team could not capitalize on the keeper’s heroics and conceded 2 before halftime.

Donny Van De Beek gave a push with a goal in the second half, but Utd crumbled after Harry Maguire was sent off after a double yellow. In the stoppage time, the defense got too bad and conceded 2 more. Watford clearly dominated, with double the shots and shot on goals compared to the Red Devils. As a result, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was later relieved of his duties as Man Utd manager.

WOLVES 1-0 WEST HAM UNITED:

Simply putting it, the Wolves were slightly better than West Ham United and were able to secure the victory with a Raul Jiminez strike.

LIVERPOOL 4-0 ARSENAL:

The one to watch fixture, but had a rather expected conclusion. Arsenal succumbed to the Liverpool pressure, with GK Aaron Ramsdale saving them multiple times. However, a beautiful free-kick cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold was put in by Sadio Mane to give the Reds the lead before halftime. The second half had goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah followed by a finisher from Takumi Minamino.

Premier League Gameweek 12: Round 2

MANCHESTER CITY 3-0 EVERTON:

Another game that matched expectations. A usual Manchester City dominance broke through after an unbelievable cross from Joao Cancelo to Raheem Sterling, who put it in the Everton net. The second goal came from an out-of-the-box banger from Rodri, with the third being a tap-in by Bernardo Silva via a deflection. The viewers claim that the game featured both the assist and goal of the season.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2-1 LEEDS UNITED:

Antonio Conte bagged his first win as Tottenham manager in the Premier League, in what seemed like a 50-50 contest. Leeds’ Daniel James scored the opener of the night. Spurs made a comeback in the second half with a goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Sergio Reguillon later bagged the winner, with it being his first goal in a Spurs outfit.
