Talking Points From Men’s Premier League Weekend Action

Wilfried Zaha’s Master-class, Leicester’s close victory, and Harry Kane and Son Heung-min’s brilliant partnership are some of the highlights of the Premier League’s Matchday 11.

Liverpool showcases the strut of Champions

Despite losing their most valuable and reliable defender, Virgil Van Dijk, to injury in the beginning parts of the season, Liverpool have not stopped being one of the favourites to win this season.

The team may not have had the wonderful Premier League start it had last season, but considering injuries, Liverpool still look strong.

Possibly, the huge disparity between the North Merseyside club and the rest of the EPL is their confidence and hope to win each game they play; and most of the time, they do.

They proved their strut with an overwhelming 4-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, after which they moved to second on the table. Without a doubt, they had better players when compared to the Wolves, but how they showcased their dominance was not a matter of flair or skills but rather the result of having a winning mentality.

Leicester snatch valuable victory from the jaws of The Blades

The last-minute stunner from Jamie Vardy secured valuable three points from stubborn side Sheffield United.

Although Rodgers was able to steal a victory at Bramall Lane, Oli McBurnie was able to capitalise on their weakness with a goal in the 26th minute. The corner kick points out a defensive blunder that Rodgers needs to look at. That did not bear out to be too costly to The Foxes, as Vardy came through with a late goal.

The manager blamed Caglar Soyuncu and Timothy Castagne’s injuries for this blunder. A lack of defensive players on his squad. Thus, he is certain that his team will recover their solidarity in set-pieces when the injured players return later into the season.

101greatgoals sports news has always made Vardy one of their favourites and continues to track his progress. Whenever there is a football betting tip, Vardy is always one of the tipsters’ number one players to place an individual bet on. If anyone had in-play bets for Vardy to score when he did, there were some very good returns!

Zaha proves his worth once more at The Hawthorns

All seemed to be in favour of West Brom after they drew an equalizer with Palace in the 30th minute, but the red card by Matheus Pereira paved way for the dominant show of Zaha and Benteke.

After contributing to four of Palace’s five goals at the Hawthorns, Zaha has shown his importance to the Palace team by now assisting or scoring 10 of 16 of their goals scored this season.

Of course, all praises for the match cannot go to Wilfred Zaha alone. The likes of Jeffrey Schlupp and Christian Benteke were very proficient in the attack, with the domineering possession of the midfield by Eberechi Eze and the constant deadly runs from Patrick Van Aanholt down the left flank.

Zouma continues his brilliant performance

The Frenchman has continued to bring joy to the hearts of Chelsea fans after he added another goal to his impressive record.

His goal against Leeds United made him Chelsea’s current highest goal scorer in the Premier League. Before the arrival of Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge, Kurt Zouma has been used thinly ever since he joined from Saint-Étienne in 2014.

Other clubs such as Everton and Stoke have also loaned his services. But after his fourth goal of the season secured a comeback victory over Leeds, Zouma has gained more support and trust from Chelsea’s boss.

Lampard further acknowledges the 26-year-old centre-back as the core of his defence and a solid partner to recent signing, Thiago Silva, in recent interviews.

Tottenham as magnificent as ever

Ever since he moved from Tottenham to Manchester United in November 2019, Jose Mourinho has struggled to bring the North London side back to the limelight last season. But this season seems to be different.
The Special One, who had initially lost his touch with motivating star players for many years, has re-enkindled his alliance with players after joining the club. He has even made it his job to bring out the best in Kane and Son.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are certainly the most feared two-player collaboration that has brought victory many times to the club. The clean 2-goal victory over Arsenal on Sunday proves this. Their co-operative progress keeps on brimming with the right confidence and talent to win any match.
