Another weekend of thrilling Premier League football has been and gone as match week 6 presented us with more magical moments. There was controversy at Old Trafford prior to kick off as skipper Wayne Rooney was dropped, but in the end Mourinho’s tactics payed off as United ran riot with a 4-1 win over current league champions Leicester City. Arsenal produced a stunning first half display scoring 3 goals in 40 minutes to sweep Chelsea under the carpet. Liverpool produced a brilliant display to beat Hull City 5-1 and Bournemouth ran out as surprising 1-0 winners against a poor Everton side.
With that said, here are AFEfootballnews’ best pictures and facts from this weekend’s fixtures, as well as the full time results …
Some interesting facts from the weekend:
Man Utd led by a four-goal margin at half-time in a PL match for the first time since February 2001 v Arsenal (5-1 at half-time, 6-1 at full-time). Sign of better things to come perhaps?
Since Jurgen Klopp’s first match in charge Liverpool have scored 71 goals in the Premier League; more than any other side. Lethal.
South Korean attacker Son Heung-min has had a hand in seven goals (six goals, one assist) in his last six PL appearances for Spurs, already equaling his tally from last season. Impressive.
Since leaving Stoke Tony Pulis is unbeaten in his five Premier League matches against them (W4 D1). Although they got their first point against him this weekend!
Their win against Sunderland was only the second time that Crystal Palace have come from two goals down to win a match in PL history (Burnley 2-3 Palace in Jan 2015, the other). Turn around in fortunes.
After six Premier League matches without scoring against Chelsea, Arsenal found the net twice in the opening 14 minutes. The long wait for a win against their London rivals is finally over.
