Chelsea and Barcelona winning streak halted

The Hammers ended Chelsea’s unbeaten run, gained a hard fought draw. Sunday’s game saw Chelsea draw away from home against West Ham who stood firm in the defense.

The game ended 0-0, and I would say Chelsea were so unlucky not to get all 3 points on Sunday, West Ham defended well all through the game.

Things would have gone worse for Chelsea when Yarmolenko had a clear chance to put West Ham ahead deep into the second half after a cross from Snodgrass. West Ham produced few clear chances but it was obvious that the presence of Arnautovic who had a knock in the knee was missed as they could not convert any.

Morata, Willian and Barkley should have scored but their effort was fruitless.

I guess Pelegrini who have gained just 4 points from 6 games would be delighted about the result after losing first 4 matches of the season.

Emery’s Arsenal grab their 4th straight win of the season after beating Everton at Emirates stadium. The match ended 2-0 with goals from attacking duo Lacazette and Aubameyang.

Arsenal endured the 1st half where Everton created most of the chances. Calvin-Lewin had the chance to put Everton ahead just 2 minutes into the game, he missed.

I would say Everton were wasteful as Walcott and Richarlison saw clear chances to punish Arsenal’s shaky defense.

Lacazette lashed in a fine shot following an assist from Ramsey to put the gunners ahead at the 56th minute after a plea for penalty following an handball in the box.

3 minutes later Aubameyang made it 2 with an offside goal following another assist from Ramsey.

Unai Emery will be happy with the team after winning 4 out of 4 of his PL games. Having endured defeats in the 1st 2 opening games.

PSG had a comfortable 3-1 win against Rennes away from home, maintaining their 100% league start to the 2018/19 season.

PSG seemed to be in trouble when Rabiot scored an own goal in the 11th minute.

Angel Di Maria pulled one back just before the break.

PSG kept the pressure and they were rewarded with a lead in the 61st minute by a goal from Thomas Munier.

The win was sealed by a goal from Moting in the 83 minute.

On the other hand, Juventus grabbed a late 2-0 win away from home against Frosinone.

The match deadlock could not be broken until the 81st minute when Cristiano Ronaldo scored, few days after been sent off in his debut champions league match for Juve, making it 3 goals in 2 games for him.

The win was sealed with an injury time goal from Bernerdeschi as Allegri’s men made it 5 wins in their first 5 matches of the season.

Barcelona were held at Camp Nou by Girona, putting an end to their 100% start to the season.

Messi opened the scored sheet for barca in the 19th minute.

Clement Lenglent’s red card following a VAR review for thrusting his forearm Pere Pon’s face after the 35th minute allowed Girona into the game, ex-middlesbrough forward Stuani pulled one back for Girona just before the break.

Stuani was on target again few minutes into the second half, putting Girona ahead.

Pique scored the equalizer just after the 60th minute with a fine header but despite Barca’s dominance, they had to settle for a point at Camp Nou, making them level with rivals, Real Madrid who they are leading on goal difference.
