Fan First's Premier League review from weekend 22nd of October featuring - Manchester United and Liverpool


It was a hectic weekend full of goals in the Premier League as pressure builds on Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following an embarrassing 0-5 loss at Old Trafford to rivals Liverpool.

Man United’s recent performances coming into the game wasn’t the best having been beaten by Leicester 4-2 last weekend. The Red Devils were criticised for their disjointed pressing in that game and once again Man United seemed to lack a plan without the ball getting torn apart in the first half. Liverpool ran riot scoring four in the first 45 minutes then Mohamed Salah completed his hat-trick dinking over David De Gea just after the break. Aside from the shocking Man United display, Jurgen Klopp’s side were sensational, and Salah has scored 14 goals in his last ten games. Currently, on form, Salah is undoubtedly the best player in the world, and he scored an 8.99 for his afternoon’s work. Additionally, Naby Keita was energetic in the midfield getting a goal and an assist rating at 7.59. Man United’s dismal day is highlighted via no outfield player scoring above a 3.8. Paul Pogba, who received a red card git a 2.39.

Staying towards the top of the table, Chelsea demolished Norwich by a remarkable 7-0. The Canaries are yet to win a game this season and have only scored two goals so the European champions winning was hardly surprising, however, the manner of the victory was. Mason Mount scored a hat-trick and rated at 7.98 after an unbelievable performance. Left-wing back, Ben Chillwell has been in amongst the goals lately scoring three in his last three and once again he was on the scoresheet rating at a 7.98. There was also strong performances by the midfield two of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, who’s range of passing and technical dribbling dictated the game, scored a 7.98

There was a surprise at Goodison Park as Watford, coming off the back of a 0-5 thrashing versus Liverpool in new manager Claudio Ranieri’s first game, defeated Everton 2-5. The Toffees were 2-1 up with just 15 minutes left to play only for Watford to stage an amazing comeback. Juraj Kucka headed in from a corner to equalise and begin the fight back, he rated at a 6.99. Watford needed to find a winner and who else but Josh King, the striker who had a brief spell at Everton last season, to score the third to put Watford ahead and then the fourth goal to complete his hat-trick. King celebrated taking his shirt off and running to the travelling Watford fans, his performance was clearly appreciated by his fan earning a 7.98 rating.
