NEWCASTLE REMAIN WINLESS AFTER ARSENAL DEFEAT

Premier League review for weekend beginning 26th of November featuring - Newcastle, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United


Things are beginning to hot up at the top of the Premier League table after Chelsea drew with Michael Carrick’s Man United meaning there’s just two points separating the top three - Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool.

Towards the bottom, Eddie Howe has a real challenge on his hands at Newcastle as the Magpies slumped to another loss leaving them bottom of the table, six points from safety. Arsenal were dominant throughout and Newcastle rarely threatened Aaron Ramsdale’s goal, who rated at 7.65 There was another solid performance from defensive duo Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu, both scored 7.32 and 7.98 respectively. Bukayo Saka scored the first goal finishing a slick Arsenal move earning a 7.65 rating. Then substitute Gabriel Martinelli sealed victory for the in-form Gunners. The Brazilian earned a 7.32.

Liverpool were ruthless in their comfortable 4-0 victory over Southampton. Diogo Jota scored twice in the early stages of the game tapping in twice from close range, his display got him a 7.98. Thiago’s deflected strike made it three before Virgil Van Dijk volleyed home from a corner he rated at 7.98. Saints goalkeeper, Alex McCarthy, made two mistakes last week in the defeat to Norwich and was once again at fault for the Van Dijk goal this week in a shot that should’ve been saved. McCarthy scored a disappointing 4.48.

Leicester have not been overly impressive this season but recorded an important victory over Watford. James Maddison has struggled for form this season but was back to his best on Sunday scoring then assisting twice. Maddison got a 7.98 Vardy was in fine goalscoring form, but his goals had dried up over the last few weeks. However, Vardy got two goals taking his tally to nine goals for the season. Vardy earned a 7.98 rating.
