Premier League Week 8 Summary : Manchester City Draw with Liverpool to share first place

Riyad Mahrez missed a late penalty as Manchester City missed the chance to end Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season in a 0-0 draw at Anfield.

The Algeria international had the chance to snatch all three points for the champions after Virgil van Dijk tripped Leroy Sane in the area on 85 minutes, but he smashed the ball over from 12 yards as the much-anticipated top-of-the-table clash ended level.

Liverpool looked to have City’s number in a blistering opening 10-minute spell but Pep Guardiola’s men settled, limiting the Reds to few chances as both sides’ flawless starts to the season remained intact.

The point lifts City top and Liverpool up to third in the Premier League on goal difference, with City’s position heading into the international consolation after failing to end their 18-game winless run at Anfield.


Ross Barkley played a starring role as Chelsea kept up their exciting start to the Premier League season with a 3-0 win over Southampton onĀ Super Sunday.

Barkley, who was recalled to the England squad in midweek, was handed his third start of the season and set up Eden Hazard for the opener 30′ before scoring himself from close range 57′ – his first goal for the club.

Alvaro Morata made it 3-0 (90+2) as Southampton struggled to make the most of some clear openings, including a jaw-dropping miss from Danny Ings from three yards out.

The victory keeps Chelsea unbeaten and moves them to the top of the Premier League – ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Manchester City.

Southampton have now taken just 15 points from their last 20 league games, which is the lowest amount of any team in the Premier League.


 

Arsenal made it nine wins in a row in all competitions in emphatic fashion with a stylish display in a 5-1 victory at Fulham.

Fulham started brightly but were caught on the counter by Arsenal, with Lacazette finishing superbly in the 29th minute to break the deadlock, before Andre Schurrle leveled things up on the stroke of half-time.

The in-form Lacazette restored Arsenal’s lead four minutes into the second half, before Ramsey nonchalantly finished off a flowing move to add a third in the 67th minute, 38 seconds after coming off the bench.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then got in on the act 11 minutes from time to add a fourth, before he completed the rout in stoppage time as Arsenal moved level on points with Tottenham, while Fulham sit just above the relegation zone in 17th after a second successive league defeat.
