Premier League Review: Matchweek Four

Sheffield United Take Advantage of Leaky Chelsea Defence

Frank Lampard is still waiting for his first home win as Chelsea manager as his side let a two goal lead slip at home to Sheffield United.

Chelsea took the lead in the 19th minute as Tammy Abraham latched onto a fumble by opposition goalkeeper Dean Henderson and made it 1-0 to the Blues.

Shortly before half-time Abraham registered his second goal of the game. Once more, it came from a mistake in the Blades defence as they failed to clear the ball, which fell to Tammy Abraham, who slotted past Henderson in goal. It was the first time in his professional career that he scored back-to-back brace’s.

However, it went downhill after half-time for Chelsea. Sheffield United began the second half with all guns blazing and made it 2-1 shortly after the restart. Callum Robinson diverted a low cross into the back of the net for his first goal of the season.

The visitors were persistent in their efforts for an equaliser and in the 89th minute it paid off. A cross from goalscorer Robinson was mistakenly put into the back of his own net by Kurt Zouma.

Thrilling North London Derby Ends a Stalemate

The North London derby always promises goals. This edition was no different, as Arsenal came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Tottenham.

Tottenham took the lead inside ten minutes, as Christian Eriksen latched onto a parried save from Arsenal ‘keeper Bernd Leno.

Five minutes before the interval and the visitors made it 2-0. Harry Kane hammered home from the penalty spot after Heung-min Son was brought down in the box by Granit Xhaka.

However, that was still not the end to a frantic first half. Summer arrival Nicolas Pepe found Alexandre Lacazette who emphatically fired past Hugo Lloris to finish the half.

The second half was dominated by Arsenal’s quest for an equaliser. That quest was completed in the 71st minute, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang latched onto a looping long ball from Matteo Guendouzi.
