#PremierLeague Gameweek 2 – 30 Things We Learned

Hi guys! Welcome to the second ’30 Things We Learned’ of the season, where today I (surprisingly!) have three things from all ten matches that we learned over last weekend’s Premier League action. Enjoy!

Cardiff City 0-0 Newcastle United

  • It is possible for one player to complete no passes in a half, almost get sent off and then miss a last minute penalty. Hats off to Newcastle’s Kenedy.
  • Neil Etheridge is a penalty saving genius.
  • VAR would be good for the Premier League, as there were three poor decisions in this game.

Everton 2-1 Southampton

  • Richarlison has started the season excellently, so Richarlimum and Richarlidad will be proud.
  • Everton are going to score plenty of goals this season.
  • Danny Ings may finally prosper at Southampton.

Leicester City 2-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Wolves need an out-and-out goalscorer in their team to make the most of their potential.
  • James Maddison is an excellent signing for Leicester.
  • Leicester aren’t missing Riyad Mahrez (yet).

Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Fulham

  • Harry Kane CAN score in August!
  • Fulham need to learn to take their chances.
  • Kieran Trippier’s free kicks are on another planet.

West Ham United 1-2 Bournemouth

  • Callum Wilson loves August.
  • West Ham have now lost more than they have won at the London Stadium.
  • Bournemouth are having their customary excellent start.

Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

  • Unai Emery needs at least two more transfer windows to improve his team.
  • Chelsea and Arsenal’s defences are poor.
  • Pedro is having a resurgence under Maurizio Sarri.

Burnley 1-3 Watford

  • Burnley didn’t bring in enough new players in the transfer window.
  • Javi Gracia has finally been the man to unite Watford’s talented players.
  • Troy Deeney and Andre Gray are a dangerous strike partnership.

Manchester City 6-1 Huddersfield Town

  • Man City are going to romp plenty of teams this season.
  • This season is going to be very tricky for Huddersfield to survive.
  • Sergio Aguero is unstoppable when on form.

Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2 Manchester United

  • Brighton love a home match against Man United.
  • Jose Mourinho may be in his usual ‘Third Season Syndrome’ at United.
  • United are going to struggle to challenge for the league if they don’t sort out their defence.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool

  • James Milner has STILL never lost in games he has scored in, a record which stretches back to his first goal for Leeds United 16 years.
  • Liverpool are going to put up a strong challenge for the title.
  • When Wilfried Zaha doesn’t perform, Liverpool don’t perform.

And finally, the fact of the week… Manchester United last won a match by five or more goals in August 2011. Since then, Manchester City have done that feat 21 times!
