Gameweek 2 of the Asian games 2018 football Premier League saw football action resume in the world’s biggest and finest football league after a gap of one week. And it was worth the wait with Arsenal and Chelsea providing us with one of the finest derby to have been played in the league on Saturday, Manchester City thumping Huddersfield 6-1 in a show of strength on Sunday and Liverpool and Crystal Palace wrapping up the week on Tuesday morning in a highly entertaining match.
We begin with the best match of the weekend which saw London clubs Chelsea and Arsenal take on each other. With both clubs under new management which was seeing them play under a style and system the game was sure to give us plenty of talking points. The match was of immense importance to both the sides given not just that it was a derby but also to help certify for the winner their progress on the right path of development. And it was ultimately Chelsea and Sarriball that ended up with the three points at the end of 90 minutes.
The perfect match of this week saw an end to end thriller being played out between two of the biggest clubs in England. The match was high on action, giving us 5 goals in an intense game which was more than befitting of a derby. Chelsea rocked Arsenal early on by racing to a 2-0 lead inside 20 minutes with fine worked moved that left the Arsenal defence bamboozled. With the match under their control, Chelsea somehow managed to slip up from a position of relative ease as a 15 minute good spell by Arsenal saw them pull back the 2 goals by the end of the first-half. Unfortunately for Arsenal that was their only high point of the match. Chelsea settled down in the second half to once again grab control of the midfield, with the defence looking more assured as well. Hazard and Kovacic’s introduction spelt doom for Arsenal with Hazard setting up the winner for Alonso after toying with the Arsenal defence to give Chelsea a perfect start under their new coach Sarri.
Sunday saw us witness Manchester City at their free-flowing, attacking best. With Sane, Sterling, Otamendi, and Mahrez on the bench, City went onto hit 6 past Huddersfield to fire out warning signs to the rest of the league. Aguero was brilliant on the day, scoring a hattrick and bagging an assist in all but 75 minutes. Sunday also gave us Manchester United put on the worst performance this week as they went down 3-2 to Brighton to become the laughing stock of the week.
Today morning ended the second matchday in perfect fashion with Liverpool visiting Crystal Palace in a highly competitive game. It was ultimately Liverpool who came out on top by 2-0 with gaols from Milner and Mane on either side of the half. Palace who deserved more from the match given their energetic and high pressing game saw their chances of a result come to an end after Wan-Bissaka was shown red for a foul on Salah.
