English Premier League 2021/22 Season | Matchday 11 Roundup

The English Premier League (EPL) league table continues to get intense with each passing matchday. This past weekend produced some interesting results.

Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City

Manchester City kept the ball and provided almost all the danger whether their Manchester derby rivals were in a back five or a game-chasing formation, an early Saturday morning cruise through Old Trafford netting a convincing 2-0 win to the visitors. An Eric Bailly own goal was joined by a Bernardo Silva marker in supplying both of the goals in the first half, and United only troubled Ederson twice while holding the ball 68 percent of the time and holding a 16-5 advantage in shot attempts.

Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

Kai Havertz, playing as a stand-in striker with Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner still sidelined with injury, headed Chelsea ahead just past the half-hour mark. However, despite not having had an effort on goal until that point – Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel later called the visitors’ draw “very lucky” – Burnley levelled matters totally against the run of play in the 79th minute when substitute Vydra nodded in from close range after a well-worked move.

Behind the scenes: Liverpool’s historic 5-0 win at Old Trafford

Go behind the scenes and re-live Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Manchester United from October 2021. A Mo Salah hat-trick and goals from Diogo Jota and Naby Keita sealed the momentous victory at Old Trafford.

West Ham 3-2 Liverpool

West Ham outfought and out-thought Liverpool, ending the Reds’ 25-game unbeaten run. It was the archetypal West Ham performance, punctuated with potency on the counter-attack and physicality at set-pieces, in what is turning out to be another outstanding season for David Moyes’ side. It is their fourth straight league victory, moving them to within just three points of leaders Chelsea, while Liverpool were beaten for the first time since early April, and the first time since March in the league.
