English Premier League 2023/24 Season | Matchday 10 Roundup

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

Manchester Utd 0 – 3 Manchester City

Manchester City took the lead after VAR awarded a penalty which Norway forward Erling Haaland converted with ease. Haaland struck again shortly after the break, scoring his second goal of the match. He then set up Phil Foden for a third goal, securing a dominant derby day victory for Manchester City. This win took the defending champions up to third, two points behind Premier League leaders Tottenham.

Liverpool 3 – 0 Nottingham

Liverpool’s front three were on target as Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah scored in the space of 72 minutes. The Reds took the lead through Diogo Jota in the first half. Darwin Nunez doubled their advantage just four minutes later. Nottingham Forest struggled to create clear-cut chances, with Anthony Elanga’s shot from the left side of the box being saved in the bottom left corner. In the second half, Mohamed Salah found the net, sealing the win for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Salah’s goal came from a right-footed shot from outside the box to the centre of the goal.

Arsenal 5 – 0 Sheffield Utd

Eddie Nketiah was the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick. He opened the scoring with a deft touch and swivelled finish after Declan Rice’s threaded ball caught out the United defence. Nketiah’s thumping effort into the roof of the net increased Arsenal’s lead against bottom-of-the-table United. A sensational strike from 25 yards completed a perfect afternoon for the England forward Nketiah, who has five league goals this season, all of which have come at home. Fabio Vieira scored a late penalty after the video assistant referee (VAR) adjudged Oliver Norwood to have fouled him inside the area. Takehiro Tomiyasu got on the end of a flick from Mohamed Elneny and poked home from a corner in stoppage time.
