English Premier League 2023/24 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.

Tottenham 1 – 4 Chelsea

The game started with Tottenham taking an early lead just five minutes into the match, thanks to a strike from Dejan Kulusevski that took a deflection off Levi Colwill and wrongfooted Chelsea’s goalkeeper, Robert Sanchez. However, this lead was short-lived as both teams had goals ruled out after VAR reviews. The turning point of the match came when Chelsea’s Cole Palmer scored a penalty at the 35-minute mark. This was followed by a stellar performance from Nicolas Jackson, who scored three goals at the 75th minute, and in the 4th and 7th minutes of added time. These goals, assisted by Raheem Sterling, Conor Gallagher, and Cole Palmer respectively, sealed Chelsea’s 4-1 victory.

Manchester City 6 – 1 Bournemouth

The star of the match was undoubtedly Jeremy Doku. His first home goal for City came at the half-hour mark, a beautiful curling shot past Andrei Radu, following a one-two play with Rodri. Bernardo Silva, another key player for City, scored twice in the match, with both goals assisted by Doku. Manuel Akanji and Phil Foden also found the back of the net, with Doku providing the assists. The final goal for City was scored by Nathan Aké, assisted by Oscar Bobb. Bournemouth managed to score a consolation goal in the 74th minute, with Luis Sinisterra finding the back of the net, assisted by Max Aarons.

Newcastle 1 – 0 Arsenal

The only goal of the match came from Anthony Gordon, who was the standout player for Newcastle. His decisive strike in the 64th minute was the difference between the two sides. The goal was a result of a scramble on the goalline that was scrutinised by VAR for numerous issues, but Newcastle survived to ultimately take the three points. Despite Arsenal’s higher possession percentage and more shots on goal, they were unable to find the back of the net. Gabriel Martinelli had a chance just before half-time, but it was a routine stop for the home goalkeeper, Nick Pope.
