The sixth game week saw Chelsea drop point for the first time this season, as Liverpool stayed on top with a perfect record so far. Arsenal continued their winning form, as Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways. Manchester United got held at home by newly promoted Wolves. Burnley won their first match of the campaign as Leicester won after coming from behind. Here are the top goals and the goal of the week:
3) Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) vs Everton:
Arsenal continued their resurgence after 2 consecutive defeats to Man City and Chelsea on the first two match days. For the second week in a row both the Arsenal front-men found the back of the net. Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette scored the opener for the Gunners with a beauty of a goal. When his initial pass into the box was cleared, it fell kindly to Uruguayan Lucas Torreira, who played the ball forward with one touch. Welshman Aaron Ramsey showed brilliant composure to receive the ball, turn and pass it onto an unmarked Lacazette on the left hand side edge of the box. Lacazette received with a neat first touch and then obliged Ramsey’s efforts with a breathtaking curler into the top right corner.
2) Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City) vs Cardiff City:
Manchester City returned to winning ways after a disappointing mid week loss to Lyon in the Champions League. Although it took half a hour for the champions to open the scoring on a rainy night, they ultimately put 5 passed the hapless Cardiff defense. Ilkay Gundogan probably scored the best goal among the lot to make the score 3-0 before the end of the first half. After a need build up from the middle, the German played quick exchange of passes amongst his countryman Leroy Sane and English forward Raheem Sterling. After a final quick one-two with the later, Gundogan found himself with some space, right on the ‘D’. The German took a first time shot that sailed over the defenders, and crashed into the top right corner of the net. The goal gave brilliant Cardiff keeper Ehteridge no chance to reach.
1) Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) vs Huddersfield Town:
Jamie Vardy is back, and how. He first assisted Iheancho for Leicester’s equalizer. Later he did what he is known best for – HE SCORED A FANTASTIC GOAL. Leicester City made a comeback into the match against Huddersfield to lead 2-1 after Maddison scored a brilliant free kick in the second half. Vardy decided to hog the whole of limelight onto himself after he scored another brilliant finish. Iheanacho played a brilliantly weighted ball for Vardy to run in from behind the defence. After a long run from near the half way line Vardy produced a finish that is worthy of him. On seeing the goalkeeper advancing, the recently retired England international produced a delightful chip to put the ball in the back of the net. Unsurprisingly this brilliant goal from the Leicester man is our Goal of the Week.
