It is a good day to return back and have you wonderful people reading again. This week marks the return to the English premier league after the International break.


We see Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham side top the EPL table, The special one is all brimming with smiles after the win against Man City.
It is always a battle of hot rivalry between Jose Mourinho and his old adversary Pep Guardiola. Only that this time, the Spurs manager came out on top.
Son Heung-min scored to put Spurs in front after five minutes with an assist from Tanguy Ndombele’s pass. Then, Manchester City had a first-half goal ruled out by VAR for a handball by Gabriel Jesus after Aymeric Laporte’s finish.
The second goal that sealed the victory for Spurs came in the 65th minute after Giovani lo Celso beat Ederson with a low finish. He was assisted by Kane about 35 seconds after coming on for Tanguy Ndombele.
Spurs are currently building momentum and becoming a threat, as proved by the way they stayed in the game to keep Manchester City out before striking to deadly effect.
It has only been a year since the popular gaffer; Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs part ways and the team are starting to resemble Mourinho’s rigidity and solidness which has been marshaled by the highly effective midfield block; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, a summer arrival from Southampton.

Away from Tottenham, ChelseaFC started the weekend on a very good note. Getting a brace and 3 points off Newcastle United. An own goal by Federico Fernandez and a Tammy Abraham strike secured a fifth successive victory in all competitions.
Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard says his team need to “remain humble” after moving third in the Premier League table. Two points away from joint leaders, Tottenham and Liverpool who are both on 20points.

At Old Trafford, Bruno Fernandes’ second-half penalty gave Manchester United their first Premier League victory of the season at home.
West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone, a former United player made a string of superb saves to deny his old club, included a splendid save from Fernandes’ initial kick.
However, VAR intervened as the keeper was clearly off his line and Fernandes didn’t gamble with his second attempt.
The defeat leaves West Brom still searching for their first win of the season.
United are in the top half of the table for the first time this season after successive victories. And, given the backlash the team was subjected to before the win at Everton on Match day 8, this must be some sort of relief for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Especially now that he is in above Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on the table.

Arteta’s worries goes on after Nicolas Pepe was sent off for a headbutt at Leeds. Marcelo Bielsa’s team wasted a host of chances, before and after Pepe was dismissed after a VAR consultation that shows him sticking his head into Ezgjan Alioski’s face.
Arsenal were poor yet again –
They have managed just one Premier League goal in five games, an Aubameyang penalty against Manchester United in 4 October.
Both sides came into the game out of form – with three defeats in their previous four league games.
Although, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will be happy with his side’s performance, except the finishing. Mikel Arteta will also be relieved to have picked up a point.
Arsenal remain in the bottom half of the table, moving up to 11th, two points above Leeds in 14th.

Liverpool remain behind Spurs on goal difference. The reds thwarted Leicester City’s hopes of going top with a terrific performance that earned them victory at Anfield. Establishing a new club record of 64 home league games unbeaten, breaking their previous best run, which was set between February 1978 and January 1981 and coincidentally, it was ended by Leicester.
Klopp’s side took the lead midway through the first half when Jonny Evans nodded a corner into his own net and the advantage was doubled four minutes before half-time when a string of 30 passes ended with Diogo Jota heading in Andrew Robertson’s superb cross. The prolific Jota, who signed from Wolves for £45m in September, became the first player in the club’s history to score in his first four competitive home appearances.
Leicester improved marginally in the second half but it was still Liverpool who had the upper hand.
Firmino made it three when he rose to send a fine header out of Schmeichel’s reach four minutes from time to give Liverpool the victory and total silence to the Fox.
Despite the injuries and loads of absent senior members of the team, Jurgen Klopp has been able to forge out a good team and Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Frank Lampard, and others, will harbour ambitions playing like them and taking Liverpool’s crown.

On this fact and the way Liverpool are playing, it will take some strong doing to beat them off the table.
And that will be all on the review this week. This weekend comes with great and exciting features which includes Tottenham Vs Chelsea. That’s is sure going to be a tug of war. Send in your prediction of the match before Friday in the comment and stand a chance to win an airtime.
