EPL Top 4 Race Heats Up In A Super Sunday Clash Between Top Teams

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The English Premier League Super Sunday kicked off as Chelsea took on Arsenal at the Bridge.
Gabriel Magalhães’ second-half strike ensured Arsenal returned to the Premier League (PL) summit and reaffirmed their title credentials with a superb 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Arteta’s men claimed the win, which they thoroughly warranted on the balance of play, to move two points clear of Manchester City after securing a third consecutive away league win over Chelsea for the first time since 1974. Meanwhile, the Blues’ 12-match unbeaten home run in all competitions since losing to the Gunners in April comes to an end, and they stay seventh.

Other matches followed simultaneously,as Unai Emery’s reign as Aston Villa manager got off to a flying start as his side defeated Manchester United 3-1 at Villa Park, also ending the Red Devils’ unbeaten run of nine matches.

Villa started the game off in perfect fashion, taking the lead in just seven minutes when Leon Bailey was played through on goal by Jacob Ramsey before drilling a low effort across David de Gea and into the bottom corner. Less than five minutes later Villa doubled their lead through Lucas Digne. The Frenchman netted a free-kick from the edge of the area, to shock a United side that had struggled to get going.

Miguel Almirón scored in a fourth successive Premier League (PL) match, helping Newcastle United comfortably defeat Southampton 4-1 and rise to third in the league.

Totteham vs Liperpool drew the curtain to an intriguing super Sunday match in the EPL. Mohamed Salah’s brace was enough to see Liverpool run out 2-1 victors against Tottenham Hotspur, marking the Reds first away win of the league campaign and extending their unbeaten H2H away run to five.

Both sides may have arrived with growing injury lists in tow, but the visitors were evidently more settled in their forced changes than their opponents, and smelt blood. No away win to Liverpool’s name after five league matches on the road has been their longest wait since the start of the 2006/07 campaign, and Salah struck early to help put that run to bed.
