Premier League Changes After Arsenal Won 5-0, Man United 1-0 And The Leading Top Scorers So Far

Matchday 14 of the England Premier League was such a fascinating weekend, with different teams registering mixed results.

Manchester City managed a narrow though well deserved one nil win against Brendan Rodger's Leicester City. Kevin De-Bruyne scored the only goal of the match. Tottenham Hotspur secured an awesome comeback in the hands of Bournemouth, having gone down two goals to nil in the first half. Spurs carried the day courtesy of second half goals from Sessegnon, Davies and Bentacur.

One more mouth watering match was between Brighton and Chelsea. The Blues found themselves off guard when Brighton swiftly used their goal scoring opportunities, finding the net in the fifth minute through Trossard, assisted by Kaoru Mitoma and in the 14th minute through an own goal by Loftus Cheek. Estupinan made it 3-0 in the dying minutes of the first half.

Kai Havertz scored the only Chelsea goal in the starting minutes of the second half but Brighton played so well in defense of their deserved win. Brighton's efforts were rewarded in the 90+2 minutes through Pascal a Groẞ goal to make it 4-1.

Liverpool like Chelsea, found themselves pinned on the wall by Leeds United, losing one goal to two. See the results below as played on Saturday, 30rd October 2022.

Sunday's only two games saw Arsenal welcome Nottingham Forest at the Emirates while Manchester United welcomed Westham at Old Trafford.

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal trounced Nottingham Forest five goals to nil. Despite the early exit of Arsenal's star boy Bukayo Saka due to injury, the gunners proved too strong for their visitors, reclaiming their top of the table position with the blow of the final whistle.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the score in the 5th minute. Super substitute Reiss Nelson who came in for the injured Saka proved Mikel Arteta's decision right when he found the net two times. Thomas Partey was on the score sheet too alongside his captain Martin Odegaard.

Manchester United on the other hand entertained West Ham at Old Trafford in a match that ended with a hard fought win for Manchester United.
