Tottenham started the fourth consecutive league victory after a short referee whistle. The son Hung-min, who finished at the top of the table with the ninth goal, finished the defense series. During the match, the Spurs withdrew to the defense, which resulted in a goal by Aymeric Laport, which the referee did not recognize due to the game of hands.
The goalkeeper of the London team Hugo Lloris managed to keep the zero even after the break, so Tottenham was able to hit the breaks. One of them ended exactly with his first goal in the Premier League, alternately anointed Lo Celso, who was on the field for 35 seconds at the time. The goal was scored by Harry Kane, for whom it was the ninth assist of the season.
With the third victory in a row, Chelsea continued the undefeated series in seven matches, the last time in the league they lost in the 2nd round of Liverpool. The visitors got a chance to pull one back after 10 minutes, due to a mistake in the defense, leaving Federico Fernandez completely unmarked. After the break, Tammy Abraham with the third goal of the season confirmed three points for Chelsea.
Eduard Mandy has kept a clean sheet for the winners’ net as he did not miss seven of the nine games he has played for Chelsea since arriving from Rennes in September.
Brighton won for the first time in six games. Danny Welbeck soon led him against the surprise of this season. The striker, who has already hit the jerseys of five teams in the Premier League, scored his first goal since arriving from Watford in the summer.
The “Villas” equalized immediately after the break thanks to Ezri Consa and pushed for a turnaround, but Solomon Mart secured three points for the opponent. The tumultuous conclusion brought a red card for the guest Tariq Lampti and an intervention in the Brighton penalty area, which was reviewed by the video referee, but the penalty was not taken.
Manchester United could not push against the opponent for a long time from the relegation zone, it was mainly due to the well-caught West Bromwich goalkeeper, Sam Johnonston. The closest “red devils” reached the goal in the 56th minute, when Bruno Fernandez had the opportunity to shoot a penalty, but Johnston caught it. However, the video referee assessed that the goalkeeper was not on the line at the time of the shot and the penalty was repeated. For the second time, Fernandez did not hesitate and with the sixth goal of the season secured the position of the sovereign best scorer of the team.
