Last weekends Derby Sunday did not disappoint! Arsenal vs Spurs was a classic and had everything from penalties to red cards as tensions rose as Arsenal bounced back to win 4-2. Liverpool edged past Everton in dramatic fashion as Divock Origi handed Liverpool the three points and Claudio Ranieri’s return to Stamford Bridge was not so happy as his Fulham lost 2-0. Manchester City similarly continued their unbeaten start of the season with a 3-1 win over Bournemouth while West Ham won 3-0 at St James’s Park. There were home wins for Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Leicester while Brighton won on the road at Huddersfield. Southampton squandered a 2-0 lead over Manchester United at St Mary’s as Jose Mourinho’s side came back to a 2-2 draw.
After the weekend, there was a managerial casualty. The draw was not enough to keep Mark Hughes in a job as Southampton gave the 55-year-old Welshman his P45 after eight months in charge and a run of 10 games without a win. Kelvin Davis took charge of their 3-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley on Wednesday.
