Premier League: High-Flying Everton Finally Loses But Stays Top Of The Table


By Norman Isaac Mwambazi

Eight matches have so far been played in Match Day 6 of the Premier League, and the result everyone has been waiting for has come to pass.

Everton started the league with four back-to-back wins and fans have been waiting to see how long they are going to stay unbeaten.

Yesterday, Southampton made sure they put an end to their 5-match unbeaten run through two goals from James Ward Prowse and Che Adams.

Despite the loss, Everton are still on top of the Premier League table with 13 points due to their four-goal majority over rivals and second-placed Liverpool. Liverpool came from behind to beat Sheffield United 2– 1 at Anfield.

On Saturday evening, the two Manchester sides City and United were held to 1-all and nil-nil draws by West Ham and Chelsea respectively.

On days when rivals drop points and you expect Arsenal to take advantage of that and get the three points, they almost bottle up that opportunity, and the same happened last evening when they lost to Leicester 1 – 0 at home. This was Leicester’s first win way to Arsenal in 47 years.
