The Premier League had some shocking results over the weekend that at one point we failed to differentiate the big teams from small teams.
What we usually refer to as small teams turned up the heat and scored goals like it was nobody else’s business.
One such shocking result was at Old Trafford, where former Manager Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspurs massacred the Red Devils.
Manchester United were the first to score but that looked as if they had thrown stones in a beehive, because Tottenham responded by scoring six against them.
In another shocker, defending Champions Liverpool could not contain last season’s relegation survivors Aston Villa.
Liverpool conceded seven, yes, that number on James Milner’s shirt, while they only managed to score twice.
These two results proved that there are indeed no small teams in the Premier League, just bad days, bad seasons.
Elsewhere, Arsenal scored twice in the second half to beat Sheffield United, Manchester City were held to a one-all draw, as James Rodriguez put in a master class to keep Everton at the top of the table.
Here are the full results:
Chelsea 4 – 0 Crystal Palace
Everton 4 – 2 Brighton
Leeds 1 – 1 Manchester City
Newcastle 3 – 1 Burnley
Leicester 0 – 3 West Hm
Southampton 2 – 0 West Brom
Arsenal 2 – 1 Sheffield United
Wolves 1 – 0 Fulham
Manchester United 1 – 6 Tottenham Hotspurs
Aston Villa 7 – 2 Liverpool.
