Premier League Matchday 11 Review

By  Umair Asif - 7 November 2016

Premier League Matchday 11 saw Liverpool taking hold of the pole position for the first time this season after a stupendous display of skill and teamwork against Watford. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea is just behind after registering a convincing win against high-flying Everton. Man City dropped to third place after being held to a draw by Middleborough whereas Man Utd jumped to the 6th place, courtesy of a comfortable away win against Swansea.

Leicester’s unbeaten home run came to an end, while Pochettino became the first Spurs manager to remain unbeaten in five matches against Gunners in the Premier League. All in all, it was a dreadful weekend for some but for others, moments to cherish came in plenty.  Let’s take you through every fixture of Matchday 11, as it happened:

AFC Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

Despite going down to 10-men, Sunderland dug deep to beat Cherries. The first win of the season for the Black Cats and that to away from home and a well deserved one.

Burnley 3-2 Crystal Palace

Sam Vokes opened scoring for Burnley in the second minute, but it was Ashley Barnes who netted the winner in the last minute to seal a hard-fought win for Burnley against Crystal Palace at Turf Mor.

Man City 1-1 Middlesbrough

Marten de Roon spoiled the evening for Manchester City fans, netting a late equalizer to snatch a point. Losing points at such a crucial stage is something Pep wouldn’t like.  

West Ham 1-1 Stoke

Bojan’s goal helped Mark Hughes continue his unbeaten run and stay firm on his road to recovery. West Ham failed to hold on to the lead and lost 2 important points at home.

Chelsea 5-0 Everton

An emphatic victory over Everton saw Chelsea move upward in the table to the 2nd place. Conte will be a happy man after this exhilarating triumph. Everton were beaten to the pulp by Chelsea without showing any mercy. 

Arsenal 1-1 Spurs

Pochettino extended his unbeaten streak against Arsenal in the top flight to five matches in a row but he will be disappointed to see his side draw level on terms with Gunners. A win would have been rather pleasing but still a draw away from home is a positive takeaway.

Hull 2-1 Southampton

An elating comeback win for Hull City against Southampton is just what was needed at this point in time by the Tigers. Their first win in nine matches showed their desire to win and survive.

Liverpool 6-1 Watford

Jurgen Klopp is the league leader now and it seems like the plan is actually working for Liverpool. Sadio Mane has now scored 5 goals at Anfield in 5 matches.  The Reds were just unstoppable at home. A night Watford would like to erase from their memory as early as possible.

Swansea 1-3 Man Utd

Goals form Ibrahimovic and Pogba, and two powerful assists from Rooney literally sums up the night for Man Utd as they move ahead to the 6th place after a convincing away win over Swansea.

Leicester 1-2 West Brom

West Brom spoiled the party for Leicester and not just that, they also brought an end to the 20 match unbeaten home run for the Foxes.
