Manchester United finally won an away game in the Premier League after they defeated Norwich City by a score of 3-1. After a home draw to rivals, Liverpool, United bounced back with an away win. Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial combined for United’s three goals, with Norwich’s Onel Hernandez scoring a garbage time goal in the 88th minute to make the final score 3-1 on Sunday night. Ole Gunnar Solskjær looks to be back on track with this League win with a win in the Europa League and in the League Cup as well. But United still have some work to do if they want a shot at the top four, as they currently sit in 7th place.

In a match up that pitted the former Champions League finalist against each other in the Premier League, it was Liverpool that continued their dominance over Tottenham Hotspur. After a lackluster draw against Manchester United last weekend, Liverpool needed to bounce back. But the Reds conceded a goal to Tottenham’s Striker, Harry Kane, in the first minute. After that, the Reds look on top for most of the game, with captain Jordan Henderson scoring the goal that tied the game in the 52nd minute, and Mohammed Salah putting away a comfortable penalty in the 75th minute to make it 2-1 for the Reds. The game ended 2-1 and the Reds continue their reign atop of the league table, a full six points in front of Manchester City. Meanwhile, Spurs sit in 11th place with three loses from their last five games.

Arsenal continue a lackluster bout of games, as they drew 2-2 with local rivals, Crystal Palace, with Club captain, Granit Xhaka being subbed off in a sea of boos coming from the crowd. Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz opened up the score for the Gunners, with goals in the 7th and 9th minute, respectively. Luka Milivojevic scored a penalty in the 32nd minute for the Eagles to make it 2-1 heading into halftime. Jordan Ayew claimed first blood of the second half for the Eagles, and drew the game up 2-2, it would end like that. This draw to their local rivals for Arsenal is devastating, after many of the fans booing their club captain off the pitch and not to mention giving up a two goal lead, it is no wonder supporters of the club are blaming collectively the player, the manager, and the owners.
