Arsenal and Spurs Held as Liverpool Win in Premier League
Arsenal temporarily sitting top of English Premier League standings despite only picking up a point from their latest league fixture against Middblesbrough.
Coming off an impressive 6-0 victory in the Champions League against Ludogorests, Gunners were full of confidence as they host the newly promoted side.
However, unlike their midweek tie, Arsene Wenger’s team were lacking something up front as they can’t seem to get even a single goal in that game.
Fortunately, that result still put them top of current standings, though things can change again should Manchester City grabbed all three points on their Sunday fixture.
Meanwhile, similar result also happened to another London based side, Tottenham Hotspur as they picked up a stalemate against Bournemouth.
Tough European schedule seem to also affecting Spurs’ performance as they can’t seem to break down their opponent at will in that game.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were also suffering from Bournemouth’s attacking play, making that goalless draw eventually become quite valuable point for both teams.
Nevertheless, Spurs remain as the only unbeaten side in Premier League so far as they won five and drawn four games collecting 19 points from nine matches, one behind Arsenal.
Liverpool move to joint top in the standings after a slender 2-1 home victory against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield stadium.
Two first half goals from Sadio Mane along with Philippe Coutinho were enough to secure all three points, despite a late scare from WBA as they pulled one back late in the game through Gareth McAuley.
