Premier League roundup: Gameweek 4
Last weekend was possibly one of the strangest, most exciting, and surprising weekends of Premier League football in a long time, with some shock results and big upsets to really shake up the table early on in the season.
Saturday’s results included a big 4-0 victory for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea over Crystal Palace, a step in the right direction for the Blues, as well as a 4-2 win over Brighton for Everton, taking them to top of the league with four wins from four.
Sunday produced some of the most incredible football that many haven’t seen for some time – with West Ham beating Leicester 3-0, Tottenham beating Manchester United 6-1, and Premier League champions Liverpool losing a jaw-dropping 7-2 to Aston Villa.
Let’s take a closer look at those results, and compare them to my Premier Picks predictions for gameweek 4…
Chelsea 4-0 Crystal Palace
It was a stark contrast from my prediction of a 2-2 draw between the two sides, and all credit to Chelsea for that, with Frank Lampard’s side finding their feet in the second half to produce a 4-0 victory over a Crystal Palace side that had started the season well.
New boy Ben Chilwell the opening goal of the game on his debut, and was the provider for the club’s second, with a header from fellow defender Kurt Zouma.
It was a tough game for Palace, who didn’t see too much of the ball during the game with only 29.1% possession, leaving them with 6 points from a possible 12, and Chelsea with 7 from the same.
