Pep Guardiola’s Manchester city kept the pace at the top of the table, Conte’s faith in Morata is proving to be the right choice while Sergio Aguero just wouldn’t stop scoring anytime soon.
Here are the five things we learned from the premier league this weekend
1. Coutinho showed exactly what Liverpool have been missing
Philippe Coutinho had handed in a transfer request during the close season. The Brazilian star was somewhat desperate especially at the end of the transfer market to get himself out of Liverpool.
2. Niasse spares Ronald Koeman’s Everton blushes
Just four days ago, Ronald Koeman told Oumar Niasse to think of seeking first team action somewhere else if truly he loves to play football seeing that his chances are limited with the Toffees. The Senegalese forward had previously been on loan to Hull city after he was frozen out of the team to train with Everton’s u23 side.
3. Morata finally scores with his foot
Critics moved from stating that Alvaro Morata won’t be a suitable replacement for Diego Costa as they claimed that the combativeness and physical demands of the premier league would not include suite Morata’s style of play as he heavily relies on his pace and movement to adjudging that he only scores with his head.
4. Mauricio Pochettino must get Aurier’s head together
Ivory coast’s Serge Aurier full Tottenham debut ended up to be sweet-bitter. The controversial defender left Paris Saint Germain to Tottenham amidst some troubles, there is no doubting his abilities, but certainly, no manager wants an extra burden on his neck. He moved swiftly forward to provide Christian Eriksen with the deciding goal in a high-intensity London derby against Westham which ended 3:2 in spurs favour.
5. Sergio Kun Aguero just wouldn’t stop scoring
It was a difficult time last season for Sergio Aguero especially when Gabriel Jesus was preferred to him in Manchester city’s starting eleven. Guardiola had dropped Aguero for Jesus stating that he preferred the young Brazilian’s pattern of play to Aguero. As things would unfold, Jesus got injured and Aguero was injected back into the team, an opportunity he took brilliantly by scoring loads of goals.
