Week 6 of the 2023/24 Premier League has come to a close after an enthralling weekend of goals and drama all round. The first match of the weekend saw Crystal Palace play out a barren draw with Fulham. Everton’s Dominic Calvert Lewin came off the bench on his return from injury to score as Everton beat Brentford 3-1 to get their first win of the season.
Elsewhere Erling Haaland scored his eighth goal of the season as City maintained their unbeaten start to the season, beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 at the Etihad. Luton Town got their first point of the season in a 1- 1 draw with Wolves. Manchester United got back to winning ways as Bruno Fernandes scored the only goal in a 1-0 win for the Red Devils.
On Sunday, the north-London derby began the fixtures as both teams looked to continue their unbeaten start to the season. An own goal from Cristian Romero and Bukayo Saka penalty put Arsenal ahead but Heung-Min Son scored twice to rescue a point for Postecoglou’s men. Chelsea suffered their third loss of the season under Pochettino, losing 1-0 to Aston Villa to extend their goalless streak to three games. Sub Kaoru Mitoma scored twice as Brighton beat Bournemouth 3-1.
Liverpool made it 16 games unbeaten with a 3-1 win over West Ham. Goals from Salah, Jota and Nunez secured all three points for the Reds, taking them to second place in the league table. Newcastle United made history as the first team to have eight different scorers in one match, ripping apart Sheffield United 8-0. Eddie Howe’s men were 4-0 up by half time before Almiron, Isak, Gordon and Guimaraes sealed the biggest away win in Newcastle’s history. That loss sees Sheffield drop behind Burnley into bottom place in the table.
