Another pulsating end to the game week heading into the October international break.

A total of 24 goals were scored across the 10 match centres, averaging 2.4 goals per game.


Five teams recorded victories, with Brentford the only side that won away from home, courtesy of that late goal from Yoanne Wisa at West Ham.

Star players of the week were arguably Liverpool's Mohammed Salah and Wolves' Hwang Hee-Chan. The former for his starring performance in the 2-2 draw against Man City, creating his team's first goal and scoring the second in a Messi-esque style. The latter for bagging a brace in his team's victory over Newcastle United.

Here are the week's facts

Manchester United 1-1 Everton

Scoring Manchester United's goal against Everton, Anthony Martial has scored his first Premier League goal since February and it was his 5th against Everton, the joint highest he has scored against one team (same as Southampton) Relief.

Andros Townsend played 58 premier league matches in two seasons at Crystal Palace, scoring two goals. In just seven premier league games at Everton, he has scored three, more than in his whole Palace career. New beginning

Chelsea 3-1 Southampton

Timo Werner scored his first premier league goal of the 2021/2022 season against Southampton, the same team he scored his first league goal of last season against. First loves.

Having had a goal disallowed against the Saints, Werner now has had 16 goals disallowed by VAR since moving to Chelsea. What a luck.

Shockingly, Trevoh Chalobah's goal at the weekend made him Chelsea's joint top-scorer at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League under Thomas Tuchel with 2 goals, despite the defender having attempted only two shots. Prudent.

In a twist of fate following his sending off after drawing his team level, 59% of James Ward-Prowse's goal have come from set piceces; free kicks or penalties. Only Leighton Baines and Mark Noble have higher rates from setpieces. Master.

Wolves 2-1 Newcastle

Hwang Hee-Chan has now scored two goals in the premier league this season, more than all of his Wolves teammates combined. Aside.

Raul Jimenez has now been involved in 50 premier league goals (35 goals, 15 assists) for Wolves, becoming the first player in the club's history. Firsts.


Brighton 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal have scored just five goals in their opening seven league games this season, their fewest at this stage of a season since 1986-87. Disturbing.

Tottenham 2-1 Aston Villa

Son Heung-min has now been directly involved in 11 goals in his last 12 League games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, recording 6 goals and 5 assists. Homeboy.

Firing blank against Villa, Harry Kane has now gone six premier league games without a goal, his longest run without a league goal since the 2015/2016 season. Worrying.

West Ham 1-2 Brentford

Brentford have played four away games since their return to the top-flight and are yet to lose any; 2 wins and draw each. Statement.

Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester City

Since clocking 30 years old, Jamie Vardy has scored 90 goals in the Premier League. Fine old wine.

Kelechi Iheanacho scored on his birthday, becoming the third Nigerian in Premier League history to score on their birthday, after Jay-Jay Okocha (Bolton) in 2004 and Obafemi Martins (Newcastle) in 2008. Seniorman Kelz.

19-Year old Michael Olise is the first teenager to score for Crystal Palace in the Premier League since Clinton Morrison 1998, who was 18 years old then. Young shall grow.

Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho have scored 33 goals between them in the 32 Premier League games when they have both started together, with the former getting 17 and the latter 16. Partners.

Scoring just 48 seconds after coming off the bench, Jeffrey Schlupp's equaliser for Crystal Palace against Leicester is the second-quickest goal by a substitute in the Premier League this season, after his teammate Odsonne Édouard scored 29 seconds off the bench against Tottenham. Super Subs.

Liverpool 2-2 Manchester City

After scoring City's. First equalizer against Liverpool, Phil Foden has now scored 3 goals against the Reds, more than any other club in his career. In love with the Reds.

Mohamed Salah's Messi-esque goal meant he has now scored in each of his last seven games for Liverpool and no player has been more involved in premier league goals (9; 6 goals, 3 assists) this season than the former Roma man. Incredible.

Sadio Mané's goal was his 7th against Man City, just the third club after Chelsea and Arsenal among the big six that he has recorded so much against. Big occasion man.

Being a childhood Liverpool fan, Kevin De Bruyne' s equalizer was his first ever professional career goal at Anfield. First timer.
