No Ozil, No Problem: 4 Talking Points From Premier League Matchday Three —1




The English Premier League entered week three at the weekend with Manchester City facing newcomers Wolverhampton on Saturday.

The encounter ended in a very surprising way as the Citizens were held to a 1-1 draw by the Wolves who were lively throughout the encounter.

After witnessing all the matches (except United vs Tottenham) played during the weekend, here are four talking points.

Alisson Yet To Concede After Three Games

Liverpool are the only Premier League side yet to concede so far this season. The reason for their impressive record is not far-fetched, that’s their resolute defense unit which is coordinated by Alisson Becker.

As usual, the Brazilian goaltender was lively for the Reds who narrowly defeated a ‘difficult’ Brighton side by a lone goal.

The £65m-rated goalie was available to deny Pascal Gross a last-minute equalizer as he made a point-blank save, four minute to the end of the game.

His big-money move to Anfield was criticized by many pundits and managers but the goalie is surely justifying his price tag with inspiring performances.

No Ozil, No Problem For Arsenal

The Gunners recorded their first win of the season as they thrashed the Hammers 3-1 at Emirates Stadium.

Eyebrows were raised when Emery unexpectedly dropped Ozil from his squad list but the manager was justified as his side didn’t miss the German during the encounter.

It is yet to be seen if Emery would bring the playmaker back into his starting lineup in subsequent matches.
