Four meetings were scheduled for this traditional multiplex across the Channel as part of: Premier League matchday 10. Among these four appointments are the reigning English champions, Manchester City. The Arsenal dolphin got Southampton, 16th in the standings and a small point out of the red zone for this weekend. When Erling Haaland, controlled by the post, missed his first game against Gavin Bazunu, his team-mate Joao Cancelo was quick to trick the Irish goalkeeper after a stellar run down his lane served in midfield by Phil Foden.
The English attacking midfielder even offered himself a goal after half an hour, his sixth in the league. With full control in this encounter, the Skyblues widened the gap on the return from the locker room with a stunning volley from Riyad Mahrez, allowing the 2019 African champions to unlock his goal counter in this drill. The Norwegian Cyborg finally distinguished himself after the hour with a perfect low cross from Cancelo for his 15th goal of the season in all competitions. City becomes provisional leaders and hope for a misstep by Arsenal, who play against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon (5:30 p.m.) to retain the throne.
🇳🇴 Erling Haaland (9 matches) is the fastest player to score 15 goals in @Eredivisie. @PSSportsFR #MCISOU

Chelsea and Newcastle confirm
After winning his first game at Crystal Palace last week, Graham Potter has a second success on the Chelsea bench, it was at home against Wolves. It wasn’t until added time in the first half that Kai Havertz saw the score open, before Christian Pulisic doubled the lead in the second half on a serve from his attacking buddy Mason Mount. Broja’s late goal then confirms the three important points in favor of the Blues, who move up to 4th place, a small point behind their London rivals Tottenham.
Another formation confirmed this Saturday afternoon: Brentford winners Newcastle posted a second Premier League win after Fulham. The Magpies, who may thank former Lyonnais Bruno Guimaraes (author of a doppelganger), temporarily rose to 5th place. Different fate for Leicester, overthrown at Bournemouth. The Foxes, weighed down by the first two months of complicated competition, remain in the relegation zone (19th) and fall back in their ways…
