Despite dominating and creating numerous opportunities, Arsenal failed to score against Southampton, and succumbed to a fluky goal by Southampton's central defender turned striker (as in lucky strike) Bednarek. Things were different when Arsenal visited Chelsea, with Eddie Nketiah scoring twice against the team that released him at age 14, including the first goal after Christensen's anemic back pass to Mendy was gobbled by Eddie Nketiah as well as the third (and decisive) goal after an interception by Arsenal's Tavares who fed Eddie Nketiah who (in turn) scored after an intricate exchange of passes involving him along with Chelsea's Kante and Sarr, who should be credited (LOL) with an assist. Earlier, Arsenal produced a great team goal that started with captain on the day Xhaka dribbling and nutmegging a couple of Chelsea players in the Arsenal surface then finding Odegaard who released Saka on the right wing, collected a return pass from Saka, and gave a simple but excellent assist to ESR who brilliantly hit the ball first time straight to the bottom corner, out of reach of Mendy. Azpilicueta, the Chelsea captain, equalized for 2-2 in the first half after Arsenal failed to clear their lines. The final goal came courtesy of Saka who got violently wrestled to the ground by Azpilicueta, instructed Azpilicueta to accept the yellow card brandished by Jon Moss, then dispatched the obviously awarded penalty. After losing three games on the trot, Arsenal pulled a win against the team most likely to finish third this season. Before losing to Southampton, the weekend had started well for the Gunners as Brighton visited the noisy neighbors and won one-nil thanks to a goal scored at the death. Manchester United labored against Norwich, and only won 3-2 as Ronaldo scored a hat trick. Watford lost 1-2 to visiting Brentford, confirming an extremely likely path to relegation. Newcastle beat Leicester 2-1 thanks to a brace by Guimaraes. West Ham were lucky to tie 1-1 against visiting Burnley, with Cornet missing a penalty. Liverpool only won 4-0 against Manchester United because they took it easy for about 20-25 minutes at the beginning of the second half. Everton scored late for a 1-1 score line against Leicester. Newcastle went one-nil against Crystal Palace. Manchester City kept a clean sheet and scored three goals in the second half against Brighton after the first half had remained scoreless. Finally, Burnley won 2-0 against Southampton, securing three points, and rendering them the only team in the bottom three to have a shot at avoiding relegation. The seven active participants combined for 53 points (for an average of 7 and 4/7 points per participant) and there was a grand total of 7 correct IKTS predictions.
