Premier League is slowly taking shape after 99 percent of matchday three. Wolves somehow managed to get a point at home against defending Champions Manchester City. Chelsea and Liverpool continue to shine with a perfect record so far. Arsenal won their first match 3-1 at home against West Ham United. Tonight, Manchester United will welcome Tottenham Hotspurs at Old Trafford. It is a must win for Jose Mourinho or else his job might be on the line. Today, as we wait for that clash, we want to look at five best players in the League last weekend.
5. Marcos Alonso- Involved in 2 goals
Maurizio Sarri might be so happy with Marcos Alonso forward runs every other minute because teams will take advantage of that soon. However, when a defender helps you to win two matches consecutively the story is very different. Last weekend, the Spaniard won a penalty and Eden Hazard converted the spot-kick. Newcastle United equalized but Alonso was not done. He found himself in the final third again and his shot was directed towards the net by Yedlin. He was involved in both goals. We can’t forget that he scored the winner against Arsenal less than a week ago.
4. Alisson Becker- 3 Games, 0 Goals Conceded
Liverpool has kept three clean sheets in three matches so far in the Premier League. The Reds remain the only team that has not conceded a single goal. Jurgen Klopp paid 67 million pounds to sign Alisson Becker and the investment is already paying off. They are top of the table with 9 points and +7 goal difference. Last weekend, he made some crucial saves against Brighton to make sure his team gets all three points. Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet can now see what exactly the fans required from them.
3. Mohamed Salah- 1 Goal (Winner)
Liverpool somehow managed to beat Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 at Anfield on Saturday. The game was not as easy as expected and that is because the visitors were full of confidence. Chris Houghton men thrashed Manchester United 3-2 at home less than seven days before the clash against Jurgen Klopp. The winner was scored by Mohamed Salah in the 23rd minute. The visitors piled pressure in the latter stages but the Reds are very strong at the back at the moment. It is this kind of matches that you need to hang on for those points to compete for championships. This result means they are now top of the table with 9 points.
