Sunday’s EPL action included the Manchester Derby as well as matches for in-form Swansea City, Arsenal, and Tottenham. Check out the results and watch the video highlights below.
Arsenal churned out yet another win with Mesut Ozil providing assists on each of their three goals. Meanwhile, Swansea kept themselves going with another 2-0 win following Thursday’s 3-0 Europa League win over Valencia.
Manchester City showed once again that a team only needs to press United then overload the midfield in attack to get a win. Moyes and United did little to prove that they are not a one man team. When United are not given time on the ball, they really struggle to do much in terms of attacking creativity, especially when Kagawa is left on the bench and players like Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia continue to play. Manchester City were very strong in attack and their high tempo pressing game overpowered United.
Cardiff played very well at home once again despite being bombarded by Tottenham attacks for nearly the entirety of 90 minutes. Even though Spurs managed to get 27 shots (12 on target) Cardiff still made it uncomfortable and came close on a few occasions. It was inevitable that Tottenham would eventually score, even though it was left until the fourth minute of stoppage time.
