Contrasting results for EPL top dogs

first_imgLONDON (AP):Arsenal and Manchester United are wilting while Tottenham are enjoying a resurgence in the English Premier League (EPL). Only four points now separate the teams in the EPL, but their recent fortunes have been very different. José Mourinho has overseen Tottenham’s climb from 14th to fifth. Jan Vertonghen’s late goal extended Mourinho’s start to four wins out of five by sealing a 2-1 victory at Wolverhampton yesterday, taking the north London club above the hosts.Manchester United are a point and a place behind Tottenham after being held 1-1 by a struggling Everton, deflating the mood at Old Trafford after back-to-back wins over Tottenham and Manchester City.Pep Guardiola’s City returned to form yesterday assisted by the collapse of Arsenal’s defence, winning 3-0 at a team under the struggling temporary command of Freddie Ljungberg.A hat-trick of titles seems to be beyond City’s players even before the halfway point of the season, with Liverpool 14 points ahead of them at the summit. But the defending champions are now four points behind second-placed Leicester, who were held 1-1 by Norwich on Saturday.At the Emirates Stadium, Gabriel Martinelli came close to putting Arsenal in front before City raced up the other end to take the lead inside 90 seconds of the game.Kyle Walker surged forward before playing in Gabriel Jesus, who squared for Kevin De Bruyne to finish exquisitely from just inside the penalty area.The lead was doubled in the 15th minute when City launched a counterattack after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was dispossessed, ending with De Bruyne crossing for the unmarked Sterling to tap in at the back post.Things went from bad to worse for Ljungberg and his players as De Bruyne struck again in the 40th while Arsenal were a man short.Sead Kolasinac had hobbled off after being unable to recover from an ankle knock, but with substitute Bukayo Saka not ready to make an entrance, City capitalised on the advantage and De Bruyne turned the ball home from the edge of the box.De Bruyne was almost celebrating a first-half hat-trick of tremendous goals, only for Bernd Leno to make a stunning save as he sent the latest shot on to the post.Arsenal’s plight was summed up in the second half when Mesut Ozil was substituted and the playmaker kicked his gloves along the touchline.Arsenal has now taken only four points from four league games since Ljungberg was installed as the temporary replacement for the fired Unai Emery.“It needs to be cleared up so everybody knows,” Ljungberg said of the managerial uncertainty. “That is something I’ve said, but it is totally up to the club. I’m very honoured, and I’ve tried to do things as good as I can, but I think, as well, it would be good to make a decision, regardless of what it is.” TOTTENHAM TRIUMPH Lucas Moura put Spurs ahead at Wolves in the eighth minute after a jinking run. Adama Traore’s 20-yard strike in the 67th looked to have secured a point for the hosts until Vertonghen headed home Christian Eriksen’s stoppage-time corner.Duncan Ferguson followed up beating Chelsea in his first game as interim Everton manager by grabbing a point at United.Victor Lindelof’s own goal gave Everton a first-half lead, but Mason Greenwood grabbed a 77th-minute equaliser.It was frustrating for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a week after winning at Man City.“Today is not a big step backwards,” said Solskjaer, marking almost a year after replacing Mourinho at Old Trafford. “It’s more of a standstill, not improving.” Yesterday’s EPL results: Man United 1-1 EvertonWolves 1-2 TottenhamArsenal 0-3 Man City Today’s fixture: Crystal Palace vs Brighton 2:45 p.m.last_img read more
