Liverpool Scored Three Incredible Golazos Against Bournemouth

Liverpool crushed Bournemouth 4-0 on Sunday to get back to their winning ways and move up to fourth place in the EPL table. Three of those goals illustrated why Jurgen Klopp's team is one of the deadliest attacking units in the world.

Kevin De Bruyne Doesn't Get Mad. He Gets Even.

Tottenham faced a league-leading Manchester City side on Saturday and tried to neutralize them with physical play. It did not go well.

Chelsea's Title Defense Crushed By Moyes’ Boys

Matchweek 16 of the English Premier League kicked off Saturday morning with relegation candidates West Ham shocking defending champions Chelsea 1-0 at the London Stadium. David Moyes’ first victory as Hammers boss was secured by Marko Arnautovic, the $27 million man who’d yet to score following his summer move from Stoke City. 

But Moyes suddenly seems like the right man for the job with Arnautovic finding net and West Ham climbing to 18th in the table, with just their horrific goal difference of minus 18 keeping them from safety.
