Newcastle run riot, brilliant Bruno, and Raya’s reflexes

Newcastle run riot, brilliant Bruno, and Raya’s reflexes

There’s plenty to stew on following another round of brilliant Premier League action. 

We’ve divvied out some weekly awards following a lively North London Derby, a record win by Newcastle United, a moment of magic from Bruno Fernandes, and much more.

Player of the Week

A hat-trick of assists and a clean sheet clinch this award for Kieran Trippier as Newcastle tore apart Sheffield United to win 8-0.


Three tremendous assists from @trippier2 this afternoon! 💫

— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) September 24, 2023

It’s the first time in Premier League history that there have been eight different scorers in a single game and it was the club’s biggest ever win away from home. It also equalled their record league victory, matching their win over Sheffield Wednesday by the same margin in 1999.

Goal of the Week

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes will never hit a sweeter strike in his career than he did against Burnley.

Take a bow Bruno Fernandes 🤩🔥

Jonny Evans deserves endless flowers for the assist, too.

Man Utd tried to offload duo in as part of Hojlund transfer

Pass of the Week

Alexis Mac Allister provided a delightful golf chip of an assist for Darwin Nunez as Liverpool beat West Ham 3-1.

The assist.
The finish.
The celebrations.

🗣️ ¡VAAAAAMOS! 🗣️ @Darwinn99

Premier League team of the week from matchday six

Save of the Week

There were a few contenders for best save this week, but Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya sprinting the length of the goal to deny Brennan Johnson his first goal for Spurs edges it. The shot was a little scuffed, but the Spaniard’s recovery after being caught off the line was sublime.

Ramsdale 👏 Raya

Howler of the Week

Brighton’s Bart Verbruggen won’t want to watch this back again. Fortunately for the Dutch goalkeeper, the Seagulls came from behind to beat Bournemouth 3-1.

The perfect press 😮‍💨@HendyGroup // #afcb

— AFC Bournemouth 🍒 (@afcbournemouth) September 25, 2023

Jorginho deserves a dishonourable mention for gifting Tottenham an equaliser immediately after Arsenal retook the lead in the second half of the North London Derby.

Miss of the Week

Ansu Fati passed up the perfect opportunity to open his account for Brighton in the Premier League when he somehow diverted the ball high and wide right in front of the goal.

Five things we learned from the Premier League weekend

Stat of the Week

Yet another record for Mo Salah to add to the collection.

Players to score or assist in each of their teams’ first six matches of a Premier League season:

✨ Mo Salah – Liverpool (2023/24) ✨
Erling Haaland – Man City (2022/23)
Sergio Aguero – Man City (2019/20)
Thierry Henry – Arsenal (2004/05)
David Beckham – Man Utd (2000/01)

Moment of Madness

It’s rare enough to see Rodri lose his head, but he truly lost the plot against Nottingham Forest on Saturday when he put his hands on the neck of Morgan Gibbs-White. The Manchester City midfielder will now miss next month’s huge Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Tweet of the Week 

Former Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow was in the away end at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, joining in the chants as the Birmingham outfit defeated Chelsea 1-0. Brilliant stuff.

Hahaha UTV 😂

Casemiro’s cooked, Chelsea in crisis, and Neil Warnock’s a you-know-what

Quote of the Week

Ange Postecoglou spoke for everyone on the handball rule after his Tottenham side conceded a harsh penalty against Arsenal.

‘Unless we start developing 𝗮𝗿𝗺𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀 I don’t know how you’re supposed to block things.’ 🤷🏻‍♂️😬
