The ongoing Premier League season has delivered many memorable moments that will stay in our hearts forever. While this can be a subjective topic, these are what we believe to be the top 5:
1. Bruno Fernandes’ hat-trick (Manchester United vs. Leeds)
In a spectacular display, Bruno Fernandes scored a hat-trick when Manchester United was squaring off against Leeds, resulting in a 5-1 score. The crowd inside the Old Trafford received quite a treat as Fernandes demonstrated his footballing prowess. Initially, the fans were scared of the outcome due to Jadon Sancho starting on the bench, but as the match unraveled, these fears were effectively laid to rest. Shoutouts to Paul Pogba for chiming in with four assists!
2. Brighton’s pleasant surprise (Brighton vs. Burnley)
The Seagulls face a ton of pressure on social media due to having developed a reputation of under-performing their Expected Goals. But contrary to people’s expectations, Brighton ended the match against Burnley 2-1, clearly demonstrating they still have what it takes to make it work.
3. Michail Antonio wearing number 9 like a boss (Newcastle vs. West Ham)
Switching from number 30 to number 9 made Michail Antonio get a larger share of the spotlight, and it was well-deserved indeed. With his help, West Ham delivered a stunning performance which concluded with a decisive 4-2 against Newcastle. Judging by his own words, he embraced his new role as a centre-forward with a fair degree of confidence and it made all the difference.
4. Rafa Benitez wins over the fans
Rafa Benitez is an ex-Liverpool manager and is still widely regarded as such by many. Therefore, winning over Everton’s fans is not something that can be achieved overnight, especially due to the fact that he has faced many objections on their end. But it was the match against Southampton that Everton took down 3-1 and it’s what signaled the start of a new era. While Benitez may not have won over all of the fans, things are certainly working in his favor right now.
5. Jamie Vardy is still quite a performer
Despite being 34 years of age, Jamie Vardy still has what it takes to bring his A-game. When Leicester took down Wolves in a spectacular display that concluded with a 1-0, the highlight of the match was his 119th Premier League goal. Given his performance, he doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down.
