Match 1 of 10: Brighton vs Wolves
Result: 1 – 0
- Brighton: Glenn Murray 48′
|1||Shots On Target||7|
- Glenn Murray just continues onward. When the startling news got through that the striker would begin here in spite of being thumped oblivious in a conflict of heads at Newcastle a week ago, it was nothing unexpected to see the 35-year-old score the diversion’s solitary goal.
- With a beyond any doubt complete from the get-go in the second half, he guaranteed his 6th goal of the Premier league season and his 100th altogether for Brighton. How Wolves could do with a poacher of comparable quality.
- The gridlock on the streets around the ground before kickoff could be clarified by this match harmonizing with an open day at the adjacent Brighton University, yet when the match moved it resembled the hosts would get schooled by Wolves.
As every Wolves fan will be quick to tell you, Brighton got lucky with that win today. But a massive win that is. Bong dreadful imo but @BeramKayal7 my mom ?? really has stepped up since Propper’s injury #bhafc #wwfc

- The main half-hour was one-way activity, all headed towards Brighton’s goal. Chris Hughton’s timid side could scarcely make sense of how to escape their own half as Wolves put on a course in dynamic ownership football. Be that as it may, just to a limited degree.
- For all their smart interchange, Nuno Espírito Santo’s group could not plot an approach to infiltrate consistently. Matt Doherty made most advances, the Irish wingback a successive danger down the right. He effervesced a few low goes over the essence of objective and was necessary to Wolves’ most obvious opportunity in the main half.
- That came in the 33rd moment when Doherty swapped goes with Hélder Costa before playing out a smart one-two with Raúl Jiménez, dashing into the container and bluffing past the last defender, just to shoot a low shot inches wide from 16 yards.
It’s has been 37 years since @OfficialBHAFC last won 3 consecutive top-flight games…

- After that miss Doherty looked significantly more exasperated than he had done in the seventh moment when he kept running down the privilege and pulled the ball back for Jonny Castro Otto, whereupon Jiménez unintentionally did the barriers’ activity by jabbing the ball off the foot of his colleague. Other than that, the nearest Wolves went to a leap forward in the primary half was when Adama Traoré constrained a spare from Matt Ryan with a low shot from the edge of the case.
- Traoré was playing on the grounds that Santo adjusted Wolves’ beginning lineup out of the blue this season, presenting the £18 million summer marking from Middlesbrough rather than Diogo Jota after a record nine back to back class matches with a similar beginning faculty. That was apparently planned to give Wolves more punch to run with their clever footwork. However, that isn’t the means by which things played out.

- Wolves, as it happened, were fortunate to achieve the break with the scores clear. Since in spite of being overwhelmed, Brighton made the clearest chance of the primary half, yet Shane Duffy sent a transcending header wide from three yards after a corner by Solly March.
- Wolves neglected to regard that notice and got themselves an objective down inside three minutes of the resumption. This time fortune favored Brighton, as a mis-hit shot by Bruno from fresh wrongfooted the Wolves safeguard and goalkeeper and rushed to Murray, who demonstrated that his ruthless senses stayed undimmed, as he cleared the ball into net from 10 yards past Rui Patrício.
- Santo made a twofold substitution on the hour, pulling back Jiménez and Traoré, the last having neglected to get a handle on his first beginning chance.
Wolves were the best team at the Amex this season but as I am the Brighton fan I was pointing out how well they played and we did win.

- Five minutes after those progressions, João Moutinho enlisted Wolves’ originally shot on focus as Doherty put the goalkeeper in considerably more serious trouble with a grating drive in the 75th moment yet Ryan tipped it wide.
- At that point he needed to make a brilliant square from Rúben Neves after the resultant corner was just somewhat cleared. In stoppage time, as the guests heaped forward, the goalkeeper exceeded expectations to dismiss a short proximity exertion by Ryan Bennett.
- Wolves huffed and puffed yet could neither thump down the entryway nor pick the bolt. That is a tenacious issue for a group who have a great deal ideal since their arrival to the Premier League however just scored nine goals in their 10 matches up until this point.
Ah Albion I’ve missed you. Thanks for holding on in there today. And well done #GlenMurray for his 100th goal for @OfficialBHAFC. Sorry not to see you there @samueljames0904 ? pic.twitter.com/LTUDahc65y

Match 2 of 10: Southampton vs Newcastle
Result: 0 – 0
|4||Shots On Target||0|
- It was a match between two groups lacking structure and investigating their shoulders. It was a challenge portrayed by physical purpose and specialized weaknesses. Moreover, it may have been recognized as a significant outcome for Southampton had Shane Long changed over the match’s most obvious opportunity as the match’s total time reached an hour and a half.
- It was a move unusual with whatever remains of the match, Manolo Gabbiadini turning pointedly on the ball 25 yards out to leave his marker stunned before slipping a deliberate go to an onrushing Cédric Soares.
- The full-back turned upward and slice the ball back to Long, 10 yards out and unmarked. The Irishman had time and space to ensure he tucked the ball inside Martin Dubravka’s far post, however it rolled a foot wide.

- Newcastle stay without a win in the Premier League, yet for Southampton there are likewise berating numbers in regards to the season up until this point. This was their fifth match without scoring and it has been 6 matches since they last won at St Mary’s. Four points and three spots separate two groups in comparative troubles and Rafael Benítez will have taken more prominent heart from this outcome than Mark Hughes.
- Hughes went for the little man/little man blend of Danny Ings and Charlie Austin in assault on this event. Ings had a couple of possibilities, the best in the opening minutes when Dubravka covered his close post shot.
Says a lot about our historic record at Southampton over the years that a 0-0 draw is a positive result
Points through something other than a 0-0 is overdue though… not that Watford & Bournemouth is the greatest upcoming pair #nufc
— Charles Crook (@chlcrk) October 27, 2018
- The match have known each other since playing together for Burnley however they got in one another’s way here and Hughes split the organization up on the hour. Long and Gabbiadini both joined the shred, and Saints appear the extent that ever from settling the striking predicament they have been battling with since the takeoff of Graziano Pellè in 2016.
- With respect to Newcastle, they neglected to make a solitary shot of note. In any case, Benítez was loose thereafter. He holds the voluble help of Newcastle’s voyaging fans, who likewise served regular volleys at the watching Mike Ashley, and now the Spaniard has two home matches – against Watford and Bournemouth – for his group to attempt and break their duck.
Southampton drops points AGAIN as they draw against a Newcastle side that we expect to beat. It’s not Mark Hughes fault I believe though. Gabbiadini needs to be a starter every week, but besides that everyone has to step up. We need that player that can win us games. #Southampton

Match 3 of 10: Liverpool vs Cardiff City
Result: 4 – 1
- Liverpool: Mohamed Salah 10′, Sadio Mane 66′, 87′, Xherdan Shaqiri 84′
- Cardiff City: Callum Paterson 77′
|Liverpool||Team Stats||Cardiff City|
|7||Shots On Target||1|
- There was a stun at Anfield as Cardiff City turned into the principal team to score a Premier League goal against Liverpool for 918 minutes. However, like always, Jürgen Klopp’s group came back to the highest point of the table as an issue of schedule; convincingly and without test. Neil Warnock was right in his affirmation that a Cardiff win here was unthinkable.
- Mohamed Salah scored his 51st goal in 66 appearances for Liverpool and furthermore gave 2 assists, for Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mané, as the hosts traveled to the Premier League summit. Mané struck twice while Callum Paterson’s reassurance for the guests ruined Alisson’s points of a seventh clean sheet this term.
Mohamed Salah (1 goal & 2 assists v Cardiff) now has 50 PL goal involvements since joining @LFC in July 2017, 12 more than any other player in that time.

- Liverpool appreciated 86% ball possesion and finished 412 passes to Cardiff’s 35 of every a ludicrously uneven first half where the main theme of note was their powerlessness to add to Salah’s opener.
- Given the hosts’ total predominance and the Egypt national’s noteworthy goalscoring record at Anfield it was nothing unexpected when he jumped to give Liverpool a tenth minute lead, in spite of the fact that it was outside of any relevant connection to the subject at hand with Cardiff’s aggressive cautious presentation before the break.
- Salah’s 33rd goal in 35 Anfield appearances originated from his sharpness and the guests’ inability to manage Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross from the right. The right-back’s conveyance, having been teed up by Salah at first, was caught ponderously by Sol Bamba who could just occupy the ball into the way of Mané.

- His shot on the turn was obstructed via Sean Morrison, Georginio Wijnaldum’s exertion from the bounce back was redirected crosswise over goal by Bamba and Salah responded fastest to change over from short proximity with Morrison and Bruno Ecuele Manga wallowing hanging in the balance.
- Anfield sat back to appreciate the parade and skipper for the day Virgil van Dijk nearly obliged with a transcending header from a Salah cross that kissed the far post before goalkeeper Neil Etheridge gathered. Be that as it may, the parade required a long time to appear. Genuine, Liverpool’s power in the main half was relatively outright and now and again it showed up Van Dijk and Dejan Lovren were passing the ball by means of Alisson just to keep their goalkeeper involved.

- Roberto Firmino even figured out how to keep a corner with a back-heel nutmeg – some way or another while lying on the ground – while the non-verbal communication of Cardiff’s forward players recommended they had taken Warnock’s remark about the incomprehensible triumph too actually. At any rate their protectors figured out how to give the feeling this was a challenge and not a preparation work out.
- Etheridge was brisk out of his crate to deny Salah and Adam Lallana one after another when a Bamba botch enabled Mané to discharge his individual forward through on objective. Salah went down under a slight touch from Morrison when Alexander-Arnold played the attendant’s freedom once more into the penalty region however arbitrator Stuart Attwell was unaffected by the penalty claims.
26 – Liverpool have won 26 points in their opening 10 Premier League games this season (W8 D2 L0) – their joint-best start to a Premier League season after 10 games (also 26 in 2008-09). Threat. pic.twitter.com/4NsID1O9PA

- Lallana thought he had multiplied Liverpool’s lead in first-half stoppage time with a header from Alberto Moreno’s profound cross yet Morrison was very much put to tidy up the line.
- Cardiff worked themselves into promising circumstances either side of the interim however came up short on the quality and attention to make the most of the last ball. They fell further behind when Firmino and Moreno joined to discharge Mané inside the territory and both Manga and Víctor Camarasa made just faltering endeavors to test. The Senegal national rebuffed their laziness with a broad shot past Etheridge and into the far corner.
- Astoundingly, and totally outside of any relevant connection to the subject at hand with the stream of the match , the guests finished Liverpool’s and Alisson’s glad record of clean sheets in the class at Anfield this season when Callum Paterson lessened the shortage with 13 minutes remaining.
Liverpool have conceded for the first time in 918 minutes of Premier League football at Anfield.

- Junior Hoilett’s low cross from the right avoided into the striker’s way off Van Dijk and Paterson gave Alisson zero chance by pushing the ball home from short proximity. It was the first run through Liverpool had surrendered a Premier League goal at home for 918 minutes, since Michail Antonio got for West Ham United in February. There would be no rebound.
- Shaqiri, shockingly dropped from the beginning lineup for the mysterious Lallana, infused more prominent desperation into Liverpool’s execution and changed over a fine third late on. Fabinho discharged Salah down the right, he chose Shaqiri inside the region and the substitute cut inside two Cardiff protectors before stroking a quiet complete inside the far post.
918 – Callum Paterson’s goal for Cardiff is the first goal Liverpool have conceded at Anfield in the Premier League since February, ending a run of 918 minutes without conceding. Penetrated.
— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 27, 2018
- Liverpool’s fourth was similarly amazing, with Salah again the supplier. Gathering Mané’s pass somewhere inside the Cardiff half he read the striker’s mazy hurried to flawlessness and penetrated the guard with an impeccably weighted ball that Mané cut over the progressing Etheridge.
