Last Sunday Derby matches was intriguing, exciting and no short of drama. Red card, late wins and come backs.
Chelsea v Fulham: London Derby
Goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek at either end of the match were enough to see Chelsea past Fulham in a 2-0 win in the West London Derby.
Fulham’s second half performance troubled Chelsea but were unable to avoid defeat against their local rivals on Claudio Ranieri’s return to Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal v Totteham: North london Derby
The striker became the first Premier League player to reach 10 goals for the season before late strikes from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira secured all three points for Unai Emery’s rampant side.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who saw Jan Vertonghen sent off late on, led 2-1 at half-time thanks to Eric Dier and Harry Kane, but the result sees them drop out of the top four at the expense of their north London rivals.
Liverpool v Everton: Merseyside derby
Divock Origi sparked mayhem at Anfield as his 96th-minute winner saw Liverpool snatch a dramatic 1-0 victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby.
The Belgium international, introduced on 84 minutes, headed the winner home from close range after Jordan Pickford failed to deal with Virgil van Dijk looping shot, pushing the ball onto his bar which Origi followed up.
It was a cruel blow on Everton after a spirited display, capped by three clear goalscoring opportunities in the first half, had the Toffees dreaming of a first win at Anfield since 1999.
