Premier League recap of an action-packed Saturday

It was Ivan Toney’s day at the Etihad at the early start of the Premier League. The Brentford striker bounced back from the disappointment of not making England’s World Cup squad by scoring a brace that saw his side beat Manchester City 2-1.

Brentford showed no signs of timidity on their visit to the Premier League champions and opened the scoring in the 16th minute with an opportunistic header from Toney. Phil Foden’s half-volley leveled things before half-time, but Brentford held their own against his relentless goal attack, with Toney scoring the winner in the 8th minute of stoppage time.

In the post-match press conference, Thomas Frank called it the “greatest individual result” in the club’s history. The defeat leaves Manchester City entrenched in second place and means Arsenal will go into the World Cup break at the top of the table.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are getting used to second-half comebacks as they came from behind three times to beat Leeds United 4-3. Rodrigo’s clever strike in the 76th minute seemed like the final nail in the coffin, but buoyed by marauding Dejan Kulusevski down the right flank, Spurs didn’t back down. Rodrigo Bentancur equalized in the 81st minute and scored again two minutes later to send Spurs temporarily to third place.

Liverpool cruised to a 3-1 victory in Nathan Jones’s first game as Southampton boss. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool and a first-half brace from Darwin Núñez saw the game essentially close by halftime. Nunez has come under a lot of scrutiny since his arrival in the Premier League, but the Uruguayan has a commendable nine goals in 10 starts for the club in all competitions.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Bournemouth beat Everton 3-0 to add pressure on Toffees boss Frank Lampard, whose side have won just one of their last five games and sit in 17th place. Bournemouth were heavily tipped towards relegation at the start of the season, but now enter the World Cup break 13th in the table. Leicester defeated West Ham 2-0 to continue their great form and Nottingham Forest beat Crystal Palace 1-0 to earn just their third win of the season.
