Premier League Highlights – Sunday 1 December 2019

After Saturday’s six matches, another four took place on Sunday, during which, every single team engaged scored at least once, in another thrilling day of Premier League entertainment.

Highlights of these four Premier League 19/20 matches are found below, courtesy of the official UK highlights distributor, Sky Sports Football, who have enabled fans, like me, to embed the official video, to lay them all out in one place. For the fans!

Please note, I don’t run ads in my personal website. If you see ads on the video, these are added by Sky / YouTube – the highlights packages don’t pay for themselves!

Norwich v Arsenal (2-2)

Arsenal are struggling this term, to get near the high bar set in the Wenger era, as evidenced by their sacking of Emery this week, so it was perhaps no surprise to their fans that they had to twice come from behind to earn a point away at Norwich.

Arsenal’s problems at at the back, but Norwich fully deserved at least a point here, as they showed plenty of attacking flair, despite not having as much of the ball as their visitors. Pukki again looked sharp.

Leicester City v Everton (2-1)

Leicester left it very late to bag all three points at home to Everton who must feel like nothing is going their way this season. On the contrary, the hosts are showing those dangerous sort of win-from-marginal-situations results that saw them lift an unlikely title not so long ago. They couldn’t, could they?

Man Utd v Aston Villa (2-2)

An entertaining match at Old Trafford saw Villa return with a point, as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men went behind, then in front, before Villa levelled through Mings in an entertaining encounter.

United should have won this one, as they bossed the match, but were caught by some clever play by Villa, and failed to convert dominance into the extra goal they needed. They are young, though, and it feels like it may snap into place, soon, for the Red Devils.

Wolves v Sheffield United (1-1)

Both these sides have put together a decent run of form so far this season, which placed them in spitting distance of European places, so it is perhaps no surprise that they shared an entertaining point from a score draw.

Mousett scored for the visitors in just the second minute, continuing his own impressive recent form, but Doherty was able to head home to cancel that out mid-way through the second half. Honours even.

Why I Post These

I love football, and I like to be able to watch the day’s highlights in one, fast loading, mobile friendly, page, and to remember, in future, what the table looked like.

Because Sky Sports make their highlights packages able to be embedded, I can put them into one piece of content, and keep this, ad free, for myself, and other football fans, to follow the sport, here, distraction free.

I publish this in a WordPress website, which is blazing fast, because that’s what I do for a living.
