Premier League Highlights – Wednesday 4 December 2019

Another evening of Premier League action took place on Wednesday 4th December 2019, as six fixtures were played out (all live on Amazon Prime) on a highly entertaining evening.

The official UK Premier League highlights for every one of those games are below, in one, fast loading, page, courtesy of the official provider, Sky Sports Football.

Man Utd v Tottenham (2-1)

Jose Mourinho’s return to Old Trafford was not a victorious one, as Manchester United put together one of their better performances, with Rashford looking impressive, and scoring both goals for the hosts.

While the Spurs keeper could have done better with Rashford’s opener, he made up for it with some decent saves, and when De Gea was beaten by Dele Alli just before half time, home fans may have wondered if it was going to be one of those days. It wasn’t, Rashford got a penalty early in the second half, and converted it.

United moved up to sixth spot.

Liverpool v Everton (5-2)

Liverpool, by their own high standards, had looked in something of a slump in recent weeks, but had been getting results despite not playing as well as they can, so a home derby match with rivals Everton was maybe the catalyst they needed.

If Liverpool are in a slump, Everton have been in a worse state. They were 4-1 down at half time in this match, and the bragging rights on Merseyside are well and truly with the table-topping reds after this one.

Chelsea v Aston Villa (2-1)

Mason Mount scored a great volley which deserved all three points as Lampard’s Chelsea won at home to John Terry’s visiting Aston Villa.

Leicester City v Watford (2-0)

Jamie Vardy is scoring and Leicester City are winning. A familiar feeling, as we approach Christmas with Leicester close to the top of the table. Watford are in a full scale crisis.

Southampton v Norwich City (2-1)

The engine, at Saints, has been sputtering into life recently, and this relegation battle was another hard-fought victory, inspired by two first-half goals from Ings and Bertrand. The ever-impressive Pukki bagged again for Norwich, but it proved to be not enough to take anything away from St Mary’s.

Wolves v West Ham (2-0)

Wolves are just so consistent again this term, and proved too strong at home for West Ham. A goal in each half was no more than they deserved as roughly equal amounts of possession saw a higher shot count, and more clinical finishing, from the hosts, who moved up to that UEFA fifth spot, again.
