 Man City leads; Brentford shocks Chelsea.

The English Premier League has been full of surprises this season, with unexpected results and upsets happening every week. The latest round of fixtures saw Manchester City continue their dominance at the top of the table, while Brentford shocked Chelsea with a stunning victory.

Man City’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace was a routine affair, with goals from Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling securing all three points for Pep Guardiola’s side. The win sees City maintain their unbeaten start to the season and extend their lead at the top of the table to five points.

However, the real shock of the weekend came at the Brentford Community Stadium, where newly-promoted Brentford stunned Chelsea with a 1-0 victory. The Bees, who were playing in the second tier of English football just two seasons ago, put in a superb performance to secure their first ever win over Chelsea.

The only goal of the game came in the 27th minute, when Brentford’s Sergi Canos fired a low shot past Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Despite Chelsea’s best efforts to get back into the game, Brentford held on for a famous victory.

The win sees Brentford move up to ninth in the table, just two points behind Chelsea in fourth. It also highlights the unpredictability of the Premier League this season, with any team capable of beating any other on their day.

For Chelsea, the defeat is a setback in their bid to challenge for the title this season. Despite spending over £100 million on new signings in the summer, the Blues have struggled for consistency in the league, with just four wins from their opening eight games.

Manager Thomas Tuchel will be hoping his side can bounce back quickly from this defeat, with a crucial Champions League clash against Malmo coming up on Wednesday.

Overall, it was another thrilling weekend of Premier League action, with Man City continuing to set the pace at the top of the table and Brentford causing a major upset with their victory over Chelsea. With plenty more twists and turns to come, it promises to be an exciting season for football fans around the world.
