This weeks premier league #Matchday games were played on Tuesday and Wednesday and as the festive season nears the more fixtures teams will be expected to play.

Man Utd vs Watford

On Tuesday we saw Man Utd beat Watford away from home unexpectedly. Watford started the game really well, dominating possession and attacking well but Manchester United's class was on show as they beat Watford 4-2, thanks to two amazing goals by Ashley Young who stole the show along with Antony Martial and a great solo goal by Jesse Lingard. Jose Mourinho will be pleased with this result and would be hoping his team will do the same away at Arsenal. Despite Watford's loss, they won't be too put down as they so far have exceeded expectations, but Marco Silva may have to make some adjustments to his back line.

Other games

Crystal Palace could only secure a draw against Brighton. They both needed points and only managed to get 1 each but they will be hoping to get back to winning in their next matches. Newcastle and #West Brom were also held even as the match ended 2-2. West Brom opened the scoring as Hal Robson-Kanu scored in the 45th minute before the first half ended. Then 19-year-old, Sam Field scored his first top-flight goal for the club. On the day he had the best passing range and many fans praised his amazing display. West Brom without a manager has now tied two matches in a row after the sacking of Tony Pulis and are now taking the right steps to hopefully stay distant from relegation.

Tottenham edged the side in terms of stats but couldn't manage to finish their chances, except Harry Kane as usual. Tottenham have now dropped 7 points from their last 3 games and their rivals can now get a 4 point lead if they beat Huddersfield.

Wednesday's fixtures

In Wednesday's fixtures, we saw plenty of goals including 5 by Arsenal. Arsene Wenger's men managed to improve in the second half as at times they were sloppy but their class showed through as Mesut Ozil guided Arsenal to victory with 2 assists and a goal for himself. Huddersfield tried their best but have now not managed to score away from home in their last two matches.The remaining games on Wednesday saw Burnley claim points away at Bournemouth with a 2-1 win, Chelsea beat Swansea city 1-0 and Everton finally won a game as Wayne Rooney performed outstandingly on the day. The match ended in a 4-0 thumping. Man City played Southampton at home and Sterling scored a 96th-minute goal, winning in the additional time really proves the side has the right mentality to win the league as they still maintain their 100% record. Lastly, Liverpool beat Stoke City 3 goals to nil.
