                Luis Diaz (90+5’) assisted by Harvey Elliot 

Match facts: all the news was about Luis Diaz for the past week in the Premier League. The Colombian was not involved in the past Premier League matches against Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth due to his father being kidnapped by Colombia’s National Liberation Army guerrilla. His mother was taken as a hostage too but was soon released. The striker made an emotional comeback against Luton Town and was the deciding factor for Liverpool earning a Luton Town team who deserved to win this Premier League encounter considering how well they played. The Liverpool fans didn’t hesitate to show their love for the Colombian winger by supporting him immensely throughout the game.

Tottenham vs Chelsea 

Final score line: 1-4

Scorers: Cole Palmer (35’) Penalty

               Nicholas Jackson (75’) assisted by Raheem Sterling 

               Nicholas Jackson (90+4’) assisted by Conor Gallagher

               Nicholas Jackson (90+7’) assisted by Cole Palmer

Match facts: Last match of the Premier League Matchday 11 and Tottenham were rocking again as they scored in the 6th minute itself when right winger Dejan Kulusevski scored on Pape Matar Sarr’s assist. Things after a great start went too bad when central defender Christian Romero received a red card as he fouled fellow Argentinian Enzo Fernandez in the box with a high foot. Cole Palmer stepped up again to convert from the spot to bring the score line level. 

This wasn’t just enough as Destiny Udogie also received a second yellow to bring Tottenham down to 9 men versus an eleven-man Chelsea army. It wasn't until the 75th minute when Nicholas Jackson tapped in on an easy assist for Raheem Sterling and things were completely in the West London Outfits hand. 

There were some frightening bf moments for the Chelsea side as Bentancur and Son failed to capitalize on some glorious chances but Nicholas Jackson scored two more to complete his hattrick, the former Villarreal forward missed 2 sitters which would have increased his tally to five but the game ended 1-4.
