After a season out of the competition, Arsenal and Manchester United put Chelsea back in the Champions League after both failing to win on Sunday. Chelsea did its part beating Watford with 3 – 0 on Stamford Bridge with the goals of David Luiz, Ruben Loftus Cheek, and Gonzalo Higuain. This win put Chelsea a point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur to the third place after Tottenham’s surprising loss against Bournemouth.

Manchester City, on the other hand, was put to the top of the Premier League ahead of Liverpool with a stunning long-range goal from the veteran defense player Vincent Kompany winning the match against lucky Leicester with 1-0. 

Leicester gave a great defense, surviving 11 attempts on Schmeichel’s goal by City’s players just in the first period. The tension began mounting especially for Pep Guardiola when the teams entered the dressing rooms scoreless. After Schmeichel terminated another good opportunity from Sergio Aguero it was normal to think that that just wasn’t the team’s night but then the tides were changed by the unlikeliest of all players, the 33-year-old Vincent Kompany.
