Aribo Scores As Saints Hold Leeds
Nigerian international Joe Aribo scored Southampton’s first goal as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Leeds United to end a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats.
It took just 15 minutes of the second half for Rodrigo to give Leeds United a two goals lead over Southampton.
With another defeat staring Ralph Hasenhuttl in the face, he sent in Joe Aribo, who initiated Saints come back with the first goal before Walker-Peters equalized.
Another Nigerian, Kelechi Iheanacho came on for the last 20 minutes and provided an assist as his club Leicester City lost to Arsenal 4-2. His compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi played all 90 minutes for the Foxes but could not help them secure their first win of the season.
In the early kick-off, Alex Iwobi and his Everton teammates succumb to their second defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to Aston Villa. After many years of battling in the mid-field as players for Liverpool and Chelsea respectively, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard faced each other as managers for the first time and the former Liverpool captain had the last laugh.
In other matches Eric ten Hag’s Manchester United were disunited 4-0 by Brentford, the same score line with which Manchester City brushed Bournemouth aside.
The encounter between Brighton and Newcastle United as well as that between Wolves and Fulham ended goalless.
