A look back at the top 10 goals of the sixth matchweek of the Premier League

Manchester United’s new signing made his debut in the sixth matchweek. This goal gave United a much-needed boost going into the second half. Similarly, during the sixth matchweek, more goals were scored in the second half. Surprisingly, three goals were scored in the second half of United vs. Arsenal. Ben Chilwell delivered the cutback pass to the German forward in the 88th minute, and he scored. The Chelsea wingback was the only defender to score over the weekend. Chilwell also equalized in the 76th minute with a sumptuous finish. United won the game 3-1 in the end. Brighton’s midfielders scored all of the goals in their 5-2 victory over a sluggish Leicester City side. The Premier League’s lethal forwards scored 23 of the 32 goals, while the midfielders scored the remaining seven. After coming off the bench in the second half, the English defender became the first player in Chelsea history to score and assist. Antony scored his debut goal against Arsenal at Old Trafford, making him the youngest Brazilian to score in the English Premier League at the age of 22 years and 192 days. Kai Havertz scored the winning goal for Chelsea in the second half of their 2-1 win over London rivals West Ham, which could be considered the most important goal of the second half in GW6. In total, 21 goals were scored in the second half, with the other 11 coming in the first. One was an own goal, while the other four came from Moises Caicedo, Leandro Trossard, and Alexis Mac Allister’s brace. Brentford defeated Leeds 5-2 at the Brentford Community Stadium thanks to the forward’s goals. Only one forward — Ivan Toney — scored a hat trick out of the 23 goals scored by forwards in the previous matchweek. Four goals were scored from corners, and three were scored from the penalty spot. Brighton’s Allister was another player to accomplish a similar feat this week. Unfortunately, that goal was insufficient to secure a victory. Two of the 32 goals were scored from free kicks. The English forward scored a free-kick and a penalty, becoming the first player to do so in a Premier League match since 2020. Michail Antonio scored the first goal for the Hammers against the Blues from a corner. The remaining 22 goals were scored in regular open play. The Blues were fortunate at the end of 90 minutes. The majority of the goals scored in the sixth matchweek came from inside the 18-yard box. Only one of them is a personal goal. Marcus Rashford, United’s man of the match in their win over Arsenal, scored both goals from open play, one from outside the 18-yard box and the other from inside the six-yard box. Only seven goals were scored from outside the box, one of which was scored by Rashford. The remaining six goals were scored from inside the six-yard box. The week begins with a London derby between Fulham and Chelsea at Craven Cottage. In the 50th minute, Erling Haaland scored from inside the six-yard box on Kevin de Bruyne’s cross from the inside right flank at Villa Park. The next matchweek begins at 5 p.m. IST on September 10. The Norwegian international has now scored ten goals in his first six Premier League games, making him the joint fastest player in the league to do so. In last week’s London Derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, Harry Kane scored the second goal for the hosts, which not only served as the winning goal in their 2-1 victory, but also helped the English forward tie Thierry Henry’s record for most goals in the London Derby. David Moyes’ men came close to sharing the spoils in the London Derby, but their equalizer in the 90th minute by substitute Maxwel Cornet was ruled out due to a foul on Edouard Mendy in the build-up.
