Chelsea crashed to 14th in the English Premier League after another devastating home loss to Aston Villa, while Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both shared points at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

With Watkins’s goal in the 73rd minute, Villa handed struggling Chelsea their third defeats of the season at Stamford Bridge, leaving The Blues fans across the globe frustrated.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, The Blues have won just one game, drew two and lost three to stay 14th on the EPL log.

Meanwhile, Arsenal had their first major test this season clashing with Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL.

The four-goal thriller game ended 2-2 with both teams sharing points at the Emirates.

In an unusual style, Spurs came out stronger, dominating ball possession on Arsenal’s turf.

Arsenal took the lead courtesy of an own goal by Romero in the 26th minute. But Son levelled for Spurs few minutes before the half-time break.

The Gunners returned into the second half much better with Bukayo Saka doubling their lead in the 54th minute.

Again, Son quickly pulled an equaliser for Spurs a minute later, cutting short Arsenal fans’ celebration.

Sunday’s result saw both teams drop from their positions on the EPL log, while Liverpool and Brighton moved to second and third spots, respectively.

Spurs are not fourth on the log with 14 points in six games, while Arsenal are also fifth with 14 points in six games.
