U23 Premier League | Gameweek 6 | Defeats for Chelsea and Arsenal

Chelsea and Arsenal both came unstuck in Gameweek 6 and have lost ground to Division 1 frontrunners Liverpool.

Leicester put Chelsea to the sword, courtesy of a George Thomas brace assisted by Ahmed Musa, to run out 2-0 winners at Homes Park on Friday. City are now four points and three places clear of Chelsea in the table.

Arsenal also had a bad week, losing heavily at Everton, and now find themselves six points off the leaders already. Marcus McGuane put the Gunners ahead in Monday’s game, before Anton Donkor levelled after the break.

Everton then took the lead after Joseph Oluwu scored an own goal, but Arsenal levelled the game from the spot – McGuane getting his second of the match.

With ten minutes to go, Everton took a decisive lead through Antony Evans and David Henen put the game beyond doubt at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

Tottenham suffered their fourth defeat of the campaign already, going down 4-2 at Liverpool.

The Reds are the only team unbeaten after six games, boasting a 100% record and having scored more (14) and conceded fewer (3) than any other Division One side this season.
