17-year-old Mousa Dembele is the current top goalscorer in the Barclays U18 Premier League but he couldn’t add to his total this weekend as his Fulham side went down 1-0 to Newcastle United.
England Under 17 international Ben Drennan was the man who scored the only goal of the game to give the Magpies a first away win of the season and upset Fulham’s unbeaten record.
Cottagers manager Steve Wigley told their official club website: “I have to say we didn’t really create many opportunities. We worked hard but when Liam hit the post late on that probably summed the day up. We tried hard but lacked a bit of quality in the final third.
“It’s always disappointing when you lose, but once Newcastle got in front they had something to hang onto. We just didn’t have the quality to break them down. We should have stopped the goal by preventing the cross coming in.”
Chelsea were in emphatic form this weekend as they beat Middlesbrough 5-0 at home.
Ambrose Gnahore grabbed a brace while Jordan Houghton, Dominic Solanke and Chike Kandi also netted as they beat Boro 5-0 to record their fifth victory of the season and add to their tally of goals, bringing them to 22.
Spurs recovered from a goal down to beat Manchester City in a goal feast in North London.
After Charlie Oliver gave the visitors an early lead by heading in a free kick, Emmanuel Sonupe and Nathan Oduwa put Tottenham ahead before the half-time break.
Goals from Harry Winks and substitute Daniel Akindayini ensured that it was six wins out of six for Spurs.
West Ham thrashed Liverpool as Steve Potts’ side netted five against the Merseyside club.
Kieran Bywater, Jordan Brown and Reece Burke all scored first half goals before Bywater and Brown added to their tallies in the second half.
The result comes as a bit of the shock, as the Hammers celebrated only their second win of the season, the first coming on the opening day against Manchester City.
