There was an abundance of sporting action this weekend as Team USA cruised to Ryder Cup victory with a dominant performance. 

Captained by Steve Stricker, Team USA were priced at around 8/13, however many had questioned the team spirit of the US side and whether it would hinder them from getting the job done and capturing a rare win for Team USA. 

Nonetheless, the questions seem to unite Stricker’s side as they rallied to a convincing win over Padraig Harrington’s men. 

There were underdog stories from this weekend that did cash, however, two of which coming on Saturday lunchtime with Aston Villa defeating Manchester United at Old Trafford through a late Kortney Hause header. 

It feels wrong to regard Manchester City and their talent-filled squad as underdogs, however, they were just that heading into their top-of-the-table clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. 

Many felt that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel had the number of Pep Guardiola, yet the City chief pulled out a massive result as Gabriel Jesus bagged the only goal in the game to halt the momentum of the European champions. 

The final Premier League tie of the weekend saw North London rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur do battle – with Mikel Arteta’s side blitzing to a resounding victory. 

Three first-half goals sent the Gunners on their way as they compiled misery for Nuno Espírito Santo and Spurs, who have endured a tough period. 

There was heartache for Spurs and also bitter disappointment at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – where the reign of Anthony Joshua was ended by Oleksandr Usyk. 

The Ukrainian outfoxed the Watford heavyweight over 12 rounds, utilising slick movement and fast footwork to avoid the powerful shots of Joshua. 

Usyk, the former cruiserweight king, went into the fight as a 9/4 outsider with many feeling that the size difference between the two would be a significant factor in how the fight would play out.
