Another great week of Premier League action gone. Here is a brief recap if you missed it. Sergio Aguero scored four goals against Tottenham, which tied him for the top goalscorer in the EPL and gave Manchester City a 4-1 win. Arsenal were shocked when Hull City went 2-1 up on them in the 46th minute and were just able to salvage a point from Alexis Sanchez’s goal in extra time. The Hammers (West Ham) hammered Burnley, 3-1, putting them in the top four and keeping Burnley from a first win of the season. Chelsea were 2-0 (one of those was Cesc Fabregas’ first goal of the season) up on Crystal Palace until the 89th minute when Fraizer Campbell grabbed one back for Palace, but it didn’t make much of a difference and The Blues went marching on (by the way, I forgot to mention that both teams were playing with ten men beyond the 43rd minute). Everton thrashed Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa side, 3-0. Gabriel Obertan gave Newcastle United three points against Leicester scoring the only goal of the match in the 71st minute. High flying Southampton absolutely obliterated Sunderland, 8-0, and two were own goals. Liverpool played very poorly against QPR and were lucky to get the win. QPR could’ve done better too though. They scored two own goals and one came in the 5th minute of extra time to hand the 3-2 (the goals came in the 67th, 87th, 90th, 2nd minute of extra time, and the 5th minute of extra time) win to The Reds (Liverpool). They also hit the crossbar twice and should have scored multiple times. Stoke City and Swansea City both scored from the spot and the game was tied at one. Then in the 76th minute Jonathan Walters broke the deadlock to give Stoke the win. Manchester United fought back from 2-1 down against West Brom to salvage a point (the first goal for Manchester United was a cracker from Marouane Fellaini and it was his first goal of the season). That’s all for Match Day 8 and make sure you watch for my next post, UEFA Champions League, Week 3, Part 1.
P.S. Sorry about the lack of posts lately. It has been an international break and none of the games were worth writing about.
