Premier League – Matchday Results Week 4

Norwich 0-0 West Ham

A goalless draw leaves Norwich still searching for their first point of the season. West Ham travelled to Carrow Road without striker Andy Carroll who was outstanding in their win against Fulham. Both sides had chances as well as many penalty appeals but neither side could put the game to bed and so it finished a draw.

Norwich: Ruddy, Russell Martin, Barnett, Bassong, Garrido, Snodgrass, Howson, Johnson, Surman, Holt (Kane 71), Jackson (Morison 63)

West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid, Collins, O’Brien, Diame, Noble, Vaz Te (Benayoun 86), Nolan, Taylor (Jarvis 57), Cole (Maiga 57)

Arsenal 6-1 Southampton

A game where Southampton scored 3 goals yet lost 6-1. They put 2 in their own net along with goals for Arsenal from Podolski, Walcott and a brace from Gervinho. The Saints have already faced Manchester United, Manchester City and now Arsenal in their first 4 games and have been unlucky to not pick up a single point! A bad day at the office for Southampton whereas Arsenal are looking quite the threat.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin (Ramsey 67), Arteta, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho (Walcott 75), Podolski, (Giroud 75)

Southampton: Davis, Clyne, Fonte, Hooiveld,(Yoshida 28), Fox, Puncheon, Schneiderlin, Ward-Prowse, Davis (Ramirez 46), Lallana, Lambert (Rodriguez 76)

Goals: Hooiveld 11, Gervinho 35, 71 Podolski 31, Clyne 37, Walcott 88

Aston Villa 2-0 Swansea

A wonder strike from Matthew Lowton stole the show as Villa triumphed over the Welsh and Benteke wrapped it up in the 88th minute making it 2-0. Swansea had a make shift defence as they had to compensate for the injury of Neil Taylor and suspension of Chico Flores. A minute’s applause took place on the 19th minute in respect of Stiliyan Petrov who is currently in remission from leukaemia. Swansea had a bit of late home but Villa saw home their much needed first win.

Aston Villa: Guzan, Lowton, Clark, Vlaar, Lichaj, Holman (N’Zogbia 78), El Ahmadi, Ireland (Westwood 69), Bannan, Weimann (Benteke 70), Bent.

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Tate, Williams, Davies, Britton (Shechter 78), De Guzman, Michu, Dyer, Routledge (Hernandez 56), Graham (Moore 70)

Goals: Lowton 16, Benteke 88


Fulham 3-0 West Brom

The Baggies went into this game unbeaten in the Premier League but it was Berbatov who ended that run scoring two in a dream home debut. Peter Odemwingie was sent off for West Brom which tipped the scales in Fulhams favour and they didn’t disappoint with the 3rd goal coming from Sidwell.

Fulham: Schwarzer, Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise, Duff (Smith 90), Sidwell, Baird, Kacaniklic (Kasami 84), Berbatov, Rodallega

West Brom: Foster, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Mulumbu, Yacob (Rosenberg 76), Odemwingie, Morrison, Fortune (Lukaku 46), Long (Brunt 46)

Goals: Berbatov 32, 45, Sidwell 89


Manchester United 4-0 Wigan

0-0 at half time and there was a hint of a repeat from last year but that was not to be. Scholes reached another landmark scoring in his 700th appearance for the red devils. That win puts United 2nd in the table, a point behind leaders Chelsea and leaves Wigan still on 4 points from 4 games.

Man Utd: Lindegaard, Da Silva, Ferdinand, Vidic (Evans 77), Buttner, Nani, Scholes (van Persie 71), Carrick, Giggs (Powell 71), Hernandez, Welbeck

Wigan: Al Habsi, Boyce, Caldwell, Ramis, Figueroa, Maloney (Gomez 59), McCarthy, McArthur, Beausejour (Jones 69), Kone, Di Santo

Goals: Scholes 51, Hernandez 63, Buttner 66, Powell 82


QPR 0-0 Chelsea

European Champions Chelsea looked to retain their 100% so far this season in the Premier League only to be halted by QPR in a game over-shadowed by the pre match handshake. QPR picked up their first clean sheet of the season and will be the more satisfied with the result than the visitors.

QPR: Julio Cesar, Ferdinand, Nelsen, Bosingwa, Fabio (Onuoha 20), Park Ji-sung, Wright-Phillips (Cisse 69), Granero, Faurlin, Johnson (Mackie 32), Zamora

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, David Luiz, Terry, Bertrand (Moses 58), Ramires, Lampard, Mikel, Hazard, Torres (Sturridge 81)


Stoke 1-1 Manchester City

The hosts went ahead under controversial circumstances through Peter Crouch and his alleged handball. Javi Garcia levelled for the visitors with a header from a Carlos Tevez free kick. Stoke then sent on debutant Michael Owen but this failed to alter the scoreline as it finished a draw.

Stoke: Begovic, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Huth, Wilson, Walters, Whelan, Nzonzi, Adam (Cameron 84), Kightly (Etherington 69), Crouch (Owen 90)

Man City: Hart, Maicon, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Nasri, Toure, Javi Garcia, Sinclair (Silva 74), Balotelli (Dzeko 90), Tevez (Barry 63)

Goals: Crouch 15, Garcia 35


Sunderland 1-1 Liverpool

This draw ended an emotional week for Liverpool after the Hillsborough revelations. Steven Fletcher is proving to be a crucial signing for the Black Cats as he scores another goal only to be disheartened by an equalizer from Luis Suarez. The points shared at The Stadium of Light probably proved fair for both teams in the end.

Sunderland: Mignolet, Gardner, Cuellar (Bramble 46), O’Shea, Rose (Campbell 72), Larsson, Colback, Cattermole, McClean, Sessegnon, Fletcher (Saha 86)

Liverpool: Reina, Kelly, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson, Gerrard, Allen, Shelvey, Borini (Downing 64), Suarez, Sterling

Goal: Fletcher 29, Suarez 71


Reading 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Andre Villas-Boas finally registered his first win with Spurs as they overcame the Premier League new boys Reading. The goals came from Bale and Defoe who netted a brace whilst Robson-Kanu got a constilation goal in the 90th minute.

Reading: McCarthy, Gunter, Pearce, Gorkss, Harte, McCleary, Leigertwood, Karacan (Le Fondre 46), Guthrie (Robson-Kanu 83), McAnuff, Pogrebnyak (Hunt 83)

Tottenham: Friedel, Walker, Vertonghen, Gallas, Naughton, Lennon (Townsend 88), Sigurdsson (Huddlestone 72), Sandro, Dembele, Bale (Dempsey 78), Defoe

Goals: Defoe 18, 74, Bale 71, Robson-Kanu 90


Everton 2 – 2 Newcastle

Everton had a great start in the season and wanted to stay in the top group of the Premier League. The Toffees started well into the game and scored the lead through Baines in the 15th minute. Moyes and his team, however, fumed after two disallowed goals by Anichebe and Fellaini. Ba secured 1 point for Newcastle in the 90th minute.

Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Mirallas (Naismith 83), Jelavic (Anichebe 44).

Newcastle: Harper, Perch, Steven Taylor, Williamson, Santon, Cabaye, Anita, Gutierrez, Marveaux (Ba 46), Cisse (Ameobi 80), Ben Arfa

Goals: Baines 15, Ba 49, Anichebe 88, Ba 90
