Premier League: Match-Day 11 Review

Match-day 11 was another exciting round of action full of goals, upsets and controversy, here is a review of the action.

Liverpool bounced back from last weeks defeat to Arsenal with an emphatic victory over Fulham at Anfield, Suarez stole the show with two goals, bringing his tally for the season to 8 in only 6 games, a Skrtel header and an own-goal from Amorebieta began the rout as Liverpool ran out 4-0 winners.

Stamford Bridge expected a routine victory for Chelsea when West Brom came to visit on Saturday but this was not the case, Samuel Eto'o opened the scoring for Chelsea on the stroke of half-time, However second-half goals from Long and Sessegnon stunned the bridge, West Brom were unable to hang on and Eden Hazard scored an injury time penalty, after a dubious decision, to make it 2-2 and secure a point for Chelsea.

Arsenal’s great run came to an end at the hands of Manchester United, losing 1-0 at Old Trafford, Robin Van Persie scored a great header in the first-half to seal the points for United, Arsenal may have been fatigued from their mid-week victory over Dortmund, but take nothing away from Man Utd, they deserved the victory.

Man City were shocked by Sunderland as they lost 1-0 at the Stadium of Light, a brilliant first-half goal from Phil Bardsley was enough for Gus Poyet’s side to grab all 3 points, despite a second-half onslaught, Man City were unable to pull one back.

Newcastle added to last week’s victory over Chelsea by beating Spurs at White Hart Lane, Newcastle, playing in a Brazilian style away kit, upset the odds with a 1-0 victory courtesy of Loic Remy, Spurs were booed off the field for their poor performance and the defeat has piled the pressure on AVB.

In the game of the week-end, Swansea and Stoke played out a 3-3 thriller at the Liberty Stadium, Stoke surprisingly went in at half-time 2-0 up after two Irishmen, Walters and Ireland, got on the score-sheet, Swansea scored 3 second-half goals through Bony (2) and Dyer but were denied a win when Charlie Adam scored from the penalty spot in the 96th minute to earn a deserved draw for Stoke.

In the week-ends other games Everton drew 0-0 away to Crystal Palace, Southampton hammered Hull 4-1 at St Mary’s, with Lallana scoring a marvellous individual goal to keep their early season form going. Also, Aston Villa beat Cardiff 2-0 at Villa Park and Norwich overcame West Ham at Carrow Road with a 3-1 victory.
