Premier League weekend action

Premier League weekend action

The second playing day of the Premier League gave the fans of top clubs more than enough food for thought as Chelsea continues to march without loses; Manchester United receive their first victory in the season yet loses Rooney for a month and City ends in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

Arsenal finished in a draw the second match in the Premier League lacking the ability to finish scoring chances. After the match Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted the team has problems on front of goal, at the same time praising the defense line for the second clean sheet. The head coach claimed there is a possibility of more signings, stating ‘there could still be action in the transfer market.’

Robin van Persie scored his first goal for Manchester United thus equalizing the score after Fulham forward Damien Duff put the capital side in the lead. The game was particular not anly for the goal by the summer signing, but also for the injury of Rooney, as the player suffered nasty gash to his thigh following his introduction as a second-half substitute. Further goals by Kagawa and Silva granted 3 points for Sir Alex Ferguson team, despite Vidic own goal in the second half.

Manchester City was a step away from being defeated at Anfield, but the late mistake by Martin Skrtel gave the Citizens a point. Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini after the game was confident his side did not deserve to lose, pointing out that in the first 30 minutes the team outplayed Liverpool. Mancini stated: ‘In the first 30 minutes we had three or four incredible chances but we conceded a goal from a corner and it changes. ‘We are not 100% for many reasons, for this it is important we didn’t lose this game,’ added the Italian tactician.

Liverpool 2-2 Man City

Man Utd 3-2 Fulham
Norwich 1-1 QPR
Southampton 0-2 Wigan
