Premier League weekend results

Premier League weekend results

The battle between top Premier League’s teams provided football fans with lots of goals, referee’s controversial decisions and spectacular football. The man that stood out in Manchester United squad was Robin Van Persie who scored twice in the first half giving the Red Devils substantial gap before the break. The other brilliant player of the night Juan Mata bended a superb free-kick to push one back for the Londoners and created a chance for Ramires to equalize on 53 minute. Later though Chelsea were down to 10 players as Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres were sent off. The Blues could not stand against United attacking power when Javier Hernandez scored a winner. After bagging three more points United stands one point behind Chelsea at the top of the table.

Tottenham dominated in the first half of their game against Southampton when Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey put the Spurs two goals up before the break. But in the second half the Saints improved their display and Jay Rodriguez found the net on 66 minute, later the forward had even more chances to score but finally it was the capital club that celebrated a victory in the game. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas claimed after the match: “We wanted to collect six points from this match and the next fixture against Wigan at home, before we clash with Manchester City and Arsenal. That week could be crucial in terms of what we want to achieve in the league.”

The first half of the Merseysdie derby turned into one-man performance when Luis Suarez fired home on 14 minute, celebrating the goal with a mock dive in front of Everton manager David Moyes. 6 minutes later the Uruguayan striker doubled the lead with a header. Yet the Toffees responded immediately when Leon Osman hit one back and Steve Naismith leveled the score before the break. In the second half Everton attempted to grab a victory, but the Reds were closer to winning the game when Suarez found the target in the injury-time but the goal was controversially denied.

What was so controvertial about the main match?? Of course, David Luiz deserved a penalty for the clear handplay in the box. Of course DiMatteo deserved at least a yellow for kicking the ball out of Hernandez's hands. FA started the fight against divers with yellow cards for Torres and Valencia. Hernandez was offside but that wasn't too obvious for the linesman as he was marked by three backs and Cech. What's so controvertial???

Nothing controversial? Really? Are you 100% percent sure Torres deserved his second yellow? "Hernandez was offside but that wasn't too obvious for the linesman as he was marked by three backs and Cech" - does it have any importance at all? The fact is the goal was scored from offside. Luiz's hand? Very well, give a penalty. Di Matteo's reaction? Very well, send him off. The thing is everything should be done in a proper way. Can you tell me the referee was 100% just and competent? Watch the last 15 minutes of the game and say there's nothing controversial, when even MU fans say there is and they don't need a victory like this one. I would perfectly understand Chelsea's coming off the field in the 80th minute or so. And I perfectly understand Di Matteo's reaction. It seemed that MU decided to apply plan B after their terrible display in the second half.

However, we cannot change anything. You are going to stick to your decision and I'm going to do the same.
