Chelsea v Manchester United (1-0)

An entertaining match at Stamford Bridge saw Chelsea eventually triumph 1-0 through a glancing shot from club captain John Terry off a Frank Lampard free-kick in the 76th minute. The match was a tense affair where Manchester United dominated possession, although it was Chelsea who had the better of the scoring opportunities, missing several clear-cut chances in and around the 6 yard box in both halves. Manchester United’s English striker Wayne Rooney went close a few times both sides of the interval but was ultimately left to rue his missed opportunities as Chelsea made it a club record 11 matches without defeat at The Bridge opening up a 5 point gap at the top of the table. Although the Arsenal team currently in second place have a game in-hand.

Wigan Athletic v Fulham (1-1)

Wigan Athletics manager Roberto Martinez was left bemused as to why his team was unable to get full points against a distinctly average Fulham side, on a night when his Wigan outfit completely outclassed their opposition. Fulham have the world-class efforts of Australian goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer to thank for keeping them in the match, earning them a very valuable away point. A well hit shot from Emmerson Boyce in the 18th minute gave the hard grafting Wigan side a deserved lead only to concede a late first-half penalty (39th min), with American Clint Dempsey not failing to make Athletic pay. The second half saw both sides fight hard but the quality of the Wigan team shone bright however in the end they were unable to score the vital clincher, due to some magical saves from Fulham keeper Schwarzer.

West Ham United v Everton (1-2)

In a hard fought match at Upton Park where both teams were trying equally hard to gain the valuable 3 points, it was Everton who prevailed for their first win in 5 matches. Everton’s goals came from a fabulous 20 yard low hit thunder bolt by returning French striker Louis Saha (26th min) and a scrappy 63rd minute Dan Gosling effort. The only point to savour in a disappointing match for the West Ham players was a reduction in the points difference gifted to them by an own goal from Everton’s Tony Hibbert (65th min). As a result West Ham United has now slipped back into the bottom 3 with Everton slowly climbing back up the table after a disastrous start to the season.

Hull City v Stoke (2-1)

Hull City manager Phil Brown breathed a sigh of relief at the conclusion of a match which saw the struggling Tigers win at home against a 10 man Stoke side that never stopped going forward. The speedy Matthew Etherington gave Stoke and early lead (29th min) after latching onto a Ryan Shawcross long ball, racing into the area to beat the keeper at his near post. Hull were lucky in a match that really did show Stokes superiority when it came to building an attack however their poor final options let them down time and again. A curling shot into the top corner of the goal by Seyi Olofinjana levelled the match for Hull (67th min), whilst a fortunate 90th minute Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink strike following a deflected Jimmy Bullard shot, gave Hull the vital three points. Stole were also unlucky to have their captain Abdoulaye Faye sent off with 8 minutes left on the clock, for a second yellow card. He will now watch the next meeting from the stands following the regular one match suspension issued.
