Premiership Saturday – EPL Results




English Premier League 2011-2012

English Premier League 2011-2012

The thrill of the English Premier League continued for the second game-week as a lot of surprising results came out on Saturday. With all the teams looking equally strong, I’m sure there won’t be even a single football pundit who can dare to predict the season’s final standings.

Liverpool vs Arsenal

Kenny Dalglish’s strong squad showed their talent at the Emirates stadium, while clinching three points with a 2-0 win – their first at Arsenal in eleven and a half years. Though Liverpool dominated the match, the deadlock was broken in the 78th minute only with an unfortunate own-goal by Aaron Ramsey. Luis Suarez’s tap-in in the final minutes off Raul Meireles’ pass made sure that Liverpool had a day to celebrate, and that left Arsene Wenger in frustration.

Sunderland vs Newcastle United

Steve Bruce’s new recruits could not make a big impact against the Toon-side, as they failed to repeat their last week’s performance against Liverpool. Fabricio Coloccini was the man for Newcastle who defended perfectly against the forwards of the home side in the derby match. A superb free-kick by Ryan Taylor in 62nd minute was enough for Alan Pardew to get his first win of the new season.

Aston Villa vs Blackburn

Aston Villa showed good signs as they got their first win under new manager Alex Mcleish. Goals from Gabriel Agbonlahor and veteran Emile Heskey inside 30 minutes made things easy for the home team. Blackburn did make a comeback as Pedersen pulled back a goal in the 52nd minutes. But, Darren Bent settled the match at 3-1 in the 68th minute.

Everton vs Queen Park Rangers

Everton were dealt a blow at Goodison Park as newly promoted QPR registered a 1-0 victory over them. Tommy Smith scored with a clinical finish in the 31st minute in a match which was highlighted by Tim Howard’s poor goalkeeping in the home side’s goal.

Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion

Chelsea were better than the first week today as the team registered their first win under manager Andre Villas Boas. WBA, led by the experienced Roy Hodgson, silenced the Stamford Bridge crowd within five minutes as Shane Long scored a goal for the visitors. Chelsea had to wait till the second half to come back into the game. Goals from Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda gave a fantastic win to the London club on a day when Fernando Torres’ performance was average.

Swansea City vs Wigan Athletic

Neither side could break the deadlock in the game, but Swansea City looked the better side of the two. Michael Vorn produced some fantastic display for Swansea in their goal. The match’s result could have been different than 0-0 as both sides’s missed clear opportunities in front of goal, with Wigan unable to convert a spot-kick.
