Here are the results from this weekend’s Premier League fixtures:
Saturday 28th September
Aston Villa 3-2 Manchester City
Fulham 1-2 Cardiff
Hull 1-0 West Ham
Manchester United 1-2 West Brom
Southampton 2-0 Crystal Palace
Swansea 1-2 Arsenal
Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea
Sunday 29th September
Stoke 0-1 Norwich
Sunderland 1-3 Sunderland
The weekend’s results mean that Arsenal are currently top of the table, two points ahead of Liverpool and Tottenham. Chelsea are in fourth place with 11 points, the same amount of points that Southampton have in fifth. After their second away defeat of the season, Manchester City find themselves in sixth place, level on points with the impressive Hull City. Unfortunately you will struggle to find Manchester United in the top half of the table, with the champions currently 12th after their worse start to a new season in 24 years. United have lost three of their six games so far this season and have not played well in any of them.
Sunderland remain bottom with just one point, but their fans should be optimistic after a decent performance against Liverpool. Crystal Palace and Fulham join the Black Cats in the bottom three after loosing again this weekend. The pressure is now on Fulham manager, Martin Jol, with fans visibly frustrated with him at the full-time whistle on Saturday. The fact that new owners have come in to the club will not help his cause either, sooner or later they will want to hire their own manager… especially if results do not improve at Craven Cottage.
What do you guys think of this weekends results? Are Manchester United in trouble? Can Arsenal and Liverpool be considered as title challengers?
