Premier League round up - Saturday 29 August

Saturday, August 29, 2009
Blackburn v West Ham: Blackburn looked to get their first points of the first campaign and they got one in a bore 0-0 draw with West Ham.

Bolton v Liverpool: Liverpool fans will be relieved that Liverpool got three points today. After two defeats already they needed a big performance but fell behind to a goals from Kevin Davies. Glen Johnson equalised for Pool but Tamir Cohen gave Bolton the lead again. Fernando Torres then scored before Gerrard, slated by his boss midweek, scored the winner. Sean Davis was harshly sent off for Bolton. Final score was 2-3

Chelsea v Burnley: Chelsea strolled to victory in Stamford Bridge today against new boys Burnley. Goals from Anelka, Ballack and Cole gave them a 3-o leave and ensures their 100% start stays intact.

Man Utd v Arsenal: The late kick-off today gave the first fixture of the 'top four' between Man Utd and Arsenal. Arsenal took the lead through a rocket from Arshavin, but a penalty from Wayne Rooney and then a ridiculous own goal from Abou Diaby gave United the victory. It ended 2-1, but it was a fascinating match which either team could have won.

Stoke v Sunderland: The Britannia Stadium has became a bit of a fortress for Stoke last season, and they grabbed victory over Sunderland with Dave Kitson's first goal in the Premier League for Stoke. The final score was 1-0.

Tottenham v Birmingham: Tottenham are sending out a real message that they are contenders this season, showing real fighting spirit against Birmingham. Peter Crouch gave Spurs the lead but Lee Bowyer leveled for the visitors. And then, in the fourth of five minutes of added time, Aaron Lennon fired Spurs to victory with a shot into the bottom corner.

Wolves v Hull: Hull got a terrific start, Brazilian Geovanni gave them the lead in the third minute. Wolves fought back though, and Richard Stearman got a deserved equalizer in the 46Th minute.
