Sunderland Continue To Lead

After a strong win at home against Manchester City, Sunderland still maintain a 100% record in the league. Their biggest test is on the weekend when they travel to Old Trafford to face a Manchester United who, except for the first half of the first game of the season, have been in total control of their matches. Mouth watering indeed.

Crystal Palace caused the shock of the evening as they beat Liverpool 2-1 with two late goals. It was Palace’s first win of the season.

Newcastle missed an open goal opportunity in the last minute of the game to equalise.

Ipswich have only themselves to blame. Totally dominant in the first half, they missed all their chances. Southampton’s first chance was in the 42nd minute, which ended in a goal.

They then completely dominated the second half for a comprehensive win.

Spurs scored early and then the game became a contest of great goalkeeping and terrible shooting.

Wolves hit the lead in their game against Derby, only to see themselves 1-2 down. They managed to equalise before half time and hit the lead early in the second half. Only for Derby to get the equaliser near the end. A great attacking game with both sides determined to score as many goals as possible.
