It was as if there wasn’t any break at all! The international break didn’t seem to affect English Premier League teams at all as the intensity and goals were the same as ever, this weekend. Bettingxpert.com look back at the actions.
Sunderland 3 – 0 Hull City
For so long, David Moyes was desperate for a win, and now he has two in two. A brace from Victor Anichebe and one from Jermain Defoe (his 150th Premier League goal) lifted Sunderland off the bottom of the table. They now are just two points from moving out of the relegation zone. Ironically, their visitors this weekend Hull City are the ones who are just above them.
Crystal Palace v Manchester City: Yaya Toure returns
If ever there is a fairy tale, then it is this! The forgotten man of Manchester City Yaya Toure was reinstated to the starting XI after receiving an apology and the midfielder responded by scoring a brace. His goals helped City defeat Crystal Palace 2-1 in a tense encounter and keep in touch with League leaders Liverpool. The Reds were not so lucky and had to endure a frustrating 0-0 stalemate at Southampton. Both these sides would keep an eye on Chelsea who will take the field on Sunday against Middlesbrough.
Man UTD v Arsenal: Giroud saves the day with a last minute goal
Jose Mourinho was minutes away from extending his dominance over Arsene Wenger. Wish football was predictable! Oliver Giroud came off the bench to link with another substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and save the blushes for the Gunners. In the end, the 1-1 result was a heartbreak for the Red Devils who were more desperate for a win than their visitors.
