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.


Watford 2 – 1 Leicester City

Defending Champions Leicester City seem to have no answers to their poor domestic form. This time it’s the turn of Watford to sting them as the Hornets dished out a 2-1 loss to the Foxes. An early goal from Etienne Capoue and a brilliant one from Roberto Pereyra stunned the visitors who had a penalty goal from Riyad Mahrez. With 12 points, the Foxes are 14th in the table and more worryingly just two points above relegation zone. Watford move up to eighth with 18 points.

Everton 1 – 1 Swansea City

Swansea are still searching for their first win under Bob Bradley as a late goal from Seamus Coleman extended the Swans’ winless streak to 11 games. A first-half penalty from Gylfi Sigurdsson put them ahead but Coleman salvaged a point for the Toffees, who were very poor. Everton stay seventh in the table on 19 points while Swansea are down to the bottom.

Stoke City 0 – 1 Bournemouth

Bournemouth secured their first away win of the season when a Nathan Ake’s goal ended Stoke City’s six-match unbeaten run. The win helped them move into the top half while Stoke are down to 13th.

Tottenham 3 – 2 West Ham

A dramatic Harry Kane brace in the dying minutes of the game helped Tottenham maintain their unbeaten run in the League. Spurs stay in fifth place while the Hammers are down in 17th place – just one point above relegation zone.

Middlesbrough 0 – 1 Chelsea

Chelsea rode on a Diego Costa goal to move above Liverpool and top the League table. The hosts turned in a disciplinary performance and looked good to seal a point but for the Spaniard’s goal. The Blues could have gone into a lead early on when Pedro’s shot was brilliantly saved by Victor Valdes in the Boro goal. In the end, Costa’s strike was enough for the visitors to wrap up full points.
