Wigan 0 Man Utd 5

Wayne Rooney scored his 100th United goal and Michael Owen got his first as they bounced back from defeat at Burnley.

Rooney headed in Antonio Valencia’s cross , Hugo Rodallega going close to a leveller before slick passing put in Dimitar Berbatov in .

Rooney’s shot deflected off Mario Melchiot inside Kirkland’s near post , and Nani set up Owen before adding the fifth with a free-kick .

 

Arsenal 4 Portsmouth 1

Abou Diaby hit a double as Arsenal maintained their winning start to the season with another big victory.

Eduardo’s cutback picked out the run of Diaby to smash in the opener  and he added a second from close range after Emmanuel Eboue’s pass .

Younes Kaboul pulled one back with a header , but William Gallas deflected in a free-kick and sub Aaron Ramsey wrapped up the rout .

Birmingham 0 Stoke 0

Birmingham and Stoke played a goalless draw at St Andrews as both sides struggled to create chances.

Blues defender Franck Queudrue’s long-range drive was saved by Thomas Sorensen in the only first-half chance.

The Potters piled on the pressure in the second half but Ricardo Fuller hit a weak shot, while Blues sub Sebastian Larsson’s free-kick picked out Garry O’Connor but Sorensen saved again.

Hull 1 Bolton 0

Kamel Ghilas scored his first goal for Hull city as they ended their long wait for a first home victory in 2009.

Elmander missed a glorious chance to put Bolton ahead as he blazed wide before sub Jozy Altidore cleverly played in Ghilas, who calmly tucked the ball into the net for the Tigers .

Altidore rolled wide and Ghilas stuck the bar, while Boaz Myhill made a fantastic double save as the hosts held on.

Man City 1 Wolves 0

Emmanuel Adebayor smashed in his second goal of the season as Manchester City kept up their impressive start.

The striker latched on to Carlos Tevez’s pass and fired in at the near post for the opener .

City missed many opportunities to add to the score with Robinho going close on four occasions and Adebayor blazing over, while Shay Given superbly saved from Wovles’ Matthew Jarvis.

Sunderland 2 Blackburn 1

Kenwyne Jones’ double earned Sunderland a comeback victory.

Blackburn went in front through Gael Givet’s 20-yard drive after Steven Nzonzi’s half-cleared corner  but Steed Malbranque played in Jones .

Jones added a powerful header from Lee Cattermole’s cross and Nzonzi had a goal disallowed for offside against Chris Samba, who later hit the bar, and Nicola Kalinic missed a late open goal

Fulham 0 Chelsea 2

Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka combined to ensure Chelsea maintained their perfect start to the season.

Clinton Dempsey fired over for Fulham before Drogba was played in by Anelka and he calmly slotted the ball home to give the Blues the lead .

The hosts struggled to threaten and Drogba slid the ball into the path of the onrushing Anelka, who rounded the keeper to wrap up the victory .

Carlo Ancelotti insists he will keep on tinkering with his Chelsea squad after watching them despatch west London neighbours Fulham 2-0 with ease.

Chelsea made four changes from the side that defeated Sunderland, including leaving Michael Essien on the bench.

He said: “It was a good line-up. Essien has played all the games, so I wanted to give him a rest. He’ll play the next game. We have to follow this line.”
