Premier League Highlights Final Thoughts – August 22nd 2010

August 21, 2010 | Filed Under: Blog, UK Box Update 

Six was the magic number today as both Arsenal and Chelsea won 6-0, for chelsea thats 12 goals in just two games, as for blackpool welcome to the premiership.

Arsenal 6 – 0 Blackpool

Blackpool were brought back to Earth with a resounding thud suffering an emphatic defeat at the hands of Arsenal. Theo Walcott struck a fabulous hattrick with new boy Chamakh also opening his account with a trademark header. Whilst Blackpool delivered a mauling to Wigan last week, I think we can all agree Arsenal have given Blackpool a proper introduction to Premier League football.

Birmingham 2 – 1 Blackburn

Birmingham came from a goal down to record a victory against Sam Allardyce’s Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn should have taken the lead earlier but Pedersen’s penalty was brilliantly saved by ex-Manchester United keeper Ben Foster. N’Zonzi rose well to strike the first blow minutes later, but Craig Gardner netted a brace to seal the points for the Blues.

Everton 1 – 1 Wolves

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake scored a second half equaliser for Wolves as it ended in a stalemate at Goodison park. Everton dominated proceedings in the first half and Tim Cahill rifled a shot into the roof of the net from close range on 43 minutes. After the break however, Mick Mcarthy’s side showed some fight and earned a well deserved point through a side-footed finish from Ebanks-Blake.

Wigan 0 – 6 Chelsea

Chelsea delivered yet another clinical and powerful performance to completely dismantle Roberto Martinez’s Wigan. Whilst Drogba didn’t get on the scoresheet himself, he followed up last weeks 3 goal hattrick with a hattrick of assists. Chelsea have well and truly set the pace with 2 thumping 6-0 victories on the trot – whilst Wigan have set the pace at the other end of the table. Martinez as the first manager to get the sack sounds like a good shout to me!

Stoke 1 – 2 Tottenham Hotspurs

A memorable game for many reasons, Spurs will count themselves very lucky indeed to steal the points at the Brittania Stadium. Gareth Bale opened the scoring with a fortunate rebound that smacked him in the face and went into the net. Ricardo Fuller levelled matters but Bale struck once more with a magnificent volley that has to be a contender for goal of the season already. The game ended in controversy with Stoke being denied a deserved point having battled excellently in the 2nd half – the officials ruling that a Walter’s strike had not crossed the line when replays show otherwise.

West Brom 1 – 0 Sunderland

West Brom bounced back from their opening day thrashing at Chelsea to earn a big 3 points at the expense of Sunderland. Uzbekistan born Peter Odemwingie buried a late winner for the Baggies with Sunderland offering very little to trouble West Brom’s defence. Roberto Di Mateo can sleep happy tonight, but with trips to Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool coming up, it might be the only respite he gets for a few weeks.

West Ham 1 – 3 Bolton

A Johan Elmander brace helped Bolton take all 3 points at Upton Park. But the Trotters have to thank an inspired Jussi Jaaskelainen for saving a Carlton Cole penalty and tipping a Kieron Dyer effort on to the post before Bolton eventually took the lead. When you are down at the bottom of the table, luck never seems to fall your way and Matthew Upson did give Bolton the lead with an unfortunate headed own goal. Avram Grant’s men have a long season ahead…
