Premiership round-up (26-28/08/06)

Premiership round-up (26-28/08/06)

Pompey play Middlesbrough on Monday night, in the LIVE SKY Sports clash, but how did the others perform this weekend…

Saturday 26/08/06
Charlton 2-0 Bolton
Herman Hreidarsson (28) was dismissed for Charlton before Scott Carson would save an El Hadji Diouf penalty to deny Bolton the lead. Ten men Charlton went a head through Darren Bent's (65) penalty, before Kevin Davies also saw red levelling it at 10 men apiece. Victory was secured with another Darren Bent (85) goal late on.

Fulham 1-0 Sheff Utd
Jimmy Bullard's (40) second goal in as many game for his new side would be enough for Fulham to claim their first win of the season.

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham
The lunchtime SKY Prem Plus game saw West Ham's long run of over 40 years without a league win on Merseyside continue despite Bobby Zamora (12) giving the hammers the lead. Two goals in three minutes at the end of the first half from Daniel Agger (42) and Peter Crouch (45) gave Liverpool all three points.

Man City 1-0 Arsenal
A clumsy Justin Hoyte foul gave Joey Barton (41) the chance that won the match for City from the penalty spot in the early evening SKY Prem Plus match.

Tottenham 0-2 Everton
Despite Kevin Kilbane (33) being sent off in the first half ten man Everton were able to win at White Hart Lane for the first time in the league for 20 years. A Calum Davenport (53) own goal and an Andy Johnson (66) effort enough for the toffees.

Watford 1-2 Man Utd
Mikael Silvestre (12) gave Manchester United the lead, only for Damien Francis (34) to pull the hosts level before half time. Ryan Giggs (52) would be the match winner. United remain top of the Premiership during the International break as a result.

Wigan 1-0 Reading
Reading lost for the second successive game as Wigan recorded their first three point of the season through Emile Heskey's (38) first goal for the club.

Sunday, 27 August 2006
Aston Villa 2-0 Newcastle
Two first half goals from Luke Moore (3) and Juan Pablo Angel (38) were enough for Villa to maintain their unbeaten start to the season with another win.

Blackburn 0-2 Chelsea
The Champions bounced back from their midweek defeat with a comfortable win in the LIVE SKY Sports clash on Sunday afternoon. A Frank Lampard (49) penalty and Didier Drogba's (80) minute strike getting Chelsea back on track against a struggling Blackburn side.

Early days yet but all in all the results could have been worse for us. I think a draw at the riverside would be fine a scoring draw with benjani getting the goal would be even better, but a win would be great

Lets hope we can get another one of those lovely clean sheets the boys keep supplying us with. I sleep much easier on them.

A 1 goal loss will see us at 6th, a draw and we will maintain 5th, a win and we will be back to 2nd. Are we better than Arsenal going by the last 2 games played at the City of Manchester ?

Hehe, no! The City/Arsenal highlights showed that depsite their loss, they still barraged the City goal and were seemingly a wee it unlucky not to draw or win it. Still, plenty of encouraging signs for us at this stage of play.
