Premiership round-up (09-11/09/06)

Premiership round-up (09-11/09/06)

Pompey maintained their unbeaten start to the season, with another clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Wigan at Fratton in their latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others...

Saturday 09/09/06
Arsenal 1-1 Middlesbrough
James Morrison (21) gave Middlesbrough the lead in the first half, but a second half Thierry Henry (66) penalty levelled matters. Minutes earlier Boro skipper George Boateng (63) saw red for his second bookable offence. The draw leaves Arsenal still seeking the first Premiership win at their New Emirates Stadium.

Bolton 1-0 Watford
A brave Watford performance would see them robbed of a point in injury time as Gary Speed (90) converted the late penalty to give Bolton all three points.

Chelsea 2-1 Charlton
Didier Drogba (5) gave Chelsea an early lead, only for former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (53) to net an equaliser. Ricardo Carvalho (62) won the game for Chelsea, with Frank Lampard later having a penalty saved by Scott Carson. The game would mark the debut of Ashley Cole following his move from Arsenal.

Everton 3-0 Liverpool
The first Merseyside derby of the season, LIVE on SKY Sports Prem Plus saw Everton triumph 3-0. First half goals from Tim Cahill (23) and Andy Johnson (35) would be added to by a late Johnson (90) second in injury time following an incredible error by Jose Reina in the Liverpool goal.

Man Utd 1-0 Tottenham
Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick proved too hot to handle for Paul Robinson, Ryan Giggs (9) followed up to give United the win in the LIVE evening SKY Sports Prem Plus fixture to take them above Pompey again to the top of the Premiership.

Newcastle 1-2 Fulham
Fulham came from behind to win, but would have been more concerned by the horrific injury suffered by Jimmy Bullard. The former Wigan man suffered a dislocated kneecap in a fair challenge with Scott Parker, but x-rays have revealed no major damage and he could be back within two months. Scott Parker (53) seemed to have won it for Newcastle before two late goals; the first from Brian McBride (81) the second from Carlos Bocanegra (88) gave Fulham the win.

Sheff Utd 0-0 Blackburn
The match may well have ended scoreless but it was full of incident. Sheffield United 'keeper Paddy Kenny would save Lucas Neill's (69) penalty. Not to be outdone Blackburn 'keeper Brad Friedel saved former Pompey defender David Unsworth's (75) penalty, and would then go one better, also saving another penalty, this time from Rob Hulse (85).

Sunday 10/09/06
West Ham 1-1 Aston Villa
Villa took an early lead through former West Ham youngster Liam Ridgewell (4) in the SKY Sports clash. Bobby Zamora (52) with his fifth in four games got West Ham on level terms. Carlos Tevez would make his hammers debut as a second half substitute.

Monday 11/09/06
Reading 1-0 Man City
Manchester City had Ousmane Dabo sent off (80) as Ivar Ingimarsson (23) inflicted yet more woe upon City boss Stuart Pearce as Reading earned their second home win of the season.

I'm sure these teams will recover strongly. What a mistake from Reina, it was incredible! Guess you can see what he was trying but surely he should have tipped it away for a corner...

I presume he was looking to get the ball up the other end quickly.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!
