Prem round-up (30/09-02/10/06)

Prem round-up (30/09-02/10/06)

Pompey travelled to London to face Spurs, going home with arguably undeservedly nothing in their latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others...

Saturday, 30/09/06
Bolton 2-0 Liverpool
In his 750th professional game Gary Speed (30) opened the scoring before Ivan Campo (51) rounded off a good week for Bolton against a below par Liverpool side in the early LIVE SKY Sports clash.

Charlton 1-2 Arsenal
Having fallen behind to Darren Bent's (21) goal Arsenal fought their way back to claim all three points to leave Charlton bottom of the Premiership during the International break. Robin Van Persie (32) equalised for Arsenal before the Dutchman (58) scored again, this time a volley which will surely be a contender for goal of the season.

Chelsea 1-1 Aston Villa
Didier Drogba (3) gave Chelsea an early lead with his eighth goal of the season before Villa's teenage home grown talent Gabriel Agbonlahor (45) equalised on the stroked of half time to preserve their unbeaten start to the season.

Everton 1-1 Man City
The inform Andy Johnson (44) gave Everton the lead with his sixth of the season just before the interval. Having hit the woodwork through Georgios Samaras, in the fourth minute of injury Micah Richards (90) earned City a point.

Sheff Utd 2-1 Middlesbrough
Rob Hulse (35) put Sheffield United ahead before former Pompey striker Yakubu (49) made up for an earlier miss to bring Middlesbrough level. United would not be denied their first Premiership win in 12-years though, Phil Jagielka's (90) 30-yard screamer secured three points deep into injury time in the LIVE evening SKY Sports Prem Plus game.

Sunday, 01/10/06
Blackburn 2-1 Wigan
Emile Heskey (2) gave Wigan an early lead before David Bentley (45) on the stroke of half time brought Blackburn level. On loan Pompey forward Svetoslav Todorov (77) would see a penalty save from half time replacement goalkeeper Jason Brown before Benni McCarthy (81) gave Blackburn the win following an error from Chris Kirkland in the Wigan goal.

Man Utd 2-0 Newcastle
Manchester United returned to the top of the Premiership thanks to two goals fours minutes either side of half time from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (41 & 49).

West Ham 0-1 Reading
Reading recorded another win as their fine start to the season continued. Korean International Soel Ki-Hyeon (2) early goal proving the match winner against Alan Pardew's struggling West Ham

Monday, 02/10/06
Watford 3-3 Fulham
SKY Sports LIVE Monday night clash would be a cracker. Marlon King (23) gave Watford a lead that Ashley Young (45) would double seconds into the second half. Brian McBride (71) got Fulham back into the game before Heidar Helgusson (83) against his old team levelled things up. A bizarre Damien Francis (87) own goal seemed to have turned the game on it's head before Ashley Young's (89) second rescued a point when it looked like Watford would get none, having for so long looked like getting all three.

Villa have proved that Chelsea are not invincible. Bolton proved that their fortunate win over us puts Liverpool in more jeopardy away from Home. Arsenal proved they are not out of it. Man Utd proved they are right in the race this term. Everton are still proving difficult to beat. Pompey can prove that these 2 recent defeats are only a minor hiccup in our quest for a top half finish.

I wouldn't quite say Watford are on fire? Villa certianly, and Everton, still unbeaten aren't they.
