Premiership round-up (14-16/10/06)

Pompey got back to winning ways with our 2-0 win over West Ham in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others...

Saturday 14/10/06
Arsenal 3-0 Watford
Arsenal strolled to a comfortable victory over Watford as Theo Walcott made an impressive full debut for the gunners. An own goal from Jordan Stewart (33) gave Arsenal the lead with Thierry Henry (43) and Emmanuel Adebayor (67) securing victory.

Aston Villa 1-1 Tottenham
Having seen Callum Davenport dismissed for a professional foul Juan Pablo Angel had the chance from the spot, however he blasted high and wide. His misery was compounded minutes later as his own goal gave Spurs the lead. Former Pompey target Gareth Barry (81) made sure Villa retained their unbeaten record with a late equaliser.

Liverpool 1-1 Blackburn
Dispute dominating for long periods Liverpool fell behind to Benni McCarthy's (17) goal. As was inevitable Craig Bellamy (64) scored his first league goal against his former side to bring Liverpool level.

Man City 0-0 Sheff Utd
The two teams played out a goalless draw, which Sheffield United will be happier with. Wasteful or poor finishing cost City three points.

Middlesbrough 2-1 Everton
Everton's unbeaten start to the season was ended as former Pompey forward Yakubu (27) opened the scoring from the penalty spot. He would see a second half penalty saved by Tim Howard before Mark Viduka (71) put Boro 2-0. Tim Cahill's (77) goal proved a mere consolation.

Reading 1-1 Chelsea
In the early evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus fixture Chelsea somewhat fortunately came away from the Madjeski with three points, ending Readings year long unbeaten home record. Fran Lampard`s free kick deflected cruelly off Ivar Ingimarsson (45) on the stroke of half time for the only goal. Chelsea's Mikel John Obi and Reading's Andre Bikey both saw red cards for second bookable offences. Chelsea also had Petr Cech carried off after only a few minutes with substitute goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini also going the same way in injury time, John terry took over in goal for the closing moments.

Wigan 1-3 Man Utd
Manchester United recovered from Leighton Baines' (5) early free kick to win the early LIVE SKY Sports match thanks to second half goals from Nemanja Vidic (62), Luis Saha (66) and a late Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (90) effort to retain the top spot.

Sunday 15/10/06
Newcastle 1-2 Bolton
Bolton came from behind to win the afternoon LIVE SKY Sports clash at St James' Park. A controversial Shola Ameobi (19) penalty gave Newcastle a half time lead, only for El Hadji Diouf (57) to equalise. Two minutes later Diouf (57) again won Bolton the game.

Monday 16/10/06
Fulham 2-1 Charlton
Two goals in two second half minutes of the LIVE SKY Sports match all but won this match for Fulham. Brian McBride (65) opened the scoring, shortly followed by Claus Jensen's (67) strike. Darren Bent (78) pulled a goal back for Charlton but that's as good as it got as their struggle continued.

Only Aston Villa remain unbeaten in the Premiership following Everton's defeat, who would have thought this? Congratulations to Martin O'Neill and Villa!

Out of all the 30+ veterans in the Premieship, we clearly have the cream of the crop.

Yes but Martin o'Neill is the muts nuts and any premiership club would love to have him, although not many would admit it.

Expecially Charlton, their plan to disgrace rivals Cystal Palace's manger Iain Dowie looks to backfire completey.

Middlesboro' can boast wins against 2 hitherto unbeaten teams (Chelski and the Toffees) yet succumbed to us so easily. Funny game football - I hope I'm laughing this week-end.
