Premiership results 9-10 September

Everton 3-0 Liverpool ( Andy Johnson*2, Tim Cahill)

Big shock for Liverpool, but it wasn’t quite unexpected, given the form Everton were in before coming into this game. Andy Johnson continued his excellent form with a brace, and Tim Cahill scored the other to inflict upon Liverpool their heaviest defeat in over 4 decades in a Merseyside derby.

Arsenal 1-1 Middlesbrough ( James Morrison, Thierry Henry)

Still no win at their new stadium for the Gunners. They had a lot of possession but nothing in terms of goals to show for it. Theirry Henry equalised from the spot after James Morrison had sent the Teesiders ahead. Jonathan Woodgate put in a classy performance in defence for Gareth Southgate’s side on debut.

Chelsea 2-1 Charlton ( Drogba, Carvalho, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink)

Chelsea produced a solid display to ease past Alan Curbishley’s side, for whom this is their worst ever start to a campaign. A early Didier Drogba goal and a header from former Porto defender Ricardo Carvalho sealed three points for the Blues. Frank Lampard missed a late penalty.

Newcastle 1-2 Fulham ( Scott Parker, Brian McBride, Carlos Bocanegra)

Fulham picked up an totally unexpected win with two goals in the last 8 minutes after Scott Parker had given his side the lead in the 54th minute. The game also saw Jimmy Bullard being stretchered off.

Portsmouth 1-0 Wigan ( Benjani Mwaruwari)

This was supposed to be an interesting match to predict, and Harry Redknapp’s side kept their unbeaten record intact with a solitary goal in the second half through the Zimbabwean.

Bolton 1-0 Watford ( Gary Speed)

An absolute moment of madness in injury time by Watford defender Danny Shittu saw a penalty being conceded by Aidy Boothroyd’s side and Gary Speed made no mistake form the spot.

Sheffield United 0-0 Blackburn Rovers

This game saw three penalties missed in the last 20 minutes, first by Lucas Neill for Rovers and then by David Unsworth and Rob Hulse for Sheffield.

Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham ( Ryan Giggs)

A early header by Ryan Giggs gave Manchester United their 4th win in as many games. Tottenham had their opportunities too and Ahmed Mido, Michael Dawson and Jermaine Defoe missed their chances.
