Manchester City continue their winning streak
Manchester City continued their 100 per cent Premier League record with a 4-2 victory over Arsenal at Eastlands. City took the lead through a Manuel Almunia own goal and Robin Van Persie equalised for the Gunners just after the hour mark. The home side regained the lead through striker Craig Bellamy before Emmanuel Adebayor made it 3-1.
The former Gunners striker caused major controversy by running the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of the opposition fans. He is sure to get in trouble for nearly inciting a riot and also for dragging his studs along Van Persie’s face. Shaun Wright-Phillips still had time to add a fourth goal for City before Tomas Rosicky scored a consolation goal for the Gunners.
Chelsea also continued their record with a 2-1 victory at Stoke City. Stoke took the lead through defender Abdoulaye Faye before Chelsea striker Didier Drogba equalised in first half injury time. They also left it late to score the winner, Florent Malouda firing home in the 89th minute.
Champions Manchester United defeated unbeaten Tottenham 3-1 at White Hart Lane. Jermain Defoe gave Spurs the perfect start scoring after just 50 seconds and United equalised through a superb free-kick from veteran Ryan Giggs. Brazilian midfielder Anderson fired home a superb second just before half-time.
United midfielder Paul Scholes received two bookable offences and was dismissed just before the hour mark. Despite being down to ten men the Champions scored a third through Wayne Rooney in the 78th minute and collected all three points.
