United takes Premier League lead

Patrice Evra scored for Manchester United as the club defeated Arsenal.

The Premier League had another action-packed weekend, as Manchester United took advantage of struggles from its fellow title challengers.

United took advantage of Arsenal's recent poor form, with a dominating victory over the North London side. The 2-1 victory was only made close with a Santi Cazorla goal in stoppage time. Both former Arsenal attacker Robin van Persie and Patrice Evra found the back of the net at Old Trafford, pulling the club one point ahead of Chelsea and two ahead of Manchester City.

Chelsea only managed a 1-1 draw at Liberty Stadium against Swansea City, as a late goal from Pablo Hernandez ensured the Welsh side shared the spoils. Manchester City failed to take advantage of the Chelsea draw, as the club only managed a point against West Ham at Upton Park. The draw helped West Ham further solidify its spot in the top-half of the table, and continued its impressive start to the season.

Wigan helped distance itself from the relegation battle, as the Latics edged out a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane against Tottenham. Ben Watson's goal in the 56th minute prevented Tottenham from taking advantage of the Arsenal loss, in order to pull itself into the thick of the Champions League race.

Everton also had an opportunity to take control in the race for fourth, but squandered it at Craven Cottage, with a draw against Fulham. After the Cottagers took the lead on a Tim Howard own goal, Marouane Fellaini put the Toffees in command during the second half. However, it wasn't enough, as Steve Sidwell scored in the 90th minute to help keep Fulham's impressive start going.

Norwich also managed to defeat Stoke City on Saturday, as the Canaries hopped the Potters in the table, with its second win of the year. Aston Villa overcame Sunderland at the Stadium of Light after a second half strike by Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Sunday matches end in draws
Both Sunday fixtures ended level at 1-1, as Liverpool was unable to take advantage of Fabricio Coloccini's red card, despite a second-half goal from Luis Suarez to rescue a point. Additionally, Queens Park Rangers managed a point against Reading to temporarily climb out of the last spot in the league.

    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
