England: Premier League Weekend Review, Reports & Analyses

Liverpool defeated champions Chelsea to maintain the Reds' revival, Arsenal slumped at home against Newcastle United while Manchester United left it typically late to claim the spoils versus Wolverhampton Wanderers. Manchester City returned to winning ways courtesy of Mario Balotelli, who had a mixed outing at West Bromwich Albion. Tottenham Hotspur endured a European hangover after they were beaten 4-2 by Bolton Wanderers. There was controversy at the Stadium of Light as Stoke City were beaten 2-0 by Sunderland courtesy of an Asamoah Gyan double. West Ham United looked set to claim just their second win of the season only for the club to relinquish a two-goal advantage at Birmingham City. Blackpool played out a cracking game with Everton that ended in a 2-2 draw. Fulham left it mighty late to ensure they avoided a third loss of the campaign as Brede Hangeland headed in deep into second-half injury-time. Lastly, Blackburn Rovers secured a much-needed win to lift the club out of the bottom three. Sam Allardyce's men overcame Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park for their first victory in five matches.
