Manchester United yet again failed to win a home game by drawing against Southampton 1-1 who played with a never give up attitude and got a goal in the 89th minutes when Lovren‘s header hit in between Adam Lallana‘s legs right in front of De Gea. Chelsea beat Cardiff 4-1 with their equaliser being the most controversial when Samuel Eto’o kicked the ball from Marshall when he was bouncing it on the ground. Liverpool drew 2-2 against a resiliant Newcastle who played with 10 men for over 50 minutes and Dummett scoring his first Newcastle goal in his second Premier League game for the club after he came on as a substitute to make sure Newcastle had 4 men at the back, Gerrard scored his 100th Premier League goal from the spot. Manchester City beat West Ham 1-3 with Vaz Te‘s brilliant over-head kick counting for nothing because of an Aguero brace and a David Silva goal. Swansea beat Sunderland 4-0 on Gus Poyat’s first game as Sunderland manager and looks to have a really tough job on his hands. Everton beat Hull 2-1 with Barry being a part of all the controversy having touched the ball to go in for the first goal when he was offside and then potentially could have been sent off twice for two horrific tackles in the first-half. Stoke held West Brom to a 0-0 draw with West Brom having the better of chances and a potential penalty claim when Charlie Adam stood on Mulumbu‘s heel.
