Another Premier League Saturday has quickly passed by. The headlining results of the seven matches that occurred were Stoke City’s 3-2 victory over Arsenal and Chelsea’s 2-1 loss to Newcastle.
Stoke jumped out to a three-goal advantage in the opening half coming from the tallies of Peter Crouch, Bojan and Jon Walters, but Arsenal climbed back into the game with quick scores from Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey. A red card to Callum Chambers in the 77th minute helped City stave off the Gunners.
Newcastle handed the Blues their first defeat of the season, halting Jose Mourinho’s 23-game unbeaten stretch. Papiss Cisse notched a brace the Magpies, and the outcome came down to thwarting Chelsea’s attack after Didier Drogba halved the scoreline in the 83rd minute.
Manchester City blanked Everton on Yaya Toure’s PK conversion, 1-0, much to the dismay of Toffees head man Roberto Martinez.
Hull City vs. West Brom, Tottenham vs. Crystal Palace, Liverpool vs. Sunderland all ended in 0-0 results, while Queens Park Rangers skipped out of the relegation zone with a 2-0 triumph over Burnley; Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin starred as the scorers.
