A goal keeper scoring from 92 yards, a game with 6 different goal scorers for one team and a well-contested game at The Emirates. What a cracker of a weekend it was in the English Premier League.

Manchester United have started life after Sir Alex Ferguson very poorly. They have looked a shadow of the team that claimed the title comfortably last season. Robin van Persie’s influence in the team has waned, while new signing Marouane Fellaini has failed to find his footing. Van Persie’s shooting accuracy is down to 31.8% from 46% last year and his goals per game statistics are down to 0.5 from 0.68 last year. It may be too early to write off …

It took the Gunners only 4 minutes to break Stoke City's resilience as Ramsey found the back of the net. However, Arsenal could not manage to control the game thereon. Stoke City equalised and threatened to take the lead on many occasions. This was until Mertesacker …

Ramsey shines as Özil makes a bright debut | Stats Analysis

Arsenal powered their way to the top of the league (momentarily) with a clinical performance away from home against Sunderland. An early goal by this season's leading goal scorer Olivier Giroud, from an assist provided by new signing *wait for it* Mesut Özil, laid the foundation of The Gunners' victory. A brace by Welshman Aaron Ramsey (who is the joint highest goal scorer in all competitions for Arsenal this season with 5 goals) sealed what was a well-deserved victory for …
