Chelsea center back Kurt Zouma went down in a heap after going up for this header and coming down with knee bent the wrong way. He immediately (and audibly) began screaming, and was stretchered off the pitch.
Liverpool fans planned and executed a 77th minute walkout from today’s game against Sunderland to protest ticket prices getting increases up to £77, and apparently, their team decided to join them in protest, so they laid down and let Sunderland of all teams roar back and tie them 2-2.
Leicester City smashed Liverpool 2-0 today on the strength of a Jamie Vardy wonder goal, and a much less spectacular but almost as vital strike by Vardy 11 minutes later. Leicester City’s attack was absolutely humming—before the second goal came a Barcelona-esque sequence that should’ve resulted in a penalty for the…
Man City keeper Joe Hart kept his side even with West Ham United with a brilliant save of a Dimitry Payet free kick that brought anguish to the supporters at Upton Park—especially Russell Brand, in attendance with pal Noel Gallagher. Depending on whether you think Brand is an asshole or if you think he’s an asshole…
Is this the goal of the season? It might be, as Dele Alli scored an absolutely incredible golazo that has us searching for words.
After Everton took a 3-2 lead over Chelsea in the 90th minute, it looked like the Toffees had their first win at Stamford Bridge since 1994. But it wasn’t to be, as (an offside) John Terry redeemed his earlier own goal and scored in what can only be described as the stoppage time of stoppage time. It had to end this…
After a John Terry own goal gave Everton a 1-0 lead at Stamford Bridge, the Toffees scored one for themselves on a terrific half-volley from Kevin Mirallas off a, perhaps, sub-optimal cross by Leighton Baines. No matter; it only allowed Mirallas the opportunity to show up marvelous control.
Southampton took an early 1-0 lead on West Brom with a fifth-minute free kick from James Ward-Prowse that Boaz Myhill found absolutely unstoppable.
Southampton took a 1-0 lead on Arsenal in tonight’s late EPL match thanks to a hammer strike from Cuco Martina, who beat Petr Cech with this stunner that elicited the proper response from Andrés Cantor:
Everton downed Newcastle today 1-0 thanks to a 93rd-minute long-range header by Tom Cleverley that proved to be the final touch of the match.
Liverpool beat Leicester City 1-0 at Anfield today, holding the league’s most surprising team scoreless for the first time all season. But it should have been a 2-0 victory, as a late open goal break somehow fell apart when Christian Benteke couldn’t find a net left vacant by Kasper Schmeichel. Schmeichel had gone…
So Chelsea fans, do you want the bad news, the awful news, or the terrible news first?
We’d be up to the same were we Sunderland supporters.
Not content to let Callum Wilson have all the glory, AFC Bournemouth’s Matt Ritchie delivered this mind-altering strike to put his side up 2-0 against a hapless Sunderland side today. We feel pretty confident that this will stand up as one of the Premiership season’s best goals.
Wow! Christian Benteke almost made today’s Manchester United-Liverpool match competitive! He certainly gave Old Trafford one of its best highlights in years, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Red Devils, who took a 3-1 victory.
We noted here that AFC Bournemouth had the potential to be one of the Premiership’s most exciting clubs this season, and the Cherries haven’t let us down—with Callum Wilson’s acrobatic overhead kick putting his side up 1-0 in the first half today against Leicester City.
We don’t blame you, kid. Nobody wants to shake a referee’s hand.
Philippe Coutinho’s rocket from outside the box proved to be the deciding goal in today’s 1-0 Liverpool win over Stoke, and is more likely than not to hold up as the Premiership’s golazo of the opening week.
