Hull City's Shocking Upset Knocks Arsenal Off the Top of the Table

Absolutely nobody could have possibly seen this result coming. The Tigers of Hull City are officially the biggest surprise of the new Premier League season, especially after their eye-opening 2-1 victory over Arsenal, at Emirates Stadium no less. The Gunners took a 1-0 lead shortly after the half on an when Theo Walcott's fantastic run ended with the ball on the foot of Cesc Fábregas. However the Tigers roared back into the match thanks to the right foot of Deiberson Geovanni. The Brazilian's stunning strike from distance found the corner of the net and silenced the red-clad crowd. As if a draw wasn't enough for the upstart Tigers, Daniel Cousin beat William Gallas to a corner kick and put it home for the winning goal. Fuckin' awesome. By the way, only three points separate the Tigers from the top of the table. • WOOOHOOO! Chelsea's 2-0 win earlier this morning combined with the Arsenal result means that the Blues are back atop the Premier League table. Last year's second place finishers took a late first half lead on fullback Jose Bosingwa's first goal with the club before setting up Nicolas Anelka for the side's second goal against an over-matched side from Stoke City. • United gets the job done. The Red Devils weren't exactly in desperate need of a win, but if they hadn't gotten the three points versus Bolton the suicide hotlines in Manchester might have seen a bit of an uptick in activity. Once again United struggled to find the, that is until Ronaldo went down in the box to earn a penalty which he was able to convert. Rooney finally scored for the first time this season • Liverpool reigns supreme. Another Merseyside Derby, and another big win for Liverpool. The visiting side bested Everton to the tune of 2-0 thanks to a pair of goals from an awakened Fernando Torres. Original image via Flickr
