It was Bournemouth’s greatest win in their history – a 1-0 win this afternoon at Stamford Bridge through an 82nd goal from Glenn Murray who had been on the field only two minutes – and that will only put extra pressure on Newcastle and Steve McClaren to pick up something from our home game against Liverpool tomorrow.
After our rather lucky win at Bournemouth, the south coast side have gained 4 points on us with a sterling 3-3 home draw last week when they came back against Everton from 2-0 down to get the equalizer deep into stoppage time – a full eight minutes into stoppage time
And today an organised and good defensive display from Bournemouth frustrated Jose Mourinho’s side and the late goal got them all 3 points.
Eddie Howe – the best win of his career – 1-0 at Stamford Bridge
It takes Bournemouth up to 17th place and out of the relegation zone on 13 points – 3 points above Newcastle who also have a worse goal difference and remain second bottom of the league.
Amazingly the reigning Premier League Champions have lost 8 of their first 15 league games this season.
Aston Villa got a good draw at Southampton 1-1 – after being 1-0 up through a goal from Lescott just before half time, but Romeu equalised after 72 minutes.
Sunderland lost 3-1 at Arsenal but put in another strong organized performance and Arsenal’s third goal came in stoppage time and manager Arsene Wenger actually ran a bit down the touchline – he was so relieved.
Norwich lost 2-0 at Watford who now move up to 9th place on 22 points after a great start to the season and Swansea lost again – this time 3-0 at home to Leicester City who go top of the league on 32 points.
But Jamie Vardy’s record scoring streak ended today although he was clean through in the first half at the Liberty stadium but missed the chance.
Jamie’s record is scoring in 11 consecutive Premier League games.
In the early game Stoke completely outplayed Manchester City, especially in the first half, and won the game 2-0 but they had chances in the first half where they could have made the score look even more embarrassing to the best side money can buy.
The thing that’s worrying to Newcastle is the other sides fighting relegation are playing some good organized football and the players are giving 100% and they are in contention in their games – which is unlike Newcastle.
We’ve been blown away in the last two games and were so lucky to win at Bournemouth.
So there have been some upsets today in the Premier League.
Let’s hope there’s an upset in the only game tomorrow – Newcastle vs Liverpool – we need an upset – we need points – we need something.
