Premiership Wrap Up - Tottenham's Kranjcar nabs 3-0 win over Manchester City

The Premiership's double week was fantastic, causing some upsets and switches, but here are the biggest results.

A match with probably the two biggest challengers for fourth, Tottenham prove their solidity while revealing Manchester City's cracks with a fantastic 3-0 victory. Kranjcar scored the two most valuable goals; the first in the 37th minute (followed by Defoe's goal), and the third in the 90th, putting the killer nail in Manchester City's coffin.

Burnley continue their fantastic results with a draw against Arsenal, and although both teams played well, the draw seemed the right result. At the end of the match, Arsene Wenger (Arsenal manager) complained about the pitch and other conditions of Burnley's Turf Moor. Arsenal show their inconsistency with the injuries the squad has, and Burnley prove that they can stay in the Premiership.

Manchester United had no trouble with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford, a 3-0 victory lets them stay right next to table leaders Chelsea. But much of the conversation came about the fact that Wolverhampton sent what could be described as a 2nd or 3rd string team out on the field. After beating Tottenham, many thought Wolves would try to upset the Red Devils but Mick McCarthy sent an entirely different team up to Manchester, upsetting many traveling fans.

The rest of the results are:

Liverpool 2-1 Wigan
Chelsea 2-1 Portsmouth
Bolton 3-1 West Ham United
Birmingham 2-1 Blackburn Rovers
Sunderland 0-2 Aston Villa
Hull City 3-2 Everton

What do you think of these Premiership results? Comment below!


  1. City really lay down and let Spurs dominate them. Can't see them crashing the Champion League positions with performances like that, or Hughes in charge. I'm betting the top 4 remains unchanged from last year, although millions of fans don't get the chance!

  2. Yes, I agree with you Thomas, City are letting us all down, they had a great start but now we see their inconsistency. But I think that over the January transfer window they could strengthen the squad and put a real challenge for fourth in.

    Thx for the comment!
