Premier League Week 9 Review

Premier League Week 9 Review.

Our Premier League week 9 review will take a look at the best bits of the weekend, including a gatecrashed interview, a last minute winner, two super subs and an impressive record down south.

Southampton steal second…

Southampton clinched a 1-0 victory at home against a Stoke side that have been fairly impressive defensively but have failed to break into double figures in the goalscoring charts. Stoke were as resilient as ever, but Southampton kept up their winning streak that saw them brush aside Sunderland 8-0 a week earlier. Their shooting was far from clinical as they had 20 attempted shots with only 2 on target and only one goal. It was however, enough to see them climb back above Manchester City who lost 2-1 to West Ham.

Russell Brand approves of this message

West Ham managed to claim a 2-1 victory at home against a Manchester City side that have only kept three clean sheets in 13 league and cup games this season. It was a fantastic victory for Sam Allardyce whose new look team is playing some clinical counter attacking football. Sahko has been a revelation as the spearhead of the attack and he claimed his sixth goal in as many games.

Pardew and Newcastle keep fighting

Pardew was looking favourite for the chop only a couple of weeks ago, but his Newcastle team are the new comeback kings. The Magpies managed to snatch this victory from Tottenham after going one nil down from an Adebayor goal in the first half. Pardew’s job has been saved by a super sub every week. This week it was ex-Newcastle legend Shola Ameobi’s younger brother, Sammy, to deliver the super sub moment of the game. After being introduced at half time the spritely winger glided past Eric Dier before finishing with aplomb to grab the equaliser. Remy Cabella also came off the bench to provide the cross that summer signing Ayoze Perez’s met with his head to clinch the win and mark his first goal for the club.

You down with RVP?

Robin Van Persie showed what his equalising goal meant to him by stripping off his shirt in a moment of passion and running over to the jubilated United crowd. This planned celebration was delayed after he slipped and was subsequently ‘piled on’ by his United teammates. The goal came right at the death of a game that had been thoroughly entertaining for the first half and for the majority of the second. The deadlock was broken in the second half after Didier Drogba managed to sneak off the front post and glance his header past David de Gea from a well delivered set-piece. Chelsea had a couple of chances to extend their lead but de Gea was in great form and kept United within touching distance. At the other end, Thibaut Courtois was doing his best to make the evening very frustrating for RVP and Man United fans alike, but that all changed in the 94th minute. Fellaini offered his second crucial contribution in two weeks winning the header from Di Maria’s free-kick and forcing Courtois into action before Van Persie drilled home the equaliser.
