This week in the Premier League we saw loads of penalties, red cards and own goals – all in all it was a great weekend to be glued to your sofa.
Man City 4 – 1 Tottenham
Aguero scored four at the Etihad and could easily have had more.
Arsenal 2 – 2 Hull
Arsenal couldn’t beat Hull in 90 minutes (yet again) and were left to thank the lord Alexis for his ability to run around everyone.
Crystal Palace 1 – 2 Chelsea
Two red cards. Two moments of brilliance from Chelsea. Two one.
Bonus: Mourinho explains how Chelsea beat Palace.
Southampton 8 – 0 Sunderland
Southampton continue to prove everyone wrong, though their win was no doubt down to a little help from the Sunderland players. Vergini in particular seemed willing to lend a hand with this fantastic own goal.
QPR 2 – 3 Liverpool
Four goals are scored in a dramatic final 7 minutes at Loftus Road as QPR did everything they could not to beat or at least draw, including scoring two own goals.
Richard Dunne has scored 10 own goals in the Premier League, more than any player in the history of the competition.

Balotelli received a fair bit a stick from the Rangers fans for this miss at 0 – 0, and has now scored only 1 goal and provided 0 assists in his last 20 Premier League games.
Best of the rest:
This celebration from Hernanes:
Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa sits on a hot coffee:
The manager of AS Roma got a bit annoyed at the amount of photographs taken in his press conference:
And news just in – Gareth Bale is injured and is set to miss the next two games against Liverpool and Barcelona:

It’s West Brom – Man Utd tonight and United will hope that they can continue their good form at the Hawthorns, having won 7 times there and drawn once. That draw of course being Alex Ferguson’s last game in charge and an absolute thriller that ended 5 – 5. Fingers crossed…
