Everything You Need To Know About Football This Week 24/11/14

Join us for a journey through football highlights from all over the world.

Chelsea 2 – 0 West Brom

Chelsea went one week closer to achieving invincible status with goals from Costa and Hazard.

Man City 2 – 1 Swansea

Despite conceding this goal from Swansea’s Wilfried Bony in the ninth minute, City came back with goals from Jovetic and Toure to win the game.

The Telegraph report that City are likely to fall into a 3rd seed position in the Champions League if they fail to beat Bayern Munich at the Etihad on Tuesday.

Newcastle 1 – 0 QPR

Newcastle made it five wins in a row with a goal from Sissoko. Unfortunately the game was marred due to another injury to Ryan Taylor – though thankfully early reports suggest he could return after six weeks.

Stoke 1 – 2 Burnley

A Danny Ings double secured Burnley the three points. Stoke’s form is a bit of a mystery this season – the Potters have beaten both Tottenham and Man City away but lost to Leicester, Burnley and Villa at home.

Arsenal 1 – 2 Man United

Arsenal failed to capitalise on a good first 45 minutes against United. The Gunners conceded first to a Gibbs own goal and then to a Rooney chip from a swift United counter-attack. The only consolation for Arsenal was this late goal from the returning Giroud.

Having worked so hard all game Rooney can just about be forgiven for forgetting that Arsenal had scored.

Crystal Palace 3 – 1 Liverpool

Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak scored the goal of the game with this free-kick.

Hull 1 – 2 Tottenham

Hull’s former Tottenham man Jake Livermore opened the scoring before teammate Ramirez was sent off for a stupid foul. The red card ultimately changed the game with Spurs scoring two late goals thanks to good work from Eriksen

Best of the Rest

Raphaël Guerreiro scored against Rens after a slick passing move.

Messi scored a hat-trick to become La Liga’s top scorer of all time with 253 goals.

Hulk scored a volley with his right-foot after his left-footed free-kick hit the wall.

It took 4 HSV players and a whole lot of luck to score against Bremen.

Russell Martin scored a screamer in Norwich’s 3 – 3 thriller with Brighton.

Ajax’s Ricardo Kishna pulled off an incredible nutmeg.

Goal of the week came from a surprising source: the Polish under-13 league.
