Everything You Need To Know About Football This Week 27/10/14

This week we saw City crumble at West Ham, a thrilling El Clasico at the Bernabeu and a crucial draw at Old Trafford.

West Ham 2 – 1 Man City

A rampant West Ham outplayed City thanks to great work in the midfield from Alex Song.

Liverpool 0 – 0 Hull

Liverpool were held by Hull at Anfield.

Southampton 1 – 0 Stoke

Southampton continued their great run of form with a one-nil win that puts them second in the table.

Bonus: five years ago today Southampton were sitting in the relegation zone in League 1.

Sunderland 0 – 2 Arsenal

Arsenal secured a vital 3 points away from home due to more heroic work from Alexis Sanchez and more errors from a shaky Sunderland defence.

West Brom 2 – 2 Crystal Palace

It was a tale of two penalties at The Hawthorns as Jedinak converted first for Palace before Berahino scored from the spot in injury time.

The 21 year old is now 2nd in the goalscorer table for the Premier League with 7 this season.

Swansea 2 – 0 Leicester

Swansea’s Wilfried Bony and Gyfli Sigurdsson combined well throughout the game to produce two good goals for the home side.

Real Madrid 3 – 1 Barcelona

Barcelona’s attack started strong with the returning Suarez setting up Neymar for the opener, but Madrid responded well to win 3-1 with goals from Ronaldo, Pepe and Benzema.

Burnley 1 – 3 Everton

Two goals from Samuel Eto’o and one from Lukaku ensured that Premier League newbies Burnley are still without a win.

Special mention goes to Naismith for following up from Eto’o’s goal to hit the bar and then the Burnley ‘keepers head.

Tottenham 1 – 2 Newcastle

A disorganised Tottenham defence prevented them from getting any points against Newcastle. The Toon’s Sammy Ameobi scored this quick goal only 6 seconds after coming on in the second half.

Man Utd 1 – 1 Chelsea

With Costa and Falcao both out, goalscoring duties rested on Drogba and van Persie who each obliged to make it 1-1.

Bonus: Phil Dowd makes Cesc Fabregas sit down.

Best of the rest

Braga took only 8 seconds to go from clearing a shot in their box to scoring against Benfica.

Gerso Fernandes scored this cheeky lob for Moreirense.

And Manuel Fernandes did this against Spartak

Later on tonight we’ve got a thriller in the form of QPR – Aston Villa (8pm KO), then it’s Brendan Rodgers against his old club Swansea in the cup on Tuesday (8pm KO) and we’ve got the Manchester Derby at the Etihad to look forward to on Sunday. See you next week.
