Newcastle United Vs. Stoke City, 2011 Premier League: Magpies Earn 3-1 Win

Winning at the Britannia Stadium is difficult. It's difficult for Stoke City because they're not actually very good, and it's difficult for the visiting team because Stoke generally refuses to play football, instead indulging in how I imagine Calvinball would look if Calvin was about three times as tall and a thirtieth as bright and Hobbes was even more prone to violent assault. Yes, that metaphor is more strained than the muscles in Rory Delap's neck as he bombs throw-ins towards the opposition box. You'll live.

Anyway, Newcastle United got off to the perfect start, ignoring the whole 'let's not play football' routine to go ahead inside twelve minutes through the figure of Demba Ba, who latched onto Gabriel Obertan's cross to head past Asmir Begovic to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. They'd make it two before the half was up, with Ba at the end of another cross - this time delivered by Leon Best.

Stoke nearly got back into the game thanks to Mike Dean, who bizarrely called a mild tussle between Ba and Peter Crouch a Stoke penalty, but even though Jonathan Walters converted it (a very well-taken penalty, actually) Dean made up for his mistake by deciding that Leon Best falling over in the opposite box was also worth a spot kick, and Ba, on a hat trick, stepped up to make it three*.

*It was a perfect hat trick, actually, one header, one right footed shot and one left footed.

The brief renaissance Stoke had enjoyed after cutting Newcastle's lead in half was destroyed by Ba's third goal, and the game petered out in fairly tame fashion. Tame for Stoke, I mean. Newcastle go to third with the 3-1 win.

Tottenham Hotspur Vs. Queens Park Rangers, 2011 Premier League: Spurs Cruise To 3-1 Win

Tottenham Hotspur put in an inspired display to brush aside Queens Park Rangers at White Hart Lane, coming away with a 3-1 victory that despite an attempted fightback by the visitors in the second half was never really in doubt. In truth, the scoreline could have been far higher if not for the heroics of Paddy Kenny in the QPR net - by the time Gareth Bale found the net for the opening goal (a neat finish after being played through on the left by Aaron Lennon) the hosts should probably have already been at least a goal to the good, and he was absolutely brilliant in the second half.

By the time the second half had rolled around, however, Tottenham were up 2-0, with Rafael van der Vaart in good position to retrieve Ledley King's deflected shot and steer an effort past the wrong-footed Kenny. QPR were a changed team in the second half, with Neil Warnock using his remaining two substitutes - Fitz Hall had to be withdrawn early due to injury - at the break, removing Adel Taarabt and Shaun Derry for Jay Boothroyd and Jamie Mackie.

The changes made a bit of a difference, and Boothroyd pulled a goal back following a corner kick, but that only seemed to galvanise Spurs and they went on the attack again, drawing a series of fine saves from Kenny before Bale put the game away after a lovely passing exchange with Lennon on the edge of the box. All that was left to do was to see it out, and they did, moving into fifth place with an emphatic display.

English Premier League 2011, Week 10: Important Wins For Liverpool, Manchester City

Manchester City Vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Manchester City earned a 3-1 win to keep themselves at the top of the Premier League, overcoming a late hurdle that saw Vincent Kompany shown a straight red card and Stephen Hunt net a penalty. The hosts weren't particularly impressive in a first half that ended up 0-0, but Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolarov struck after halftime before that brief Wolves resurgence. Adam Johnson's brilliant injury-time strike wrapped things up, and City remain five points clear.

Norwich City Vs. Blackburn Rovers

Norwich looked poised to hand Blackburn Rovers a rare away win at Carrow Road. The visitors went ahead 1-0 at the stroke of halftime through Junior Hoillet, who unleashed a lovely shot past John Ruddy in first half injury time to put Blackburn on the front foot. Steve Morrison briefly drew the hosts level but quick goals by Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Christopher Samba put them in a 3-1 hole. Norwich looked lost even after Bradley Johnson snatched one back, but Steven Nzoni's last minute handball allowed substitute Grant Holt a crack at goal from 12 yards. With no time left, he took it to earn Norwich a 3-3 draw.

Sunderland Vs. Aston Villa

A last-minute header by Stephane Sessegnon earned Sunderland a 2-2 draw and a point at the Stadium of Light, cancelling out a late Richard Dunne header that looked set to be the winner. Earlier, Stiliyan Petrov had opened the scoring with an absolute rocket from long range, but a lovely piece of combination play by Sessegnon and Connor Wickham saw the latter level the scores in the first half. Villa probably didn't deserve the win that Dunne looked set to give them, and it was probably justice that the impressive Sessegnon got his head onto the end of Sebastian Larsson's free kick with a minute to go.

Swansea City Vs. Bolton Wanderers

Bolton had had a rough start to the season, but that was mostly excused thanks to their ridiculously difficult schedule. They have no excuses now - they've just been absolutely spanked by a newly promoted team, losing 3-1 to Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. At no point did Bolton look like a match for the Swans, but things got really bad after halftime, when Ricardo Gardner was shown his second yellow card in five minutes to give the hosts a man advantage and - four goals later, including a rare own goal-actual goal brace by Danny Graham, the game.

Wigan Athletic Vs. Fulham

Stop me if you've heard this before - Wigan Athletic played better football but completely failed to take advantage of their many chances to win the game at the DW Stadium before their visitors scored twice with their two chances. Yep, it's every Wigan match ever. Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele were the goalscorers, and Fulham won 2-0.

West Bromwich Albion vs. Liverpool

Roy Hodgson may have gotten his revenge over Kenny Dalglish when Liverpool met West Bromwich Albion last season, but Dalglish got his today with an easy 2-0 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns (will the cycle of revenge never cease?!). Anyway, an early penalty was converted by Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll added a second with a neat finish just before halftime. And that was that.

Manchester United Vs. Everton, 2011 Premier League: United Earn Narrow Victory

Manchester United edged out a 1-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park, temporarily closing the gap on league leaders Manchester City thanks to a first-half goal by Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez (hint to defenders: Don't leave Chicharito unmarked! You're welcome!). With the hosts on the back foot, United could have done far more to secure a win, but inexplicably took their foot off the gas and let the Toffees get back into the match.

David de Gea was pretty good (a save against Jack Rodwell stood out), but had a free kick from Leighton Baines been a little bit lower Everton would have come away with a draw. Instead, the left back's effort rattled the crossbar, and Everton's best chance had gone. They still had the entire second half with which to get a point, and ended up outshooting United 17-8. But they couldn't break through even with six minutes of stoppage time, thanks mostly to the heroics of de Gea. As far as United are concerned, unimpressive wins are still wins, and they're keeping pressure on City.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Full Time, Gunners Win Thriller 5-3

If you believe all of the papers you will inevitably read on Monday morning, Chelsea are now completely out of the title race while Arsenal are heavy favorites for fourth place. Okay, so the hyperbole train probably shouldn't get running in Week 10, but this was an interesting result nonetheless. Chelsea are now in a bad run of form and Arsenal are on the rise following a 5-3 Gunners win at Stamford Bridge.

Both teams defended poorly, but Chelsea defended even more poorly, as the score indicates. Theo Walcott was magnificent on the night, scoring a fantastic goal and creating a couple more that Arsenal couldn't finish off. The defending on both sides was bad enough that both teams could have easily scored three more goals.

Chelsea were on top early in both possession in chances, and scored the opener in the 14th minute. Frank Lampard scored it with a header, nodding in a cross by Juan Mata, who was Chelsea's best player on the night. Per Mertesacker got his feet tangled and let Lampard by him, just the first of many questionable moments for him and the rest of the Arsenal defense.

Robin van Persie scored a tap-in in the 36th, set up by Aaron Ramsey and Gervinho, but Chelsea had the lead back before long. Terry, who let Ramsey's through ball into the box for Arsenal's goal go right by him, quickly redeemed himself by scoring on a corner kick just before halftime, sending Chelsea into the locker room up 2-1.

Things got a little nuts right after halftime, with Arsenal quickly turning the game on its head. Andre Santos scored in the 49th minute with both Jose Bosingwa and Daniel Sturridge nowhere to be found, then Theo Walcott scored an absolutely incredible goal in the 55th, falling down with the ball at his feet, then getting up and powering through four defenders before blasting a shot past Petr Cech.

Juan Mata, Chelsea's man of the match, would find an absolutely stunning equalizer in the 80th minute, placing a fantastic shot into the top corner from 25 yards out. It felt like the equalizer, but Chelsea would throw the game away late.

In the 85th minute, Florent Malouda and John Terry made unthinkable errors to gift Arsenal the winner. Malouda played a terrible back pass to Terry with van Persie close by, but it appeared that the Blues' captain would be able to clear the ball. Instead, he flipped and fell flat on his face, leaving van Persie one-on-one with Cech with no Chelsea defender for 50 yards. He won that one-on-one battle and scored his second of the match, putting Arsenal up for good.

With Chelsea pressing forward, Arsenal were able to get numbers on the counter in stoppage time and added another for good measure. Mikel Arteta provided the assist to van Persie in a four-on-two, and the Dutchman finished to give himself a hat trick and his team an insurance goal, sealing a 5-3 victory.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: John Terry Falls, Gifting Robin Van Persie A Brace

Robin van Persie now has two goals, and Arsenal are up 4-3 after 85 minutes. RVP has bailed out his team over and over again with goals that he made out of nothing this season, but both of his strikes today were absolute gifts. Both had a lot to do with errors by John Terry, though this one was a lot more ridiculous than the last one.

The goal wasn't all Terry's fault; Florent Malouda played an absolutely horrendous back pass to him while RVP was attached to his hip. However, Terry failed to get the ball back to Petr Cech to clear, instead falling flat on his face (literally), allowing van Persie to carry the ball towards the box with no marker for 50 yards. Cech couldn't come up with the one-on-one stop, and Arsenal now lead. Because Terry fell down.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Juan Mata Equalizes With Stunning Goal

After a slew of substitutions, this match has gotten incredibly interesting. Chelsea have withdrawn John Obi Mikel and Ramires for Romelu Lukaku and Raul Meireles, while Arsenal have brought on Tomas Rosicky to solidify their midfield, withdrawing their best player on the night, Theo Walcott. Arsene Wenger is likely now regretting that change, as he needs Walcott on the pitch again. Chelsea have equalized the match at 3-3, thanks to a stunner by Juan Mata.

Lukaku likely committed a foul on the move, backing into and knocking down Andre Santos, but there's no taking away from Mata's finish. With Santos down on the ground, Meireles picked up the ball on the right side and put a great pass into the middle for Mata. Arsenal closed him down, but the Spaniard was still able to rip a jaw-dropping left-footed shot into the top corner, leveling the match through 81 minutes.

Scoring done? Don't count on it.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Theo Walcott Goal Has Gunners Up 3-2

Everyone that thought David Luiz was Chelsea's biggest problem in terms of defending now has their foot in their mouth. The back four of John Terry, Branoslav Ivanovic, Jose Bosingwa and Ashley Cole is in absolute shambles. Arsenal have turned this game on its head with two goals in seven minutes, with Theo Walcott putting the Gunners ahead 3-2 in the 56th minute. It was a brilliant individual effort by Walcott, but the defending was atrocious.

With the ball at his feet 30 yards from goal, Walcott went down. Whether he was fouled or he just slipped isn't entirely clear, but in any event, no one on Chelsea cleared the ball away. Walcott got up, picked up the ball again, and then ran through a cluster of four Chelsea defenders surrounding him before hitting a piledriver past Petr Cech for the goal. It was a fantastic goal by Walcott, but the defending was downright embarrassing.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Andre Santos Equalizes

Andre Santos - yes, that Andre Santos - has scored an equalizer for Arsenal. He's defended very poorly throughout his short Arsenal career and this game in particular, while he's been a bit disappointing getting forward as well, but he's finally shown off the attacking ability that made him an appealing purchase with a goal.

Alex Song provided the assist with a great ball out wide from a clustered center, and while Santos' run and finish were impressive, the defending was downright shambolic. Jose Bosingwa didn't look like he had any idea it was possible for an Arsenal attack to come down the left, while Daniel Sturridge reacted to Santos taking off about two seconds too late. He was completely free as he picked up the ball and fired past Cech, locking up the match at 2-2.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Halftime, Chelsea Ahead 2-1

Chelsea lead Arsenal by a score of 2-1 at halftime of their huge Premier League clash, but in all honesty, both teams should have a couple more. The defending in this match has been incredibly poor, with Chelsea having a goal disallowed for an unnecessary offside and Arsenal missing a couple of sitters. Chelsea also had a couple of instances in the opening five minutes where they had yards of room to get crosses in, but couldn't convert. Something like 3-2 or 4-3 would be more fitting based on the way this one has gone.

The Blues got the opener in the 15th minute, just after Gervinho and Robin van Persie had missed easy chances set up by Theo Walcott. Frank Lampard was the scorer, heading in a great cross by Juan Mata as Per Mertesacker lost his footing, and as a result, completely lost Lampard.

Robin van Persie redeemed himself with a goal later in the half, and Chelsea's defense was terrible on the sequence. Aaron Ramsey set up the chance with a ball into the box, which Gervinho laid off for van Persie to tap into the back of the net.

But Chelsea would take a deserved lead in first half stoppage time, with John Terry providing the finish. Once again, Arsenal's poor set piece marking was their undoing, as Terry was left to put in an easy finish from six yards out on a corner kick to give his team a 2-1 lead.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Robin Van Persie Scores, Levels

Arsenal haven't defended well and haven't been able to keep the ball against Chelsea, but they've been able to create plenty of scoring chances. After a couple of missed sitters, they've finally been able to finish one off, with Robin van Persie providing the finish. RVP has been immense for Arsenal all year and has bailed them out of tight situations, but he wasn't the story here. Van Persie simply provided the tap in, with Aaron Ramsey and Gervinho creating the goal.

Chelsea's defense has looked a bit out of sorts all season and this chance was no exception. Cole was somehow five yards behind the rest of his defense, playing everyone completely onside, while Terry watched a through ball to Gervinho go right past him. Branoslav Ivanovic stood still as well as Gervinho ran onto the ball in the box and laid it off for Van Persie, who tapped it in for the equalizer.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Frank Lampard Goal Has Blues On Top

In case you were unaware, Juan Mata was a really good buy for Chelsea. He's been easily their most creative player all season, and once again, he's shown off the quality that was missing from the Blues prior to his arrival. He's the man who set up a goal for Chelsea in the 15th minute, putting them deservedly up on Arsenal. Frank Lampard finished, but Mata's assist was the real highlight.

Arsenal's defense has looked in shambles throughout this match so far, and they finally had to pay for it. This time it was Per Mertesacker who was the most guilty party, as the German international completely lost Lampard. The way he stumbled around, it appeared to be his first day with the new feet. Mata put in a cross, Lampard hit a header, 1-0, easy as you like.

The Gunners have had chances of their own, but the finishing hasn't been there. The way both defenses are playing, this game has a few more goals in it.

Everton Vs. Manchester United Live, 2011 Premier League: 'Chicharito' Goal Has Red Devils Up Early

If you didn't know, 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez is really, really good at becoming completely unmarked, then tapping in easy finishes. It's like what Michael Owen did for a living before he got old and average at football. Manchester United lead Everton 1-0 after 18 minutes of play at Goodison Park, thanks to a finish by the little pea, and it's going to take some luck (read: Johnny Evans screwing up) for Everton to get back into this one.

Danny Welbeck, who is playing wide left instead of as a forward, provided the assist with a fantastic cross. From the left flank, he floated the ball up over a couple of Everton defenders towards the back post, where there was no one in front of Chicharito. The ball fell right to his feet and he poked it in; the only way it could have been more Chicharito-y of a goal is if he scored it with his rear end.

Chelsea Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 Premier League: Lineups

It's always a nice, big spectacle when Chelsea play Arsenal, and there's always a lot to play for, but both teams have very specific concerns in this match. Chelsea will be looking to prove their title credentials with a win after last week's loss to Queens Park Rangers, while Arsenal are out to prove that they're not the sixth wheel in the Sky Six and on the outside looking into fourth place. Arsenal are looking closer to healthy than they have in a long time, while Jose Bosingwa starts for Chelsea after serving his red card suspension in mid-week. Here are the lineups.

Chelsea Lineup (4-3-3): Cech; Cole, Terry, Ivanovic, Bosingwa; Mikel, Ramires, Lampard; Mata, Sturridge, Torres

Arsenal Lineup (4-3-3): Szczesny; Andre Santos, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Djourou; Song, Ramsey, Arteta; Gervinho, Van Persie, Walcott

Everton Vs. Manchester United Live, 2011 Premier League: Lineups

Everton and Manchester United kick off the week of action in the Premier League, and neither one of their lineups is exactly conventional. United are without a natural right back again as they start all of Nemanja Vidic, Phil Jones and Johnny Evans. Evans was sent off against Manchester City, but served his ban mid-week. Everton are playing someone out of position as well, starting three defensive midfielders who are capable of playing central defense with no Sylvain Distin. I think that means Johnny Heitinga plays in the back, but it's a crap shoot. Here are the lineups.

Everton Starting Lineup (4-5-1): Howard; Baines, Jagielka, Heitinga, Hibbert; Bilyaletdinov, Fellaini, Rodwell, Coleman, Osman; Saha

Manchester United Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Evra, Vidic, Jones, Evans; Fletcher, Cleverley; Welbeck, Rooney, Park; Hernandez
