Villa stops Liverpool's home run

Tuesday, 25th August 2009 1:48pm
Aston Villa beat Liverpool to stop Liverpool's run of 31 matches unbeaten league matches at home.

Last season the Anfield based outfit finished the season without losing a single league match and the team last lost a league match against in December 2007 in a 1-nil loss to Manchester United.

Also last season Liverpool lost just two matches - away to Tottenham Hotspurs and Middlesbrough but this season that number has already been reached in round 3.

The win was Aston Villa's first of the season although it was also the team's second match of the season.

Spurs and Chelsea remain the top two teams on the ladder after wins against Hull and Fulham respectively over the weekend.

Its early in the season but in the relegation zone there is winless Bolton, Portsmouth and an inferior goal difference means Everton anchor the ladder.

Also winless at this stage is Bolton and their next match is home against Liverpool.

Goals galore for the Gunners

Monday, 17th August 2009 11:21pm
Arsenal came away from Goodison Park with a 6-1 thumping of Everton to record the biggest win of round 1 in the new 2009/10 season.

The Gunners were the only team in round 1 to score more than two goals. In the same round last season, also one team managed to score more than two goals and that was Manchester United against Aston Villa.

Other two highlights from this year's English Premier League first round was that there were no draws and also the majority of wins were by away teams.

In the same round last season there were two goalless draws and four home wins.

All the three promoted teams failed to win a match and they also all failed to score a single goal.

In round 2 there are four postponed matches because of European commitments but all the but all the promoted teams matches are going ahead and so they have another chance to open their accounts.
