Barclays premier league review
BURNLEY 1 HULL CITY 0
GOAL:- BURNLEY: BARNES 50th.
Hull City won their first game since April, and their first since winning promotion to the Barclays Premier League. They went into this game as the only professional club in England without a victory following their worst start to the season since they failed to win in their opening 14 games in 1970. But Ashley Barnes's header early in the second half brought a first three points at the 11th attempt.
LIVERPOOL 1 CHELSEA 2
GOALS:- LIVERPOOL: CAN 9th.
CHELSEA: CAHILL 14th; COSTA 67th.
Chelsea's unbeaten start to the Barclays Premier League season continued at Anfield where Diego Costa's winner secured a ninth win of the campaign. Emre Can's deflected shot gave Liverpool an early lead but Gary Cahill levelled for Chelsea. Costa secured the three points midway through the second half with his 10th goal of the season to maintain Chelsea's unbeaten league record.
MANCHESTER UNITED 1
CRYSTAL PALACE 0
GOAL:- UNITED: MATA 67th.
Manchester United moved up to sixth in the Barclays Premier League as Juan Mata's second-half goal secured victory over stubborn Crystal Palace. There was little between the two in the first half, with Fraizer Campbell lobbing over for Palace and Luke Shaw denied for the hosts. United manager Louis van Gaal brought on Mata after an hour and he made a swift impact, driving in from 20 yards.
QUEENS PARK RANGERS 2
MANCHESTER CITY 2
GOALS: QPR: AUSTIN 21st, DEMICHELIS 76th OG. CITY: AGUERO 32nd, 83rd.
Queens Park Rangers' recovery continued while champions Manchester City's season suffered another blow. Rangers' Charlie Austin beat Joe Hart with a low effort but Sergio Aguero finished smartly to level before the break. Austin's cross forced Martin Demichelis into an own goal, but Agüero responded by rounding Rob Green to level for his 12th of the season.
SOUTHAMPTON 2 LEICESTER CITY 0
GOALS: LONG 75th, 80th.
Southampton's remarkable start to the season continued when substitute Shane Long came on to score twice in the final 15 minutes. Saints are second, just four points behind leaders Chelsea after Long struck in the 75th and 80th minutes. Leicester's Chris Wood missed a chance to claim only the second away goal at St Mary's this season.
WEST HAM UNITED 0 ASTON VILLA 0
West Ham striker Andy Carroll was denied a goalscoring Barclays Premier League return as Aston Villa clung on to halt a run of six successive defeats. Carroll, making his first appearance of the season after an ankle injury, had two late headers saved after coming off the bench at Upton Park. The Hammers created numerous chances, especially during a frantic finale, but could not force a breakthrough.
