We saw an insurmountable comeback, rivals square off, first lose to worst, some late winners, and a few hat tricks. All in all, there were 43 goals scored in 10 games. Best league in the world? You bet. This was an incredible weekend for football. Allow me to review some top highlights:
Arsenal lose a 4 goal lead...I mean Newcastle come back from 4 down
I am speechless. How in the world did Arsenal let this happen? I have not heard Arsene Wenger's post-match comments, but I'm sure he blamed the loss on something ridiculous: "The referee's kit color distracted my players." Please watch the video above and marvel at this incredible comeback, which was capped off by an unbelievable strike from 20 yards by Cheick Tioté.
Liverpool doubles up on the champions - Fernando who?
United they fall
Electrifying late goals
Tioté's equalizing screamer in the 87th minute was not the only late stunner this weekend. Nico Kranjcar (above) drilled a 30 yarder in the 92nd minute against Bolton to secure all 3 points for Tottenham and versatile defender Robert Huth struck twice in the dying moments to give Stoke a crucial victory over Sunderland.
Man City's Carlos Tevez recorded a first half hat-trick and Everton striker Louis Saha struck a hat-trick plus one in a great win over Blackpool.
I'll admit, more than once I had three streams running on my laptop. It was extremely hard to choose one game to watch. The EPL keeps us wanting more and more. The words "best league in the world" don't really have to be said anymore, since it's pretty much established that the Prem is just that.
