Moyes’ woes continue as the Saints will march home with a well-deserved point at Old Trafford. After a first half goal by RVP, Southampton looked every bit Manchester United’s equal. Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana combined to knock in a corner kick in the 89′ and the Saints fall out of the Top Four, but their surprising start is one of the league’s best early season storylines.
The Spurs supporter in me makes it hard to admit, but cannot deny the beauty of this 1-2-1-2 golazo by the Gunners. Jack Wilshire and Oliver Giroud’s precise combination led to one of the prettier goals that you will see this season. Norwich closed the gap to 2-1 with a 70′ goal from Jonathan Howson, but another Aaron Ramsey scored another and the back end of a brace from Mesut Ozil finished off the Canaries.
A fascinating, well-played game that deserved a draw. Yohan Cabaye skipped one past Steve Mignolet from 30 yards, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa‘s red card in the box led to a Gerrard penalty, and Sturridge saved the side with an equalizer in the 72′.
A couple of bizarre goals got this thing going with a Lazy Luiz moment and Samuel Eto’o questionable theft of the Cardiff keeper, but Chelsea pulled away for a comfortable three points.
Sergio Aguero scored a pair and Silva was his usual special self as City cruised to victory at Upton Park.
Sunderland is just so bad. Poor, poor Jozy.
Steven Pienaar scored only a minute after subbing into the game, in what turned out to be the match winner for the Toffees.
Despite the meh result, this match had some exciting moments, namely the extra time 1 v 1 save by Stoke’s Asmir Begovic.

Ibra and Cavani continued their run through Ligue 1 with each scoring twice and delivering a golazo a piece. Just wonder when they’ll be able to find a way to get both on to the pitch at the same time.
Goals from Di Maria and Ronaldo was enough for Madrid, who also saw Gareth Bale return with a cameo following his ongoing injury issues.
Despite Messi returning to the lineup, Barca failed to score and saw their winning streak come to an end at eight.
Mainz took a lead with a goal just before the half, but Bayern responded with four the second half to continue their unbeaten streak to nine games.
Marco Reus drew a penalty in the fourth minute, leading to the only goal the game saw.

Golazo du Jour
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (PSG) v Bastia
Arsenal might have an argument here, or his teammate Edison, but I can’t say no to Zlatan’s flick.
