Football: Barclays Premier League Results, Sunday 28 November 2010

Two important Barclays Premier League matches took place on the afternoon of Sunday, 28th November 2010. For the first ever Premier League weekend in history, every one of the 20 teams in action scored at least once as there were goals in both Newcastle v Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool.

Newcastle 1-1 Chelsea

In the day’s early kick-off, Newcastle took an early lead through Andy Carroll, who capitalised on a poor backpass from Brazilian defender, Alex, in the 6th minute. Chelsea responded with a deflected Kalou goal on 45 minutes, and proceeded to miss one or two chances to claim all three points, the lack of which means they must now relinquish the top of the league to Man Utd.

Tottenham 2-1 Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur once again played a much improved second half to the first as they came from a goal behind to produce a last gasp winner at White Hart Lane.

Skrtel put the visitors in charge with a 43rd minute goal before the same player went from hero to villain with an own goal following excellent build up play from Modric on 65 minutes – though in fairness to the defender, there was very little he could do to avoid the embarrassing outcome.

Spurs took the three points their superior shot count perhaps deserved when Aaron Lennon latched onto a Peter Crouch flick-on in the 92nd minute, to claim three points that place them into fifth in the league – a point away from Man City in the vital UEFA Champions League fourth spot, and just six away from table toppers Man Utd.

If Spurs can begin matches the way they are currently ending them, they will pose a serious threat to any side this season.

  1. A good day for ManU fans…

  2. Don’t know much about football but made a point this month to watch all matches in premier…..What I canot understnd is this: Over 50% of the time in the match most players were either walking or just standing still with the occasional burst of running etc…For players earning over £100,000 per week to be ‘tired’ and needing rests or burnt out is a puzzle…A top tennis player can play up to 2/3 hours at an incredible pace continiously and go out and play again a few days later..no mention being too tired to perform…How can a footballer be so tired performing 90 mins a week of play and get paid so much.??? well maybe he might 2 times in a week 180Mins!!! I am 67 year of age and go all day non stop…I certainly am on the go much more than these highly paid players….Its time these con artists footballers were exposed for what it really is…

      Hi Ruth, tennis players do sit down every few minutes and have a rest.

      Both sports are physically draining, and playing a professional contact sport is certainly physically damaging, as the injury list at every professional football club will illustrate.

      That said, wages are based upon popularity, not physical endurance required. Football and tennis are both popular sports; their best proponents command high wages, regardless of how many miles they put on the clock.

    • footballers are paid to do two things:

      1) to put the ball in the opposition’s net;
      2) to prevent the opposition from putting the ball into their team’s net.

      That’s it.

      If they can achieve this repeatedly, in front of 60,000+ cheering fans, and countless millions around the world watching on television, they deserve to be well paid for this, don’t they?

      VERY few footballers earn in excess of £100,000 per week, though some can run 15 KMs in a match – that’s better than a lot of amateur runners can achieve… Just look at the stats next time Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard (they DO earn high wages) play, see the distances they run; it will be more than Federer or Nadal covered in three matches, fact.
