Premier League Week Two Winners and Losers

A look at the winners and losers in the second weekend of Premier League action

What crisis at Arsenal? Two games and 10 goals have silenced the critics. Next up in the league is the first big four game of the season as Arsenal go to Manchester United this weekend. The only cloud on Arsenal’s performance so far is the lack of goals for forwards. At some point, the defenders will stop scoring two goals a game and the Arsenal forwards will have to start hitting the net.

The future of U.S. made his Premier League debut as a substitute for Hull and made an impact on the game, assisting on the goal and almost scoring one himself.

Six points from 2 games at home has to be more than the most fanatical Burnley fan could have hoped for. Especially when you consider who they have beaten this week, Manchester United and Everton.

Nine points from 3 games and top of the table with Birmingham to play at home this weekend. Then comes back to back games against Manchester United and Chelsea. Those games will tell us more about whether Spurs are really European contenders this season.

Four goals in three games to go with his two for England against Holland gives Defoe six goals already this month.


The demise of Portsmouth is sad to see. You know things are bad when the Premier League has to agree to cover a transfer deal with Pompey’s television cash if the club fails to pay Lens on time for Ivory Coast striker Aruna Dindane.

Two games, two loses and bottom of the table. Obviously they will not stay there but David Moyes need to get use the money he got for Lescott and bring in some new players before the end of the month. Or it will be a disappointing season for Everton fans
