United back on top after week's games

11 March 2010 11:31
Arsenal missed the chance to go top on Saturday when a four goal win against the Clarets would have seen them lead the table, but in any case Manchester United's win against Wolves a couple of hours later saw them take top place again. Meanwhile down at the bottom, the news from elsewhere hasn't been brilliant for us. Bolton won on Saturday, albeit against West Ham whilst Bolton themselves provided Sunderland with their first win since on Tuesday.Between those games, Wigan got their first ever win against a shockingly poor Liverpool, but there was some good news on Sunday at Goodison Park as a very much in form Everton hammered Hull.Our draw last night has seen us move up one place in the table to 18th.The recent results, a list of the Premier League leading scorers, each club's disciplinary record and the next fixtures are all below.The Week's ResultsSaturday 6th MarchArsenal 3 Burnley 1Wolves 0 Manchester United 1West Ham 1 Bolton 2.Sunday 7th MarchEverton 5 Hull 1.Monday 8th MarchWigan 1 Liverpool 0.Tuesday 9th MarchPortsmouth 1 Birmingham 2Sunderland 4 Bolton 0Wednesday 10th MarchBurnley 1 Stoke 1.The Week's StatsBiggest winEverton 5-1 v Hull (home)Sunderland 4-0 v Bolton (home)Total goals scored24 (16 home - 8 away)Player scoring most goals3 - Darren Bent (Sunderland)Highest Attendance60,043 - Arsenal v BurnleyLowest Attendance17,427 - Wigan v LiverpoolTotal Yellow Cards31Total Red Cards2Most cards in a gameWest Ham v Bolton (7Y 1R) - Lee ProbertThe leading scorers (league only)23Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)19Didier Drogba (Chelsea)18Darren Bent (Sunderland)16Jermain Defoe (Tottenham)15Carlos Tevez (Manchester City)14Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal)13Louis Saha (Everton)Fernando Torres (Liverpool)12Frank Lampard (Chelsea)11Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa)9Emmanuel Adebayor (Manchester City)Dimitar Berbatov (Manchester United)Carlton Cole (West Ham)Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool)8Nicolas Anelka (Chelsea)Andrey Arshavin (Arsenal)Craig Bellamy (Manchester City)Hugo Rodallega (Wigan)Bobby Zamora (Fulham)7Alessandro Diamanti (West Ham)Steven Fletcher (Burnley)Cameron Jerome (Birmingham)Kenwyne Jones (Sunderland)Robin van Persie (Arsenal)Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal)Hat Tricks (league only)19th Aug3 - Jermain Defoe - Hull v TOTTENHAM12th Sep3 - Yossi Benayoun - LIVERPOOL v Burnley26th Sep4 - Robbie Keane - TOTTENHAM v Burnley26th Sep3 - Fernando Torres - LIVERPOOL v Hull31st Oct3 - Aruna Dindane - PORTSMOUTH v Wigan21st Nov5 - Jermain Defoe - TOTTENHAM v Wigan28th Nov3 - Wayne Rooney - Portsmouth v MANCHESTER UNITED11th Jan3 - Carlos Tevez - MANCHESTER CITY v Blackburn23rd Jan4 - Wayne Rooney - MANCHESTER UNITED v Hull9th Mar3 - Darren Bent - SUNDERLAND v BoltonDisciplinary Record (all domestic games)ClubYRClubYRArsenal560Liverpool515Aston Villa582Manchester City523Birmingham581Manchester United536Blackburn574Portsmouth714Bolton614Stoke644Burnley533Sunderland726Chelsea484Tottenham531Everton542West Ham583Fulham371Wigan461Hull574Wolves533The Next FixturesSaturday 13th MarchBirmingham v EvertonHull v Arsenal (17:30)Bolton v WiganStoke v Aston VillaBurnley v WolvesTottenham v Blackburn (12:45)Chelsea v West Ham.Sunday 14th MarchManchester United v Fulham (13:30)Sunderland v Manchester City (16:00)Monday 15th MarchLiverpool v Portsmouth (20:00).Tuesday 16th MarchWigan v Aston Villa.
