Premier League Weekend Round-up

Well in the Premier league on Saturday Betto was right with all but one of his predictions, so I hope you followed his advice and got those bets on.

Chelsea picked up a much needed 3 points in the title race as they beat Blackburn 2-0. Goals from Ivanovic and Anelka in the second half secured the points. Chelsea were able to field arguably a first choice 11, and seem to be back to winning ways. Betto predicted the home win

Man City and Wolves played out a 7 goal thriller that ended in a City win and them retaining top spot in the league over night. City were inspired by a Carlos Tevez master class, but Wolves had an outstanding first half and opened the scoring after a great quick free kick.  Unlucky Wolves, they can take a lot away from this game, but 3 points to City. Betto predicted a City win, but he thought Wolves would roll over a bit easier than they did.

Twitter trio Holden, Davies, and Taylor all started for Bolton after Betto predicted a Stoke win due to twitter tiredness! Stoke kept a clean sheet, as a first half goal from Higginbotham and a second half Etherington penalty were enough to give Stoke the points.

In Betto’s only prediction that didn’t come true West Brom edged Blackpool in a 3-2 thriller, with West Brom claiming all 3 points in the 87th minute. Standout performances from Mulumba, Odemwingie, and especially Jerome Thomas gave West Brom the points in this one.

Betto was right when he said the smart money was on a draw as Wigan and Fulham played out a 1-1 draw at the DW Stadium. A poor first half was made slightly better in the second with a goal for each side.

Arsenal compounded further misery on West Ham by thumping them 3-0 at Upton Park. Things aren’t looking too good for Grant and he is one loss away from getting the sack. Betto was right again on an Arsenal win, he must have had a tough shout on this one.

On Sunday the demolition derby’s lived up to their billing with hard-fought draws the order of the day.

Birmingham drew 1-1 with Villa, debutant David Bentley showing he still has it, but it wasn’t enough after Collins cancelled out Johnsons earlier strike in the battle of the centre backs.
Sunderland drew 1-1 with Newcastle after a last gasp Gyan goal on 90 minutes in the North East. The game was marred following a Sunderland supporter invading the pitch and pushing Steve Harper at the end of the game. It was a tense afternoon after both sets of fans were at each other throwing missiles and chairs.

In the top 5 clash of the day the points were shared, as Spurs and Man U played out a 0-0 draw. The game was end to end, but no one could take their chances.
