What a week it was in the English Premier League. Not too many people could have predicted how it ended. There was no short supply of drama and shocks in some quarters.  The table is beginning to take shape especially the bottom three. For the top four, you will agree it will be rather too early to hazard a guess in that direction.
However, in Premier League, every game is very vital and defines how a club will fare at the end of the season.  This week in review, some games were won and some lost. We take a look at how some of the teams fared.

Manchester United:

You could choose your comparisons. This is either Manchester United’s worst start to a season since 1989 .
It is 44 days since David Moyes’s first game as Manchester United manager, a deceptively reassuring 4-1 win at Swansea, which was also the last time the club scored from open play in the Premier League. Moyes has never lived by excuses and made none after the 2-1 defeat by West Bromwich Albion that was United’s third and worst of the season.
Will Manchester United pull out of the woods this season? Who are the players that will take responsibility to ensure that the boat stays afloat?  Only time will tell


Jose Mourinho risked disciplinary charges yesterday when he branded Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen " a disgrace" and accused referee Mike Dean of making a "huge mistake" after the sending-off of Fernando Torres as Chelsea recovered to have the better of a 1-1 draw here.
Mourinho's team had come from a goal down to dominate the second half and equalise before Torres was controversially shown a second yellow card nine minutes from the end.
Is Mourinho already bringing heat to Premiership? How far will Chelsea go this season?


Luis Suarez marked his return to Premier League action with two goals to help Liverpool to a 3-1 win at managerless Sunderland that lifted them to second in the table on Sunday.
The Uruguay striker, who returned from a 10-match ban for biting in the midweek League Cup loss at Manchester United, was making his first league appearance since being suspended for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April.

He scored Liverpool's second in the 36th minute after Daniel Sturridge had opened their account eight minutes earlier with a controversial goal that went in off his upper arm after he had risen to try to head in a corner.
Suarez had to wait until the 89th minute for his second goal and it was Sturridge again who set him up for a simple finish that sealed Liverpool's fourth league victory of the season.
The win put them on 13 points from six games, ahead of Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference and two points behind leaders Arsenal.

How did your team fare? We will like to hear from you.
