Sunday's Premier League round up

The highlight of today's games in the Premier League was Liverpool against Arsenal in Anfield with both sides going into the game unbeaten, elsewhere Spurs new manager Juande Ramos watched from the stands as his side entertained Blackburn at White Hart Lane. Bolton began life with Gary Megson as manager when they took on Aston Villa at the Reebok and Everton travelled to Pride Park where they took on the league stragglers, Derby.

Tottenham went into their game against Blackburn third from bottom and in serious need of a win. Spurs went ahead after 49 minutes when Aaron Lennon was taken down in the box, the duty was left to Robbie Keane who coolly fired past Friedel. However, Blackburn's pressure paid off and Benni McCarthy pulled back an equaliser for Mark Hughes' men with a deflected shot creeping agonisingly over Spurs no.2 keeper Radek Cerny. Little did the White Hart Lane faithful know the worst was yet to come when in the dying seconds of the game Blackburn centre-half Chris Samba drilled home from the edge of the box. That 2-1 victory means 4 wins on the trot for Blackburn and that they move up into the UEFA cup places. What has Juande Ramos gotten himself into?

Bolton started today bottom of the league and in charge of them was Gary Megson. It was however a vibrant start from Bolton who earned their goal 22 minutes in when Nicolas Anelka curled a superb free kick into the top corner giving Thomas Sorensen no chance. But Luke Moore was to deny the former West Brom boss a debut victory as on 57 minutes the striker converted from close range after a controversial overrule from the referee over his linesman wrongfully giving Villa a throw. With a low attendance of just a little over 18,000, a league lowthis season, it's worrying times for Bolton.

At Pride Park Derby took on Everton, a game in which The Rams desperately needed something out of. But Mikel Arteta put a huge dent in the hopes of Derby putting the Toffees in front after 26 minutes. Yakubu doubled that lead after latching onto a Stephen Pienaar pass and striking home from close range. The game finished 2-0, and Derby posed little threat throughout the whole match.
