Premier League Roundup: Man City, Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Stoke and Norwich win

Aug 31, 2013, 4:06 PM EDT

It was another Saturday full of close clashes in the Premier League, as once again we didn’t see many goal but fans across the Premier League were put through the mill in the six games so far.

In the early kickoff where Hull surprised everyone at Man City to late drama at Upton Park and St. James’ Park and relief around Selhurst Park in South London, there were so many close games in Week 3 of the Premier League.

We covered them all at ProSoccerTalk, so here are the recaps with plenty more reaction to come. And here are the Premier League standings.

Cardiff 0-0 Everton

A tough encounter at the Cardiff City Stadium as the Bluebirds dug in to see out a 0-0 draw against a frustrated looking Everton side. Roberto Martinez‘ men could have had two penalties in the first half and were stopped by David Marshall in Cardiff’s goal. In the second half Craig Bellamy had a good chance for Cardiff but Everton will be disappointed they didn’t push on more late in the game.

Crystal Palace 3-1 Sunderland

The Eagles have finally landed in the Premier League after a terrific second half display against Paolo Di Canio‘s Sunderland sealed the win. The pivotal moment came as John O’Shea was sent off and Crystal Palace were awarded a penalty in the 75th minute, as Dwight Gayle was tripped then picked himself up to score the spot kick. A wonderful evening at Selhurst Park… but not if you’re a Sunderland fan.

Man City 2-0 Hull

This was an incredible hard-fought win for Man City at the Etihad. Hull chased and pressed them for the entire game and the Tigers could have been 2-0 up after early chances were spurned by Sone Aluko and Danny Graham. However City’s classed showed in the end as substitute Alvaro Negredo headed home after 65 minutes and Yaya Toure curled in a tremendous free kick in the 90th minute. Hard work from Hull goes unrewarded.

Newcastle 1-0 Fulham

Hatem Ben Arfa was the hero at St. James’ Park as Fulham’s luck ran out in the 86th minute. The Frenchman finished superbly to give Alan Pardew‘s side a much needed first win of the season, after the Magpies dominated for most of the game. It looked as though Fulham would walk away from the North East with a point but Martin Jol‘s men can’t have many complaints about losing the game. Newcastle are up and running.

Norwich 1-0 Southampton

The Canaries clinched this one thanks to a terrific goal from teenager Nathan Redmond. The 19-year-old winger cut in from the left before smashing a wonderful low strike past Artur Boruc to send Carrow Road wild. Southampton came close as Adam Lallana struck the post with a fierce first half volley, but that was as good as it got. Both teams looked to force the issue in a lively second half but it was the Canaries who took all three points. Another close game, another close outcome.

West Ham 0-1 Stoke

Mark Hughes will be delighted with this win, as his new look Stoke side claimed back-to-back wins following a great performance against the Hammers. Jermaine Pennant‘s free kick in the 82nd minute sent the traveling fans from Staffordshire wild, as Stoke prove they’re on the right track. Back to the drawing board for Big Sam and West Ham.
