Premier League Saturday Wrap up.

Sorry haven't been able to post for the past few days, had some family issues to take care of. Finally the weekend and tons of matches to watch.

In England Everton and Manchester United tied 3-3 in what was perhaps the game of the day. Rooney was left off the field due to his personal problems and to prevent his old club's fans from verbally abusing him all match. Everton came back from a two goal deficit with goals in compensation time from Tim Cahill, who later set up Arteta who would seal the tie.

In other results Arsenal thumped Bolton 4-1 without RvP and Arshavin. Chamakh continues to impress scoring yet another goal.

Chelsea beat West Ham 3-1 and continue in first place while the Hammers still struggle to find consistency.

Manchester City dropped valuable points at home when they were unable to go past Blackburn in their quest for Champion's League football.

Tottenham drew away with West Brom as they fight to stay in the top four again this season. The draw was not the bad news however as they lost Luca Modric who had to leave on crutches.

In a battle of two newly promoted teams, Blackpool got a great result at St. James Park against Newcastle winning 2-0. This was a 6 point game for them as they both seek to avoid relegation this year.

Fulham beat Wolves 2-1 but will be devastated as Bobby Zamora had to leave the field on a stretcher and an oxygen mask due to a challenge from Karl Henry. Rumours say he could be out for as long as 4 months.

Finally Wigan and Sunderland drew 1-1 with new signing Asamoah Gyan scoring for Sunderland. Lee Catermole saw his second red in three matches, after claiming he was not a dirty player earlier this week.

That's it for today, we'll see Liverpool tomorrow and wrap up the Spanish Primera.
