Super Sunday: Review

There were two matches in the Premier League including three goals and plenty of action. In this article I will be sharing with you all the highlights of:

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Hotspurs

Chelsea vs. Hull City Tigers

Jose Mourinho sparked of his Premier League return with a sweet victory against newly promoted Hull City who were dominated from the start by the blues.

Chelsea were awarded an early penalty when Hull goalkeeper Alan McGregor collided with Fernando Torres inside the box whilst going for the ball. Lampard was the man to step up to take the penalty, but to both sets of fans surprise the Scottish goalkeeper was able to deny Chelsea’s all-time top scoring midfielder and redeem himself from the penalty mishap.

The Blues were very dominant throughout the first half, with high pressure from the beginning which soon paid off with a delicate poke from Brazil midfielder Oscar which rolled into the back of the net with the assist coming from Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne.

Later on in the half, Lampard was too allowed the chance redeem himself for the missed spot-kick by firing an absolute stunning long-range free kick into the top right corner leaving McGregor helpless.

With further chances for Lampard, Torres, Hazard, De Bruyne and Schurrle for the blues and Sagbo and Davies for Hull, no one was able to add to the score line before the final whistle leaving Chelsea boss Mourinho with a pleasant smile on his face with his first competitive win up his sleeve since returning to Stamford Bridge.

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Hotspurs

Roberto Soldado enjoyed a delightful debut to Premier League life by scoring the only goal of the match snatching the whole three points for the Spurs. The Eagles put up a fairly strong performance showing some good signs of promise but were unable to keep the score level when Dean Moxey handballed in the box. Soldado made no mistake in the finish and coolly slotted past Julian Speroni to score his first ever Premier League goal.

With a pretty even game up until that point, Palace’s defence appeared to be relatively secure and structured however it was a little mistake which cost them the first three points of the season.

Despite some late chances from Chadli, Defoe and Dikgacio, neither side were able to increase the score line and Tottenham settled for a 1-0 win away from home.

Final Score: Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham Hotspurs
