Here’s a look back at the good, the bad, and the ugly from week four of the Premier League.
- Phil Jones: Jones moved outside to right back and showed that he is a force to be reckoned with, at that position as well.
- Stoke City: They played determined defense throughout the match and took three points against Liverpool.
- Arsenal: It wasn’t convincing, but Arsenal gets one in the win column.
- Sergio Aguero: He is making it look easy to come and play in the Premier League.
- Tottenham: It’s possible that the Luka Modric hangover is over.
- Stiliyan Petrov: His right footed smash from outside the area is on the short list for goal of the year.
- Daniel Sturridge: Hopefully, Torres was taking notes on how it is supposed to be done.
- Wayne Rooney: Back to back hat tricks, eight goals in four games. Has he wrapped up the player of the year award already?
- Foxsoccer.tv: I have given this product many jeers so far this season, but this weekend fans finally got what they paid for.
- The international break is over: With all the European Leagues open for play and the Champions League kicking off, it’s a good time to be a football fan.
- Danny Graham: Swansea’s loss can’t be blamed solely on his shoulders, but the Swansea fans wished he would have knocked home one into the wide-open goal late against Arsenal.
- Luis Suarez: Strikers go through good streaks and bad streaks. Right now he just can’t seem to find the back of the net.
- Kevin Davies: He was lucky to escape a red card after his harsh tackle injured Tom Cleverley.
- Ritchie de Laet: His defensive miscue led to West Brom’s only goal in a win over Norwich.
- Michel Vorm: Swansea needs to play perfect football against teams like Arsenal. But the goalie’s error gave the Gunners a gift goal.
- Bolton: They picked a bad week to stop playing defense.
- Carlos Tevez: His penalty miss summed up his performance on Saturday.
- Wigan: It appears that Wigan is coming back to earth.
- Queens Park Rangers: Four matches, one goal. They will need to learn how to finish to avoid relegation.
