Rooney fires United with a brace, while Arsenal make a come back to win...

As the transfer season has come to an end, the attention has been shifted back on the League games. 

For Manchester United, it took just about 50 seconds for Wayne Rooney to score against Villa. When Edwin Van Der Sar launched a clearance deep into the Villa territory just outside his own area, Rooney took a one touch control then scoring past Brad Friedel. It was definitely a good start for the Red Devils. Probably inspired by Sir Alex Ferguson pre-match address, the striker was on form when he tapped home with ease for his second after Nani's brilliant effort. It might looked like an easy win if not for Bent wonderful goal in the 58' minute. However, Vidic goal in the 63' minute ensure that Manchester United take all the 3 points. 
The Red Devils maintain their unbeaten record and their efforts matched the 1999 Treble winners' record of 29 league games unbeaten and at the same time, maintaining the 5 points lead over closest rival, Arsenal.


On the other hand, Arsene Wenger boys were made to work hard for a come back against Everton. At the Emirates' Stadium, the Gunners had to come back from a goal down to beat Everton 2-1. In just 24 minutes, Louis Saha had already put Everton ahead but with Arshavin goal in the 70' minutes and Koscielny 75' minute winner, Arsenal were able to make sure that they are not too far behind from Manchester United. 

Defending champion, Chelsea were impressive as well in their away game against Sunderland. Sunderland took the lead in the 4th minute before Frank Lampard penalty brought them level. Salomon Kalou helped Chelsea to lead in the 23rd minuted before Kieran Richardson scored the equalizer in the 26th minute. However, in the second half, goals from John Terry and Anelka respectively ensured that Chelsea win against Sunderland to maintain the gap with current leader, Manchester United. 

Meanwhile, West Brom and West Ham only managed a 2-2 draw. And that's the results for the game yesterday.
