Chelsea Moves into Second with Win

There were some great games to watch this weekend, but none had as wild of an ending as the match between Chelsea and Manchester City.

Andre Schurrle got the Blues off to a nice start with a goal in the 33rd minute for the only goal of the half, but Chelsea had a chance to score before that.  A few minutes before the first goal, Fernando Torres had a chance on this shot, but he missed on a perfect opportunity:

A few minutes into the second half, Sergio Aguero was able to score for Manchester City to tie things at 1-1.

Then it got wild.

In the 90th minute with the score tied, Torres was able to redeem himself.  He took a great angle on a ball and was able to get past the defenders and the goalkeeper for the game-winner below:

As expected, Chelsea provided us with a picture of Torres and his reaction to the goal:

The win moves Chelsea all the way into second thanks to a goal differential of just one more than Liverpool.  Meanwhile, Manchester City is now in seventh, although the team had an opportunity to move into the top five with a win.

It was one wild finish, but the Blues came out on top and were able to stay in contention for the top spot in the latest table.

 

Sunderland Stuns Newcastle United for First Win

It may have taken nine matches, but Sunderland was finally able to grab its first win of the Premier League season over Newcastle United.

Steven Fletcher was able to get Sunderland on the board first in just the fifth minute.  He was set up by a fantastic cross and was able to get the header to draw first blood:

Sunderland was able to hold the lead through the entire first half, but then Newcastle United responded in the 57th minute.  Mathieu Debuchy was able to grab a goal and tie things up, potentially ending Sunderland's hopes of getting its first win of the season.

Instead, there were some late-game heroics by Sunderland.  Coming in as a second-half substitute, Fabio Borini officially became a hero for the Black Cats with an incredible strike from 25 yards away to put Sunderland up 2-1 with just six minutes remaining:

I think it's safe to say that Borini was excited:

Newcastle had a shot to move up a few spots, but now it's stuck outside of the top 10.  For Sunderland, it got its first win of the season and was finally able to move out of last place, jumping ahead of Crystal Palace.  However, it's still facing possible relegation, and it needs to step it up in order to get out of the bottom of the league.
