    The most shocking result of the weekend came from St. James' Park as Newcastle United defeated Chelsea, 2-0.

    Eden Hazard's reaction right here encapsulates the exact emotion that everyone surrounding Chelsea Football Club felt after the defeat.

    You can tell by the raw amount of joy on the faces of Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy how much their win over Chelsea meant to them. 

    Remy sealed the fate of the match in the 89th minute as he struck his shot off the post and into the back of the net. 

    The win boosted the Magpies up to ninth place in the league table. 

John Ruddy Concedes Again and Again

    Norwich City keeper John Ruddy was not a happy camper on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium. 

    Ruddy was forced to pick the ball out of his net on seven different occasions as the Canaries were embarrassed by Manchester City. 

The Scoreboard Says It All

    This picture of the Etihad Stadium scoreboard sums up how great of a day Manchester City had and how horrible it was for visiting Norwich City. 

    Six different Manchester City players struck the ball into the net as they stormed past the Canaries with ease on Saturday afternoon. 

Asmir Begovic Scores?

    That's right, a keeper actually scored in the EPL this weekend. 

    Stoke's Asmir Begovic got himself on the scoresheet just 12 seconds into the Potters' 1-1 draw with Southampton. 

    Begovic became just the fifth keeper to score in the history of the league, joining Kasper Schmeichel, Tim Howard, Paul Robinson and Brad Friedel as the only shot-stoppers to net a goal. 

Southampton Celebrate an Equalizer

    After Jay Rodriguez put Southampton level with Stoke in the 42nd minute, it seemed like everyone on the Saints team got in on the celebration. 

    Rodriguez's goal would be the final goal of the match, and it handed Mauricio Pochettino's squad a valuable away point. 

The Spotlight Is on West Brom

    West Brom defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 on Saturday at The Hawthorns. 

    While the match was not all too exciting, this glimpse of the throstle on the winning club's crest in a perfect amount of light represents a proud club that just fought hard for 90 minutes to earn a win. 

Big Sam's Touchline Emotions Run High

    West Ham and Aston Villa played to a 0-0 draw at Upton Park in a match that left Hammers manager Sam Allardyce frustrated. 

    Here, Big Sam is taking out his frustration on someone on the bench. 

    If West Ham do not want to annoy their manager more, maybe they should score a goal or two next time out. 

Too Little, Too Late for Fulham

    After the 65th minute goal scored by Alexander Kacaniklic, the Swede and two of his teammates raced back to midfield with a renewed sense of urgency. 

    The Cottagers thought they could pull another goal or two back at home against Manchester United. 

    However, those thoughts were rather wishful as Martin Jol's side fell 3-1 to United. 

David Moyes Applauds the United Win

    Beating Fulham by two goals on the road was not enough to make David Moyes sport a smile, but he did applaud the away supporters before ducking into the dressing room. 

    The Red Devils have now won three of their last four league matches, and everything looks to be back on track after a rocky start to the Moyes era. 

Sunderland Sink to a New Low

    Just when you thought it could not get worse for Sunderland, it did on Saturday.

    The Black Cats were forced to play with nine men in the second half after Lee Cattermole and Andrea Dossena were sent off right before halftime. 

    To make matters worse, Carlos Cuellar (pictured on the left) scored an own goal, which ended up being Hull's only score of the match. 

The Honeymoon Is Over, Gus

    After coming out victorious in the Tyne-Wear derby last week, new Sunderland manager Gus Poyet was handed a harsh dose of reality in his club's 1-0 loss to Hull City. 

    The Black Cats have plenty of work to do to climb out of the bottom three, and their fixture list does not get any easier with Manchester City visiting the Stadium of Light on Sunday.

    Look on the bright side, though, at least Sunderland are not in last place; that honor belongs to Crystal Palace. 

Aaron Ramsey's Tear Continues

    Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey has been one of the best players in England, starting the season with six goals and four assists in 10 matches. 

    Ramsey added his sixth goal of the season on Saturday as the Gunners took down Liverpool 2-0 and their hideous away uniforms at the Emirates Stadium. 

    The Welshman scored in the 59th minute to bury the Reds and extend his club's lead at the top of the table to four points. 

Luis Suarez and Liverpool Left Wanting More

    Liverpool suffered a blow to their title hopes with their 2-0 loss to Arsenal.

    The Reds' top marksman, Luis Suarez, could not find the back of the net, and he was left disappointed after missing a chance in the second half.

    It just would not be a Liverpool match without Luis Suarez sparking up some type of dispute with the opposition.

    On this occurrence, Suarez came face-to-face with Arsenal's Bacary Sagna.

    Luckily for both sides, the situation did not escalate thanks to the great mediator Per Mertesacker. 

Hugo Lloris Tries to Be a Hero When He Shouldn't

    Toward the end of Tottenham's 0-0 draw with Everton on Sunday, Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris collided with Romelu Lukaku and clearly was concussed.

    After a long consultation with the team's doctors and a stern warning from Michael Dawson to leave the match, Lloris wrongly stayed in the match.

    If Lloris had been playing in an NFL game, he would have been instantly removed. 

    Hopefully, this situation brings about the concussion discussion with EPL officials before it is too late.

    The South Wales derby on Sunday brought together two clubs that have very passionate feelings toward one another. 

    With that being said, the police in Cardiff made sure that they took every precautionary measure, including police on horseback outside of the stadium.

    Speaking of those passionate fans, here is a look at the crowd inside the Cardiff City Stadium. 

    The match ended 1-0 in favor of the host Bluebirds thanks to a Steven Caulker goal.

    Steven Caulker came back to haunt his former club with a 62nd minute goal for Cardiff City.

    The former Swansea City loanee headed home a cross from hometown hero Craig Bellamy to win the match for his new club. 

    The goal was Caulker's second of the season; he previously scored on Sept. 28 against Fulham. 

Michel Vorm Gets Sent off

    To make matters worse for Swansea on Sunday, their keeper, Michel Vorm, was sent off in the 90th minute of the match for this challenge on Frazier Campbell.

    Since the Swans had already used their three allowed substitutions, defender Angel Rangel had to step in to play between the pipes.
