EPL Round Up: Chelsea remain unstoppable

Chelsea have maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park Saturday afternoon.

The victory courtesy of goals from Oscar and Cesc Fabregas means the Blues maintain their five-point lead at the summit of the EPL table

As largely expected, Super Eagles midfielder, John Obi Mikel, was not considered for action after his long travel with Nigeria during the international break where he starred for all 90 minutes in games against Sudan in Khartoum and Abuja

In another match at the Emirates, Sone Aluko, who was on duty for the Super Eagles in the AFCON qualifying matches, was not in the Hull City team that gave Arsenal a scare.

The Tigers were already running away with a 2-1 win over the Gunners before a late Danny Welbeck strike ensured that the points were shared as the game ended 2-2.

At St Marys, history was made as Southampton whipped Sunderland 8-0.

The goal rush started with Sunderland’s Santiago Vergini own goal in the 12th minute.
Graziano Pelle made it 2-0 six minutes later and there was more misery for the more than 2,000 travelling Sunderland fans who had made the long journey down from the north-east to the south coast when Jack Cork turned in from close range.
The goals kept coming in the second half. Liam Bridcutt diverting Pelle’s shot into his own net for a second own goal of the match before Pelle, Dusan Tadic, Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane piled on the agony for Sunderland as Southampton recorded their biggest top-flight victory in their history.

In the early kick off, Sergio Aguero scored four goals to help Manchester City whip Tottenham Hotspurs 4 – 1 at the Etihad Stadium. Christian Eriksen scored the consolation goal for Spurs.

In other results, Everton beat Aston Villa 3 – 0, West Ham United thumped hosts Burnley 3 -1, while Newcastle United recorded their first win of the season beating Leicester by a lone goal.

    Those who pulled down GEJ’s government for selfish reasons would never know peace. Soludo has finally realized that Buhari was big mistake. Nigerians were deceived by the likes of Soludo via his junk economic indices to elect an excavated dinosaur like Buhari as president of Nigeria in this 21st century. Welcome to 1984 Buharinomics. Change my foot!

      You have not started crying. Jonathan was a colossal failure pulled down by the executive office of the citizens through democracy of choice. Dr Jona has no legacy achievement in Bayelsa before Obasanjo maliciously issued him a visa to Abuja. I wonder where he borrowed the capacity to perform what he couldn’t do in his homestate? However Soludo has credited Jona with certain positives in the shared PDP years.

        There are several concessions and non-tariff barriers (NTBs) available to us under the WTO and other bilateral agreements that we are not even exploiting. With poor electricity, costly finance, little research and development (R&D), decadent infrastructure, insecurity, policy inconsistencies and mostly unemployable graduates of the educational system, does Nigeria now hope to ‘ban’ its way to prosperity?

        Buhari needs help. Get rid of your arrogance and read properly.

    • Charles Uzoma

      Oga Darlington, why don’t you address the issues raised and propose your own economic indices before attacking Soludo’s person. As usual, the lights are on and no-ones at home

    Will Mr President take advice? Campaigns are over.

    The effect of the bans and high duties is already been felt.I have stopped importing as the demand is not elastic. The buyers can not afford the higher prices for now maybe later if they are not dead they will have no choice but to pay higher prices for imports. But local production is a big farce, its not possible with the high costs involved.
