Premier League results

There were many goals in the Premier league over the weekend firstly Manchester United came from 2-0 down to beat struggling Aston Villa 3-2 at Villa Park. Manchester United controlled the game from start to finish however The Villans were the better team in the first half as they went 1-0 up in the first half. But Javier Hernandez came on in the 46th minute and scored United's first goal after 58 minutes, he then forced an own goal from Ron Vlaar just 4 minutes later and then scored the winner with 3 minutes to go.

West Brom beat rivals Wigan 2-1 at the DW stadium with goals from James Morrison and a Gary Caldwell own goal. Wigan's goal came from Arouna Kone. QPR's woes continue as a Charlie Adam goal was enough to beat them 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium the result means that QPR are still without a win this season.

Struggling Southampton were held to a draw against Swansea. Morgan Shneidelein opened the scoring with a headed goal. Nathan Dyer scored the equaliser 13 minutes from time. Southampton now only have 5 points from a possible 33. Reading kept their first clean sheet of the campaign with a 0-0 draw with an unimpressive Norwich.

Everton left it late to come back from 1-0 down against Sunderland to win 2-1 with both of the goals with in 3 minutes by Nikica Jelavic and Marouane Fellaini. Fulham denied Arsenal a win as the two sides draw 3-3 at the Emirates Stadium.

Europa League results

It was a mixed day of results for British teams on match day 4 on the Europa League. Tottenham beat Slovenian club NK Maribor 3-1 thanks to a Jermain Defoe hat-trick. It was a very dominant performance from the London club, the only reason why Spurs conceded a goal was because of Hugo Lloris's disgusting clearence. Tottenham are one of 12 teams who are unbeaten so far.

It was a historic day for Newcastle as Shola and Sammy Ameobi became the first Newcastle brothers to start a game for the Geordies for 60 years! The historic day was marked with an impressive comeback from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with goals from Vurnon Anita and Shola Ameobi. Newcastle are another one of the teams who are unbeaten so far.

Liverpool's youngster's travelled to Russia with a lot of confidence but failed to convert it into goals as they lost to Anzhi Makhachkala 1-0. Lacina Traore scored the only goal of the game. It dents Liverpool's hopes of reaching the next round. The results were:
Udinese 2-3 Young Boys, Academica 2-0 Athletico Madrid, Plzen 4-0 Hapoel Tel-Aviv, Fenerbhance 2-0 AEL Limassol, Marseille 2-2 Borussia M'gladbach, Bordeaux 1-0 Maritimo, FC Copenhagen 0-2 VFB Stuttgart, Molde 1-2 Steaua Buch't, AIK Solna 1-0 PSV Eind'ven, Napoli 4-2 Dnipro, FC Basel 1-0 Videoton, Sporting 1-1 Genk, Partizan Belgrade 1-3 Inter Milan, Neftchi 0-1 Rubin Kazan, Athletic Bilbao 2-3 Lyon, HAP Kiryat Shmona 1-1 Sparta Prague, Lazio 3-0 Pananthaikos, B Leverkuson 3-0 Rapid Vienna, Met'st Kharkiv 3-1 Rosenborg, FC Twente 0-0 Levante, Hannover 96 3-2 Helsenborgs.

Champions League results

It was a great day for British clubs on match day 4. There were wins for Celtic, Chelsea and Manchester United the most historic being Celtic's win. The Bhoys beat Spanish giants Barcelona 2-1 at Celtic Park. Victor Wanyama opened the scoring after 21 minutes and 18 year old Tony Watt doubled after 82 minutes. But there was still time for Lionel Messi to add a consolation at the end. I think that Tito Vilanova totally destroyed Barcelona's natural style which resulted in them losing. They looked sloppy and didn't finish very well as they hit the post a number of times.

Chelsea narrowly beat Shaktar Donetsk 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. Fernando Torres scored first on 6 minutes by a 'flukey' goal, Willian equalised just 3 minutes later Oscar then scored a brilliant 35 yard-er, but Willian got it back 9 minutes after half time. But Victor Moses headed in the winner 4 minutes into stoppage time.

Manchester United are the first British team through to the next round with a 3-1 win against Braga in Portugal. Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez. The other results are:
Bayern Munich 6-1 Lille, Benifica 2-0 Spartak Moscow, CFR Cluj-Napoca 1-3 Galatasary, Juventus 4-0 Nordsjaelland, Valencia 4-2 BATE Borisov.
