EPL Weekly Round-Up: United Still Unbeaten, Rivals Grab Late Winners And Geordies Win Tyne-Wear Derby

Manchester United put up a solid performance at Old Trafford to overcome Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 following their midweek League Cup win over Wolves... Skipper Vidic put United ahead via a powerful header in the 31st minute from Nani's spot kick & then six minutes away from full-time, Nani doubled the lead with an extremely bizarre & controversial strike... Rafael Van der Vaart & Luka Modric both went close for Spurs in the 1st half, but the attack fizzed out in the 2nd half as Van der Vaart limped off the field... Spurs face a daunting task ahead this week with Inter Milan visiting Whit Hart Lane while the Red Devils undertake a trip to Turkey to face Bursapor...

How The Rivals Fared This Week

Arsenal, Chelsea & Liverpool all grabbed late winners to win their respective games... League leaders Chelsea came from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 away from home with Brainslav Ivanovic scoring the winner... Alexander Song & Maxi Rodriguez rescued Arsenal & Liverpool respectively from certain draws... Man City went down to Wolves 2-1 at the Molineux after going 1-0 up through Adebayor's penalty...

And finally in the biggest win this past weekend, Newcastle United beat arch-rivals Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear derby 5-1 at St. James Park... Geordies captain Kevin Nolan was on fire as he scored a magnificent hat-trick to power his club to the top half of the league table...

The Weekly Verdict:

Player of the Week - Kevin Nolan

Team of the Week - Newcastle United

That's all Folks!

Yours,
