NEWCASTLE 2-0 CHELSEA

Shola Ameobi returned to the Newcastle starting line up for the Chelsea game. He was replaced in the 62nd minute by Senegalese, Papiss Cisse. His younger brother, Sammy and John Obi Mikel were on the bench for Newcastle and Chelsea respectively but didn’t play a part in the game.

Newcastle ran away with the three points courtesy of goals from French men, Yoann Gouaffran and Loic Remy.

 

WEST BROM 2-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

Victor Anichebe was missing in West Brom’s team list for the game against a struggling Crystal Palace.

Saido Berahino and Gary McAuley ensured West Brom took maximum points.

 

HULL CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Sonie Aluko missed yet another game for Hull City through injury but his absence wasn’t felt as his team won the day courtesy of a Carlos Cuellar own goal.
