Yet another tumultuous, excruciating and nerve wracking Premier League action is a foregone conclusion. Arsenal went back to the top after beating Aston Villa last night. Liverpool’s 5-3 win against Stoke at the Britannia was certainly the pick of the games as Manchester United also returned back to winning ways. Chelsea too produced a matured a controlled performance to win by a 2-0 margin against Hull at the KC Stadium while Everton too continued their bright run in the form while Southampton too won against West Brom as Manchester City chalked out a hard fought 2-0 win at the Sports Direct Arena. Here are the four talking points from this week’s Premier League action.

Tiote’s brilliant strike from outside the penalty box was incorrectly ruled out for offside as Newcastle were clearly denied an equaliser. It looked legitimate as the midfielder rocketed in a strike from 25-yards after City failed to clear a corner. Unfortunately for the home side, the linesman thought otherwise albeit his interpretation that Yohan Cabaye was interfering play from an offside position. This brings referring decisions yet under scanner while Alan Pardew inexplicably launched a full mouth tirade to his opposite number Manuel Pellegrini. The Magpies manager later apologized, but it goes to show there is a thin line between atrocious and crossing the line.
