Everton stuns Man United with late equaliser



FIRING HOME:Steven Pienaar scores Everton's first goal against Manchester United on Saturday.

LONDON: Chelsea maintained its perfect start to the Premier League season while a dramatic injury time fight back saw a Wayne Rooney-less Manchester United threw away victory at Everton.

Two goals from Michael Essien and a Salomon Kalou strike helped the Blues to a 3-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park as Carlo Ancelotti's side preserved its two-point lead at the top of the table.

Manchester United missed the chance to keep the pressure on Chelsea after Everton scored twice in stoppage time to scramble a 3-3 draw against Sir Alex Ferguson's men at Goodison Park.

United had appeared to be cruising to victory after goals from Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov had cancelled out Steven Pienaar's first half opener.

Late surge

However, a late header from Tim Cahill and shot from Mikel Arteta gave Everton an improbable share of the points to leave United four points behind Chelsea. Arsenal stayed in touch at the top with a 4-1 rout of 10-man Bolton at the Emirates, with summer signings Laurent Koscielny and Marouane Chamakh both getting on the scoresheet for Arsene Wenger's side.

Koscielny had fired the Gunners into a 1-0 lead on 24 minutes but Wanderers hit back through Johan Elmander at the stroke of half time after good work by South Korean international Lee Chong-Yong.

At Eastlands, Manchester City's faltering form continued as it was held to a 1-1 draw by Blackburn Rovers.

Blackpool earned its second victory of the season with a 2-0 defeat of Newcastle at St James Park. Ghanaian international Asamoah Gyan saw his Sunderland career get off to a dream start as he rose from the substitutes bench to rifle in the opener at Wigan before Antolin Alcaraz earned a 1-1 draw for the home side.

Dembele dazzles

Two goals from Moussa Dembele helped Fulham fight back from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 win over Wolves.

The Cottagers was rocked by a 10th-minute goal from Wolves defender Jelle Van Damme before Belgian forward Dembele struck in the 49th and 90th minutes to give Mark Hughes's team its first win of the season

The results: Arsenal 4 (Koscielny 24, Chamakh 58, Song 78, Vela 83) bt Bolton 1 (Elmander 44); Everton 3 (Pienaar 39, Cahill 90, Arteta 90) drew with Manchester United 3 (Fletcher 43, Vidic 47, Berbatov 66); Fulham 2 (Dembele 49, 90) bt Wolves 1 (Van Damme 10); Man City 1 (Vieira 55) drew with Blackburn 1 (Kalinic 25); Newcastle 0 lost to Blackpool 2 (Adam 45-pen, Campbell 90); West Brom 1 (Brunt 41) drew with Tottenham 1 (Modric 27); West Ham 1 (Parker 85) lost to Chelsea 3 (Essien 2, 83, Kalou 18); Wigan 1 (Alcaraz 87) drew with Sunderland 1 (Gyan 66) . — AFP
