Manchester dominated the Premier League

Wayne Rooney completes his hat-trick against Bolton

The city of Manchester continued it’s early Premier League domination with weekend wins for both City and United.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side continued it’s impressive opening to the campaign by destroying North West rivals Bolton 5-0 at the Reebok Stadium.

Striker Wayne Rooney continued his blistering form scoring another hat-trick – his second in as many games. Javier Hernandez completed the route with a brace.

Fergie praised his three-goal hero after the match.  He said: “When players get to their mid-20s, there is more thought in their game. Their timing is better. Wayne’s presence is good and he is looking fantastic.”

Title rivals City put three past Wigan with their new forward Sergio Aguero netted all three goals.

Liverpool suffered a set-back losing to Stoke City in a match they totally dominated. Jon Walters scored the only goal of the game from the spot after a controversial penalty in the first half.

Boss Kenny Dalglish was unhappy with a number of decisions during the game, including denying his side two clear penalties in the second half.

Dalglish said: “If I feel Liverpool are suffering then maybe I need to go down the same route as some other people go and see if we can get some benefit from that.

“I’ll speak to the owners first and see what they say because the last thing I want is for my behavior to infringe on the club’s success in any way.”

Sergio Aguero also scores three against Wigan

Chelsea beat Sunderland 2-1 but misfit striker Fernando Torres again failed to score for the Blues.

Arsenal got back to winning ways narrowing beating Swansea at home by a single goal while Tottenham put two past Wolves without reply.

In Saturday’s other match Everton and Aston Villa fought out a 2-2 draw.

On Sunday Fulham and Blackburn tied 1-1 while new boys Norwich went down 1-0 at home to West Brom.
