    Wigan Athletic win this week's performance of the week for their victory against Arsenal at the Emirates.

    Going two up in the opening minutes, Wigan managed to absorb all the Gunners could throw at them and hang on for a famous and historic 2-1 victory.

    Man of the match, Victor Moses proved to be the best performer on the pitch and his decision to play for the country of his birth is clearly England's loss as well as Nigeria's gain.

    This week's performance of the week belongs to Wigan Athletic for their deserved win against Manchester United.

    As the impressive Wigan manager Roberto Martinez pointed out, this is an historic victory for Wigan who have never previously taken a point off Manchester United. It also takes Wigan out of the bottom three for the first time since September.

    As Alex Ferguson admitted after the match, Wigan were the better side and are in a false position - with the standard of their play certainly meriting a higher position in the League.

    Sunderland win this week's performance of the week for ending Manchester City’s 100% home record.

    - Manchester City went in to the game with the chance of equalling Liverpool’s all-time top division record of 21 consecutive home wins which has stood since 1972.
    - Despite their revival under Martin O’Neill, Sunderland had won only one of their last five away games in the Premier League.
    - Sunderland have not won at Manchester City since 1998 and lost 11 of their 15 previous Premier League meetings including all seven in Manchester.
    - Against the odds, Sunderland came within minutes of pulling off one of the shock results of the season and certainly put a severe dent into City’s title ambitions.
    - Seb Larsson scored either side of a Nicklas Bendtner header ...

    Premier League Performance of the Week – Bolton Wanderers

    Three vital points in the crucial Lancashire relegation derby against Blackburn Rovers would have made them worthy contenders for the award anyway but, of course, Bolton Wanderers have had much more to contend with in the past week.

    The Whites made an emotional return to action a week after midfielder Fabrice Muamba suffered his cardiac arrest during the FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur.
    According to club doctor Jonathan Tobin, Fabrice was ‘in effect dead’ for 78 minutes following his collapse at White Hart Lane.

    Prior to the 2-1 win over Blackburn, supporters
    held up a mosaic of cards which spelled out ‘Muamba 6’, referring to his shirt number, and both sets of players ...

  9. Premier League performance of the week: West Bromwich Albion

    by , 6th March 2012 at 05:13 PM (11v11 blog)
    This week our performance of the week goes to West Bromwich Albion for their win against Chelsea.


    - If Chelsea had become West Bromwich Albion’s bete noire, all that was put behind them with Gareth McAuley’s goal giving the Baggies a fully deserved victory at The Hawthorns which brought Andre Villas-Boas’ reign to a premature end.

    - Chelsea had won all 11 previous Premier League meetings with Albion.

    - The Baggies had not beaten Chelsea in 17 league meetings since March 1979, drawing one and losing 16.
    - Roy Hodgson’s team came into the game in fine form though. In their two previous games (5-1 at Wolverhampton Wanderers and 4-0 v Sunderland), they had won consecutive top-division games by a margin of four goals or more for ...
  10. Premier League performance of the week: Arsenal

    This week's performance of the week was Arsenal’s 5-2 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur.

    Following the defeat to Milan in the Champions League and FA Cup exit at Sunderland, Arsenal’s season was in danger of imploding as they trailed their North London rivals by two goals on home soil after little more than half-an-hour.

    In this, their 150th league meeting, Tottenham Hotspur looked like increasing their chances of finishing above their hosts for the first time since 1995 when former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor became only the second player after Jimmy Robertson to score for both teams in derby matches.

    Indeed, Spurs fans were looking forward to back-to-back league wins at the home of the Gunners for the first time since 1926.
