MOST COMMENTED

[ENGLAND] On a record Saturday for goals, the tamest game produced the biggest upset. Wolves handed Manchester United its first loss of the season when it beat the leader, 2-1. Second-place Arsenal was unable to take full advantage, blowing a 4-0 lead and having to settle for a  4-4 tie at Newcastle.

Saturday's eight games produced 41 goals for an average of 5.1 goals per game.

United was unbeaten in 29 Premier League matches dating back to last April but fell to Wolves despite taking the lead after three minutes on a goal by Nani. George Elokobi equalized after 11 minutes, and Kevin Doyle scored before halftime.

Arsenal was cruising along with a 4-0 lead after only 26 minutes when French midfielder Abou Diaby was sent off three minutes after the break.

Newcastle came back thanks to two penalties by Joey Barton and goals by Leon Best and Ivorian Cheik Tiote.

Frenchman Louis Saha had four goals in Everton's 5-3 win over Blackpool, while Argentine Carlos Tevez scored all three of Manchester City's goals in its 3-0 win over West Bromwich.
