All Hail Rooney! (EPL roundup)

101 goals for United and just 23 years old. Not too shabby Wayne Rooney. Safe to say the Red Devils bounced back pretty well from that Burnley disaster with a 5-0 beatdown of Wigan.

And, of course, the Blues remain in at least a tie for first place with surprising Tottenham thanks to some nice combination work from Drogba and Anelka.

Previously-mentioned Burnley pulled off another upset, besting cellar-dwelling Everton 1-0. Portsmouth have the dubious honor of being the only 0-3 team so far this season.

Oh, and Jozy Altidore's debut for Hull City? We'll get to that later...
