Benayoun goes wild (EPL roundup)

Got to show some love for my fellow Israeli Yossi Benayoun, who netted a hat-trick in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Burnley last weekend.

In other EPL news, Tim Howard and Everton stay in the drop zone, but Clint Dempsey's Fulham scored a big win thanks to a turn-back-the-clock day for Damien Duff. Chelsea got a miracle extra-time winner to stay perfect (still on top wire-to-wire).

Credit big wins also to the two teams from Manchester -- United over Tottenham 3-1 and City over Arsenal 4-2.

I'll have more on the Adebayor debacle later.

Here are the results.

Portsmouth 2-3 Bolton (A: 17,564)
Blackburn 3-1 Wolverhampton (A: 24,845)
Wigan 1-0 West Ham (A: 17,142)
Liverpool 4-0 Burnley (A: 43,817)
Stoke City 1-2 Chelsea (A: 27,440)
Sunderland 4-1 Hull City (A: 38,997)
Manchester City 4-2 Arsenal (A: 47,339)
Tottenham 1-3 Manchester United (A: 35,785)

Birmingham 0-1 Aston Villa (A: 25,196)
Fulham 2-1 Everton (A: 24,191)
