Yohan Cabaye celebrates his winning goal at Old Trafford. Ferguson’s Old Trafford records fall as misery mounts of Moyes Manchester United are simply not the unstoppable force that they were under their previous manager. This weekend United suffered consecutive home defeats for the first time since 2002. Yohan Cabaye scored the games only goal as Newcastle United won at the home of the Champions for the first time since 1972. The result follows Everton’s midweek 1-0 victory at Old Trafford, their first league win there since 1992. West Brom also claimed a win at the Theatre of Dreams earlier this season, their first win there since 1978. At home this season United have only three wins from eight games, drawing two and losing three. It’s the Champions fifth loss of the season for David Moyes side in just 15 games. United have also only scored eight goals in eight home league games this season, fewer than bottom of the league Sunderland. The Magpies are flying high as yo-yo away form continues With all the talk focused on the mounting misery on Moyes it is easy to forget just how impressive Newcastle United were at Old Trafford. They defended calmly, took their chance, and saw out the time in the game left in a professional manner. Anyone watching Newcastle on Saturday could not be blamed for assuming that they must have played like this on the road all season. They would be wrong. The Magpies have four wins and four losses from eight games away from St James Park. In fact their away games follow a faultless yo-yo pattern in the Premier League: Loss, win, loss, win, loss, win, loss, win. Points mean Pulis When Ian Holloway left Crystal Palace they were 19th in the League with just one win all season. Since the appointment of Tony Pulis they have beaten Hull, West Ham and Cardiff while only losing to Norwich. Pulis has never been relegated as a manger as his blistering start to life with Palace shows he clearly has no intention of losing that record. This weekends result means that, of the 13 points Palace have this season, nine have come since Pulis signed the contract just four games ago. Chelsea are “in trouble” Not my words, the words of manager Jose Mourinho speaking to press after his side’s 3-2 defeat away at Stoke. Oussama Assaidi’s late winner gave the Potters the win against the odds and dealt a blow to Chelsea’s title challenge. Chelsea have already conceded more goals this season than they did in the entire of Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge. The season’s far from over for the Blues but they will have to improve to meet Jose’s high standards. The Arsenal Juggernaut is stoppable Saturday’s results had set the stage for Arsenal’s home game against Everton on Sunday afternoon. Manchester United and Chelsea had both lost while Manchester City had only managed a draw meaning that the Gooners had the chance to pull away from the majority of the title challenging pack. And when Mesut Ozil broke down a resilient Everton defence with just 10 minutes to go many thought that Arsenal had done exactly that. However, Everton substitute Gerard Deulofeu had other ideas. It was his his strike four minutes after Ozil’s goal which leveled the scores and pegged Arsenal back to a draw. The result means that their lead over the rest of the pack is only 5 points with Liverpool and Chelsea behind them by that margin.
