6 of the Best Moments From Week Two of the Barclays Premier League

Another Premier League weekend has passed and it's left us with plenty to talk about.

There was an impressive debut goal scored by a new Premier League summer-signing, one of the most theatrical dives of the season from a repeat offender and many more incidents that were among the best moments from week two of the greatest league in the world.

6. Best Vine

Alan Pardew using interpretive dance to tell his team to play with a smile.

Sometimes words can’t describe the hilarity of what you’re seeing, but Newcastle manager Alan Pardew makes the best Vine of the week following his intriguing way of telling his players to play with a simile in the 0-0 draw against Aston Villa.

5. Best Game

Everton 2-2 Arsenal

Four goals scored, a 90th minute equaliser and controversy throughout, Everton’s 2-2 against Arsenal has to be the best game of the weekend.

The Toffees’ second goal should have been flagged for being offside, but for a previous foul in the build-up, while Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could have been sent off for a dangerous tackle on Gareth Barry during the game too.

4. Best Dive

Ashley Young’s dive against Sunderland.

When things are going poorly on the pitch, there’s nothing worse than seeing your own player humiliated for simulation.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young was booked for one of the most theatrical dives in the area this weekend when the England international failed to fool the referee he was genuinely tripped.

As he has done in the past, Young left his leg out to make contact with Sunderland’s Wes Brown and flung himself to the turf in a desperate attempt to win a spot-kick.

3. Best Goal

West Ham new-boy Mauro Zarate scoring the opener against Crystal Palace.

West Ham striker Mauro Zarate was an unused substitute in the Hammers’ first game of the season. However, he started against Crystal Palace a week later and didn’t let his manager down.


After the ball was cleared to the edge of the box, Zarate fired a low first-time volley under pressure that beat Julian Speroni in goal. His celebration was almost as good as the goal itself.

2. Best Assist

Romelu Lukaku running 50 yards before slipping through Steven Naismith for an Everton goal.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku showed exactly why the Toffees paid so much for his signature this summer.


The former Chelsea man won the ball from Per Mertesacker in his own half and evaded the sliding challenge from Calum Chambers before expertly slipping through Steven Naismith to score Everton’s second goal of the game.

1. Best Save

Thibaut Courtois’s save from Leicester striker Dave Nugent’s one-on-one.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois justified his manager‘s faith in him after making a terrific stop to thwart Leicester City striker David Nugent, who was through on goal.


The Belgian raced off his line to close down the angle and by making himself look big he managed to block the shot for a corner.

Against many other Premier League goalkeepers, Nugent would have scored on the weekend.
