Swansea stun Arsenal, Hughes gets off to a winning start against Newcastle (not)

Today's EPL Results:

Newcastle United 1 QPR 0
Striker Leon Best scored the only goal of the match in the 37th minute as the hosts beat new manager Mark Hughes and Rangers.
Newcastle move above Liverpool and are now currently level on points with 5th place Arsenal.
QPR move down into 18th place and manager Mark Hughes has to step up if he wants to save QPR from relegation.....

Best: Bends beautifully to stop Hughes' men in the 37th minute.

Swansea City 3 Arsenal 2
What. A. Match.
Record attendance at The Liberty Stadium as 13th Swansea hosted 5th Arsenal.
Captain Robin Van Persie gave the visitors an early lead in the 4th minute after striking past Michel Vorm into the bottom corner of the net. Nathan Dyer was allegedly fouled by Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey inside the box, and was awarded a penalty. Striker Scott Sinclair slotted past Szczesny. Nathan Dyer's sweet strike flew past Arsenal's defence after 56 minutes to give The Swans the lead for the first time. Theo Walcott sprinted past the Swansea defence before chipping Vorm to make it 2-2. They say that you are yor most vulnerable when you have just scored, and Danny Graham captalized on Arsenal's complacent manner by running into the box before tapping the ball past Szczesny. The Gunners were desperate to get back in the match, and made all 3 subs with Henry coming on, but they were outplayed by the 6th best passing football team in the world.

Arsenal: Out for the count.....

Europa League here we come.
