Video highlights: Burnley defeat Manchester Utd, Spurs embarass Hull

A crazy night for Premier League football

Burnley 1/ Manchester Utd 0 (mit Deutsch Kommentar, ja!)
When The Spoiler went to bed last night, Burnley had beaten reigning champions Manchester Utd for the first time in 41 years, Tottenham were top of the league and all three promoted sides had won their midweek games. We woke up this morning and discovered we hadn’t transported to some sort of football parallel universe, but that the Premier League is already shaping up as one of the most exciting in years.

Muchos congrats to Burnley, who thoroughly deserved three points in their first Premier League match. Will this result cause Sir Alex to dip into the transfer market?

Spoiler bonus: Highlights of all the other Premiership games after the jump, including Jermain Defoe’s hat-trick at the KC and Birmingham’s win over doomed Pompey…

Hull 1/ Tottenham 5

Liverpool 4/ Stoke 0

Birmingham 1/ Portsmouth 0

    We’ve had a lot of false dawns at the lane…. BUT I REFUSE TO LEARN FROM THEM!

    TOTTENHAM TOP 4! SPURS FOR THE TITLE! COME ON YOU SPURS!

    *ahem*

    Seriously, Defoe’s on fire, Keane is playing excellently and our midfield is one of the best I’ve seen at Spurs – Modric, Palacios, Huddlestone, Lennon.

    Add to that the solid defense we have with B.A.E King, Basson, Corluka – even with both Woodgate and Dawson injured and we’ve got a quality team all over the outfield.
