Added-Time takes a look back at BPL action, this week, Chelsea and Manchester United played to a hard fought draw, Cardiff City earned the best win of the early season in their Premier League home debut and Arsenal got their campaign on track with a dominant performance at Craven Cottage. Lonzo Ball Pelicans Jersey . Manchester United made their first start at home with new manager David Moyes at the helm and he in turn made the decision to start Wayne Rooney in front of the supporters against Chelsea. Rooney was one of three attacking threats that started the game for United, as he was in the lineup along-side both Robin van Persie and Danny Wellbeck. "Hes been great in training and anybody who was watching might have seen a slightly leaner-looking Wayne," said Moyes. "I thought he worked back, he tackled, he chased. I think Wayne has a positive mind at the moment." Despite having all of that offensive power on the pitch, United was not able to find the breakthrough for a goal that would have brought life to a match that ended in a 0-0 draw. Chelsea, meanwhile, went the other way leaving all of their recognized strikers on the bench, with only Fernando Torres eventually making his way into the match. Juan Mata was kept on the sidelines by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who with the point earned in this contest, find themselves at the top of the table though having played one more game than the majority of the teams. "I think for us, after two home victories, to come to the champions in their first match at home and get a point, I think its fine, its positive," said Mourinho. Playing in their all-time first home Premier League fixture, many would have thought Cardiff City was out of their depth against title contending Manchester City. Many would be proven wrong. Fraizer Campbell converted two second-half corners and his team held on for a thrilling 3-2 victory, their first in the top-flight of English soccer in over 50 years. "Well be the underdogs for a lot of the games this season but, as we showed, weve got great determination and hopefully thatll see us through," said Campbell. "The most special thing was getting the three points. When youre a promoted side, you dont want to wait too long to get any points on the board so today was a massive bonus for us." Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko fired home a beautiful opener and it looked as though his side would complete the victory as expected, however after Aron Gunnarsson leveled the score Cardiff took over the game. Taking advantage of poor defensive marking in the box and positional play by keeper Joe Hart, Campbell took control of the match and captured the upset for the home-side. Looking to bounce back from a very poor opening match, Lukas Podolski fired home twice and Olivier Giroud also was on target as Arsenal dispatched Fulham 3-1. "Its never easy to play away or win away and we did it in a convincing way," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. "We had a disappointing result against Villa and it was important to respond." Arsenal never looked in danger of losing as they controlled the action from start to finish, with keeper Wojciech Szczesny turning away a few Adel Taarabt chances. Fulhams Darren Bent did pull one back in the 77th minute, but it was not enough to change the result of the contest. In other action, Liverpool, Stoke City, Hull City and Tottenham were also winners in Barclays Premier League action. With a few days left in the transfer window, there are still a few interesting names that are rumoured to be on the move. The most talked about of these is Tottenhams Gareth Bale, who despite many stories to the contrary, has yet to complete his move to Real Madrid or any other club for that matter. The latest word out of White Hart Lane is that the team has received new bids for the player from other teams interested in his services. Its also possible that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is delaying the process as long as possible because he is upset at Real Madrids actions in regards to them acting as though the deal has already been finished. While the process is taking place, Bale continues to sit out of Tottenhams lineup and now he is also not taking part in practices.Three BPL games will air on TSN and TSN2 on Saturday. The action kicks off on TSN, where Manchester City will take on Hull at 7am et/4am pt. Following that game there is a doubleheader on TSN2, first, West Ham will lock up against Stoke City at 9:30am et/6:30am pt. and finally, Crystal Palace will battle Sunderland at Noon et/9am pt. Zion Williamson Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. JJ Redick Pelicans Jersey . The Raptors had an early deadline Sunday, a dreaded afternoon game, and they left the bulk of their work until the last minute, as theyve done so many times before. https://www.pelicanslockerroom.com/Kenrich-Williams-City-Edition-Jersey/ . - After three days of light, make that very light, workouts, Team Irvin and Team Carter are ready for tonights Pro Bowl. PITTSBURGH -- Expanded instant replay has a new fan in Starling Marte. At least, that is, when the Pittsburgh Pirates are on the right side of it. The speedy outfielder was called out, then ruled safe on a replay review with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Pirates over San Francisco 2-1 Tuesday night and ending the Giants six-game winning streak. It was 1-all when Marte tripled off the right-field wall against Tim Hudson. Marte slid into third, got up and bolted home when the relay from second baseman Ehire Adrianza skipped by third baseman Pablo Sandoval for an error. Sandoval recovered to throw home and plate umpire Quinn Wolcott initially ruled Marte was tagged by San Francisco catcher Buster Posey. A brief review showed Martes right hand touched the plate before Poseys glove swiped Martes chest. Marte joked he likes replay "sometimes" but never doubted which way the call would go one the umpires took a longer look. "I know I was safe," Marte said. "It was just about waiting for the umpire to make the decision." Pirates manager Clint Hurdle raced out of the dugout to challenge the call. He wasnt sure at the time whether Marte was safe for not, but figured Marte deserved the benefit of the doubt. "Its an aggressive play," Hurdle said. "We continue to talk about being aggressive. We cant use the safety brakes." A night after rallying from a six-run deficit to win a five-hour, 13-inning marathon, the Giants were stunned when Martes drive and Adrianzas miscue ruined an otherwise spectacular effort from Hudson (4-2). The veteran right-hander allowed two runs on five hits in 8 2-3 innings, striking out five and walking one. The only Pirate to advance past second base over the final seven innings was Marte. "Replay is going to provide the final conclusion," Hudson said. "It is what it is and youve got to accept it. But its frustrating to be to the end of a call that cost you the ballgame. Ive seen calls that were closer than that but werent overturned." Tony Watson (3-0) worked around two singles in the ninth to earn the win. Marte scored both Pittsburgh runs and Ike Davis added two hits as the Pirates won ffor just the fourth time in their last 13 games. Zylan Cheatham Jersey. Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton pitched eight sparkling innings, giving up one unearned run and three hits, walking two and striking out three. "The pitches he made to the top four hitters, theyre as good as Ive seen him make," Hurdle said. "He had those guys, there were some hard at-bats. There was good pitching. He hit his spots, changed his speed." Both teams were looking for length out of their starters after San Franciscos 11-10 the night before left their bullpens taxed. Going deep into games hasnt been a problem for Hudson, who worked with his typical efficiency while giving the relievers some needed down time. The 38-year-old has thrown at least seven innings in all seven of his starts this season. He had little trouble getting through eight innings, keeping the Pirates off-balance with his typically impeccable control. Marte reached on an infield single with one out in the second and moved to third on a single just inside the first-base bag by Davis before scoring on a groundout by Tony Sanchez. San Franciscos only run came in the second as Sanchezs throwing issues from behind the plate resurfaced. Brandon Belt hit a leadoff single, stole second and moved to third when Sanchezs throw sailed into shallow centre field. Belt scored on Adrianzas sacrifice fly. NOTES: Pirates LHP Wandy Rodriguez was rocked in his second rehab start while recovering from right knee inflammation. Rodriguez, who is eligible to come off the disabled list, gave up seven runs in 5 1-3 innings, striking out four and walking three while surrendering two home runs at Double-A Altoona. ... The Giants called up RHP reliever George Kontos from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday and sent Jake Dunning back to the minors. Kontos had a 4.91 ERA in 18 1-3 innings in Fresno. ... San Francisco LHP reliever David Huff, on the disabled list since April 21 a strained left quad, could begin a rehab assignment at Triple- A Fresno on Thursday.
