The under-21 Premier League continues to provide plenty of talking points for fans as we review the latest results and the league positions in divisions one and two.

Friday September 19

Fulham and West Ham United shared the honours in the big London derby this time last week, with the home side giving Fulham fans something to shout about after a poor start for the senior team.

Two teams scored five goals on this day last week with Blackburn Rovers registering a big win against Stoke and Norwich winning 5-0 against Leicester.

Monday September 22

Wolves were edged out by Middlesbrough in one of four games to end in a 2-1 score, with West Brom beating Brighton, Sunderland edging out Spurs and Newcastle winning the top of the table clash away at Arsenal.

Bolton secured a comfortable 3-1 away win at Reading while Everton won by the same score away at Southampton.

The other match earlier this week on Monday saw Derby County confining Aston Villa’s youngsters to another defeat with a 3-2 score.

Thursday September 25

There was only one match yesterday and it was a big clash between Liverpool and Manchester City which didn’t leave out the excitement.

City won the match 4-3 although Patrick Vieira will be a little annoyed with the defence as City quickly went 2-0 up before allowing Liverpool back into the game at 2-2.

City moved back into a two goal lead through goals from Mathias Bossaerts and Jordi Hiwula.


Division One

Chelsea sit top of division one on nine points and with a two game cushion over Manchester City, who have moved up to second following their win against Liverpool.

Fulham, Manchester United and Liverpool all remain within two points of the league leaders.

Leicester remain bottom of the table as the only side not to get a point from games played so far.

Division Two

Newcastle United are the new league leaders in the next tier and they have a game in hand over Arsenal, which could stretch their lead even further. Middlesbrough and West Brom are joint second with nine points each.

At the other end of the table, Aston Villa are bottom with just two points from four games so far as they continue their search for a first win this season.
