Last Updated: 10/11/18 7:53pm
Cardiff and Newcastle claimed valuable victories at the bottom of the Premier League on Saturday, while Charlie Austin launched an astonishing attack on the match officials after Southampton’s 1-1 draw with Watford…
In the early kick-off, Neil Warnock celebrated his 100th game as Cardiff manager with a 2-1 victory over 10-man Brighton.
The Seagulls were a man down for almost an hour with Dale Stephens shown a straight red for a challenge on Greg Cunningham after Callum Paterson had cancelled out Lewis Dunk’s early header.
Cardiff had to wait until the 90th minute for a winner, Sol Bamba finally putting the ball into the net after the hosts had twice struck the woodwork in a dramatic finish.
High-flying Bournemouth were beaten 2-1 by Newcastle at St James’ Park and lost Adam Smith to a serious-looking knee injury.
Smith received oxygen on the pitch after going down as he prepared to take a free-kick. Newcastle were already ahead thanks to Salomon Rondon’s first Premier League goal of the season in the seventh minute, and he doubled the lead in the 40th minute.
Jefferson Lerma pulled one back in eight minutes of first-half stoppage time but Newcastle hung on to climb out of the bottom three.
Manolo Gabbiadini’s first goal of the campaign gave Saints the lead in the 20th minute and Hooper’s first contentious decision came when he denied Watford a penalty after Ryan Bertrand appeared to take out Nathaniel Chalobah.
Less than 10 minutes later, Austin thought he had doubled Southampton’s advantage only for Hooper to rule it out, and Jose Holebas equalised eight minutes from time.
The result prompted striker Austin to call the decision-making “a joke”, adding “clearly they need help”.
Tottenham made it seven wins from their last eight away games with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.
Juan Foyth was the hero for Spurs, heading home the winner in the second half while Alexander Sorloth spurned a brilliant late chance to snatch a draw.
There was plenty of emotion on show but no goals at the King Power Stadium as Leicester paid tribute to late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha ahead of a 0-0 draw with Burnley.
It was a point apiece, too, at Huddersfield, where they were denied a second victory of the week by Felipe Anderson’s equaliser for West Ham.
Alex Pritchard gave Huddersfield, who claimed their first win of the season against Fulham on Monday, the lead in only the sixth minute but Anderson continued his hot streak to make it 1-1 16 minutes from time.
