IT’S BEEN a record-breaking day in the Barclays Premier League.

Sunderland and Stoke set the scene in the afternoon’s early kick-off as Tony Pulis’ men twice came from behind to snatch a dramatic 3-2 victory in added time.

The scoring didn’t stop with 38 goals in all creating a Premier League record.

The most astonishing game was at St James’ Park, where Newcastle trailed 4-0 to Arsenal at half-time but launched an astonishing comeback to draw 4-4, helped by two Joey Barton penalties.

Everton came from behind to win 5-3 at home to Blackpool - Louis Saha scoring four for the Merseysiders.

Spurs claimed a last-minute winner at home to Bolton, while Wigan were 4-3 winners at home to Blackburn and Aston Villa drew 2-2 at home to Fulham.

Man City kept up the pressure on leaders and neighbours Manchester United with a 3-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion, who were the only team not to score.

Carlos Tevez’s first-half hat-trick included two penalties.
