The Premier League's three o'clock kick-offs were very much games of two halves

After a dull set of first halves, the second 45 minutes proved much more entertaining.

The Premier League’s Saturday kick-offs were pretty quiet last week, and things looked to be going the same way this weekend too.

Not the most inspiring fixture list, eh?

Some clubs looked less likely to score than others.

And for a while it looked as though we’d entered a goal drought from which there was no return.

Robbie Savage summed it all up: “These games are horrendous.”

Don’t sit on the fence Robbie, tell us what you really think.

But by full time, the footballing landscape seemed entirely unrecognisable.

Yes, after just two goals in the first halves, a further 11 were scored in the next 45 minutes.

Players started breaking personal goal-scoring droughts…

… while Stoke gave us an away goal at last.

Own goals began popping up left and right.

And even relegated Sunderland got in on the action, much to Hull City’s displeasure.

We never doubted you, Premier League.
