Delight for Kean as Blackburn beat Arsenal

Ayegbeni Yakubu scored twice on his Blackburn Rovers FC debut as Steve Kean's team gained their first league win at the expense of Arsenal FC on a day when the three promoted clubs won.

Blackburn Rovers FC came from behind twice to defeat Arsenal FC 4-3 at Ewood Park and earn their first Premier League victory of the season.

Two debut goals from Ayegbeni Yakubu helped Steve Kean's side win a game in which Gervinho and Mikel Arteta scored their first goals for the Gunners. Blackburn trailed 2-1 to those efforts at half-time but parity was restored when Alex Song put into his own net from Rubén Rochina's free-kick.

Another own goal, this time from Laurent Koscielny, increased Blackburn's lead to 4-2 before Marouane Chamakh's late header for Arsène Wenger's team, who have conceded 14 goals in their five league games.

It was a good day for the three promoted clubs, with Swansea City FC beating West Bromwich Albion FC, Norwich City FC winning 2-1 at Bolton Wanderers FC and Queens Park Rangers FC coming away from Wolverhampton Wanderers FC with a 3-0 victory.

Aston Villa FC and Newcastle United FC remain unbeaten after the teams drew 1-1, while Everton FC overcame Wigan Athletic FC 3-1. Manchester United FC host Chelsea FC and Fulham FC entertain Manchester City FC in two of four fixtures on Sunday.
