Round 11 saw Sunderland come away with their first, much needed, win of the season over Bournemouth. Despite an early lead by the Cherries thanks to Dan Gosling, Sunderland fought back with Victor Anichebe’s goal in the 33rd minute followed by a penalty shot by Jermaine Defoe.


Elsewhere in the Premier League saw Manchester City draw 1-1 with Middlesborough, West Ham fared the same against Stoke and old foes Arsenal also drew 1-1 with Tottenham. With all these draws, expect Round 12 to be very interesting with lots of sides hungry for the win in their next match.


Manchester United took home a convincing 3-1 win over Swansea despite four straight Premier League losses in the previous rounds. The team were untouchable from the start, going 3-0 up by half time thanks to one from the formidable Paul Pogba and two from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Swansea’s Mike van der Hoorn scored their first and only goal half way through the second half but it just wasn’t enough and United proved far too strong for the Swans. Amusingly, Jose Mourinho was forced to watch the match from the stands after receiving a touchline ban – perhaps he’ll calm down now after this very welcome win?


After a week off play, round 12 starts at 10PM AEDT on Saturday 19th November with Manchester United taking on Arsenal at Old Trafford. Will United be able to keep up the momentum and come away with a second win in a row or will Arsenal seal the deal after their disappointing draw last round? Tune into Optus Sport 1 to find out.

Brilliant, so the only way i can watch Liverpool is to get up in the middle of the night on Sunday morning, take the day off from work on Tuesday or stay up until midnight on Thursday. Great planning. Ahy not put it on on Sunday morning between 9-11?

Somebody used their brain when creating replay times for the Watford v Hull match.


For the other two matches, they didn't. Seriously, think about it. Putting them on when people are at work or asleep? 


As if it's not bad enough that we don't get certain matches on-demand, but we get another slap in the face if we are wanting to catch up on it later in the day/week.


I keep waiting and hoping common sense will prevail. It's tiring.

Hey @Drumso, thanks for your feedback. The replay times are determined by our Content team, we can definitely provide feedback on your behalf. If you have a Fetch TV gen 2 or 3 set top box you can record the replays also.

What is it that determines which replays are on demand and which aren't?

Very disappointed to log on to watch Liverpool Crystal palace replay only to find out it's not on demand. Then read something about each team having nine games not on demand per season as part of the deal which is fair enough. Then found out that Optus shows games which are not on demand on the Optus channel which made sense. Then checked schedule and the only two replays are Tuesday at 2pm and Thursday at 3am. Are you serious? That is ridiculous. It should be replayed on a Sunday afternoon or evening. In fact all games not on demand should be replayed the same day at a reasonable time. I.e. - not 3am in the morning.


Have been impressed with the coverage so far but this doesn't make sense and is very disappointing considering that I was looking forward to watching the match tonight. By the way, I have the fetch mini so don't have the option to record.


Think your content team don't quite understand the EPL culture

Please dont patronise drumso by telling him he can record it if he has fetch tv. I'm sure he knows. just say sorry for the inconvenience and move on.

Also, many people like me cannot record because we are only able to use Fetch-TV mini. Optus will not sell other recording Fetch-TV boxes to customers not on broadbank packages. It's insane considering that not all games are on demand and replays are not shown for days (and they of course cannot be recorded either).

Are all replay times in AEDST? Which is Sydney and Melbourne time at the moment.
