SPURS SPIKES GUNNERS

On Saturday from my club level seat at Emirates Stadium I witnessed an extraordinary football match between these two fierce rivals. Arsenal had established what looked like an unassailable 2 – 0 lead by half time, only to lose in dramatic style 2 – 3. It’s actually difficult to assess exactly how it happened even though I was there. For long periods in both halves Arsenal had comfortable possession with Fabregas, Arshavin, and Nasri in total control. Tottenham scored early in the second half on the counter attack, there was an element of luck with the penalty award for their second and the third was a well taken header from a dangerous cross.  But I don’t think there were more than those three attempts on the Arsenal goal, but they all found the back of the net.  In post match conference Wenger was in utter disbelief that his side had lost the match – the team really need to bounce back straightaway from this shocking  loss. Three league defeats already this season at Emirates for Arsenal is not title winning form, only consolation is that all other title contenders keep dropping points too.

Liverpool badly needed a win after their recent mini revival had faltered. With Gerrard out through injury and with bottom of the table West Ham their opponents I thought an upset might be on the cards. It was not to be and a convincing win sees them rise to ninth in the table.

Manchester United took care of business with minimum of fuss with a 2 – 0 home win over Wigan, and go joint top of the league with Chelsea. Still no losses for United, the only undefeated team in the division.

Chelsea suffered a shock defeat against Birmingham at St Andrews. All does not seem well at the Bridge at the moment, coaching assistant and club legend Wilkins has been sacked, Ancelotti doesn’t seem to have been consulted on the decision, and the team is suffering a severe dip in form. Keeps the league interesting though, at one stage it looked like a one horse race.

Manchester City found some flair yesterday and thrashed Fulham FC at Craven Cottage 4 – 1. Mark Hughes would have loved to beat his old club but his Fulham side were not good enough and a battle with relegation looms.

Champions League football this week !
