On the Recap: Oh My Saturday

Uncharacteristically wasteful
As expected Chelsea won but the predicted drubbing of Wolves was way off. Chelsea could have won with a bigger margin if not for the casualness of El-Drog in front of goal. Maybe he was a little bit rusty after two weeks layoff. But give credit to Mccarthy's men for their unexpected compactness on the road. Only four points for captaining him (including me) and congrats if you chose the likes of Messrs. Malouda. Ashley Cole again got maximum bonus in back to back matches by not scoring a goal/assist as he was a constant menace on the left flank. Bosingwa looked a threat again on the right and the super-sub Kalou did the trick for how many times I don't remember to wrap up the score. Special mention to the performance of Yuri Zhirkov. Caution; Chelsea got two straight away assignment next.

The threat of Gareth Bale was appreciated by David Moyes as he put both Seamus Coleman and Phil Neville in a secret mission to nullify him. He seemed anonymous as the proven combo of Crouch and Van Der Vaart worked out the equalising goal after Heurelho Gomes did nothing to prevent Baines free kick goal. Spurs will also be on the road for both of their next matches. Next destination; Old Trafford.

WHAM vs NEW, WBA vs FUL, WIG vs BOL, SUN vs AST. On these four matches; if you ask me it could go either way to be honest. SUN still toothless on the front (Dunne own goal proved the difference), NEW again won their match when everybody expect them to do otherwise, WBA still got something up their sleeves without the assistance of Mr Odemwingie while the only draw was at the DW Stadium. Johan Elmander got his fifth 'away' goals in as many matches by cancelling out Hugo Rodallega strike. Chris Brunt again stars in West Brom 2-1 win to climb fourth of the premiership table. All three goals scored by their own players; Youssuf Mulumbu, Marc Antoine Fortune and Scott Carson (own goal). Newcastle managed to win away in London courtesy of goals from Nolan and Carroll while The Hammers solitary strike was scored by Carlton Cole.

BLP draw a blank at the St Andrews as Charlie Adam went off injured. Check the injury news for the update. As a result, defensive points for BIR defenders particularly for Liam Ridgewell who scored one goal in their 2-0 win. The giant Zigic scored the second goal for the Brums to concede Blackpool to a second consecutive defeats. On the higher note, they got two back to back home games in their upcoming fixture.

The remaining captain material tonight are Tevez, Mr Nani and the fit-again Fabregas. Wait for tomorrow news...
