On the Recap: Saturday Blues

When everybody ignored, he delivers
With three  players remaining, this weekend seem destined to be my first H2H loss after managed to stay unbeaten for the nine opening matches. My skepticism of Arsenal's players proved to be a correct one but I don't know why I still chose them (mainly for the two home games). Nani was the differential this week after assisted Vidic's header and scored a weird goal after a Gomes howler. Some more bad news, Van Der Vaart went off injured. Spurs visit The Reebok Stadium next and Devils welcome Wolves (a repeat of their Carling Cup match).

Fabregas seem crocked again (hamstring) based on the latest update. That's why Nasri got most of the free kick duties in their match. If not for the Robert Green agility (he saves ten mind you), Fabregas, Nasri and even Walcott could easily score more than two goals. The only goal scored by the unexpected scorer (Alex Song) assisted by the unexpected Gael Clichy. One thing for sure, West Ham didn't deserve to be last in the premiership.

Mr Mancini looked confused and rather embarrassed after his multi-million side lost to a very resolute Wolves side. I already warned you Mr Mancini, it could backfire (refer last post). Adebayor scored the only goal (penalty) for City and Wolves scorers; Nenad Milijas and David Edwards. This match proved yet again money can not buy success and Mccarthy men are the deserved winners. Next potential shock; The Hawthorns.

After back to back losses, most of the managers already discarded Clint Dempsey and out of the blue he scored a brace to be the highest scorer on Saturday with a massive 16 points. With Arsenal's form, I doubt nobody would captain him. Both assists were from defenders though (Baird & Salcido). Fulham to continue their form at home to Villa next.

The defending champion seem to has found their solidarity on away travels against Blackburn. They have to come from behind after Benjani Mwaruwari strike in the first half. El Drog provided the assist for Anelka to tap in the first goal and for the second week running Zhirkov created space for Branislav Ivanovic to head into the net for the winning goal. Bosingwa was nowhere to be seen. Beware; Mr Ancelotti want to slaughter The Kop next at Anfield ;D.

Yakubu scored the only goal for Everton since I don't know when to continue their unbeaten run for the whole of October. As predicted, clean sheet points for the defenders. Arteta managed to be fit and got the full bonus without providing any assist or goal. As usual, Cahill provided constant ammunition for the home side . Stoke were very unlucky with the disallowed goal by Tuncay.

Remaining matches resume tonight...

Latest update; The Mid-lands derby still a stalemate on the 85th loss seem certain
