On the Recap: Sunday's Turning Points

Very tasty 'Chicharito'z anyone?
English Premier League Rule No. 57; Never play Arsenal with ten men. That's what happened when one of your centerbacks was sent off in the fifth minute. Arsenal's free-flowing football  proved too much for Mancini's men to handle. He said afterwords "We could have won with 11 players". You are truly right Mr Mancini. The score speaks itself on Arsenal's performance and even Senior Fabregas afforded to miss the penalty to bring home only four points for those who captained him. The star of the day was Samir Nasri who scored one and assisted one for sub Nicklas Bendtner. Another goal scored by Arsenal's midfield dynamo Alexander Song. Tevez got a disappointing one point after he took a knock (wait for injury update) and was substituted close to sixty minutes. For gameweek 10, bringing one or two of Arsenal's boys are recommended due to their double home game against WHAM and NEW. Other teams with back to back home games; FUL, BLA, BLP, BOL and MANU.

Liverpool finally played well at Anfield by winning 2-1 against stubborn Blackburn. All three goals were scored by Liverpool as El-Nino finally got his second goal of the season in all competitions that proved to be the winner. Sotirios Kyrgiakos headed the first goal as Jamie Carragher equalised for Blackburn soon after. Good overall performance by The Reds particularly for Raul Meireles in midfield.

The so called Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez produced his best performance in Manchester United shirt by scoring two wonder goals. He looks to play the next game until the wealthy Rooney recovers. This was the first MANU away win of the season as they matched Stoke tactical play with their own version of physical approach. As a result, less points for both Berba (2) and Nani (3). The next two home games will change all that of course. Nani and Co. will play Van Der Vaart Spurs next followed by a visit by Wolves. O'Shea got full clean sheet points as he was subbed before the team conceded, lucky me. 

Ten teams involve in the round 4 of Carling Cup with three all premiership fixtures. The main focus will be The Gunners visit to St James Park. Other fixtures; West Ham entertain Stoke and the Red Devils welcome the hungry Wolves.
