On the Recap: Saturday Upsets

Spurs destiny is in his hands
Surprise...surprise...Top two teams unexpectedly crumbled in this week recap. These were the highlights:-

Three Points Lost...Arsenal surprisingly lost to very determined Spurs after leading two goals up and lost the chance to overtake Chelsea; VDV got two assists and one penalty; Bale got one and the winning goal scored by Younes Kaboul; Fabregas was very influential and managed to assist Nasri wonderful goal; Chamakh again continued to score; The Spurs comeback outshone The Fab Machine.

The Reebok Punishment...What did I tell you, the Bolton punishment did happened (Refer On the Forecast Gameweek 14); Davies scored two penalties and assisted one to register sixteen fantasy points; Hot stuff Elmander came second with identical goals and assist; Skillful Lee Chung-Yong netted another one for the home side while Andy Carroll scored for Newcastle to destroy the home side clean sheet points; Bolton players are indeed a profitable acquisition in the coming weeks.

Berba-less Victory...Nani did nothing in terms of scoreline but again influential throughout in the 2-0 win against nine men Wigan; Goals scored by Evra and Hernandez assisted by Park Ji Sung and Rafael respectively; Solid defensive points for the home side; Berbatov was nowhere to be seen. For your info, the sent off victims; Alcaraz & Rodallega.

Hopeless Hammers...Gerrard-less Liverpool surprised us managers again by winning comfortably at home to West Ham; Liverpool were too good or Hammers were hopeless?; Maybe the latter fit the occasion as pressure on Avram Grant mounts; I expect a little fight by them; 3-0 scoreline scored by a reborn again Glen Johnson, Dirk Kuyt and Maxi Rodriguez; The only outstanding Hammer; Rob Green.

Stoke Success...Jon Walters of Stoke (again, who?) scored two in successive minutes after coming on as a sub against unrecognisable West Brom; Odemwingie looked rusty again and only Mulumbu stand out; Credit to Soccernet as they identified that this fixture failed to produce a single shot in the opening 45 minutes; Typical Stoke; Matthew Etherington scored the first of two penalties early on.

Tame Wolves...Wolves were behind again after just five minutes at Blackpool after Luke Varney scored another contender for goal of the season from the left wing position; Despite the injury news, Charlie Adam orchestrated the team play; Kevin Doyle scored too late his first goal of the season after Marlon Harewood headed the second goal in the first half; Wolves was again impressive when trailing but they need to improve on the conceding aspect.

Fortress Foster...The shock of the day; The Champion was humbled by not Birmingham (Goal by Bowyer) but Foster; He deserved the maximum points after repelling barrage of attacks after attacks from Drogba (Give him another chance, managers!) & Co.; Normally, teams who played so defensively against the  former champion will get punished but it was not to be Chelsea's day; They already lost two consecutive matches and that makes me wonder, Ray Wilkins (Assistant manager) influence did affected them so much; Maybe too much for a champion.
