On the Recap: Midweek Hangover

Handsome reward  indeed
Element of suspense surrounds the English Premier League title quest after The Red Devils were denied a victory by Newcastle; Maybe they got a bit carried away after FA Cup loss against City; Rooney & Chicaharito lead the attack; The latter received a yellow for diving; As usual, Sir Alex was fuming with the referee while FA recommended the ref for the FA Cup final, well done sir; Berbatov was amusingly left out due to illness; In terms of fantasy, United defense recorded a rare away clean sheet;

Weekend happenings
United loss to their noisy neighbor in the FA Cup semis - Yaya took advantage of United scapegoat (Carrick) mistake - Hold on to deny United treble - Silva was impressive yet again - Special credit to England No. 1 goalkeeper also

Trotters humiliated by Potters - Elmander & Co really missed the Sturridge effect - Etherington, Huth, Pennant & JWalters all performed admirably in their 5-star show - A rare non-physical set piece reliance Stoke performance

A good omen for their upcoming double games and a rather complicated route to Europe for the top six as well as the winner and the loser of FA Cup (I will get some time to explain on this scenario later) - This is the basis of Redknapp's objection to the proposed premiership game between the FA Cup's finalists to be played after the final

Relegation fight
Wigan leapfrogged The Tangerines from the bottom to 17th - Everybody know how to play with CAdam nowadays - A bit harsh for Hammers after a last minute loss to Villa - Blackburn surrendered tamely at the Merseyside - These three are now officially the frontrunners for relegation 

Another heartbreak season?

Newcastle & Villa look safe after reaching the 40 points barrier - Sunderland are spiraling down the table after succumbing to a kind loss to Birmingham - Everton are experiencing a rather too obvious end of season peak form - A trusted Nando-less formation put Baggies to their first defeat under Hodgson - Drog & Lamps scored big while Nando's scored a disallowed goal 

Tale of two penalties
Kuyt penalty cancelled out VPersie own to register a last minute thriller at the Emirates - A heartbreak for Wenger after the draw but that was before they know last night result - Liverpool under Dalglish's reign recorded an impressive feat by staying unbeaten against all the famous oppositions in the league

Gunners dropped yet another points and to rub yet another salt to their wound is Chelsea meteoric rise to the second place replacing them at the moment; As expected, a north London derby thriller with a VDV revival; What can we digest over last night 'tragedy'?;

Winners; Chelsea - Drog & Malouda (a brace) - VDV (another brace) - Walcott - Kalou
Losers; Arsenal & Spurs - Chelsea defense particularly Luiz - Nando El Nino 

Preparation for the next double starts now...
