5 lessons from the premier league: week 4
Champions Manchester city were held at stoke (1-1), blues had a goalless draw at loftus road, Liverpool salvage draw at sunderland (1-1), Norwich and westham fired blanks,Fulham spank WBA, spurs get first victory away to reading as Arsenal and United crush Soton and Lactics respectively.
- Chelsea needs a penalty to win. All the matches the blues has won this season had contained a penalty. No wonder Hazard wanted a penalty badly instead of a goal.
- Liverpool is yet to come to party. The draw at Sunderland sends Liverpool down and far away from the leaders. I wonder when they would click. The buys haven’t lived up to expectation. They have only Suarez
- This Arsenal is different: the 6-1 demolition of Southampton eulogies Wenger’s works and beliefs. It is worthy to note that city and united struggled against this soton side. The gunners were ruthless. Watch out.
- United don’t need rvp: fergie’s 4-0 win over wigan shows he doesn’t need rvp to carry his burden. Others can: buttner and powell. Many expected a tight win or a draw since rvp and rooney are injured.
- Nobody wants to forgive: Anton Ferdinard’s refusal to shake John Terry and Ashley Cole overshadowed the west London derby, reminding us of the Suarez-Evra incident. This will linger even if JT is cleared of the charges of racism by the FA. Expect Rio Ferdinard not to shake JT and Cole when they meet.
