The Goalkeepers association of the Premier League have been congratulated by the Special one in their contribution to gifting maximum three points to Chelsea. Spokesman of the Goalies have reiterated their effort to make sure Chelsea get all maximum points even if they are fatigued and without Costa and Remy. A couple of goalies in the red half of London and red half of Manchester have revolted seeing that their teams have a mathematical chance of catching up with Chelsea.
Aaron Ramsey’s 11th minute goal gifted Arsenal a 1-0 victory away to Burnley. The Wales midfielder found the roof of the net in the 11th minute after Mesut Ozil’s shot was saved and Alexis’ follow-up ricocheted off two defenders. In a game where Olivier Giroud had his 100th Premier League start, Ramsey got the goods delivered on his 150th Arsenal appearance.
The game had its twist and turns but you must applaud the services of Nacho Monreal and the latest detective in town: Coquelin. They kept Burnley at bay with Ospina pulling at saves to keep his clean sheet. Szczesny will only wait till the beginning of next season to see if he could usurp the Colombian. Hard earned 3 points, though not as fluid-y as against Liverpool.
The Manchester derby was talk of the town but the blue side came out losers in a 6 goal encounter. Aguero grabbed a brace but the Devils kept the pressure on Arsenal in the race to the end of the season. The Red Devils are a point behind the Gunners and will hope to continue the chase till after game week 38.
How Manchester City have been sliding without brakes is alarming. The 4-2 loss to their red neighbours have drawn them into the 4th place trophy challenge with Liverpool and Southampton who are 4 and 5 points away respectively. Will City be in the Champions League? Will Pellegrini be sacked? Some school of thoughts say they have caught the 4th place bug from Arsenal seeing that they bought a good number of 4th placing players from Ashburton Grove.
Talking of Champions League, Madrid will be on fire tonight with Atletico Madrid hosting Real Madrid in the first leg of the Quarterfinals. Hopefully Atletico proves a point tonight. Other fixtures can be found this info-graphics from Ivan J.
For now, have a good game in Madrid. For the Gunners, don’t stop dreaming.
