From London to Manchester, Brighton to Bamako, there were tales of victory for the teams in blue as they painted the world of football with their majestic colour.
Emery’s quest to record his first win for Arsenal was dashed by Marcos Alonso after the Gunners battled from 2-0 down to equalize before half time. Mkhitaryan started the comeback for Arsenal before Alex Iwobi drew Arsenal level. Alonso grabbed all three points for Chelsea to ensure 100% win for Sarri in the Premier League.
In spite of the defeat to the Blues at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal’s Guendouzi stood out with a good display. There are questions over Xhaka, Aubameyang and Ozil but the Gunners can take positives from the 2 goals scored.
In Manchester, Aguero was in fine form and had a hattrick for himself as City whitewashed Huddersfield 6-1. Another title for Pep? The red half of Manchester were defeated at Brighton in Leon Balogun’s debut for the home side. The Red Devils lost 3-2 to the Brighton and Hove Albion, who were dressed in their white and blue stripes.
In Bamako, two time African Champions, Enyimba recorded their 1st ever away victory in the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup. A late penalty converted by Farouk Mohammed gave The Peoples Elephant the available three points and a 1-0 win over Djoliba AC. Theophilus Afelokhai was the man of the match pulling saves upon saves to deny the Malians.
Enyimba FC are now 2nd on the table with only a game left to play in the group. They need a win in their last game to secure passage to the group stage. Will they play that game at their newly laid Enyimba Stadium? Have you seen the pictures?
