Well, no surprise isn’t it? Again, Man Utd won again without playing well and were lucky to hold on after being nailed back by Bolton towards the end. Fergie was honest this time round saying he felt his team was lucky to hold on.
You do wonder how long will Man Utd continue picking up points playing this way. They have been more workman like rather than creative this season. That is no surprise for me after they lost CR7 and Tevez.

Elsewhere, Chelsea continue to bore all soccer fans with their display and I have to say Villa deserved the 3 points. The season seems to be turning out like the last; the teams seems to be getting de-railed after a good start to the season. I do hope Big Man Carlo can turn it round or he will be under loads of pressure.
The team’s play seems too one dimensional for me with the aging midfield and no width to the formation. Lampard seems to be out of sorts this season and his lack of goals must be a worry for the team.
Neutrals will definitely want Arsenal to win the league for the way they play the game. They seem to be picking up their form again after their double blow at Manchester. I do hope they can pick up the points and win the title as they are a team that deserves the league.
Everton’s struggles continues and Tottenham got a great win at Pompey.
Man City plays on Sunday and with Pool and Chelsea losing, they will be aiming for a win to edge closer to the top and strengthen their push for a top 4 position at least.
