Blues to the rescue
Yes!! The unthinkable has finally happened. Manchester City (that’s right) have lost their first game of the season to the delight of the rest of the chasing pack. The whole country thought the title was going to be City’s again by Christmas but thanks to Chelsea, the title race has been blown wide open.
The blues took on the unbeaten champions at Stamford bridge and needed to win having lost their previous two outings. City on the other hand would have been full of confidence as they’ve been in impressive form all season. However the day belonged to Sarri and Chelsea as the blues boss masterminded a result that will long be remembered at Stamford bridge for years to come.
Goals from Kante and Luiz ensured the blue part of West London and not Manchester would be celebrating. Chelsea played very well and created chances whilst City not only missed chances but they were also missing talisman Aguero (the sooner they get him back the better). The match ended 2-0 and I am pretty certain that City will bounce back from the blip.
The result at Stamford bridge meant Liverpool remained top of the table having played in the earlier kick off against Bournemouth. Mo Salah was at his absolute best, scoring a hat-trick with Cook scoring an own goal to give Liverpool a well deserved 4-0 victory against the South-coast outfit.
There were no pitch invasion antics from Klopp this time but rest assured the manager and players alike mean business. Can Liverpool stay at the top or will City return to the summit? (Questions,questions). Things have started unfolding at the top and it will be a hell of a good Christmas as we watch the drama unfold.
Elsewhere, Spurs staked further claim to 3rd place by comfortably dispatching Leicester away with 2 goals to nil. Son scored another peach of a goal and Alli added the second for Spurs to secure victory. Tottenham may be 6 points adrift of the summit but the Spurs go marching on.
Arsenal also registered a win against Huddersfield after Torreira netted to gift Arsenal all 3 points in the 83rd minute of the match (very lucky indeed!!). Manchester United who are definitely a shadow of what they used to be (especially under the stewardship of Sir Alex) recorded a 4-1 victory against a struggling Fulham side. To be fair Jose, it was only Fulham (I’m just saying).
Singing the blues!!!
