Soccer Round Up

  • After seeing rivals City beat Fulham, and by drawing 1-1 at Tottenham, Manchester United’s lead at the top of the Premiership is down to five points.  Clint Dempsey hit a dramatic ‘Fergie-time’ equaliser for Spurs to cancel out Robin van Persie’s 21st goal of the season for the Reds.
  • Chelsea kept in touch by beating Arsenal 2-1.  Frank Lampard’s 195th goal for the StamfordBridge club puts him seven behind Bobby Tambling’s club record of 202.
  • Michael Owen struck his first goal for Stoke who lost 3-1 at Swansea… Reading won at Newcastle for the first time ever… Daniel Sturridge made it three goals in his first three games for Liverpool who walloped Norwich 5-0. The last Reds’ player to achieve a three in three feat was Ray Kennedy in 1974… And QPR (who’ve got rid of Djibril Cisse) earned a point at West Ham for whom Joe Cole scored his first goal for 10 years.
  • Southampton sacked manager Nigel Adkins three days before Monday’s home PL game with Everton, replacing him with unknown Argentinian Mauricio Potchettino. The fans aren’t happy!
  • It’s ‘Cities’ 1-2-3 in the Championship with Cardiff leading Leicester and Hull by 10 points.
  • Barcelona (2-0 up and despite another Lionel Messi goal) lost in La Liga for the first time this season, beaten 3-2 by mid-table Real Sociedad.
  • Watch out for some interesting deals this week with the ‘transfer window’ closing next Tuesday.
