Here is a review of major football highlights from the weekend.
Arsenal looking like it
The Gunners shot down a high-flying Watford right in their home, scoring thrice and conceding none. This follows a similar thrashing of powerhouses Manchester United in clinical fashion last time out. Theo Walcott has already claimed this could be their year after an 11-year wait, and they are looking like it. Many hope that this steamy mode won’t get drowned in German showers when they face Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
Ronaldo roars and soars
The mercurial goal-machine went a step further at cementing his place in football folklore. With his typically masterful strike against Levante on Saturday, Ronaldo edged Raul Gonzalez as Real Madrid’s all-time highest goalscorer. Forza Cristiano!
Jurgen got Liverpool Klopping away
High pressing, high octane, calculated aggression and technical doggedness, these words summarize Liverpool’s game plan against Tottenham in Jurgen klopp’s EPL opener. With additional help from Simon Mignolet’s masterful manning of Liverpool’s goal, it all worked in the Reds favour as they secured a point away from home.
Beware! The Foxes are coming!
Leicester City under the expertise and experience of The Tinker man, are steadily dusting off the fluke tag on them. Their star manm Jamie Vardy, showed why he is more than worthy of England honours as he snatched two goals at St Mary’s to stretch Leicester’s unbeaten away run to eight games.
Raheem was Sterling in Kun’s absence.
The most-expensive English player got on the score sheet three times as Manchester City thrashed Bournemouth 5 goals to 1. Kevin DeBruyne gave another kingly performance in the process and Pellegrini couldn’t be happier.
Mourinho eventually got some calvary
Though with an unarguably unconvincing display, the Blues got a 2-0 win over flailing Aston Villa at the Bridge. The relief in the atmosphere was clear, even as the billionaire owner, Abramovich, was seen clapping away in satisfaction post-match. Is Mourhino job saved? Time will tell, for now, he’s got some calvary.
‘Blood’ as Italian heavyweights clashed
8 different players received carded cautions as Inter Milan and Juventus went head-to-head in Derby d’Italia. The result wasn’t farfetched as the 90 minutes of grit only bore a bland goalless draw. Inter Milan maintained their good start to the season though as they remained in 3rd place, while Juventus’ flailing run continues.
