Premier League: Chelsea on top, Tottenham makes history

Premier League: Chelsea on top, Tottenham makes history

Saturday matches presented us the battles between the most prominent coaches in the League.

The clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Emirates Stadium brought three points to the Blues. Fernando Torres found the target in the first half, yet Gervinho scored an equalizer for Arsenal. Early in the second half Mata netted the ball from the free-kick, and despite the Gunners created a number of chances to grab a draw, Petr Cech was too good in the post, averting the challengers. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger stated his side lacked authority and decisiveness in the defensive line, conceding unacceptable goals.

Tottenham took the lead through Jan Vertonghen and Gareth Bale goals in the game against Manchester United, and even though Nani and Shinji Kagawa netted the ball for the Red Devils it was Clint Dempsey who scored a winner for the Spurs, granting the capital club their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989.

After the game United manager Sir Alex Fergusson claimed he was disappointed with the end result, admitting the team played poorly in the first half, losing a goal after two minutes. The Scottish specialist also claimed that four minutes of injury time denied his team a proper chance to equalize in the game as ‘In the second half we were terrific, it was a great performance, and we were unlucky not to win it’. Andre Villas-Boas on the other hand was more than delighted and said his team made history, putting a lot of effort and desire in the win. ‘It’s a big night for the club but we have to continue with this kind of form’ added the Portuguese coach.

The results of the 6th playing day:
Man Utd 2-3 Tottenham
Everton 3-1 Southampton
Fulham 1-2 Man City
